What Can I Expect During My First Consultation With a Homeopathic Doctor?

The homeopathic interview is unlike any interview in the rest of medicine.  You will find your homeopath knows how to listen and knows how to ask questions.  You will be encouraged to speak at length about your problems, and he or she will ask you further questions about many aspects of your life, including:

  • How you react to temperature and weather
  • Whether you are on the chilly or warm side
  • How you react to drafts and wind
  • Your perspiration patterns
  • Your sleep abnormalities and your dreams
  • Your appetite, including the foods you crave and dislike

In other words, your homeopath will ask about how you react to just about everything in your environment.

You will be encouraged to express your hopes and fears, worries and anxieties, tendency to anger, depression, and grief.  Your homeopath will ask you about your hobbies and interests, work situation, and your family situation (both the family you grew up in and your present family).   Everything about you is important.  Together, this information builds a composite picture of you and will lead to the correct prescription.

You will then be given a homeopathic medicine.  It might be in the form of a drop of liquid or a few granules or pellets of sugar which have been medicated.  These will be placed on your tongue and allowed to dissolve.  You may or may not be given some pellets or tablets to take with you. Some homeopaths give the medicine in water, a very effective, gentle method.
