Help Me!! I Feel Horrible!!


If you are already a client of classical homeopathy, you know that homeopathy can help treat individuals with acute illnesses. The following lists some of the questions you should ask yourself before you call your homeopath with acute symptoms. The more information you can provide your homeopath, the more likely he or she will be able to select a remedy which will help your acute condition. As with any acute condition, you may simply need a low potency dose of your constitutional remedy.  If you have been treated constitutionally, you may find that you get sick less often. And when you do get sick, you will find that you get well faster.  Call 651-748-1556 to schedule a constitutional consult. If your acute condition persists, you should see your physician.
