What can you expect in my appointment?
My treatment of patients with any condition begins with a full case history spanning at least an hour.
At this point I review blood tests and special investigations not older than the last 6 months, conduct a physical examination of my patients where necessary and then send for blood tests, ultrasounds or X-rays where needed.
During this time I address key issues relating to diet and lifestyle which may be influencing the patients health or main complaint. Thereafter, I compound the relevant remedy for the patients case along with any other supplements needed to rectify any deficiencies or to support or protect certain organs or systems. Patient improvement is then monitored over the course of a 3 to 4 month period where repeat special investigations such as blood tests may be repeated so as to assess any changes.
Homeopathy aims to treat the whole person and to stimulate the body to heal itself.
Homeopathy aims to address why your symptoms are occurring and is tailored to you the individual.
Symptoms are the body’s natural defence mechanisms and are clues to diagnosing the underlying health problems.
Homeopaths prescribe remedies that are made from minute amounts of natural substances.
Homeopathic medicines can be used in conjunction with your existing medication. They have no side effects and are cost effective.
Live Blood Analysis
What does it entail?
Live blood analysis starts with your doctor taking a drop of blood from your finger and placing it under a microscope that magnifies it 1000 times.
The result of the live blood analyis is displayed on a screen, which you can see, and he then does an analysis of the blood, explaining as he goes along.
You can see individual red blood cells, white blood cells, your platelets, and what state your immune system is in.
The focus is on the quality of the blood and not the quantity. By analyzing the blood he can determine anything from free radical damage, stress on the liver and kidneys, whether there is candida or toxins present etc. From these results he can get to the root cause of why you have certain health conditions.
So where to from here?
The first step is to get your body into balance in order for it to start healing itself. This is done by correcting your eating programme in conjunction with supplements.
