Side by Side at GrenfellSince the terrible fire at Grenfell Tower on 14 June 2017, Homeopaths Support have been running free clinics to help the survivors and witnesses, in the area.
All therapists are volunteers from all over the UK, and working side by side with their different disciplines, are offering support to the men, women and children affected.
Working at a local community centre, and children’s project Kids on the Green, we are seeing some amazing results from homeopathy, cranial sacral therapy, reflexology, acupuncture, plus other complementary therapies.
All our remedies, treatment couches, and equipment have been generously donated by colleagues, homeopathic pharmacies and members of the public.
Homeopaths Support see this as a long term project – the whole neighborhood has been affected, everyone knows someone who was in the tower or the immediate neighbourhood, and they will all need support for a long time to come.
Comment from one patient: "I wish I'd known you were here 2 weeks ago. I have been living in hell. Now I know that someone will listen to me and try to help."
She was a witness who could not get the screams out of her head or the faces at the windows. We spoke to her 2 weeks later and she reported that she was sleeping better, was managing her feelings of panic, and was so thankful to everyone who was treating her. She has spread the word in her neighbourhood, and has since brought friends along to the clinic, who have also been affected.

Gluten free - not as healthy as you thinkYou might think gluten-free is healthy but it can contain SEVEN times the fat.
Dr Miriam Stoppard has written an article stating that “there is nothing good about going gluten free” and that “no one should be on a gluten free diet unless they’re allergic, intolerant or have a rare autoimmune disease that attacks the body”. You may disagree with this and see plenty of clients who have benefited from cutting out gluten. It does however raise the important issue of the general public thinking that a gluten free product means a healthy product. We need to put pressure on gluten free food manufacturers to make their products healthier so perhaps this is a case of any publicity being good publicity!

Students and practitionersSupervision is a necessary part of training, and an important part of ongoing practitioner development. I was lucky enough to have excellent supervision during my training, and still do now I am in practice. This positive experience has made me feel passionately that good supervision should not be down to luck, but something that every practitioner of homeopathy should be entitled to.
My supervision experience includes:
