What is homeopathy?

Homeopaths believe that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the person who needs treatment not the disease.


Homeopathy is a gentle and effective system of medicine used to treat a wide range of acute and more long-term problems. A remedy is prescribed which stimulates the body's own healing mechanism and gently supports that process.




What happens at a consultation?


A first appointment in homeopathy at the Beacon Clinic Malvern takes about an hour. We will talk about the problem you have come with and will also cover your lifestyle, diet, sleep, likes, dislikes and how you feel on a mental and emotional level. Details of your energy levels, past medical history, the way you react to stress and what you do to relax are all helpful. All information you give will be treated in strictest confidence.

The three main homeopathic principles.


In 1786 a German doctor, Samuel Hahnemann, developed a system of medicine, which he called homeopathy, the three principles are:-

What will the treatment be like?

The treatment will usually be in the form of tablet or tablets. Sometimes we will give you a daily dose depending on your energy levels and the nature of the main complaint.

Occasionally ‘homoeopathic aggravation' occurs with a brief return of some old symptoms. If this happens it is likely to be a brief return of some old symptoms and should be thought of as 'spring cleaning'. These symptoms will pass and are best left untreated, as they are an important part of the healing process. If however anything happens that concerns you, you can always ring and talk it through.

Homoeopathic remedies are non-toxic and you cannot become addicted to them. They are safe and gentle enough to be used during pregnancy and for young babies and children.

Can I use homeopathy alongside other medication?

Homeopathy is compatible with most prescribed drugs and treatments. If the symptoms improve to such an extent that the patient is interested in reducing their prescribed medication we always advise the patient to go back to their GP to discuss the matter.

We always refer back to the GP if the patient has any symptoms that need further assessment.

How long does the treatment last?

This varies for each individual depending on how long they have had the complaint and their overall state of health. Acute complaints tend to improve rapidly whilst slowly developing or deep seated complaints can take longer. Babies and children progress generally faster as their energy is better.


With chronic complaints we tend to agree a contract of appointments, usually four, with the patient. Homeopathy is not a quick fix and chronic symptoms usually need several months of treatment before satisfactory long term improvement is achieved. The body heals itself as fast as it is able, patience and the recognition of working with the natural healing process are also required.
