First and foremost our clinic focus is to provide homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy is very powerful and works at a cellular level to bring about healing on a deep level. Homeopathy can be effective in treating virtually any health issue – whether physical, mental or emotional. It can produce dramatic improvement in acute conditions and can be particularly useful in deep-seated chronic conditions. Conditions may include, joint pain, chronic pain, migraines, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, menopause, PMS, fibroids, endometriosis, thyroid disorders, infertility, insomnia, sleep concerns constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, IBS, Crohn’s, Colitis, heartburn and indigestion, anxiety, depression, stress, fears, lack of confidence, mood disorders, addictions, ADD/ADHD, temper tantrums, teething problems, bedwetting, night terrors, asthma, allergies, eczema, psoriasis, acne, autoimmune disease, MS, Parkinson’s, infections, coughs, colds, flu’s and much more. Remember that homeopathy is treating the individual that has the disease, not the disease and therefore it can help with any health condition. However, reality is that we live in a world where our soils are depleted of vital minerals, we breathe in and are exposed to toxins on a daily basis and we live in a society where eating processed foods has become the norm. This can create what we refer to in homeopathy as ‘obstacles to cure’. We then sometimes need to look at testing to determine if there is some food intolerance, imbalance in the blood work or metal toxicity or mineral imbalance in the body to determine healing blockages. Therefore, we have several different tests available to our homeopathic patients to help them discover and pinpoint imbalances in the body.
Homeopathy can be effective in treating acute conditions as well as deep seated chronic conditions – regardless of whether the origin is physical, mental or emotional. This is because homeopathy treats the person with the disease.
LifeLabs Blood Work
We can provide our homeopathic patients with blood work requisitions which is a great tool for getting insights on where there are imbalances to improve understanding of your health condition.
RMA FST™ IgG Food Sensitivity Testing
Food sensitivies may play a role in your health condition. Foods can worsen disease symptoms and cause inflammation. Often these are foods that are considered healthy for most people but doesn’t do well for the individual person. Common food sensitivities are wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs and soy. The IgG Food Sensitivity test can pinpoint up to 222 diferent trigger foods.
Hair Toxic Elements and Mineral testing
We can do hair testing to identify heavy metal toxicity and mineral imbalances in the body. This test can be helpful to determine detoxes and supplementation that may be right for the individual patient. The test is through Doctor’s Data using the Dr. Andrew Cutler method.
The Homeopathic Process
The initial consultation is about two hours long. During the consultation the homeopath seeks to gather all the symptoms that the patient experiences. All of the symptoms that the body produces is the language that your body uses to tell you something is wrong. No two persons react alike in sickness. Though several people may have the same complaint and the same disease label, the symptoms of one patient differ from the symptoms of all others. This individuality is what the homeopath seeks to discover in a consult. Discussions are mainly led by the patient and can include information on childhood, day-to-day life, mental and emotional symptoms, physical symptoms, food likes and dislikes, dreams and more.
After the consultation the homeopath will take some time to select a homeopathic medicine that matches the individual case. There are over 3000 homeopathic remedies which are made up of either plant, mineral or animal substances. When the homeopath selects a medicine it will match the patient’s mental and emotional symptoms as well as the physical symptoms. Typically the medicine comes in the form of pellets that are disolved under the tongue, but can also come in other forms depending on the individual case. Homeopathic medicine is safe for all ages including babies, pregnant mothers and the elderly. It is gentle and non-invasive, produces no toxic side effects, no dependency and no withdrawal.
A follow-up appointment is typically booked four weeks after starting the homeopathic medicine. After which, they range from every 4 weeks to every 3 or 6 months, depending on the individual case. Follow-ups are important for long term benefit of the patient. Especially in chronic conditions, patients need to return for several follow-ups to see long term benefits. Homeopathic medicine can act quickly but it is important to have the follow-ups so the homeopath can continue to assess and adjust the medicine as needed. Think of homeopathy as a choice of medical treatment that you adopt as a lifestyle. In the long run you will be ill less often and over a period of time will be less prone to stress and feel healthier overall.
