What brings someone to homeopathy? Who comes to see a homeopath?
In my practice, I see more women than men. And usually if I am seeing a family, I see the children and not the mother.
Someone comes to homeopathy after they have tried other healing therapies, western medicine and alternative medicines included. The person is not feeling better, even though he or she may be taking medication which alleviates the symptoms for a period of time, and then they need to take another dose of the medication. The person still experiences flare ups and episodes of their health condition.
I think mothers who have become uncomfortable with how western medicine treats their children start looking into homeopathy. It is usually a process for the mother. They may not be comfortable with using medication for ADD/ADHD type of symptoms, and actually may be experiencing pressure for their children to go on medication from outside sources. They want to get off the merry go round of antibiotic use for ear infections or cortisone creams for eczema, since they are not seeing that their child is doing any better. There may be other reasons that have brought a mother to homeopathy.
Why not then come first to homeopathy? Perhaps, it is because people really don’t know what homeopathy is, and what it offers in terms of healing. That is part of why I started this blog: to educate, to provide information, to answer questions, and to promote homeopathy.
To ask you, who are reading this blog, what would bring you to the point of seeking out homeopathy as a form of your health care?
