  • 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.

“I always wondered why I had to suffer in order to be cured, or hurt my patients”

Ki-Hun L., Toronto, ON

I was born, raised and trained in a society that operates under the notion of “No Pain, No Gain.”

All the training I had as a healthcare practitioner and all the treatments I received up until 2014 were based on “No Pain, No Gain.” 

I treated my patients with heavy pressure and sought and received treatments that used either bone cracking, deep pressure or the horrible smell and taste of herbs, painful cupping with bloodletting, skin burning moxa for my chronic pain and I always wondered why I had to suffer in order to be cured, or hurt my patients, before I met my classical osteopathy teacher in 2014.

He barely used any pressure with combination of very slow-paced maneuvers. I was in awe after the treatment. My body felt aligned and deeply relaxed. I was confused about this new experience and was excited to learn more about it at the same time.

I Immediately signed up for the course and stopped doing what I used to do soon after I attended a few modules because I’d finally found something that I wanted to dedicate life to learning and practicing. I started practicing and studying only the classical osteopathy approach since then. I know I still have a long way to go with this but I am starting to feel a bit more comfortable using its philosophy, principles and maneuvers and, at the same time, I have been feeling its limitations when I treat a variety of conditions and I know there are things to improved.

Ever since the lockdown in 2020, I have been contemplating what could be improved in order to serve my patients better, and other ways to support my patients when I can’t see them in person. I made a list of things to be improved on several different occasions and the one at the top of the list every time was improving my skills and deepening my diagnosis knowledge.

I have searched different types of modalities and equipment using different types of diagnostic methods since last summer and one day, in December, I was taking oscillococcinum for the minor chill I felt and it brought up some memories of the conversation with my friend, a naturopath, about homeopathy, cures like only using minute dosages. Soon after, I found out that the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine is located just down the street from where I live, which led to an interview video of Dr. Kellerstein and the book “Organon the Medical Art”(which I am still reading). I instantly knew that homeopathy is what I want to study, much like how I felt when I found classical osteopathy.

I would love and can’t wait to learn the philosophy, principles and how to avoid painful and debilitating treatments, as well as the use of minute doses of simple medicines to retune life force.
