Each person is unique and so is the way we experience dis-ease. When a person becomes ill, it is the whole that is sick: body, mind, spirit. The body manifests symptoms of illness but it is not the origin of the illness. The origin of illness lies in an imbalance of the vital force, also known as chi, prana, life-force, or mana. The symptoms expressed by the body, mind, and spirit are the manifestation of that imbalance. By matching the symptoms of illness with the appropriate homeopathic remedy, the vital force returns to balance. The symptoms disappear as the person heals themselves. With homeopathy, we do this by looking at all aspects of a person’s life plus their disease symptoms together as one complex unit. With true healing, the root of the problem is dealt with first; then those symptoms are no longer needed by your body and they fade away. In my clinical practice, I have witnessed Homeopathy profoundly change the health of individuals who had lost all hope in regaining a decent quality of life. Homeopathy is a journey, a steady flow of increasing vitality, as we work together to remove the layers of dis-ease.

Homeopathy in a Nutshell

Homeopathic medicine is founded on the principle that the most effective way to achieve lasting health is by stimulating the body’s inherent ability to heal itself.  It is a unique form of natural medicine that is both safe and highly effective for the treatment of acute and chronic disease.

The principles of homeopathy were developed into a system of medicine by the German physician, Samuel Hahnemann, in the late 1700s.  Hahnemann rejected the harsh medical practices of his time and searched for an alternative method that was free from side-effects yet capable of affecting profound cures.  Hahnemann explored the tendency in nature for “like to cure like,” recognizing that if a substance can cause symptoms of disease in a healthy person, then it can cure a sick person suffering from similar symptoms.  An example that helps to illustrate this concept comes directly from Hahnemann’s own experience. He noticed that the natural substance quinine caused him to suffer from symptoms that were characteristic of malaria.  He then went on to prescribe quinine to a patient who had malaria and found that it produced a rapid cure.

Homeopathic medicines or “remedies” are made from minute doses of plant, mineral, or animal substances.  They are prepared by homeopathic pharmacies in accordance with the Canadian FDA-approved guidelines. There are currently over 5,000 different homeopathic remedies.  Effective treatment relies on matching the one appropriate remedy to the individual.  To do this, a homeopath must take an in-depth history and learn the unique ways in which the individual experiences his or her symptoms and then carefully interpret that information to be able to choose the remedy that most closely corresponds to the case.

Homeopathy recognizes that all symptoms that a person experiences are inter-related. Rather than treating each ailment as a separate, distinct entity, the goal is to address the totality of the individual by choosing a homeopathic remedy that will be able to address the root cause of disease.

The frequency that one has to take their homeopathic remedy varies by the individual. Some people may have to take their remedy daily, while others will only need to take a single dose of their remedy with many months in between doses.

The goal of homeopathic treatment is to produce a deep, lasting, and curative effect on the patient.  The healing that unfolds from a properly prescribed remedy is profound.  By stimulating the body’s inherent healing capability, homeopathy has the ability to change people’s tendency for disease and to allow them to return to a place of greater health and resilience.


What Can Homeopathy Treat?

Like Western Medicine or Traditional Chinese Medicine, Homeopathy is one of the big medical systems in the world that can treat almost anything. In countries like Germany or France, where Homeopathy is an integrated part of the medical system, there are many medical doctors who offer Homeopathy as their primary treatment modality. You find homeopaths in all medical specialties, such as gynecology, dermatology, ENT, oncology, and so on. These highly-skilled practitioners have been running medical clinics for decades, successfully using Homeopathy as the foundation of their treatments. In countries such as India, where Homeopathy is mainstream and legally equal to Western medicine, homeopaths even treat diseases like cancer with impressive success.

Working as a homeopath for the past 15 years, I have treated a large number of people with a wide variety of problems. The following list is by far not complete and it is only supposed to give you an idea of situations where Homeopathy is an option worth considering.
