Some classical homeopaths are MDs, and some MDs are classical homeopaths. Are you assuming since she's an MD, or do you know for sure?

One lower-cost option if there's a homeopathic school near you is to find out if they have a teaching clinic. Costs are then much lower, as long as you're willing to have the students observe your case.

I'm just assuming she's not a classical homeopath because her primary practice is just conventional pediatrics. She's actually never brought up homeopathy in our visits (we just started seeing her), and I forgot to ask. But we're seeing her in a couple days, so I will definitely see what she says.

Thanks for that idea- I will have to look around for schools in this area. Yeah, the place I called was $600 just for the initial consult, and then $130 for followups. And there's no way in he!! I can afford that.

Holy moly! That IS expensive. Just FYI, here is the name/number of the homeopath that comes highly recommended by DD's ND. She is expensive and not covered but certainly not $600 for the initial. I think it was closer to $300for the initial. She's an ND but I'm pretty sure she practices classical homeopathy. I need to call her again.

Thanks Mary- I will give her a call. Yeah, that's more like the price that I was expecting for a first visit...

I think $500 to $600 sounds crazy for pricing really!!

Avent I think it is so cool your's isn't made yet!! What are you thinking.... an animal, rock ...like from another planet, or from a plant. My homeopath is going to prove buffalo... milk I think to be exact!!

My sons CR right now is Thuja. We all know it's just to get through this first layer. He is showing snake signs in behavior...woke me up by hissing at me the other dday!! But I think he is mimicking his Papa and not really his.

My CR is soo absolutely perfect for me. I love actually feeling like me!!! I'm not too sure I'm so comfortable having to take a second dose 6-7 mo's after the first. But I'm doing great.

I believe your symptoms are not always from this lifetime. So Avent I wonder if you got this feeling from a non-human lifetime?? It's thoughts like these that make me soo glad I do cranial sacral with my CR.

So after taking my CR my whole spiritual side has emerged like never before. Way less stiffeled than ever before. I am even taking classes now to learn how to use my ability. It has made in L O V E:

So far my major healings have been:

Love for every aspect of me.

which has facilitated accepting the fact that I have clairvoyant ability to put it simply (it's more than just that, I have a powerful kundalini running through me and can heal but don't know how yet)
Which has opened doors for me to go to school in a subject I am natrually good at. I'm in kindergarten!!

The understanding that I'm not a weirdo, pyscho, that I don't have depression or anxiety, but that I am a genius!

That Universe University is a real school!!

I am sooooooooooooooo enspired and actually just doing it!! Meaning I don't sit on my bum inspired. I am doing the things I am inspired to do.

I can balance.

And ain't no one gonna break my stride!! Ain't no one gonna hold me down!! (80's anyone? I can't get this song out of my head!!


changingseasons I can't wait to see what you get!!


"The "constitutional" (more accurately called the "chronic") remedy is a goal. It's based on the idea of the "similimum" or the perfect match for the collection of important symptoms (acute or chronic). The similimum is an ideal rarely achieved in practice, but the goal is to come close and in most cases you can come pretty close. But it's a matter of perspective too. Think about the sheer number of plants, animals, and minerals in this world and then compare that to the 5000-6000 remedies in use today. So there's a much larger chance that any given person would most benefit by a remedy that doesn't exist yet. That said,you can get astoundingly close in a lot of cases. Sometimes, though, you can't. It's pretty rare, though."

It blows my mind how many there are. Imagine someone has plutonium! It was hearing about cell phone waves and micro waves that really opened my mind to the vastness!!

Firefaery I'm very interested to hear your thoughts!!

Skimming back down I really can't imagine a deeper healing I may just "vanish"!! Maybe I'm just on healing high!!

Lots of remedies have hissing that aren't snakes...it will be interesting to see how he progresses!

I know one homeopath that charges $1000 for the initial. I think that's insane...but there is quite a range out there. Average seems to be $250-$300 for the initial-there will always be variables. I know some students doing post graduate work that charge half that. Many will work over the phone.

