Registered Classical Homeopath
Hello I’m Nina.
I live with my husband and 2 children on a small holding between the beautiful South Downs and the Sussex Coast so we have the best of both worlds for walking our pack of dogs (Black Labradors Olive and Myrtle and our cheeky Wire-haired Dachshund Bertie) We also have sheep! We started about 8 years ago with 4 Ryeland ewes and now have 10. They are just like big dogs and all love a cuddle and head scratch and walkers in our fields are often amazed at how friendly they are. The are nicknamed the Teddy Bear sheep as thats exactly what they look like! They are considered a heritage Rare breed in the UK and we absolutely adore them.
In my spare time I’m usually ferrying children to various sporting events but I love to bake and enjoy designing and decorating special occasion cakes. My other passion is Dahlias! I was bitten by the Dahlia bug a few years ago when I visited an local flower farm and I now enjoy growing my own Dahlias to fill the house with home grown blooms during the season.
So how did I end up becoming a Homeopath? Well I’ve always loved science and nature and from a young age was transfixed every Sunday watching various Natural World programmes about our Planet and the stunning array of flora and fauna that we share this beautiful world with. I learnt about balance and harmony within ecosystems and how even just small changes can have a huge impact and throw a well functioning system off balance.
This love of our natural world led me to study for a BSc. (Hons) degree in Environmental Science and after my graduation I was ready to go and get a job saving the world! But it seemed fate had other plans and I ended up working within the Pharmaceutical Industry truly believing I was helping to make people feel better with the drugs I was selling.
A car accident was the turning point for me and after experiencing some truly horrendous side effects of some extremely strong painkillers (which didn’t solve the pain I was in either) I embarked on my journey into discovering the benefits of some alternative therapies. Having experienced some profound and deep healing along the way from a few different therapies, I trained as a Reiki practitioner for both people and horses.
When I fell pregnant with our first child and was unable to complete either but fate was directing me to where I needed to be and during my home birthing preparations I bought a Homeopathy kit to use during childbirth and so began my love of this beautiful, gentle, healing system of medicine.
Using Homeopathy with my children was simply wonderful. To be able to naturally support them through the usual childhood illnesses from fevers to tummy upsets and all the teething and coughs that occurred in-between without relying on our overburdened medical system really had an impact on me.
My training was everything I’d hoped for and more! I had the opportunity to take on cases in the last 2 years of my study and I was overwhelmed with the number of women coming to see me with issues relating to their menstrual cycle. Heavy and painful periods were a common theme as were debilitating Menopausal symptoms.
Working with these cases and seeing the enormous improvements that Homeopathy could make for these ladies resulted in me choosing to study this topic further for my final year dissertation. That gave me the opportunity to really increase my area of expertise and learn which Homeopathic remedies were of greatest value in helping women to regain their hormonal balance.
My aim is for my female clients to be able to live their best lives without needing to plan their diary around the impact of their Menstrual cycle. I want women to be able to feel empowered by their cycle and all it brings, not restricted and embarrassed. It simply doesn’t have to be that way.
My Special Interest
My special interest is menstrual cycle and menopausal symptoms.
“I started having homeopathy treatment with Nina Garrard back in September 2019 whilst she was finishing up her training and needed case studies. I really hadn’t considered homeopathy before.
I was having some real issues with my periods being extremely heavy and it had impacted on my quality of life and had been getting worse for some years prior. Nina discussed my past medical history and came up with remedies to try, which were very easy to take. We had a lot of contact by phone and video calls to check in with changes and updates. I was amazed as I saw results within a couple of months. My period flow had reduced substantially.
I had been referred to a gynaecologist a couple of months prior to meeting Nina who had recommended a hysterectomy. I really didn’t want to go down that route because of the impact on my work, being self employed. It would have been my last resort.
Nina continued to check in for sometime after to see how things were going and tweaked remedies as and when needed. I am so grateful that I have avoided having major surgery and would highly recommend Nina Garrard, I felt she understood my needs and was very knowledgeable.”
“I saw Nina for homeopathic treatment when I was suffering with really bad migraines every month during the menopause.
I was also having really bad nightmares, and night sweats which were affecting the quality of my sleep.
After one treatment I was sleeping much better and although still hot no where near the night sweats I was having previously.
I went 6 months without a migraine and following another treatment I have not had one since. I have also had no nightmares. This has been over 2 years now !
Nina is fantastic, she listens, she cares and the homeopathic remedies she prescribed covered way more than I thought they would.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
Thanks Nina, menopause with no drugs!
“We first reached out for Nina’s help through homeopathy when I’d had enough of my daughter taking antibiotics after antibiotics to treat recurring bladder infections. I was quite sceptical at first but needed to try something else. Nina was very thorough, going through family history on both sides. After our initial meeting Nina came up with a remedy that would not only help my daughter with her infections and her battle with bed wetting but with dry skin she’d been suffering with and her general being.
I couldn’t believe the difference after the first course, it was like a switch had been flicked from a shy, unsure, worried, at times frustrated little girl to a happy, confident, much more loving child. It was like having my daughter back. The dry skin vanished, the bladder infections and bed wetting were a thing of the past. We only needed a couple of follow up appointments to keep things on track. I couldn’t recommend Nina and her homeopathy enough and would definitely seek further help in the future.”
