I have come to the conclusion that allopathy and the pharmaceutical worlds have a very limited place in the balance and overall well-being of the whole individual.

From Feli L., Pharmacist, Fort Myers

Way back in my high school, college prep days, I was fascinated by the human body and was bound and determined to understand every facet of its form and function. To me, what better way to gain this knowledge than to study medicine and apply this knowledge towards helping people?

Pretty altruistic.

The reality of life and college studies hit me as the competitive nature of medical school acceptance and the length of study did not coincide well with my desire to combine career and family in a healthy, balanced manner. I switched to pursuing a career in pharmacy which would offer, to some extent, the same knowledge base as well as a flexible and prosperous career in the medical field.

Four decades later and employment in various pharmaceutical fields (retail, business ownership, consulting, long term, palliative and end of life care), I have come to the conclusion that allopathy and the pharmaceutical worlds have a very limited place in the balance and overall well-being of the whole individual. This experience was further exemplified by personally seeking the help of a chiropractor who utilized an unconventional method of analysis and supplementation helping his patients return to a healthy and more balanced life. His practice furthered my current belief that there were other avenues one can wholly attain health.

It wasn’t until our beloved rescue cat, Duka, who was experiencing severe respiratory issues, that I knew what direction I wanted to follow. Duka’s treatment plan included a rhinoscopy, prolonged steroid treatment (which failed) and proposed chloramphenicol therapy for suspected intestinal tissue thickening. It was especially discouraging when the board certified emergency vet stated “My cat had the same symptoms when I lived up north and when we moved down here (southern Florida), they all cleared up”!. I was determined to find another approach. My search led me to a wonderful homeopathic vet who accepted our case and treated Duka. Over several months and dogged determination with 2 different remedies and supplements, our Duka is breathing normally today and well on the road to recovery. My belief became, if my pet - who cannot verbalize what he is experiencing and feeling - can be successfully treated long distance homeopathically, what equally amazing outcomes could occur with a person who can talk and express their feelings? Decision made!!
