About Me

As a teenager I found ‘The Organon of Rational Medicine ‘ by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in my school library & I realised that I wanted to be a homeopath right then & there! However it was many years before I eventually achieved that ambition.

After A-levels I moved from Northern Ireland to Birmingham (I thought that it, being the UK’s second biggest city, would be ‘hip & happening!’) after a few years I eventually became an electronics engineer in the RAF (Royal Air Force).

I left after serving 6 years, & remembered my desire to be a homeopath all those years before & before I knew it, I’d enrolled at The Centre of Homeopathic Education to begin a 4-year degree course!…at this point I STILL hadn’t tried homeopathy for myself, I just knew that I agreed with Dr Hahnemann’s book that I had carried on my travels wherever I went.

It was early in my studies that I discovered that the ‘mystery illness’ that kept me doing ‘light duties’ in the RAF for over 18-months was actually caused by the cocktail of vaccinations I had had a few months before. This started my investigation into how homeopathy can reverse vaccine damage that eventually led to my interest in the treatment of autism.

I graduated in 2009 & now work full-time as a homeopath. I see people in my clinic in London and over Skype. I also supervise a student clinic, as well as working in one of the homeopathic pharmacies dispensing remedies & giving advice on acute conditions.

I treat a wide range of conditions, but have particular interest in treating children with autism, which I believe to be a reversible condition often caused by toxins (be they from vaccinations, or other medications or sources of heavy-metals).

    Alan, we have been in touch previously , my friend passed my details,to,you.
    My son is suspected of having autism and we are seeing improvements with biomedical interventions.
    I am interested in homeopathy and recently got a book about how to treat children’s common illnesses. I am struggling to understand how it works and for me I need to understand it to do it.
    Can you recommend any websites at all ?

    Dear Alan, My daughter has 4 month old twins. They have received only one vaccine to date. Do you think that they should not receive any vaccinations? And if yes what information can I pass on to her to convince her of this? She will be taking them in a few weeks for their next visit and next vaccine. She is going to space them and only give one at a time. What are your thoughts.

    Thank you for any information you can give me.

      Hi Joyce,

      Lovely to hear from you. I can’t advise you on vaccinations on here, it wouldn’t be appropriate. If your daughter is interested, I would be very happy to talk to her over Skype about the issue.

      It’s a good idea to space them out if she does decide to give them. If you want, get your daughter to email me and we can discuss the matter.

      Kind regards

    Dear Alan, just wanted to send you a note about the good things happening with Jinson. Jinson is our ten yr old son, he started having rages and crying bouts that would last for hours for no apparent reason and nothing would stop them. We went to his pediatrician, allergists, neurologist, psychologists and all they would say was, “Well it’s all because oh his ADHD” I asked numerous doctors could this be autism or PANDAS and all said definitely not. In the meantime our whole life was disrupted and I was ready to have him committed just to have some peace when I came across the PANDAS trial that Alan was doing. I skyped with him for over an hour (which was way more time than I got from any doctor that I had seen so far). He told me that he thought that Jinson suffered from autism and PANDAS, finally something to go on. He recommended 3 homeopathic remedies and we noticed changes immediately. No more rages, no more OCD and he is back to happy loving little boy who doesn’t say he hates everybody and wants to hurt himself. He’s still quirky but I think using homeopathic remedies recommended by Alan will only make him even better. Thank you for giving me back my son and my sanity.

    Hi Alan,
    My son is 5years old and is on the autism spectrum.we have previously used homeopathy along with other biomedical treatments with some improvements. Now he has speech and can communicate his needs only in words but not in sentences. His eye contact is still low and he occasionally has meltdowns and aggression(scratching and biting others). he is in a mainstream class and he enjoys reading and puzzles but he doesn’t play with his peers.Many times,he laughs without reason and itches his genitals.He likes to play by himself,arranging his toys in line, and lie on the floor.he is hyperactive and jumps and flaps his hands when excited.he loves bread,pizza and milk.He insist on feeding himself with his fingers.
    He was born via Ceasarean section due to fetal distress caused by the cord round the neck.He was fully vaccinated and started showing classic autism symptoms after the Mmr vaccine at 15months.He stopped talking at this time.
    we have used homeopathy previously with some improvements and we need someone to guide us through the remaining recovery process.Please help.

