With oneself, with others, with the role of others; causes of anger; whether anger kept in or explosive; triggers causing the anger might include: a location, a person, an authoritive figure, a place with sad or difficult memories, or other;
Anger Management; Irritability in all its forms and guises
Arthritis: The two main forms are:
Rheumatoid or inflammatory arthritis and Osteoarthritis;
Osteoarthritis or degenerative joint disease is more common and seems to affect more women than men. It is the one where the cartilage at the end of the bones in your joints deteriorates over time, becomes rough and eventually you may have bone rubbing on bone and the joint becomes very painful.
We generally treat this by looking at the personal and family history and the individual nature of the symptoms, including aggravating causes etc. Then we seek out a remedy that is unique to that person at that time.

Everyday things like minor burns or bruises can be dealt with on the spot with homeopathy and you can deal with some of these yourself with a little bit of information and without the need to go to a homeopath. Often we can help when problems have arisen with vaccination and this can be discussed at consultation. Each person is totally different and we do not know how an individual will respond or how deeply they have been affected.
At the Irish Homeopathy Centre we strive to give the best possible care in the gentlest manner.
Chronic diseases that linger for years and those life changing Acute illnesses that hit you one day seemingly out of the blue and sometimes require urgent medical attention; Yes, homeopathy can help you even in these situations either at the beginning or to help you cope as your treatment progresses.

This can be a death and not need a homeopathic remedy (or a conventional sleeping pill) as it is a normal process in life. It can be where the grieving person is unable to readjust their life a considerable time after a death and as homeopaths we know that people are different in their needs and grief time. It can be a loss of any kind which can even apply to a child who has moved from an old home to a new home with the loss of a friend or animal or a toy.
It can be a hurt which was inflicted upon a person which they believe was wrong and they cannot let it go even many years later. They might not even have been involved. The Irish Homeopathy Centre can help.
This can be recent or it can go back many years and can have any number of causes most of which can be helped once we know the cause and often without knowing the cause.
Headache / Migraine:
There are many remedies dealing with the types of headache and both acute and constitutional remedies can and will definitely help.

There are many other different symptoms which can present to make the headache unique to you and require another remedy.
Hayfever / Allergies:
These can be treated constitutionally i.e. a remedy that resonates with the 'whole of you' and deals with the allergy by giving an overall boost to the immune system and helping its defenses. They can also be treated acutely i.e. a homeopathic remedy taken when needed to match specific symptoms, and that will alleviate or reduce the symptoms significantly. This can be quite difficult as symptoms may be changing and the symptoms may recur unless the acute remedy matches the constitutional remedy in which case the effect will be a dramatic improvement. This does happen. This dramatic improvement can also occur when the constitutional remedy is well chosen and its characteristics match those of the person very closely.
After injuries / open wounds /operations/ hospital treatment [hospital acquired] that will not heal or will not succumb to normal medical treatment can very often be helped with homeopathic remedies and in this practice we have a herbal remedy available to our patients which when combined with homeopathic remedies can be really helpful.

The process of talking and telling the 'story' in the homeopathic consultation can be the first step towards freedom in whatever way.

Maybe with homeopathic assistance you may choose to make some changes in your routine which may bring you into contact with others without losing your independence.
These can be helped significantly with acute remedies and constitutional remedies very often reduce the occurrence before removing the problem completely. If there is a 'trigger event' this will be looked at in the choice of constitutional remedy.

Self image and our feelings
We should remember that we are entitled to our feelings. Sometimes we may need to consider why things or people give rise to these feelings in us so that we can find a way out of a situation which may be unhealthy or dangerous for us. As homeopaths we try to accept people as they present and we listen with the aim of finding a gentle way to help. Hahnemann, the modern man of homeopathy, in a book called 'Organon of Medicine' said, in one of his concise statements, called aphorisms, ' the highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of health .... in the shortest, most reliable and most harmless way'. We always strive to do this in The Irish Homeopathy Centre.
Skin Problems: in all its forms can be helped by homeopathy even for dry skin or to help reduce physical scars/
Sports injuries with natural homeopathic remedies
Tennis elbow, golfers elbow, Sprains, Cartilage, Ligaments, Bones, Frequent dislocations, Repetitive Strain injury, old injuries, Mobility problems, Hip / Knee problems whether from an injury or a fall; Concentration problems; Concussion;
Fractures or broken bones: remember you will still need to attend hospital or centre for an X-ray or to re-align the bone but the process of healing can be speeded up by the use of these Natural and Homeopathic remedies and Pain can be much reduced. The only problem with reducing the pain or taking it away before you go to hospital is that you may be left longer in the queue as your injury might not be considered serious if you are not complaining. So have it checked out first and insist on an X-Ray if you suspect a fracture and have already taken remedies for the pain. Your health and safety is important.
Warts can occur anywhere on the body and the location of the warts is an indicator of the remedy needed. Homeopathic remedies are very effective in treating warts and are generally given in tiny pill form that is safe for children and adults. The overall boosting of the immune system by a constitutional remedy will benefit significantly.
Weight problems, Obesity; Anorexia; Sudden weight loss/gain:
Many of these problems are caused by emotional upsets and known causes others can be from outwardly unknown causes. The process of case taking can often elicit information which, even in itself, allows for a different understanding and a greater awareness of what is involved. Often an outsider, like a homeopath, without preconditions or pre conceived ideas may discover a key to the problem which can make a difference in approach and in the manner of treatment. Often that process needs time for a better outcome. We give that time.
Wetting, bed wetting, incontinence:
Problems :arising after getting wet or soaked in the rain or sitting on damp ground and 'not well since' getting wet can be helped. Bed wetting / incontinence can be helped and even partial deafness from getting the ears wet in the shower or in diving can be helped too.
General information: Generally Homeopathic remedies are given in the form of a small tablet or pill which is pleasant tasting and which children like taking.Sometimes it is just one pill and other times it might be taken for a period of time. All this depends on the circumstances in each case, including the length of time the person has the problem.
Regardless of what the issue is the process is similar i.e. to find a remedy that if given in a raw state would cause the turmoil or health issue to the patient that is similar to that which he is experiencing.
Do not come off prescribed medication.
The homeopathic remedies do not interfere with medication prescribed by your doctor and we DO NOT advise people to come off medication which has been prescribed for them.
It is helpful for us to get full details of the problem but just do the best you can and we will work with you to find the remedy.
