When To Take Homeopathic Medicine | Homeopathic Health (2 of 7)

Part 2 in a 7-part series on Homeopathic Treatment Guidelines

 

Am I supposed to take the honeopathic remedy when I get my chief complaint? Is it supposed to relieve my chief complaint?

 
Yes to the former, and a qualified yes to the latter. 
 
If your chief complaint has a cyclical, relapsing-remitting pattern - for example, headaches / migraines, menstrual cramps, Meniere's disease / tinnitus, Multiple Sclerosis, herpes, or seizures - take a dose of the homeopathic if and when you have a recurrence of your chief complaint. 
 
Based on your response to that dose, we can evaluate whether you need to take any additional doses.
 
Basically, the only time you'd probably want to take more is if you take some and don't notice any change, positive or negative. 
 
Everyone has different thresholds at which they'll start experiencing a noticeable response from a remedy. I have patients who need three doses over the course of a week before they even begin to feel a shift, while others can experience a powerful effect just from holding the remedy in their hand. 
 
Post 1 of this series involves detailed discussion of the different scenarios under which you might want to redose.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

I can see much better than I have in years thanks to Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment.

Anna, Vancouver (Dunbar-Southlands), BC

Physically, I wasn’t sick in the sense of major disease or sickness. But if I was to keep going the way I was. I would have been for sure soon!

Being troubled with stomach issues for sometime, and having emotion issues I wasn’t even aware of.  

Before I met Dr. Andy Somody, my journey first started at a walk in clinic, where I was put through some blood and stool test after a quick intake. 

My test came back and I was told I have a parasite. I was put on antibiotics and it completely wiped me out. It wasn’t a pleasant experiences at all! 

After all that, I still had painfully stomach issues. I guess it wasn’t the parasite. That upset me a lot to think I poisoned my body for no reason with drugs. I was then told that I had IBS.

After doing some research about IBS I thought it was time to get a second opinion. Why do western doctors just treat the “what” and not want to figure out the “why” so it wont happen again? The reason I went to the walk in clinic in the first place was because my family doctor was a drug pusher who really didn’t listen to me and made me stupid for not wanting to put drugs into my system. 

I chose then to see Dr. Andy Somody.

I called him up made an appointment for the next Saturday. 

I was very pleased that I didn’t need to take anymore time off work and that he was available on Saturday.

My first appointment reassured me that this was the right choice for me.

Andy listened to everything I said.

He asked me question, that I never I been asked before.

He provoked thoughts in me that I never even new existed in me.

My cure was a simple but profound one.

I was stressed out from work and I was going down the wrong path in life. The balance in my life was way off.

I am pleased to say that the pieces of my life are coming together and I’ve never been happier!

(which I never thought could happen, because I thought I was already happy.)

The pieces were always there in front of me - I just didn’t know what to do with them.

I owe Andy for helping me figuring it out, by opening my mind and spirit.

By listening and showing me love and compassion.

Andy has a true calling for naturopathic medicine.

Which has inspired me do what I love.

I am free of all pains and have learnt the ability to listen to my body for what needs it has at the time.

Thank you, Dr. Andy!

Jennie Robinson, Richmond, BC

My only reason for trying Dr. Andy's treatment was to help me quit smoking.

If that had been all that he did, I would have already been satisfied.

Needless to say, I was pretty blown away when the homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional releases not only helped me quit smoking (going on 1 year now) but also made my stools better (less painful, blood and frequent).

The Bowen therapy also seemed to make made me less depressed in winter, and helped straighten the curvature in my spine.

I also get hardly any pain during my flow now, and the flow isn't as crazy heavy as it was.

A.P., Victoria (Saanich), 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

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

Janet Mou, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I feel like my old self again! My energy is better that it's been in years, and I haven't got sick once since I started seeing you.

Charlotte R., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

Hannah is doing REALLY well - straighter then I have seen her in a while - NO spasms - and even her arm is better!!

She has been using ONLY homeopathy and Bowen to battle a crippling disease, Torsion Dystonia.

Her response has been baffling to neurologists and traditional doctors who are amazed and astounded at her ability to walk, run and carry on normally in life.

Andy's assessment and ability to relate to my teenage daughter were wonderful and her reaction to the remedies and treatment has been so positive.

Hannah Schell, Ottawa, Ontario

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

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

I used to have an constantly inflamed sore throat, as well as itchy, irritating skin problems.

These all got better after your homeopathic remedy and Bowen therapy.

It took a little longer for the vitiligo to respond, but it's no more than half as noticeable now than it was before.

Your neuroemotional technique and biofeedback seemed to particularly help it.

C.R., Sunshine Coast (Sechelt / Gibsons), BC
