Dr. Alexandra Melo
Practicing Classical Homeopath
I practice classical homeopathy and provide counselling in holistic treatments and nutrition. With a passion for health and science, I initiated my academic path in the fields of food & nutrition culminating with a PhD in applied microbiology from Kings College London.
Raised two children and supported my family but my love for science never diminished. With the children in mind, soon embarked on a journey pursuing the optimal approach to health and well-being, which led me to becoming a fully trained homeopath. I have found this holistic approach to be most complete, bringing real and lasting health benefits as it focuses on the cause of disease, rather than just the superficial removal or suppression of symptoms. As a scientist and a practitioner of the healing art of homeopathy, I have focused on a system of therapy that has been a blessing to my family, patients and me.t me
As a homeopath, my ultimate goal is to help you live to your fullest capacity, where the entire spiritual, mental, emotional, social and physical being is restored to the natural state it was created in. From the times of Hippocrates (considered father to modern medicine) the human being was recognised as a trinity of body, mind and spirit, with the last being perhaps the most important part.”
“Man consists in what he thinks and what he loves, and there is nothing else in man (Dr James T. Kent)”.
My Special Interest
Since I was a child, I always loved children and animals (particularly horses and dogs).
Children’s health is one of the most concerning aspects of parenthood. Although homeopathy works well in variety of diseases, it has special affinity for childhood problems. Below are some unique benefits of homeopathy in addressing common childhood problems:
- Promotes a natural healthy state
- Supports, rebalances and detoxes the system
- Complements other therapies in a noticeable way
- Children just love it
- Can be easily used at home to address minor illnesses
All higher forms of animal’s life are capable of producing symptoms of a disease and are thus receptive to homeopathic medicine.
Clearly, there are many animal lovers all over the world who like to think for themselves and, when it comes to illness, prefer a form of treatment that involves no synthetic chemicals, has no side effects and does no harm.
Homeopathy is an active form of medicine. It reinforces the body’s own healing powers and does not suppress them in a way antibiotics and cortisone do. If correctly applied, it sets off natural healing regulatory processes in the organism that can overcome disease. Its action is therefore rapid, safe and sure.
Animals are loving, loyal and dutiful children of Nature. It came as no surprise, whilst living in Greece and getting involved with many rescue operations. It is remarkable how these creatures responded to homeopathic system of medicine. Skeptics often use the argument that homeopathy works because of placebo effect “it is all in the mind of the patient”. Interestingly it is hard to apply the same argument, when research shows that 80% of animals get better or recover totally, after using homeopathic medicine.
She was amazing. Cannot speak night enough for her. She was this thorough, helpful, professional and caring. It was stress free. Got the help I needed. Would definitely be coming back. In fact probably today… for myself as I am Feeling sick. Thank you guys! Amazing service!

Alex has been our family doctor for years .. helping every member of the family with little problems here or there… Problems that otherwise would have only been solved only by taking doses of antibiotics: from ear infections to infected especially well) or urinary track inflammations to sinusitis.. and many more .. wasp bites (I remember that painful experience). Mainly she worked miracles by following my youngest daughter that from an early age was diagnosed with allergies and condemned to a life of cortisone and antihistamine but under Alex’s supervision all was solved by some constant intake of ” little white pills “… a so much more healthy solution to her reoccurring problem.

Alex has successfully treated both myself and my three-year daughter, Jess, many times. I feel particularly grateful and eternally indebted to Alex, with respect to treatment my daughter. As with any child at this young age, Jess has had numerous sniffles, colds, flu’s etc and contracted ear infections, etc. I believe Alex has saved me from the doctor’s office many times and particularly from having to use prescriptive drugs (such as anti-biotics) as well as over the counter medicines (like calpol/ibuprofen, with the latter having a particularly harsh impact on a child’s liver). The degree of detail Alex went into to identify the correct remedy combined with the high-level of follow-up was impressive. I felt, Alex really cared about both the patient and the outcome and I now know Alex is wholly dedicated to both her profession and her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any of my friends.

I have contacted Alex during a trip to London (March 2016) as I had great recommendations for her skills both to humans and to pets. Soon after our first meeting one of my dogs had a serious spine issue on the cervical area and she could hardly walk. Alex had been on top of her and within the first two days my dog had a huge improvement and although she was restricted and not allowed to dog walks she very soon capable to walk again and she is still doing fine. Have numerous examples from my pets that Alex has totally helped them and I cannot stop thanking her not only for treating my pets successfully but also for being committed to explain the details to me so I understand what is happening. Equally November 2016 I had with no obvious reason a hip inflammation and started seriously limping and being in pain. I was in London, very busy and impatient to go on with my life. I will never forget how she took out of her pocket the medicine gave it to me and sent me back home telling me if to take it easy and talk again next morning. Within two hours the medicine started acting and next morning I was totally back to normal.

