FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ABOUT HOMEOPATHIC TREATMENT

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of medicine that works by stimulating the body’s own healing mechanism. It was discovered by Samual Hahnemann, a German medical practitioner in 1796. Homeopathy is based on the principle of ‘like cures like‘, an idea discussed by healers such as Paracelsus and Hippocrates.

Homeopaths draw from a growing Materia Medica of over 4000 remedies, prepared from plants, animals, minerals and even the products of some disease. The medicines are prepared in a very  unique way, and according to very strict clinical guidelines. Homeopathy employs the concept of the ‘minimum dose’ and so the remedies do not produce side effects.. 

The remedy provides what could be thought of as a blue print, or energetic map of what the body is dealing with, almost like holding a mirror up so it can be perceived clearly. This stimulates the vital force (immune system) with the information it needs for the body to mount its own intelligent response and overcome the picture of dis-ease or illness being experienced.

Homeopathy is holistic. This means, due to its capacity to stimulate the body’s own intrinsic and intelligent healing mechanism, patients do not become dependent on homeopathic medicines. Instead, they require less over time as the bodies vital force is restored and brought back into balance.

What can I see a homeopath for?

Homeopthy does not treat individual conditions, it treats the whole person. In fact, you do not need a diagnosis to see a homeopath because we treat based on your unique and individual presentation of symptoms.

In saying that, homeopathy can assist people suffering from a large and varied array of both acute and chronic conditions from the purely physical through to the mental and emotional sphere (and it’s usually a combination of both).

Homeopathy is regularly used to help people presenting with:

  • Skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis
  • Recurring headaches or migraines
  • Musculoskeletal complaints such as arthritis
  • Digestive complaints including symptoms of IBS, Chrohn’s disease etc. 
  • Allergies (hay fever & food allergies)
  • Asthma & other respiratory conditions
  • Anxiety & depression
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Behavioural disorders
  • Ear, nose & throat infections
  • High/low blood pressure
  • ASD, ADD, ADHD, ODD
  • And much more

Homeopathy treats the whole person and whilst a patient may seek out homeopathic treatment for a singular condition, patients often find they feel a greater sense of wellbeing in general and other symptoms they are experiencing are also improved.

What does treatment involve?

Upon booking you will be asked to complete a detailed intake form. Please allow yourself some time to give your full attention to this process.  

The initial consult takes between 60-90 mins. The questions I ask you may seem a lot more detailed & specific than you are used to answering in a traditional health consult. Rest assured these details help me to arrive at a remedy that is suited to your unique constitution & presentation.

I generally take a few days to review your case after which a treatment approach will be decided upon and communicated with you. You can pick up your remedies from the clinic or your remedy will be posted to you.

Remedies are usually dispensed in liquid form (for constitutional treatment) or occasionally as small medicated pillules. You will be provided detailed instructions on how & when to take your remedy and I generally check in with patients roughly a week into treatment to see if the dosage needs adjusting, based on their initial response. 

A follow up appointment will be scheduled at the end of each consultation (generally for 3-4 weeks apart) for the ongoing management of the case until the complaint has resolved. 

How many sessions will I need?

Just like the conditions people are presenting with in clinic, every case is different.

It’s important that if you are going to invest your time and money in homeopathic tretament, you commit to the process.

Long standing chronic health complaints take time to heal. They are often complex in nature due to multiple compounding factors such as emotional & environmental stressors, effects of pharmaceuticals, genetic inheritance and suppression (just to name a few). For this reason, case management for chronic health complaints often involves a number of different remedies & approaches over time.

I like to encourage clients to plan and budget for at least 3-5 sessions (roughly four weeks apart) for constitutional treatment. During that time you should be seeing more than enough improvement to continue with treatment IF ongoing treatment is necessary. As treatment progresses, it is common for consultations to be scheduled much further apart. It is always at the patients discretion to discontinue treatment at any time.

There are plenty of cases that have been resolved with one remedy over just one consult which is wonderful! As homeopaths we always strive for the most rapid, gentle and effective treatment we can, however these kind of results are the exception not the rule and often with simple straight forward complaints that have only just moved from the acute stage to the chronic. 

