Our Happy Clients
I developed alopecia areata - two bald patches. Went, initially, to my doctor, who prescribed a mild cortisone cream. Now, I do not like cortisone, so decided to seek homeopathic help -
Janine went through my medical history and asked other questions about my lifestyle, coming up with a base reason for what is regarded as an auto-immune condition, often caused by stress. My stress trigger had been a difficult 18 months over a year previously, which she said had come back to bite me, even though I thought I had coped fine.
The result of her treatment...a full head of hair again, albeit the new growth is a bit darker than the rest of it although I gather that will sort itself out in time.
I have always believed in homeopathy - my doctors in the UK where I grew up practiced homeopathy as well as allopathic, so I have been very familiar with the modality and Janine's care and skill merely confirmed to me that there are routes to wellness other than drugs, which can often create more problems than they necessarily solve!
I brought my daughter, aged 10, to see Rebecca after a referral from our counsellor. My daughter has experienced severe anger episodes, which are frightening for the whole family. She can hit her sisters, slam doors and run away from home if really in a state. She is so easily offended and jealous. Often, she has me in tears and even her dad. She is extremely defiant. I was often in despair at how she would be into her teens. Whilst the counsellor offered coping strategies, after a year we felt we needed more as her behaviour was worsening. Homeopathic remedies have really changed our daughter. After the first remedies her anger and severe behavioural issues lessened off dramatically, and the whole family calmed down. We continued with Rebecca and progressed to a new remedy, which resulted in a different child. She is now much more relaxed, able to share with her sisters and actually is pleasant to be around. Homeopathy is a process, and we will be sticking with Rebecca for our daughters continued health care!
My son came to see Rebecca as a baby for eczema but at 3 yrs old, I was starting to have some further concerns about him. His speech was quite delayed and he was hard to understand. I often had to translate what he said for others. His kindy teachers had suggested speech therapy. He had his adenoids removed when he was about 1 ½ as his nose was always obstructed and he mouth breathed. This surgery made no difference. He also constantly dribbled saliva, making his chin sore. He was also getting angry and frustrated at kindy. I had started to think back to his birth. He was born with the cord around his neck and was a “blue” baby. I was worried he had experienced oxygen deprivation at birth, which may have affected his development now. Rebecca took all this into account and prescribed a remedy. Three weeks later, his speech was already more clear. The saliva lessened and he is happier at kindy. Less angry outbursts. Two months later, the kindy, other family members and friends have all noticed a big change in his speech. The kindy are surprised and say he no longer needs speech therapy. His tongue seems different too. Its no longer constantly protruding from his mouth and he seems more able to breathe through his nose.
Janine has a knack of hearing exactly what you’re saying, even when you don’t know it yourself. She makes you feel at relaxed and supported. Janine has resolved a variety of health, skin and hormonal issues in our family and helped my children manage whooping cough and other childhood issues with ease.
I have been seeing Annette Kampen since the end of April 2019 with various symptoms. I have had excellent results and my treatment continues. Annette is extremely knowledgeable and available for advice and help quickly.
I have also had Annette treat my son who has some learning and attention difficulties and fears around some things. Annette was able to make almost immediate changes with him.
I have suffered from Chronic Fatigue for 18 months and have tried many different medical medications and natural therapies. Since coming to Annette over the last 6 months I have had a slow and steady improvement in my energy, regular bowel movements, happiness, not being so cold all the time, muscle soreness is much less, sleeping soundly through the night, not so noise and smell sensitive. I have just completed a 3 day hike that I would not have been able to do 6 months ago and have started working again and lifting a few weights. Annette makes an in-depth study of your whole health history and then provides a ‘magic potion’ that best suits your situation. I recommend adding her therapy to help your recovery from Chronic Fatigue.
