Finding a Good Homeopath

It is always good to get an alternative opinion and mode of treatment. Homeopaths and alternative practitioners can help balance your treatment modalities. But it can also be difficult to find the right person for your journey into alternative health.

Many of the best homeopaths, are not necessarily medical doctors, although being a medical doctor does not exclude being a good homeopath. 

Most likely you have been referred by a friend who has had great results. Homeopathy, because of the overwhelming nature of Drug Company sponsored medicine is more  grass roots at the moment. Homeopathy has a wonderful track record of results and safety with over 200 years of results.

So what should you look for in a good homeopath?

Well, first you should ask some questions when you make your appointment. It is even better if the homeopath has a web site that you can look at to see where he has trained. Many homeopaths have trained at colleges and some are self trained with the addition of many courses and studying with teachers. Medical Doctor homeopaths are frequently self trained or have taken additional courses in homeopathy.

In India, and a few other countries training is different. In India, there are over 200,000 homeopaths, most have been trained in special homeopathic medical schools. In the west, this is not the case, as above.

Its important to see that individuals who are practicing are increasing their knowledge base. Both methodologies, and the number of, as well as information on homeopathic remedies is increasing dramatically. The homeopathic profession is currently rapidly evolving and changing for the better.

Some of the new training may include studying with teachers such as Rajan Sankaran, Jan Scholten, Masimo Mangliavori, Louis Klein, Will Taylor, Jeremy Sherr and teachers who are students of these teachers. Ask to see if they have recently been involved in any continuing education.

Make sure the homeopath will accept your Medical Doctor’s advice. It is important to keep your relationship with your medical doctor and to stop medications only with the advice of a medical doctor and monitoring by him/her.

Give homeopathy 2-3 visits and by the 3rd visit you should know if you have a good rapport with the homeopath and if she/he can help you and be a good resource as well as a healing modality for you.

  • Homeopathic treatment works with your body’s own healing powers to bring health and well being.
  • Patients are treated as individuals, not as a collection of disease labels.
  • Homeopathy treats all your symptoms – mental, emotional and physical.
  • Homeopathic remedies are gentle, subtle and powerful.
