Good Health - Homeopathy
What is homeopathy - homeopathy is a complete and holistic system of medicine that considers the mental, emotional and physical aspects of the individual. It treats the whole person, not just the disease, and has a remarkably effective approach to restoring health and vitality.
Within this context, homeopathy has the ability to treat most modern-day acute and chronic complaints.
Acute complaints include colds, coughs, earaches, sore throats, injuries and fevers. Chronic complaints require a more detailed case analysis of the patient's mental, emotional and physical symptoms. Common chronic complaints that homeopaths frequently and successfully treat include arthritis, asthma, skin conditions, digestive problems, emotional problems, depression, migraine and menstrual imbalances.
Though the range of diseases treated is very wide, the experience
of being treated leaves the patient feeling better in themselves and able to
make beneficial changes in their lives as a result of improved
History of homeopathy - Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician, pioneered this new system of medicine in the 18th century, after turning away from the crude methods of his orthodox counterparts.
The word homeopathy comes from the Greek 'homo' meaning similar and 'pathos' meaning suffering.
The main principle of homeopathy is 'like cures like' (similia similibus curentur) which states that any substance causing symptoms to appear in a healthy person can cure the same symptoms in a sick person.
The homeopathic approach uses substances that have been diluted and succussed (potentised). These remedies stimulate the body to heal itself and return to a state of healthy balance.
The local homeopathic practitioner in Horsham, is Rachel Lucas SDS Hom MARH and here is a little bit about her and the good work she does:
Hello my name is Rachel Lucas. I have worked in Horsham as a homeopath since I qualified in 2003. I am constantly in awe of the gentle but powerful healing that homeopathic remedies can elicit. I work with all ages of clients from babies, children and pregnant women, through teenage, adulthood, menopause and on. At the heart of homeopathy is individualisation so each appointment and prescription is tailor made to the client and their needs. When required, nutritional and lifestyle advice is given alongside the homeopathic prescription. I stock high quality ‘food state’ supplements which are available to clients at a competitive price.
I work from an office attached to my house and also offer home visits. I offer telephone consultations for acutes (eg coughs, colds, stomach upsets, fevers etc).
For several years I have
run a popular hay fever promotion. Homeopathy helps most people with hay fever quickly without unwanted side effects. Imagine being free of itchy eyes, streaming nose etc and able to enjoy the beautiful seasons of spring and summer!
"Until I came to see you I was depressed every winter and wondered how I would get through. After homeopathic treatment it was as if the sun shone. You are very astute and intuitive” Jane, Southwater.
"I first contacted Rachel after my GP had tried and failed several times to ease my then 2 year olds eczema. After a wonderfully detailed initial consultation where Rachel took time to gently get to know my son I was thrilled when the remedy prescribed not only eased his eczema symptoms but seemed to boost his overall well being. When my son developed hay fever the following year I again went to see Rachel and was prescribed a remedy which very quickly eased his symptoms and allowed him to breathe properly once more. My son is now 5 and when his immune system took the inevitable clobbering that comes with starting school it was wonderful to be able to support him through the use of homeopathic remedies provided by Rachel. I would urge any parent to consider homeopathy as a way to support their own health and that of their children's and I thoroughly recommend Rachel as a knowledgeable, experienced and insightful practitioner." Sarah and Dylan, Horsham.
"I have been a sufferer of RLS ( Restless Legs Syndrome ) for many years. Initially I tried various medications but after being on a high dosage for some time I wanted to try more of a natural solution. I was always a bit sceptical about the idea of Homeopathy but when hearing the improvements it has provided for others I decided to give it a go. I was recommended to get in contact with Rachel Lucas, who I was easily able to get in touch with. We discussed my condition in various consultations and Rachel was able to provide me with the best remedies that suited me. I have been following Rachel`s advice and recommendations for a couple of months now and the improvements are quite significant. My symptoms have become a lot more manageable and I prefer the nature of the treatment compared to the medication used. I have also been impressed with Rachel's help and assistance; she is always there to discuss any concerns and advise the best way forward. I would not hesitate to recommend Rachel to other sufferers and would hope she would be able to help in the same way she has helped me manage my condition." David, Horsham.
