Frequently Asked Questions about Homeopathy


What happens during a homeopathic consultation?

The consultation focuses on the whole person, on their experience of their illness in their life. The consultation contains questions about your symptoms and everything that might influence you: the effects of time of day, position, temperature, weather changes, seasons, situations and emotions, diet, exercise. Each person when they are ill maintains a pattern of symptoms which is their best possible response to the illness. The purpose of the consultation is to understand and recognize this pattern of symptoms and match it in a homeopathic medicine chosen especially to stimulate natural healing.

Will homeopathy affect the medication I’m already taking?

NO. . You should continue all the medication you are already taking - it will not stop the healing effect of homeopathy. Homeopathic medicines are gentle yet act deeply and in harmony with your body and any other medication you need.

How long will homeopathic treatment last?

As long as you and your body need support, so the length of each treatment depends on: how long you have been ill, how severely ill you are, how long it might take for your body to heal and repair. It takes longer to heal joints than to heal skin. People often respond to homeopathy soon and once improvement begins it continues as it supports your natural healing resources.

How do you take homeopathy medicines?

The medicines are taken by mouth - as drops in water, or as pills or tablets to suck. They do not have a strong taste. Babies and young children are given the medicines in sweet granules. Full typed instructions are given on how to take the medicines and how often to take them or give them to your child. Usually the medicines are taken daily at the beginning of treatment.
