Julia Alabaster has been a homeopath in Whangarei since 1998 . She is a Classical Homeopath with experience in treating many conditions, she also taught homeopathy for many years.

She says "Homeopathy is an elegant and effective healing methodology that deserves to be better known and respected." She has training in other therapies but it is with homeopathic treatment that she has seen the most dramatic healing.

The actual technique of homeopathy involves the the taking of pillules or drops of highly diluted remedies.  The scientific understanding of water having a liquid crystal structure and being able to carry information is proving what homeopaths have shown through experience.

Julia has trained to be able to treat both humans and animals and would love to welcome new patients.  I am currently practicing in the old Public Trust building, Room 4, 69 Bank St, Whangarei.      Please call me on 4344066 or 0211404649 to make an appointment.  I am also available for Skype consultations and currently have a special price. Email me on julia.alabaster at gmail.com to make a time.


About homeopathy

Homeopathy is a simple and profound medicinal art based on two centuries of experience and proven to be effective by millions of people around the world today.
It is a rational, natural and effective way of stimulating the body to heal itself for all stages of life from birth, childhood, adolescence, pregnancy, middle age to the more senior years. It recognises that all symptoms, physical, mental or emotional are expressions of  an imbalanced state within that person.


I am clear, however, that whilst homeopathy is a wonderful system of medicine, it cannot help everyone, all the time. No system of medicine can reasonably claim that and I own its limitations and where appropriate and necessary, I will refer patients to an alternative practitioner or their doctor.

Homeopathy is a system of medicine that was discovered by Dr Samuel Hahnemann in 1796 and has been used all over the world ever since.

Homeopathic medicine triggers the body’s natural immune system to return to health. It is based on a principle of ‘like cures like'. Put simply,  the symptoms of the individual will be healed by a remedy  made of a natural substance that can cause  those symptoms in a healthy person.  This means that homeopathy is a highly individual form of medicine as most people experience slightly different symptoms with the same ‘named’ disease. 

For example, imagine two children suffering from a common cold. Their symptoms may differ, whilst both having the same named condition. The first may be experiencing a runny sore nose, headache , no thirst and a desire to be in bed with his/her parent at his bedside. The second child may have a blocked up nose, an increased thirst and a desire to be outside in the fresh air. Both children have a ‘common cold’ but their homeopathic prescriptions would be different because they are experiencing their symptoms differently. Homeopathic medicine treats the whole person, not simply the disease.

Homeopathic remedies stimulate the body to heal itself, physically and emotionally in a gentle highly effective manner. As a general rule, the more long standing the problem, the more long term the treatment and it is often said that in order to heal on a deep level, the body will often return to an old symptom in order to cure. This in homeopathic terms, is called the direction of cure.

For example if a patient suffered from eczema when they were young and now presented with asthma, during their homeopathic treatment they may find their asthma is considerably better while their eczema returns during the healing process for a short while.

Much of what is written about homeopathy in journals, websites and newspapers is negative and disparaging and most of the people who write these articles know very little about homeopathy. Much of what is written, therefore, is not true. 

Almost any condition that you would take to your GP could benefit from the homeopathic approach as millions of people around the world will testify today. 

Homeopathy is free from toxins and complicated side effects and therefore a wonderful (and smart) choice for children and babies. Homeopathy is the most sophisticated medical treatment available today and the World Health Organisation has said it is now the most popular alternative to conventional drugs worldwide.
