Think about the things that make you unique.
  • We can only be successful if we understand what sets you apart from other people.


Make a list of your symptoms.
  • For most people, it's hard to remember everything.
  • Making a list forces us to reflect and lets us to work less at remembering.


Pay attention to yourself and your symptoms:

For each of your symptoms, think about:

  • what makes it better?
  • what makes it worse?
  • are there other symptoms that happen at the same time?
  • are there other symptoms that happen before or after?


Pay attention to all your symptoms—physical, emotional, and cognitive (memory, mental processing, etc.).

Some examples:

  • What are your strongest emotional traits?
  • How are you affected by different temperature and weather conditions?

  • How's your memory?


Stick to your treatment plan.
  • Take the remedy prescribed for you as directed.
  • If there's a reason you can't stick to the plan, contact us so we can talk about it and find a plan that will work.


Once you begin taking the remedy, pay attention to any changes that occur.
  • Be prepared to report these changes at your next visit.


Don't start any new treatments without consulting us first.
  • It can affect how you respond to the remedy.
  • It can affect our ability to know what the remedy is doing.
  • This includes other homeopathic remedies, other natural therapies, over the counter medications, and prescription drugs.

If you get sick or injured during your chronic treatment and it is bad enough to need treatment, you should contact us.
  • It could affect your homeopathic treatment.
  • Treating the acute illness or injury homeopathically is often quick, safe, and effective.


Expect results, but be patient.
