Holistic Therapy for Effective Health Restoration.

Functional Holistic Medicine.

Fran Swainston , who, after decades in homeopathic medical practice, discovered that chronic illness requires more than pills for treatment and recovery. 

Fran graduated from the University of Cape Town, and thereafter a full-time 3-year specialisation course at the College of Homeopathy, Regents Park, London, England. She has worked with Nelson's Homeopathic Pharmacy in London, Neal's Yard Apothecary in Brighton,England, Weleda Anthroposophical Pharmaceuticals as their national sales representative in South Africa, and Pharma Natura Pharmaceuticals as Head of their Homoeopathic Division in Johannesburg.

In the early '90s on returning to South Africa, homeopathy was not a branch of medicine as it is today because it was regarded by many scientists and doctors as an ineffective form of treatment. All that has changed now as more people are moving away from harsh toxic chemical medical treatments and homeopathy has become an established branch of medicine in South Africa and throughout the world. Fran established a free homeopathic clinic in Cape Town in the '90s, using the profits from the sales of a range of products she developed. The products were a great success and the clinic was a valuable service to the community, most of whom had not previously been treated homeopathically, as homeopathic consultations are expensive and, in those days, one could not claim for homeopathic treatment from medical aid.

Once the clinic was set up and running smoothly with a staff of 3 homeopathic doctors, Fran left for a trans-Africa research expedition. During the expedition, she was able to treat people with tropical and rare diseases not usually seen in urban areas, and also emergency medical conditions which are usually treated in a hospital casualty ward, because hospitals and medical facilities are scarce in Africa. This invaluable experience enabled her to use homeopathy for illnesses that in the developed world would only be treated with chemical drugs. She experienced the true efficacy of homeopathy. It can work instantaneously if the correct remedy is given at the right time. Situations, where the patient would take months or weeks to recover, can shorten their recovery period considerably, and life-threatening injuries can be rendered repairable.
After the trans-Africa expedition, Fran spent some time in California, U.S.A., researching her book on obesity and its cure, Get Slim Stay Slim Naturally which was published by Struik on her return home to South Africa. Her most recent book Homeopathy The Complete Manual is available at online bookstores. Taking time out of her medical practice to raise her children gave her the opportunity for research which has evolved a classical homeopathic perspective into a practice which applies these principles in a functional holistic medicine practice. 

Facilitating Cure.

The innovative approach of using movement as one of the modalities to uncover the underlying cause of a condition, be it physical or mental, reduces the feeling of discomfort  many people have talking about deep personal issues, and also puts them closer in touch with their bodies so that symptoms that are considered unimportant and often forgotten can be exposed. The movement in and of itself can facilitate the healing response by manipulating lymph movement and improving circulation, while simultaneously stimulating pressure points to release negative blocked energy.

A combination of conversation, postural poses, pressure point manipulation, functional food diet, natural remedies, counselling and postural energy realignment are used in combination for a  holistic therapeutic solution.
