Acute illnesses include minor injuries (burns, wounds, bruises , broken bones), viral and bacterial infections that have lasted less than 4 weeks, and recent emotional traumas. It is often possible to have good success treating them yourself if you have a Homeopathic First Aid kit and some knowledge of homeopathy. Getting an acute consult is useful if you are new to homeopathy, need help deciding the best remedy to give or have been trying unsuccessfully to treat an ailment yourself.


Chronic illnesses include recurrent, relapsing or prolonged infections and usually require homeopathic support to achieve a complete resolution of symptoms. They include a set of symptoms you have been experiencing for some time. Often they include multiple body systems, mental and emotional and endocrine imbalances. Homeopathy can also address complex syndromes such as diabetes, eczema, chronic fatigue, developmental delays, stress and insomnia.


Why do I need a homeopath

There is much more to homeopathy than what is the remedy for X,Y or Z complaint. Every person is assessed according to their individual reaction. We may use one remedy to treat many different complaints, or several people with the same complaint, sinusitis, for example, may all get different remedies.

Taking a person's case is a detailed process which pivots on building a timeline so we can assess the original cause and progress of you complaint. The health and well-being of the family and ancestors are also taken into account. The initial interview is usually around 60-90 minutes, but we often spend an equal amount of time researching your case to find the best remedies and dosage schedule for you.

It is good to have an objective observer outside your family to gauge which remedy is best for you. We are trained to recognize the causation of symptoms, and ask the right questions to elicit the information needed to make the best decision. Most homeopaths have a minimum of 4 years training which includes anatomy, physiology, nutrition, psychology, homeopathic case-taking, materia medica, miasms, potencies and dosing schedules. We are trained to find the right remedy for you, out of the 1000's available, that is unique to your system.


How much is your health worth?


What would it mean to feel better; to have the energy to achieve your goals and dreams?


That anxiety is no longer preventing you from moving ahead?


That your child can achieve their full potential?


Homeopathy is not a magic bullet, but it does hold the potential for us to work together to achieve a strong resilient immune system, health and happiness.

What is a dose


One dose = 1 tablet or pillule or a few drops

2 tablets have the same effect as 1 tablet so there is no benefit to taking more than one.


How to take it


You can put one pill into a clean mouth (at least 15 mins before or after eating) and suck on it until it is dissolved. It is best to only touch the remedy if you are taking it yourself.

If you need to give the remedy to a child or a pet you can use a clean teaspoon.



Water dosing


You can put one dose in a small amount of water (10-20ml) in a clean class or bottle and stir or shake it well. You can then give a few drops of the remedy using a teaspoon or a dropper. If you use a dropper try to avoid bringing it into contact with the lips or mouth.


Next time you require a dose shake or stir the remedy well.




Repetition


Give one well-chosen remedy and then wait and see what happens.


For most acute situations, if nothing happens, you can repeat the remedy in one hour.


If the situation is very acute, for example a painful ear ache, you can repeat every 15 minutes


If symptoms go away then return, give a 2nd dose.


If the symptoms continue to improve there is no need to repeat the remedy.


Watch and wait.


Let the body heal.


If you have given 4 doses of the same remedy without any improvement, or new symptoms develop, it is probably not the right remedy. Go back and study your source material and see if there is another remedy that can help.


If you can't find the right remedy, or symptoms improve but keep coming back, consult your homeopath.


Potency


For most acute symptoms 30c potency is best.

Use what you have. 12c is fine. (Tissue salts are often in 3x or 6x potency).

If the symptoms are very intense or the patient is very distressed or anxious then it might be more appropriate to give 200c or 1m potency, if you have it.


You can also give 200c potency if the 30c potency you have given has been effective but is no longer working.


Higher potency remedies should not be repeated too often.


Sometimes remedies don't work because there is something blocking the cure.


You may need help from a homeopath to work out what this is. It may be an emotional factor, an environmental factor or something more deep-acting within the body.





It is good to avoid strong-smelling products such as menthol and peppermint while you are taking homeopathy.


Please store your remedies away from heat and light and computers and electrical devices, including your mobile phone.