Before seeing Janine in September 2018 I had been battling with terrible eczema for the past 2 years. I had tried everything from all different types of topical cream to extreme diet changes and juice fasting. It got to the point where it was unbearable. Both full hands and arms were covered in eczema that was burning and had me in excruciating pain. It had even started to creep up to my neck. After seeing Janine my symptoms started to subside almost immediately! My skin now 6 months later is almost completely clear and thanks to the remedies I am now able to eat more foods that before were leaving me with nasty reactions. I would highly recommend homeopathy for skin problems. Janine is wonderful!
I want to tell you about the excellent service I received from Auckland Homeopathy last week. My daughter, aged 2, had a fever and red rash on her face and thighs and a sore mouth, she would not drink her bottle and I was really worried about her. She was grizzly and very unwell, restless, tossing and turning. I am a long term patient of Rebecca's so I messaged her at about 10pm. The symptoms had come on quite suddenly and I would not normally message so late. Rebecca responded straight away and asked some questions. She prescribed Aconite at about 11pm. My daughter fell asleep. She awoke again in the night and I repeated the Aconite. By morning the rash had disappeared and she was back to normal! Very grateful.
After three years of constant bronchitis, pneumonia with a severe cough and many doses of antibiotics and medicines, I came to see Rebecca. After the first remedy, I improved but it was the second remedy that really made a difference. With a month my chest was 60-70% better, i was able to sleep again properly without coughing and my energy started to come back. After 2 months, I was 90% improved and just left with some residual irritation in my nose. After my third remedy, this completely disappeared and I am now back to my normal self. I had experienced the death of my mother 3 years before, and Rebecca helped me realise how much this grief affected me. The remedies really shifted my whole level of health and wellbeing.
I have been seeing Annette for over a year now and I am absolutely amazed at the results homeopathy can have. I have had anxiety for most of my life and have tried many different therapies. After Annette had worked with me through the smaller but life-impacting health issues (such as night sweats, persistent cough, lethargy, fungal infections, among other things) I went on to find a real shift in my body from feeling anxious and on edge a lot of the time, to feeling calm and centred, and this had such a positive impact on my sleep, my energy and my mood. Annette is very experienced and you know that you are in good hands with her, as she is a warm and caring person as well. I will say that you need to persevere with the treatment in order to get the best results, because it is really changing your system from the inside out, rather than slapping a bandaid on like we do in western medicine. The long term results are really worth it and I can't recommend Annette highly enough to anyone who wants to improve their health with this well-proven and highly effective therapy.
Annette, just wanted to say a huge "thank you" for treating the plantar veruccas on my son's feet (largest approx 50 x 30mm). The results are outstanding, and he is one happy lad. He is incredibly grateful to you in how you have helped him! The big wart near his knee is also totally gone.
Janine has made such a difference with my children. She has a wonderful way of asking questions and collecting information and her recommendations have really helped.
I can’t speak highly enough of Janine. I took my 4 month old to see Janine about digestive trouble. She was very inquisitive and attentive and gave us both great advice and a remedy that worked within 3 days. She is easy to contact and always willing to give you advice as your situation changes which is perfect with a wee one. Rather than using pharmaceutical products in babies, homeopathy is an effective, personalised treatment that really works.
Janine has been the family homeopath for the last 15 years. She has helped our family in numerous situations all these years. She has helped with skin conditions, emotional issues, immunity problems, and the common issues related with children, specially with my daughter's asthma. I am a strong believer of homeopathy and Janine is very good at what she is doing. She is attentive, thorough, empathic and kind. I would really recommend her for anyone looking for alternative treatment in the homeopathic field.
I started seeing Janine Gawn in November 2017 for some hormonal imbalances that I've suffered from for over eight years.
Since seeing Janine:
- My Depression and Anxiety episodes have drastically reduced, to almost non-existant.
- My weight managment issues have become a lot easier to control
- I feel less prone to stress episodes
- My worst allergy symptoms have reduced to barely an irritation
- My anemia has also completely disappeared over the course of seeing Janine.
All in all, I would highly reccomend booking a session with Janine, she really knows what she is doing and Janine is a sweet, calm, inviting person to be around and to talk to.
