Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly will I get better?
This depends on a number of factors…if it is a first aid condition, such as a minor burn or an acute such as a tummy bug, you should feel better within an hour or two. If it is a chronic condition that you have had for several years, treatment will be longer. Don’t forget with Homeopathy we are looking at the underlying cause of the condition as well as alleviating the symptoms, so a chronic condition will take longer.
Can homeopathy help in first aid conditions?
Absolutely, it is ideal in these situations, this is why it is a good idea once you have started treatment to have a homeopathic first aid remedy kit in case the need arises. In a first aid situation, or an acute that comes on quickly over the weekend, homeopathy can be invaluable. For example, it can help with bumps, bruises, blisters, bites and stings, burns (minor), falls, shock, strains, sprains, sun-burn, toothache, sudden earaches from being out in the wind and tummy bugs. Do always consult your GP/hospital if the condition is serious.
What happens if my children are ill at the weekend or out of hours?
I am on a weekend locum rota list and, if I am not on call, one of my colleagues will be able to help you. Emergencies or acutes that can’t wait are dealt with out of hours (after 6pm and evenings). Again this is why it is a good idea to have a homeopathic first aid remedy kit…so if your child develops a fever, earache, croupy cough or a sickness bug and you have the remedy at hand, treatment can start straight away.
How many appointments will I need?
This depends on the severity of your condition, how long it has been treated with conventional medicine and your response to the remedies. Once the condition has improved some patients stop treatment, others come on a less frequent basis to maintain their health and general well-being.
Will homeopathy interfere with conventional medicine?
Homeopathy works well along side conventional/allopathic medicine. Some patients wish to use homeopathy as a means of reducing/withdrawing their medication...this must however be discussed with their GP. Any diagnosis or blood test results can be of the utmost importance to a homeopath.
Any views or advice on this website should not be taken as a substitute for medical advice or consulting a homeopath in person especially if the patient has a specific health complaint.
