In a homeopathic consultation the patient and the homeopath focus on the symptoms the patient finds detrimental to their health and sense of well-being. The homeopath observes and listens carefully as the patient describes their symptoms. The homeopath asks questions about the patient’s lifestyle and general state of health. Identifying the remedy that most appropriately matches both the particular patient’s symptoms and general state of health is the goal of the consultation.

This initial consultation lasts an hour and a half to two hours. It is usually followed by a 45 minute to an hour session four to six weeks later. Between the two sessions the patient should record changes and improvements. This will help the homeopath assess any modifications that need to be made to the treatment plan. Patients are encouraged to use email, voicemail or phone conversations to keep the homeopath updated. In the follow-up appointment the homeopath assesses any changes in health to determine the degree of improvement. Using this information the homeopath draws up a plan for the patient’s ongoing treatment.
