To avoid impatience. This is especially true for chronic disease. Homeopathy does not have specific medicines to relieve pain, allay anxiety, counteract insomnia, etc. Homeopathic prescriptions are always designed to eradicate illness of the entire organism. The goal is harmonious functioning on all levels of being, not merely momentary relief of specific symptoms. Sometimes this process takes weeks or months and in more severe cases it can take one or two years.
One must not be too impatient. Clients sometimes consult homeopaths with the idea that a miracle is likely to occur, and when progress is slower than they expect, they denounce homeopathy and seek another therapy. The laws of Nature proceed at their own pace and they do not progress any faster under the demands of impatience.
The strength of the immune system/individual is determined to a large extent by hereditary factors. Clients coming from families exhibiting many chronic diseases are likely to require a longer time for healing. In addition, clients with a history of several illnesses, particularly if treated with many allopathic drugs, present more problems for homeopathic treatment. And finally, clients with long histories of poor diet, no exercise, and abuse of alcohol or drugs can expect healing only after extended periods of time.
The responsibility which occasionally can be the most demanding for clients is that of waiting out whatever healing aggravations occur. In the process of eradicating illness, the strengthening of the vital force may result in a temporary increase of symptoms. Usually this lasts from only a few hours to a few days, but in some cases it may take longer. If the client doesn’t understand this possibility, it may at first seem as if the homeopathic medicine is having an adverse effect and there may be a tendency to seek allopathic relief from the exacerbated symptoms. The same confusion may occur if the client expects to never have a relapse, when in fact his or her particular case is expected to require several remedies in order to accomplish full healing. The client must be able to recognize what is happening and trust the judgment of the homeopath. The client must avoid panic and await further developments.
