“I combined my knowledge of homeopathic remedies & encouraged my patients to use the pelvic floor exerciser. The results were staggering!” – Hilary’s Story

Homeopathy

My interest in homeopathy began over 23 years ago when I gave birth to my first son, Ben. At 9 months old, he developed a persistent cough and over the next 18 months, after many courses of antibiotics were prescribed, the cough continued. By this time I noticed he had also become increasingly prone to ear and chest infections. At just 2 years old, he ended up in hospital with pneumonia.

At this stage I decided to take Ben to a homeopath.  I knew very little of homeopathy at the time, but I had recently been to a talk and felt it was worth a try.  Over the course of the next 12 months, with homeopathic treatment, Ben’s cough started to improve. I also noticed he became more resistant to infections and was generally a much happier child.  Homeopathy had treated all of him – not just his cough.

I am not against antibiotics, or indeed any other orthodox medicine.  They may be invaluable in certain circumstances, and can indeed save lives.  What I learnt from Ben’s experience is that too many antibiotics, given repeatedly, can weaken the immune system. Hence my interest in homeopathy began.  I started to look into adult education classes and signed up for a ‘Homeopathy for Beginners’ Course, run by a local homeopath. She inspired me so much that a year later I was sitting at a desk in the College of Homeopathy and went on to complete their 4 year training course, qualifying as a homeopath in 1997.

I then went on to undertake Practitioner Development Training at the Lakeland College of Homeopathy, and have also completed extensive training with Steve Johnson of the Alaskan Flower Essence Project.  I find that combining essences with homeopathic remedies can be the most powerful medium for facilitating change.  As well as running a successful practice in Ewell Village, Surrey, I also lecture at homeopathic colleges, teaching about the endocrine system and our hormones.  More recently I discovered yoga and expanded my teaching to become a guest tutor at a yoga teacher training school.

10 years ago I discovered TensCare’s pelvic floor exercisers. Many women come to see me with bladder/uterine/hormonal/libido imbalances and I soon became aware of just how big the subject of incontinence was and how many women it affects.  There are many homeopathic remedies that can help tone our muscles but it is essential that we also exercise them.

I began to combine my knowledge of the endocrine system, homeopathic remedies and flower essences and also encouraged my patients to use the pelvic floor exerciser. The results were staggering!  Not only does it exercise this very important muscle but it also teaches us where the muscle is. With my knowledge and training I was well positioned to take on the role of Continence Advisor at TensCare – helping customers with any advice or questions they have. Bringing awareness to this area of the body is so important and seeing the results change people’s lives makes my job worthwhile.
