What I observe time and again, in practice, is that bowel & skin conditions often go hand in hand. I see many cases of chronic eczema alongside allergies in babies, children and adults. There can be an intolerance or sensitivity to food and/or environmental allergens.
Modern medicine states that eczema is a lifelong affliction, with no cure. Indeed this is true within the constraints of modern medicine.
Eczema is merely a symptom of a deeper cause.
Homeopathy recognises this and works to address the problem at its root.
Eczema is systemic, it comes from within, applications of steroid creams will not solve the problem. They may give relief temporarily, but once they are stopped, the eczema usually returns.
Steroids are not safe to use in the long term, and sadly I have seen many adults with damaged skin because of this.
I offer a gentle, natural and safe, non addictive alternative to all types of skin and bowel issues, in children and adults alike. I know that eczema doesn’t have to be a life long affliction.
I have been interested in homeopathy for many years, my first experience of homeopathy was when my son was 7 and developed pneumonia. 4 courses of antibiotics didn’t help him and I finally took him to a homeopath. Within a week his cough cleared and from that moment I knew it was what I wanted to do.
Now I am a fully qualified and insured homeopath, I also lecture on skin conditions at the South Downs School of Homeopathy and am on their faculty of staff. I am as passionate about teaching homeopathy as I am practising.
I have a special interest in Topical Steroid Withdrawal and Red Skin Syndrome. These conditions are created from prolonged use of topical steroids and sufferers endure a myriad of painful and debilitating skin symptoms. Modern medicine does not recognise TSW / RSS but I have seen hundreds of clients over the years going through this and I understand how unpredictable and reactive the skin can be.
