Why do people use Homeopathy? To support their unique journey toward good health.
What can Homeopathy do for me? The Homeopath analyses many aspects of your life, so that they prescribe a remedy that is as unique as you and your illness. The Homeopath has a belief that if a person is treated holistically (mind, body and spirit) then the best results can be obtained. Who can use Homeopathy? Anyone from the young, pregnant or elderly can use Homeopathy. The remedies are gentle but effective. . The remedies are gentle but effective.
Do I need to follow a special diet or take supplements? Homeopaths believe that if given the right remedy it will be the catalyst toward your body moving toward a state of homeostasis or good health. Good healthy nutritional choices will support the maintenance of good health and the action of the homeopathic remedy. Supplements may be indicated in some cases.
How long will it take to get results? It can take variable amounts of time to see results depending on the issue. For example, an acute condition like tonsillitis can resolve within 24 hours, a panic attack can resolve within 10 minutes. Chronic problems may improve more gradually – often the symptoms become less and less until they no longer exist- or only present themselves under extreme pressure.
There is a theory that people are like an onion - take off one layer and then you can see an underneath layer that can need a different treatment - this theory I have seen in my practice.
How often will I need to see a Homeopath? After the initial consult, it is always good to see you again in 4-5 weeks, depending on the condition. Further appointments are negotiated according to your need.
How often do I need to take Homeopathic medicine? It all depends on the unique needs of you, the client. Sometimes the remedy may only need to be taken just once, other times it will need to be made more frequently. I say to my clients that it is like kicking a soccer ball into a goal- sometimes there need to be lots of nudges of the ball and sometimes a goal is achieved with just one kick.
How long do the results last after Homeopathic treatment? Again this is a unique response from each client. It depends on the condition. In most incidences, we hope that the remedy supported the body in developing good coping strategies. However in some chronic problems, if the body is put under stress, then the body can react in the previous pathological way. For instance, a reoccurring migraine that has been treated may resurface in a situation of stress. In most cases, if this happens, it tends to be a lesser level and managed with less remedy.
What about side effects? Potentization (serial dilution), which is a part of the process of the making of a Homeopathic remedy means that the therapeutic effects of the remedy are increased and the toxic effects eliminated. This makes the remedies a gentle, yet an active, nontoxic form of treatment.
Should I stop taking my prescription medication in order to use Homeopathy? The remedies will not interfere with your prescription medicines.
