Now that you have had your consultation, PLEASE FOLLOW THE 4 ACTION STEPS BELOW, and read the other information below the action steps to help you understand the healing process with homeopathy!
Step 1: Ordering Remedies
CLICK HERE for step-by-step ordering instructions for each homeopathic pharmacy. Consider reading step 4 below before finalizing your order, or you can deal with step 4 another day.
Step 2: Follow-up email and first follow-up consultation
About 2-3 weeks after starting the remedies, you should send me an email with your observations. This should include changes on cognitive, emotional/behavioral, and physical levels (for each symptom you report, state whether things improved, stayed the same, or got worse). Also report any new symptoms or return of old symptoms. After receiving this email I will make some adjustments to your protocol. We should have our first follow up consultation about 2 weeks after that (click here to make a follow up appointment).
Step 3: Dosing Remedies
Here is an example protocol and an explanation of what each part means: Ignatia amara 30c, drop dose, every 3 days. Ignatia amara is the remedy name. 30c is the potency of the remedy you should order and take. “Drop dose” is how you will administer/take the remedy (see paragraph below). “Every 3 days” is how often you will take the remedy (every 3 days, for example, would look like this: Monday, then Thursday, then Sunday, and so on…any day of the week is fine to start, I’m just using these as an example).
Dosing instructions: dry, drop and sip dosing. For dry dosing, this means a pellet (or a few pellets if they are on the small side) under the tongue, left to dissolve. For drop dosing this means that you put a couple of pellets in one tablespoon of water and take a few drops from that all at one time (you can set aside the remainder of the tablespoon to be used for future doses, but dump after one week). Sip dosing means putting a couple of pellets into a couple ounces of water and slowly sipping the whole thing over about 2 minutes time. Sip dosing from a diluted cup means that you place a couple of pellets into 8 oz of water, allow to dissolve, then dump the cup down the drain and refill the cup. You do this the number of times that is specified in your protocol (so if you are supposed to take a sip from the 2nd diluted cup you will dump and refill twice, then take a sip). Diluted-cup dosing is confusing for some to understand (ie, “how does it work if we are dumping it down the drain?”). This type of dosing is usually used as an “aggravation zapper” to calm down remedy reactions/aggravations, however is sometimes used as an actual dosing method. See this link for a better understanding of how this works. https://hpathy.com/homeopathy-papers/the-aggravation-zapper/.
To help “schedule” doses throughout the week, use this optional remedy table.
Step 4: Getting Prepared for “Shift of Symptoms” and Acute Illnesses
Please see this list for acute books and kits I recommend taking a look at. It is not uncommon for some people to experience more acute illnesses (colds, flus, minor skin symptoms) as/after their mental and emotional symptoms resolve. This is a sign of a healthy and normally functioning immune system. This “shift” can occur right away or can begin a month or more into a homeopathy protocol. For optimal outcome, it may be helpful to order a homeopathy book and kit for acute illness situations during homeopathic management (this does not include any potential detox reaction from the remedies I have recommended, for that please contact me so I can advise). Please be aware that I participate in an on-call service for urgent issues for which you cannot reach me at night or on the weekends.
Please print and use this optional “Remedy Reaction Tracking Sheet“ to help facilitate our communication. I also recommend reading this blog post and/or watching this Youtube video for helpful “what to expect” information:
In addition, it may be helpful to take a look at this “Emotional Scale” to get an idea of the direction in which emotions should be moving during healing. But in general, there should be movement of symptoms from mental to emotional to physical symptoms. So it would not be uncommon to notice more clarity or engagement (mental improvement), but more crying or anger temporarily (emotional symptom). OR less crying/anger (emotional improvement), but more frequent urination or hives on the skin (physical symptom). Being patient and letting this shift of symptoms play out is the best, but if things get too intense, try the aggravation zapper (see link in previous paragraph).
Other Healing Modalities
In addition to homeopathy, there are many other things that can be done to alleviate the situation and calm down the emotional environment in the home. Please take a look at the attached PDF I created, entitled: 6 Keys to Happy and Healthy Families.
Best Wishes and Happy Healing 🙂
