What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that stimulates your body to relieve symptoms, restore health, and improve your overall well-being. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, and doesn’t have any of the side effects of many traditional medications.
Homeopathy treats the WHOLE person: mentally, emotionally and physically. For example, if you come to a homeopath with migraines, we want to know all about how YOU experience the migraines but then we also want to know all about YOU and who YOU are WITH these migraines. This is why 10 different people who may come to a homeopath for migraines won’t get the same remedy. Everyone is unique in the way they experience their symptoms.
What Are Some of the More Common Things Homeopathy Can Help With?
• Arthritis/Musculoskeletal Pain
• Behavioral Issues
• Digestive Issues
• Respiratory Issues
• Frequent Illnesses
• Lyme Disease
• Severe Constipation or Diarrhea
• Sleep Issues
• PMS/Menopause/Women’s issues
What Can You Expect from Homeopathic Treatment?
Your first appointment, also called your initial intake, will take about two hours. We want to know what brought you to the office including the symptoms you are experiencing, what brought them on, what makes them better or worse, and more. The more detailed information you can provide the homeopath, the better. We also want to know who you are mentally, emotionally and physically. Don’t worry, we ask any questions needed to fill in the blanks.
After you share the many pieces of your life’s puzzle, our job is to put them together and match you to the most appropriate homeopathic remedy. You may get a homeopathic remedy at your first session but more likely, we may want to take some thoughtful time to further study your information before deciding on a good remedy for you. We may email or call you with a few more questions and then provide the remedy recommendation.
The body needs time to heal itself and patience is important in this process. We encourage you to communicate how things are going with us, especially in the first few weeks after starting a remedy, and then we meet about 4-6 weeks later to officially gauge the remedies effect. It is strongly encouraged to plan a minimum of 3-6 months of homeopathic care when you start working with us.
In addition to finding the right remedy for you, we may suggest some lifestyle or diet issues that may need attention or suggest avoidance of some unhealthy activities you may not have been aware of. We may suggest you visit your primary care physician or other medical professional to get tested to make sure we aren’t dealing with something more serious.
If your objective of coming to see a homeopath is to get off a pharmaceutical medication, please know that we totally support this BUT we CAN NOT take you off of a medicine another professional has prescribed. You will need to work with the prescribing professional on this.