Yeah...once Scholten blew the periodic table wide open it seems that the possibilities for remedies are infinite. Gases, colors, sounds....it's amazing. I've had remedies made before, and I've made some of my own too. Helios will make just about anything. They are going to be working on something for me very soon It's not for me personally...but it will be cool to see how the person responds.

DoulaMary...my dd was very firmly on the autism spectrum. On her bad days there was no language and only animal sounds along with total destruction of everything she came into contact with (toys, clothes, books etc.) She screamed all night (as in for hours at the top of her lungs.) Her remedy literally changed things withing three days. Well, withing a day but there was a period of retracing which wasn't pretty. By day 3 I felt like I had a pretty average girl. Some delays, but sweet, communicative and actually fun to be around.

Now, I really think the reason it worked so fast is that she eats an EXCELLENT diet so her nutritional foundation was great. She's also gluten, casein and soy free. The remedy had less to work against, if you know what I mean. Regardless though, we have had several experiences in this house that are nothing short of miraculous.

DD's classical homeopath charges around $300 for the initial consult, and then follow ups range anywhere from $78 - 130 depending on how long the appt is (she charges by time). Luckily she is an MD (even though she practices homeopathy exclusively) so I am able to submit my claims to my insurance for reimbursement. It's out of network so we have to meet the $300 deductible and then they reimburse me 70%. But a lot of times if the charge is on the higher end the entire amount doesn't qualify so I get less back. And if I have to do a phone consult that is $60, which is not reimbursed.

I used another homeopath one time for myself last year that does consults over the phone. She charges $50 for acute care and I think $350 for constitutional work ($100 for followups).

anyone interested should come to the spirituality forum and revive the homeopathy/flower essence thread as THIS is the kind of discussion I wanted to have going!

I think this is the thread FF means. I am just a lurker for now, but fascinated, just fascinated by this.

Sorry for the OT post but...
Could you give me some links to help for kids on the spectrum? I have a friend whose son was just diagnosed and I'd like to send her some information (assuming she's willing) about dietary changes and such which may help but I have no idea what's actually useful.

Wow. That is amazing. I'm trying not to be too hopeful for such a miracle here, since I've been disappointed by so many practitioners so far on our journey.... but wow.

And thanks everyone for giving me an idea of normal price ranges. Those prices ($200-300) are more what I was expecting.

That's really amazing. I feel lucky because DD is such a happy, lovely, easy and communicative little girl (some words, lots of signs, getures). I have no concerns about her really, other than the food thing. I have really, truly gotten to baseline with her because I now know what her normal nighttime waking is (out of habit and desire to nurse) and when she is reacting to something. It was the removal of corn that finally got us here. I continue to be VERY confused about how she is ONLY affected at night if I eat something bad. It really makes no sense to me. Her disruption comes in the form of tummy/gas pains but I don't know why she doesn't have any pain or gas during the day when there is something bad in her system. I am really hoping we can also afford some visceral manipulation and that the combo of these two modalities will help her somehow.

Do you guys mind checking out this guy and giving me your opinion? He is WAAAAAAAY more affordable (like I could see him for the initial consult PLUS eight more visits for the price of just the initial consult with the other doc), and closer to where I live.

not the one.

Ummm...I'm sexist and don't like men. For one. (This is not totally accurate; but as caregivers, I find women are more collaborative.) But, he does have a nice 'touchy-feely' narrative about being a good listener, empath and intuitive. BUT, he likes to TEACH. That is another sticking point for me, folks who think they KNOW more, iykwim. Also, he doesn't specialize in classical homeopathy that I saw. Too much info about acute care and "science" leaning/justifying homeopathy.

And no testimonials that I could find.

Eyes not piercing enough. He seems "protected", rather than neutral and open. JMNHO


Does that help? :

So the day after I posted about feeling love and happiness after my remedy I have gone into a major feeling of pregnancy.

