What is Constitutional Treatment and How Can It Help Me?

Water Drop on a Leaf A homeopath’s goal is to see the thread that connects our entire person. For example, a homeopath would see a correlation between the Hay fever that a patient experiences every spring, to their asthma they have had since childhood. The “cause” of both of these ailments being the same; a weakened vitality. When one experiences a weakened vitality, over time, a “state of disease” results. A homeopath’s task then, is to find a substance that very effectively raises the body’s own natural immunity. When one’s general constitution is made stronger, ailments that used to be present disappear more permanently; and susceptibility to illness becomes dramatically less.

What to Expect ...

The first visit with a homeopath runs for about 2 - 2 ½ hours in length. During the initial consultation the homeopath’s goal is to attain a picture of how the person functions as a whole. This entails how one functions, at the physical, emotional, and mental level. These things are synchronistic to each other, and when studied together, present the picture of the entire person. The homeopath then compiles all the information gathered from the interview, and study’s all of its components. This may take anywhere from three days to two weeks, depending on the information received. Once a remedy has been found and administered to the patient, the patient is to return in 4-6 weeks time to review the action of the remedy.

How Long Does Treatment Take?

Lengths of treatment are very individual. Acute ailments may be ameliorated in a matter of minutes to hours, however chronic conditions may take up to several months - or even years to truly dissipate. Alternatively, a chronic disease may experience a complete amelioration after just one dose. In some cases, where there are consistent lifestyle stresses (i.e. exposure to cigarettes or abusive relationships) complete recovery may take longer.

In these situations we would examine why the individual is drawn to using tobacco, or why there is a gravitation towards abusive relationships. Similarly, where there has been a lot of suppression from drugs, it may take longer to see positive results. However, with persistent treatment and regular visits to the homeopath, it is possible to see full recovery in these cases. When treating long standing chronic diseases - patience is a must. The main objective is to cure the disease rather then to just suppress the symptoms. Permanent cure cannot happen overnight, and in order to truly address the root disturbance, respect for our bodies capacity to heal itself must be present. Some diseases however where the pathology is so advanced, complete cure cannot be accomplished. In these cases homeopathy acts in a palliative way, providing comfort and increased energy, without the side-effects of drugs.
