"I know there is something not quite right!"
As a holistic practitioner and homeopath I will always work with a person who has the 'feeling' that something is off or who does not feel well. It is not necessary to have referrals or diagnosis.
What to expect?
An initial case taking session usually lasts one to one and a half hours and includes a full health history form you complete beforehand. The session is to go over your concerns, and what you would like to be addressed currently.
As well as suggesting homeopathic remedies, other methods are available to improve one's health such as meditation, body awareness, lifestyle changes and various naturopathic supports. Regardless of the direction taken, with holistic treatment you direct the process, and the support needed for that direction is provided by the practitioner.
How long will the whole process take?
This can depend on how long you have felt unwell or 'off,' and whether there are physical symptoms or functional changes within the body and for how long. Some issues may be resolved in a matter of days, others may take some months and the most serious of cases might take longer.
How often are appointments?
Usually one to two sessions to explore the best course of action and then follow up sessions. In some cases, weekly or bimonthly sessions are suggested. When a healthy state is regained, sessions can be once in a while to check in or whenever a healing crisis occurs and the client would like further support.
Are there side-effects?
Since homeopathic remedies (and some of the supports) are not chemically based, there is no forcing, stopping or suppressing of natural processes to make changes happen. Often a remedy is only taken once to provide the necessary signal and the body does the rest naturally. This means there are no side effects and the approach supports the body to heal and restore healthy functions naturally.
Who can try homeopathy?
Homeopathy is safe for everyone. A homeopathic remedy as well as many of the suggested supports can be taken by children, babies, pregnant women, adults of any age, and by those currently taking pharmaceutical medications or undergoing medical treatments.
The Three Branches of Western Healing
These three approaches are best used conjointly and collaboratively. All three branches used together provide a more comprehensive system to support health and are the basis of a holistic treatment. My training focuses on the first and second branch and working with other professionals specializing in the third branch.
The MICH Method offers an approach for improving health based on holistic principles. Everyone experiences their illness differently and therefore the process is not determined by just symptoms or pathology, but also by the unique understanding of the person that is explored during each session. "The role of the homeopath is to guide you through a discovery of your deepest inner nature which focuses on the energetic roots of your problem or challenge. Through an exploration of your experience and of your symptoms, the process brings to light recurrent psycho-emotional themes. This unique method of homeopathic practice addresses a wide range of both severe acute and chronic disorders that are mental, physical, or emotional in nature."
Soul level Homeopathy. Learning from the current masters of Homeopathy around the world and keeping up to date with the latest developments and methods is part of the legacy of my training at MICH. The Sensation method of Sankaran is well known and part of my tool box, as well as the lesser known Soul methods of Loutan and Vermeulen. The soul is the centre of our being and to be able to match a remedy to that level is a very valuable experience as healing then radiates outwards to every part of our being and lives!
