Homeopathy is not exclusive and can be used along with conventional and complementary medical treatments. Certain conventional medicines such as those for anti-hyper-tensive, cardiac or diabetic disorders, schizophrenia, epilepsy, anxiety, depression or life-saving situations need to be continued even with Homeopathic medicines. Others, such as antibiotics should not be discontinued before completing the course and resorting to homeopathy medicine. This is another reason why it is important to consult a homeopathic practitioner about the recommended homeopathic medicine and dosage amount and to continue to consult your licensed physician about your conventional and prescription medicine. The rule of thumb is that you should not reduce nor eliminate your conventional medicine until you consult with your physician, who prescribed the medication, to see if your improved condition allows you to do so.
Conventional medications, which we get over the counter or prescribed by doctors (licensed practitioners), palliate or suppress symptoms (like a fever, ear ache, skin irritation, anxiety, etc), but they often do not remove the root cause of disease. Homeopathic medicines are remedies that are also FDA-regulated and available from homeopathic pharmacies and some nation-wide stores (like Whole Foods). Unlike conventional medicine, homeopathic medicine gets to the root of disease, triggers the body's own healing powers to fight disease and thereby restore our overall physical, mental and emotional health to balance (homeostasis).
Treatment is highly effective against both chronic diseases and acute illnesses for all ages. It is most appropriate for a wide range of chronic diseases under the individualized care by our highly-skilled homeopathic and naturopathic health practitioners. For acute conditions treatment can be swift and healing can be deep. Good candidates for treatment are cases in which conventional medicine has not been effective or no clear diagnosis can be made. As our individualized health treatment relies on understanding the uniqueness of the person and the right remedy to stimulate the body's own healing forces, diagnosis is effectively bypassed and focus is on a thorough evaluation of the person's physical, mental, and emotional symptoms, family history, and personal habits and preferences.

NOTE: Our practitioners are not licensed physicians. They may offer their services in homeopathy and alternative medicine under Sections 2053.5 and 2053.6 of California’s Business and Professions Code (commonly known as the Medicine Practice Act) as they meet certain requirements and restrictions described here.
Our treatment may not be effective in insulin-dependent diabetes, specific chromosomal defects such as sickle-cell disease, or in cases of advanced mechanical obstruction (obstructed coronary arteries, blocked bile ducts, bulging discs pressing on nerves). In our experience, it is marginal in ALS and severe OCD. Also, severe degenerative arthritis and Parkinson’s disease are difficult to cure after about 10 years duration.
We strongly recommend patients with chronic conditions and serious or troubling symptoms, that have not been healing well by conventional medicine or alternative means, to be treated by our highly-qualified and experienced homeopathic practitioners. Many people have sought homeopathy after trying many other options that did not work for them, and realized only later that they should have come to treatment as a first resort. There are significant long-term benefits to your overall health, happiness and healthcare costs to seek Homeosity's treatment program now, sooner than later. Many of our clients are also seeking treatment for early intervention to illnesses as well as for preventive care to maintain high vitality, optimal, holistic health and happiness.
The first intake visit (in person or video call) usually lasts one-and-a-half to two hours. During the visit, the homeopath will review the patient’s medical history and attempt to elicit a full picture of the patient’s symptoms—mental, emotional, and physical. An appropriate homeopathic medicine from 1000s that exist will be chosen to match the patient’s symptom profile. Our holistic health practitioner or homeopath:
Yes, any of the above! We have embraced new technologies like Skype and FaceTime video calls as they are fabulous ways for our holistic health practitioners to interact with our clients. We are finding that talking on a video call online is as good as meeting in person at our homeopaths' clinics.
Here are some of the advantages of using Skype or FaceTime:
Phone consultation is also possible, especially, when the client's health issue is an acute ailment and is not too complicating.
Our highly-experienced and thorough holistic health practitioners have developed very good intuition and the feeling of connectedness with people is very strong, so they can compensate for some of the advantages of an in-person visit.
The action of homeopathic medicine is dependent on various factors like sensitivity of the diseased person, the nature of illness of the person, the pathology of the disease, various other treatment measures taken before resorting to homeopathy, and patient’s vitality. For example, two individuals may be having the same symptoms of a headache; however, depending on their individual pathology and root cause of the illness, the homeopathic remedies used and the amount of time it will take to heal may be vastly different. In consideration of the above factors, when the most appropriate homeopathic medicine is selected and administered, the action may be contextually fast and highly beneficial.
