What to expect from the homeopathic online consultation.

Have you thought about booking an online homeopathic consultation, but not sure what to expect?

If you have ever attended a video conference call before, you will be familiar with how this type of meeting works. An online homeopathic virtual consultation with me is very similar. Once you have booked your consultation, whether a 15 minute complimentary meeting, or your first full consultation, I will contact you to enquire about your preference, Skype or Zoom video call, and provide you with the appropriate information to connect at your scheduled time. Now we’re all set to meet.

 

Consultation from home; convenient and comfortable. 

Many find seeing a medical professional from the comfort of their own home both convenient and comfortable. Parents often find it easy to connect with me from their home, whether it is an appointment for one of the kids or for themselves. I have patients who suffer from health issues that makes it challenging for them to leave their home. Some suffer with severe anxiety, OCD, ADHD, behavioral problems, paranoia and other mental and emotional issues, making online consultations more manageable than having to travel to get the help they need. Teens and young adults often prefer to talk to me online, feeling safe and less vulnerable in their own environment, especially when talking about topics that can feel difficult to share.

The first consultation with me is between 1,5 to 2 hours long. I will take detailed notes of your main complaint (the reason why you are contacting me), as well as ask you questions about other aspects of your current health and general health history. Homeopathy’s approach to health and healing is holistic; meaning that we consider the whole persons mental, emotional and physical characteristics when prescribing the best matching homeopathic medicine for the individual.

 

Some areas I ask about:

  • The onset of the health problem, looking at potential cause
  • Other co-existing health issues
  • Any previous treatment you have had for this and other health issues
  • Other medications you are taking or have been taking
  • How the health issue(s) affects you mentally, emotionally and physically
  • Sleep, appetite (including food and drink preferences), diet, body temperature (tendency to feel warm or chilly), stress level, physical activity level, how you experience your energy level, fears and worry’s

In addition, when treating young children, observation of behavior and personality can be very helpful when the child is available to be present for part of the consultation.

This ‘detective work’; gathering as many details as I can about your overall state of health, is imperative in choosing the best matching homeopathic remedy in each individual case. Homeopathic treatment is tailored made to fit you and your unique set of symptoms and how they present for you.

 

The homeopathic remedies and what happens after the consultation

When the consultation is over, I study and analyse the information gathered, before the first prescription is made. Once I have decided on the remedy, I email the prescription with detailed information on how and where to order/purchase the remedy, as well as instructions on how to take the remedy. A suggested time for the first follow-up appointment will be included in the prescription email. Follow-up appointments are 30 minutes long and are an important part of your treatment plan. This is where we discuss what you have experienced since you started taking the remedy, and make a plan for the weeks ad months ahead. Follow-up appointments are generally scheduled 4-6 weeks apart for the first few months, eventually less frequent as your health improves.

Homeopathic remedies come in pill, granule or liquid form. They have in common that they are easy to take for people of any age, gentle and safe, even for babies and pregnant women. The remedies are tasteless (great for children – no yuckies), they can be taken alongside other medications you may be on (no interactions) and are free of any side effects.
