Anamnesis proves to be extensive because, in homeopathy, remedies are not prescribed after indication (e.g. for migraine).
The task of the homeopath is to detect and examine all occurring symptoms. She has to explore the ameliorative and deteriorative effects and ask questions about emotional, physical and mental characteristics. Furthermore, she has to elaborate the details of the personal and familial case history.
Seemingly insignificant matters can uncover the whole issue. Thus, they may be the clue to the appropriate remedy for the patient's symptoms.
For me, the individual examination of the patient is a basic principle. Therefore, an anamnesis treatment takes between 1 and 1.5 hours.
