Homeopathy and The Digestive System
Problems can arise when our food processing system becomes disrupted in various ways. For example in irritable bowel where there may be pain, abdominal swelling and flatulence with mucous in the stool and alternating constipation and diarrhoea. Or in diverticulitis where the colon wall is weakened and small pouches appear and associated inflammation can cause pain and constipation/diarrhoea.
As a homeopath and holistic practitioner, I view symptoms that arise in the digestive system, such as
acid reflux; gas; colitis; IBS; diarrhoea; constipation; candida; irritable bowel; inflammatory symptoms
to name but a few, as the body’s attempt to throw off an inner disturbance which the immune system has not been able to overcome and where our balance of health has been lost. I work with you to find out when and how your symptoms began and the exact nature of them, in order for homeopathic treatment to stimulate your system to work through the underlying causes to resolve your symptoms, whether they are acute or more chronic.
For any issues with your digestive system, the homeopathic prescriptions you are given take into account both the specific symptoms you are suffering as well as your general constitutional type, including any characteristics such as likes and dislikes, temperature control, and other individual factors that reflect you as an individual, in order to stimulate your system to throw off the disturbance.
The digestive system is a complex food processing system that extracts nutrients and eliminates wastes. The food we eat is broken down in the gastrointestinal tract and specific components such as fats, carbohydrates and proteins are extracted with help from secretions made by the liver and the pancreas. The waste matter is stored in the large intestine before exiting our body via the rectum and anus. A well functioning digestive system and well nourished body is significant in all healing and we make sure this is in place as part of your healing programme.
The Digestive System
Consultations last at least an hour, during which we go through your symptoms, how they started and how they affect you, as well as looking at your characteristics as an individual in order to get the best homeopathic prescription for you. You can book an initial consultation here:
