If you have a chronic or complicated condition it is best to see a qualified homeopath rather than trying to treat it yourself. Homeopaths will take into consideration many other factors which cannot be done by ourselves in such situation.

Of course it’s important to say that you should always consult your physician in case of serious illness or injury.
