Homeopathy was developed in 1790 by German scientist and doctor, Samuel Hahnemann. Hahnemann was upset with some of the medical procedures he witnessed and began a search for the most effective medicine that stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself and bring the organ(s) and system(s) into balance with the least side effects.
Homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances such as plants, minerals, animals and elements. My job as your homeopath is to match your symptoms with our remedies to stimulate healing.
Homeopathic remedies are an energy medicine. The substances go through a process called potentisation which consists of serial dilution (taking the toxicity out) and dilution (creating different strengths to increase the healing power).
Homeopathy addresses illnesses in the body on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual plane.
It can complement your current medication and can be prescribed for acute or chronic diseases. It can help reduce discomfort during medication, treatments and advanced conditions.
Homeopathic remedies are safe to use during pregnancy and childbirth. Homeopathy is comforting during palliative care and very effective in children.
Your Homeopathic Consultation
Your first consultation might take 1-1.5 hrs as this will examine different areas of your health and concerns, including your medical history and family medical history. I will inquire as to your symptoms and what makes them better or worse and how you deal with life situations. We may look at your sleep patterns, dreams, fears and dislikes. We will explore your symptoms in detail to gain a deeper understanding of what is happening for you. I will study all this information to form a picture of your holistic being so I can prescribe the most effective possible remedy for you.
Homeopathy is a gentle practice. You might feel an immediate improvement within yourself on taking your remedy or you may notice a gradual improvement of your symptoms. Sometimes we see a brief return of old symptoms which are short lived and considered a great sign in homeopathy as we go back through the layers to bring a deeper healing. It is a powerful journey to bring about change in your life and I look forward to supporting you.
A shorter follow-up appointment is needed within 3 weeks to 3 months after your prescription to note your reactions to your remedy and to further your healing process.
A homeopathic prescription is very individual as we treat you and your unique symptoms. It is common not to receive your remedy immediately after your consult due to the work involved in prescriptions, however it will be available as soon as possible.
I am currently learning the Intentional Grace System which you may choose to use with your treatment plan.
I am also about to embark on our NZ Homeopath Council registration process.
