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

My MS had gotten almost uncontrollable before I saw Andy. I was losing control of my body - my muscles, balance, and even my bladder.

And when my body wasn't failing me, I was in excruciating pain from the muscle spasms.

Dr. Somody's homeopathic remedy and biofeedback have helped me regain a huge amount of control over my body.

And the Bowen Technique that he uses helped my muscle spasticity and paralysis.

All my symptoms have decreased by more than 80%.

If everything keeps getting better at this rate, I'll be totally cured in a few weeks!

Gail, Chilliwack, BC

Back & sleep both are very good now - I don't feel pain or tight muscles any more! Mind is less anxious and worried too, and eyes don't blink without control as before.

Christine R., North Vancouver (Pemberton Heights), B.C.

Penetrative sex had always been painful and almost impossible for me, and I had started to think I just wasn't meant to have a pleasurable sex life! The homeopathic remedy and naturopathic recommendations have allowed me to enjoy sex with my current partner for the first time ever, and we are both very happy!

Stephanie, Richmond, BC

Andy helped me overcome my battles with alcohol addiction, and I don't get anymore liver pain.

The warts on my feet are gone, and I don't get the tonsillitis every winter like I used too either.

K.S., West Vancouver (Dundarave), BC

Andy used homeopathy and bowen technique to treat the itching, burning pimples I used to have around my mouth.

My skin was already feeling better after the treatment, and my face cleared up after a couple of weeks.

I've had the occasional pimple since then, but the homeopathy treatment always seems to make my skin clear up really quickly.

Adam B, Surrey (White Rock / South Surrey), BC

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC

Andy's bowen technique cured the laryngitis and acid reflux I used to get for years.

His neuroemotional work (NET) made my cough and depression almost totally cured too.

Kate R, West Vancouver (Caulfield / Horseshoe Bay), BC

I was suicidally depressed, and had really bad sinus, head and joint pain when I came to see Andy. His homeopathic remedy and naturopathic treatment turned my life around within weeks and - more than 5 years later - I'm doing better than ever!

M.C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), 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

I feel like a new man thanks to the Bowen treatments!

No more pain, weakness, stiffness and restriction in my knee or shoulder.

The ganglion seems to have gotten a fair bit better too - at least it's stopped hurting.

Thanks, Andy.

James L., New Westminster, BC