    Hi Alan,

    My daughter is 4 years old and she is on autistic spectrum. she is very calm and content. she is non-verbal and her eye contact, attention to the people is very less. she shown her autistic symptoms like spinning, flapping, arranging toys in a line after the MMR vaccination. But these behaviors have been stopped but still she is non-verbal. I heard from people that homeopathy treatment are working and i wanted to try for my daughter as well. Please help.

      Hi Dana

      Kind regards

    Hello Alan,
    My son just turned 4. He started to show autistic symptoms when he was 2. He was born naturally, but I was given antibiotics for Strep bacteria. My son was colicky right from the start, had a cradle cap, rashes all over his body, reflux. His good flora was killed at the very beginning of his life. At the top of that he was fully vaccinated. After his last vaccines, he got coxackie virus at preschool, and right after that he regressed dramatically. We have been using homeopathy to reverse the damage, and see nice progress, but my son is still struggles with irritability, OCD, spinning. His speech and comprehension improved though ( homeopathy is really working for him!). We hit the point where he is not improving at all any more. He also struggles with low muscle tone, balance, mito dysfunction. I cannot wait to talk with you,
    Thank you! Anna

    Hi Alan,
    My daughter was born fine and received all vaccinations until 6 mths and then she had some kind of reaction–she swelled and started vomiting after every bottle, her bowels became loose, and she cried a lot. We tried everything and finally found that adding yogurt to her bottle helped her belly problems (and discontinuing vaccines). At 10 months she became congested and we took her off of formula, but it was too late, she could not walk and lost her hearing for a few months and wound up needing ear tubes at 14 months. She only ate some cheese after that but was consistently constipated. At 5 years she became completely dairy intolerant after daycare made her drink milk–broke out in rash on hands, bumps on cheeks and terrible behavior problems. Over the past two years, I have removed dairy, chocolate, any type of fast food, and red dye from her diet. This year I had to pull her from school because she was in trouble all of the time. She was miserable. I had her tested by a psychologist and she is 18/18 on the ADHD spectrum. She is responding well to Aryuvedic meds for her home study, but she is still unable to really slow down and especially to enjoy other children–she tries to script everyone’s activity. She seems to suffer from nerves on top of it all and her motivation is terrible. Any suggestions for additional supplementation would be so greatly appreciated–she is a brilliant child and I really want her to be happy!
    Sincerely, Katherine

      Hello Catherine

      Thank you for sharing your daughter’s story with me. Rather than suggest ‘additional supplementation’, I would suggest that you start her on homeopathic treatment to address the root causes of her issues. Her guts are obviously inflamed, giving her something like Molkosan to try and reduce this inflammation until the causes are addressed may be very helpful. If you would like a chat on Skype, let me know your timezone & I will schedule you in. Good luck with healing your child.
      Kind regards

    Dear Alan,

    We are living in Hungary, and my son is almost three years of age. He is autistic. He has some autistic spectrum disorders, and I would like to healing him with homeophaty.
    I started a clearing programme myself with thuja-silicea-cal.carb.-sulphur (maybe nux v.)and stramonium for the childhood fears. After I think maybe tuberculinum and carc. can be helpfull because my mother had tbc and lot of family members had cancer. Now we are at the silicea stage. He responds very well to homeophaty. Is there any possibilities that you can offer some healing line for us we can pay for it with bank card or paypal or any kind. How can it work?

    Thanks and best regards:

    Hi Alan,
    I have a 3 year old who has not started talking yet, is quite hyper active and we have gotten nowhere with speech and language therapy. We did show him to a paediatrician who specialises in kids with autism and she said his play was not as developed as a three year olds should be and that he is probably one the spectrum. We are still waiting for the nhs to do their panel check up. I was searching for cures for autism and came across your website.
    If you could email me back,I’d like to know exactly how you treat children who are on the spectrum and what your fee is, I would be grateful.
    Best regards,
    A hussain
