I’ve tried homeopathy, and it doesn’t work on me.
Homeopathy works on everyone, but sometimes homeopaths don’t find the right remedy. When an incorrect match is made between your case, acute or chronic, and a remedy, then exactly nothing happens. Homeopaths are human, and sometimes can’t quite see the whole pattern of the case on the first try. If you don’t feel better after the remedy, don’t give up! Lots can be learned from an incorrect remedy prescription, and often it leads to a correct remedy. I like to say that homeopathy is perfect, and homeopaths are imperfect. Hang in there, it works!
Do you treat children and babies?
Yes, I treat children and babies on a daily basis. This is a family practice, so I treat everyone in the family. I frequently treat recurring ear and respiratory infections, colic, skin conditions, anxiety and fears, to name just a few.
What are homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are made from minute, diluted quantities of natural substances, such as plants, minerals and animal products. The remedies carry only the energetic pattern of the original substance, not any of the actual substance, hence they retain the healing properties with none of the toxic properties. There are thousands of remedies in our homeopathic pharmacy.
What forms do remedies come in?
Remedies come in several forms; pellets, ointments, gels and tinctures. They can be purchased at health food stores and specialty pharmacies throughout the world.
What does “potency” refer to, and what is safe to use?
The potency refers to the strength of the remedy’s action. Remedies come in different potencies; 6C, 12C and 30C are low potencies, safe for anyone to use at home. 200C, 1M and higher potencies are stronger, and should only be used with the supervision of a professional homeopath. Most health food stores carry 30C potencies.
Is homeopathy safe for everyone?
Remedies are safe for babies, children, adults, pregnant women, elderly people and animals. They are FDA-approved.
Are there side effects from taking homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies have no contra-indications or side effects. Remedies are selected carefully to match the symptoms of the acute or chronic case. When an incorrect remedy is given, no healing takes place, and no harm takes place. When nothing happens after taking a remedy, it means the wrong remedy was chosen, and a new remedy needs to be selected.
How long are your appointments?
My initial appointments are 3 hours. For children, I divide the time into two sessions; 2 hours with the parents alone, and 1 hour with you and your child. Depending on the child’s age, I may also spend some time alone with your child. It’s longer than you’re used to because I need to gather a lot of information and get to know you. I don’t want anyone to feel rushed. My follow-ups are usually 45 minutes to one hour.
How can I learn more about homeopathy?
I frequently teach parents how to use homeopathy at home with their families. With basic knowledge, some books and remedies to keep at home, you can learn to help your family with simple first aid, colds and flus, fevers and other common ailments. You can be empowered to maintain the health of your family, and spend less time at the doctor’s office. Email me directly to find out my next teaching engagement.
How do I know if you are the right practitioner for me?
I am always available to have a 15 minute free consultation before booking an appointment. This gives you a chance to ask me questions and get to know me a bit better. It gives me a chance to learn more about you and your health concerns and make the right plan moving forward.
