Your first visit with me will take approximately 1.5 hours.
During this time, I will want to know everything I can about
your state of being and reactions to the world. This will
involve detailed information about your physical, mental and
emotional health. I will also be searching for factors that
may have contributed to or caused your illness, including
shock, stress, injury or history in your family. I am especially
interested in things that you may not be accustomed to speaking
about with your other health practitioners. These include
your reactions to certain foods, weather, temperatures, times
of day, etc. I may even ask about your dreams or other factors
that may feel are seemingly unimportant. These factors are
often the most useful to me and I urge you to feel comfortable
in expressing them. I respect your individual experience and
encourage you to be open and honest in order for us to create
healing in your life. You can be assured that all that takes
place during the consultation will be held in the strictest
The healing process:
After the consultation, I will give you a remedy that will
initiate healing in your body. As this healing is occurring,
you will notice some changes taking place. Due to the gentle
nature of homeopathy, the changes may be very subtle. In these
cases, improvement will be steady and gradual. In other cases,
changes can be more intense and sudden and improvement will
be more rapid. You may also experience a period of heightened
well being and optimism. All of these responses are significant
and indicate that the remedy has touched your vitality and
you are on your way to improved health and well being.
I encourage all of my patients to keep a journal to keep track
of all the changes that occur between visits. When we are
feeling better it is easy to forget the quantity and intensity
of symptoms we once experienced. This is natural and occurs
to many of us on our healing journey. Writing the changes
down enables better communication between you and me. All
changes are relevant, from dreams, body temperature and energy
to the changes in the physical symptoms you experience. Keeping
a journal also allows you to take a vital role in your own
healing, something viewed as very beneficial.
Do homeopathic remedies interfere with other medications?
No, homeopathic remedies will not interfere with other forms
of treatment and they are safe to take with prescription drugs.
You will never be asked to discontinue taking your prescription
medications. However, as your health improves with treatment
you may feel as though you no longer need the same dosage
of your prescription medication. It is at this time that you
should discuss this with your family doctor. Never stop taking
a prescription medication without doing this first.
