What price homeopathy? Priceless, we say.
Consider the following questions first, then read on to see what homeopathy offers in a consultation and its contribution to your ongoing health.
Cost compared with what, a doctor’s visit? How much do you value your health? How connected do you feel to your regular caregiver? How much listening do they do? How quickly does your health recover? Is the underlying cause being addressed or are the symptoms being medicated?
Homeopathic consultations involve careful, lengthy case-taking, and lots of detailed questions! This is important so that I can develop an impression of the symptoms the patient is experiencing, and the overall constitution of the person. For this reason, a first consultation with me takes 1 1/2 hours, and follow-up consultations take about 1 hour!
This is quite unusual compared with the usual visits to a doctors clinic where time is often very short and questions often seem routine and general.
For homeopathy, questions that may seem strange to the uninitiated are actually quite significant for diagnosing a remedy. Examples of such questions are: “Are the symptoms worse at a particular time of day or night?” “Is your sore throat more right side or left side, or same?” “Are you thirsty or not thirsty?” “Is the rash relieved by warmth or cold?” Specific detailed questions that are relevant to the patient’s ailment provide me important insight into what remedy is best to help the body to heal itself!
Homeopathy treats the person individually, and considers that the many symptoms and signs are an expression of an underlying imbalance that needs to be addressed so the body can heal itself and cause the symptoms to disappear. This is why it is important to take very detailed case history, listen carefully, and to not rush your visit.
I hope this helps you to see value and great care in our homeopathy consultation costs. Initial consultation cost is $120, and follow-up is $68. I do have facility for acute consultations, for injury or sudden onset symptoms; for example, sprains and strains or sudden cold onset; these are up to 30 minutes and cost is $40. Payment can be cash, cheque, PayPal (5% surcharge) and direct transfer on day of appointment.
