HOMEOPATHY AND MIGRAENE'

As homeopaths we look for the underlying cause/s of the symptoms using the vegatest.There is usually a varying combination of hormonal imbalances,organ malfunction,allergy/sensitivity problems,lifestyle issues and psychological factors at the root cause.Each patient is assessed on an individual basis and a specific regime set up.

N.B.Some migraenes are related to neck problems,which we would treat with chiropractic.
