What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathic medicine is a practice that has been offering a natural and holistic approach for over 200 years. Homeopathy treats patients as a whole, and rather than focusing on specific physical symptoms. It also considers psychological and emotional manifestations, as well as the patient's constitution. A constitution includes qualities related to creativity, initiative, persistence, concentration, physical sensitivities, and stamina. The right remedy for a condition will take all of these aspects into account, so each diagnosis and remedy is individualized. That means 3 people with hay fever could need 3 different prescriptions.
How does Homeopathy work?
The first principle of homeopathy is "like cures like". This means that something that could cause severe illness, when administered at a high dilution, will cure a disease rather than cause it. Homeopathic remedies are substances derived from plants, minerals, or animals. When prepared for treatments, they are diluted to a dose low enough to be safe and promote healing. Remedies are regulated by the FDA and are safe without harmful side effects.
What should I expect at my consultation?
A key component to successful homeopathy is to create a partnership with your doctor. Your first visit will be very thorough and last 1-1.5 hours. The doctor will take a detailed medical history and will ask questions about your symptoms, as well as behavior and personality traits. Honesty and detailed answers are valued and important to determine the right homeopathic remedies.
