Michelle is a mother to 3 children and discovered homeopathy while attending pre-natal yoga classes for her first child in Lexilip over 22 years ago. She saw first hand how homeopathy worked when raising her children with a variety of complaints. It was quickly obvious how homeopathy is a natural, gentle way to help the body heal itself.

Michelle has helped with complaints like eczemas, colic, asthma, recurrent infections, coughs, colds, mental and emotional complaints like anxiety, depression, PTSD and much more.

Homeopathic Consultations

Attending a homeopath is a little different to attending a GP. The consultation will be longer with much more patient participation and inclusion.

First Visit

The first visit usually lasts about 60-90mins. Follow-up appointments are shorter depending on the nature of the complaint. The Homeopath will ask about the symptoms of the presenting complaint along with any medical, surgical history in the past. Because homeopathy treats people based on individuality, people experiencing similar ailments will often actually receive different remedies. Symptoms are seen always in the context of the person who is experiencing them, and each individual will have their own unique expression of disease and illness.

For example one person experiencing headache may find that light aggravates their pain while another person feels better for light. Also someone with a toothache may get relief with warm water while another person may be aggravated by warm water.

After the First Visit

The Homeopath will study your case notes before selecting a remedy that matches the symptoms of the complaint.

Follow-up appointments are usually 4-6 weeks later. During these appointments the homeopath will assess the patient for improvements and another prescription is made until symptoms are eased completely.

What is Homeopathy - Homeopathy Explained

I get asked this question all the time from 'What is Homeopathy?', 'Does homeopathy Work?', 'What does a homeopath do?', ' What is a homeopathic consultation like?' and so on and so well let me explain.

Homeopathy is a holistic medicine, treating the whole person not just the symptoms of disease. It is a safe, effective, non-invasive and gentle form of treatment.

Homeopathy uses naturally occurring substances in the form of remedies which come from plants, minerals and the animal kingdom. For example we have remedies made from nettles, granite and even snake venom.

Remedies are made in a homeopathic pharmacy where substances go through serial dilution which means they interact in a very gentle way with the body.

Side Effects?

There are no side effects from using homeopathy. Remedies do not interfere with medications. Remedies are extremely dilute which makes them very safe yet at the same time they are sufficiently strong to stimulate the bodies natural healing abilities. Homeopathy is totally Complimentary and Natural.

How long does treatment take?

Complaints can be acute or chronic and it depends on how long the patient is suffering with the presenting symptoms. It also depends on the patients response to the remedies.

What attracts people to Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is appealing to people who prefer a natural approach to health. Homeopathic remedies are safe to take with no side effects and can be taken at the same time as other prescribed medication. Homeopathy is also cost effective, not tested on animals and eco-friendly.

Homeopathy is effective in treating physical, mental and emotional complaints including;

How Does Homeopathy Work?

Homeopathy stimulates the bodys ability to fight infection and susceptibility to disease. It strengthens the immune system and over-all wellbeing. It is a completely natural way to get and stay healthy.
