About me

Practicing Classical Homeopath and Doctor of Microbiology. In efforts to make the practice more approachable, simple and practical, recently started this Internet based service. Through e-mail and Skype this web-based homeopathic practice that provides holistic medical care to children and adults.

Originally from Portugal, my husband and I, have raised two children living between Greece and the UK. Now practicing from London.

My love for science, as well as my interest in health, never diminished, and studied with the British Institute of Homeopathy, International from 2004 to 2009 to become a fully trained homeopath. As a fully trained homeopath I offer both online and office consultations.

Living in Greece, I became inevitably involved with the teachings of George Vithoulkas, attending for three consecutive years extensive seminars at the renowned International Academy of Classical Homeopathy on the Island of Alonisos.

Patent by MAFF (Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food) Bacterial Decontamination of Foods (N: 9526174.9)

A new procedure to treat food products was designed using a bacteriocin called nisin. Nisin is a natural substance with antibiotic like properties, produced by Lactococcus lactis ssp. lactis and approved for food use. Nisin is generally effective against most Gram-positive bacteria, but not so against most Gram-negative cells. However, it proved effective in the cases of Campylobacter, Salmonella and Pseudomonas species, economically significant food poisoning organisms of foods such as meat, fish and poultry. The new natural developed procedure increased the access of nisin to the cytoplasmic membrane of bacteria, especially Gram-negative, thus promoting cell death.
