Homeopathy Awareness Week 2019
This Homeopathy Awareness Week (April 10-16th) 4Homeopathy is working to raise awareness of the benefits of homeopathy and encouraging people to try it for themselves.
The “Cost of Health” survey
You may have seen media reports of our specially commissioned poll, the “Cost of Health” which explores how much UK adults spend on staying healthy and their attitudes to fitness and wellbeing. You can read the full results here at www.FindAHomeopath.org
The “Cost of Health” poll shows that 42% of people in the UK would consider using homeopathy. Telling our own homeopathy success stories is a great way to encourage them to do so. Please spread the word this Homeopathy Awareness Week by sharing your experience of homeopathy via social media using the hashtag #TryHomeopathy

The “Cost of Health” Survey
Read the results and then take part in our own survey to see how you compare
A new survey commissioned by 4Homeopathy especially for Homeopathy Awareness Week 2019 found that the average Brit will spend more than £65,000 over their lifetime just looking after their basic health.
A poll of 2,000 adults found Brits spend an average of £1,091.26 each year on gym memberships, vitamins and supplements, prescriptions, exercise classes and healthy foods.
And over the course of a 60.3 year average adult lifespan, that adds up to a staggering £65,802.98
The average Brit spends an average of £113.46 each year on gym memberships, another £123.60 on vitamins and supplements, and an extra £66 on protein powders.
They’ll also spend £28.98 a year on new exercise gear, clothing and equipment to help with their workouts.
And those who use alternative medicines and therapies will spend £31.98 a year on the treatments.
“There are so many ways you can dedicate funds to improve your health and wellbeing, and we are encouraged by the results of the study which indicate many Brits would be open to alternative therapies in the future.
“We know that many people – with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle being the latest high-profile examples – are already enjoying or exploring the positive health benefits of complementary and alternative medicines.”
The survey, conducted by OnePoll.com, also explored attitudes to healthcare and wellness.
Seven in 10 Brits think about the state of their health on a regular basis, with the average adult visiting the doctor three times a year.
Men are more likely to spend money on vitamins, protein powders and exercise supplements to stay healthy, while women prioritise their spend on healthy foods.
However, 12 per cent are already currently suffering with a medical condition that causes them significant expense to treat.
But only 14 per cent of adults surveyed in
the study currently have a savings account reserved specifically in case of emergency.
Londoners are most likely to fret about the state of their health, while those living in the North West are the most relaxed about their physical wellbeing.
Residents of Oxford are most likely to rate their general health as excellent, while those living in Cambridge are most likely to rate their health poorly.
“This Homeopathy Awareness Week we would encourage Brits to explore other alternative avenues of healthcare especially if traditional routes are causing anxiety or are proving ineffective”.

Make a movie
Take a selfie
Share your homeopathy story
Homeopathy Awareness Week (HAW) 2019
Last year we encouraged you to share your homeopathy story by making your own movie and spreading the word. This year, we’re making it even simpler!
For HAW 2018 we asked you to make a short video about your experience of homeopathy. Videos are currently the most frequently seen and shared medium on social media, and short videos (30 seconds to 2 minutes) are popular.
For HAW 2019 why not take a selfie and add the hashtag #TryHomeopathy.
Thousands of people have benefitted from homeopathy, and thousands more of us know of someone else who has benefitted, or someone who has a pet that has benefitted!
We want to help inspire new patients and let people know about the benefits of natural health and homeopathy.
Take a selfie, or if you wanted to but didn’t get chance last year, film yourself talking about how homeopathy helped you, then share and/or send the selfie or movie to us to share on the Homeopathy Worked for Me page: www.facebook.com/HoWFMe/.
How to create a selfie:
Remember, it doesn’t have to be professional. People like to see real people, so just point your smart phone and snap! It’s as simple as that. #TryHomeopathy
How to create a video:
Use the video camera setting on a smart phone or camera and press record – it’s as easy as that. You may want a question to answer (see below) or just to start talking about your experience of homeopathy when you’re filming. You can get a friend to help film you or simply use the front facing camera on your phone – like you do when you take a selfie.
Messages could be:
– How homeopathy has helped you or a client, friend or family member
– What you’d say to a friend about homeopathy
– If homeopathy has reduced your dependence on medication/improved your quality of life and how
– End with ‘homeopathy works for me’
– Film in landscape setting, not portrait
– Make sure the lighting is sufficient (you may need to turn lights on) and are clearly seen
i.e. don’t film with a window behind you
– Look at the framing, try to get head and shoulders in shot
– Look at what is behind you, film against a back drop that looks good
– Keep it short, start with a smile
– Usually the first go is the most natural and best
– Make sure there are no other noises and speak clearly but naturally
– Hold your hand steady or support your hand on a flat surface (or use a tripod if you have one)
Sending your selfie or video
– Make sure you are on wi-fi and connected to the internet
– Click on the selfie or movie and then click the ‘share’ icon
– You will see various options e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Email etc
– Upload the video to your social media channels
– Send it to us to share on the Homeopathy Worked for Me Facebook page and website for the HAW2019 selfie campaign – message to www.facebook.com/HoWFMe/
– If it’s a minute or less, you can share on Instagram if you’ve an account there. Tag us @TryHomeopathy
Happy selfie-taking and film-making – we look forward to seeing and hearing your homeopathy story!
