Ian Lindsay Wheeler (B. Pharm (Rhodes) 1981) has been a practising pharmacist for over 30 years, initiating his first business with a retail pharmacy, 14th Avenue Pharmacy in Johannesburg, South Africa. This successful business was sold in 1989 when Ian embarked on a transatlantic sailing adventure for 14 months.
In 1991, he returned to Hout Bay, Cape Town to establish Wheeler’s Pharmacy & Health Shop. Ian expanded and built this business for the next nine years. During this time, he undertook a three year classical homeopathic course with Dr Ruth Bloch, a well-renowned South African homeopath.

In June 1999, Ian sold his share of Wheelers Pharmacy and took a six month sabbatical. This time was spent studying further and refining the herbal and homeopathic remedies he had developed with good friend and mentor, Dr Rene Anderson, a Naturopath with vast experience in herbology, homeopathy and nutricology.

In January 2000, he started a new retail business, Steps to Health Pharmacy & Health Shop (in partnership with Gayle Salter) in Tokai, Cape Town where the focus this time was on natural and complimentary medicine.

In January 2002, through Ian’s daily consulting practice in the pharmacy, he saw the growing interest of his clients in a more holistic and natural method of treating illnesses but one which needed to be straightforward to use, would educate people about homeopathy and counter the incorrect perception that treating oneself with homeopathic medicine is complicated and time consuming. It also needed to be as comprehensive as possible and completely safe for the whole family including infants, the elderly and pregnant women.

It was then that Pegasus Homeopathics was founded and Ian came up with the concept of The Pegasus Bluebox Kit™ an all-in-one, easy-to-use homeopathic all-in-one solution. “Every home should have one”.

In March 2018 Ian sold Steps to Health Pharmacy & Health Shop to focus full time on Pegasus Homeopathics. During this time Ian has developed the Maternity/Labour Kit – “Every pregnant woman should have one” and the Pegasus for Pets range.

Homeopathic remedies can be made from plant, animal or mineral substances. These substances, in homeopathic potency, each have unique mental, emotional and physical characteristics that have been identified by homeopathic practitioners over many years of trial and practice.Homeopathic remedies are available as either single remedies called simplexes (termed classical homeopathy) or as a combination of more than one ingredient, called complexes (clinical homeopathy). Treatment by a homeopathic doctor involves an in-depth, individual approach by a highly specialised professional. For the lay person, who wants to treat themselves naturally but who does not have the specialised knowledge, the combination remedies are more user-friendly. ...  The Pegasus remedies are homeopathic complexes, combining the common remedies for each ailment into one remedy to provide effective treatment. Our aim is to make this gentle system of healing more accessible to the lay person by making it easy-to-use. More...

Benefits of Homeopathy

1. Broad application

Each remedy may be used for a number of different ailments e.g. the sting 30C remedy, which can be used for any stinging sensation from a bee, wasp or jelly fish sting to a hot water scald and even severe sunburn. The anti-spasm 200C remedy can be used for any muscle spasm from stomach cramps and colic in babies to leg cramps and menstrual cramps.

2. Helps the body to heal itself and to stay in balance

Good health is all about balance. Illness may be seen as an imbalance in a particular area of the body.

Our bodies have an innate intelligence that works continuously to restore us to health.

Homeopathic remedies simply provide the stimulus or a ‘message of healing’ to the body to rectify the imbalance.

Each dose of the remedy is a reminder to the body to continue the healing process.

3. Treat symptoms and heals underlying cause

Homeopathy not only treats symptoms, but also works to shift the underlying reason for the imbalance.

This means that using the remedies on a regular basis for a particular ailment e.g. hay fever or cystitis, will result in fewer episodes as the body is brought closer to balance.

The higher potencies of the pegasus remedies mean a quick response time. In most cases a response is felt after the 3rd dose.

In acute conditions, the body uses up the remedies very quickly, so the higher potencies are more effective and also allow for healing of the underlying condition.

4. Safe for pregnancy and new borns

Homeopathy is absolutely safe for pregnant and breastfeeding moms to use as well as for new born infants. For more information on using in pregnancy, please go here and for dosing infants, please go here

5. Complementary to allopathic drugs

Homeopathy can be safely used in conjunction with conventional medicine as it will not interfere with or hinder the effectiveness of pharmaceutical drugs. Instead, the homeopathic remedy will go to work, treating both the cause and the symptoms.

6. Effective for animals

Our pets can benefit from homeopathy as the remedies are extremely effective for animals. Please see our Testimonials page

7. Remedies do not expire

Because homeopathic remedies never expire, they are very cost-effective. Unlike conventional pharmaceutical drugs, you will not have to throw them out if you don’t use them within a specified time period.

8. No risk of overdosing

It is not possible to overdose on homeopathic remedies. The body uses what it needs and simply eliminates whatever it doesn’t require.


History of Homeopathy

The term “homeopathy” comes from the Greek “homeo” meaning “like or similar” and “pathos” meaning “suffering or disease”.

The fundamental law upon which homeopathy is based is that of “like is cured by like” i.e. the “Law of Similars”.

The concept was introduced by the ancient philosopher, Hippocrates. In the early 1800′s a German doctor called Samuel Hahnemann, developed the concept further and formulated the principles of homeopathy. The “Law of Similars” implies that a remedy can cure an ailment if it produces in a healthy person, symptoms similar to those of the ailment or disease.

For example: because Allium cepa, the onion, causes watering of the eyes and nose, it may be indicated for the treatment of head colds and hay fever.


Hahnemann discovered that by diluting substances, their effects were enhanced. The “Law of the Infinitesimal Dose” implies that the healing power of a substance is in direct ratio to its degree of serial dilution.

The method of preparing homeopathic medicines is thus a controlled method of successive dilutions alternating with shaking or succussion. The method is known as potentizing and medicines of different dilutions are known as potencies, denoted by a number after the name e.g. 6C, 30C, 200C etc.

The C stands for centesimal and means that one part of the original substance has been mixed with 99 parts of alcohol. This cycle of dilution is repeated with shaking or succussing occurring after each dilution. A 6C has thus been through the dilution cycle 6 times and a 12C, 12 times etc. Strange as it may seem, the more dilute the potency, the greater the effect. A potentized remedy has very little of the original substance in it and is thus non-toxic and cannot cause side effects.
