How I came to Homoeopathy
After a good recommendation, I went to see a homeopath in London. Because homeopathy is holistic medicine, the consultation covered all of my complaints – mental, physical and emotional. I don't think I realized how out of balance and stressed I had become. I remember the homeopath, Rachel, telling me that the skin is the most superficial organ where disease can manifest and that before it went, the deeper aspects would need to resolve first.
My healing journey had to go via the deeper layers and it took over a year for my eczema to completely go. There were times of frustration with the process, because I went to have my eczema treated and after several months, it was still there! Rachel went back over my case and reminded me of the other complaints - chronic fatigue, chronic thrush and cystitis, amongst others. They had all resolved, gently and quietly – so much so, that I had forgotten I even had them.
From the very first homeopathic medicine my sense of wellbeing and vitality significantly improved, and this is what kept me going. I just felt better.
By the time my eczema finally cleared, my health was in a very different place and I was on a mission to find out more about this science and art of homeopathy, which led me to becoming a homeopath.
