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

Thank you for the cream! My eczema is finally going away!

Janet Mou, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I had been binge-eating and starving since I was a teenager, and I'd been put on countless concoctions by regular doctors for my depression, mood swings, and bone problems.

I was always in such physical and psychological pain before Dr. Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique work.

Now I've lost 60 pounds and feel awesome about myself.

Even my bones are stronger, and I don't get any more stomach issues with milk.

Andrea Baxter, Toronto, Ontario

Thank you so much for everything!

All my eye pain and headache is gone. The most I feel is just a little tingling now and then.

Otherwise everything else is going phenomenally well in life! It just couldn’t be any better.

I also got a new job. I sent out my resume, and it was the one type of job I wanted, and it was just a good fit.

I just had a look on job searching and I just let it happen.

I’m so happy right now!

I also got accepted to a new school and I’ve already started reading the textbooks.

I’m surprised how much I’m actually absorbing. I’ve never been good at that but now I’m actually absorbing it.

And I don’t seem to have so much a problem with nuts these days.

Since the last time I've seen you, I didn't notice my stomach at all. 

Even with other people in my life I’m just been letting them know how I feel about things, instead of letting that hold me back.

It’s just phenomenal.

I look forward to my appointments with you every month!

Jenny C., Vancouver, BC

I found that the remedies prescribed by Dr. Somody had a huge impact on previous debilitating female health problems that I had struggled with for years.

I feel that I can live my life the way I want to without having to worry about menstrual pain or bladder issues.

Dr. Somody has a caring and sensitive nature when he deals with his patients.

He makes a patient feel empowered by validating her own insights with regards to health matters.

When Dr. Somody uses emotional healing methods, a patient feels as if a weight has been lifted almost instantly.

I recommend him to my friends and family very often.

J. Sall, Port Coquitlam, BC

The TIAs and stroke had left me weak, debilitated, paralyzed and unable to take care of myself.

I had given up hope when I was referred to Dr. Andy, and honestly didn't believe his weird-looking homeopathic treatment would be of any use at all.

My wife had to convince me to give the homeopathy, neuroemotional technique and Bowen therapy a try.

I didn't notice anything at all at first, but my wife, children, and friends all told me I was speaking, moving and looking better.

I don' t know, maybe the changes happened too slowly to notice.

However, the difference is obvious even to me now.

My face, speech and movements are more symmetrical, and I am more independent and capable than I have been for a long time, even since before the stroke.

Tom E., Vancouver (West End / Downtown), BC

I had this bump on my nose that I got burnt off multiple times with dry ice.

But it kept coming back, and eventually became worse and worse, until it was diagnosed as skin cancer.

Then I saw Andy, and his homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique helped kill the cancer and let my skin heal.

I don't get the bump any more, and you can barely tell that I ever had anything there!

B.K., Surrey (Cloverdale / South Surrey), BC

My 100 year old aunt suffered a bout of shingles after which she had severe neuralgic pain in her left arm and around her torso. The pain was so bad that even her clothing couldn't be tolerated.

Dr. Andy conducted a thorough interview and prescribed a wonderful remedy especially for her.

Within days the pain was forgotten by her body and mind and has never returned. 

Margaret Ball, Vancouver (Kitsilano), BC

The cancer had made me so frustrated and slowed down.

Time was my enemy, and I had to get better.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, biofeedback and neuroemotional treatments helped my mood and bowels almost immediately.

The cancer didn't go away overnight, but began to recede gradually.

Even during this time though I could tell I was getting better.

I had more energy and motivation than I had had in 20 years.

So when the doctors told me the cancer had gone into partial remission, I wasn't surprised.

Colin Wood, Delta (Ladner), BC

I just wanted to send you a big huge thank you!!

That cream is wonderful!

i put it on last night and this morning and my fingers feel great!

I have given my sister some of the cream that you gave me for my nephew and we think that it is helping and in fact their naturopath wants them to use it exclusively!

Julie V., North Vancouver (Delbrook), BC

My son is much better able to open and adapt to the world since your homeopathic remedy.

He is also absorbing his food better, and is gaining weight and even meeting most of his milestones!

John D, Pitt Meadows, BC
