Homeopathic treatment 

Homeopathy is used to treat both acute and chronic conditions. Any of these states is the expression of some sort of imbalance of the individual as a whole. The primary cause of such displacement may be convoluted and symptoms just a bare expression of it. The homeopath work is to identify the various layers covering this root cause and unveil each of them to release the natural flow of energy of the individual.

Acute and Chronic

There are two main categories of treatment in Homeopathic Medicine:

  • Acute treatment is for illness of recent onset:  Acute treatment may be self-limited (for example, the common cold), or it may progress if not treated (for example, pneumonia).  In such an illness the body might overcome the illness, a cold for example, sooner or later, but the appropriate medicine gently stimulates the body to recover more quickly and efficiently;
  • Chronic or constitutional treatment is the other main category of treatment: A chronic disease is long standing or a recurrent health problem.  The length of treatment and the challenge to achieve positive results is affected by many factors, including the nature of the problem, the early health history, the family medical history, the previous treatment, and the person’s inherent constitutional strength.  The goal is to help the person to return to a state of well-being through individualized homeopathic treatment.

Case taking

Case taking is essential to the homeopathic treatment: a case well taken is a case half cured. Case taking is the process of collecting all the facts about a patient and use them to identify the cause of the ailment and thus the response to cure and rebalance the individual.

The initial appointment is thus very important and lasts between 1 to 2 hours (and sometimes more depending on the case). This appointment provides the opportunity to discuss the patient’s health issues in details. During this consultation, the homeopath covers the patient’s full medical history and family history including information on lifestyle such as nutrition and specific symptoms that are or have been experienced. There are many reasons why we get out of balance.  During your consultation I will look at your fundamental constitution, which enables me to understand why you have become unwell and what changes need to be made to remedy that.  I also look at what are your inherited weaknesses and use homeopathic remedies to reduce your susceptibilities. I look for instance at the factors in your life that may have disturbed the way your body functions: traumatic events such as grief, injuries, abuse, emotional shocks, sudden change, job loss, change of environment, loss of a loved one, childbirth (for baby and mother etc). Human condition is very sensitive to all levels of physical shock, trauma and injuries, which often results in the deterioration of a person’s health.

At the end of the appointment the patient is given an homeopathic remedy(ies) either right away or s/he will receive her/his prescription within a few days. You may also be given some recommendations in terms of diet and nutrition to follow during your treatment.

The follow up appointments take about 30 minutes, during which the patient’s progresses are assessed. The timing of these follow-up appointments varies depending on the case and the patient’s condition, but they usually take place at 4-5 week intervals.
