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.
