“REACTION TO NOTE AFTER TAKING YOUR HOMOEPATHIC REMEDY”
Please note that each individual responds to their prescribed remedy differently.
The effects are gentle and gradual, although sometimes, we see more rapid or dramatic changes, which is usually the case in Acute conditions/ailments.
The remedies act to improve your general state of health, so you should not be overly anxious if your local, minor symptoms do not change immediately.
Patience is necessary in homeopathic care.
Sometimes, temporary minor aggravations of symptoms or recurrences of previously experienced symptoms will occur.
Please note that these are not side effects of the remedy, but an indication that the body is responding to the stimulating effect the remedy has on the overall system.
Follow Up Appointment
“During the time you are taking the remedy, regular follow-up visits are strongly recommended to give me an idea of how things are progressing. Everything is important when you are on a remedy.”
Follow up appointment will help me assess your progress and evaluate your response to the remedy
Even when you are doing well or continuing to make progress, it is important to keep your follow-up appointment.
Follow up appointment will help nurture the healing process by keeping me up to date and help me assess whether any other change is needed in the remedy all together.
This is also a time to discuss things that happened during the “in between” of your appointments. If you kept notes during this time, the follow-up is the best time to share them.
Everything is important when you are on a remedy.
The reason the first appointment is so long is to give me a baseline from which to work with you, and each follow-up appointment will help me see your progress and decide whether or not your remedy should stay the same or needs to have some changes made to it.
The follow-up visits are scheduled at varying intervals or as needed. Usually, they are scheduled monthly and it also depends upon each person’s progress.
Once you are making steady progress on your remedy, your remedy will also help you resist disease in the future by increasing your resistance to emotional stress. Of course, diet and lifestyle must also be factored in to the equation.
Sometimes, a follow-up appointment seems unnecessary when we feel good and are making progress, as we are all used to the conventional idea of going to the doctor only when we are sick. However, those patients who return for their regularly scheduled follow-up appointments often have better results.
Although you may be taking homeopathic remedies and be under active care for as long as two years (sometimes more), it is important to keep in mind that the ultimate goal of homeopathic treatment is to reach a high level of health and allow our bodies to take care of its needs naturally without the crutch of constant allopathic care.
