Welcome to Plan B: your Homeopath in Birchington, Kent
Thank you for visiting my website.
Plan B Natural Health has been established to provide practical, natural solutions to your health challenges. It has grown out of my 20+ year career in complementary therapies in London, Orpington and Whitstable. I practice in the lovely coastal village of Birchington, Kent and specialise in Homeopathy, the benefits of which I am sharing with my local community and the Thanet region.
Plan B Natural Health is ideally located for those living in Birchington, Westgate, Broadstairs, Margate, St Nicholas and surrounding villages. Homeopathy and Nutrition work beautifully together to help manage and reduce the scale of health challenges for the people of Thanet. I also continue to consult with patients from Herne Bay, Beltinge, Whitstable and Canterbury. But don't worry if you don't live in the area - I can consult with you via Skype (read more here).
The practice room is bright, quiet and private, providing a safe and pleasant space for you to share your story. Parking is available or, if you're using public transport, the clinic is a 5 minute walk from the Birchington train station or is served by regular bus routes 34, 38 and 8.

What's different about Plan B?
I think it's fair to say that we have become a nation of pill poppers, expecting the answer to our ailments to be delivered by pharmaceutical intervention. The pharmaceutical industry is enormous, estimated to be worth $1.1bn worldwide in 2017/18.
Plan B differs in that I prescribe very few remedies on a short term basis. One of the founding principles is that of minimum dose. Homeopathy does not need to be repeated long term. It is a safe, economical and ethical approach to your health. I believe that less is more, and that the success of any therapy should be judged by how often you need to repeat it. With over 20 year's training and experience in natural health therapies enables me to interpret your case through different lenses. I am not limited to one approach which makes many complex cases accessible.
One size does not fit all. I believe in an integrated approach to health - that the 'one size fits all' approach as broadly followed in the Western World - has its limitations. Whilst we live longer, it comes with a price tag: often a reduced quality of life with chronic, degenerative and terminal illnesses. Equally, I believe that conventional medicine has it's place - I wouldn't want to be without it in an emergency. Diagnostics play a key role in defining what the problem is and surgical advances are truly staggering. I do, though, think the NHS - and its patients - would benefit from the collective experience and wisdom of traditional and complementary therapies. Such a collaboration would save our beloved - and beleaguered - NHS time, money and resources which could be invested elsewhere. I think a fresh perspective is long overdue. To quote the great Einstein, "...insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results."
Food for thought: how many people do you know that aren't on any medication? Rarer still: how many elderly people do you know that are medication-free? I don't know about you, but I don't recall people on multiple medication when I was growing up. I'll leave that thought with you, and ask that you consider why that might be. How has the pharmaceutical industry become so prevalent in our global economy, and at a local level, in our GP surgery? It is truly staggering when you see the bags full of medication dispensed on repeat prescription alone. And the pharmacies even provide transport to get the drugs to you! We have become a dependent society.
Did you know … that polypharmacy is now recognised as a condition by medical science? This is where a patient is taking multiple medications for more than one chronic condition. Drug interactions are increasingly common and as society ages and longevity increases, this is considered to be an issue of increasing concern.
