Celeb fans of natural health and homeopathic remedies have teamed up to show off their favourite homeopathic remedies in their natural form - painted as art on their bodies.

The stars have joined a campaign to raise awareness of homeopathy and promote the health benefits they've experienced using this type of treatment for their health and wellbeing.

TV presenter Stacey Dooley is a big fan, using homeopathic remedies to calm her nerves. And also swears by atural remedies to beat the flu (that and turnips, eh?).

"It might seem odd that I choose to do a job which involves a lot of long haul flights when I’m a very nervous flyer," Stacey said. "I first discovered homeopathy when a friend suggested trying it to overcome my phobia of flying and I haven’t looked back since – it really has worked!

"As part of the Homeopathy Works For Me campaign, I had Gelsemium painted onto me – this is a fantastic remedy that helps to ease anticipatory anxiety or nervousness, and it’s also a really good remedy for flu."

British singer and DJ Janey Lee Grace added that homeopathy can work wonders for many female-specific health concerns.

"I’m passionate about 100 per cent natural health and wellbeing, and believe that it’s so valuable for people to take responsibility for their health, and to try a natural approach," she explained.  "I was first introduced to homeopathy 15 years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. I gave birth in a fabulous hospital where the midwives prescribed homeopathy during labour.

"Later I used homeopaths to sort all manner of the kids’ illnesses. For the campaign, I’ve had diamonds (Adamas) painted onto my neck – the remedy is used by homeopaths to treat severe depression, and also can help women in the menopause.

British Homeopathic Association Chief Executive, Cristal Sumner said of the campaign: "We are so pleased to have such strong, beautiful women endorsing our campaign and talking about their own experiences with homeopathy.

"Their experiences mirror the hundreds of thousands of people in the UK who use homeopathy and see a homeopath. Our stars provide a snapshot of the patient experience, which overwhelmingly demonstrates that homeopathy has a lot to offer. We want to encourage others through this campaign to make homeopathy a part of their life and approach to healthcare."

Olympic athlete Louise Hazel also revealed she swears by arnica to mend bumps and bruises, while Jo Wood opts for bee products to calm skin problems.
