Many people have found homeopathy to be a safe, gentle and helpful treatment for a variety of illnesses. Homeopathy is based on the premise that “like cures like” and therefore the consultation is very specific and focuses on you the individual your thoughts, feelings and sensations for your particular symptoms. At the end of the consultation a remedy may be prepared and administered. A follow up appointment is usually required to monitor the patient. Homeopathy does not require a referral for an appointment.
