3 Year Old Boy with Autism
My son has been attending Carmel at Leinster Homeopathy for about 6 months now. Before he started homeopathy, my son was in a world of his own. He was aggressive, inattentive, he would not even look at us at times and cuddles were few and far between. He didn’t communicate to us or his siblings.
From the very first week of starting the remedies, I could see a difference in my child. His face looked so different. He looked less confused and was looking at us more. By the second week, his aggression was almost gone and to our amazement, he wanted cuddles, hugs and kisses. He started to play with his brother and sister. Now, after 6 months, I find my son has come on in leaps and bounds. He is even starting to speak to us, like saying “ta ta” when handing us something.
I have and will always recommend Leinster Homeopathy to everyone, as Carmel is a wonderful person to work with. She is very understanding and really hears what you are saying and is able to point out things she has learned in dealing with Homeopathic Detox Therapy. She is helping me to get my son back.
Eczema Resolved with Homeopathy
Our 8 month daughter had eczema since she was 6 weeks old. She would scratch herself until her skin started to bleed. She was irritated all the time and crying a lot. She could not sleep at night because of itchy skin.
We tried every cream and lotion on the market. Most of them did very little in improving her skin or even made it worse. Our GP prescribed topical steroids. We didn’t feel comfortable using steroids on such young baby, so we looked for alternatives, which wouldn’t be toxic or harmful for our baby.
We googled to find a homeopath in our area, and Leinster Homeopathy came up. At the appointment, the lady homeopath was very kind and understanding. She asked lots of questions about our daughters symptoms and personality. By all that information she found a suitable homeopathic remedy for our daughter. The remedy was very easy to give.
After one week of using the remedy, our baby’s skin started to improve. There was less itching. After few weeks her skin was so much better. Little or no itching at all. We could finally have good nights sleep without her waking up scratching and crying.
She is 15 months old now and has clear, soft skin. She is a much happier baby now. We are so happy that we tried homeopathy. Will definitely use it again. Would advise anyone to try it.
Family having Constitutional Homeopathy
Carmel is like a “life-midwife”, as distinct from a birthing midwife. She has supported me in the caring and parenting of our two children from matters of physical health and nutrition to the emotional and psychological ups and downs of everyday life. She has been a trusted sounding board and advisor.
There is a deeply spiritual integrity to the way that Carmel works with her clients. She is gentle, warm, kind and compassionate, but she practices from a place of deep conviction. This is very comforting, particularly as one may often be vulnerable when seeking the support of a homeopath.
My two children have always loved going to see Carmel. Why wouldn’t they? They have her undivided attention, she listens so well to what they have to say, she engages completely with where they’re at, and most interestingly for them, she often gently challenges them in the way she responds to them, without platitude or cliché.
15 year old with Asperger’s Syndrome
We first brought our 15 year old son to Carmel for Homeopthic Detox Therapy in 2012. He has a diagnosis of Asperger’s Syndrome which has particularly caused him difficulty in social situations. He had previously been to another homeopath in his early years, when he had recurrent ear and throat infections, which were successfully resolved by homeopathy at that time.
Carmel took a very detailed case history and prescribed a constitutional remedy which I felt suited our son very well. Within days of taking that remedy, we noticed that he was engaging with us more, initiating conversations and voluntarily sitting with the family in the evening, instead of spending hours in his bedroom alone.
As well as an ongoing constitutional remedy, our son received a number of homeopathic detox remedies over a 2 year period. The most significant of these had to do with a medication which my wife had received during pregnancy. During this detox we saw a big jump in our son’s social engagement. He began to make friends at school and became more interested in the real world.
Our son continues to see Carmel for a constitutional remedy two or three times a year, according to need. He is now doing well in 3rd level education. He has not suffered as much from anxiety as other ASD children that we know. I believe this is, in no small measure, due to the ongoing support he gets from homeopathy. I highly recommend Carmel as a practitioner of homeopathy. We are delighted with the help we have got for our son.
Family Homeopathy: Vertigo and Sleep Disturbance
I have attended Carmel for many years now and that time has spanned many stages of my life from child rearing to menopause. She has always been my first port of call. She has an in depth knowledge of homeopathy but also has a vast knowledge of many aspects of a person’s well being and gives very sound, practical advice.
I recall when my 8 year old was suffering from sleep disturbances, after the upset of a car accident and Carmel was able to quickly identify a remedy which settled her back to normal routine.
I was, in the past, troubled by bouts of vertigo, which left me very unsteady in the mornings, and again she gave me a remedy which worked immediately. It had been suggested that I take medication for the problem but this was not necessary once I started to take the remedy.
I am delighted to be a patient of Carmel’s and would not hesitate to encourage others to contact her.
Repetitive Strain Injury Resolved with Homeopathy
I was completing a Master’s Degree while working full time at a new job, and began to suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury. I was experiencing constant pain which began in my right wrist but over the course of 3-4 weeks it spread to both wrists and my right forearm. As using a computer was essential for both work and study and as my Master’s deadline was only weeks away, this was a huge problem.
