Your First consultation
At your first appointment, which lasts just over an hour, you will be asked to talk about yourself, your condition and medical history. Homeopathic treatment is individualised and considers all aspects of your condition: personality traits, physical features and states, the effects of environmental influences, lifestyle, patterns of disease within your family, relationships and your current emotional state.
A specific homeopathic prescription is then determined, to match your individual needs.
In first aid and acute illness, homeopathy can be extremely quick and effective. With longer-term conditions, a safe and gradual return to health may require several appointments. Overall length of treatment depends on the severity of the condition.
how much will it cost?
Regular fees £75 for a consultation, including prescription and remedy. Follow up consultations are £65
I like to see patients for an initial session plus at least one follow up (more usually two follow ups), in order to monitor changes and adjust prescriptions as necessary and to effect a smooth and gentle healing process.
Try not to handle the pills: the medication is on the OUTSIDE of them (rather like information on a DVD) and touching them by hand can "smudge" the information. Use a spoon to scoop them out of a bag (if used) or tip them into the lid of a bottle, and then straight into your mouth.
Let the remedy dissolve in your mouth for at least 30 seconds.
If you touch or drop a pill, please throw it away rather than putting it back into the bottle or bag. Try to take the remedies in a clean mouth (i.e. no chewing gum).
Can homeopathy be taken with other medicine?
Homeopathic remedies may be used alongside conventional medicine. Sometimes patients visit a homeopath to work out a programme which can enable them to discontinue using prescription drugs.
In many cases, this can be achieved gradually over time, alongside checks with your own G.P. In this way, potential withdrawal symptoms are minimised or avoided.
