10 Useful Steps to Help You Find A Good Homeopathic Physician



Searching for a good regular doctor is quite difficult task. Somehow, finding a good homeopathic doctor may be even more challenging. These tips below should help to guide you through the process of finding a great qualified homeopathic doctor to help with your current medical condition.

1) The homeopathic doctor should have you fill out a health survey. This should be about the same as when you go to a MD doctor office.

2) The homeopathic doctor should ideally have a MD degree. The Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) credential is the best. Many people have ND degrees. They specialize in naturopathic medicine but they are not necessarily homeopaths. Many people confuse homeopaths and naturopaths. They are two totally different professions. Check to see if the doctor had come from some of the universities below that specialize in homeopathy.

Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington

Hahnemann Medical Clinic in Albany, California

International Foundation for Homeopathy in Seattle

National College of Natural Health Sciences in Portland, Oregon

Ontario College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto

3) The homeopathic doctor should tell you what medicine you are taking. Some doctors simply give the clients the medicine to heal them without informing the patient what they are taking. Once the doctor leaves, the patient has no way to resume the therapy. This is done to trap the patient into using their services indefinitely.

4) Check to see the doctor has a website. Most reputable doctors would have a website with testimonials and downloaded forms.

5) The intial meeting should last about 1.5 hours to find out a treatment plan. If the initial meeting is too short, you may not be meeting a qualified homeopath to treat your condition. Treatment plans may vary according to the medical condition.

6) The homeopath should also be prescribing constitutional remedies not just homeopathic remedies for your acute or chronic condition. Constitutional remedies are used to help heal your body and mind back to normal regardless of your condition.

7) Homeopathic doctor should not be telling you to stop your current prescription based medication. This can be dangerous for the patient. Only your own MD doctor should tell you not to take prescription medicine.

8) The homeopath should work closely with your current doctor if the case is chronic. Chronic cases require everyone to work together to find a solution. The homeopath should work closely with your doctor so both may come up with a plan to treat you beneficially.

9) Make sure there are no claims or lawsuits impending against the homeopathic doctor.
