Condition: Mastitis (Cow)

How you found homeopathy.
How it benefited you or your family.
About eight different remedies to the different types of mastitis, which brings success. After making a commitment to convert the farm to organic methods it was clear that we need to to find another way to deal with disease than reliance upon conventional drugs. Followed an excellent manual called the herdsman's guide to homoeopathy, bought a small number of remedies, the herdsman deployed them on the evidence of those early successes was emboldening and clearly showed the potential that homoeopathy offered us. None of us ever looked back.
The benefit was enormous on the huge range of diseases that we encountered on the farm. Besides mastitis we dealt with many other problems, including ringworm, assisting with easier calving for the cattle, fertility issues, foot problems, eye disease, a whole range of things that calves and younger animals suffer with etc etc.

Recommended to me by a friend.
Recommended by a friend. After going to the GP and being told my issue was fungal after a 2 minute physical consultation and being prescribed a strong anti fungal medicine (I threw away the prescription) I decided to see a recommended homeopath who said it sounded like eczema.
After a half hour consultation (not physical) she decided my remedy should be silica to help heal the eczema and also help with bringing back my menstrual periods since having my baby (my daughter was 10) months at the time). Worked like a charm. 30 days of the medication and I was eczema free and my periods started.

Was treated immediately after initial discussion with silica and two days later pain gone. Brilliant. Have used homeopathics regularly since on many members of family and friends with help from books and web sites usually for simple things and several members go to see homeopath in Harrogate regularly

My stepmother trained to work in Steiner schools introduced us to homoepathy 40 years ago
Took Silicea for a month and it cleared up my long standing eczema.
Son had swine flu, used gelsemium, also had nephritis with it, used aresenicum, also had head pain, high temperature used belladonna. All three got him well again from being completely immobilised in bed to back to work, in ten days.
Husband sprains shoulder badly, uses arnica and ruta grav. Back to work in two days, was expecting to be immobile for a couple of weeks, shoulder was almost paralysed with pain, unable to lift his arm at all.

Condition: I had constitutional homeopathy treatment for several years and now use it mainly for acutes.
How you found homeopathy.
How it benefited you or your family.
I learnt about it through an acquaintance who used it, then started studying it and trying it myself. I had always been very interested in medicine and health.
I had constitutional treatment over several years which transformed me both on a physical and also I would say spiritual level. I have also used it for many years for acute conditions. One of my most memorable experiences was when I had quite a bad ear infection which I had had for several weeks and which just wouldn't seem to clear up. I had actually told my homeopath over the phone but the remedy she prescribed didn't work. I finally asked my G.P. for a description of the discharge which was the one bit of information I hadn't given my homeopath. On finding out it was greenish, my homeopath immediately told me to take Mercurius over a few days. I was actually in the waiting room in hospital to see a consultant a few days after starting to take the Mercurius (by now believing that nothing would work), when suddenly it cleared and I could hear again! This particular remedy, Mercurius, has also helped me with another acute condition which I am rather susceptible to, i.e. inflammation of the nerves of my teeth. Another acute remedy I occasionally take is Silica which helps to dislodge my over-abundant ear wax and prevents me from having to have my ears syringed.

Condition: Headache
How you found homeopathy.
How it benefited you or your family.
I have always had an interest in other methods of treatment, and my partner did a brief course in homoeopathy which then drew my interested and I studied it with him. I have used it several times on myself as well as on patients.
The most amazing times I have used homeopathy has been for acute symptoms. Most recently I took cantharis following a scald to my arm, and the result was almost instant with relief from pain and the redness and blistering disappeared before my eyes. I have found the same with arnica after an injury, that you can feel the swelling reduce and bruising never appears. I have also used belladonna for severe throbbing headaches with very rapid relief and silica many years ago for a sore thorat with severely enlarged glands.

I first used homeopathy for the births of my children and then as they were growing up.
My son had a large lump on his back very near his spine when he was about 3. It grew to be about the size of an egg ~ I went to many specialists including mainstream Drs and read everything I could in an effort to try and find a cure. This was over a period of about 2 years and in the end I read about the remedy Silica and realised that the picture of that remedy fitted my son. So I tried it and it worked ~ no need for the surgery etc.

Condition: shard of glass in foot
How you found homeopathy.
How it benefited you or your family.
I became interested in "alternative" methods of healing a few years ago but only used homeopathic remedies in the last 6 months or so.
Homeopathy has helped my daughter with mood swings and myself with anxiety and skin problems (ongoing). Most recently Homeopathy has helped dispel a shatd of glass from my foot.
