Patient Testimonials

Treatment Comments from Patients:

The following statements from patients do not represent evidence that homeopathy works, but are the personal opinion of people I have treated.  I am not allowed by the Advertising Standards Authority to imply that homeopathic treatment can help any specific medical conditions. I would like to make it clear that these statements are not meant to imply that a particular homeopathic remedy can cure a specific medical condition.  This is not how I believe that homeopathy works.  You may however note from these unedited comments that people who have been diagnosed with a wide range of medical conditions have reported that they have experienced an apparent benefit from homeopathy. This may of course be coincidence, but I have been privileged to observe a very high percentage of such coincidences over 27 years of practice.

“I was first introduced to Phil / homeopathy when my daughter developed eczema at the age of 2. Steroid creams proved unsuccessful in treating the problem, and after using homeopathy my daughter is almost eczema free. I saw results very quickly. I, since then, have used homeopathy to treat other members of the family with ailments such as ear infections, UTI’s, and Vertigo with very positive results. I would highly recommend Phil”.

Px 807 Childhood Warts. Prior to seeing me, for 3 years had 10 large warts on fingers & thumbs. After 5 months 2 remained, and were diminishing. 9 months after last consultation none remain. Treatment consisted of 4 consultations over 5 months - her mum says:

“She is so so pleased with the results. It’s hard to believe when you look at how confident she has become that they were all over her hands for so long. We are both truly grateful and always sing the praises of homeopathy. Glad to hear you are happy in your new home and office. We will be in touch if we ever need you again”

Patient 807 Childhood Warts

Having spent twelve months taking antibiotics for acne treatment under the care of a dermatologist my sixteen year old son’s acne was no better and worse still he had inflammation of the gut, and so was also under the care of a gastroenterologist. He had a loss of confidence, was often extremely frustrated and was unhappy and uncommunicative. We sought help from Philip for the physical problems but Philip identified the emotional side within the first ten minutes of the initial consultation. After the first remedy prescribed we saw a dramatic emotional improvement and after two further treatments we now have a very happy, emotionally balanced son again - what a relief. And guess what? Both the gut and the acne have improved too! Thank you so much Philip, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you

Patient 854 Acne/ Depression/ Gut

Constant itching at base of skull: Due to pace of life I tend to go for quick fixes and keep myself going with alternative means. Homeopathy seems to be a long term treatment and I feel that one needs to be a able to give it time and space to work. 50% improvement after first month.

Patient 558
Allergies & HayFever

Here's a quick update about my son. The drops that you sent have done the trick - he seems to have transformed into a new boy. All those little issues that have hampered him for so long seem to have disappeared and he is considerably more cooperative, willing to work, he's calmer, more sensible, more considerate and he could concentrate more easily. Fingers crossed for the exam results! He's been in Holland for the last 10 days or so, he's found a job - but needs a work permit (!) before he can start. He seems to be sorting that out as well with very little or no help. This should really help with his self confidence. All in all, I would like to think that from now on things will be going more smoothly for him. Thank you so much for your help. I have no idea why we didn't come and see you years ago!

Allergies & HayFever

I was especially pleased with the fact that I was able to refuse anti-depressants last autumn when suffering from anxiety and depression, and felt hugely better as a result of a homeopathic remedy. Although the consultations can be challenging, they do reveal possibly unpalatable truths about one's lifestyle and can prompt change, or a new way of looking at problems. Also during the treatment for anxiety as above, it was interesting that the remedy which I initially took in a high concentration provoked palpitations, which had been the nastiest symptom of the anxiety, Although it was a bit alarming I adjusted the concentration with the homeopath's guidance, and the drops were then very effective. I thought the episode did give lie to the argument that remedies are so dilute no-one would ever feel the effects!

Downs Syndrome

General digestive upset with tremendous tiredness, unable to do very much at all without needing to lie down: Homeopathy has proved successful for me in the past. I especially like feeling I am treated as an individual. GP's often prescribe drugs which quite often create other problems, so I personally prefer to try a more gentle remedy first.

Patient 507
Hot Flushes (menopause)

Within a week I began to notice a slight improvement in the night sweats and by 2 weeks they and the day time flushes had completely disappeared. For the first time in several months I slept properly and so did my husband as we no longer had to have all the windows open and a fan running! Giving up coffee at the same time was hard but I am sure helped, I feel a new woman!

Patient 212
Hot Flushes (menopause)

2 weeks after 1st remedy had MMR vaccine, followed by 2 week fever and complete loss of appetite. Here is the email I received from the mother 7 hours after the 2nd remedy, 15 days after MMR vaccine.
"Just thought I’d let you know about the miracle baby ... after seeing you she went to sleep. Normally has a 3-4 hour nap but woke up after an hour and a half, which she never does. She ate one whole jar and that was enough for her and now has just eaten a normal size dinner ... what a difference after 2 weeks of eating nothing!! Thanks! Cheque is in the post and should arrive tomorrow.

Adverse Vaccination Reaction (MMR)

I have used homeopathy myself and on my children, my horses and dog for over 15 years, with the help of Geoff Johnson in Somerset when it needed a more experienced view, and I can only say that our visits to doctors and vets between us over that time have been very infrequent. My children were too young to know what type of treatment they received to begin with and my animals clearly can't understand, but there is no question that homeopathy has resolved a whole cross section of health issues, some of which conventional medicine failed to address. It saddens me greatly that today many doctors are not open minded enough to see that complementary medicine has a part to play and seek to damn it entirely. I believe time and scientific advance will prove them wrong.
Good Luck
