How long will we be working together?
I find that in most cases, we work closely together for 3-9 months, and then as needed. Once a treatment plan is working, clients often have no need to check in for many months or years. I have many clients that have been with me since I started practicing, though I see them infrequently. I plan to be here for my clients regardless of how long it has been since I have seen them.
Do you have a specialty?
I specialize in thyroid health, and I have expertise in treating all types of thyroid dysfunction. Read more about thyroid health here. However, I treat lots of different types of problems, not just thyroid problems, so don’t worry if that’s not what’s going on for you. Book a free 15-minute consult if you are wondering if I am a good fit for you.
I’ve tried homeopathy, and I don’t think it works on me.
Is that possible?
Homeopathy works on everyone, but sometimes homeopaths don’t find the right remedy. When an incorrect match is made between your case and a remedy, then exactly nothing happens. Homeopaths are human, and sometimes can’t quite see the whole pattern of the case on the first try. If you don’t feel better after the remedy, don’t give up! Lots can be learned from an incorrect remedy choice, and the information gained can lead to a correct remedy. I like to say that homeopathy is perfect, and homeopaths are imperfect.
Is it ok to drink coffee?
Homeopathy has a bad reputation for being the mode of medicine with the most restrictions; no coffee, no mint, no chocolate. It’s my opinion that most things will not interfere with your homeopathic treatment, and most clients in my practice do drink coffee. That said, some people are very sensitive, and might be reactive to strong scents like essential oils or camphor, and that could potentially affect their homeopathic treatment. These are details that can be explored when you come to your first appointment. For now, your coffee routine is safe!
Can I use homeopathy to treat my children?
Yes, absolutely! Homeopathy is a gentle, safe, effective treatment for acute and chronic ailments such as ear infections, coughs, colds, sore throats, fevers, fears and so much more. Check out my classes and webinars on treating families with homeopathy.
Is homeopathy safe for everyone?
Yes! Remedies are safe for babies, children, adults, pregnant women, elderly people and animals. They are made in regulated pharmacies and are FDA-approved.
What are homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies are made from minute, diluted quantities of natural substances, such as plants, minerals and a few animal substances. The remedies carry only the energetic pattern of the original material, hence they retain the healing properties with none of the toxic properties. There are thousands of remedies in our homeopathic pharmacy.
What forms do remedies come in?
Remedies come in several forms; pellets, tablets, ointments, gels and tinctures. They can be purchased at health food stores and specialty pharmacies throughout the world.
What does “potency” refer to, and what is safe to use?
The potency refers to the strength of the remedy’s action. Remedies come in different potencies. 6C, 12C and 30C are low potencies, safe for anyone to use at home. 200C, 1M and higher potencies are stronger, and should only be used with the supervision of a professional homeopath. Most health food stores carry 30C potencies.
Are there side effects from taking homeopathic remedies?
Homeopathic remedies have no contra-indications or side effects. Remedies are selected carefully to match the symptoms of the acute or chronic case. When an incorrect remedy is given, no healing takes place, and no harm takes place. When nothing happens after taking a remedy, it means the wrong remedy was chosen, and a new remedy needs to be selected.
How long are your appointments?
Have a look at my Work with Me page for all the details about my appointments. My initial complete chronic appointments are 3 hours, focused chronic appointments are 2 hours, and follow-ups are 1 hour. For children, I divide the time into two sessions; the first part with the parents alone, and the second part with you and your child.
How can I learn more about how to use homeopathy with my own family?
I frequently teach parents how to use homeopathy at home with their families. With basic knowledge, some books and remedies to keep at home, you can learn to help your family with simple first aid, colds and flus, fevers and other common ailments. You can be empowered to maintain the health of your family and spend less time at the doctor’s office. I have a recorded webinar called Introduction to Homeopathy which details how to treat your family at home.
