Homeopathy can help with a whole range of conditions, particularly those which have failed to respond to conventional medicine, such as arthritis, asthma, migraine, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, eczema and irritable bowel syndrome. Homeopathy can be effectively used alongside conventional medicine and is safe to use at all life stages including in pregnancy and during breastfeeding.
