Is Homeopathic Medicine Right For You? The qualities of a good candidate for homeopathic medicine are: - Awareness of symptoms, insight into the fact that they have a health problem, and readiness to accept help - Ability to verbally express and clearly articulate their thoughts, feelings, and physical symptoms - Consistency with following treatment regimens - Commitment to following up every month until symptoms are resolved (usually takes 1/4 of the time that the illness has been present to resolve the illness) Does this sound like you? If so, give us a call at 480.426.8040 or request your free 15-minute consult online! Two Options for Homeopathic Treatment: 1) Work with one of our naturopathic doctors We have 5 naturopathic doctors in our office who offer a combination of homeopathy and other natural treatments (herbal medicine, nutritional coaching, nutritional supplementation, hormone balancing, adrenal testing, acupuncture, etc.), and can also provide conventional medication management if needed. This approach is very comprehensive, and is explained below in more detail. 2) Work with our certified homeopath Mamta Bhargava is a counselor in our office who is also a certified homeopath. Mamta provides a combination of homeopathic medicine and counseling (DBT, EMDR, and other modalities of treatment). This option would be ideal if you are looking for a lower cost option, or if you are already working with another naturopathic doctor or conventional doctor who is managing your medical protocol sufficiently.
How to Get Started Start with a free 15-minute phone consult - Briefly tell the practitioner about your health concerns and your history - In order to tell whether homeopathic medicine will be likely to help you, the practitioner needs to hear some unique symptoms that you experience when you are at your worst (physical symptoms, things that trigger symptoms, reactions to stressors, etc.) - The practitioner will let you know whether homeopathic treatment seems to be appropriate for your case
Homeopathic Visits with Mamta Bhargava Homeopathic Intake: $275 for a 1.5-2 hour session Homeopathic Follow Ups: $100 for 60 minutes (Insurance does not cover homeopathic intakes)

I am so glad that I finally decided to seek help. I lived for a long time believing that the way I felt was normal. Anger, impatience, irritability, stress. I noticed improvement the first week [after starting treatment] and in the second week I was feeling great. It's been two months now and I feel really good and relaxed. The need to be always on guard, on defense mode, is pretty much gone. I'm more relaxed with more patience." --Sergio, age 33, treated at our office for irritable depression with homeopathy & counseling.
