Arlene Phillips, CBE, choreographer, Strictly Come Dancing star and former dancer, celebrated homeopathy on the red carpet last night at the National Television Awards wearing a “living” dress decorated with real flowers that are all used for homeopathic remedies, including Clematis, Hydrangea and others.
Arlene is lending her support to the 4H campaign launched by eleven homeopathic charities and associations, including the School of Homeopathy. The campaign aims to raise awareness of homeopathy and the www.findahomeopath.org website.
The dress was the inspiration of award-winning florist (five consecutive RHS Gold Medals and four Best in Show awards from the RHS Chelsea Flower Show) Joseph Massie. Months of work have gone into designing and making the dress, with Massie and his team spending over 100 hours painstakingly sowing each petal onto the fabric.
On Homeopathy, Arlene commented, ‘I’ve regularly found Arnica cream to be so helpful with healing bruises and dancing related injuries!” She continued, ‘Once, when I was Germany, I had to take my daughter to a Doctor who prescribed a homeopathic remedy as opposed to penicillin and it helped enormously”
Mani Norland, Principal, School of Homeopathy said: “Arlene is an inspiration, she is full of life, enjoying herself and staying well. Clearly a holistic perspective to health and homeopathy are working well. We are delighted to have Arlene celebrate homeopathy and join the millions of others across the world that use homeopathy as part of their approach to healthcare.”
