Insights from a Homeopathic Practitioner

By Peter Berryman

Meet Peter Berryman, ATMS President and homeopathic practitioner, who has been practicing natural medicine for 36 years.

Specialising in Homeopathy, Peter is also a qualified accredited Naturopath. Through this approach he helps treat anything from simple health issues to chronic problems.

How did you get into Natural Medicine and why?

My older sibling works in conventional medicine so health care is significant in my family. When I was younger I remember she advised me to find a better way to practice medicine, which is what led me to find Natural Medicine.

Through my international travels, my many years of education and much clinical experience, I believe I’ve found a discipline of health care that provides a unique approach to improving the holistic health of my clients.

Tell us about your modality?

Homeopathy is a holistic and dynamic discipline that especially helps with long-term health problems. This is its medical market niche. It offers to uniquely treat each client’s physical, mental, emotional, and lifestyle issues with a personalised approach to their health care.

There is a growing demand in the community from clients with chronic health issues, and there aren’t that many practitioners able to truly help them. I find homeopathy to have the least limitations in clinical practice, whilst also being the most cost effective.

Why are you passionate about Natural Medicine?

I believe Natural Medicine delivers a truly holistic approach to health care, as it looks for the core of the problem rather than just trying to treat the surface symptoms. Through this curative approach we can also help clients to prevent health problems in the future.

We mustn’t forget that Natural Medicine is a complementary discipline to work together with all other medical disciplines, including conventional medicine. What we aim to do is provide patients with the best information for them to make a well-informed choice.
