ANSWERS

1. How long will it take before I feel better?

Most people notice their health improving within a few days to weeks after starting their program.

2. What if my symptoms are just from ‘old age’ or stress?

Many people go to their M.D.'s and are told that their condition is due to aging or stress. Just because you get older, doesn’t mean that you need to become unhealthier. And stress will make conditions worse, but your symptoms are a sign that your body is out of balance in some way. You can stabilize and improve your health before it affects your ability to work, your social life, and family life.

3. How will you know what is wrong with me?

Your diagnosis and treatment will be based on the most current alternative medical knowledge backed by scientific data with predictable outcomes.

4. Do I have to continue treatment for a long period of time?

After your examination and the lab testing are complete, you will be given an estimate of the length and extent of the treatment program.

A severe condition or illness may require treatment over a period of months. For acute or less challenging conditions, it may take only 1 or 2  treatments. Since each treatment program is individually assessed, we will discuss the options before you begin treatment.

5. Can natural remedies be harmful?

In general, homeopathics and other natural supplements, when used properly, have no negative side-effects. If you are on medication, homeopathics are the safest form of adjunctive treatment. 

6. What if I am on prescription medication?

If you are currently on medications prescribed by your M.D., please stay on them. Most of our patients are able to eventually reduce or discontinue their dosage of some medications when their body begins to heal (with their M.D.’s approval). You will need to check with your doctor before changing or discontinuing any prescription medication.
