During your first homeopathic visit I will work with you to establish a complete picture of your current physical status.
The questions that we will go over will include your current and past symptoms, both physical and mental, history questions from previous generations in blood relatives, and your goals for what you hope to achieve for your optimal health.
We can expect this visit to take from 60 to 90 minutes as we work to establish a complete picture of your individuality.
I will then discuss with you what homeopathy can offer to help you reach those goals.
Depending on which remedy is selected your program may require daily dosing, weekly dosing, or occasionally a single dose. This will be discussed during the appointment.
Follow-up appointments can be every 2 weeks to once a month. At these follow-up appointments we will discuss your progress. These appointments can expect to be from 20 to 30 minutes.
What happens next?
After taking your remedy, you can expect to notice some changes. Some patients experience a period of exceptional well being and optimism. Sometimes your symptoms can appear to get worse for a short time. This is often a good sign that the remedy is taking effect. Sometimes a cold, rash or some form of discharge may appear as a "healing stimulation" which means your system is going through a clearing out stage. Similarly, old symptoms can reappear, usually for a short period.
These symptoms are an important part of the healing process but, if any response to your treatment concerns you, feel free to contact me. You might also want to make notes of any changes and bring them with you to discuss at your next appointment.
How long will it take?
This depends very much on what sort of illness you have, as well as the other individual characteristics of your case. Every case is different. A slowly developing complaint or one that has been experienced for some years may take longer to improve, although there may be a response and some improvement quite soon. Acute complaints can often get better more quickly.
Homeopathic remedies work from the inside out, with the patient usually feeling more positive in themselves, with more energy. Outer symptoms such as skin conditions are often the last to clear. Sometimes patience is called for – as the balance is slowly restored, the symptoms will improve.
Homeopathic remedies are different from what you may be used to. The remedy needs to be handled with care. It is best to follow these recommendations:
