The homeopathic interview is a thorough investigation into the state of your health. A detailed understanding is needed of you as a whole person. How you express illness and health, respond to the environment, and generally experience life is very important from a homeopathic perspective. We (homeopaths) also consider your and your family's medical and emotional history in determining your constitutional susceptibilities and sensitivities. As you might imagine, this kind of indepth interview takes a fair amount of time. We generally allow an hour and a half to accomplish this, but will take as much time as needed to feel we have reached a clear understanding of you as a person.
After the interview, we compare what we have learned about you with what we know of the homeopathic medicines and reflect, research and select the remedy and the potency that corresponds to your individual constitution. There may also be simple dietary or lifestyle adjustments suggested as part of the treatment plan.
At the 3 to 6 week point we have our first follow up appointment to evaluate the action of the remedy and to fine tune the treatment. Jackie is available for questions and clarifications before the follow up if needed
Follow up appointments are approximately 30 to 45 minutes long and are scheduled monthly, reducing in frequency as you become healthier.
Acute and first aid appointments are scheduled as needed.
