Homeopathic remedies promote a person’s own natural healing processes so that the body heals itself, i.e. it works with the immune system, not against it.


Iridology is the study of the iris, or coloured part, of the eye. This structure has detailed fibres and pigmentation that reflects information about our physical and psychological makeup.

My Expertise

Spastic Colon & Leaky Gut Syndrome

Read More
IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome)/Spastic Colon/Leaky Gut Syndrome is one of more than 20 functional gastrointestinal disorders and is characterised by stomach cramps, abdominal pain and intermittent diarrhoea. The term ‘functional’ implies that the patient has symptoms related to the bowel, yet all the appropriate tests are normal. Abdominal pain is one of the functional diseases, but the pain differs from IBS.

Typically, patients with this problem would get up in the morning, feeling fine, but as the day progresses, the bloating and pain or discomfort will start and intensify.

Depression & Anxiety

Read More
Depression and anxiety can impact individuals of any age. People with depression frequently also suffer from anxiety.
Depression is the most common psychiatric disorder. It is a disabling condition that adversely affects a person’s family,
work or school life, sleeping and eating habits, and general health. Depression is typically characterized by low mood,
low self-esteem, and loss of interest or pleasure in normally enjoyable activities.

Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress, and it can serve as a prompt to deal with difficult situations. However, when
anxiety becomes excessive, it may fall under the classification of an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorder is characterized by emotional, physical, and behavioural symptoms that create an unpleasant feeling typically described as uneasiness, fear, or worry. The worry is frequently accompanied by physical symptoms, especially fatigue, headaches, muscle tension, muscle aches, difficulty swallowing, trembling, twitching, irritability, sweating, and hot flashes.

Children’s Behavioural Disorders

Read More
All young children can be naughty, defiant and impulsive from time to time, which is perfectly normal. However, some children have extremely difficult and challenging behaviours that are outside the norm for their age.
The most common disruptive behaviour disorders include Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder (CD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

These three behavioural disorders share some common symptoms, so diagnosis can be difficult and time consuming. A child or adolescent may have two disorders at the same time. Other exacerbating factors can include emotional problems, mood disorders, family difficulties and substance abuse.

The term ‘menopause’ means cessation of menstruation during the time of the climacteric. The climacteric is the transition period in a woman’s life when the ovaries stop producing eggs regularly. Production of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone declines, and menstruation decreases and eventually stops.
Menopause is also sometimes called ‘change of life’. The exact event of menopause (the permanent cessation of menstruation) can only be determined retrospectively after no menstrual periods have occurred for 12 consecutive months. The range for the age of natural menopause is approximately between 48 to 55 years old.

Stress & Adrenal Fatigue

Read More
Adrenal fatigue is a collection of signs and symptoms, known as a syndrome, that results when the adrenal glands function below the necessary level. Most commonly associated with intense or prolonged stress, it can also arise during or after acute or chronic infections, especially respiratory infections such as influenza, bronchitis or pneumonia.

As the name suggests, its paramount symptom is fatigue that is not relieved by sleep but it is not a readily identifiable entity like measles or a growth on the end of your finger. You may look and act relatively normal with adrenal fatigue and may not have any obvious signs of physical illness, yet you live with a general sense of unwellness, tiredness or “gray” feelings. People experiencing adrenal fatigue often have to use coffee, colas and other stimulants to get going in the morning and to prop themselves up during the day.

Dr. Tania Blake’s Story

I grew up in a home where homeopathy was a way of life. My uncle and grandfather were homeopaths and my family raised me on homeopathic medicines.

After completing school in 1988, I studied Somatology at Pretoria Technikon in order to learn about Reflexology and Aromatherapy (this was the only course available at the time). After completing the Somatology Diploma, I went to work for a Homeopath where I practiced Reflexology. I became frustrated and realized that I needed to study Homeopathy. Almost at the exact time I realized this, I received a synchronistic call from my uncle, Dr David Lilley, saying that he had had a dream in which it was clear that I should study Homeopathy and that he would help me financially to make this possible. Six years later, I qualified as a Homeopath with a Masters Degree in Homeopathy from Witwatersrand Technikon.
