During the first appointment we will discuss current symptoms as well as some background information, including medical history and details of tendencies. For example, general temperament and lifestyle choices. This helps build a full picture that I can refer to at future appointments. This appointment lasts about 1 to 1.5 hours. At the end of the appointment I will prescribe homeopathic remedies, along with guidance on how to take them.
What happens next
The follow up appointment will be arranged for 2-4 weeks after the first, depending on the symptoms being treated. I believe it is important in homeopathic treatment that a few notes are taken between appointment to keep track of the changes that you notice, or others observe. This will provide a clearer picture of what has changed and therefore how we progress.
Response to remedies
The pace at which relief is felt from the presenting symptoms may vary and depend on circumstances such as, how deep rooted the condition is. With acute conditions, for example a cough or sickness bug, the relief can be almost instant, whereas with more chronic conditions it can take a while to unravel. It may also depend on the vitality or energy of the individual.
