How it all started

Since a little child I was always fascinated with health. I remember making a herb garden at the age of 14 and reading up on healthy diets and meditation- it thrilled me to see our creator at work restoring health to man (even though at that time I could not articulate what I was experiencing). I have always been passionate about health and helping people and when the time came for me to choose a career, there was no doubt in my mind what route I would follow. For me there is nothing more fulfilling than being instrumental in the healing of another – be it physically, emotionally or spiritually. The thrill and satisfaction of being part of the journey and helping people regain their vitality, hope or enthusiasm for living, is worth more than money can buy. Being part of the pivotal cog that is a conduit to change people’s lives is an honour and gives my life purpose.

I completed a 5 year Master’s degree in homeopathy at the Durban University of Technology which included using clinical diagnostics and being able to treat a whole host of conditions holistically, as well as being legally able to run a primary health care practice, request lab tests and refer to GP’s or specialists if needed.

After about a year of being newly in practice, I moved to a little town in Mpumalanga, South Africa where I settled down with my beautiful wife and raised 3 incredible children, who make us proud every day. This was where the practice grew to not only incorporate homeopathy, but with further study I was able to incorporate other healing modalities incl. colonic irrigation, ozone therapy and floatation therapy. I also finished a diploma in functional medicine which gives further insight into the human body. So now I run an Integrative Medical Centre in Nelspruit, offering treatment for a host of diseases.

  • Homoeopathy is the mainstay of my practice, it is all encompassing and very effective at steering the body to health especially in today’s toxic environment where we are exposed to heavy metals, suppressive chronic medications, pollution and other body insults which have a negative effect on the body’s defence mechanism.
  • Homoeopathy is amazing at helping the body release emotional hurts, that prevent healing and feeling. For example, somebody’s husband has cheated on them and they are so devastated that since that time they have been sick and can’t seem to recover. Homeopathy is able to work on the emotional body to help release the hurt so the physical body can recover.
  • Homoeopathic treatment is safe and has no side effects on the body, it will assist your body to detoxify in the proper way.
  • Homoeopathy can be used in conjunction with conventional medication prescribed by your doctor, and as you heal you may even be able to reduce the doctor’s medication as we work to remove your chronic disease.

Homeopathy is both a science and an art. The practitioner has to interact with the patient holistically on all levels - physically, emotionally, and mentally. They have to understand each other and a bond of trust must be built. This is to better understand the patient, to know what makes them tick - how they relate to their environment, to their family, to their jobs and to their creator. The practitioner needs to discover the root causes of the illness, then be able to lead the body back to health with the stimulation of the homeopathic medication.


MY APPROACH

I like to empower the person to be able to take responsibility for their health condition without fear. I teach them about the rules and pathways the body follows to get sick or get well. These are LAWS and everybody follows these pathways. It is affected by diet, stress, environmental toxins, to name a few. I endeavour to help them build faith in their ability to get well, to hold their hand in the process and give encouragement and direction to a point where they are strong enough to take responsibility and not make health decisions based on fear, but rather on faith. Homeopathy is about understanding what your body’s defence mechanism is saying through the symptoms you present with. i.e. interpreting your symptom picture. I use the bodies detoxification organs to dump toxins and thus release inflammation to allow the body to heal at the appropriate level of health. The homoeopathic medications supply the stimulation and energy to the body to be able to heal. Once you begin to understand how your body is ‘wired’ we can work with your body’s defence mechanism to return you to improved levels of health, even possibly ones that you thought were not obtainable.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A HOMOEOPATHIC CONSULTATION.

Generally, results can be seen within 5-45 days depending on your specific state of health.

The following factors must be considered:

  • How long you have been suffering with the chronic condition (decades, years, months, weeks or days), usually for every year of your condition it can take about a month of retracing and reversal of symptoms for cure.
  • What organ system is most affected (nervous system, endocrine system, musculoskeletal system) Nervous and endocrine disorders are more serious and can take longer to heal than say musculoskeletal conditions.
  • How long you have been on allopathic drugs for your condition (1 week course of antibiotics or 10 years of hypertensive medication). Long term medication side effects and enzyme changes take longer to resolve then acute duration medication.
  • How congested your detox organs are with toxins. Chronic intoxication with metals, acidity and broken enzyme pathways take time, energy and resources to reverse.
  • Cases where there is long time emotional suppression (humiliation, anger, unforgiveness) can take a while to unravel, but results start and emotional changes are seen by the client in radical ways.

A few examples for you to get a better idea what can be expected....

CLIENT 1

A client consulted with chronic indigestion and heartburn, bothering him for 2 months, aggravated when he slept, without relief from regular treatment. I discovered that it began after an incorrectly treated flu. With a prescription of probiotics to repopulate the gut and an appropriate homoeopathic remedy, he had relief in 3 days, with absence of heartburn after 7 days. A quick response.

CLIENT 2

A client consulted due to long time lack of energy and fainting for 2 years. After clarification of anaemia due to low iron levels she was supplemented with iron, but it was noted that she suffered with adrenal fatigue due to recurrent stress in her life. After the second consult she admitted that she had hostilities at home and that the stress was all based around marital issues, where she felt she could not express her feelings to her husband regarding the manner in which he had mishandled the children. A prescription of a herbal iron formula with appropriate homeopathic remedy for supressed anger, allowed her to regain her energy after 3 months and again be able to tend to her home - something she was not able to do for the last 2 years due to illness.

CLIENT 3

A 14 year old boy with ADHD type symptoms, unable to concentrate and distracted from homework, which would take the whole afternoon to do 30 minutes of work. He is very shy at school and gets easily angry when he does not get his way or is contradicted. He has been on Ritalin for 2 years and has not grown much. Prescription: Granny was advised to reduce screen time on all electronic devices as the blue light from the devices impede thinking by disrupting production of neurochemicals in the brain. The boy was given a homoeopathic ‘Ritalin detox’ and an appropriate homoeopathic similimum remedy, with suggestion to eliminate gluten from his daily diet. At follow up the granny said that within the first week of treatment he was a lot more relaxed and his bouts of anger were greatly reduced. Within a month his concentration had much improved and he had grown 2 cm.
