Dr Ruth Hull is an integrative health consultant & homoeopathic doctor with a special interest in working with people struggling with exhaustion, burnout, chronic fatigue, ME/CFS and insomnia. She has been working in natural health for twenty years as a therapist, lecturer and writer and has published three books – two on Anatomy, Physiology & Pathology and one on Reflexology.
I am a mother of two teenage girls and I love hiking, reading, travelling and being in nature.
I began my journey into the world of natural health in my early twenties and have never looked back. However, I’ve noticed that people seem to be getting sicker and more tired despite the ever-increasing amount of information there is available on health and wellbeing. I think it is because we stop ‘listening to our bodies’ – we ignore signs and symptoms and keep push, push, pushing.
So, over the years I have changed the way I work with people and I now leave most of the work to you – I am here to guide you and support you, but it is up to you to discover what really works for you.
I work with chronically fatigued clients from my home in Perth, Australia, and also offer online/telephonic consultations. In addition, I run regular workshops in integrative health at The Health Lounge in Perth.
Underlying all my work is a fascination with the human body and a deep belief that we were created to heal ourselves – without excess rules, regimes or medication.
What is Homoeopathy?
Homoeopathy is a gentle form of medicine that not only treats the physical condition of an individual, but also takes into consideration their mental and emotional states. Homoeopathic treatment is highly individualised and a common phrase to describe homoeopathy is that it treats the person not the disease.
In order to become a Homoeopathic Doctor one needs to either study medicine first and then study homoeopathy afterwards, or take a Master’s Degree in Homoeopathy. This is what I did. My master’s degree was a six-year full-time degree similar to medicine (in terms of science, diagnostics and clinical experience) but specialising in homoeopathy and covering phytotherapy (herbalism), flower essences, tissue/cell salts, iridology, psychology and nutrition. For my research dissertation I analysed homoeopathic remedies derived from the psychoactive plant drugs. These remedies have an affinity for the central nervous system and conditions caused by strong emotions such as anger, fear or fright.
