HOMEOPATHY FOR WOMEN'S HORMONAL HEALTH
I have successfully treated women with the following conditions:-
Irregular or stopped periods, PMS (premenstrual syndrome), PMT (premenstrual tension), PMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder), polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS)
Hot flushes, night sweats, hair loss or thinning, 'flooding' (menorrhagia), mood swings, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping (insomnia), anxiety, depression, difficulty concentrating, low energy, tiredness
Most of my female patients before coming to me have tried everything to get well or relieve their symptoms. As you will see from my case examples below, homeopathy offers a real alternative.
SUCCESS STORIES - women's health - infertility, periods stopped, menopause, post hysterectomy, low libido, flooding etc.
The benefits of patients using homeopathy for female hormonal problems are significant, as drug or other interventions can often be avoided.
Below are some of my cases summaries for female hormonal problems:-
SUCCESS STORY - infertility, depression, periods stopped (amenorrhoea), conception
My patient in her 20s had not had a period in five years, and was desperate to have a baby. She had already undergone IVF treatment which had been unsuccessful. I prescribed homeopathic remedies to clear toxins and address her depression about her ongoing difficulties.
After two consultations with me, my patient's menstrual cycle returned and she conceived a couple of months later. I am happy to learn that she recently gave birth to a baby girl.
SUCCESS STORY - amenorrhoea (periods stopped), emotional shock
My patient in her 30s consulted me because she hadn’t had a period for 7 months. I enquired as to what was going on in her life around that time. She told me that her husband had collapsed - but he was ok now. She started to cry. I gave her a homeopathic remedy for shock and upset.
When my patient’s husband came for his consultation, he reported that his wife’s period had started soon after she took her homeopathic remedy.
SUCCESS STORY - back pain, hysterectomy, hormonal imbalance, insomnia, tiredness, guilt, worry, depression
My patient in her 40s had been treated for back pain by two chiropractors for the past 5 years which had not helped. She said it felt like a bruised coccyx. She'd had a hysterectomy 20 years previously. She suffered insomnia and was tired on waking. She said she felt old. Her other symptoms were catarrh, bloating, feeling guilty, worried and burdened. She cried a lot when recalling mother’s death. Overall, I felt she was depressed.
I prescribed three remedies to address her hormonal imbalance, her grief and her compulsion to take on too much for the family.
One month later, she came for her follow up appointment. She looked ten years younger and fantastic. She told me she had much more energy and felt happy. To me she seemed carefree. All her symptoms had gone but for catarrh and bloating. I prescribed one of the remedies I had previously given which resolved those last two symptoms.
SUCCESS STORY - low libido, female hormonal problems, tiredness, and anger
Patient age 31 whose main concern was her low libido. She said her libido ‘had gone’ following the birth of her first child. She felt angry and tired. She was worried that her lack of libido would cause problems in her relationship.
I prescribed one remedy which fitted all of her symptoms.
At her follow up appointment one month later, she told me that she was delighted that her libido had returned, and said, “Why didn’t I know about this years ago?”
SUCCESS STORY - menopause, flooding (very heavy periods), female hormonal problems
The first thing my 43 year old female patient said to me was, “I’m bleeding to death.” She was experiencing almost constant periods with massive flooding. She had been put on hormones by her GP but was no better. Previously she had had a coil, and been on the contraceptive pill.
I prescribed two remedies to address loss in fluids, the and the hormonal imbalance.
At her follow up appointment one month later, my patient told me that she had had a 26 day cycle with an 8 day bleed but had had some spotting. Her hormone levels had been tested by her GP and found to be ‘normal.’
I prescribed a new remedy based on her overall symptoms.
At her next follow up appointment, my patient described herself as feeling very well. She had had a 32 day cycle, with a 5 day bleed, with no bleeding in between. She now had a lot more energy. She had consulted her GP who agreed who agreed that she no longer needed to take the hormone treatment that he had previously prescribed.
COULD YOUR EMOTIONS BE HURTING YOUR HEALTH?
In my experience as a homeopath and healer, negative emotions are a significant factor in the development of chronic health problems, often the MAIN factor.
Negative emotions, if not resolved, will be stored in the body somewhere, and forgotten about.
They can be there for years, decades, being added to with new hurts.
Most of the emotion will be hidden, like an iceberg.
Negative emotions are toxic
Negative emotions eventually hurt the body, and they reside in places that are of a similar toxic vibration. In traditional medicine, we learn that anger hurts the liver, but the liver is also our primary detoxification organ. So, the more anger we hold onto, the more toxic we get.
Sadness can be stored in the heart, or when it’s too painful for the heart, the thymus gland.
Anger, sadness, guilt, disappointment, fear, anxiety and stress etc. when not let go of are all toxic.
