FAQs About Homeopathy

Here’s the truth: Homeopathy was widely practiced by doctors in this country long before high-tech, high-intensity, high-cost medical business emerged.  Homeopathy is making a world-wide come-back.  It is widely practiced in Europe, South America, and India.  Homeopathy is effective, safe, affordable…and there are no side effects.  Homeopathy shines in healing many chronic diseases that are not cured by prescription drugs.  Safe, effective medicine should be the first choice for your family.

“Homeopathy is too expensive for me.”
Your first consultation with a homeopath is the most expensive, because we spend up to 2 hours getting to know you and understanding your health challenges. Your remedies are either included in the cost of the visit or require a small additional charge of usually $15 to $25. You will not need to come in often. The typical follow-up schedule is every 4 to 6 weeks until a positive result is obtained. After that, visits are less frequent depending on your condition.

“Homeopathic remedies won’t work with my prescription medications.”
Homeopathic remedies will not interfere with your regular medications. Dr. B will work with you even though you may be on several medications. Dr. B does not recommend you stop your prescription drugs, but asks that you don’t start any new prescriptions without consulting her. Many people come to homeopathic treatment to “get off” their drugs. This is certainly a worthy goal and sometimes can be accomplished. Prescription drugs can sometimes interfere with our homeopathic remedies, so a different liquid potency may be recommended.

“I’ll have to stop seeing my primary care doctor.”

No, actually, we prefer that you keep your current doctor. If you are taking medications, your doctor will need to supervise whether to decrease or discontinue using them as your health improves.

“My insurance won’t pay for homeopathy.”
If you have a PPO and can see “out of network” doctors, we will give you an appropriate statement with the necessary codes to file your own insurance. Because Dr. B is a medical doctor, you may receive some reimbursement of the fees, depending on the type of insurance plan you have. Contact your insurance company for more details.

 “I tried using homeopathic remedies I purchased from a health food store, and they didn’t help.”
Although many people benefit from self-prescribing for conditions like infections, the flu, and an injury, it’s important to consult with a professionally trained homeopath if you have a chronic condition. Homeopathy can be confusing to an untrained person. But once you’re under the care of a skilled, compassionate homeopathic doctor, you’ll be amazed how fast you will grasp the concepts.

“My condition has been going on for too long – homeopathy can’t help me.”
It’s true that the longer you have been experiencing a particular condition, the longer it may take to begin healing. After your first visit, we can determine a realistic and optimistic roadmap for recovery.

“I’ve heard you can get worse before you get better.”
After you receive a homeopathic remedy, you may experience a temporary flare-up of your condition. This is called an aggravation, and it’s actually a good sign the remedy is working! Aggravations of older symptoms may flare up, but they too are usually less intense and of shorter duration. So while some would interpret this healing process as a worsening effect, it’s actually the beginning of healing on a deeper level than traditional medicine provides. Trusting the healing process will enable your strongest recovery.
