Internet consultations

Here is our step by step process

  1. Book and pay a deposit - First consultation $225 AUD ($65 AUD deposit, $160 AUD balance on the day of appointment)
  2. We will send you an appointment time and instructions to send us the following - 
  • Facial analysis photos
  • Health history proforma
  1. The appointment is conducted using Skype or telephone
  2. This appointment is usually within 6-8 weeks of submitting your booking but may be earlier if you return your proforma and photos quickly
  3. On the day of your first appointment the balance of the first consultation ($160 AUD) will be debited

Your consultation

  1. Your practitioner will have done a full analysis of your facial photos and your health history before you meet.  They will meet with you online and discuss with you further any questions that have not been answered from your health history.  They will ask for a full description of the main symptoms and any stress that preceded them or still continues.  They will discuss issues that may be affecting your energy imbalance (ongoing stress, diet, exercise and lifestyle).  Your practitioner will spend up to an hour with you at this first consultation - on average 45 minutes.
  2. Your practitioner will choose the first remedy that matches your total case.  They will have examined your facial analysis and your symptoms as they are presenting.
  3. You will receive an email detailing which remedy to take and how to take it.  Remedies can be purchased from homeopathic or naturopathic pharmacies in many countries.  Where the remedy cannot be purchased locally it will be sent from Australia**.
  4. A new booking will be made (usually 4-5 weeks after the first consultation) by email.
  5. You confirm this time or request a different time. 
  6. Second and subsequent consultations are made at 4-5 week intervals until health balance commences (many patients experience at least 50% improvement within 4 consultations).  Once the correct remedy is chosen and the patient begins to improve the time between consultations will increase.  Most patients require 4 – 8 consultations and then are given instructions for long term maintenance which usually requires 1 – 4 consultations per year after initial treatment.
  7. Cost of subsequent consultations is $120* AUD per consultation – this amount will be debited the day of your follow up consultation.
  8. At least 48 hours’ notice is required for an online appointment cancellation

**Airmail, parcel post or express post will incur extra charges

Contact between consultations

We are available by email and usually reply to your query within 1 working day.  Advice will be given for acute conditions as well as your chronic condition if required between consultations.  This service is included as part of your ongoing consultation fees where follow ups are booked within practiitoner requested time frames.  Where a patient pushes out their appointment further than 2 weeks beyond the suggested time-frame, a fee may apply to acute support before the next follow up appointment.

Health treatment

Your HFA homeopath will work with you to increase your health through the addition of energy remedies.  Many patients will also want to work with their doctor, physical therapist and/or other alternative practitioners.  We encourage this group approach to make your health the best it can possibly be.  The combined efforts of all (including your own efforts with diet, exercise and lifestyle) will bring you the greatest chance of improved health. Any type of illness can be treated using this approach.  The treatment is non-toxic, effective and does not interfere with or impede any other types of treatment. Both children and adults experience improvements with a wide range of symptoms and illnesses.

Sustainable energy

Energy is the basic engine of all life.  When we understand ourselves as energy beings our lives begin to make sense and we choose treatments and lifestyle changes that allow us to move forward with health and understanding.

Out of balance

We are all aware of the importance of sustainable energy for our planet – but the same processes apply to ourselves.  We are like a mini planet trying to survive within the universe of our community and family.  We need a constant input of energy which can be sustained and used wisely for our own growth and maintenance.  When our energy becomes too low or becomes erratic our homeostatic balance is challenged.  If this imbalance occurs for too long we become tired, emotionally imbalanced, and our physical body begins to suffer.  The worse the imbalance, the sicker we become.   When energy becomes very depleted, there is hardly enough to kick start ourselves again.  It is common at this stage to become depressed or anxious, or to use up even more energy by working harder, because we recognise we are in a dangerous position. 

Do you experience any of the following?

  •  Tired too often or all the time
  •  Poor sleep
  •  Unrefreshed sleep
  •  Fear
  •  Anxiety
  •  Depression
  •  Sadness
  •  Anger
  •  Frustration
  •  Changeable emotions
  •  Poor memory
  •  Unable to concentrate
  •  Physical symptoms in one or more areas of the body
  •  Constant or intermittent pain

If you see yourself in one or more of the above you are to some extent out of balance.  The more symptoms you experience the more out of balance you are. Being out of balance comes from stress, illness itself and the continued depleting effects of illness.

Back into Balance

Once energy balance is restored we begin to experience the following

  •  Renewed energy
  •  Ability to take on tasks with confidence and clarity
  •  Easy sleep
  •  Refreshed on waking
  •  Self confidence
  •  Emotions occurring that are appropriate to events
  •  Appropriate emotions lasting for appropriate periods of time
  •  Calmness returning soon after emotions
  •  Physical symptoms diminishing
  •  Physical symptoms occurring less frequently

When the correct HFA remedy is given the patient will begin to tick the above Back into Balance signs. 

Once we live with sustainable energy and our emotional and physical body is calm and in balance, we can pursue positive activities.  It is common for patients to become more tolerant and have a greater understanding of those around them once they regain their own personal energy balance.