When starting a therapy with Dr Alex as a Homeopath it is like engaging yourself on a long journey. What differentiate her from any other Homeopath is her true passion for her discipline, her knowledge in Science that is limitless and her profound desire to find the remedy that will not only treat the ailment you consulted in first place but also a multitude of symptoms that you had learned to live with along the years and that will be leaving you as you embrace the cure. What makes her such a dedicated Doctor is the way she is dealing with Time. Time is actually her best Ally. In fact, she will not only take the time to listen to you and your ailments, she will take the time knowing you in depth and read through your thoughts as you will reveal your own story according to your condition and this is where her long experience in the domain together with her natural psychological aptitude will take place and play little miracle. She will try to read in between the lines and really understand – even after one session – who you are and what you will need to find the path to complete recovery. The way she grasps the subtle connection between body and mind as well as her long experience in the nutrition field will also be additional assets to her thorough practice. Her positive and persuasive attitude are of course also helping in the process. And she will never let her patients down until the right treatment is found. She has the keys to total health balance. I am a mother of four children and all of us including my husband are with Dr Alex since 2012.

Dr. Alex de Melo is my family homeopath since 2010. she has successfully supported myself, our family of 2 boys, our numerous pets and our horses. At first our relationship only covered the human members of the family. Seeing her various heroic animal rescues from impossible circumstances we had full trust in her as our family vet as well!! During 7 years of our cooperation she has successfully dealt with numerous health issues like skin problems, trauma,fatigue, colds, sprains, inflammations, immune supports etc. I strongly recommend her as a homeopath for humans as well as animals.

I am grateful to have Dr Alex De Melo in my life. She has been extremely successful in treating numerous times not only my pets but also my children and myself!
First of all, my experience in working with her was around 2010 when my horse had developed laminitis (an inflammation in the hooves, which causes excruciating pain). I had tried everything and nothing was working and within the same day of using the homeopathic remedy that Dr De Mello prescribed my horse was immediately relieved of the pain and within a couple of days she could walk again.
All the veterinarians I spoke with had warned me that once a horse gets this disease it is known to reoccur and that the quality of my horse’s life would be greatly reduced from then on. With Alex’s help, carefully monitoring my horse and giving it a homeopathic remedy. At the first signs of the disease the symptoms would disappear almost immediately!
My horse lived a pain free life until a ripe old age without contracting laminitis ever again.
Dr De Melo helped me tremendously. When I was pregnant with my second child and had severe morning sickness throughout the pregnancy. Which was exhausting. The homeopathic remedy she prescribed was reducing my symptoms and was giving me a boost of energy, which was lifesaving as I had to look after my 2 year old son also.
Dr Alex, using her in depth knowledge of homeopathy, was also able to design a very effective schedule, including nutrition for both of my kids.
Alex De Melo for me is not only a very competent homeopath, but also having her daily support in moments of crisis has been invaluable! I would recommend her to anyone without second thought.

Mela is a seven year old, Greek Horehound-New Foundling mix. She was diagnosed with liver cirrhosis at the age of nine months, probably due to over vaccination at a very early age.
We did everything the vet suggested as a treatment. Drugs, more drugs and special veterinary-ready-made-diet. Her liver continued to fail. The vet said that there’s nothing more could be done and that she was going to have a very short life. We decided to go alternative and that was when I met Alex. With her remedies and home-made-real food, the miracle happened. After a month Mela was a completely different dog. She stopped vomiting, started eating, gained weight and became a normal healthy puppy.
Today she is nine years old, although her liver never recovered 100%, it never will as by the time we met Alex there was irreversible pathology, Mela is still with us. She is enjoying a perfect dog’s life; with quality, loads of energy and being able to do what any other dog does. Alex also saved Mela twice from viper’s bite. Many times, she was there for me to help me with rescued strays that needed help and of course me! My asthma. After ten years of cortisone that did absolutely nothing, Alex and her remedies made me free and breathing again. Homeopathy introduced me to a whole new world. Last, but not least, homeopathy has saved me hundreds if not thousands of Euros throughout this last 7 years. Thank you Alex for your knowledge and support!!

I also can highly recommend Alex for treating animals too as she has helped me (apart from my family) personally with dogs, cats, tortoises, birds and even hedgehogs… She really knows what she is doing and I am very happy to always having her help at hand when I need it… with many different strange cases, as being an animal lover and a dedicated rescuer, you never know what tomorrow might bring!
