|HOMEOPATHY: WHAT WE BRING TO THE TABLE|
Getting good results with homeopathic care depends on a number of different factors. One is how well the homeopath perceives the person that is sitting in front of them. The homeopath strives to be an unprejudiced observer. In it's most basic application this means that they can't assume what the homeopathic remedy will be before the case is taken. Just because the last case of Lyme's disease responded to Apis doesn't mean that the next case will. Every person needs to be received with an open mind. No a priori assumptions allowed.
No judgment, categorization, or generalization is allowed either. Homeopaths hear the deepest parts of people's lives. Personal experiences, beliefs, religious views can all stand in the way of truly understanding the patient. It's a journey into the state of health of another person. You can't bring any of your own baggage. The homeopath must remain ever vigilant to prevent this from occurring.
The patient also brings much to the table for the initial interview. There are at least one, if not several, health problems that they are concerned with. Between the Internet and self help books and shows there are multiple sources of health information. As a result, many express their symptoms initially as a diagnosis instead of just stating their experience.
"I'm stressed out" is a common statement that means very different things to different people. For one it means that they are anxious all the time. For another their stomach is upset. For a third it's a headache. This very common phenomenon is actually a very individualized response to a specific situation. That's what the homeopath needs to hear is what your response is. What actually triggers the specific stress response.
State your experience; don't just rely on the medical diagnosis. Everyone's strep throat, migraine, PMS, etc. are not the same. Some are better with heat, some not. Some are worse at night, others the morning. The more you can tell your story, in your own words, the better your homeopath will understand you.
