Practical Homeopathy® has an extremely high success rate, but it does take time and patience. Depending on what issues a person wants to focus on, they may be on various protocols for a year or more.
Fortunately, remedies are inexpensive, especially when compared to supplements and allopathic medicines.
Practical Homeopathy® In Practice
Practical Homeopathy® works in layers. Initially, clients come in and we address the health issues that are most pressing first. Generally, there is a maximum of five issues that we would address at once. This can vary, however, as many issues are overlapping. After 8 weeks of the protocols, we reassess based on progression.
Improvement/progression can be measured by:
- the client is having the issues less often
- the episodes are of a shorter duration
- there is less severity to the issue
Often there will be a three-jumps-forward, one-step-back cadence to healing. We continue to monitor progression until the client’s issues are resolved or are comfortable enough that they are ready to focus on another health concern.
During the time the client is on the protocols, if an acute situation comes up such as the flu or a headache, it is best if we address that homeopathically instead of using OTC or prescription medications. If the use of those meds cannot be avoided, we can still continue the protocols, however, it is possible that their use may slow down the progress and/or cause regression. For this reason, it is best if you have a well-rounded homeopathy kit at home so that you are ready to address these acute situations homeopathically.
How Practical Homeopathy® Works
First, we do an initial interview and assess the severity of your health complaints.
Then, I build your protocol schedule. We book a follow-up session for about 8 weeks from the day you start of your first protocols.
During the protocols, we keep in touch via email between appointments in case there are acute issues that come up. I am not “on-call” in the way that an ER physician is, but I am happy to help you choose your acute remedies during office hours.
Occasionally, there will be an aggravation. This just means that temporarily the symptoms will get worse before they get better and is a good sign that healing is taking place. Aggravations are generally anywhere from a few hours to a couple of days depending on the ailment and the person.
Next, we have the follow-up appointment where we assess the progression and make adjustments to the protocols. Generally, we will book another session in 8 weeks to reassess.
Finally, when the client’s initial health issues are at a comfortable place, we can then begin working on the next layer of health issues troubling them.
How long will it take to feel better?
This will, of course, vary from person to person. Children tend to have their issues resolved more quickly than adults.
Issues that are long-standing tend to take longer to resolve than issues that have only been going on for months or a couple of years. Most people with long-standing health issues will need about a year to get their initial health complaints resolved. Sometimes it happens much more quickly, but there are no time guarantees as every person’s situation is unique.
