Homeopathic Physician

Practice medicine using holistic treatments to cure the whole person.

What does a Homeopathic Physician do?

Medicine is an ever-evolving science, and yet much of what Doctors practice today is based on thousands of years of trial and error. Homeopathic Physicians rely on plants and healing techniques that have stood the test of time. Moreover, Homeopathic Physicians aim to cure disease by addressing the core problem, rather than simply treating the symptoms.

Practicing homeopathic medicine means implementing the philosophy that those things making people sick can also make them better. It’s not a new idea, but it does take a deeper level of medical understanding. So, as a Homeopathic Physician, you’re a Doctor who has furthered your studies to specialize in homeopathic techniques.

In this line of work, treating patients requires patience. That’s because you spend more one-on-one time with your patients than other types of Physicians. Your goal is to create a holistic picture of what’s going on inside your patient’s body.

For example, a previously unknown food allergy is causing an allergic skin reaction or breathing condition, such as asthma. While the Medical Doctor would prescribe a medicine to counterbalance the symptoms, you provide plant-, animal-, or mineral-based supplements that help the body eliminate the allergy.

Most of your day is spent listening, truly listening, to your patient. That means you provide an extensive evaluation, ask a number of questions, and make a diagnosis based on the information you gather. Then, you create a treatment plan, provide feedback, follow up, and adjust the plan as needed.
