We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them
- Albert Einstein, Theoretical Physicist.
Homeopathy is based on the philosophy that the body, mind and emotions are not really separate, but fully integrated. For example, prolonged emotional stress can cause physical problems and vice versa, physical problems can result in anxiety or depression.
It has been recognised that there is a capacity in the body for self-healing. In acute process (for example: colds, stomach upsets, etc.) the body naturally resists infection and in time gets better through mobilising its own build-in defences.
There are, of course, many situations where this doesn't happen, where the body's vitality is not sufficient to manage this alone. Homeopathic remedies can assist in this process by stimulating the body's defence mechanism.
In other words, Homeopathy focuses on building health and strengthening the immune system with individualised, carefully selected remedies. This explains, for example, why several people with the same diagnosis will receive a different homeopathic remedies.
Homeopathic treatment is tailored for each individual, which means that the prescription is made not just on the basis of a single symptom, but on the much larger picture, which includes the person constitution, past medical and life history, emotional state, life style and much more. Homeopathy does not treat a disease as such, rather it treats the whole person.
Homeopathy works on the principle of the “Law of Similars” This principle has been part of medical practice since the time of the Greeks. Although Homeopathy has been developed and refined over 200 years, but it was first formulated by Samuel Hahneman, a German physician in the eighteenth century.
Hahneman postulated the law, which states: “That, which makes sick, shall heal”. In other words, a substance, which causes particular symptoms in a healthy person, will cure those same symptoms in an ill person.
An example of this can be illustrated by the physical symptoms caused by peeling an onion. The symptoms include an acrid runny nose, stinging streaming eyes and a particular soreness in the throat.
“Allium cepa” is the name of homeopathic remedy, that is made from onion. It is one of the remedies used for the treatment of hay fever when there are the presenting symptoms.More Info
Homeopathic remedies are obtained from mineral, vegetable and animal substances. Each remedy is subjected to a specialised refining process. This process involves dilution and shaking. A substance can be diluted and succussed many times. This process is called potentisation.
Due to the dilution the remedy itself might contain only molecules of original substance or due to the high dilution just “information” about it.
Below are just a few examples from the many thousands of plants, flowers, minerals I work with.
Individuality: it can address not just the symptoms, but the predisposition of an individual to have those symptoms.

The healthy child is full of vitality, with sparkling eyes and glowing skin, curious and inquisitive about the world around them.
However, there are many, who have permanent runny noses, persistent coughs, allergies and skin conditions. As a result have poor energy and vitality.
Other children exhibit behavioural problems and learning difficulties. Many of these children are unhappy, anxious and depressed. Other can be hyperactive and restless, causing distress to there families.
Homeopathy focuses on building health by strengthening the immune system and restoring imbalance with individualised, carefully selected remedies.
I have been going to Elena with my son for the last six years. My son was suffering with frequent
colds and bouts of tonsillitis. A truly holistic approach is taken and through knowing the whole
person tailored remedies are given after face to face or online consultation. With homeopathic
remedies and good nutritional advice Elena has kept us both extremely healthy in both body and mind.
We are delighted!

Adolescence is a time of need for support, especially for psychological reassurance. Homeopathy is a harmonious with each adolescent stage of formation.
Parents can help teenagers by using a natural approach for physical and psychological problems, such as bullying, separation, problems within a one parent or step family, bereavement.
Any instability at home can create in a teenager the feelings of anxiety, guilt, shame or anger. Homeopathy is of a great value, because it can helps to put much of this emotional turmoil into balance.
I started my treatment with Elena during my GCSE year as I began to suffer from high levels of stress
and anxiety. The homeopathic treatment that Elena specifically tailored to my needs enabled me to
overcome challenges such as public speaking and exams anxieties. I have now continued the
homeopathic treatment as I progress into University.

Women are turning to Homeopathy to address the root of the problem rather than just it's symptoms. Pressure at work place and pressure at home can easily lead to a hormonal imbalance, which can cause period problems, premenstrual syndrome, thrush or cystitis.
In menopause the metabolism slows down. There is a tendency to put on weight, the skin begins to lose its elasticity and it is difficult sometimes to keep up with external changes. Homeopathic remedies can help women at this vulnerable point in life to be in peace with themselves.
At all milestones in the female development: childhood, adolescence, giving birth and menopause homeopathic remedies can help women to bring balance back to their lives, to remind that we are all have a unique identity and purpose to our life.
Before I started my Homeopathic treatment I suffered with an underactive thyroid. This prevented me
from working and I was unable to partake in any sport activities. After three months of treatment I
was able to return to work and I am now is able to enjoy swimming and other sport activities with my
son. Homeopathy has literally changed my life.

Men live stressful lives, but are far less careful about looking after their health than women. Men tend to engage on risky activities. So, they more likely to have accidents.
Homeopathic remedies address not only physical, but also emotional aspect of injuries or trauma. Homeopathy can make any surgical intervention and recovery much less traumatic.
Many men find it difficult to express their discomfort. So, not surprisingly a crisis may develop in form of a physical illness, such as gastric ulcer or an emotional breakdown, or midlife crisis. Yong men can also suffer from anxieties connected to their image. There is a rising rate of male anorexia.
Homeopathy take into consideration the fact, that all people are different constitutionally. There are remedies to address every person and aetiology of the problem individually.
I have been visiting Medical Doctors and Dermatologist for over a year trying to get help for
Seborrheic Dermatitis and Rosacea that I experienced with situation actually worsening. After four
months having a Homeopathic treatment with Elena I have my life back again. I am a firm believer in
