These are some case stories and personal opinions of just a few of my patients, based on their own lived experience as empirical evidence.
"Just wanted to ask: what is in the little balls you sent me? I mean, I don't know if it's a coincidence, but since receiving them last week I've been sleeping amazing. Even tho I don't like sleeping all the way through the night, I have been, and waking up feeling great. Many thanks."
Mr DM-M, Darlington
[33 year old man who presented with chronic insomnia and very poor sleep quality amongst other things.]
"I appreciate your prescribing which is very specific, tailor-made and provides relief!"
Mrs IJ, Stockton-on-Tees
[42 year old woman, very busy as a mother and care-worker, presenting with aches and pains in various joints, including her knees, and frequent headaches and migraine.]
"Thank you for another year of relief from the nasal tyranny!!"
Mr JL, Bristol
[26 year old man with a lifelong history of deeply troublesome hay fever stopped in its tracks by homeopathic treatment. ]
"I've been meaning to write to you for weeks. My lack of hay fever this year has been awesome, thanks to you. I simply have no or v little symptoms. I have taken the top-up of [remedy name removed] twice and that has worked; I am cycling loads and feel sooo much better, less tired and blocked up. Thank you so much."
Mr MH, Rousdon
[56 year old man presenting with a mix of debilitating symptoms, of which hay fever and asthma were only two.]
"In the words of the little boy Elliot, in E.T. - 'It's working!' My remedies are amazing. Feel like I've been set free from tri-neuralgia. Don't wear a scarf [over her face] and don't have to think about temperatures, it's brilliant. Thanks so much."
Ms SW, Okehampton
[54 year old woman presenting with trigeminal neuralgia of 20 years' standing (for which she was reluctant to take anti-epilepsy medicine as a 'last ditch' medical prescription), and menopausal hot flushes.]
" A** [daughter's name removed] seems completely OK in herself; eczema is at bay, and she is more content in the evening/bedtime - she's switching off the light herself and actually going to sleep now. She's not bothered by her nose at this moment. We would both be pretty happy if this is the norm for her all year round!"
Mrs RB, Sidmouth
[Nine year old daughter presented with chronic runny nose, cough, eczema and real difficulties with settling at bed-time and sleeping.]
“I mentioned that my doctor has been doing regular blood tests to monitor the rising platelets and my kidney function. They are now both healthy!! The doctor was clearly excited and impressed (surprised?) by the result, when I spoke to her on the phone on Wednesday. I told her that I had been to a Homeopath. They need to know!"
Mrs SH, Exeter & Shipley
[69 year old woman presenting with stress and fatigue, swollen glands, elevated leucocyte levels, and tests showing growing problems in kidney function.]
“I just wanted to let you know that [daughter's name removed] is a different person: she sleeps all night, rarely has eczema, and has colour in her cheeks. Thank you so much."
Ms EC, Exmouth, Devon
[5 year old girl presented with life-long eczema, constant colds and sleep issues]
"My remedy took away symptoms so wide ranging and demoralising that I thought I would have them for life. After one week on the remedy they were fast disappearing, after three weeks they had completely gone, and when I was interrogated recently by my son regarding my health I discovered they were so completely gone that I'd forgotten they were ever there.
I can't recommend her highly enough."
Mrs SC, Lustleigh, Devon
[52 year old woman who had been to A&E with severe palpitations, and was living with IBS and increasingly severe joint pains.]
"After suffering with severe stress headaches for a number of years I decided to seek the help of a homeopath, to try to stop my constant consumption of painkillers. After having had my 'constitutional remedy' it's only now I realise how run down I was. Within a few days of taking the remedy my headaches were gone, and I can honestly say that they have not plagued me since. It has made a huge difference to me."
Mr AA, Ilminster, Somerset
[39 year old man presenting with daily stress headaches.]
"I first visited Sandra in September 2014, as I had large and troublesome ovarian cysts and had been strongly advised by a gynaecologist to undergo surgery. Following an extremely thorough initial consultation (which focused on my whole life, as well as my whole body), I began a recovery journey towards a healthy self - one which had lain buried under years of fatigue, sadness, depression, addiction, shame and general self-neglect. In July 2015 the gynaecologist has advised that I do not now require surgery - the cysts have shrunk and I am pain free.
I would not have a moment's hesitation in recommending Sandra if you want to get your physical and emotional life back on track."
Ms JS, County Durham
[48 year old woman presenting with large ovarian cysts, fibro-cystic breasts, stress, anxiety and depression.]
“Sandra was recommended to me by a friend who had found that her asthma symptoms had been relieved by her homeopathic treatment.
“Sandra has helped me and members of my family with homeopathic remedies for a number of conditions, including hay-fever, labrynthitis, menstrual and stress-related symptoms.
“I had tried it all - creams, 'special' vitamins, hypnotherapy, and even laser therapy - but my problem with heat, and blushing in particular, remained as fiery and stubborn as ever. It was really getting me down, causing me to avoid social situations and making the idea of a relationship seem painfully unrealistic. Then someone suggested that homeopathy might help, so under the recommendation of others, I decided to book an appointment with Sandra.
“Sandra Joyce treated me for re–occurring headaches, feelings of panic and constant tiredness. All three were ongoing difficulties that I thought was normal for me.
