An initial consultation is thorough, like nothing you have experienced before; we will go over all areas of your life, illness and really get to the root of what is making you sick in the first place. Your disease label isn’t important to a me as your homeopath, but the way you experience and deal with your illness will be imperative to your homeopathic healing journey. You will be gently led through 1 ½ -2 hours of questions to get to the center of your case. Afterwards, you will be prescribed a homeopathic medicine to help bring your body back to balance and ride yourself of your disease. I will instruct you to give me an update 2 days after taking the remedy, as well I ask my patients to keep observations on a written calendar. This way we can see patterns when we have an official follow-up around 4 to 6 weeks after that first appointment. A lot happens in a day let alone a month or more so keeping notes helps.
Sometimes, I see people tell me about new symptoms and totally forget the initial reasons or complaint that brought them to me in the first place. It’s human nature to focus on the present and not remember the past. They do this since those initial symptoms have healed and they are ready for more healing. This is yet another reason why I find homeopathy amazing!
Follow up visits generally last about 30 – 45 mins. During this time, we will talk about how you are feeling after you have taken your remedy. Sometimes I will prescribe more of the same remedy, other times a new remedy will be prescribed and I may even ask you to “wait and watch” not take anything until the body is needing more homeopathic medicine.
The idea with homeopathy is to have your body heal, give your body time with the remedy to make changes and not rush the healing or medicate you.
People ask how long of a process this is? Well it really does depend, on what your illness is, how long you have been suffering, how open you are with sharing your unique symptoms, what other things you have used to treat your illness and whether or not you have removed some organs. I usually see improvement within the first week after treatment. And the patients I have treated have usually returned to a state of health and wellbeing. I notice it could take one to two months of homeopathic treatment for every year of suffering. Meaning, if you come to see me after 5 years of migraine headaches, you should be symptom free within 5 to 10 months.
You may have coverage through your extended health plan for homeopathy. At present OHIP doesn’t cover this healing modality.
Often times HOMEOPATHY is mistaken for Naturopathy or Herbology. Although, these other modalities also use nature to heal, they aren’t even close to providing the trans-formative long lasting healing that homeopathy does. You can read more about homeopathy here.
The way I see it, here in Ontario,
homeopathy is complementary health care.
I am unable to order medical tests in this province, so I need you to keep a nice open rapport with your medical doctor this way we can all work together to keep you in the best of health.
