Hello
First of all, what do you mean by " a remedy".
Secondly, what type of arthritis is this?
Osteo, or rheumatoid.....
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Homeopathic remedy
I'm in france. Had tests in french hospital. They say it's not inflametory not sure as I don't speak french
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
Yes I am a classical homeopathy.
We can do a quick first aid suggestion.
However, I am not sure you understand...there is no such thing as a remedy for arthritis.
A remedy to cure it would require hours of interview and analysis, and probably more than one remedy.
You need a homeopath face to fact for this.
So you are interested in some brief first aid, is that correct?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
I thought I was going to be talking to a homeopath
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I was hoping for an online session with a homeopath
Not first aid help
I feel conned
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
I can suggest a remedy, but a curative approach requires an exam.
And 2 to 4 hours of interview and analysis.
If you want a more serious suggestion that is a lot more fee in general.
The average first session fee for a homeopath, say in the US, is 300 to 500 dollars, sometimes more.
So
How do you want to proceed?
I can suggest a remedy, but you will still need a homeopath in person
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I want my money back please
This is not for me
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 1 year ago.
I have nothing to do with the money, that would be customer service.
I am using the site as you are...I don't take the money or contract with you; I only answer questions.
I do have the option of giving you an offer more, for more fee, but that appears to have been disabled. If you can re enable that I could proceed.
Otherwise you would need to contact customer service.
