Classical homeopathic prescribing is based on the selection of a single remedy that most closely matches your symptoms at that time and then waiting to observe your response before administering another remedy. This method is also known as Hahnemannian or constitutional prescribing.
Your first visit with a homeopath usually will take up to two hours.
You will be asked for detailed information about your physical, mental, and emotional health and your likes and dislikes. This will enable your homeopath to understand your unique individuality. Of particular interest will be your reactions to the external world, such as temperature, weather, food, etc. Your homeopath will also search for factors that may have contributed to or caused your illness, including stress, shock, traumas, or family history.
Your homeopath might prescribe immediately or may study your case and supply a remedy at a later date. Usually a follow-up appointment will be scheduled four to six weeks later, to determine the effectiveness of the remedy.
The homeopathic treatment of chronic diseases is a process that takes time, especially when other medications are involved. Your homeopath will require regular follow-up visits in order to assess your reaction to your remedy and to decide whether to repeat it, change its potency, or move on to another remedy.
Included in the first visit is:
a review of your medical history
a homeopathic analysis, and homeopathic remedy
The first consultation visit lasts between 1.5-2.5 hours
The follow up consultations are scheduled with 4-6 weeks intervals.
