To treat patients, homeopaths use a variety of natural remedies such as plants, minerals and animal sources. They treat a range of problems, presenting with physical, emotional and psychological symptoms.
Homeopaths view healthcare from a holistic perspective, using their skills to assist the natural tendency of the body to heal itself. Some homeopaths are medically qualified (with additional homeopathic training), while others are purely practitioners in homeopathy.
Complementary medicine and health care is a growing area in the UK, with both the public and the conventional medical establishment showing increased interest. As a result there are now some opportunities for experienced practitioners to work within the National Health Service (NHS). However, as encouraging as this interest is, it is unlikely to provide extensive work opportunities in the foreseeable future.
Most UK practitioners are self-employed, typically working in private practice alongside other complementary therapists such as acupuncturists or reflexologists. Those who are self-employed will need to publicise their services in order to build their business. This can be done by a combination of talks and presentations, on a website and by word of mouth - the best publicity of all is a satisfied customer.
