what to expect
The aim of Homeopathy is rapid, gentle and permanent cure through the body’s own healing mechanisms in the shortest, surest and least harmful way.
After the consultation, the patient has the option to source their remedy on their own (a list of recommended pharmacies is available) or can choose to have the remedy provided to them. In most acute cases, I look for improvement that day. For chronic cases, relief has been observed within one to three months. Of course, for serious, long-established pathology, cure can take time but the results are usually long-lasting and sustainable. Most importantly, following the principle of individualization, each patient responds to the remedy in their own way and at their own pace.
The course of the treatment involves the in-depth interview followed by a remedy suggestion and instruction on how to take it. The first follow-up, in person or via Skype/FaceTime, is scheduled for 4-6 weeks after the remedy was first taken. The second follow-up is scheduled at 3-4 months. I like to stay in close touch with the patient usually through biweekly phone calls to assess how the treatment is going. The final follow-up is scheduled at 6 months. By the second follow-up, I expect the patient to have experienced some amelioration of their principle complaint. As mentioned before, this will be different depending on each individual case and pathology.
