So, you’ve had an initial consultation, taken your first remedy doses and are booked back in for your next appointment.
On of the astonishing things about Homeopathy is that after you have a remedy major and long standing things can change. And that can take some time.
* “I feel more like myself again”
Countless times a client has said “I didn’t even realise until I started talking with you again how much has changed. And I am feeling much more Me again, come back to myself”
Follow-up is a time I can check back with you about what you came for help with, the symptoms you experienced and
When things are going really well I might suggest just continuing with less frequent doses of the remedy or to wait for a while and see what continues to happen.
I will suggest we schedule to meet in a few months for a check in, see that things are still progressing well.
*“I feel worse and this thing I haven’t had for years has come back.”
So now I know you have responded to the remedy which is great to know.
The return of a symptom such as a pain, a skin rash and feeling can be a sign your body and vital force are responding and clearing. If you feel worse and that hasn’t resolved it shows me I may need to change the remedy at this point, and the way you are now can show me more clearly what that is.
*”I’m not really sure”
Sometimes much more subtle shifts are starting to happen. It’s great to reflect on those and clarify if this is still the best remedy for you, or that things have moved to a different picture and a new remedy is better indicated.
*”Nothing has happened”
And sometimes indeed nothing has happened.
Then I really want to spend time with you exploring this. You may have some new symptoms, the symptoms you came with may be clearer, I want to see and understand more fully how you are and what remedy is needed now.
As your homeopath, these subsequent consults are a vital part of the way I can help you in moving towards long-term deeper health and well-being to the best of my evolving knowledge and skills.
I am always happy to talk with you about what I see happening, what I’m doing and why. Please just ask !
My colleague Pat Deacon puts this so well. Here’s a link to her blog post, shared with her permission. Thank you !