As we are all so very different in our mental and physical makeup it is reasonable to expect that our reaction to an illness will also be different and individual. Illnesses which occurred many years previously, sometimes in childhood or even in our parents, can often lead to areas of weakness in our constitution and our skilled homeopathic health practitioner may spend some time in tracing and removing these defects by the use of the correct homeopathic medicine. In general, a slowly developing or long-standing health problem takes longer to cure than an acute one or one where the individual has been healthy from birth and living a healthy life with high vitality.
When a patient comes to our homeopath with a long history of chronic illness, the original disease picture has been distorted and changed to a large extent. As we strive with homeopathy to heal both the root cause of your illness as well as its symptoms, the treatment can take some time. The time spent is worth it as alternative or conventional medicines may not get to the root cause and effect deep healing.
Homeopathy is in fact fast acting in acute conditions such as fever, diarrhea, vomiting, etc. Homeopathy can give quick effective results within 5 to 10 minutes in severe pains of gallstone, renal and abdominal colic. It can bring down temperatures in just 10 minutes in case of high fevers, viral fever of 1 week can be healed in a day followed by no after effects like tiredness and fatigue, and works effectively in illnesses like malaria and typhoid.
To remove a small plant you need few seconds and to remove a tree you need a day. Similarly say a chronic disease like asthma of 10 years may take 6 to 12 months or a little more time, and that is still fast when we can appreciate that the patient is finally healing after a decade of suffering, that could lead to even more complications in the future if not treated by homeopathy.
Only with a referral from a primary physician or licensed professional (doctor, MD, ND, OD, etc) and with pre-authorization.
Our homeopathic practitioners are not licensed physicians. The state of California, as in many other states, does not offer licenses in homeopathic medicine. As they are not licensed professionals, insurance companies will not cover homeopathic care UNLESS in instances when a medical doctor prescribes the care or refers the patient to a homeopath AND the insurance company agrees to pay for specialty care when prescribed or referred by a medical doctor.
Please take the following steps to verify if your insurance will cover a doctor prescribed or doctor referred homeopathic care:
1) check if an out-of-network visit is supported by your insurance plan,
2) call the insurance company to ask if they will cover the expenses for homeopathic care that is referred by your doctor (licensed professional),
3) if (1) and (2) are confirmed, then ask your doctor to write up a referral (or prescribe for homeopathic care) and have them submit to your insurance company to process pre-authorization with your insurance company.
Once authorized, the insurance company can explain whether they will cover all or portion of the homeopath's fees. Note that insurance companies will not cover the small expenses of homeopathic medicines (or remedies) because they tend to pay for prescription medications only. Homeopathic remedies, which may cost between $5 to $20 without insurance, are over-the-counter products.
It is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall physical, mental and emotional health. It is used to treat chronic illnesses, like anxiety, asthma, arthritis, autism, depression, fibromyalgia, and hypertension, as well as acute conditions, like colds, ear infections, digestive issues, eczema, migraines, recovery from accidents and surgeries, and sore throats. The medicine or remedy is FDA regulated, affordable, extremely safe to use, even with small children and pregnant women. It is made from natural substances, and works to heal the body, getting to the root of disease, rather than simply treating symptoms of illnesses.
There are over 4000 homeopathic remedies of which perhaps a 1000 are most commonly used. They are specially prepared using natural substances from plants, minerals, earth salts, and animal tissue. Examples include Pulsatilla (Windflower), Sepia (ink of the cuttlefish), Calcarea carbonica (calcium carbonate from oyster shells), Sulphur (the element), and Natrum muriaticum (sodium chloride, table salt). The original substance is diluted in liquid repeatedly, and vigorously shaken with each dilution. Unusual as it sounds, these very small amounts of remedies can act very strongly when used properly. Also, because the remedies are highly diluted, they are extremely safe. The clinical experience of homeopathy shows that the micro-dose is effective: it works for pregnant women, babies, infants, comatose people and animals.
We believe that every person is unique, so our healthcare services look at what is unique about the person. Our expert health practitioners search for a remedy, a safe, gentle and natural system of healing, that has the peculiar, rare and characteristic features of that person. There is no one else exactly like you; however, there are many people we have been treated with symptoms that may be similar to yours. Our individualized treatment is tailored to care for your personal healthcare needs.
Your life, just healthier.
