Many people have found homeopathy to be a safe, gentle and helpful treatment for a variety of illnesses.

Homeopathy is based on the premise that “like cures like” and therefore the consultation is very specific and focuses on you the individual your  thoughts, feelings and sensations for your particular symptoms.

At the end of the consultation a remedy may be prepared and administered. A follow up appointment is usually required to monitor the patient. Homeopathy does not require a referral for an appointment.

Adele is a graduate of Nutritional Medicine and Homeopathy, a qualified NIA Technique and Ageless Grace Instructor and a member of the Australian Natural Therapists Association.

Her interests are in health and wellbeing and the prevention of disease. As a homeopath, Adele uses safe, gentle and effective natural methods to treat acute and chronic conditions in people at any stage of life from infants to adults.