I took my 8 year old son to see Annette for a few reasons. These included being afraid of spiders and zombies he would not go into rooms of our house before I checked and now he does not mention them at all. He also took along time to go to sleep at night due to a vivid imagination. I would highly recommend seeing Annette to help with children’s phobias.
I found Janine very helpful. I wanted to get through my aggressive early onset morning sickness without 'drugs'. Her constitutional remedy choice was spot on. She was also a nice, supportive person to work with. I'll be back but hopefully not too soon;-)
I've suffered from eczema and hay fever on and off all my life. Over the years I've also damaged my back, ankles, and pelvis which left me in chronic pain; not to mention the aching shoulders caused by working. After seeing so many health professionals and being told over and over that I should use steroids/pain killers/was imagining things/should expect this because I am getting old, my attitude was despairing. Over the months I've been working with Annette, I have used several different remedies which have each improved an aspect of my dysfunction, so I started feeling more at ease almost straight away. Now the remedy I use has done such a great job that I am sailing through this pollen season hardly noticing it! No itching eyes or skin, no sneezing and my sleep is no longer disturbed by pain. I feel that Annette is treating me as a unique individual and I feel very positive that my relief is proving to be deep-seated and long-lasting.
I was about to consider surgery but decided to seek alternative help. Over a 5 month period through using homeopathy I have solved my issue with only one treatment but 4 months of measuring results. Absolutely relieved to sort the original health issue through a natural process. Plus the bonus of learning more about myself. Great working with Annette. Thank you.
My newborn son was extremely spilly. His uncomplicated reflux was happening so often that I would prefer to keep him at home, as I had him in cotton wraps so he could be changed frequently without the fuss of clothing. He is an otherwise healthy baby so I did not find much support from his GP on this issue. A friend recommended I contact SAHomeopathy. I was seen by Janine and Annette. Their friendly, professional approach was a relief in itself and I felt confident to try homeopathy, for the first time, to help my son. After using remedies over a two month period, the reduction of his spilling allowed us the freedom to enjoy less of the mess and more of the cuddles. During treatment I felt well supported and I appreciated the ease of contact. Janine and Annette had every quality you could want in a health professional and I would not hesitate to recommend SAHomeopathy to others.
I had varieties of health problems, arthritis, pain in my shoulders due to fall, anger problems, when I went to Janine, she gave me remedies that help me with most of my health issues and what's more, I quit smoking as well without using any nicotine or patches. I was just stop smoking as if I didn't like it before. My energy levels is increasing and I'm more mobilising. Thanks to Janine
I was worried about my cough since last two months. But when I took homeopathy it was a great relief in 2 days. Superb job from Janine and Annette at Takanini clinic
It is such a good experience talking with these ladies. The things they give for us to use for my hay fever really helps!!
Thanks ladies for your help ????
I came to see Rebecca in 2016 initially for my acne. I was sick of being sick and wanted to explore other avenues besides going to the g.p. I knew the acne was from underlying issues causing the pimples. My skin has improved over the course of my engagements. I see Janine and Rebecca for many health issues such as colds, skin infections, pregnancy and labour, mouth losers, eczema, asthma, restlessness and many other things. They are awesome individuals, friendly and help you on the road to a healthy lifestyle.
I first came to see Janine for ongoing colds which she helped me with greatly and now its my go to remedy if I get one of those streaming colds!
I was also going through a series of dental surgeries, Janine suggested I take hypericum as well as arnica after each surgery. This greatly reduced my recovery time, compared to earlier dental experiences, for which I am eternally grateful Janine
I first came to Rebecca because I started feeling depressed. The Doctors wanted me to take anti-depressants but I had been down this path before and really didn't want to again. My husband noticed very quickly that even within a week. I have stayed well for two years with homeopathy now and I am really pleased. My children have also benefited from homeopathy- for their teething, snotty noses, fevers and coughs
My daughter was suffering from depression and insomnia. The homeopathy Janine and Rebecca prescribed was so helpful in helping her through a very difficult part of her life. I found both Janine and Rebecca extremely professional, thorough and caring. I was really impressed by how much my teenage daughter opened up to them
I have experienced some really amazing healing after receiving homeopathic remedies from Annette Kampen. I have been treated for physical symptoms (facial neuralgia) where I made a complete recovery and also for deep long term emotional issues where I have felt positive life-changing shifts in my emotional and mental well being. I’ve had excellent outcomes for my children that have experienced various forms of anxiety and its been exceedingly comforting to know that the remedies are non invasive, non harmful with no side effects. For those reasons homeopathy is always my first treatment option.