Even though hidden, emotions are still partly visible – especially to a trained homeopath. Patients will reveal their hidden emotions through their words, body language and overall energy. For example:-
Being overly cheerful which may be a mask for feelings of sadness.
Their life history shows a pattern of behaving of putting others first (guilt)
Giving examples of strong irritation about little things (anger)
These are signs that negative emotions are a factor in this person’s health.
Fortunately, the body has a warning system that something is wrong – SYMPTOMS.
Symptoms are the language of the body and are important clues as to the cause of dis-ease.
We have been taught that the symptoms are the illness, but they are an EXPRESSION of an illness.
After getting a diagnosis, I advise that the CAUSE is treated, not the symptoms. And this brings me to homeopathy.
Homeopathy will deal with the physical effects resulting from negative emotions, AND will also dissolve emotional pain.
It’s important to say that though emotions play a large part in health, they’re not the only factor. Diet, lifestyle, environmental, and more all play a part.
In a homeopathic consultation, I take a full case history and will explore all possibilities
Contact me to enquire or book a consultation – see my details in the right hand panel.
Some of my case examples below illustrate the effect of a negative emotion to a physical health problem.
Sciatica back pain from sadness grief REAL LIFE CASE
I can't take any credit for this one - I was the patient!
20+ years ago, I had sciatica; pain down the back of my left leg. I could not even walk without pain, let alone run. I had seen my GP, had physiotherapy, and as that didn’t work, had 18 months of chiropractic treatment, and I was still no better.
I was a student homeopath at the time, but hadn’t thought that homeopathy could help back pain. But seeing as nothing else had worked, I booked a consultation with a homeopath.
At my first consultation, I was prescribed a combination remedy. There was no change. A month later, at my next consultation, I was prescribed another remedy in different potencies (strengths) to be taken over 7 days.
Four days after starting the remedies, my sciatica was completely gone, and has never returned!
When I went back to see my homeopath, he told me that he'd given me a remedy called IGNATIA. It's for GRIEF. I had suffered a bereavement prior to my sciatica starting. I had never made the connection.
SUCCESS STORY - haemorrhoids
My patient in his 20s consulted me with haemorrhoids and anal fissures which he’d had for EIGHT YEARS. His local hospital had confirmed this, but they hadn’t started any treatment.
I prescribed two homeopathic remedies to be taken daily. A month later, I received a phone call from my patient who’d had another hospital appointment. After examining him, they told him that two of the fissures had HEALED and they couldn’t see any haemorrhoids!!! (They had healed too).
What accounted for this success so quickly? I had prescribed remedies for suppressed anger. I had picked up on his anger as we talked, though he was overall a very calm and gentle person.
Negative emotions in women's hormonal health problems
In my blog titled Homeopathy for women's hormonal health you will see that negative emotion was usually a factor contributing to a physical health problem.
Depression with arthritis successfully treated REAL LIFE CASE
See my blog titled Homeopathy for depression & psoriatic arthritis for details of arthritis that improved significantly as my patient's depression was treated.
HAEMORRHOIDS PILES - WITH YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED
I recently detailed a case of haemorrhoids quickly and successfully treated with homeopathy. This post proved to be popular and it prompted some questions from readers, which I've answered below. The case summary titled 'Haemorrhoids - successfully treated REAL LIFE CASE' by scrolling up three paragraphs.
Is there a physical examination for haemorrhoids?
No. I will make use of your diagnosis as a starting point. Then I need to know how YOU experience your health problem. No two people will ever experience it the same, and it is the individualisation of symptoms by your description that will determine which homeopathic remedy you need.
What causes haemorrhoids?
These factors increase susceptibility to haemorrhoids:-
Self help advice
If your problem is due to poor tissue elasticity, I recommend Calc Fluor tissue salts four times a day. It may take several months but this will also help similar problems such as varicose veins. And Hamamelis cream is useful. These can be purchased in health food stores.
Is your diet and lifestyle a factor? Can it be improved? Avoid alcohol or cut it down. Do you drink enough water?
If haemorrhoids is one of several health problems you have, that indicates that your different symptoms may be connected, in which case homeopathy would be beneficial.
Homeopathy treats the cause, whether that is problems of toxicity, chronic constipation or diarrhoea, hormonal problems, or unresolved emotions.
How long does homeopathic treatment take?
If you have had a health problem for a long time, assume that you will need more than one consultation. As long as there is some improvement during the first month of treatment, it means your health is on the right track. It’s really important for you to continue treatment so that you progress to achieving your health goals.
Homeopathic remedies re-establish health, so you won’t need to take the remedies forever – just until your body is re-educated.