Does my child need to be present during their consult?

The ideal is that your child is present for some of the homeopathic consult and then able to sit outside of the consultation room or (go off to the park near the clinic with another care provider) for the rest of the consultation.

Due to the individual nature of homeopathic treatment, it is extremely helpful if we can observe and interract with the child for at least 15-20 minutes during the consult. Then, depending on their age, have them not present so we are free to discuss their health history and any information that may feel sensitive to discuss in front of them.

As children mature however it is more and more important that we can talk directly with the child and come to understand their experience as opposed to your interpretation of their experience.

In all instances it is important that you do not answer for your child, nor prompt them if they are able to answer for themselves. Even if you believe the child is giving incorrect answers – the way they perceive their experience is what is most important to us as homeopaths.

What kind of homeopath are you?

Like most homeopaths I am classically trained. I completed my training over 5 years at Nature Care College back in 2012.

Whilst being classically trained, I am not dogmatic to a classical approach, which is about giving a patient one constittional remedy to match their entire picture. I became a homeopath to help people heal, not to be a classical homeopath. I employ a number of different approaches depending on the person sitting before me.

A classical approach is the highest ideal and what most homeopaths including myself strive for and yet, it doesn’t always work.

I draw from and emply various treatment methodologies including (but not limited to) Homeopathic Detox Therapy or polypharmacy, organopathy, miasmatic prescribing, Sankaran method, Vannier approach and develop treatment protocols based on what the individual patient in front of me requires at the time.

 

What do you specialise in?

I love the variety of treating all different types of complaints and seeing all different types of people. So I don’t limit my practice to any one area. 

In saying that, the universe seems to have selected the specialty of Autism Spectrum Disorder, PANDA’s and behavioural complaints like ADD, ADHD and ODD for me. 

I consider it an honour to support families who have kids with special needs because I get to see first hand just how full the parents plates are and just how much of an impact it can have when they start seeing results. 

What kind of research is there in support of Homeopathy?

These days… quite a lot! For a long time it was very hard to obtain good quality research in support of homeopathy. This is for two reasons.

1. Homeopathy is individualised: You could have ten people all suffering with Otitis Media (for example) and all ten of those people could require a different remedy. This means that trials cannot be conducted in the same way as standard drug trials whereby one remedy/medication is given to every participant for the same condition..

2. Lack of funding: Homeopathic remedies cannot be patented and the industry does not have the same kind of financial collateral nor incentive to fund large scale trials.

We have come a long way though and there are a lot of groups and organisations dedicated to bringing quality homeopathic research to the world. The Homeopathic Research Institute is dedicated to collecting  and promoting high quality research in homeopathy at an International Level. I highly recommend visiting their site and looking at their resources to learn more about the latest research in the field.

We used Kelly’s knowledge and services to help my daughter heal from a long battle with severe vomiting. She was completely present, extremely knowledgeable with amazing communication, and after one dose and a couple of days my daughter had her first vomit free 24 hours!

I feel really confident and safe using Kelly and I am excited to take a step back from the pharmaceuticals as they haven’t worked for us in the 8 months we have been trying to help my daughter. I will be using Kelly’s services again for both of my girls to help with their immune system! Cannot recommend her enough!

Rebekah Bartsch

I can’t recommend Kelly’s knowledge and support through homeopathy enough. I was struggling with a consistent/chronic cough and throat strain for months, and didn’t want to continue using medication that would mask symptoms only for them to return without them.

My consult with Kelly was so thorough and was already impressed with her attentiveness to whole self health – and glad to have invested in this rather than a 2 min consult with a GP with lack of care. I felt immediate relief of symptoms with homeopathic treatment Kelly provided, within a few days my usual symptoms were non existent. I would absolutely go to see her for any other health issue I can’t heal myself, and highly recommend to others.

Homeopathy cures a greater percentage of cases than any other method of treatment. Homeopathy is the latest and refined method of treating patients economically and non-violently.
