Having returned in April from a trip to Taiwan and the Phillipines, I would like to tell you how homeopathy ‘saved the day’ as per usual! Since I never travel anywhere without my kit, I was especially glad to have brought it on this trip. Personally, I used remedies for... Read More
“The post grad course has been a tremendous experience for me which nourished and enriched what I learnt during my homeopathic training. It is a well-structured and thorough program with great lecturers who were delightful. I also must say that keeping in touch with my former classmates and listening to... Read More
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,... Read More
I am taking the opportunity to thank Andrea for thoroughly reviewing with me the best practice for selecting “key symptoms” and how to repertorize them accordingly. Analysis - paralysis can sometimes be a tendency when a student, particularly a student with a very detail-oriented and analytical mind. Also, I very much... Read More
I am quite impressed with the program at CCHM. I was able to catch up easily with the online format and join my class before the end of the first term. Homepathy is exactly what I was looking for to fill the gap in my practice, it will allow me... Read More
Since the first time I took extra credits in homeopathy, I noticed that the learning I had from CCHM was complete. I had the basics, the knowledge, the know how that other homeopaths in my class were struggling with. I am grateful for the thorough homeopathic training I got at... Read More
I am a distance student from Texas. I really enjoyed Lisa’s presentation on “Womens Issues.” She always does a stellar job of presentation of material. I also enjoy her approach on teaching on the tapes within my lessons. She makes it very easy to understand and see the remedies true... Read More
"I am extremely grateful for the experiences I gained in just two years of learning, and also for having a very helpful, bright and kind group of classmates. I couldn’t have done anything without their support and non-judgemental opinions. I appreciated their warm welcomes and cheers every time I entered... Read More
I loved Sunday with Dr Saunders. He has so much insight and his lectures are so interesting. I love how he presents his own case, then talks about physiology, pathology, pharmacology, medical terms, peppered with the materia medica and nutrition, and a bit of posology and philosophy. He is such... Read More
Here is our second installment of a new CCHM blog series called, A Day in the Life of a Homeopath. Today, we are pleased to introduce one of CCHM's graduates from 2006, Soheila Tavallaei. Soheila has answered a few questions from our Registrar, Andrea Gallant Deal, so we can get to know her a little and learn about her passion for homeopathy and her growing homeopathic practice here in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
AGD: how long have you been practicing homeopathy?
ST: I graduated from CCHM in 2006. Since then I've been practicing and enjoying homeopathy.
AGD: Tell us a little about your life before you became a homeopath and what inspired you to study with CCHM?
ST: Before becoming a homeopath I had a BSc in chemistry and BFa in visual arts. I was wandering: doing this and that for a long time, not knowing what my purpose was in life. Then, my cousin got pregnant with her first child while she was in her 3rd year in medical school. A severe anxiety overcame her and she got a massive rash all over her body. She was treated with pharmaceutical medications. Unfortunately, because of taking the medication, her daughter was born with a liver defect and she died after two years. It was so shocking for the whole family. My cousin’s mother couldn't handle the bad news and subsequently died of a brain stroke.
This experience got me thinking that my cousin’s situation had to have another solution. When I came to Canada in 2000, I searched and searched for an answer. Finally, I found homeopathy and CCHM and I enrolled without a second thought.
AGD: What role did CCHM play in supporting your transformation?
ST: The CCHM faculty were very friendly. They gave me assurance and confidence which remains with me to this very day.
AGD: How did you change your life through homeopathy?
ST: I'm so proud of myself because I have been able to bring happiness to so many homes by treating a variety of people, from hyperactive kids to depressed mothers to impotent husbands.
AGD: What do you most love about being a homeopath?
ST: Homeopathy is like an ocean of knowledge: it never ends and it is full of surprises.