Homeopathy is a cost effective means of treatment if you take into account that consultations are carried out monthly.
My fees list can be found on my homepage near the end, under the paragraph entitled ‘Fees’.
Is there any medical evidence that homeopathy can help with such things as haemorrhoids?
This is a very good article which begins with explaining the different ways in which homeopathy can be studied, and links to scientific evidence of homeopathy.
Some studies are based on patient outcomes of homeopathic treatment, (rather than on a specific homeopathic remedy). These studies are classed as ‘observational’.
Here is an observational study with regard to haemorrhoids treatment with homeopathy.
This website contains links to numerous clinical studies of a wide range of illnesses. Click here..
The longest observational study of homeopathy by patient outcomes was conducted between 1997 and 2003 at The Bristol Homeopathic Hospital, of 6,544 patients with chronic health problems. 70.7% of those patients reported positive health changes after homeopathic treatment. Further details, such as the various health problems that were monitored in the survey are on my website here.
HOMEOPATHY FOR DEPRESSION & PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS
Mr S consulted me for homeopathic treatment for PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS which he'd had for some years.
His first consultation took around 90 minutes. I told Mr S I would that I would send his homeopathic remedy after I'd reviewed my notes, and taken all factors into account. However, after a couple of days I still hadn't decided on his remedy.
After some time out from thinking, it suddenly it dawned on me that Mr S needed was a homeopathic remedy called AURUM. This is a remedy for deep depression when you feel that all is lost.
It is for someone who has very high expectations of themselves, and has been unable to live up to them, sometimes due to business failure or bankruptcy.
Mr S didn’t tell me he was depressed, because he didn't know.
Mr S didn't realise he was depressed - but his body did
A month later, my patient returned for his second consultation. He no longer had pain and swelling of his joints, and his depressed 'vibe' had gone. He psoriasis hadn't completely gone, but he was delighted with his progress, as was I.
You may wonder whether his arthritis caused him to be depressed, or was it the depression that led to his arthritis? I will never know for certain, but I think it is the latter. Dis-ease usually starts in the mental emotional sphere. See my blog above Could your emotions be hurting your health? for more information.
About Aurum Metallicum (often abbreviated to Aurum)
By the way, Aurum is gold. It’s interesting how what we think about gold is echoed in the remedy version of itself. For example, the phrase ‘gold standard’ (a thing of superior quality which serves as a point of reference against which other things of its type may be compared), and the phrase ‘going for gold’, (attempting to achieve the very best possible outcome for a task or endeavour; a reference to winning a gold medal in a competition).
Homeopathy for depression
Please note – Aurum is one of many homeopathic remedies that could be prescribed for depression. It is not an illness that is suitable for homeopathic self-treatment. There are many factors to take into account including a medications check, your physical symptoms and your health history.
Homeopathy is non-toxic, non-addictive, and has no side effects.
Depression is not NOT caused by a chemical imbalance, It is a SYMPTOM.
Some of the causes of depression are:-
Homeopathy is effective in treating a wide range of health problems, physical or mental/emotional by healing the cause of the problem.

HOMEOPATHY & CHRONIC FATIGUE, TIRED ALL THE TIME
Mrs A consulted me with chronic fatigue. She told me it had started with vomiting and diarrhoea after drinking contaminated water. Apparently she was on holiday at a campsite and she drank from a tap on the site. Only afterwards did she notice that there were “things swimming in it.”
After the vomiting and diarrhoea subsided, she didn’t recover properly. Her energy had taken a nose dive and she went on to develop chronic fatigue. She spent most of her daytime lying on her sofa as she felt physically and mentally wiped out. I had known Mrs A for a long time as a friend, and she'd always been very upbeat and active. This really wan't like her at all.
I gave her the homeopathic remedy Arsenicum Album, and there was a marked improvement straightaway.
When I next saw her a month later, she told me she had been doing A LOT of gardening and physical activity whereas a month ago, even the smallest exertion was an effort. She looked happier and healthier too.
Arsenicum Album is given in chronic ailments to the type of person who is very organised and perfectionist. When ill, they tend to be exhausted and may suffer from burning pains. In acute situations, this remedy is given for food poisoning from food that’s gone off or contaminated water! So the remedy fitted on all levels.
Causes of chronic fatigue
Homeopathy works by treating the cause and the ‘whole person’ (not just their symptoms, so it can deal with the various causes of chronic fatigue, such as:-
Exhausted tired after anaesthetic
Some years ago, I had eye surgery with a general anaesthetic. After nearly two weeks on leave to recover, I was due to resume work in two days time. But I was EXHAUSTED. All I wanted to do was sleep. I contacted my homeopath (as I was in a brain fog), who told me to take the homeopathic remedy Phosphorus which I did. Within a few hours, I felt like I’d come back to life again, and I went back to work feeling fine.
