Jane’s passion for Homeopathy started as a result of her own son being effectively treated for a severe skin complaint as a young baby, when conventional medicine had not been successful. Homeopathy is a medicine that can help across a wide variety of illnesses. …Read more

My 7 year old son began treatment with Jane to help with a nervous eye tic as well as occasional bouts of anger. From the first consultation, Jane made us feel very relaxed and my son felt very comfortable and happy to answer Jane’s questions. We noticed significant improvement in both the frequency and severity of the eye tic after the first remedy.                                                                                                                                                        

We continued to see Jane every three weeks and different remedies were prescribed. After each consultation, both my husband and myself noticed that our son was more relaxed and happy. He liked his chats with Jane and he thrived on the positive attention she gave.                                                                                                                              

Our treatment spanned over about 6 months and we are now at the stage where we hardly notice the eye tic anymore and the bouts of anger have gone. I truly believe that the homoeopathic remedies prescribed by Jane for our son had a significant effect on treating his eye tic and improving his emotional wellbeing. I recommend Jane to anyone who is seeking improvement for any heath condition, in particular those with an emotional involvement

What is Homeopathy?

homeopathyHomeopathy is a holistic system of medicine, based on an understanding of the interconnection between mind and body. By taking a full case history, homeopaths aim to treat the whole person, not just their disease. Instead of treating symptoms with strong drugs, homeopathy uses gentle medicine which aims to stimulate and strengthen the immune system, thereby helping the body’s natural tendency to heal itself. Homeopathic medicine is prescribed in very low dilution after a special matching process, which takes into account individual symptoms and characteristics.

How does it work?

Homeopathy is based on the idea that what can cause can also cure. A dose of a substance causes certain symptoms when given to a healthy person. When the same substance, prepared in a minute dose, is given to someone suffering similar symptoms it becomes curative.  Samuel Hahnemann founded Homeopathic medicine in Germany at the end of the 18th century & based his medical practice on these two key principles :

  1. “Like cures like”— (Similia Similibus Currentur) the principle that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people; and
  2. “Law of minimum dose”—the principle that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness.

For example:Bardon_Counselling_Homeopth_remedies

  • We all know cutting raw onions can make our eyes water. When prepared as a Homeopathic remedy it can be used to treat hay fever.
  • Too much coffee has been the cause of many sleepless nights. In minute doses it can treat insomnia.
  • Eating the herb Arnica Montana can cause internal bleeding. In minute doses it is used to treat bruises and the effects of injuries.

This natural law of “Like curing Like” is a natural law observed as far back as 400 B.C. by Hippocrates. The development of this law into a system of therapeutics was achieved 200 ago years by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann who is considered the father of homeopathy. Homeopathy today is used by over 200 million people worldwide to treat both acute and chronic conditions addressing the individual expression of the “dis-ease” presenting as symptoms physically, emotionally & mentally.

 What Happens during a Homeopathic Consultation?

 

In Homeopathy we treat the individual not just the “dis-ease”. We will never know the whole story of you, the individual but we will see sufficient through the consultation process to understand the “essence” of the individual. Combining physical, emotional & mental symptoms a skilled practitioner will be able to identify & match homeopathic remedy or remedies to support the individual’s healing process back to wellness & wholeness. The initial consultation may take up to an hour & a half, to explore the health history, current symptoms & overall temperament of the patient. As well as the precise details of the presenting symptom/s together with the family history, reactions to food, weather and temperature, and the individual’s  emotional and mental state. Follow up consultations are generally between 30 -40 mins. A pre-consultation questionnaire is required to be completed prior to any appointment, these may be e-mailed or posted to you alternatively they may be downloaded from Jane@janelindsay.com.au Homeopathic remedies are made from minerals, salts, plants and some animal products. Each one has a known pattern of action. The homoeopath seeks a similarity between the pattern of a medicine and your individual picture to select your remedy.  Remedies are taken as simple globules which are placed under the tongue until they have dissolved, or as liquid drops. Unlike many conventional medicines, homeopathic remedies are non-toxic and not addictive & therefore especially beneficial for babies & children. Homeopathy can be safely used alongside other forms of medical treatment.
