Like a Link Yourself?
I prefer genuine reciprocal links, local contacts, personal recommendations. I get a lot of requests, I do not automatically accept but I do consider everything. Email me.
As anyone with a website knows, links sometimes go out of date or just 'rot' - disappear. The internet is constantly changing. Internet hijacking also occurs. Please let me know of any problems, and if necessary, I will remove the problem link.
I use a free link-checker to keep up with broken links on this site: Xenu Link Sleuth.

This is the UK’s largest professional homeopaths organisation, established in 1978. I am registered with the Society. The Society of Homeopaths can help you find a registered homeopath in your area; they also list and monitor recognised homeopathic colleges.
www.a-r-h.org/contact.htm. ARH, established 2001, maintain a separate register.
See note below about registers.
NOTE ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC REGISTERS
There are moves to set up a single, unified register of UK homeopaths, which may help the public. Several times this process has been derailed. And there are some groups trying to subvert this process, setting up registers which appear inclusive, but are not. Some professional associations may also change, or cease to operate. If in doubt, I recommend you contact the Society of Homeopaths for an unbiased view of whether any register can be trusted. Over and above that, always check your practitioner's credentials and insurance, and make sure it is someone you like, and can trust.
The following are all excellent suppliers of homeopathic remedies. All will send out bottles of remedies, or individual prescriptions, within the UK or outside. My own preference is Helios Pharmacy, who make many remedies by hand.
HSC provides screw cap bottles, dropper bottles, glass bottles, storage systems, books, posters, water filters, Barefoot Botanicals and more. I get all my bottles and packets for dispensing remedies here. HSC provide excellent and very rapid service even for small quantities. www.homeopathicsupply.com
