Why would I use homeopathy?

Homeopathy treats acute and chronic symptoms safely and effectively. Homeopathic remedies have no side effects. They work with the immune system rather than against it and improve resistance to infection.

Homeopathic treatment shortens the recovery time after illness – often preventing further complications. Furthermore, no homeopathic remedies are tested on animals because they’ve all been tested on healthy people. Homeopaths know their effect on the human body.

Why should I choose Homeopath Soofi?

Soofi Aziz is a qualified homeopath who has years of experience working with children and adults with a range of difficulties from mild to moderate to complex and severe presentations.

Soofi updates himself with the latest homeopathic therapeutic approaches that have the best evidence base for a range of difficulties. Soofi receives regular supervision from experts in the field from the UK, US, Europe and Australia. He also engages in continuing professional development and works with the highest standard of professionalism.

What is the difference between an acute and chronic condition?

An acute condition consists of symptoms that come on quickly. If left untreated, an acute condition can progress to a more serious chronic condition.

A chronic condition is a long-standing problem that develops over an extended period of time.

Can I pay for my consultations with my private health insurance?

From 1 April 2019, you will no longer receive a private health insurance rebate for homeopathy as part of a general treatment policy.

However, your private health insurer may be able to offer you incentives for services that include services provided by a natural therapist. Please contact your private health insurer for further information.

Does online homeopathic treatment work?

There is growing evidence that online treatment works just as effectively as a physical face to face treatment.

Moreover, at Hakim Homeopathy we ensure that you don’t miss out on any of the elements of the real human connection that is necessary for the therapeutic process to yield good outcomes by offering face to face video conferencing in real-time.

What is the difference between a homeopath, a naturopath, a herbalist and an osteopath?

A homeopath, naturopath, herbalist and osteopath receive a minimum of four years of training in their respective field of therapies. A homeopath treats a condition with the same substance that is capable of causing the condition – based upon the principle of similimum or like cures like.

A naturopath treats conditions using a broad range of natural therapies. A herbalist utilises plants as medicines to treat conditions. An osteopath treats conditions arising from disturbances of the musculoskeletal system.

What happens in the initial consultation and why does the duration of consultation varies?

During the initial consultation, you will meet with Homeopath Soofi Aziz and have a detailed session. Soofi will go through all your symptoms by asking detailed questions about your health.

He will differentiate between an acute condition and a chronic condition. Consultation for an acute condition usually lasts about 30 minutes while a consultation for chronic ailments lasts about an hour and a half.

What happens after an initial consultation?

Following an initial consultation, Homeopath Soofi Aziz will develop a homeopathic treatment plan. In acute treatment, a quick-acting homeopathic medicine is chosen to treat your condition and this will usually resolve within a few days.

In chronic treatment a constitutional homeopathic medicine is chosen to cover all aspects of your ailment – both physical and psychological. He will carefully watch your response. If it’s the correct remedy, this constitutional remedy stimulates your body’s defences to begin the healing process. You will begin to feel improvement in your energy, mood and sense of wellbeing.

What happens if I my symptoms worsen after taking a homeopathic medicine?

You should phone Soofi immediately if your symptoms worsen after taking the homeopathic medicine. You may be reacting to the treatment, in which case the symptoms will settle down after a few days.

If the symptoms still persist after a few days, you may be advised to stop taking the homeopathic medicine and your condition will be reassessed.

In the case of a medical emergency, you should call an ambulance immediately.

How do I receive my homeopathic treatment?

Homeopath Soofi Aziz will supply you with homeopathic remedies by post. Generally, it takes about 2-3 days for delivery.

How many appointments will it take to make me feel better?

The progress of your treatment differs greatly depending on the nature of your condition. The acute treatment we offer is short term, so you should be able to notice a change within one or two sessions.

A constitutional homeopathic treatment for chronic conditions is long term and involves monthly sessions over several months – or even years, depending on how long you’ve been suffering from your health problems.

During the first few sessions, Homeopath Soofi should be able to give you some guidance about your ailment progress and the likely duration of the treatment

I'm not sure whether homeopathy is for me, should I book?

Having a free 10-minute phone chat with Homeopath Soofi Aziz will give you a sense as to whether homeopathy is for you. You are not committed to any further sessions after the free phone chat.

Our clients who haven’t tried homeopathy often find that this first experience is helpful in deciding what they need and if homeopathic treatment is the right fit for them.

Is everything I talk about confidential?

Yes, everything you talk about is confidential. The only exceptions to confidentiality are if Homeopath Soofi Aziz thinks that you have been afflicted with a contagious or infectious disease or that you at risk to yourself or others in which case he may contact the relevant medical authority or your next of kin.

This will always be discussed with you first. During your initial consultation, Homeopath Soofi will cover all these agreements with you to ensure you have been given informed consent.

Does my GP have to be informed?

Natural Medicine Care Homeopathy is a private virtual homeopathic clinic, so we will never communicate with anyone about your care unless you give us explicit permission to do so.

The only exception to this is highlighted in the section about confidentiality. For professional and ethical reasons, it is good practice to have details of your GP should we ever need to contact them. If you have any concerns about this issue, please discuss them during your initial session.

We will respect your decision and your confidentiality.

What is your cancellation policy?

Please refer to our pricing page.

Can I contact Homeopath Soofi Aziz out of hours?

Depending on the treatment you are receiving it might be possible to have email or phone messaging contact with Soofi outside your session time. This is something that is discussed and negotiated on an individual basis and may vary from person to person.
