Hi! I’m Carolyn, owner and founder of Carolyn Howgego Homeopathy. I’m so glad you’re here to join our tribe; people like you looking to take a holistic approach to restoring your health naturally using homeopathy, supported by good nutrition, herbs, detox and self-care. Welcome home!
Homeopathy first came into my life when my eldest son was diagnosed with eczema and then asthma before he was even a year old. The idea of long-term drugs just didn’t sit right with me, as they didn’t get to the root cause of the problem, they just palliated his symptoms with potential unwanted side effects. And he absolutely hated the spacer you have to use with an inhaler for a baby, covering his tiny face. If you’re a Mum who has to use one of those on your baby I hear you. One time only for me. It was too traumatic. I had to find another way.
But I wasn’t into traditional therapies then, so when I was recommended by a friend to see a homeopath I didn’t have great hopes, but went along with a rather heavy Mama’s heart – but an open mind.
That homeopath changed the course of my son’s and my life. (Shout out to you Helen – how can I ever thank you enough). The eczema and asthma were no more after just a few months, using solely homeopathic remedies that had no unpleasant side effects. Ever since, my son (now a lot older and at University) has been free from any asthma or eczema symptoms and continues to live a very full, sporty, happy, healthy life.
And so I was hooked! I started self-prescribing using a Helios kit for all my three children and myself. And it worked beautifully – colic, tummy troubles, ear and eye infections, coughs and colds, anxiety, bumps and breaks, sleep problems. Through all the everyday dramas of bringing up three, lively children, homeopathy was our constant support. Every Mama should have a kit in their house, Ainsworths also do a great one too. My eldest son – the one with asthma as a baby – has taken his own kit to University now too.
Seeing the incredibly effective, yet gentle healing that homeopathy brought to my family’s health inspired me to train as a homeopath and ushered in a complete change of career from a busy PR to a busy homeopath, and I am still totally enthralled by homeopathy.
I hold a BSc (Hons) in Homeopathy from Middlesex University and a Licentiate to Practice from the Centre for Homeopathic Education in London. I also hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Homeobotanical Therapy.
I developed a special interest in Hashimoto’s after I was diagnosed with the condition in 2014. I have never had to take Levothyroxine and remain in remission, asymptomatic with ‘normal’ thyroid results. In fact, I rarely test now and the test itself means very little to me, as I’ve come to realise that it’s how I feel that really matters. And I feel great.
I want everyone to know that Hashi’s doesn’t have to be a life sentence, nor is it something that you have to suffer from, or take drugs for, for the rest of your life. Homeopathy helped me and it can help you too.
But I don’t just see people with thyroid problems. People come to me with wide-ranging health problems: colitis, Addisons, diabetes, Parkinson’s, osteoarthritis, UTIs, high blood pressure, anxiety and depression, eczema, psoriasis, menstrual problems and allergies, to name just a few! My days are busy and varied and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Before becoming a homeopath I was a PR at the BBC for twelve years, spent mostly in BBC Sport. I remain totally passionate about sport and exercise, and love the invigorating feeling physical exercise has on my own wellbeing. I’m regularly found at Pilates (in another life I’ll be a Pilates teacher), on a spin bike, the tennis court or my road bike, in the pool or, my absolute favourite place to swim, in the sea off the Pembrokeshire coastline. Freezing but life-affirming!
And when I can’t get to do any of these, I am perfectly happy taking some deep inhalations of fresh air in a forest or a field with my Tibetan Terrier Meela (excuse for a gratuitous picture below). I’m also a trained dancer – who now just dances for fun. Dance floor no longer required, the kitchen will do perfectly well these days.

Thank you for your expertise. Having the support of homeopathy has made family life easier for us. Knowing that we are able to obtain a remedy and stop colds and illnesses developing further has been wonderful. Having a son with a serious illness means we spend most winters on tenterhooks dreading the next cold or flu virus buzzing round school, but since we started using homeopathy we have had much better winters with healthy happy kids! A lot less time sitting in Doctors’ waiting rooms. Thanks Carolyn.
