What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on natural laws. It is the second most widely used medicine in the world and is recognized by the World Health Organisation. Homeopathy can treat people suffering from a wide range of conditions. The medicines are made in a unique way, which results in them being very dilute, yet still able to have a medicinal effect. Treatment is holistic and prescriptions are tailored to each individual’s specific symptoms and characteristics. Homeopathy can be used in conjunction with other medicines and therapies. It can be used at any age and stage of the lifespan, including during pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Treatment tailored to the individual

People often ask if homeopathy can treat a specific health complaint or condition. The truth is, homeopathy treats the whole person, who is expressing an alteration in their health in this particular way, with these particular symptoms. Whilst a diagnosis can be helpful, it is not essential since it is your unique symptoms that are the most helpful. From this point of view, homeopathy can really treat any ‘collection’ of symptoms a person is suffering with – mental, physical and emotional.

Homeopathy is gentle

Homeopathic treatment is very gentle. So gentle in fact, that people often come back into clinic saying that “nothing has changed”. On close examination of their symptoms they are often surprised to note that some things have quietly disappeared; headaches have stopped; energy has improved; quality of sleep has returned, and they hadn’t even noticed!

“Helping you to reach a state of health where you are free from limitations and able to go out and achieve your life purpose.”
- Michelle Hookham

For this reason, follow-ups in the early stages of treatment are extremely important and people who do, experience the most profound benefit from homeopathy. Treatment can then evolve as we connect with the underlying mind-body cause of what is wrong, work through layers of dis-ease and restore dynamic health with homeopathy.

Response to treatment

Response to homeopathic medicines is individual. Sometimes people experience a sense of wellness and improved vitality straight away. Sometimes it’s a very gentle process as mentioned above. Some people experience a mild aggravation of symptoms before they start to improve. People may also get a return of symptoms in a very mild dose from a complaint experienced earlier in life or have increased discharges as the body detoxes and begins to heal.
What we do know from clinical work is that the first sign of improvement will be the deeper energetic aspects such as quality of sleep, increased energy, feeling well. This usually occurs before physical symptoms start to recede.


All medicines are included in the cost of consultations.

Homeopathic medicines are dispensed in small pillules or drops. They are very dilute and have no toxic side effects. In most cases only one medicine is given at a time, matching the unique expression of symptoms. Dosage will vary from once only to daily, weekly or as needed. Instructions are provided with the medicines.

From The Client

“Having been brought up in Germany, Homœopathy always used to be part of my life. When moving to Australia it took some research to find Michelle who has done so much for me and my family in the last few years. She helped us though many acute infections like colds, flues, ear infections and toothaches. When my daughter developed eczema she was there and with her help the eczema is pretty much gone – when it reappears we take one dose of her remedy and usually within a few days my daughter is symptom free again. Michelle, thank you for a healthier life for my whole family and myself.”

“Four days after I saw Michelle, I felt like I was reborn. I have never ever experienced anything like it. Even on the first night after I took the remedy, I slept through like a baby. No waking up, no bad thoughts, no fear and no feeling of suffocation. It has been almost a year since I took my remedy and none of the symptoms have returned. Michelle, thank you for giving me my life back.”
