Eczema, that annoying itch!

Lizzy came to see me as she was coming up to her exams and was feeling quite stressed. Her skin flared up into raised rash like lumps on her legs and would itch and burn. "I scratch at them, it feels good while I'm scratching then it burns" I approached this case holistically, looking at the whole picture and not just the skin condition. This way I could prescribe a remedy that would work constitutionally, addressing all the issues that Lizzy came to see me with and not just the skin condition. After all Lizzy is more than just a skin condition! It is easy to get drawn into feeling like your ailment defines who you are. This is not true. Working closely with the client and including them in

S.A.D has set me back

Poppy first came to see me several years ago because she was suffering with fluid retention and bronchitis. Treated with remedies she responded really well and now the swelling in her legs has diminished and her chest is clear. She recently came to see me because she was feeling down “my SAD has set me back”. I spent some time with Poppy ascertaining how the Seasonal Affective Disorder was effecting her. She was always a very up beat character, embracing the day but was so down she struggled to smile and found it hard looking on the brighter side. Being an artist she often spoke about colours and would surround herself with colourful artifacts to “brighten her day”. I prescribed a remedy

A case of depression

Stephanie came to see me following the breakup in her relationship. She was very low and lacked confidence and self esteem. This case had very few physical symptoms but was mainly emotional and so I focused on treating Stephanie’s emotionally wellbeing. I took time to gather as much information as I could so that I could choose the best remedy to fit Stephanie’s symptoms. I felt that her symptoms were so deep that it may take some time to establish a connection with her and that it may take several months to get on top of Stephanie’s emotional state. After the first remedy, Stephanie felt slightly better, but as her ex boyfriend still lived nearby this could be considered an obstacle to

I have waves of anxiety

“I have waves of anxiety, hot shaky, feel sick, sweaty palms, panicked” Anxiety is a condition that people are becoming more aware of thanks to more people in the public eye talking about their experiences. This is good news to sufferers as makes their condition more understood and therefore less hidden. This is the case of Harriet who came to see me after suffering with anxiety since aged 16 yrs (now 22yrs). After treatment with anti depressants, Harriet hated the side effects so came off them, had counselling, but didn’t like the process. So had been struggling on her own for some time. When I first met Harriet, she was very very anxious. Visibly shaking, tearful, sweaty palms, ringi

A Case of ADHD

Billy was 7 years old and recently diagnosed with ADHD. He was brought to see me because his parents did not want him on medication. He recently came off his medication because it caused him to develop a facial tic, huge anxiety and weight loss. He was described "as an extra confident boy and that nothing phased him." On talking to Billy he was able to tell me he was frightened to stay in his bedroom at night. This caused disturbed sleep for both Billy and his parents as he would come into their bed each night. The facial tics were evident, even after coming off his medication, so I would address this along with his behavioural issues with constitutional treatment. I prescribed a remedy

A Case of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

“I am always tired and need to sleep, I want my life back, I want my confidence back” Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) affects many people of all ages. The most common cause is following an infection such as in this case, Glandular Fever. This condition is difficult to treat conventionally and often antidepressants are prescribed. Following this infection two years previously, Alex’s mum contacted me. Alex was now 21 years old but due to the severity of her fatigue and the anxiety she suffered, it was decided that a Skype consultation would be beneficial. Presenting symptoms: constant fatigue depression bloating sugar cravings weakness mind full of worries and want of self confidence
