Homeopathic Therapies and Homeopathic Treatments
Homeopathic remedies are normally given as small sugar pills, so are very palatable to children and adults alike. Sometimes they are made as a liquid to drop in the mouth or even a spray. Patients would normally see a homeopath on a monthly basis, to allow the body time to heal. It can be used alongside traditional medicines without harm. It is safe and gentle enough to be used on babies, children, elderly people, and animals!

Bach Flower Remedies.
What are Bach flower remedies?
Dr Edward Bach believed that a disharmony between the physical body and the mind, was the cause of illness. He used active flower, plant and tree essences to heal certain conditions.
The remedies are normally given as a liquid form in a dropper bottle for ease of administration. They have a different energy to homeopathic remedies and can work beautifully together to bring about a gentle healing process for the patient. They can be used topically, directly on the tongue or added to any drink.
What can Bach Flower remedies help with?
The remedies are good for mental/ emotional issues which can often be the cause of physical problems. The patient’s current state of mind is key, as well as how she feels when suffering from her illness. Her overall personality is also taken into account.
