Is there a physical exam or blood work?
I am not a medical doctor, so I do not order blood work or perform examinations. I gladly review and consider results of prior laboratory tests and hormone panels, as they can be informative, but I don’t need them to find your homeopathic remedy or Plant Stem Cells.
Can Homeopathy work with my existing health care provider?
Can I continue taking medication and/or nutritional supplements?
Yes, homeopathic remedies work well with conventional medicines. Homeopathy works on a deeper level, addressing your whole system; it does not interfere with medical treatment. During the course of homeopathic care, I may recommend that you have your doctor monitor the medications you are taking as your requirements for long-term drugs may change. Do not discontinue medications without first consulting your doctor.
Supplements complement homeopathic remedies, so you will not need to make any changes. If you are currently working with a practitioner who has prescribed supplements, I will collaborate with him or her. After taking your homeopathic remedy, you may find that you do not need to take as many supplements as your body heals.
Are remedies safe? Do they cause side effects?
Homeopathic remedies have been approved as safe and non-toxic by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and are available over the counter. They fall under the FDA’s quality control body called the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. Since the medicinal substances in homeopathic remedies occur in infinitesimal amounts, they are non-toxic and non-addictive.
Additionally, remedies do not cause side effects. Unlike conventional medications, there are no toxic side effects from homeopathic remedies. However, sometimes old symptoms recur as part of the healing process. Occasionally, symptoms may temporarily worsen before they improve. This is actually a good sign that the remedy is working and releasing old patterns of illness.
Where are the remedies made?
Is Homeopathy the same as herbal medicine?
While about 70% of homeopathic remedies are made from plants, they are not considered herbal medicine. Homeopathic remedies are ultra-diluted micro-doses made from not only plants, but also minerals and animal substances. For example, the remedy Sepia is made from the ink of squid. To be clear, there is no animal testing, and no animals are killed or harmed while making remedies.
Herbal medicine is made from the roots and leaves of botanical substances and are consumed as a tea, tincture, or in a capsule.
Please note: Homeopathic remedies are not vitamins, supplements, essential oils, flower essences, or home remedies like apple cider vinegar.
How is a Homeopath different from a Naturopath (ND)?
While both Homeopaths and Naturopaths look for the root cause of symptoms, they have different approaches to addressing the body in a holistic way.
A Naturopath will suggest botanical medicine, supplements, exercise, dietary changes, and offer lifestyle counseling.
A Homeopath focuses exclusively on finding a natural remedy that flips your innate healing switch, turning on your body’s ability to heal itself and interrupt most cycles of chronic illness. In most instances, only one homeopathic remedy is needed to create this change.

How does a Homeopath choose the remedy?
Note: Classical homeopathy does not use electro-dermal screening (EDS), a technique in which a
person puts her hand on a machine to make a diagnosis or determine a remedy.
