Classical Homeopathy

I practice classical homeopathy in the tradition of its founder and developer, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. I have studied, practiced, and taught natural health since 1973. I am licensed as a midwife and had a private homebirth practice for many years. I graduated from The Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine in 1995 and currently study with master homeopathic physicians from India. I am the author of The Homeopathic Childbirth Manual.

What Is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a 200 year old system of natural medicine. It acknowledges that the body, mind, and spirit are an integrated whole. Physical symptoms are understood in relation to the individual’s unique way of experiencing the world. Therefore, all symptoms, whether physical, mental, or emotional, are taken into account in order to find the curative medicine. Homeopathy works with the body’s natural ability to heal itself. The properly chosen homeopathic medicine stimulates this ability and strengthens the body’s curative powers. What follows is a high degree of health without having to depend on drugs, special diets, or other treatments. Because of it’s wholistic approach, homeopathic treatment results not only in the alleviation of disease, but also in an overall improved state of health and well-being.

What Are Homeopathic Remedies Made From?

Homeopathic remedies are prepared in a pharmacy from plants, minerals, metals, animal venoms and byproducts. Remedies come in the form of small sugar pellets, lactose tablets, or liquid. Since only tiny amounts are needed to stimulate the body’s natural defense system, they are administered in the smallest possible doses. These remedies are inexpensive, safe to use, and remarkably free from side effects.

What Can Homeopathy Treat?

Homeopathy safely and effectively treats all types of acute and chronic illnesses, whether predominantly physical or mental/emotional —ear infections, anxiety, menstrual disorders,asthma, allergies, migraines, digestive problems, eczema, depression, ADD, ADHD, and much more.
