What Happens?A visit to your local homeopath can be similar in many ways to your GP. A full case history will be taken, with laboratory tests requested if needed. The first visit can take more then an hour with extreme focus on questions related to diet, lifestyle, stress and environmental toxin exposure. Your practitioner is looking for a causation to your problem, i.e. never been well since getting flu or depressed since the death of a close relative. Your practitioner will try to discover what happened to get you into the disease condition you are in and what is needed to reverse the problem. We also integrate a functional medicine approach to treatment which can include functional medicine tests done at pathology laboratories. The 25 page health questionnaire that needs to be completed before consultation allows the doctor to get a more complete view of your condition in a shorter time period and allows quicker resolution of your disease condition.
Depending on the severity of your condition or the duration of time suffering with the problem, you may be put on a 3-6 month protocol where you will be closely monitored as we assist to lead your body back to vitality and health.
After the first consultation, the doctor will be able to prescribe the appropriate homeopathic and herbal medication best suited for your condition and will design a healthcare programme to lead you back to health. This may include different therapies including ozone, bio puncture, dietary changes, ozone or flotation therapy to bring you back to health.
Dr de Pontes makes use of the above modalities and uses iris analysis and the Estek scan for monitoring and assisting analysis of your condition.

How Often?Why do I need several consultations when undergoing treatment at Nelspruit Integrative Medical Centre?
The process involves monitoring, treatment and feedback from the patient as the body is put into a house cleaning or homeostasis mode to get back its vitality, energy and health. This may initially feel strange to the patient as they are so used to being in an ‘ill’ frame of mind. When the body starts to heal you may feel discomfort, fatigue, even fear and uncertainty if the treatment or symptoms experienced are unusual. This is why several treatment sessions are needed to work on the body to release these imbalances in the physical/emotional levels. The repeated reassurance and guidance by the doctor, with the supportive back up of the treatment, or medicine protocols works to ensure success.
Putting it all together
Homeopathy is not practiced as a sole modality at our Integrative Medical Centre, but instead we look to integrate several natural supportive therapies that would best suit the patients to ensure that they recover at the fastest rate possible. We integrate disease screening modalities which help determine where the primary cause of the disease is centered and from there, once the causation of the problem is located, we determine the way forward which can include:
- Detoxification stimulation to unburden the organs of elimination via liver and gall parasite cleanses
- Prescription of homeopathic and herbal treatments to aid in detoxification and stimulation of the body organ systems
- Course of colonic irrigations to release waste burden on the body and up-regulate glutathione pathways.
- Cancer support using antioxidant hydrogen therapies.
- Flotation therapy to assist with anxiety, stress, depression and insomnia
- Ozone therapy sessions to speed up metabolism, kill pathogens, eliminate hormone and enzyme imbalances, stimulate energy metabolism.
- Referral to a general practitioner or specialist may also be needed, as well as working in conjunction with the medical fraternity depending on each individual case.
