Top Homeopathy Questions
We’re Here for You
What will my first session of Classical Homeopathy be like?
When we meet for the first time for Classical Homeopathy, more time is allowed so that a full case history can be gathered. You will go through your current concerns as well as a thorough health and relevant life history. Your homeopath will try to gain an understanding of what it is like to be you – to walk in your shoes. What makes you happy, sad, or angry? How you live – how you would like to live. You can decide what you bring and discuss at the homeopathy session – the approach works for people who are gregarious open souls, as well as those of us who are more private. The session provides a safe, non-judgemental space in which to discuss and explore your health, thoughts and feelings. In the accepting space of a homeopathy session, you may be listened to in a different way that you might not have experienced before – one that enables you to reflect and make connections about yourself.
Do you work with people with physical or mental and emotional ailments?
Homeopathy has been proven extremely effective for physical, as well as mental and emotional ailments. When you visit a homeopath, all of yourself comes for the visit - physical, mental, emotional, and even spiritual, as homeopathy recognizes that all parts are connected. Invariably, regardless of your presenting complaint, the homeopathic intake process will gather information about you across all of these realms, in order to form a complete picture of you and find a well suited remedy. The remedy is aimed at helping your presenting complaint as well as improving your overall immune system, vitality, and sense of well-being. Often, though a person may come for a physical complaint, they may find that they receive benefits in their mental and emotional health, as well, and vice-versa.
What if I am taking conventional medication?
One of the beauties of homeopathy is that, since it is working in a completely different way than conventional, otherwise known as allopathic, medicine, the two are usually not contraindicated. Homeopathy works on the vitalistic or bio-energetics of the body, whereas allopathic medicine generally works on the biochemistry. In some situations, as you improve with homeopathy, you may decide, with the assistance of your prescribing physician, to gradually come off a drug. In other situations, you may be required to remain on a drug. Depending on the situation, homeopathy can still be safe and effective.
Do you primarily work with adults or chilren?
Homeopathy is safe and effective for people of all ages. I love working with adult men and women, pregnancy, babies, children, and teenagers. It is especially gratifying working with family groups, as individual members of a family often see greater results when the whole family is considered and supported through homeopathy. This truly is the most holistic approach.
