The practice of classical homeopathy involves a detailed case-taking by the homeopath where the patient is examined and listened to while they explain in as much detail as possible their present symptoms, thoughts and feelings and their past history which has led up to the present reason for consulting the homeopath.
In the initial homeopathic case-taking interview, the patient has the opportunity to discuss absolutely all concerns related to his or her health. While listening the homeopath takes special notes of the details of the condition's unique expressions as well as the likes and dislikes, fears and dreams, and the history of his or her illness. The essence of the case then emerges, as a detective story.
After recording the patient's case, the homeopath will analyse the whole picture and by comparing the symptoms to the known remedies in the materia medica seek to find the single remedy which best covers the patient's expressed symptoms mental, emotional and physical. The process of choosing the correct homeopathic remedy (similimum) involves paying very close attention to all symptom's, no matter how insignificant they may seem. The selection of the curative substance is always determined by what is special or individual about the patient.
Homoeopathic remedies and treatments
Each remedy is highly individual and chosen specifically for their condition. The correct remedy promotes genuine healing by stimulating what homeopaths call `the vital force'. This is not the mere suppression of symptom's which is normally found in drugs which can have increasingly severe consequences on overall health but rather the lifting of the whole condition which brought ill health to begin with. This one remedy will be given to the patient in an appropriate potency and frequency of repetition according to the homeopaths assessment of their needs.
