Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How long do I use the medicine before I expect to see a result?

A: This will vary from person to person, depending on their general level of health and how long the condition and symptoms have been present. Other factors, such as a person’s level of nutrition and stress, also affect a person’s general immunity and vitality.

As a general guideline:

  • Acute illnesses: (sudden onset of symptoms) The patient can expect some changes within two weeks. Take the medicines as recommended (practitioner to advise). Symptoms should begin to ease within 2 days to a week. Weekly to fortnightly consultations are recommended (practitioner to advise).

  • Chronic illnesses: (prolonged symptoms) The patient can expect some changes within a week but should persist for up to six weeks. Take the medicines as recommended. Symptoms should begin to ease within a week to a fortnight. Fortnightly consultations followed by monthly consultations are recommended until symptoms cease (practitioner to advise).

N.B. This is a guideline only.
