I Grew Up On Homeopathic Remedies In India

From Harjeet S., Ajax

The science of homeopathy has always fascinated me. I have gotten rid of my major ailments through homeopathic treatment throughout my life.  I have been in constant pursuit to find an institution that could fulfill my desire to become a homeopath. I have been researching for a homeopathic college for the last few years.

I believe Belladonna is the first medicine that I took in my life as far as I remember. I do not remember any other Allopathic medicine from my childhood. It is safe to say that Homeopathy was preferred in our household ahead of any Allopathic treatment. I had a bad cough when I was a teenager that none of the general practitioners could treat. Some said that I had Asthma and others gave their own opinions but no Allopathic Specialist doctor could treat me. I went from one doctor to another for almost a year until my Dad took me to a Homeopath in 1981. He was an old guy in his eighties and I still remember sitting on the carpet along with hundreds of other patients. This doctor had remained a bachelor and had dedicated his life to treating the poor. He did not charge anything from the people who could not afford.

I sat there for almost an hour until he called my name. He asked many questions regarding my lifestyle, habits, appetite and others that were not related to my cough. I was surprised but when you are a child, these things fascinate you. He had a unique way of determining the medicine from his book. He asked me a question and would bring up 20 medicines that matched that symptom. He would then ask another question and reduce his list to 10. He would continue to ask questions one after the other until he was left with 1 medicine that matched the entirety of symptoms. I was very surprised when he said “I have solved it”! It is Lycopodium. It did not mean anything to me but I took the medicine from his assistant and came back home. After a few days, my cough was better and completely gone in a few weeks. This was in India when I was a teenager.

My Dad is a big believer in homeopathy and at 85 years of age, still takes homeopathic medicines for his health issues and is considerably healthy with no major health concerns.

I have seen homeopathic results on my Mom. My mom was hospitalized with double pneumonia and the cough would not go away. She came home after treatment and even after several courses of Antibiotics; the cough did not subside until a Homeopath gave her Bryonia. This did wonders and she was cured in a day.

Another incident when I was in India to meet a Homeopath was in 2007. I had a big bump in my head as I bumped my head against a steel object. The swelling and the pain was unbearable. The pain of two weeks vanished after taking a dose of Arnica.

In 2009, my son was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD) and later with ADHD. I consulted many homeopaths in India, US and Canada and after following Tinus Smits protocol, his ADHD has been completely cured. The treatment for DMD is still continuing.

Since 2010, I developed a keen interest in homeopathy and have been continuously reading the works of the classical homeopaths like Hahnemann, Kent, Boericke, Nash, Clarke, and some new ones like Tinus Smits, Peter Chappell, Harry Van Der Zee, Kate Birch, Isaac Golden, Sankaran, etc. I believe that the next logical step is to get formal education in homeopathy. After doing Internet research and talking to a few homeopaths including Dr. Joseph Kellerstein, I have come to a conclusion that Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine is the best institution to take this education.
