What's it like?
You would see people with health conditions and give them remedies based on the idea of homeopathy.
Homeopathy is a complementary or alternative therapy. It is based on the idea that substances which cause symptoms can, in extremely small amounts, be used to cure or ease them.
You might see people experiencing problems such as headaches, stress, arthritis and eczema.
You’d ask people about their lifestyle and emotional issues as well as their physical symptoms. Your sensitive and non-judgemental approach will help you build trust and rapport with each person you see.
- Discuss their symptoms and their wider life
- Choose an appropriate homeopathic remedy
- Prepare and dispense the remedy
- Treat the person during visits, or explain how they can use homeopathic remedies at home
- Keep detailed notes
- Advise on wider health and lifestyle issues
- Refer people to health practitioners if necessary
You could see people who might be referred by their GP or come to see you on a private basis.
You’d be running your own business, so you’d need to handle tasks like administration, finance, marketing and advertising your practice.
