What is Homeopathy?
Homeopathy is the natural method of treating ailments with carefully measured doses of substances that come from the natural world. Dr. Samuel Hahnemman discovered homeopathy over 200 years ago. In summary, homeopathy’s guiding principle is: “Like cures like.” Hahnemman theorized that any symptom could be treated with the same substances that caused those same symptoms to appear in healthy people. Homeopathy — derived from the Greek words meaning “similar” and “disease” — uses substances that support those symptoms in an effort to encourage the body to cure itself over time Instead of suppressing symptoms. In the ensuing years and especially in the 20th Century, homeopathy had become an integral part of mainstream European medicine and is used widely throughout the world. It’s also the preferred medical treatment of the royal family of Great Britain.
What should I expect when I visit a homeopath?
A homeopathy session is a little different than a traditional doctor visit since homeopathic practitioners are trained to view and understand their patients holistically. An initial intake session patients are encouraged to discuss anything in their lives that might be related to the illness they are experiencing. This is important as the success of a homeopathic treatment depends this communication and on the practitioner’s ability to prescribe the right remedy given the unique group of symptoms. Additionally, It also depends on the skill of the homeopathic practitioner, the severity and duration of the illness, and the extent of the effect of prior suppressive treatment. While homeopathic treatment is not a remedy for every ailment, by using this natural approach it can often help improve a patient’s physical, mental, and emotional overall well-being.
Keren’s guiding philosophy about homeopathy is that successful treatment requires a partnership between the homeopathic practitioner and the patient. In intake sessions she encourages openness and candor from her patients, in an environment she works hard to maintain warm and judgment-free. During treatment, Keren offers follow-up visits designed to fine-tune dosing, adjust plans if new symptoms arise, and closely monitor the progression of the patient’s treatment.
