FAQS about


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?
Homeopathy does not seek to replace your existing health care provider or doctor. In fact, your care is more effective when your Homeopath works with your healthcare provider. By partnering together, both parties can better develop a wellness plan that will deliver optimal results. Women who work with both often experience more energy, stronger immune system functions, and a sense of increased well-being. Homeopathy is often a natural way to decrease reliance on conventional medicine. I always recommend that my clients see their doctor for routine checkups and diagnoses.
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?
Remedies are made in pharmacies that specialize in making homeopathic tablets such as Boiron, Hahnemann Laboratories, and Helios Pharmacy. They are available in pellet or liquid form.
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 is Functional medicine different from Homeopathy?
Functional medicine focuses on identifying the root cause of disease with blood work, hormone panels, and often genetic testing. The doctor suggests supplements, lifestyle and dietary changes, and medications, if needed. They rarely use homeopathic remedies as part of their treatment.
I have food allergies, can I take homeopathic remedies?
If you have food allergies to wheat, soy, eggs, nuts, or shellfish, homeopathic remedies will not affect you since they do not contain these substances. If you are allergic to lactose or sugar, you can order remedies in a solution of water rather than in pellet form.
How does a Homeopath choose the remedy?
A Homeopath will talk to a client for about two hours to understand every aspect of her physical and emotional health. She then analyzes the information using software that cross-references over 4,000 remedies to match her client’s individual symptoms. All aspects of the client’s health are addressed with just one remedy, made from one substance.

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.

How much does homeopathic care cost?
I analyze everyone’s case on an individual basis. Your program will be based on assessment of your health goals and needs.
