What is Medical Homeopathy?

Medical Homeopathy is a holistic approach delivered by qualified doctors that uses a low dose of natural medicine to stimulate a self-healing response in the body.

Medical Homeopathy can be useful to improve symptoms and wellbeing across a wide range of long-term or complex conditions including childhood eczema, ADHD, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, obesity, and anxiety or depression. It can be used successfully alongside conventional medicine.

For further information, please visit the Faculty of Homeopathy or British Association of Homeopathy websites which provide a wide range of information about and resources in support of this complementary medicine.

Our Team

Our team of GMC registered Medical Homeopathic doctors are all members of the Faculty of Homeopathy, the registering body for statutorily regulated healthcare professionals who use Homeopathy in their clinical practice.

Being fully trained in conventional and complementary medicine means  that our doctor will always consider all medical avenues for their patients, and apply their knowledge using an Integrative Medicine model.

Our Medical Homeopathy team:

  • Dr Elizabeth Thompson (Bristol)
  • Dr Willa Muir (Street)
  • Dr Domnita Neagu (Bristol and Bath)
  • Dr Julie Geraghty (Bristol)
  • Dr Kathy Drewett (Bristol)

NHS Clinics

Following a decision by the local Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in August 2018, we will no longer be able to offer NHS appointments for homeopathy from February 2019.

If you are one of our NHS patients you will still be able to make an appointment with us until that time. We are writing to all patients with more information, but you can ring us to find out more and book your last NHS appointment.

We recognise that changes to this NHS service is going to impact those of you who otherwise can’t afford complementary and holistic approaches to healthcare. We are seeking to make medical homeopathy as accessible as possible and hope to have more low-cost options for patients in Bristol in the near future.
