As the Covid-19 pandemic continues around the globe, prolonged stress is taking its toll on many people’s mental health.
This year I have seen a major increase in people suffering from chronic health anxiety and they are desperately seeking relief from their constant worries and fears.
Struggling with anxiety is challenging at the best of times. But living amidst uncertainty in this current climate has resulted in health anxiety escalating to a whole new level for many.
I regularly include snippets of clients updates from my practice on my social media (Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest) and this week I’d like to share four client stories explaining how they found a natural solution to their chronic anxiety quite dramatically and rapidly using homeopathy.
Any illness for R. aged 33, would cause her immense anxiety. So much so, that she would become nauseous and vomit which was most distressing.
She would catastrophise believing she’d never recover. Above all, she’d worry about who would look after her children if she was ill or worse still, did not pull through.
She hated dealing with the uncertainty of ill health and playing the waiting game in her recovery.
In our follow up she shared the changes were remarkable just 6 days after her remedy:
“I felt a dramatic change and a really big improvement. I don’t have extreme anxiety. I don’t feel scared. That frightening feeling has gone away.
Asking for constant reassurance daily from loved ones– it’s gone.
The nausea with the anxiety – it’s gone.
The desire to vomit when feeling anxious – it’s gone.
The need for constant company to help my anxiety – it’s gone.
I definitely feel much better.
It’s as if I don’t care about all those things that used to make me anxious!”
Meet Alice, who spent a lifetime managing her anxiety. As she was able to navigate her life with controls in place to avoid panic setting in, when the pandemic started, old fears returned and new ones came to light. She explains:
“I’ve dealt with anxiety and panic attacks all my life, but they have been under control for the last few years. Since the Covid 19 crisis – I’m paranoid about this virus!
The worst thing for me about my anxiety and fear – it’s all about my health. It’s triggered by thinking I’m getting sick, fearing I might die, or feeling I don’t have control of my environment.
Having watched so many videos on social media on the coronavirus (true or not), being in quarantine and not really knowing the whole picture or how this will end, my mind and fears are out of control.
I explained how I felt to Eileen and she prescribed a remedy for me – and it has made a world of difference!
I feel so much better since taking it. I’m not worrying, I’m not obsessively going over the what-ifs, and if I sneeze, I don’t think I’m going to die.
It’s been a lifesaver for me as we go through this stressful time in our lives”.
C. aged 38 came to see me because anxiety and panic were overtaking her life. Now with the pandemic, she felt her anxiety was out of control.
On waking in the morning she described it like going into a black hole with racing thoughts, what if’s and worrying about her health. She had a knot in her stomach, her mouth was dry and she experienced heart palpitations. With every pain, she was convinced it was a tumour or cancer and that she was going to die.
She felt overwhelmed and exhausted with the constant mind battle of rational thinking versus the fear of becoming ill and dying, and no longer wanted to accept this as normal life.
She shares her experience of our work together below:
“I went to see Eileen after a long and difficult battle with anxiety, health anxiety in particular. And if I’m completely honest, postnatal depression too. I was in a very bad place, I was so teary at my first consultation.
Eileen was warm, kind and understanding. I felt I could be totally honest with her. Within two weeks my anxiety levels started to decrease, and steadily I improved.
I had a wobble around the start of Covid 19 and lockdown, I lost track of days and didn’t take my remedies. I got back on track with Eileen’s help and am still doing great.
I’ve used homeopathic remedies for other issues too, like earaches and it has worked wonders. I have definitely dodged quite a few antibiotics by using homeopathy.
I would highly recommend anyone struggling with anxiety to see Eileen. She asks all the right questions to get the full picture of your life and situation. It’s a very personal and individual treatment, the way it should be.”

Meet A. a female client aged 44 years old who was a constant worrier.
She worried about everything.
Her worst worries were related to her health and her family’s health.
Accidents, cancer, dying, heights, driving, or contracting Covid-19 were just some of the fears that troubled her most.
As well as that, she was living with a constant dread and sick feeling in her stomach which was taking its toll.
3 weeks after her remedy she reports…
“I’m a huge worrier and always have been. Not only do I worry for myself, I worry for everyone else.
From worrying constantly, I’ve stopped worrying. I’ve worried only once in 2 weeks and that passed quickly.
I had my period and didn’t even know I was getting it. I had no pain and no clots this time. I wasn’t moody, wasn’t upset and didn’t cry like I usually do.
My energy has improved. The sluggishness has improved and I am doing jobs I’ve always been putting off.
I’ve been easy going. I’m surprised at how relaxed I am. I am absolutely delighted.”
