How many Homeopathic Tablets? | Homeopathic Health (3 of 7)

Part 3 in a 7-part series on Homeopathy Treatment Guidelines

 

What number of homeopathic pellets, or weight / volume of Homeopathic remedy should I take for each dose?

 
The short answer is that I would consider three or four pellets to constitute a dose.   
 
The complete answer is that - although this seems quite strange the first time you hear it (and I wouldn't blame you for checking with me again in person!) - the number of pellets you take is not nearly as important as the frequency at which you take them. 
 
Think about it this way - the remedy is providing some information to your subconscious systems - your nervous system, immune system, cardiovascular system, subtle energy systems, and so forth - which will allow them to do something that they previously could not do before. 
 
This is like the proverb, "give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime". Once the system is 'taught', it should ideally remember it's 'lesson' forever, meaning that in this scenario, you'd ideally never need another dose to remain indefinitely healthy!
 
Of course, not every patient reaches this state of vibrant, optimal health with a single dose of their remedy - just as we tend to consciously forget things we once learned over time, so does our subconscious sometimes forget things.
 
In this situation, one might want to redose (for more information about the frequency of dosing, please see my answer to question 1 above, or contact me).    
 
However, a great number of my patients ultimately reach a place of vibrant health, where they are empowered and encouraged to maintain their own optimal vitality free of all external aids - which includes me! And, strange as it may seem, it is my goal as a doctor to bring them - and you - there. 
 
Of course, this is a horrendous business strategy - but if I wanted to make money, I would've based my practice on injection therapy, orthomolecular megadosing, or pharmaceuticals - modalities that I am trained in and could use if necessary or desired, but which (in my humble opinion) often provide a bandaid which then falls off over time, requiring the patient to return repeatedly and indefinitely. A great business strategy, indeed, but not one which I'd like to have weighing on my conscience. 
 
However, I also recognize that true individualization of treatment means individualization of treatment type, and am cognizant that there are probably many patients for whom the conventional system is ideal and indeed likely curative, and these patients are in fact likely not good candidates for homeopathy.
 
That said, such patients are unlikely to even be looking at alternative medicine, as they would have reason to do so!
 
Whatever the reason, I have yet to meet a patient in my practice who was unresponsive to either homeopathy or any of the other holistic regulatory treatments that I employ on a regular basis - the Neuroemotional Technique (NET), the Neuromodulatory technique (NMT), and the Bowen Technique.    
 
If you're ever in doubt, please contact me with your specific concerns and situation, and I can give you a much more concise and targeted answer!
 

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

I have seen a huge shift in myself - mentally, physically and emotionally.

It's awesome! 

Things are going really great and most importantly I am connecting on all these different levels. 

Yesterday, I was jumping on my bed with my kids and I wasn't having those crazy heart palpitations, I wasn't even out of breath, I am not cold...I could go on and on...thank you.

Tamar Conner, Kentville, Nova Scotia

For most of my life, I felt as though I couldn't breathe - there was so much mucus and congestion in my lungs and nose.

I was sick a lot too, in my lungs and nose, plus infections in my bladder. 

But I would also get this same congested feeling when I would get panic attacks.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, bowen treatment, and neuroemotional exercises let me get to the source of my sickness and cure it.

Now I only rarely get sick or panicky.

And I always seem to get over it pretty quickly when it does come.

The change in my mood is like night and day too.

Carol K., Burnaby, BC

I passed the stone with much less pain this time thanks to your homeopathic and neuroemotional treatment.

And I haven't had any stones since.

My muscles and sciatic nerve are not so inflammed since your Bowen technique therapy.

W.B., Maple Ridge (Haney), BC

The homeopathic remedy helped make his seizures much gentler and more infrequent.

The muscle tension and weakness have also got quite a bit better with Andy's Bowen therapy treatments.

Jacob, Squamish (Garibaldi Highlands), BC

My jaw and tooth pains used to be constant, but have gone away almost totally since the homeopathy treatment. The migraines were so intense before that they made me miss work; they're 90-95% better now. My blood pressure is normal for the first time in years too.

A.K., West Vancouver, BC

I've always had an addictive personality, which can be great when I put it towards something productive, like work.

Last year, before your homeopathic prescription and the neuro-emotional treatment, I was a full-blown alcoholic, and smoked four packs a day.

I'd lose myself in destructive things like gambling and food.

Now I only drink or smoke socially and irregularly ... once or twice a month maximum.

And I'm in control the whole time.

The doctor tells me my liver is doing much better too.

I'm also not coughing or hacking up stuff like I had.

C.P., Parksville, BC

I started working with Andy to get some help with my son, who has had issues with anger, attention, aggressiveness for some time.

With Andy's help, my son has made a huge turn around in all areas of his life.

Seeing the success my son had, my wife and myself started seeing Andy with great success for the both of us.

Andy is very passionate about what he does, along with his compassion and kindness.

I would recommend Andy to anyone.

Brian Dierolf, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

The deep abscess and pustules don't bother me anymore - thank you!

My eyes and sleep are also better since the homeopathic remedy.

Katherine, Delta (Tsawwassen), BC

I'd had ingrown toenails and fingernails for my whole life, but they were getting worse, and it was getting to be a major problem.

They'd get infected, and I'd need to keep getting antibiotics to clear them up.

It was painful and was kind of disgusting and pissed me off.

Your homeopathic therapy and the bowen releases made my nails seem less fragile and breakable.

Over the next couple of weeks, I noticed that the infections hadn't happened so much and weren't so bad.

I appreciated that I didn't have to stop running or playing tennis.

When you asked me about my jaw after the 2nd or 3rd treatment, I realized that I hadn't been grinding or having any jaw pain for weeks.

D.S., Port Coquitlam, BC

According to my most recent lab tests, my MD said my diabetes is so well controlled it's like I don't even have diabetes anymore! I definitely feel much better, and am able to eat all my favorite foods again without my blood sugar spiking like it did before your naturopathic and homeopathic treatment. Even my daughter is doing much better, gaining weight and hitting her development milestones, since I've finally been able to breastfeed her without pain. Thank you for everything!

V. Chu, Richmond, B.C.
