Homeopathy is over 200 years old. The founder of homeopathy was Samuel Hahnemann (1755 -1843) whose honorary statue is located in Washington D.C. Homeopathy is used worldwide by tens of millions of people and is the second most popular form of alternative medicine in the world.
Homeopathic medicines are made from single substances in nature, whether they be plant, animal or mineral. These substances are prepared in sequential dilutions and succussions by homeopathic pharmacies to the point where they are merely energetic in nature. Counterintuitively, the more the substances are diluted, the more powerful they are. Each remedy has a remedy picture of mental emotional and physical symptoms. In a homeopathic consultation, Kellie is trying to understand you, as a patient, what you are looking for help with, who you are as a person and what is unique about you in order to match you to a remedy picture. You would be questioned about what you are looking for help with, your life situation, stresses in your life, your personality, disposition, how you like to spend your free time, hobbies, food likes and dislikes, health history, family health history, etc.
When you have your first video consultation with Kellie, plan to be with her for 2.5 hours. She will ask you many questions so that she can find out what is unique about you in order to help her match you to a remedy picture. Follow-ups are 45 minutes to one hour. An average number of visits in a year would be 3-5 in one year.
A helpful remedy is a gentle catalyst to your own immune system to heal itself. There is a healing substance in nature for everyone.
