Homeopathy is a complete system of evidence-based, non-toxic, holistic medicine which was developed over 200 years ago and is the second most widely used form of medicine in the world. Homeopathy works with your body, to gently yet effectively stimulate its own inherent healing resources with the aim of relieving the symptoms of disease in the short term and encouraging increased resilience in the long-term.

The main benefits of homeopathy are:

・it can be used at all ages and life stages including pregnancy and breastfeeding
・has no side effects
・eco-friendly & low carbon footprint

Homeopathy for morning sickness

Our professional homeopath, Carolyn Howgego is often consulted for the common symptoms of pregnancy such as indigestion, constipation, swollen ankles and of course, morning sickness – so there is no need to suffer in silence.  Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, very gentle, have no unwelcome side-effects and are safe to use at all life stages so are appropriate to use in pregnancy when it’s not possible to take conventional drugs.  Homeopathy can also help with emotional symptoms that may arise as both parents adjust to approaching parenthood. More serious complaints such as raised blood pressure, symphisis pubis dysfunction or a baby in breech position can also be helped by a professional homeopath. 

Carolyn has developed a special interest in women’s health, fertility issues, pregnancy and post-natal conditions, as well as babies’ and children’s health. She is trained in the Liz Lalor Fertility Method, a homeopathic treatment protocol for treating infertility and is consulted by women who are looking for help in conceiving naturally.

Pregnant women also consult Carolyn, who are suffering with common complaints such as morning sickness, round ligament pain, backache, itching skin, swollen ankles, indigestion, heartburn, restless legs, urinary tract complaints and haemorrhoids, as well as anxiety around childbirth and becoming a parent. Carolyn also loans out homeopathic childbirth kits to pregnant women who would like support in trying to deliver their baby without medical intervention.

Many parents consult Carolyn who would like to help their child live free from long-term medication with potentially unwelcome side-effects, with issues such as anxiety, ADHD, bedwetting, sleeping-walking, nightmares, eczema, colic, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhoea, nosebleeds and recurrent infections.

However, a homeopath sees every patient as an individual – not as a condition or disease and doesn’t treat specific disease labels. Carolyn takes time to consider your unique symptoms, considering each symptom as part of your whole picture. Homeopathy as a system of medicine is designed to treat the whole person and can therefore be considered in almost any situation in which a person’s health is depleted.

Carolyn personally became intrigued by Homeopathy when her eldest child was diagnosed with eczema and asthma before he was one years old. She wasn’t comfortable with the conventional option of long-term, chemical drugs so visited a Homeopath who quickly helped to restore her son’s health using natural homeopathic remedies with no side effects. Ever since, he has been free from any asthma or eczema symptoms and continues to live a happy, healthy life. She went on to use Homeopathy for all her three children and herself.

Seeing the healing effect first hand that homeopathy had on her family’s health inspired her to train as a Homeopath and brought about a complete change of direction in my career from a busy PR – to busy Homeopath, enthralled by homeopathy. She holds a BSc (Hons) in Homeopathy from Middlesex University and a Licentiate to Practice from the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London. She is a Registered Member of the Society of Homeopaths, the largest registering organisation of Homeopaths in Europe, is fully-insured to practice and adheres to the Society’s Code of Ethics and Practice. She also holds a current DBS Certificate.

Prior to becoming a Homeopath Carolyn was a PR at the BBC for ten years, working in various departments but most recently in BBC Sport. She is passionate about sport – and the invigorating feeling physical exercise has on her own wellbeing, so she is regularly found at Pilates, Yoga or BeatBike, or maybe out on the tennis or netball court, or just in the park for a run and some deep inhalations of fresh air. She is also a trained dancer – who now just dances for fun – but her passion for dance and sport has led her to develop a particular interest in homeopathy and sports-related injuries.

Feel free to give Carolyn a call on 07931 905818 to book an appointment, or to discuss your health, without obligation, before you decide if you would like to book an appointment.
