Homeopathy Consultation & What to expect?
Your first homeopathic consultation will take 1-2 hours. It will be quite a different experience from any conventional consultation! My job as a homeopath is to listen carefully as you speak about your health problems, and to gain a thorough understanding of your health and the exact symptoms you are experiencing. Following on from that I will have questions for you in order to build up a complete picture taking into account information such as medical and family history including any hereditary or latent diseases, personality traits, stress triggers, energy levels, likes and dislikes, lifestyle factors etc. This paints a portrait, if you like, and the task at hand then becomes finding a homeopathic remedy that reflects that portrait as closely as possible. Because homeopathy looks at the whole symptom picture, people who have the same diagnosed illness e.g. arthritis of knee, are each likely to need different individualised treatment. It is important to note that symptoms you may think of as unusual or unimportant may be of great value to your homeopath. Based on the information you share with me I will prescribe a homeopathic remedy. Remedy will either given to you at the end of consultation or else it will be posted out to you within a week.
Follow-Up Appointment – will be scheduled four week after the initial consultation. It allows the homeopath to assess and evaluate your progress and response to remedy. Depending on this assessment decisions about subsequent prescriptions, potency selections and/ or adjustments, repetitions etc. will be considered.
First consultation – €70

“I visited Margaret a few years ago, as was suffering from migraine headaches for quite some time previously. The headaches were very severe and occurred twice a month and would last 2-3 days. The pain always started in my right eye and radiated to the back of my head accompanied by bouts of vomiting. It was mind blowing as I literally couldn’t think and had to stay in a darkened room. I was prescribed lots of different medications including anti depressants and anti seizure medication (neurontin) but to no avail. After 3 months of taking homeopathic drops daily I felt dramatically improved – headaches were less frequent and intense, felt more like tension headaches. I could function on a daily basis and didn’t have to take time off work. After my 6th month follow up my headaches were completely resolved. I also found that other lesser symptoms( that I didn’t put much emphasis on) were also gone which was an added bonus. I My visit to Margaret was a very positive experience and i can’t thank her enough for her competence and guidance. It has transformed my life as I no longer feel restricted in any way, and don’t need to take any pain killers. It all makes sense to me that how you are feeling and what is happening in your life is also taken into account for treatment.” (M G, Galway)”
“My badly sprained ankle which was very swollen and painful was treated by Margaret very promptly. She asked me a few questions about the pain I was experiencing, and then started me on a homeopathic regime of remedies to be taken every hour over a period of 4-6 hours before bed time. I was then assisted to bed and rested for the night. To my surprise the next morning, I was able to stand and walk and was pain free. My family were astounded when they saw me walking without crutches, they just couldn’t believe my ankle was so good so spoon. It felt to them and me nothing short of a miracle and they are still talking about it”. TJ, Clare
“I came to Margaret on the recommendation of a friend, to seek help for my anxiety and panic attacks which were steadily getting worse and was stopping me from leading a normal life. It all started after a recent bereavement of a close friend. Even travelling to work on a bus was intolerable due to crowds and noise. I was prescribed antidepressants for a short period of time but to no avail. Margaret was very understanding and listened to me in a non- judgmental way. The first remedy she gave me worked as i felt more calm and a lot less worried. Treatment was continued for two months and thereafter i never looked back. I can enjoy life again and have got involved in a lot of healthy outdoor activities. I found the whole homeopathic experience extraordinarily therapeutic and am very grateful to Margaret for her time and expertise. Now i truly believe that homeopathy is indeed a very good alternative to conventional treatments in certain circumstances and have been trying to convince friends to try it.” ( HL, Dublin)
“Margaret has helped me with many problems/ailments including cystitis and back pain and is always very thorough with treatment and follow up. I highly recommend her services.” (AS, Mayo)
“I used to get sudden flare-ups of gout in my big toe mostly at night. The pain was excruciating and totally unbearable. Luckily enough I didn’t have it in any other joint .. that i was very grateful for. I was taking Ibuprofen for pain relief which was very helpful at the time. However since my visit to Margaret (which was an hour long consultation as she goes though a detailed case history) my overall health has improved a lot, and I can say with certainty that after a few months of treatment i was pain free and had no further attacks. It is very reassuring for me to know that my pain can be relieved without any side effects and I am the judge of that! If i have any further health issues going forward I will check out what homeopathy has to offer as I now know more about it and realise it is used extensively in lots of other countries. Thanks again Margaret! “ (MB, Limerick)
“As it wasn’t my first time visiting Margaret for homeopathy treatment, I contacted her over the phone for help as I had a bad bout of food poisoning which I assumed was from eating shell fish. I was very weak and my stomach was “on fire” with profuse diarrhoea and vomiting. As usual Margaret was very helpful and made subtle inquiries about my condition. She allowed my friend to pick up the remedies from her as I unable to travel. She gave clear instructions as to how to take the remedies which made it very easy for me to follow. It definitely helped to speed up recovery as I felt much better within a few hours, and was fully recovered within 12 hours. I don’t know why homeopathy isn’t used to treat outbreaks of vomiting and diarrhoea on a wider scale as it could help with the overcrowding problems in our hospitals. After all I could have ended up in the emergency department!!! ” (DF, Galway)
