PRACTICING CLASSICAL HOMEOPATH AND DOCTOR OF MICROBIOLOGY

I practice classical homeopathy and provide counselling in holistic treatments and nutrition. With a passion for health and science, I initiated my academic path in the fields of food & nutrition culminating with a PhD in applied microbiology from Kings College London.

I raised two children and supported my family but my love for science never diminished. I soon embarked on a journey pursuing the optimal approach to health and well-being, which led me to becoming a fully trained homeopath. I have found this holistic approach to be most complete, bringing real and lasting health benefits as it focus on the cause of disease, rather than just the superficial removal or suppression of symptoms. As a scientist and a practitioner of the healing art of homeopathy, I have focused on a system of therapy that has been a blessing to my family, patients and me.
As a homeopath, my ultimate goal is to help you live to your fullest capacity, where the entire spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical being is restored to the natural state it was created in. From the times of Hippocrates(considered father to modern medicine) the human being was recognised as a trinity of body, mind and spirit, with the last being perhaps the most important part.”

“Man consists in what he thinks and what he loves, and there is nothing else in man (Dr James T. Kent)”.

I'm so tired I can't even

I have zero energy and am overwhelmed.
Needs
This is the #1 problem I see, whether it’s the primary reason patients come to see me or it is unearthed while discussing other health concerns. Life is demanding and more is required of us than ever before.

I HAVE HAD A COLD SINCE 1991

I'm always sick and my immune system hates me.
Needs
Your immune system needs TLC. Maybe your allergies are becoming more frequent, or you’re catching every bug that’s going around the office, or your kids seem to trail anything & everything home from school.

COULD PMS GET DESTROYED BY AN ASTEROID

I need ways to deal with evil PMS symptoms.
Needs
PMS can take on all forms, from irritability and tiredness, to breast pain and bloating. The reasons why it happens can be complex, but often boils down to your body not handling it’s changing hormone levels well.

BABIES HAPPENED AND NOW THERE'S THIS

I used to feel awesome and now I just don't.
Needs
Having babies takes a toll on our bodies and minds. Whether you’re 3 months post-partum or have 2 teenagers, it is typical to feel any number of things from being burnt-out, feeling edgy, or being overweight.

I'M A GROWN-UP AND DON'T KNOW WHAT TO EAT

I still think cereal is a legitimate dinner food.
Needs
There’s no denying we all wish toast and cereal constituted a healthy meal. But as you age a diet that is deficient in any number of nutrients will catch up with you.

I NEED TO PUSH THIS BABY OUT IMMEDIATELY

Poke me with needles until I give birth!
Needs
Receiving regular acupuncture treatments during pregnancy is a wonderful way to support a healthy pregnancy. Acupuncture can be an occasional “me-time” break, or can safely treat common pregnancy woes such as heartburn, nausea and carpal tunnel syndrome.

HOMEOPATHY VERSUS ALLOPATHY

Homeopathy does not address ‘diseases’ as such, but rather ‘sick people’ as individuals. This might seem as a too fine of a difference but has proved to be a pivotally insightful distinction between homeopathy and allopathy nevertheless.

When Hahnemann devised this new system of medicine called Homeopathy more than two centuries ago, science had not progressed to today’s levels. The majority of sciences – be it physics, chemistry, biology, or medicine – at the time, were focused on the basis of matter and the whole aim of treatment was on the physical state. Over time, new hypothesis develop and conventional medicine modify their treatments accordingly.

Though Hahnemann was correct in his findings, he could not explain the physical basis of homeopathy, as homeopathic medicines deal primarily with energy and not with matter, being dynamic in nature. However, homeopathy as a science follows laws and principles, which remain unchanged over two centuries.

At the present, nearly all the so-called allopathic “wonder-drugs” are failing. Bacteria have become more resistant, new viruses are still on the increase, diseases are occurring in spite of vaccinations, and the long-term side-effects of allopathic drugs are being realized.

Allopathic (conventional) medicine is in a devastating financial crisis, with hospitals going bankrupt and around us and millions of people lacking adequate health insurance; homeopathy can offer health care that is effective, free of side effects and extremely cost effective.

Thus, interest in homeopathy has seen an increase in recent years. There are more than one hundred thousand practitioners worldwide.

There are numerous homeopathic training institutions including medical colleges and research centers around the world, specialist pharmacies and many governments that have given homeopathy a legal status on a par with that of allopathy. It is encouraging to witness more universities opening special seats for Homeopathy. It is estimated that well over a million of patients worldwide are currently benefiting from homeopathic treatment. Moreover, there has to be a good reason for eleven U.S. Presidents, seven popes, other leading physicians and scientists who used and/or advocated for homeopathy, including Sir William Osler (the “father of modern medicine”), Emil Adolph von Behring (the “father of immunology”), August Bier, MD (the “father of spinal anesthesia”), Harold Griffith, MD (founding president of the World Federation of Societies of Anesthesiologists), Charles Frederick Menninger, MD (founder of the Menninger Clinic), and C. Everett Koop, MD (former Surgeon General of the United States) amongst others, who have been known to benefit from homeopathy.

Furthermore, there have been many clinical studies, which have clearly shown the efficacy of homeopathic treatment.
