Homeopathy Frequently Asked Questions
What exactly IS a homeopathic remedy?
Homeopathic remedies are taken as small pellets or liquid drops. They are extremely diluted preparations of substances ranging from minerals (like silica or gold) to plants (like chamomile or belladonna) to animal products (like snake venom or honeybee). Even though some homeopathic remedies are made from poisonous substances, they are diluted to a point that they are safe for people of all ages and levels of health.
What can I expect at a homeopathic appointment?
Homeopathic remedies are recommended based on your unique set of symptoms. That means that five different people with sleep problems would need five different remedies. Because homeopathy is so specific, Dr. Amerine will ask a long list of questions to figure out the best remedy for you. If you struggle with stress and anxiety, for example, she will also ask you questions about your digestive health, skin health, and more. Homeopathic appointments are longer than other appointments because it takes time to understand you as a whole person.
How does homeopathy work?
This is one of the most frequent questions we get and one of the most challenging to answer! Homeopathic remedies work on an energetic level to stimulate the body’s own ability to heal. Because it is your own body that is doing the healing, the results are longer lasting than with most other approaches to medicine.
How will I know if the remedy is working?
When a remedy is “working,” we say that a patient is “reacting positively” to a remedy. That’s because it is your own body doing the healing. Every patient is unique, but most patients experience an overall better sense of well being, along with improvements in their symptoms. Sometimes people experience a limited period of time where they feel worse before they feel better. This is usually a good sign that you are reacting positively to a homeopathic remedy.
Will the homeopathic remedy interact with my medications?
Because homeopathic remedies are prepared in such extreme dilutions, they do not have any interactions or contraindications with food or medications.
Why don't I have to take my homeopathic remedy every day?
Homeopathic remedies work by stimulating your own body’s ability to heal. When you take a remedy, your body reacts to that remedy. The length of time that your body continues to react positively to a remedy depends on many factors. Some people do take a homeopathic remedy every day, while others can continue to experience positive improvements for months after taking a single dose.
