At The Homeopathy Center of Houston, we keep cost control in mind. We know our clients pay out-of-pocket in most cases.
- Our consultation fees are kept well below the national norm, so that the bulk of your money can go towards the remedies to get you well.
- We send only the remedies each client requires to get the best benefit.
- No additional outside purchases, lab or pharmacy costs.
Homeopathy remains one of the most cost-effective approaches to healthcare, as well as the most non-toxic, side-effect-free approach in the world.
Initial Consultation fees and scheduling
- First consultations for simple, urgent, minor single-complaint illnesses (i.e. colds, earaches, flu, etc.) typically run 15-20 minutes costing $100 plus remedies.
- Intermediate complexity, single, recurrant or chronic complaints (such as ADD/ADHD, recurring localized “infections” such as sinus, digestive, or urinary tract) will require approximately 60 minutes for an initial consultation and cost $280 plus remedies.
- Complex chronic problems and illnesses with multiple complaints or autism require sequential homeopathy. Sequential homeopathy initial consultations are 90 minutes long and cost $375 plus remedies as determined during the consultation.
Included in the consultation fee at no extra charge is the preparation time your homeopath will spend before and after the actual consultation to be sure that we are familiar and prepared to discuss your case in an efficient manner.
Follow-up Consultations for Established Clients
- Our standard follow up consultations are 30 minutes long and cost $140 plus remedies.
- Occasionally, acute/non-chronic care follow-up consultations or interim sequential homeopathy consultions may only require 15 minutes and cost $70, as needed. These are only occasional. We have found that for us to give you our very best, our standard 30 minute follow-up consultation is needed. Communication is key to sequential homeopathy, in particular.
- Additional time will be billed at $60 per 15 minute increment. Chronic problems, vaccine injury and autism related consultations requiring sequential homeopathy are scheduled approximately every 4-5 weeks, typically.
Interim questions and simple clarifications
Many times clients just need a quick answer to a question, or a shift in dosing or have a minor symptom that just needs a few moments of our time. Maybe they just need some reassurance. If they are relatively simple, we will always try first, to handle them with a call to the office, which is at no charge. This is a part of the process and we are always happy to help.
After hours urgent calls
If you have a problem during business hours, please call the office, as that homeopath will be in consultations and the pager will not be available. (Tuesday thru Friday from 9am-4pm Central Time)
However, we know that health problems don’t always respect office hours! For this reason we do have one of our homeopaths on call. Details will be given at your first consult, as this service is for established clients only. There is a charge for an after hours page.
Remedy costs will vary – depending upon severity and type of symptoms. As with any healthcare approach, it is difficult to give more than a general cost range. We have several “home health care with homeopathy” product recommendations, such as one of our 50-remedy home care kits, which are a great investment to cut costs and save time in the case of need for immediate and simple symptom relief. We encourage our clients to purchase one early on. (Your practitioner can give you details and prices) General, non-autism remedies will depend upon the individual symptoms and need. Every person and each case is unique and will have greatly varied requirements, depending on their symptoms. Also, some of our products may last 4-5 weeks, some for 2 or more months. This, too will affect your cost, as well as how closely you adhere to the dosing guidelines.
Autism is one of the most complex problems we typically encounter, and therefore requires many more remedies compared to other illnesses. A very rough estimate of the cost of remedies for vaccine injury, including autism averages between $500 and $750 per month in addition to the consultation fee each month after the first consultation. Your experience may be lower than average one month, and higher the next, due to a variety of factors – severity and complexity of symptoms, dosing differences and compliance, etc., and current needs.
NOTE: Because everyone starts out needing everything, the remedies will necessarily be somewhat higher at the initial consultation. Every consultation is individualized, refill needs will differ each month (some items last 2-4 weeks, some 6 weeks, others 2 months or so), therefore each problem and person’s needs will be different and will vary from month to month. For autism, ASDs and PANDAS, initials should budget for approximately $1000, and $750 for follow-ups, inclusive, but approximate. Due to the wide range of needs and individualized recommendations we can only offer a very rough range. Your actual costs may be higher or lower than these ranges.
As with most healthcare, the costs are difficult to precisely determine until our evaluation is complete. We control costs by providing only what is absolutely necessary to get you well. We will send you only what you need at that time, and will take current items already on hand into account.
HCH goal: True health, affordably and conveniently
Healthcare costs are soaring, but true health is priceless. We understand the necessity of keeping prices affordable. Part of the development of the Houston Homeopathy Method™ includes a constant eye on delivering the greatest value by being certain that every dollar you spend will go directly towards your (or your child’s) direct health improvement. We don’t have a substantial staff devoted to fighting with insurance companies for payment. We won’t send you off with an order for an expensive test or procedure to be billed by an outside party – adding to your healthcare costs. When you pay your invoice, we do our best to conveniently provide everything you (or your child) need to support the healing process until the next consultation, with no hidden costs or running around trying to find items elsewhere.
Our remedies have all been thoroughly researched by our professionals, and are “tried and true” practitioner-quality products from highest quality, FDA registered, regulated and approved and/or higher standard, international Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) approved manufacturers. We want you to have remedies that work. And we have them ready for pickup or delivered to your door, for greatest convenience.
We can help you get and keep your family truly healthy – the best way in the world to avoid rising healthcare costs!
