When you meet with me for the first time, we sit down in my comfortable, quiet office for about two hours and you tell me about yourself - what health issues you may be dealing with, when they started, and how they impact your life. We go from there to you describing yourself in perhaps a more thorough and detailed way than you have ever done before. In order to choose the correct homeopathic remedy for you, I need to find out about you as a unique person. When I see young children and infants, I ask the parents to give me a detailed family health history and the child's health history as far back as the mother's conception and pregnancy.
Sometimes I am able to choose the remedy I'd like to give you or your child by the end of the visit, or I may need to spend some additional time to analyze your case and make that decision. I am committed to getting back to you within two working days during this process. Sometimes I need to call you and ask a few follow up questions to be certain of the remedy I'd like to have you take. There are thousands of possible homeopathic remedies; I am looking for the one that fits you best and will help your body do what it needs to do to heal itself.
I stock a large selection of homeopathic remedies in my office. Occasionally we'll need to order them from a local homeopathic pharmacy, Hahnemann Labs; they will ship to you within a few days of your order.
Follow Up Visits
We schedule our next visit together for about four weeks after you begin taking your remedy. At this visit I assess how you are doing with the remedy, and you can ask any questions that may have come up. Depending on your progress, I will either suggest you continue to take the remedy as you had been, or I will decide on a different potency or frequency of taking it, or a different remedy. Oftentimes, it can take a number of weeks to notice significant progress, so I am looking for even small changes in energy and well-being.
Many clients start to have major shifts in their health with the first remedy, but there are many others who need more time and more remedies to feel a significant cure. There are many reasons for this - some have deep illness that has been suppressed for many years, others have inherited conditions that are difficult to cure, still others are taking strong medications that may interfere with natural medicine.
Commitment to Your Health
True healing is a big commitment for both the healer and the client. I'm dedicated to people having deep and long-lasting cure, which includes relief of symptoms physically, mentally and emotionally. I'm committed to people having the sense that they can do the positive things they've always wanted to for themselves and humanity, the creativity and desire to give to their community in whatever ways they desire.
Your commitment is to give your body and spirit the time it needs to heal. We need to meet regularly for at least 3- 6 months in order to make certain we have the correct remedy and potency for you to heal deeply and well. Once we know things are going well, we can meet once or twice a year to check in. It often takes a few years to feel completely free of the symptoms that brought you in, but meanwhile, you feel better and better. It's often a matter of looking back and realizing that the issues you were dealing with, for perhaps years, are no longer there.
