What is Constitutional Care?
The goal of homeopathic care is to wake up the natural healing response in the body.
Homeopathy is much different from all other forms of medicine.
It does not try to suppress or palliate symptoms, but works with symptoms to move them in the right direction toward cure.
know the goal
Constitutional Care aims to wake up the vital force so that it will orchestrate all the systems and functions of the physical, emotional, mental, and even spiritual processes with one goal: "to cure".
Homeopathy recognizes that the Vital Force is the energy that is at the back of all healing. However, this vital energy is often not working at its potential because of many reasons. Suppression, genetics (miasms), medicines, diet, activity, grief, trauma, etc. can all be detrimental to the basic function of our constitutions.
This is a process in
awakening the body's knowledge to heal itself.
Many people resort to homeopathy as a last ditch effort. This usually means that there has already been a lot of suppression that has to be addressed. These kinds of cases can take longer to get to the core.
If you have had chronic ailments for long spans of time, please make sure your expectations are reasonable. With the right remedy, you will see changes and improvements quickly, however it does take time to assimilate changes into our lives and to incorporate the lifestyle changes that are often needed along the way.
It's important that the homeopath you are working with is the right fit for you.
You should feel comfortable and safe and can get a good sense of trust when talking to them.
It's also important as the homeoepath, to work with clients that are the right fit for me. So I like to lay out the expectations right off the bat.
Constitutional Care is a commitment. If you really just want to stick your toe in the water, I'm not going to stop you. I'll even hold your hand, but it will do you a world of good to learn a little bit about what homeopathy is before starting. You're about to ask the healing mechanisms in you to wake up and come heal things. That's a journey you want to go on with someone who is committed, right? Me too.
pick your plan
Constitutional care starts with the initial consult.
The initial consult includes:
- the set up of your portal
- one hour consult
- maintenance of your case for three weeks
At this point you can decide if you are going to continue care
a la carte or purchase a membership.
A follow up is half of getting started. Once the first remedy is given, we will get some kind of response. Our first meeting is all about observing your current state of health and the follow up is observing changes to see if you remember your worst complaint.
It is quite easy to forget about old sufferings and find new ones. Over time, these patterns will make themselves more clear and it will make your remedy more apparent.
or a la carte
When I begin working with a person, I'm investing time into the picture of your suffering. I don't take this lightly. The kinds of people I work best with are those that are serious about their commitment and want to take charge of their health.
The style of service I provide is an ongoing, open ended portal that allows for the homeopathic conversation to continue. In order to not charge by the hour, I have created memberships to provide stability to our partnership that can reasonably fit into a family budget.
Membership is the most affordable way to commit to constitutional homeopathic care.

the initial consult
We will start out our call by addressing your reason for wanting help and we will work backwards from there in an intimate homeopathic conversation.
I will ask a lot of questions. There are no wrong answers, but I do ask that you try to really explore these questions and reflect on your experience. There is no requirement to discuss anything that you are uncomfortable with discussing. I don't need to know all the details of your life story, but I do need to see how you experience your suffering, how you react to stress, what your tendencies are, etc.
Many people will report that at the end of the session or the end of that day, they are already feeling some amount of relief. There is something about the homeopathic conversation that allows the suffering to be heard, and the process begins.
We've had our session. Now I do the science and art part.
Some practitioners can prescribe on the spot and do it quickly, I think that's great. I like to let the case stew a little. Ponder it. I like to study our conversation and then use the homeopathic system of rubrics to look at remedies. But then I like to take a day to consider the right fit and then I like to sleep on it.
Sometimes during this time, I may need to ask some follow up questions to help me decide between remedies. If so, you will be contacted through the messenger in the Better App.
Please set your notifications to receive messages.
Your personalized protocol will be delivered via email and will also be available in your Practice Better App.
You will receive the remedy name and potency, along with instructions for how to get the remedy,
and how to prepare and take the remedy.
There you will also find what to do next:
write in your journal
schedule a follow up
The most common question is,
"do I really just take one single dose?"
Yes, you read that correctly. Less is always more in homeopathy, so I will always try to give you the least amount of doses necessary.
What to expect
after your remedy
Your body should speak up.
A remedy that is close, but no cigar, may leave us with no changes. This is the least likely response to happen.
Usually a remedy will provide us with some answers.
We may see symptoms go away, but not improve the overall symptoms.
Sometimes, we'll see an improvement in overall symptoms, but other symptoms that have been suppressed in the past may reappear.
Or we could see the most important symptoms come to the surface and provide a deeper understanding to the nature of your core suffering and lead us to a better remedy match.
It helps to go into this process with curiosity, ready to listen to what your body has to say.
All the next steps
after the follow up
What happens next will always depend on your body's response to remedies. Your body/mind/spirit is our guide through this.
What we want to see is healing from the inside out. We want symptoms to move in the "direction of cure".
We want to see anxiety and depression lessening, and physical symptoms becoming easier to move through.
When the vital force responds, you will be more likely to listen to your inner needs and find it easier to make intentional healthy choices. Your blocks will become apparent and we will look at each one and blast through it.
It is not necessary to analyze your past. We simply need to see how you've experienced life, how you've survived, how you have compensated.
the better system
continuous care portal
Because homeopathy depends on the responses from the body (that has it's own idea of timing), it's often unclear when you should communicate with your homeopath, when you should do a follow up, and what is important information to convey.
So I found an answer to make the homeopathic process much easier. With the better portal, you not only have direct contact with me, but also have your own journal that you can update at any time of day or night.
The benefit of the homeopathy updates journal is that I can have direct access to your updates and can respond with questions and observe the changes in real time, without having to schedule unneeded video follow ups.
In the Better App, you can:
-request follow ups
- order acute care
- message me anytime
- update your journal
- video consults
- access to protocols and remedy information
Direction of cure
there is a way
All of your symptoms are connected.
We don't want to simply see your symptoms disappear, we want to see them move out AND in the right direction.
This is the right direction:
symptoms move from the top of the body downward
symptoms move from the center to the surface
MOST VALUABLE ORGAN TO LEAST
there is a hierarchy to organs
we want the ones that are most vital to have least symptoms
MORE RECENT TO OLDER SYMPTOMS
we want to see symptoms that have been suppressed in the past to reemerge slightly before leaving the body
LEVELS OF SUFFERING
suffering can occur at different levels
The deeper symptoms are suppressed, the deeper they go into the levels of suffering. Physical symptoms are directly attached to disturbances in deeper levels of of the body.
