What happens in a Consultation.
History of Homeopathy
Homeopathy was developed by a German Doctor of Medicine, Samuel J. Hahnemann in 1776.
Homeopathy uses the symptoms of a sick person and matches it to a remedy which shares the same symptom picture as that sick person. During a consultation the more information you can give your Homeopath the best chance we have of finding the best remedy for you.
Hahnemann's philosophy was to give the lowest dose for the gentlest, longest lasting effect.
The general principles behind Homeopathy have not changed since its development by Hahnemann all those years ago.
Acute - involves an intense but isolated problem with clear and distinct symptoms. Has only been present for one to 2 days. Will involve a quick-fire questions and answer session. Obvious remedy choice.
Focus - involves more listening. Problem is isolated but has been present for a little while (a few weeks). The condition is not going away like it should.
Comprehensive - involves the practitioner listening to the client. It is a conversation about your general state of health, any physical ailments or things that you are struggling with at that time. It can cover things such as sleep patterns, your routines, how you get on with those around you as well as likes and dislikes. This consult is better for those who have been dealing with a condition or multiple conditions for a while.
Follow-up - is a re-visit to see how you are going on your remedy. In most cases, you will be given some more of the remedy with adjustments. This is a very important part of your treatment journey.

In all cases the practitioner will determine which consultation you will need depending
on the condition presented and other factors. Each consultation is
completely confidential and all documentation is legally required to be
