Q And A
1) WHAT IS A DOSE?
One dose is generally considered to be - 1OR 2 tablets / 1 globule
For example, if my remedy is in globules and the directions say to take one dose 3 times a day, I will be taking 1 globule in the morning, 1 globule around noon, and 1 globule in the evening.
2) HOW TO TAKE A DOSE?
Do NOT touch the pills.
Drop 1 pill from the remedy bottle into the cap and pop it in your mouth, under the tongue.
For children, you can place the pill into a small piece of paper, then make it into a funnel and drop it in their mouths. Let the pills dissolve in the mouth completely.
Do not eat or drink anything before and after 10 min of taking the dose.
3) DO I NEED TO RESTRICT ANY FOOD ITEM WHILE ON HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT?
As homeopathy believes in individualization while selecting a remedy so the dietary restrictions also need to be individualized, keeping in mind the disease being treated, patient sensitivity, food habits and the remedy prescribed. Foods that aggravate or have a medicinal action similar to the remedy being prescribed may need to be avoided.
4) DO I NEED TO STOP THE MEDICINES PRESCRIBED BY MY DOCTOR?
No. you should not stop taking medicines prescribed by your doctor/primary physician. Homeopathy works alongside conventional medicine. It is not contraindicated.
5) IS IT SAFE TO TAKE HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT DURING PREGNANCY?
Yes. Homeopathy is safe for pregnant women. What is so remarkable and different about homeopathic remedies is that there is no possibility of negative side effects. This makes it especially valuable for pregnant women, new moms, babies, and children of all ages.
6) DOES HOMEOPATHY WORK FOR ACUTE CONDITIONS?
Yes. Homeopathy has wonderful remedies for acute conditions like fever, cough, cold, diarrhea, headaches etc.
7) WHAT ARE THE MEDICINES MADE FROM?
Homeopathic medicines are made from natural substances like tree roots, leaves, flowers, fruits or whole plants, animal discharges or minerals found in nature and are called remedies. Usually the natural substance is then ground with lactose or milk sugar. Remedies are prepared by homeopathic pharmacies in accordance with the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) and FDA-approved guidelines.
8) WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER THE HOMEOPATHY CONSULTATION?
Your health insurance may cover part or all of your visits to a homeopathic practitioner depending on your practitioner's health-care license or certification qualifications
and their participation with your insurance plan.
9) WHERE AND HOW TO STORE THE MEDICINES?
As far as possible, store all homeopathic remedies and essences in ‘neutral’ conditions away from bright light, strong smells, extremes of temperature, electrical equipment (e.g. fridges, televisions, music systems, microwaves etc.) and mobile phones.
10) HOW MANY SESSIONS I NEED TO COME FOR ?
This depends very much on what sort of illness you have, how long you have had it, and what your individual characteristics are (each case is different, and no two patients are alike). I will gauge your initial response to remedies and discuss a likely treatment plan with you.