I have the sleepiness that won't go or away or subside no matter how much rest I get. I am practically puking in my mouth on poopy diapers. And today the biggest waive of nausea on and off all day. I was lying in bed last night and felt the movement inside too. Not like the baby moving but that building feeling as your uterus grows and organs shift. I finally had to take a pregnancy test even though I was sure I was not as my period just ended Thurs.. Negative!! I have even been having pregnancy brain!! I also have been kind of walking around feeling like a weirdo. I guess with all this movement inside me I would feel this way!! But I'm feeling a little self conscience or something. I feel like I'm rubbing people the wrong way. Maybe they are just picking up on the vibe of crazy stuff happening inside me and they don't know how to handle it. Or maybe it's all in my head. Maybe I'm just "revisiting" feeling like the freak or weirdo as it's making it's way out. What do ya'll think?

My son has changed as well. I never thought a 14 mo old could/would behave like this. I thought it was saved up for the "terrible twos" (which I don't really believe in!). He is not really acting out but LOOK OUT if you ask him to stop doing something that could be dangerous or take something from him he shouldn't be playing with!! It is screaming at the top of his lungs. Just screaming and crying. Each fit takes about 10-15 minutes to subside. Total craziness. Once he's over it you would have no idea it ever happened. Maybe this is just "normal" behavior. It is just really out of character for my little guy.

As far as BIG life changes etc.. I am starting my own business! Serene Beings. I am going to sell the goods for artist who don't have a business, selling, marketing sense!! I got my domain name the other night. My focus will be on peace and green art. Things that are for the good of all!!

One thing that I have noticed as a change from the very beginning is my complete faith in the universe. Obviously life is a whole lot easier this way and I was never able to fully grasp it prior to taking my remedy. For example our mini-van died and is not worth fixing. That leaves us with an old pick up truck I'm scared to drive and a vw bus (AIR COOLED NO HEAT!!). Instead of freaking out I knew everything was ok. I started to worry slightly about dh freaking out and then thought no every thing's going to work out. So dh never freaked out and we have a free ford exploder waiting for us in ID!!: yeah universe yeah :

Oh yeah and another small tidbit. I was for the longest time been completely adverse to red wines. I used to only drink red and thought white was too sweet and not much of an experience. Unless it's from a space bag!! So I just wouldn't feel right and would get heart burn and not have a nice experience. I was at a wine tasting yesterday evening at an art show and WOW it was great. Now we were all wondering. Is it their organic grapes? Is it because they don't add sulfites? Is because they are local? Or is it from the remedy???
post #39 of 414
wow, what a nice thread. blessing us all with progress in our healing.

out of curiosity, do you think it is important the connection you have with the homeopath?

I have seen 2 and with one i was given a remedy that she said was my constitutional and it didnt do much, so she increased the potency, still not much and the other doc gave me something and it just made me exhausted not functional (not good for the mom of 2 kids) and then he said take it again so i did and just had horrible headaches (i will maybe get a slightly annoying headache once a year - maybe less often). I just lost faith in them the second one gave us remedies that did nothing several times. the first one helped my dd but would yell at me occationally and try to convince me of stuff like where my kids should sleep and that fructose is a healthy sugar.

I havent been back to see anyone in a while b/c i just dont have the money, but i know homeopathy in amazing, very deep, true healing.

Okay, I made DD's appt with the homeopath for early January. I can't wait.
I have a new question for y'all though....my brother suffers from major depression on/off and even when he is not technically depressed he certainly does not enjoy a very high quality of life - just kind of "fine". As seems to be a frequent occurence, he is incredibly gifted/brilliant and is allowing his life to just kind of pass him by when he wants to be accomplishing so much. He is 24years old. Anyhow, I think it would be so wonderful for him to see a classical homeopath and get a constitutional remedy but I wonder what the research and/or antecdotal reports show about the effectiveness. Is this something that could be potentially life changing in regards to his mental health? He doesn't put much faith in any type of healing measure (allopathic or natural) but he is very willing to try various alternative things. He is currently in a depression and is seeing an excellent counselor, has a special light for light therapy (he is very clear that there is a SAD component to his symptoms and he is considering moving to Austin, TX), is working with a nutritionist and taking CLO and some Barlean's flax oil mix. He is trying to eat better and do a little exercise. But...he needs something else. He has taken anti-depressants in the past and they help him exit the depression but he exits it eventually anyway - the ongoing issue is even when he's not depressed he does not live his best life and really needs/wants to. So...do I send him to the homeopath??
