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 been so fortunate to be one of Dr. Somody's patients and have to say that he is one of the most competent people I know.

I had painful stiffness, swelling, and arthritic pain in my hand joints.

And then it changed, and went to my tendons.

I would get throbbing pain in my fingers at night, I couldn't bend my fingers or work properly.

I also would get these little knobs or growths on the joints.

The joints would get really inflammed and red.

Some doctors once told me it was gout or a type of arthritis related to psoriasis.

I also had psoriasis that caused painful cracking and flaking skin on my hands.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and other naturopathic approaches made all these much better.

For instance after the first few days I could already notice the joints were less swollen and painful.

After a couple of months the joints, skin and tendons were at least 50% better.

They just kept getting better over the next few months and other than a rare flare-up I don't have these things any more.

I haven't had to see Dr. Somody or any other doctor again in years and I consider myself cured.

If it wasn't for him I would probably still be suffering from these problems or even unable to work.

My urologist couldn't really figure out what was going on with the swelling, inflammation and pain in my scrotum.

I was told I had epididymitis, varicocele, and hydrocele.

But none of the diagnoses really fit.

Like you said, though, the homeopathic remedy is really like the diagnosis and cure at the same time.

And the bowen therapy decreased the swelling and pain slowly but surely.

My wife and I had resigned ourselves to the fact that we weren't meant to have kids.

So when we got pregnant last month ... we were shocked.

I still can't wrap my mind around how your treatment works ... but I can't deny that its worked for me.

I haven't been thinking about death at all these days. I've been getting more motivated and less depressed, and don't look at everything like it's the end of the world. My family and friends also say that I'm more independent and less clingy / needy.

E.A., Langley (Brookswood / Fernridge), B.C.

Thank goodness for the bowen therapy!

I was worried I'd lose my leg because it was swollen and numb and sometimes painful to the touch.

All that changed after the bowen therapy.

The homeopathic remedy, and maybe the mental-emotional work, seemed to help too.

Actually, they must've helped, since I had a lot of other things get better too.

Like, I was concerned about my weight before, but I've lost 12 pounds in the past 4 months.

Even though that's not that much, I think I must've more muscle mass now, since people often comment on how much different I look.

Jen L., Burnaby (South Burnaby), BC

My blood sugar was crazy - going up and down, and really all over the map.

My eyes and kidneys were really getting destroyed by the diabetes, and I already had had problems with both of them before!

Andy's homeopathy, naturopathic and neuroemotional techniques helped my blood sugar stabilize when nothing else was helping.

I notice the swelling and urination problems are much less now. I even got new glasses because my vision's so much better!

Anna L, Pitt Meadows, 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

I had been living with prostate cancer for months, and the symptoms just got to the point that I had to do something.

The pills that my regular doctor gave me just made me dizzy and tired.

So I went looking for natural alternatives. 

After getting lukewarm results from the acupuncturist and chiropractor, I decided to then see Dr. Somody.

The homeopathic remedy and bowen therapy treatment he gave me made my urination more controlled and regular.

I went from having to get up four times a night to pee to being able to sleep through the night.

My eyes and hearing have also improved, and don't have to live with that annoying chronic cough now either.

R.L., Chilliwack, BC

I had such angry red inflammed acne on my face and neck, it didn't matter how much foundation I put on, it would never look normal.

I also had low blood pressure and blood sugar problems that would make me weak, shaky, and nervous.

I had tried the normal drug route but that just made me feel worse and made my periods even more painful.

Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional therapy made me less anxious, jealous and irritable, almost overnight.

The Bowen technique also seemed to make things flow better, and my periods better.

The acne started to lessen after a couple of days and the flare-ups became less and less until they were not even noticeable.

The healing has been so gradual and complete that before Dr. Andy reminded me I forgot I used to have restless legs, anemia, or vomiting problems.

J.B., Sunshine Coast (Gibsons), BC

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

The trembling and shaking is not noticeable anymore, and the muscle weakness and tension is getting less.
It seems like it's gotten better every time I've seen you, so I have hope for it soon going away absolutely!
My eye sight is also stronger through the treatment, and I am not so forgetful or confused now.

Elle C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC
