Sue Leach MA LCPH RSHom Homeopathy, food intolerance testing and Owner of The Natural Health Hub I came to homeopathy 21 years ago when my daughter was nine months old and I had mastitis. An NCT friend suggested homeopathic remedies and, well, I’ve never looked back – boob went from concrete solid, red hot raw and so painful I didn’t want my poor child near it to back in action within a day. First I was intrigued but sceptical, then I began to experiment with day-to-day remedies, then after seeing a homeopath I was a convert. Since then homeopathy has navigated me in sickness and in health, through some great life triumphs, plus divorce, a major career change and bringing up a child on my own for a while. I am proud to say that my daughter never took antibiotics until she was 20 – then, hey ho, she was out of my clutches at university… Sometimes my homeopath’s prescriptions have given me such an emotional boost that I’ve felt like a whole new person; recently, for instance, I’ve acquired a new drive and focus, able to take on way more, and The Natural Health Hub is the result. I believe homeopathy has also been a powerful preventive force in maintaining good physical health. I graduated as a homeopath in 2004 from the College of Practical Homeopathy (www.college-of-practical-homeopathy.com) in London. There I was trained not only in classical homeopathy but also in methodologies that enable me to take a flexible, realistic approach to the types of illnesses that we encounter today and the quality of life we expect. I specialise in women, children and babies, often work alongside conventional drugs, and may also use herbs and flower essences. I am a member of the Society of Homeopaths (www.homeopathy-soh.org), the homeopathic regulatory organisation, which means I have to operate by a strict code of ethics, take out professional insurance and maintain a high standard of care and conduct, kept right up to date by continuous professional development. The RSHom register of homeopaths is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA), which sets standards for professionals working in care occupations. I also belong to a pioneering group of homeopaths who are responsible for expanding our repertoire with new remedies specifically suited to the tough, complex demands of the 21st century. Before training as a homeopath I was a freelance journalist and editor, specialising in women’s health and emotional issues.
