These case stories are just small but fascinating snippets from a much longer story and path of exploration. They serve to give an idea of how a remedy can work and how we can sometimes discover something very unusual and interesting together with our patients, something which seems to be the source and healing power of the remedy.
A consultation with us typically takes around two hours. After reflecting deeply on what we learned from the consultation, we work systematically homeopathic reference material (Repertory and Materia Medica) to arrive at a matching remedy.
We have presented these case stories as an interesting window for you to take a glimpse through. Your consultation itself will be more like walking through the whole house, being guided into many different inner spaces and experiences.
Homeopathy is an effective system of healing which assists the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. It recognises that symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the patient who needs treatment not the disease.
In 1796, a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, discovered a different approach to the cure of the sick which he called homeopathy (from the Greek words meaning 'similar suffering'). Like Hippocrates two thousand years earlier, he realised there were two ways of treating ill health: the way of opposites, most commonly used by conventional medicine and the way of similars.
