What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a gentle and holistic form of medicinal treatment. It stimulates the body's natural resistance against dis-ease or ill-heath. Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843) Founder of Homeopathy - a German physician, chemist and linguist - espoused the law of cure 'Like Cures Like' and discovered the process of potentization - a method by which substances are diluted to lesson toxic properties and magnify their effectiveness.

Why Try Homeopathy?

Margaret is passionate about homeopathy because it is safe, effective and easy to use. Homeopathic medicine is invaluable in the treatment of acute, chronic and hereditary diseases.

Herbal Medicine


Nourish and Rebalance
Herbs have been used as healing agents since the beginning of time. Plants are used for medicinal purposes. Herbal Medicine strengthens, invigorates, cleanses and replenishes the physical structure and function of the body. Margaret creates personalised remedies from reputable suppliers for specific ailments presented by each client. 

Margaret studied Herbal Medicine with Dorothy Hall, a well renowned author, Natural Therapist and Herbalist 'extraordinaire'. She became an expert on the growing and use of herbs through the teaching of her grandfather, who was a government botanist. Her invaluable research, familiarity with plants and clinical knowledge reflects in her 'person pictures' of each herb - an exceptional teacher and mentor. 



What Is Iridology?
Iridology is the study of the iris, or coloured part of the eye.The iris reveals changing conditions of every part of the body. It is a 'personality and health analysis' through the iris. It assesses what is happening in the body and reveals inherited strengths and weaknesses as well as conditions before symptoms appear. Any problems or imbalances are indicated by the various colours, texture or patterns represented in the iris - these correspond to each part or organ.

Dr Ignatz von Peczely of Hungary discovered 'nature's records in the iris' in 1861 and he is generally considered the father of Iridology. Iridology is a diagnostic tool used to detect underlying signs of developing disease.



Why Have a Kinesiology Treatment With Margaret?Margaret uses Kinesiology - a system of 'muscle testing' to locate energy imbalances in the body. It is a modality that can reach blockages stored in the cellular tissue. To help determine exactly what is occurring in the body, muscles are used as biofeedback mechanisms.

Kinesiology 'Muscle Testing' 
Kinesiology is the science of energy balancing and is grounded in the study of anatomy and physiology. It identifies the underlying factor of illness - nutrition, emotional, mental and energetic imbalances - as well as the cause of sensitivity reactions, e.g. food or environmental allergies.


flower essences

Bach Flower Essences
A simple and natural method of healing the 'personality' by the means of potentized wild flowers. Bach Flower remedies help improve health and emotional well-being. These gentle and safe flower essences have a stabilising effect on negative emotions. The most recognised Bach Flower Remedy is Rescue Remedy - this has a calming effect on all sorts of stressful situations. The first 38 Flower Remedies were formulated by a British physician, Dr Edward Bach, in the 1930's, although new remedies from other plant species are now available e.g. Australian Bush Flower Essences.

How do flower essences work?
Flower Essences are energetic imprints of the life force of plants. Dr Bach advocated treating the person and not the symptoms.

Disease can be prevented before its physical symptoms are manifested. In the recognition of the need for help and the thorough acquaintance of the right remedy, lies the means of prevention and unnecessary suffering.  Perseverance is essential for the best results - a condition which has been gradual in growing should be gradual in its removal, in the pattern of the Natural Law.
