Constitutional and practical homeopathic treatment for adults and children
Slavka Kubatova BSc (Hons) LCHE RSHom is a fully qualified and registered homeopath integrating classical homeopathic philosophy with modern practical methodologies, which provides a well rounded and appropriate approach to each patient.
Homeopathy is a holistic, gentle and effective system of medicine that works on the principle that “likes cure likes” using highly diluted substances which trigger the body’s own natural system of healing. Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, non-addictive and free from side effects. Homeopathy treats the whole person on every level instead of looking at symptoms separately as each individual patient expresses disease uniquely which in turn requires unique treatment. It is safe for pregnant women, babies and children and is a remarkably effective approach to restoring health and vitality.
Within this context, homeopathy has the ability to treat most modern-day acute and chronic complaints as an alternative to orthodox medicine, or as a complementary therapy. Acute complaints include colds, coughs, earaches, sore throats, injuries and fevers. Chronic complaints require a more detailed case analysis of the patient's mental, emotional and physical symptoms. Though the range of diseases treated is very wide, the experience of being treated leaves the patients feeling better in themselves and able to make beneficial changes in their lives as a result of improved health.
The most common conditions treated by homeopathy include:
• Allergies: asthma, eczema, hay fever, cat / dog allergies
• Childhood problems: teething, colic, ear and throat infections, coughs, ADHD,
ailments from vaccinations
• Digestive problems: IBS, constipation, diarrhoea, Crohn’s disease
• Women’s health: problematic periods, PMS, menopause, infertility, ailments
from the pill, pregnancy and childbirth, thrush, cystitis
• Men’s health: prostate, impotency, hormonal disorders
• Skin problems: psoriasis, acne, impetigo, cold sores, dermatitis
• Mental and emotional problems: anxiety, depression, stress, grief, insomnia,
low energy, poor memory
• Other ailments: migraines, arthritis, heart disease, ME, post-viral syndromes
Homeopathy also plays an important role in supporting people who have or have had cancer, using homeopathic remedies as a complementary therapy, to help them prepare for and go through their conventional treatment, and to strengthen and maintain their health and well-being afterwards.
There is a growing body of published research in good quality peer-reviewed journals showing that homeopathy has a positive effect. Up to the end of 2011, there have been 164 peer-reviewed papers reporting randomised controlled trials (RCTs) in homeopathy. This represents research in 89 different medical conditions. Of those 164 RCT papers, 71 (43%) were positive, 9 (6%) negative and 80 (49%) non-conclusive.

More on homeopathic research
My personal experience with homeopathy began during my childhood. My mother practised privately as a paediatrician offering homeopathic treatment as an alternative to the harsh orthodox drugs typically prescribed for children. I was regularly treated for symptoms of everyday ailments; from coughs, colds, sore throats and allergies to more serious cases of childhood diseases using homeopathic remedies to great effect. However, it wasn’t until I developed a chronic problem with high blood pressure in my twenties that I really felt the full positive impact of the homeopathic constitutional therapy. After four years of purely orthodox and unsuccessful treatment for my condition I sought out an experienced homeopath in London and within weeks the benefits became obvious. My blood pressure returned to normal as well as my energy and general health improved immensely. Truly impressed and inspired, I decided to learn more about this powerful yet gentle form of medicine.
I completed a three year training at the Centre for Homeopathic education (CHE) where I was awarded a 1st class BSc degree in Homeopathy and LCHE certificate and became a fully qualified homeopath. CHE is the largest homeopathy college in the UK (validated by Middlesex University) which offers a complete education in the art and science of homeopathy. This unique course is renowned for training in an integrated style of homeopathy, which combines classical and practical approaches.
I use my knowledge of classical homeopathic philosophy with modern practical methodologies to ensure that treatment is tailored to meet the individual requirements of each patient. I am able to work with patients who present with complex physical, psychological and emotional pathology. My aim is to help the patients achieve freedom from limitation in their lives and to reach a level of health where they are no longer dependent on any medicine or therapy.
Apart from practising homeopathy I also work at Helios Homœopathy, a leading homeopathic pharmacy, based in Covent Garden, Central London. Helios has over 3,500 remedies available and is part of the global homeopathic community serving practitioners, students and the public worldwide. With a team of other qualified homeopaths I provide an expert advice to help our customers use homeopathy with confidence.
I am a registered member of the Society of Homeopaths (SoH); all homeopaths registered with the Society must have an appropriate qualification and work according to the Core Criteria and National Occupational Standards as well as strictly within the Code of Ethics. They also have full professional insurance and are committed to continuous professional development. The SoH is the largest organisation registering and insuring homeopaths in the UK. The Society was founded in 1978 to forward the development of the profession. Its aim is high quality homeopathic health care for all. In September 2014, the Society’s register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
I also use Hair Tissue Mineral Analysis (HTMA) test as a diagnostic tool in my practice. It helps to identify heavy metals toxicity as well as mineral imbalances, metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress and glandular activity. Based on these findings the treatment can be more precisely tailored for clients with suspected deficiencies and toxicity using homeopathic remedies, supplements and/ or other means. For this purpose I use Analytical Research Labs, Inc.

The Homeopathic Consultation
The first appointment will usually take around an hour to an hour and a half. Questions about your lifestyle, eating habits and preferences, temperament, personality, sleep patterns and medical history will help me to form a complete picture of you. This picture will be matched to the symptoms of your illness in order to prescribe a particular type and strength of homeopathic medicine. You will then be given or sent a homeopathic remedy to take usually in tablet or liquid form. After taking your remedy you may notice some changes leading to a gradual increase of your well-being and lifting of your physical complaints. These changes are discussed and assessed during your follow-up appointments which usually take between thirty and forty minutes, at intervals of four to six weeks. These are very important for maintaining and supporting your healing process. The length of treatment varies from one individual to another, and this will be discussed with you at your first consultation. It will depend on several factors such as how long you have had your condition and how well you respond to treatment, as well as the effects of current or historic medication.

Slavka was recommended to me by a friend. I needed help with my 18 month old son's troubled sleeping at night and very difficult teething problems. Slavka understood my son's symptoms immediately and prescribed remedies accordingly. We saw Slavka for several months until all of my son's teeth came through without any problems and he started sleeping through the night without waking. Recently, she also helped both of my children to get over chicken pox. Slavka is always happy to answer any questions I may have regarding homeopathy in general, or suitable remedies for both my children and myself in treatment of minor acute ailments. Slavka's cheerful personality, gentle, sensitive approach, sound knowledge and enthusiasm for homeopathy make her a wonderful practitioner, and I can't recommend her highly enough to anyone seeking homeopathic treatment.
My first experience with homeopathy was a year ago when Slavka began treating my migraines and allergies. The frequency of my migraines has reduced significantly since then and also my pollen allergy was much less intense this spring / summer than ever before. Homeopathy has improved my life in many ways. I continue to see Slavka for consultations regularly and I'm looking forward to further improvements.
For many years my 16 year old granddaughter was frequently ill with recurring colds and coughs. Her school attendance suffered, resulting in her missing more than 200 lectures a year. She was always behind with her studies as she would invariably be ill again before she was able to catch up. This roller-coaster of illness persisted for several years. She was unsuccessfully treated by an immunologist and several other specialists. Eventually we were referred to Slavka by our paediatrician. Within 6 months of starting the homeopathic treatment my granddaughter's condition improved by 80%. I recommend Slavka as a practitioner, and the course of homeopathic treatment she prescribed, to all mothers who are feeling helpless as a result of recurrent illnesses suffered by their children. We have a lot to thank Slavka for.
