Homeopathy

How long does a treatment last?

The initial consultation takes 1.5 to 2hours.  You will be asked questions about your problem and the symptoms you experience, also questions about your medical history; your body systems such as sleep and digestion; and factors such as stress and life-style.  Subsequent appointments are up to 1 hour and require an update on your symptoms and your sense of well-being.

How many treatments will I need? And how often?

This depends very much on what your problem is, as well as other individual characteristics of your case.  Follow-up appointments are initially every 4 to 6 weeks, with the interval becoming greater as you improve.  However, every individual has a different experience of treatment and may be seen more frequently, or over a longer period.

Is Homeopathy safe?

Homeopathic practitioners at the clinic are registered with the Society of Homeopaths, which lays out a strict code of ethics and practice.

The serial dilution of homeopathic remedies means they are non-toxic for even the most sensitive constitutions.

How will I feel after taking a remedy?

Patients react in different ways after taking a remedy.  Some feel an immediate surge of well-being, others may feel very tired at first and need to take it easy for a few days before improvements are noticed.  Sometimes patients become briefly aware of a return of old symptoms from an earlier problem.  For some the symptoms for which they sought help get a little worse before getting better.  All these are signs that the remedy is working and a process of return to vitality has begun.
