Services & Info
An interview with a classical homeopath takes anywhere from 20 minutes to 2 hours, depending on if your complaint is acute or chronic, and if it is your initial appointment, or a follow-up. You will be asked in detail about your main complaint(s), your physical, mental and emotional health, your health history and yourself in general!
In some cases, a homeopathic remedy will be given to you immediately, but more commonly, your homeopath will take additional time after your meeting to study your case and will provide you with a remedy at a later date.
Your homeopath will generally ask to see you 4-6 weeks after the initial appointment, and quarterly thereafter. Follow-up appointments are very important in order to assess your reaction to the homeopathic remedy and it’s effectiveness and to know how often to repeat or alter your remedy.
What is a Homeopathic remedy?
Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals. Each remedy is prepared by a homeopathic pharmacy in compliance with the Homoeopathic Pharmacopoea. The substance taken from nature is then processed through a series of dilution and succussion. Homeopathic remedies are often formulated as a liquid and then further administered on lactose sugar pellets. The sugar pellet is then taken under the tongue; homeopathic remedies may also be prepared in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets.
Homeopathic treatments are covered by some insurance programs. Some of those programs are:
(CSH recognized plans: Claim Secure, Green Shield, Medavie BlueCross, Manulife, Pacific Blue Cross, and SunLife)
Please check with your employer for details on your coverage. If your employer does not currently cover homeopathic treatment please inform them that you would like to see homeopathic treatments covered by your insurance plan. Homeopathic treatment is one of the most cost effective medical treatments available.