I tried exercises prescribed by a physiotherapist and bought expensive ergonomic equipment, which provided temporary relief, but the problem showed no real improvement, and I began to find it debilitating at work.
Seeing Carmel helped me identify the anxieties and stress I was experiencing, and within days of taking the remedy she prescribed I was 80% better. After a week, all of my symptoms had virtually disappeared. This made a huge difference to me, as I was able to continue working and complete my degree in time.
3 Year Old Boy with Autism
My son has been having Homeopathic Detox Therapy now for about 7 months. Before treatment his meltdowns and aggression and complete non-recognition of his own name were hard to cope with.
The benefits so far have been amazing and we have only started. His hand flapping has eased. It’s still there but not as strong. There has been a massive breakthrough in eye-contact. His sleep has also changed in that now he sleeps all night through. He has started to make new sounds and words and is communicating with gestures. He has also started to interact and play with his older brother which is amazing to watch, as before he would just sit on his own and play with wheels or be in a daze.
We feel as a family that we have been listened to, which is most important. The friendly reassuring talks with Carmel have been an amazing experience and the detail in which the problems are assessed are second to none. It’s never a rushed job with Carmel. If we need to contact her she is just a phone call or an email away and is always accessible. I most definitely recommend Homeopathic Detox Therapy and Leinster Homeopathy.
7 year old boy with Autism and Developmental Delay
Hi Carmel, just want to say thanks for all you’ve done so far with Danny. I’ve really noticed how far he’s come since he started with you 8 months ago. I was very pleased to have found you online and that you weren’t that far a drive away. I nearly forget the behaviours Danny had at that time. They seem so long away. Thank God we have overcome those!
Who’d have thought the child that seemed to be so afraid of his baby brother that he didn’t like to even look at him, now doesn’t mind him at all and will even sit right beside him and do his own thing.
There’s been a major improvement in Danny’s eye contact and he’s also improved at following demands. We’re still far from the level we would like him to be but towards the child he was at the beginning he has come a long way.
We have sailed through detoxing augmentin – a few bumps along the way but with your support and advice he has overcome any illness he has been fighting. Danny has also had a constitutional remedy, made to suit him and changed along the way. From that we’ve seen great improvements. He has stopped stripping off his clothes. Thankfully that too is now a distant memory.
We are grateful for all you’ve done with Danny and the fact that you are so responsive each and every time I contact you or have a question. You are always very helpful.
I will definitely be continuing with homeopathy. Thanks again.
5 Year Old Boy with Encopresis
I decided to try homoeopathy because my son Sam, was very unsettled in himself. For the previous 6 months Sam was having toileting accidents daily. His GP diagnosed Encopresis and prescribed medication for constipation and we were possibly going down the route of a scan.
Sam was about to start school and I was concerned that he wasn’t holding his pencil properly and that his eye contact was sometimes poor. Sam loved to talk but sometimes would talk at speed and at length – it was as if he wasn’t “tuned into” how the other person was hearing his story and often he lost the interest of the listener! Sam was also overly emotional about very small things, reacting by having big emotional outbursts, crying and shouting and running around. We found it hard to calm him at these times. Sam regularly got colds and it worried me that he was a fussy eater.
We had brought Sam to an OT who was helping him with his pencil grip and concentration but I felt something was missing as I didn’t see much improvement.
I was sceptical as to how homoeopathy would help Sam but was willing to give it a go! When I spoke to Carmel I immediately felt better because she took plenty of time to talk to me about Sam. Sam really liked Carmel because she is very warm and was interested in getting to know him – he played with her toys and was able to answer her questions in a relaxed way.
Carmel asked me about Sam’s birth and we discussed how he had needed to be in an incubator for some days and was separated from me and that he had been given a lot of antibiotics and anaesthetics as an infant. Carmel explained that sometimes these experiences and medications can cause an imbalance in the body and that it might help to detox these from Sam’s system as well as giving him an overall remedy to help him.
Sam started on his detox regime before going to school in September and it was like magic! I am so happy that I brought him because straight away a lot of his symptoms began to settle down. His encopresis was resolved immediately. His emotional outbursts have become much more manageable, less intense and much less often. He has managed the transition to school no problem. His pencil grip has improved and he is holding the pencil much better. There is still work to be done on his fine motor skills and we hope that further detoxes will help with this. He has only had one cold this winter and has started to eat fruit. His conversation skills have also greatly improved!
The results have been amazing – the remedies are so easy to take and Carmel explains everything so carefully – it feels like we are all on the one team and that I have someone to turn to if I have any worries! I now recommend Carmel to all my friends.
Persistent Cough, Diagnosed as Asthma, Resolved in 3 Weeks with Homeopathy. Verruca Gone in 6 Weeks.
My daughter, at age 3, had a cough which persisted for months. A GP diagnosed asthma, and prescribed an inhaler. My partner and I did not accept this, and we brought our daughter to Carmel. After about three weeks on the remedy, the cough disappeared, never to return. Our daughter is now 18 years old.
