I am a homeopath and have done a lot of study into it
My son had severe eczema as a baby where he used to scratch it on his legs with his toenails until it bled. He scratched his face until it was an oozing wasteland of sores. It took a few tries to get the right remedy but once we did, it disappeared in about a week and I could tell it was the right remedy because it started working to take away the itch within a couple of hours.

When I was a teenager my mother started using homeopathic medicine and got rid of her migraines. And she used it to get rid of my headaches as well.
I had a horrible allergic reaction to a Hops vine growing outside my house and I looked up a remedy for it and within 20 minutes the torturous itching and hives were gone.

Condition: Because, after botched treatment at great expense, I knew there had to be a better way.

On three subsequent nights over a holiday season in NYC, a huge teaching hospital's emergency room did so much wrong that I nearly died...of a post-flu bacterial infection. After that, I knew there had to be a better way, and I sought it. I found homeopathy.
I lived in the US until five years ago; I was a freelance writer and horsemanship instructor and had no insurance. While I did run up some hospital x-ray bills after falls, my basic healthcare costs were about $100 a year, total. AND I was vibrantly healthy despite often having too little money and way too much stress. BTW, I was flung off horses in my forties and fifties, and no real damage was ever done. I think it's because I didn't pollute my body with antibiotics and such, but used homeopathy exclusively. Either that, or I'm differently made than all other riders! And I don't think so.

Condition: Headache

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.

Following a RTA and sustaining damage to my knee I had severe pain, worse every winter. All conventional medicine could offer was analgesics. For several years I had acupuncture throughout the winter. This helped until the following autumn when the pain worsened. A colleague had tried homeopathy for a similar problem and although I didn't really think it would help I decided to give it a go as the acupuncture never really solved the problem and I didn't much fancy having acupuncture every year for the rest of my life.
After the first remedy I was amazed at the improvement and since then I have been pain free, That was nearly 30yrs ago. What I also noticed, and was observed by others, was that I became much more relaxed at work, no longer irritated and impatient with colleagues who I perceived as inefficient. I continued to be a conscientious worker but much easier to get on with!

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: child autism

my child was diagnosed autistic at four years old. I knew a lot of my friends had been treated or had their children treated with homeopathy successfully, so I decided to give it a go, although I had never tried it for myself and knew really nothing about it. I found a homeopathic doctor specialized in cases of child autism through internet and started treatment. My son at this point had no speech, had behavioural problems, poor eye contact and was very hyperactive.
A year on since the beginning of his treatment, my son can speak, his behaviour has improved, he can make friends, play and interact positively with his peers, he is starting school soon and for the first time I think he has a chance of learning like everybody else. In the meantime I was so blown away with what homeopathy can do that I have started to study it for myself and I hope one day to be able to help others with similar problems.

I used it before to help clear a recurring kidney infection.
Cleared my kidney infection within 6 weeks - hasn't returned. Psoriasis has cleared by 85-90% and remainder looking more faded. I'm also feeling less tired and depressed.

I have used homeopathy for many years, having found that orthodox medicine has too many unwanted side-effects.
Very recently, it helped to reduce pain and bleeding after a hysterectomy and extensive repairs to my pelvic floor. I did not need even one orthodox painkiller!

Condition: Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

In 2006, at the age of 32 and a psychiatric nurse, suddenly I became ill. I was bed bound, in incredible pain and life quickly became undignified for me. After repeated DNA's at my local GP I finally managed to get to see a great GP. She took down all my symptoms and knew that I did not like taking western pharmaceuticals if I could help it. I was sent to a specialist and although it took nearly two years I was finally diagnosed - I have Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. My GP then referred me to the Glasgow Homoeopathic Hospital. My first Consultant was fantastic as he also had M.E.
With my first remedy I had a little more energy, my pain began to get manageable, the 'spiders crawling up my body' began to dissipate, my brain fog would clear a little more and the list goes on. Having been on homoeopathy for 6 years now and bit by bit it is helping. For me and my disease there is no quick fix. Homoeopathy for me is one of, if not the only, truly holisitic forms of wellness. My Consultants allow me to speak my mind, explain how I feel physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
I would recommend homoeopathy to anyone.
