Linda Allam, Homeopath, LICH in practice since 1995
The healing art of Homeopathy is a profoundly effective, yet safe and gentle system of healing, which works by stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is a holistic practice that views all symptoms of disease merely as an expression of disharmony within the person as a whole. The Homeopath therefore recognizes the importance of individuality of the person and not just of the disease.
The most fundamental principle of Homeopathy is the Law of Similars or “like cures like”. The Homeopath aims to prescribe a remedy that mimics the ‘state’ the sick person is in. The chosen remedy will stimulate their vital force into action to enable the body to do its own healing.
Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic and safe, therefore do not cause harmful side effects, are non-addictive and can be safely used by babies, children, during pregnancy and adults of all ages.
Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), founded the practice of Homeopathy in Germany, spreading widely across Europe to the UK and the USA. Since then, it has become firmly established in many countries around the world.
In the UK, The British Homeopathic Society was set up in 1849. Since the establishment of the National Health Service in 1946, Homeopathy was included as an officially approved method of treatment. Today, Homeopathy continues to be popularly voted as the No. 1 ‘Alternative Medicine’.
What Happens in a Consultation?
During a consultation, you will get the opportunity to talk about you as a whole person — your physical, emotional and mental symptoms will be discussed to get a picture of you as a whole. It’s rather like a jigsaw puzzle, putting all the pieces together to create the whole picture. The client is asked to describe in detail their complaints, how they experience them, their reactions to them and how it affects their lives. The Homeopath sees the diseased state as a body-mind process, so will ask about their emotional and mental states as they are important guiding symptoms. A treatment plan is devised and a homeopathic remedy given usually in tablet form.
* You will be asked to complete a personal/family health questionnaire prior to appointment
* The initial consultation will last between 1 to 2 hours; follow-ups will take up to 1 hour and usually 4-6 weeks after taking first remedy.
* The consultation fee includes the homeopathic remedy if I have it in store, otherwise it will be ordered in from the homeopathic pharmacy at your cost.
* The number of consultations will vary from person to person and this will be discussed at the initial appointment.
What can treatment help with?
It is a well stated and recognized fact now that the effects of emotional traumas are often the underlying cause of disease which manifest as anxiety, panic attacks, depression, phobias etc. Emotional traumas can manifest from the birth process, effects of poor parenting, bereavement, grief, rejection, divorce, guilt, shocks or accidents are some of the roots of disease which can be successfully treated.
Homeopathy can also help with common problems like flu, migraine, sinusitis, tonsillitis, irritable bowel, asthma, arthritis, bladder problems, stress, low energy, chronic fatigue, auto-immune diseases, menstruation, menopause and sleeping disorders.
With teenagers, such things as emotional complaints, stress, exam nerves, mental exhaustion, acne and spots, onset of periods/period problems and eating disorders can be helped.
For babies and children, colic, teething, skin eruptions, bedwetting, fears and phobias, coughs and colds, earaches, tonsillitis, learning difficulties and the usual children’s diseases along with inherited weaknesses and tendencies.
All these and more can be helped with Homeopathy.
About myself & Homeopathy
My first introduction to Homeopathy was as a patient in 1985 and it literally changed my life. So much so, that 10 years later (after 5 years of study), I qualified as a Homeopath with the London International School of Homeopathy whilst living in Cairo. I went on to be a Homeopathic trainer in Cairo and set up the foundations for the first Homeopathic School in Egypt which is still training new homeopaths today.
Over the past 35 years I have trained in many other holistic healing modalities to gain a better insight into how I can assist my own healing capacities and to help others do the same.
I am also grateful to be a Senior Yoga+Mindfulness teacher; those skills and experience compliment the holistic approach to homeopathy for our health and well-being.
I continue to practice Homeopathy and teach Yoga+Mindfulness in West Cumbria.
