What is homeopathy?
Homeopaths believe that all symptoms of ill health are expressions of disharmony within the whole person and that it is the person who needs treatment not the disease.
Homeopathy is a gentle and effective system of medicine used to treat a wide range of acute and more long-
A first appointment in homeopathy at the Beacon Clinic Malvern takes about an hour. We will talk about the problem you have come with and will also cover your lifestyle, diet, sleep, likes, dislikes and how you feel on a mental and emotional level. Details of your energy levels, past medical history, the way you react to stress and what you do to relax are all helpful. All information you give will be treated in strictest confidence.

The treatment will usually be in the form of tablet or tablets. Sometimes we will give you a daily dose depending on your energy levels and the nature of the main complaint.
Occasionally ‘homoeopathic aggravation' occurs with a brief return of some old symptoms. If this happens it is likely to be a brief return of some old symptoms and should be thought of as 'spring cleaning'.

Homeopathy is compatible with most prescribed drugs and treatments. If the symptoms improve to such an extent that the patient is interested in reducing their prescribed medication we always advise the patient to go back to their GP to discuss the matter.

This varies for each individual depending on how long they have had the complaint and their overall state of health. Acute complaints tend to improve rapidly whilst slowly developing or deep seated complaints can take longer. Babies and children progress generally faster as their energy is better.
With chronic complaints we tend to agree a contract of appointments, usually four, with the patient. Homeopathy is not a quick fix and chronic symptoms usually need several months of treatment before satisfactory long term improvement is achieved. The body heals itself as fast as it is able, patience and the recognition of working with the natural healing process are also required.
