How To Find A Practitioner

Licensing requirements for homeopaths vary widely from state to state and province to province, and practitioners may or may not be medically trained. A number of different organizations offer certification indicating that the practitioner has reached a certain level of competence (see Useful Addresses, opposite).

Personal recommendation can be an effective way of choosing a homeopathic practitioner. It is often best to seek the advice of relatives, friends, and colleagues who have visited a homeopath. You can also ask your family doctor to refer you to a homeopath. It may help if the homeopath then writes to your family doctor outlining the homeopathic treatment planned, and it is always recommended that you continue under the care of your family doctor.

Homeopaths should freely provide information about their services, training, professional insurance, experience with treating your condition, and expected course of treatment. If you are not at ease with the philosophy and practice of a particular homeopath, you should feel free to find a different practitioner. A good homeopath should aim to establish a rapport based upon trust and empathy.
