If this is your first visit with a homeopath, it’s important to understand the difference between homeopathy and veterinary medicine, so you appreciate what you're getting. Otherwise, you’ll be comparing apples with oranges, as the saying goes!
Homeopathic health care is highly likely to prevent the need for recurring health visits, vaccines, expensive blood work and other diagnostic testing. This means that it is an investment.
In general, homeopaths don’t rely on veterinary tests or diagnoses as these can be unreliable (vets know this, but it's all they have). Instead, we rely on the patient's symptoms, be they physical, emotional and/or mental. It takes time to gather all the subtle signs and symptoms.
The consultation fee includes an hours consultation and regular quick check-ins (by email or phone) in between consultations. I'm here to answer any questions about the treatment. The homeopathic remedy prescribed is a fraction of the cost of veterinary prescription medicine. (You can buy these from me or online from a provider of your choice).
Sometimes, a one-time consultation is all you need, especially if the condition is an acute one. This can save you thousands of dollars and prevent future health issues.
Consultation fee is Aus$160. Check out how much that is in your currency.
However, for the serious, chronic and auto-immune conditions several consultations are more common in order to achieve complete healing. These are spaced out, normally from every 2 - 8 weeks depending on the severity of the problem.
The idea behind good homeopathic treatment is to heal the TENDENCY to become ill. This means, that in the early months, you are probably going to need a lot of support. Once this tendency has been healed, there is likely to be little or no need for ongoing help. Perhaps the odd consultation may be needed for an emergency or a rare acute condition.
It's important to appreciate that if your horse has had a lifetime of unhealthy choices, unravelling poor health is not going to happen in the twinkling of an eye. Several consultations over time will be needed.
Horses respond very well to homeopathic treatment. They are very willing patients, with obvious enthusiasm for the right remedy.
Since we need to work together closely for a few months with any chronic condition, it’s important that we have a good working relationship. So it’s preferable for you to book a complimentary chat before committing to a consultation or a series of consultations.
This is a no pressure, exploratory chat to get a feel for each other.
