“From the age of 13 I suffered from hay-fever and nothing the doctor did helped. My mother took me to a homeopath and my hay-fever went, and it also helped greatly with allergies and asthma. It’s the most effective treatment I have ever tried including conventional medicine.”

Seasonal Affective Disorder: Darkness Needn't Mean Depression

Shorter days, darker evenings, and winter on the horizon. For some, this conjures up images of cosy evenings at home, crisp countryside walks, or preparing for the end of year festivities. But for others, it can bring a range of other emotions and issues, from lack of energy and changes in your appetite, to disrupted sleep and feeling generally sad and low.

Seasonal affective disorder, commonly referred to as SAD, is a type of seasonal depression that some people experience at certain times of year, often around now when the clocks have gone back and the days are shorter. Many of us can feel down from time to time, but if this is affecting your day to day life, or you regularly get these feelings at the same time of year, it is quite likely that you suffer from SAD.

These feelings can often exacerbate existing conditions too, so it’s best not to ignore them. 

Homeopathy is a whole person system of healthcare, in which each patient is treated in an individualised way. This means that the homeopath you choose will spend time during your consultation getting a thorough understanding of your overall health and presenting symptoms. You will be asked about your lifestyle, sleep patterns, medical history, and a range of other questions, which will enable the homeopath to prescribe the homeopathic medicine best suited to your needs.

If you don’t feel like your normal self at the moment, whether that’s mentally or physically, then homeopathy could be a good option for you. Consultations can often be carried out online if you prefer not to go out on these colder days, or have family or work commitments which make it difficult to attend an appointment. 

Don’t just accept that feeling low at this time of year is something you need to put up with. You really don’t have to! Try a gentle, natural system of medicine which has no side effects. Try homeopathy.

Mental Health: Don't Suffer in Silence

Uncertain, vulnerable, isolated? Are these some of the words that describe how you feel at the moment? After six months of lockdowns and social distancing, we were all hoping that the Autumn might begin a return to normal life. Now, with further lockdowns, and no fixed end in sight, this could lead to feelings of anxiety and stress, or exacerbate existing feelings. The toll on our mental health should not be underestimated. But you don’t have to suffer in silence!

There are a range of complementary and natural therapies which could help, and with no side effects, homeopathy offers you the opportunity to address all the feelings affecting your mental health in an individual and whole person way. You may be concerned that some drugs only mask symptoms or have unwanted side-effects. Homeopathy addresses the underlying problems and the root cause in a gentle way.

A homeopathic consultation can be carried out in person by finding a registered homeopath on findahomeopath.org. But, if you want to stay at home during these colder days, or if it’s hard to find time for yourself, or if social distancing is an issue, many homeopaths also offer online consultations. Alternatively, check out the 4Homeopathy app if you prefer to find out more about medicines for yourself.

Our mental and physical health are intrinsically linked, and failing to address one can cause problems with the other further down the line. Homeopathy is great for prevention and maintaining health too, so you don't have to wait until symptoms start to manifest themselves. From giving you an energy boost, to helping with sleep, or strengthening your coping mechanisms, millions of people across the world turn to homeopathy on a daily basis.

Whatever your concerns, don’t be afraid to seek help, and don’t suffer in silence. Your mental health is too important to ignore.

Children's Health: Gentle and Natural Options

It’s hard to believe that the summer holidays are over, and the focus for many is now on returning to school again. This year could prove more challenging for families than ever before, as many children have not been at school since March. Some may be starting school for the first time, while others are starting a new school. 

Apart from the natural anxiety and concerns caused by these uncertain times, of both parents and children alike, following such a prolonged change to their usual routine, there is the additional concern that a return to school can also increase the incidence of the season’s normal coughs and colds. 

At times like this it could be worth considering homeopathy which can offer an ideal option for parents not wanting to use chemical interventions on their children. This gentle, natural system of medicine could provide the health reassurance you need – and it has no side effects.

If your child is nervous of medical environments, then homeopaths can offer a much less intimidating consultation experience. Or better still, many homeopaths can do online consultations, so you can discuss your health concerns in the safety and comfort of your own home, saving you travelling time too! This can be a huge factor for parents.

Alternatively, you may be parents with very young children and babies. Perhaps you need support in dealing with sleepless nights, or managing your own health as you try to juggle an increasingly busy day and night time routine. 

Homeopaths give you the time to really talk about your circumstances and health concerns – supporting you with their whole-person, individualised approach. Ensuring that you and your children are happy, healthy and supported at this key time, could prevent other health problems further down the line.

Want wellness? Homeopathy can help. 

"Whereas conventional medical treatments today tend to focus on the former goal of treating or controlling symptoms, various natural therapeutics primarily attend to the latter goal of augmenting the person’s own inherent defenses. Although the direct treatment of symptoms often has immediate effects, its benefits tend to be short-term. Because such therapeutic interventions do not usually strengthen the person’s own defenses, the individual remains prone to recurrence of their problem.

In contrast, therapeutic methods that strengthen a person’s immune and defense system has longer term benefit and can prevent recurrence, but the benefit is sometimes achieved more slowly. In addition to have effects on a person’s immune system, research described in a respected pharmacology journal have confirmed that homeopathic medicines have a significant effect on gene expression, providing solid evidence for similar physiological effects for which conventional drugs are known to operate."

Men's Health Month: It's Time To Talk

We all know that the last few months have been difficult for men and women alike. However, men tend to be less communicative than women, when it comes to sharing their health concerns with their family or friends. We should never underestimate the impact that isolation, job-worries, and not being able to get together with friends, may have on the mental health of men. Simply not being able to participate in your favourite sport, or take other forms of exercise, or even a change in diet because you’ve been stuck at home for months, can impact upon anyone’s physical or mental health.

But why is it that men seem less willing to seek help with health conditions? Perhaps there’s something in the male psyche which leads them to ignore concerns, or be embarrassed to discuss them? A survey last year1found that 80% of men would choose to endure an illness rather than seek help from a healthcare professional, and 39% have let symptoms become unbearable before visiting their GP.This delay can make things worse, or lead to long-term and chronic conditions, which could have been dealt with earlier.

If this sounds like you, take heart! Homeopathy could be just what you need! An appointment with a homeopath will enable you to discuss all of your concerns in a non-medical environment. The homeopath will take the time to get a picture of your overall physical, mental and emotional wellbeing; they will look at you as a whole person and give you time to go through all your concerns. You will not feel rushed, and you will get much longer than the 9.2 minutes the average GP appointment lasts.

Given the current circumstances, the fear of seeking medical advice could increase for many men. It’s all too easy to ignore signs and symptoms. A number of homeopaths offer online consultations, so you can get the help and advice you need from the comfort and privacy of your own home if you prefer. It’s that easy.

If you’re stressed, have chronic pain, are constantly tired and lethargic, or have other concerns about your health and wellbeing, give homeopathy a try. Don't be one of the 39% who put off seeking help until things start to get serious. Sometimes things don’t get better on their own.

Robert, 45, from Dalkeith tells us:

“I’ve suffered with anxiety and depression most of my adult life and tried therapy, anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medication. Homeopathy has helped me get back to work and given me the strength to go out with my family. It’s helped me get to a point I never thought I’d reach”.
