DH and I are improving our diet and trying to do some more exercise, but I seem to have lots of minor ailments. I was wondering if a visit to some sort of practitioner would help, but which sort. I wondered what your experiences of the many and varied types of alternative therapies might be.

I have verucas, athletes foot, thyroid problems etc.

A good homeopath might give you what's called a 'constitutional' remedy, rather than aiming to treat each individual symptom - this will take into consideration lots of factors about what type of person you are, what things make you feel better or worse (for example do you prefer fresh air or a warm room) etc.
