What you can expect
Your first homeopathic consultation would last about one and a half hours. This time is spent finding out about you, your idiocyncracies, your symptoms, health history and family health history. It goes without saying that everything said is treated in the strictest confidence. A remedy is then given on the basis of the information given. I see patients at two, three, or more usually, four weekly intervals and patients are encouraged to make notes of any changes they have experienced so that they can be discussed at the next appointment.
At the second consultation I will ask you about your response to the remedy. This important feedback enables me to assess the progress of your treatment and help me to understand more about you and how your body works.
Because of the unique way that homeopathy works (in treating the whole person) you will probably, during the process, also experience relief of minor ailments you'd expected to have to live with. Patients of homeopathy are often pleased to find that apart from being relieved of the problem they came with, their digestion is improved, or they are sleeping better for example.
My aim as a practioner is not only to make you well but to help you to understand your treatment and feel fully responsible for, and in control of, you own state of health and well-being. To this end I will always explain fully my reasons for prescribing certain remedies and my thinking around it.
Generally, you should be able to commit yourself to 4-5 sessions of homeopathy, otherwise you could be wasting your time and money on the initial one. You may not need all these but because of the way that homeopathy works, in aiming to get to the root cause of the problem and treat that, rather than just to mask the symptoms, a lot of input from you is necessary and a lot of understanding from me, and this takes time.
