Before deciding to work with I: the woman; Marianne Borchgrevink Claussen; it is important for you to carefully read through the description of the process, and decide whether this way of working suits you;
If my approach to health and collaboration does not resonate with you, I am probably not the one you should work with;
If you wholeheartedly agree with me, or wish to understand my approach better, you are welcome to book an appointment: as long as you are prepared to allow at least six months for our collaboration, with the value exchanges this entails;
If you are seeking a quick-fix, and expect that a few sessions with me will be enough, then I am not the one you should work with
Before booking your first appointment
... you read through the terms and preparations described above;
If you are in doubt whether homoeopathy is for you, read through the information provided on this website, and or book a consultation or short chat (45 or 10 min), to discuss your expectations and address questions you may have;
I highly recommend reading through Healing from Within before deciding whether to make use of the homoeopathy services that I offer: so that you know more about what this entails
The confirmation email
After having booked an appointment with me, you receive a confirmation email - and you also receive a reminder via email prior to your consultation;
Cancellation must be done more than 24 hours prior to your appointment: if not, you are still obliged to donate for my time, and or do not receive your donation back if having made one already
Health information and terms
Before booking an appointment I expect you to read through the instructions and terms on this page carefully (see above); and thereby have the information readily available when we first meet/speak
The initial consultation
If you have any questions about what homoeopathy entails, I address these the best I can: depending on your knowledge and experience with homoeopathy;
I want to hear your expectations for our collaboration, and share mine with you;
This initial conversation can also be addressed with a short chat (10 min) before agreeing on a full initial consultation (90 min); focusing on mapping your health condition and history;
When I am confident that we have reach a mutual realistic expectation for the process, I ask about your health issues and other aspects that are useful for me to know about when deciding which homoeopathic remedy to recommend for you;
My recommendation of homoeopathic medicine is communicated to you a day or two after your consultation in most cases; it is up to you to then obtain the remedy, but I provide you with instructions and guidance;
You book a follow-up, for a suitable time in 3-4 weeks; and when the need arises (you have questions/want advice in-between the consultations), you book a short chat;
If you have booked an online consultation via Zoom it is important that you ensure a quiet place where you can be undisturbed for the entire session; it is also crucial that you have a stabile internet connection, and that your camera and microphone work; you receive the link for the online consultation-room in the confirmation e-mail after booking
The homoeopathic medicine
After the initial consultation I spend a lot of time working with the information I have received from you; this may take several working days, before I decide on the remedy I wish to recommend for you (unless we are addressing acute complaints - see section below);
I do not want to rush my choice of remedy to recommend; it is important that the remedy is a best possible match, to be able to cooperate with your body in the best possible way;
When I have decided on a remedy I send you an sms or email with my recommendations, instructions and information about which remedy you can take - and how to take it; you can read more about this here:
If you have any further questions you can book a short chat
When you have obtained the remedy
Follow the instructions I have given you, and note down the date you take the remedy;
Check that your appointment for the follow-up is still suitable; if there is still about 3 weeks to go, that is good;
If the need arises you can book a short chat: via phone, Zoom or in person; this is a 10 min chat; if you wish for lengthier guidance from me, book a follow-up, or cancel the follow-up you have already booked before booking a new one closer in time;
It is important for me to keep in touch with you on a regular basis, and guide you through aspects you struggle with/have questions about after having taken the remedy; this also allows me insight into how the remedy is working with you and your body during the entire process
In the follow-up consultation we go through everything you have experienced after taking the homoeopathic medicine; when we have discussed everything you have noticed I will also make sure that we have addressed all the symptoms and complaints you told me about in the initial consultation;
If there has not been much change, it is not the end of the road: now that I know you better, and you know me and know more about what the process entails, it will be easier for me to ask about aspects that are still unclear; and you may feel more comfortable sharing your experiences with me;
I am not happy until we have chosen a remedy/remedies that resonate well with your symptoms; unfortunately, I rarely hit the mark on my first attempt, but I try my best, and usually we still get hints from the remedies we try first - and these hints are helpful for my further assessments;
Often we need to work with the same remedy over time, and or choose other remedies when the symptoms change and or the body starts expressing symptoms that have previously been suppressed;
It happens that changes have actually taken place, but in such a gradual and vague pace that it is hard to notice before we speak about them; that is one of the reasons why I go through what we discussed previously; I have heard expressed on several occasions that:
"oh, no, I actually have not had that since the last time" or "I had that? No, I cannot even remember ..." or "when you mention it, (this or that) has actually changed somewhat"
The process onwards
Most likely we will need a follow-up with 3-4 weeks' intervals (at least) the first months, with the short consultation in between when the need or wish arises in you;
When we have reached the point that a homoeopathic medicine suits your condition well, we stay in touch through follow-ups: but gradually less frequently, depending on how your condition unfolds:
In some instances the same remedy will be recommended for you again and again; other times I will conclude that your body is still working on the stimulus from the remedy, and we await repetition of the remedy - as we do not want to interfere with the process that your body (with aid of the remedy) is in the middle of;
The symptom picture may change once a homoeopathic medicine has resonated well with your body: you may then be recommended the next indicated remedy, if the one we have worked with no longer fits or triggers a response; your health issues and or conditions can present themselves as layers, and be peeled away layer by layer with various remedies; or there may be one remedy that works through all the layers, that must therefore be repeated at intervals as long as indicated
Conclusion of our collaboration
As you may have grasped, homoeopathy is no quick-fix: it takes time to support the body through this process of restoring balance, especially after many years/a lifetime of imbalance; but when we hit home with homoeopathic medicines that match the condition, the reward is well worth the investment of patience and value;
When you feel like there is nothing left that homoeopathy can do for you, we can conclude the process; but it is still useful to agree on a follow-up in 3 months time, to ensure that there is no hint of the need for repeating the remedy; it is a lot better to address imbalances before they get a stronger hold!
If everything still seems stabile and no symptoms have started to reemerge, we agree on a follow-up in 6 months time: and if everything is still in top shape we can agree on yearly consultations, to keep in touch - and so that I, and the records I keep, are up do date with the happenings in your life from time to time, and up to date in case new health challenges occur - acute as well as chronic;
If you are not willing to commit to a minimum of 6 months collaboration with me (with acute ailments as the only exception), with consultations on a regular basis, the chances are also slim for us getting anywhere with our collaboration
Regarding acute ailments that you do not experience on a regular basis, and that are not part of an underlying chronic pattern, an acute consultation is the way to go:
If you have not worked with me before, you need to read through the terms and preparations for the initial consultation (see above); to ensure that you provide me with all the information I need when we meet/speak;
If you are not fit to attend in person, or live far away, you can book an online-consultation: we use Zoom, an application where you can register a user free of charge;
During the consultation I ask about your symptoms, and how you experience them; I then recommend a remedy to try first; I might recommend several remedies, in case the first one does not offer any relief, or if the symptoms change;
It is therefor best if you have some of the most indicated homoeopathic remedies for acute conditions in your stock at home: it will make it a lot easier for the both of us;
I follow up on you according to what we agree upon, until we have selected a remedy that helps; from then on you book a consultation/short chat when the need arises
In some cases I offer home visits upon agreement, as long as you live in Brumunddal; your donation must then have an added 19% to the original value exchange
