What I do
The first consultation takes around 1 and 1/2 hours. Homeopathy is a holistic treatment, treating a patient on all levels; mental, physical and emotional. Hence I will question you about the condition that you need to be treated, but also on many other aspects of your life. A fundamental of homeopathic understanding and philosophy is that illness can result from prolonged emotional and mental stress. Hence it stands to reason that a large proportion of the consultation involves questioning around events in your life around the time a condition started and its impact upon you emotionally. I recognise also that environmental factors can impact your health, so I might also recommend nutritional and lifestyle changes as part of the overall treatment. A classic example is 'How much water do you drink?'. Very few people drink sufficient water and are constantly dehydrated!
Once the consultation is complete, a homeopathic remedy will probably be prescribed, either in the form of small sugar tablets to be taken over 24 hours or drops to be taken daily. I recommend that in some conditions, for example migraines, that the patient keeps a symptom diary, so when they return for a follow-up 3-4 weeks later, assessment of progress can be better made. During the time between appointments, I always tell my patients that any concerns or questions can usually be addressed quite quickly if they telephone me.
At the follow-up appointment I will check through the points that were raise at the first consultation. This process helps me check through all the symptoms discussed and allows me to assess the progress the patient has made after treatment. Depending on the progress, they may either receive a repeat prescription or a change of prescription. This appointment is extremely important because the initial response to the remedy is unique to every patient and indicative of how future treatment can progress with regard to remedies and dosage.
The number of follow-up appointments after that point varies from patient to patient. A rule of thumb in treatment is that for every year a person has suffered with a condition, it will take that many months to effect a cure. However, regular homeopathic treatment can also help maintain health and is a good approach to preventing illness as well as treating illness. The Queen Mother was a wonderful example of the results of years of homeopathic treatment.