How did it work? The homeopathic remedy Phosphorus enabled my liver to process and eliminate the anaesthetic,
Chronic fatigue & chemical sensitivity and electromagnetic EMF sensitivity
People who need Phosphorus are sensitive to chemicals, odours, and electro-magnetic radiation, as well as being sympathetic, and possibly psychic – in other words, too open. Chemical and EMF sensitivity can become chronic problems for some people. Homeopathy can help. contact me for advice.
Chronic fatigue syndrome treatment success
72% of patients with chronic fatigue syndrome who received homeopathic treatment reported positive health changes. Read details of the study here.
HOMEOPATHY & HEALING IN CHRONIC PAIN TREATMENT
In UK news recently, health officials have said that painkillers should not be prescribed for chronic pain, as they can do “more harm than good.” and new research shows that the drugs commonly prescribed to control pain made no difference.
And there is a risk that long time use of painkillers will lead to addiction.
You can read the NICE report here.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain is pain that carries on for longer than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment.
Natural medicine offers solutions to chronic pain
Natural medicine, like homeopathy is safe, non-addictive and treats the CAUSE of the pain. When you heal the cause of the problem, the symptoms no longer exist.
And it works even if you’ve had symptoms for a long time. Read my success stories below.
Pain is a sign that something needs to be healed. Treating only the symptoms (using painkillers) does not heal the cause, so symptoms will persist. In addition, long term use of painkillers is detrimental to your health, as NICE have stated in their report.
Chronic back pain - my story
I know personally how depressing and debilitating long term pain can be, and how relief from pain can change your life. Many years ago I suffered with excruciating back pain for which I had consulted my GP, and had the physiotherapy that was advised. This made no difference so I spent 18 months having chiropractic treatment. Eventually I accepted that I wasn't any better. By then I was a first year student in my homeopathy training, I booked a consultation with a homeopath and my back pain completely cleared up within two months of treatment.
Natural therapies for treating chronic pain
I recommend homeopathy for most physical problems including chronic pain. A homeopath will take everything into account, all your symptoms, your health history, your lifestyle, your mental and emotional state, and environmental influences.
Homeopathy for pain of 27 years duration – success story
Mr Y, a patient in his 50s consulted me regarding his painful migraine headaches, which happened once or twice each week and had gone on for the last 27 YEARS! Just before a headache started, he became ravenously hungry. It was this unusual symptom that led me to prescribe the homeopathic remedy I prescribed.
When I next saw Mr Y, his headaches had COMPLETELY STOPPED, and he looked much healthier. I stayed in contact with Mr Y - his headaches never returned.
Sound Healing for the treatment of pain
During a Sound Healing session you can relax and switch off. In a Sound Healing you will experience a state of deep relaxation, but you will be fully conscious and aware of your surroundings. You can read more about Sound Healing here.
Sound Healing success story
Sound has been used for thousands of years to bring about healing. This is the story of someone I treated for chronic pain:-
I was consulted by Mr J, a man in his thirties who was experiencing constant pain due to injuries sustained in a road traffic accident a decade earlier. He had difficulty walking and was in severe pain. Because of the pain and stiffness Mr J found it was easier to remain seated for the healing.
After the healing, I could not help noticing how different Mr J now looked - peaceful and relaxed with no indication of pain in his expression or demeanour. We discussed his experience of the healing session before our session was completed.
Some 30 minutes after leaving, Mr J telephoned me to tell me quite excitedly, that for the first time in ten years he had been able to reverse his van onto his drive. The pain and stiffness that had prevented him from carrying out this manoeuvre HAD GONE.
It was a delight to hear this news from Mr J, but I was even more surprised by the change in the one of his voice. Our voice expresses who we are in totality. After a healing, our vibration is changed, and this can be noticeable in our voice.
I didn’t see Mr J until three years and during that time he was well and free of pain.
I hope you feel inspired and hopeful that solutions to chronic pain do exist.

ARTHRITIS IMPROVEMENTS IN THREE WEEKS – SEE PHOTOS!
A picture paints a thousand words so they say. I was delighted to receive these photographs taken by a relative of my patient who had the foresight to take photos show the effect of his homeopathic treatment.
I have only seen this patient on one occasion so far, so he hasn’t been taking homeopathic remedies for long.
Even in that short time, his improvements are remarkable, in THREE WEEKS ONLY!
There are two images, with two photos on each, of his right hand – before and after, and his left hand – before and after.
You can see that his fingers have started to straighten. The patient’s relative says, “There is definitely less inflammation and a greater range of movement in his middle three fingers on both hands.”