At about age five, my daughter and her mother both had verrucas. My partner attended a chiropodist, who “burnt” off the verruca. To this day, the location of the verruca is still sensitive, and verrucas have returned.
We brought our daughter to Carmel. During a period of about 6 weeks on the prescribed remedy, the verruca, as predicted by Carmel, changed colour, eventually turning black, and falling off. There is no sensitivity at what was the verruca’s location, and our daughter has never had verrucas since.
There have been other successes, but none as plainly obvious as the above two. I am both dismayed and bemused by people’s dismissal of Homeopathy as nonsense. I don’t have an opinion that it works, I KNOW it works.
“Antibiotics and Painkillers Didn’t Help At All” – 9 Months of Pain Relieved with Homeopathy
I had been suffering with ovary pain for a period of nine months and, after several doctors/hospital visits, I decided to seek the help of Carmel. I had never tried homeopathy before, and it really was kind of a last resort, because I just couldn’t stand the pain anymore. I had been on numerous different antibiotics and pain killers that just weren’t helping at all. I didn’t have a diagnosis, and I was led to believe that this pain was all in my head. This is where my healing journey really began.
The type of pain I was experiencing was very low down in the region of my ovaries. It was a burning, twisting, griping pain that just never went away. For the majority of each month, I’d have pain for at least 3 weeks of that month. I was doubled over in pain, and was constantly attached to my hot water bottle. However, after visiting Carmel she prescribed a remedy that suited my symptoms and my overall health and wellbeing began to improve, almost immediately. I was over the moon to wake up in the morning and not have to bend over to try and relieve the awful pain in my ovary. I couldn’t believe it. I have never looked back.
I am still under the care of Carmel, and feel that things are on track now and I am able to deal with any slight discomfort that I might experience from time to time. I am listening to my body more and feel much healthier than when I was constantly taking pain killers and antibiotics. They just weren’t helping me with my symptoms at all.
If anyone hasn’t tried homeopathy before, I would highly recommend it. Carmel has helped me lead a pain free life. She doesn’t just deal with the pain, she evaluates your whole life, your outlook on life, your mood, how you deal with different situations, and it really is a wonderful way to heal your body and soul.
I couldn’t recommend Carmel enough. She has given me my life back. I am so grateful to have found her. She is very professional, kind and understanding and really listens to you. Homeopathy has definitely changed my life.
Mammy Age 43 with 4 Boys
I had never been to homeopath session before and did not know what to expect. My first session, we sat down and spoke about all my concerns and Carmel really took the time to get to know me and understand each area of my life. Carmel is very friendly, approachable and has years of experience. This is not like a doctor visit where they listen to you for five mins and rush you out the door with a course of antibiotics. I went to Carmel with a list of concerns e.g.: high blood pressure/bloating/redness of skin/sex drive/mood swings/possible menopause, due to non-stop periods.
I feel like a different person now and have noticed a huge change in “me” almost instantly. Carmel gave me a contraceptive pill detox and now my period is working like clockwork and I feel I am a lot more in tune with my body. My redness in skin is gone and bloatedness completely gone, my moods are better considering a busy life with 4 kids.
If you are someone who is going through huge changes in your body and you can’t find the answer please, please go and book a homeopathy appointment, you will not be disappointed. This will be the best money you ever spent on yourself. Don’t go through everyday life accepting these changes and thinking they are normal that this is only happening to me, believe me you are not alone. Once you get the right treatment from Carmel, you will be like WOW I feel so different today, I feel like me again, so please take that first step. I look forward to my visits to Carmel every three months as it’s money very well spent.
8-Year Old Girl with PANDAS
Our eldest daughter changed overnight with behaviors that she had never had before (excessive hand washing, frequent urination, tics, extreme anxiety, no joy anymore). After receiving a diagnosis of PANDAS, we felt hopeless, confused and very overwhelmed and reading online only made the situation seem more bleak, with story after story of unsuccessful conventional treatments.
When I found Carmel online, after reading her qualifications and approach I was instantly encouraged that she could be the one to help our daughter. I was incredibly impressed by the amount of information Carmel required prior to our initial consult as this is something we did not experience with other homeopaths in the past and yet, is something I now feel is crucial in understanding a person as a “whole” when choosing a correct remedy.
After our consult she prescribed a remedy and within days I saw my daughter coming back to herself. Within weeks it was as if it had never happened. I remember clearly because we had a family vacation planned about 6 weeks after our remedy started and by that vacation, she was functioning completely as herself.
Any time we have had an acute situation arise since then Carmel has been instrumental in getting her back on track, whether it be from a regular illness such as coughs and colds, or a flare of PANDAS symptoms.
Carmel’s demeanor is outstanding and she has a thoughtful, gentle, caring approach that is very reassuring, especially to stressed parents. Carmel has been invaluable to our family and we owe her so much gratitude for the way she has helped us.
