With homeopathy two individuals suffering from the same condition would likely benefit from different remedies. The difference in the way they experience the condition is used to determine the most suitable remedy.
To determine which remedy is most suited for a chronic condition an extensive interview is conducted. The initial consultation generally takes approximately 1.5 hours depending on age and the complexity of the case. Information is gathered about mental, emotional and physical well being. If you have one specific issue you would like to focus on a one hour consult is an option in some cases.
After a consultation, I will review and analyze your case and provide recommendations . As a homeopathic consultant, I cannot diagnose conditions or prescribe medications.

Homeopathy was developed over 200 years ago by German physician, Samuel Hahnemann. Through experimentation, which he called provings, Hahnemann discovered that a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy person could stop those same symptoms when a present in a sick person. He found that the more the diluted the substance became the more powerful a healing agent it became.
The homeopathic remedy serves as a catalyst to stimulate the bodies inate healing mechanism. Homeopathic remedies are non-toxic, natural medicines that can be used safely by people of all ages including infants, pregnant women and the elderly. They can be used for first aid, injuries, in addition to acute and chronic conditions. Homeopathic remedies are prepared from natural sources such as minerals, plants and animals. Remedies are prepared according to stringent specifications and are approved by the FDA. They are prepared by using a series of dilutions which are succussed (shaken) at each stage of dilution. The succussion releases the energetic nature of the substance so it can effect the vital force (also known as chi or prana) which is similarly energetic. Homeopathics are not herbs or vitamins. Their effectiveness has been proven in a growing number of clinical trials. The improvement seen with homeopathy can't be explained by the placebo effect when they have been shown to work in newborn babies and in comatose individuals.
Homeopathy's aim is to restore balance and strengthen vitality so an individual can recover from illness and maintain optimal health. Homeopathy is a holistic approach that takes into account the mental, emotional and physical well being. When your body is out of balance it produces symptoms and abnormal functions that we call disease. Homeopathy does not treat the disease, it takes into account the entire person. Each individual experiences their condition in a different way. Working directly with the client the practitioner works to understand how the client experiences their condition, how it affects them and uses the information to select a suitable remedy.
The approach is based on the concept of "like cures like", a substance that can produce symptoms in a healthy person can relieve a person who presents with those same symptoms . Have you ever drank too much coffee and felt nervous and unable to sleep? The homeopathic remedy coffea can be used by someone who experiences sleeplessness due to nervousness or overactivity of the mind. Have you every cut an onion and developed watery eyes and a drippy nose? A person who is presenting with these symptoms from seasonal allergies for example could take a dose of homeopathic onion-allium cepa to remedy the situation. The curative action of a remedy is uncovered during a homeopathic proving. These provings are conducted on healthy humans not on animals.
