  • Even thoough the homework seems the equivalent of writing a term paper each week,  I'm still enjoying the program immensely.  I'm very impressed at how well it's planned out, adding (what seems like, ha ha) a "simple step"  gradually,  covering particular remedies which turns out to be a properly timed review,...

Choosing A Balanced Approach

R. Kaur, Toronto My journey towards becoming a homeopath… I am a 29 year old female, born and raised in Scarborough and Whitby respectively. I grew up in a Punjabi Sikh family and hold the values of the Sikh faith near and dear to my heart, as the guiding principles for how I live my life. Values of:  loving all, living an honest lifestyle, sharing your earnings with others, and remembering the divine creator who is both within and without. So here is how my story goes… I currently work in an office, in the Communications Department, located in uptown Toronto. I’ve been working here for almost 6 years. It is a really good ‘9 to 5’ type of job, with good work life balance, benefits, great hours and pay etc. However I’ve always referred to it as ‘the golden handcuffs’ as it keeps me stuck in a way at a job that I’m really not passionate about. My interest lies more in spirituality, helping others, eating healthy, and connecting with the divine through singing hymns in congregational settings. I’ve been toying with the idea of quitting my job and moving to Vancouver/Victoria. I like the idea of being closer to nature, the ocean and mountains. There’s a large yoga community out there, and I was thinking I could join a studio and teach yoga and meditation. For whatever reason, this plan has never really felt 100% right and so I continue working my 9 to 5 job, whilst dreaming of a more accurate career path that aligns with my mind and soul! How I reached my decision to become a homeopath? Honestly, it just feels absolutely right. Six years ago I was confronted with a health challenge, but I have largely been symptom-free for the past six years. Just recently, I started having numbness in my fingers which prompted me to see a neurologist once again. He suggested I take an allopathic medicine (for a mere $26,000 per year!) and I chose not to, given the side effects of these drugs and the lack of long-term research done on the side effects. I went for a homeopathic consultation recently for the first time as I felt the desire to do something productive to help with this potential health issue.  At the homeopathic consultation, I was asked quite a few questions of all sorts, in a very holistic manner, concerning my body, habits, desires and my general nature. I was very impressed with the level information intake compared to the Western medical approach of ‘What’s wrong?’ He came to the conclusion that I have a fatty liver and imbalanced thyroid. I was taken aback as I’ve been to 2 neurologists, and several doctors over the years to get opinions, and never once were these two factors even mentioned. Overall I really like the premise of homeopathy as a balanced approach that works WITH the body rather than against the body to help the body heal itself. All of the questions posed before proposing a match is what REALLY intrigues me as everyone’s body is different. I feel truly blessed to have come across this medicinal practice and healing path and I truly hope to help others in a way that works with the body!