I have used homeopathy for myself and two children for the past 35 years. Both of my children are in their 30's and have never had an antibiotic. They have had the usual childhood illnesses - chickenpox, measles, mumps - but thanks to Annette's skill and remedies they have fared better than other children. Now they are adults they both have strong immune systems and don't seem to even catch a cold. I can only put this down to the use of homeopathy.
I have also had great success, with Annette's help, at combating illness. While I have never had any serious health problems, I am convinced that at nearly 70 years of age and on no medication whatsoever I can only put this down to the body healing itself through homeopathy rather than taking medication prescribed by a doctor.
I would give Annette Kampen my highest recommendation as an excellent, accurate, sympathetic, and highly experienced Homeopath.
I had been suffering from Chronic Fatigue for five years when I first met Annette. During those five years I had seen two experienced homeopaths in the UK, with many consultations but no lasting change.
I had persisted with Homeopathy all that time because I instinctively felt that it would be able to cure me, if only I was given the right remedy.
Finally I consulted with Annette. And her treatment showed me that my belief in Homeopathy was justified. Because the very first remedy she gave me produced a rapid and permanent cure!
One happy and grateful patient
I first saw Rebecca in may 2014 for terrible migraines. I also suffered other headaches almost every day for 3 years. I was taking tramadol as my migraines were so severe and incapacitating. My response to homeopathy was amazeballs! I never had another migraine after cactus 200c and had one or two more mild headaches then none! Since then I have used homeopathy occasionally for hormonal issues and during my second pregnancy.
Thanks Janine, his eczema is so much better. Everyone keeps saying how good his skin is looking. He is a lot happier, even with teething he is sleeping through now. Everyone has commented on how happy he is now.
I am not coughing anymore just a little bit sometime in evening or early morning wonderful, I can’t believe it! I had been coughing for a month. How grateful I am, thank you Janine! The remedy did wonders. Energy levels much better now too. I am very happy. I am telling everybody about you.
My 3 grandkids all had school sores that we couldn't get rid of. Rebecca gave them all homeopathic remedies and they all cleared up. My daughter was very happy!
I started coming for treatment for anxiety and depression in Oct 2014. I had used homoeopathy many years ago for my children but not for myself. I noticed a gradual improvement over 4-6 weeks. I felt more positive and had more energy. I felt motivated to do some things I had just been putting off.
I feel more comfortable with people again, and have started seeing friends more. My hormones have also settled down, which is a real bonus. After 3 months I feel much different and I now have a job! I can highly recommend Homeopathy and Rebecca and Janine! It’s such a gentle and supportive system.
I first saw Rebecca for a terrible ear infection. The pain was terrible and I could hardly hear. As soon as I took hepar sulph 200 I felt some popping in my ear and the ear started to unblock. Within an hour the pain started to reduce and I could hear properly. Over the next year I had ear problems a few times but the homeopathic remedies always helped.
I brought all my 3 kids to Rebecca. They had recurrent coughs. All did really well and also other issues such as poor appetite and sleep problems were also resolved. I highly recommend homeopathy as I now use it as my primary health care.
I received homoeopathic treatment at Manurewa Marae back in February 2014 for a nasty eczema on my hands and fingers. It was really itchy and painful and often I had deep cracks in my fingers. I had been suffering for a couple of years with it. After my homoeopathic medicine, I experienced a dramatic improvement within about 3 weeks, and within 2 months my hands were completely better. I have not had the problems return and I am delighted with my treatment.
