How does a Homeopathic Consultation take Place
The first consultation usually takes 45 mins to 1 hour. This allows enough time for the homeopath to obtain information to build the unique symptom picture required.  It is the role of the homeopath to select from hundreds of remedies the one remedy which most exactly matches the symptoms of the client. The homeopath is interested in all aspects of the presenting complaint, personal health history, family history, reactions to the environment, mental/emotional state as well as the general functioning of all the systems of the body.

It does not make any difference if there are several problems at once (e.g. headaches, phobias, endometriosis). It is the individual expression of the illness that is important. Hence the homeopathic remedy that stimulates the cure for one persons headaches may not necessarily do so for another.

A follow up consultation is usually recommended in 1-2 weeks depending on the nature of the complaint. This usually takes approximately 30 minutes and allows for evaluation and plan of treatment. The frequency of consultations vary from person to person depending on individual needs.

I am new to this mode of therapy. Can you please tell me what homeopathy is?
A.: Well, homeopathy may be new to you. However, it has been in practice for last 200 years, ever since Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, MD, introduced it in Germany in the year 1794. Homeopathy is a fast growing, and probably one of the most advanced alternative medicine in the world today.

Homeopathy is a science of healing based on the Nature’s law of cure, where “like cures like”, where a medicinal substance is used in a very minute dose (infinitesimal dose) as the remedy, which has a capacity to remove the symptoms of the ailment. For example, one of the remedies for allergic rhinitis is AILLUM CEPA (from Red Onions). This cures symptoms such as running nose with watering eyes which are similar to the effects one experiences while cutting red onions.

I have been taking some medication for my existing disease/s, (such as, for diabetes, hypertension, thyroid disease, etc.), should I continue them or stop?
You should continue your other medicines under the supervision of your regular doctor. You can continue taking homeopathic remedies along with your regular medication as the action of homeopathic remedies do not interfere with these.

As Homoeopathy treats the individual patient as a whole human being in context of the long term health and well being & even with conventional medicines , it is imperative that patients continue their medication which are acting on the physiological plane, but do so judiciously and under the guidance of experienced physicians.

I have started taking your homeopathic remedies. When do I expect improvement?
The time taken to initiate improvement after the homeopathic medicine depends on the following factors, in general:

  1. Duration of the illness (that it, for how long you have the problem.)
  2. Extent of the disease
  3. Reversibility of the diseases
  4. Reactivity of the patient that is how does the patient response to the medicine
  5. Patients’ general health

In acute conditions, the improvement sets in within 1-2 days. In general, one should expect improvement within two to four months in most of the chronic conditions.

What are the probable side effects of homeopathic medicines?
Homeopathic medicines you have received are absolutely harmless, totally non-toxic, free from any side effect whatsoever. It is extremely safe for children, during pregnancy, and for anyone, when prescribed as per the guidelines.

Do you suggest some specific diet to help the treatment?
There is no specific diet, which is required for the homeopathy to work. However, healthy diet is always suggested. Healthy diet is one, which is balanced in terms of essential ingredients, vitamins, minerals, etc. It is suggested in general to avoid junk food as much as possible.

Since all Homoeopathic remedies are absorbed from the tongue and buccal mucosa ( inner lining of the mouth ) -- which is abundantly supplied with nerve endings, it is advised to patients that they refrain from eating or drinking anything for at least 15 minutes before & after taking any food.

Also it is wiser to rinse one's mouth if one has eaten anything strong smelling such ar garlic onion etc. Excess of coffee, alcohol, tobacco are restricted ( as they are stimulants) especially in patients who are restless or anxious. If you have consumed any of these, wait for at least half an hour, rinse your mouth with water and then take the homeopathic pills.

Is it true that my problem will increase after taking the homeopathic remedies before I see improvement?
No, it is not true that the problem has to increase to get better.

What is the source of homeopathic remedies? How are they prepared?
In brief, the homeopathic remedies are prepared using a special technique called potentization, whereby an infinitesimal portion of the actual substance is diluted and shaken repeatedly to activate its healing powers. The major sources are plants, fruits, flowers, roots, animal products, mineral, certain metals, hormone, microorganisms, etc.

Do Homeopathic remedies contain steroids?
This is absolutely untrue. A good Homoeopathic prescription is geared towards stimulating and helping the body's defense system ( immune system ) and works as an immuno-modulator, giving results in acute cases as well. Homoeopathic remedies derived from the plant kingdom do have certain alkaloids that are as effective as steroids. These however ARE NOT STEROIDS & DO NOT GIVE RISE TO ANY STEROID LIKE SIDE EFFECTS.

Are homeopathic remedies very slow in action and of use only in chronic illness?
No in fact in acute situations eg. fevers, acute sore throats, injuries, burns, insect bites, diarrhea, headaches etc. homeopathic remedies can have quick miraculous results.
