Treatment Procedure at Our Clinic
We work in the same way as conventional doctors do. History taking, examination and investigation are all important in establishing the diagnosis. However, as well as asking about your symptoms, we will be interested in you as an individual and the unique way in which your symptoms affect you.
Questions about your lifestyle, eating habits and preferences, temperament, personality, sleep patterns and medical history help us to form a complete picture of you. This picture will be matched to the symptoms of your illness in order to prescribe a particular type and strength of homeopathic medicine.
As a guide your first appointment could take anything up to 20 minutes, with follow-up appointments typically lasting 10 minutes.
Preparing for your appointment
To get the most out of a consultation, it is helpful to make some notes beforehand and to think through all the issues that are affecting your health.
At the end of the consultation we will give you a prescription and advise you how often to take the medicine. Homeopathy is usually taken in tablet or pillule form, but is also available in liquid and powder form. Homeopathic gels or cream may also be prescribed for some conditions.
Our medicines are manufactured by repeatedly diluting and succussing (shaking) a preparation of the original substance, mainly plants and minerals, in water and alcohol. After dilution the medicine is added to lactose tablets or pillules.
