Dr. B.

of the 5 (or so) questions that I had, I submitted 2. after reading the intro course, most of what I wanted to know was answered (about 1.5 of my submitted questions and 2 or 3 unsubmitted). I took the course in search of medical help for loved ones but was stunned to find myself reading a patient profile for a particular medicine that fit me to a T! maybe 15 or 20% did not fit, but the part that did fit was very precise. recently I quit smoking because I felt something was wrong with my health, and that not smoking would give my body a chance to heal..and that also I could put my mind to the task more effectively. is there any reason why I can’t just take the medicine with the patient description that fits my current state? I enjoyed your reply to anna on self-treatment, but if I know already, why can’t I just get that medicine and try it?

looking forward to hearing from you.


Dear Betsy,

Although it seems to you that the patient profile that you read fits you to the T, I would still refrain from suggesting self-medication without professional guidance. One reason for this is that the profile of many medicines is very close and sometimes even 1 symptom can change the prescription.

There are other issues too like deciding the right potency, repetition etc. So my advice would still be to work with a professional homeopath!

Best wishes,

Dr. B
