Concerns about my HomeopathGreetings all,
In the past 3 months I've made 3 visits to my Homeopath. The first was a consultation, in which we went over all the information and my concerns which included hairloss, low energy, yellowing of the eyes, irritated and red eyes, muscle tensions, and insomnia (all chronic conditions).
He then gave me a liquid Silicea remedy which lasted two weeks and was intended to arrest the hair loss. The next time I was to see him was for my constitutional remedy.
When I saw him the second time two weeks after, the condition didn't change and he gave me the first constitutional dose of Medorrhinum. He then gave me 2 small containers of Cell Salts and another 2 liquid remedies. (They weren't labeled and he didn't tell me what they were, so I simply trusted him.) The instructions specified to take 1 dose of 1 liquid remedy in the morning, and a dose of the other liquid remedy at night, with 4 Cell Salt tablets 4 times daily.
Now at this point I was getting concerned due to all the additional remedies, since I was expecting the Classical Homeopathic method would use only the Constitutional remedy.
I felt much better for a few days, but didn't notice anything else after that and my condition got worse.
6 weeks later came our third visit and he didn't want me questioning the remedies I was given, and simply gave me another 2 Cell Salt remedies and 2 other liquid remedies. (Once again, he didn't tell me what they were and threatened to stop treatment completely, claiming that inquiries would antidote the healing).
I also asked if another dose of the Medorrhinum remedy was required, but it wasn't given.
I'm now taking 3 doses of the liquid remedy and alternating between the two every other day, in addition to 5 Cell Salt tablets 3 times daily. (Right after the liquid remedy doses, as instructed)
I have noticed some improvements in my mental and emotional characteristics and have noticed that I don't crave sugary foods anymore, although I'm starting to question if I should stop seeing this Homeopath because his method seems unbalanced.
I'm to see him again once my remedies are finished, and he claims that I'll only require 2 more visits, from which I then take a break and note what happens thereafter. He says my condition is rooted to low self confidence and anxiety, and assures me that his method will provide a gradual healing action.
I'm now considering whether I should consult another Homeopath and start clean without any mention of the previous experience, or if I should explore/combine Accupressure and get tested for allergies.
If you can offer any advice, please let me know,
Thank you very much for your time!

The classical approach, as you seem to be aware, is only ONE remedy at a time, and we will not even prescribe tissue salts at the same time, as these are pbviously Homoeopathic remedies too.
The fact that your Homoeopath will not even disclose what is in the two liquid remedies you are taking would make me very suspicious of his knowledge, as if he has nothing to hide, there is obviously no reason not to tell you. I would also be a little concerned regarding his assertion that questioning him will 'antidote the remedy', as I have never heard anything so ridiculous. If a remedy is the similium, it will act regardless of any opposition put up by the person who has ingested it, and again his attitude would make me deeply concerned as to his proffessionalism.
My advice would be to seek treatment elsewhere, as not only is your Homoeopath's attitude cause for concern, the treatment he is providing may only be acting in a palliative or supressive manner long term.
I hope this helps.
