Frequently Asked Questions
Are the remedies safe?I use this method for myself and my family. And have done for many years.
What qualifications do you have?I have undergone long and thorough training in various branches of complementary medicine. See the section 'About Me'.
Do I have to take the remedies as you say? What if I forget a dose?Forgetting a single, or an occasional dose will not be significant. If you find you regularly miss doses then I would recommend you telephone me .
I will find it difficult to follow your lifestyle/dietary advice. Does it matter?Obviously, any benefits that might have occurred as a result of following the advice will not occur. But remember it is always your choice. I cannot, nor would I want, to force you to do something which makes you unhappy.
How many sessions will I need?This is very difficult to answer. We are working through energetic layers. So it depends on the number of what I have described as 'toxins' to which you are subject, how deeply, and how long-established they are within your system, as well as your general level of health, your lifestyle and your diet.
What about allergies?I see allergies and sensitivities as just symptoms of what is going on at a deeper level. I will test to see if there are substances that are putting stress on your system with the aim of cutting down or eliminating those stresses while you are trying to get well. If indicated by kinesiology test, I will recommend homoeopathic remedies with the aim of desensitising you to food sensitivites and inhalant allergies such as pollen, house dust etc.
Has any research been done to show the efficacy and safety of these therapies?Research is an enormously important part of the ongoing development of therapeutic methods.
Complementary Medicine does not always lend itself to the more conventional, main stream medicine controlled trials, because the philosophy behind the therapies is very different. However, a significant amount of research into the efficacy and safety of the therapies has been, and continues to be carried out.
For further information on this please refer to the Societies to which I am a registered member as outlined below.
Less formal research can be undertaken by yourself in asking friends and acquaintances about their experiences with the various therapies.
Research into the efficacy of Homeopathy can be accessed via the Society of Homeopaths(See link)
Research into Craniosacral Therapy can be accessed via the Craniosacral Therapy Society (See Link)
Research into Kinesiology can be accessed through the Association of Systematic Kinesiologists (See link)
Research into Nutrition can be accessed through the British Association of Nutritional Therapists (See link)
Research into Allergy and sensitivity can be accessed through The Institute for Allergy and Environmental Therapy (See Link)
Again, I must stress that the system of medicine I use is not at present recognised by the official medical bodies in this country.
It is your choice how far you accept my energetic diagnosis and treatment plan. Please remember my understanding of health and disease is based on a different model from that understood and used by the large majority of conventional doctors and by the 'orthodox' scientific authorities. Therefore my diagnoses are not based on their model - they are based on an energy model.
My hope and wish is that homoeopaths and other complementary practitioners will, in the near future, work together with orthodox practitioners so that each shares their expertise to bring the greatest benefit to people who are suffering. Already some doctors refer patients to me.
