What To Expect:Homeopathic Consult
Initial Consultation for Homeopathic Consultation– What To Expect.
When you come to this appointment, you will notice that you are given truly individualized care. There is no intermediary person between you and your physician here. You will speak directly with me whether by video, phone or in person.
My goal is to understand the person I am treating physically, mentally and emotionally so I can perceive what needs to be healed.
This is not a rushed interview and all your questions and concerns will be addressed by me. You can expect that I will return emails, phone calls personally, as well, to avoid miscommunications.
Your initial consultation will encompass an in-depth interview. You can expect this first visit to take about 1-2 hours. It will include a discussion of your main complaint as well as the history of illness in yourself and your family.
The goal of this interview is to gain an understanding your unique sensitivities and reaction patterns (or physiology) within your body, mind and emotions…your unique total imbalance and genetic patterns.
When all of the information has been discussed, underlying causes are considered and the search for a remedy begins. My goal is to eliminate the causes of imbalance and stimulate your body’s own natural curative powers. Conventional medicine usually covers up symptoms with high doses of drugs and doesn’t always address the sequence and progression of imbalances which often indicate the cause and cure.
After this initial consultation, you will be prescribed a remedy based on the knowledge of the curative powers of medicines from extensive literature and experience. For chronic illness, I may conduct further research if a well suited remedy is not discovered after the interview. In such case, I will call you with a best fitting solution within a day or two.
You may feel significantly better after only the first remedy. Other times remedies may need to work over a long period of time to restore health. A remedy may need to be repeated or changed as your reaction to the remedy progresses or continues over weeks to months. Several visits or extended treatment may be necessary.
It is extremely important to follow-up on a regular basis as your body changes in reaction to the remedy and as the stresses of life change your needs.
Follow-ups will help to assess your progress, and are required to adequately review your case in all its details. It is also very important to adjust the dose that is optimal for you. The follow-up will help to determine this as well. Follow-ups are usually done every 6-8 weeks and even sooner in the beginning of treatment just to make sure you have a good understanding of how to take your remedy and what to expect.
Any acute or new set of symptoms that come to the surface requires that you make a follow-up appointment with me as well.
