Homeopathy and Bowen Therapy for the treatment of chronic disease and or injury are in my opinion tools that should be available to everyone. There are seldom cases where these won’t help.
Both these therapies are often misunderstood because they are poorly explained. After practicing for 20 years I have learned so much and I want to share that experience I have to help people manage their health concerns and enjoy life without the stresses of symptoms that aren’t managed by their available or current treatment options. I hope to open your eyes to a better understanding of these two remarkable systems of medicine.
Has been used for over two hundred and fifty years and has continued to survive as a medicine despite the natural scepticism it faces. It is hard for us to understand how medicines that are diluted can treat diseases when normally drugs are used in ever increasing strengths to treat the same symptoms. Homeopathic medicine is not a drug like Tylenol or Paxil, it is a stimulus to our own natural health and vitality. A drug forces its will on our body and a well chosen homeopathic medicine stimulates our body’s own ability to fight and manage disease and pathogens, to control pain and inflammation, to heal and repair as well as recover quickly. It simply turns on our body’s ability to react more strongly and changes the response from proactive and inflammatory to a proactive one where immune response is awakened and recuperation and recovery occur. Homeopaths use information from your own symptoms to decide on a medicine. A homeopath can work for many hours in that process because though there may be several medicines that might influence a positive change it is very important to choose a medicine that affects you on all levels. That is one reason homeopathy is not more popular because it takes time and effort to use effectively.
is similar in many ways to homeopathy and has been a staple of my practice since I learned it in 1999. It is a form of body work that you use for the same sorts of problems that you would use any other form of body. It is unique only because it is so effective and quickly, most clients come to understand the benefit for their problems in 1 or 2 visits and this clear benefit guides both practitioner and patient on the benefits of further treatments. Like homeopathy a Bowen Therapy treatment stimulates our body’s reactive responses to injury, pain and disease. It’s like a switch that turns off the emergency responses in the body and switches on those of de-flammation and healing instead. Bowen Therapy is used ‘head to toe’ for all issues relating to pain and misalignment. What’s more it is both incredibly simple and wonderfully effective.
It treats conditions such as, back pain, scoliosis, tendonitis and arthritis. It is also used for treating a wide range of neurological syndromes like migraine, neuralgia, sciatica. It can also help functional symptoms like Asthma, GERD and IBS. The therapy is easy to receive in whatever condition you are in whether received lying on a treatment table or sitting in a chair the therapy can be given painlessl.
Below is a recent trailer from an interesting documentary that is an investigation all about homeopathy:
