Homeopathy can open up a whole new magical world.
Homeopathy has been a way of life for me for 30 years. After endless visits to hospitals in my teens and early twenties with stomach aches I looked like a little stick insect weighing not much more than 6 stone!
I remember gingerly asking a bowel specialist if what I was eating could be causing my stomach aches. He looked at me with a scowl for daring to question him and told me to not be so ridiculous. “Of course food doesn’t affect your stomach, don’t be so foolish!” he was one of the country’s top stomach and bowel specialists at the time!
Doctors have come on a little since then, it sounds like the dark ages not the 1980’s. Whilst in hospital for the umpteenth time and deciding that the hospital food of cauliflower cheese and pasta was making me worse, I discharged myself and decided that ‘there must be another way.’
As I was making my way out of the hospital almost on my hands and knees with pain, a patient opposite in the ward gave me a card for a homeopath. I didn’t even know what it meant but I went along, desperate for help.
The homeopath took one look at me and said “this is classic intolerance to dairy and wheat stop eating them now” I did and my stomach stopped aching after a few days. Along with homeopathy he helped me back to health and I am eternally grateful for his guidance and love, after being written off by the doctors as it “all being in my head.”
This was the start of my journey into complimentary health and I am passionate about sharing helpful information with anyone who is ready to listen. Usually it takes an illness or a shock or bereavement before we are ready to start to question the status quo, but once we do, as all of you therapists know, a whole magical world opens up before our eyes.
