Herbal Medicine, University of Westminster
Thanos is a Herbalist and a Homeopath. He studied Herbal Medicine at the University of Westminster, graduating in 2007, and went on to practice as resident herbalist at a London clinic whilst studying for his Classical Homeopathy degree at the same institution. He is currently furthering his classical homeopathic education with George Vithoulkas, one of the most famous reformers of homeopathy during the twentieth century and the man who infused homeopathy with new ideas on a scientific base.
Thanos runs his Homeopathy and Herbal Medicine clinics on different days during the month. He also runs the Napiers low income clinic every Thursday afternoon.
Thanos's approach to treatment is in accordance with his belief that, to a lesser or greater extent, health, freedom and happiness are achievable by anyone who has the will and commitment to make long term changes and incorporate new, healthier choices into their life. To paraphrase Einstein, one cannot expect to achieve positive results without making positive changes! Thanos believes that herbal medicine and homeopathy are both powerful healing agents but in the majority of cases, lifestyle changes can often also accelerate recovery and contribute to establishing better overall health
what to expect from a homeopathy consultation
The homeopathic consultation lasts for an hour. During the consultation the patients will be asked about the specifics of the presenting condition such as location, sensation and what makes it feel better or worse as well as medical history, family history, other presenting or past problems and the mental emotional make up of the patient. The remedy will be prescribed in the form of a pill or tablet and is sent to the patient with clear instructions on how to take it. Follow up appointments for long standing conditions are usually booked after a month but may be earlier for acute cases. The follow up appointment is in order to evaluate the action of the remedy based on the patient's response and to decide whether to repeat, wait or change it.
Even though Thanos has different homeopathy and herbal medicine appointments and rates, he may make appropriate suggestions of integration or alteration between the two if he feels that it is in the patient's best interests.
Since April 2013 he has also been part of our D. Atkinson Herbalist shop team advising and helping customers over the counter.
