What is homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a form of holistic medicine. It is used in many countries around the world, and in some cases, is the first point of call for all health issues. Homeopathy treats the person as a whole, rather than specific conditions in isolation. We consider all your health needs, be they physical or mental and emotional.
Who can be helped?
Because homeopathy is a gentle system of healing, it is suitable for everyone, including babies. Remedies are safe, stimulating the body’s own immune system.
What happens during a consultation?
You will be given time to explore all aspects of your health. Your initial consultation may take an hour or more, your homeopath will then research a suitable remedy for your individual needs. Follow-up consultations are usually shorter and an appointment will be made for you.
Who are our homeopaths?
The clinic is staffed by fully qualified clinicians who are registered with the Society of Homeopaths. They volunteer their time and expertise. There may be student homeopaths present, undergoing training at the North West College of Homeopathy (www.nwch.co.uk).
How much does it cost?
We ask for a donation of £10 for each consultation. This is to help the Zion Centre cover the cost of providing and delivering any remedy you are given and the cost of the facilities the clinic uses at the centre.
Narcotics Anonymous Group
Addiction is a disease that can happen to anyone and the reasons for addiction are many. Whatever the circumstances, it really doesn’t matter. Addiction is a progressive disease similar to other chronic diseases such as type II diabetes, cancer, and cardiovascular disease.
NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a non-profit fellowship for all people whose lives have become unmanageable through the use of drugs. It believes one of the cornerstones of living drug free is the therapeutic value of addicts working with each other to achieve recovery. In meetings members regularly share their personal experiences with each other, not as professionals but as ordinary people who have discovered that sharing brings about solutions to their problems.
Anonymity is a vital part of this fellowship enabling everyone to attend without fear of social repercussions.
