How common is it for the homeopath to not tell the name of the client?

The homeopath I went to said she wouldn't tell me the name because she didn't want me to read bad stuff on the internet.

I actually then emailed the school she said she went to and they wrote back and said the same thing.

What? When did this become practice? I know I've been out of the loop for a while, but how does that fit in with a person being responsible for their health?

Can someone explain how prevalent this practice is and what it's about.

It seems rather chauvinistic.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

you mean "" to pataient "" instead of clients?

actually it depends and change from homeopath to homeopath..what place you live? in near my place many homeopath mentioned remedy name and some are not.

from my experience in abc forum we all say Medcine name but sometimes people take that remedy again and again so many homeopath don't say the name to avoid that.
and many psychological problem pataient do lots of Internet search to know which give more anxiety to them so some don't mention name of remedy

are you practicing homeopathy?

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yes - sometimes I wonder what in the world did I write?! it shows up and I have no idea how that got there. I meant to say 'how common is it for a homeopath to not tell the client the name of the remedy?'

I am not a practicing homeopath. I was introduced to homeopathy back in 1985 and have used the less potent doses for small things - allergies, upset stomach, sprains, etc. I am rather sensitive (but honestly, also suspected sepia would be my constitutional remedy! it seems like there are things I just can't shake.)

I recently hit a rough patch and thought, well, heck, let's just find out the constitutional type and be done with this!

I hadn't encountered anyone who didn't tell the name, so I didn't expect it, but I'd already paid and she seemed nice so I went ahead. (the results weren't good, obviously, as I'm now here asking questions!)

In my mind, it seems like withholding the name is a form of power-over - ie knowledge is power, and by not giving the name, the practitioner withholds the power. And also subtly implies the client's healing process is somehow flawed, like they can't handle finding something out. so there's this one-up-one-down-I-know-better-you're-incapable dynamic. I don't know that that's conducive to healing.

I do realize that when someone spins out of control the practitioner has to bring their A-game, and it's easier not to do that.

I do a few types of 'energy work' - Reiki, Resonance Repatterning, and Psych-K. I also do Ortho-bionomy, Equine Positional Release, and Centered Riding. CR pulls in Alexander, Tai Chi, and Feldenkrais. I see, feel, and hear energy and have worked w/ the chakras and meridians for 20 years or so now.
I tend to use Flower Essences a lot and homeopathics now and again.
I do know what it's like to have a client that tests our mettle.

But like I said, I hit a rough patch personally and figured I'd give the constitutional thing a shot.

It just really surprised me that the person was so adamant about not telling me the remedy.

If nothing else, I think that goes to not taking who I am into account. But I also think it's not honoring of healing in general.

And I also get how you wouldn't want someone to come back in all freaked out about something and we all have our path and all.

In the end, now I know better and can ask the practitioners ahead of time.
