The First Consultation

For the initial consultation, you will need to allow about 1 - 1.5 hours. During this time some of the things that may be discussed in detail are as follows:

 

 

 

Medical history (and family medical history) & current medications, supplements etc

 

 

General health overview

 

 

Lifestyle habits including diet and exercise

 

 

 

Presenting symptoms, relating to all symptoms of body, mind and emotions. Lots of detail is required regarding these including:

- Concomitant symptoms, i.e., various symptoms that appear together. For example, nausea and belching when eating

- Location of the symptoms, for example, which side of the body is affected, extensions to other parts (e.g. sciatica pains that extend from hip to calf muscle)

- Things that generally make the symptoms feel better or worse, for example, a brisk walk may alleviate arthritic pain

- Any sensations experienced with your symptoms. For example, burning pains in legs while standing

- Time of the day that the symptoms are generally better or worse

- Rare or peculiar symptoms

 

 

Food desires and/or aversions, allergies and intolerances

 

 

 

Your reaction to stresses in your life, i.e. in work, family and other relationships

 

 

 

Issues that may affect your feelings, weaknesses, needs, sensitivities etc.

 

 

 

Your moods incl. triggers, frequency of swings, reactions etc.

 

 

 

Fears

 

 

 

Likes, dislikes, social preferences etc

 

 

 

Thirst response

 

 

 

Sleeping patterns and dreams

 

 

 

Energy levels

 

 

 

Temperature and weather sensitivities

 

Follow-up Consultations

Clients normally need to return 2-4 weeks after the first consultation. Follow up consultations normally take about half an hour. During this time:

The case is reassessed with attention paid to how the client responded to any medicines previously prescribed and progress made. Often new remedies or medicines are required.

The opportunity may be used to assess lifestyle issues, particularly in relation to diet and exercise and to discuss any ongoing treatment plans.

Homoeopathic remedies are prescribed singularly, i.e. the client is prescribed the single remedy that the practitioner believes best suits your individual state of health. It is extremely unlikely that homoeopathic medicines will interact with other medications. If a homoeopathic remedy is deemed necessary, it will either be given to you following the consultation or posted to you within a few days. Herbal medicines are normally prescribed in the liquid form and a prescription of 4-6 medicines is normally given.

“If one way be better than another, that you may be sure is Nature’s way”. Aristotle, “Nichomachean Ethics”
