“I have never been so amazed and convinced by any other type of medicine in my life, and I have studied many different approaches.”

From Abby S., Columbia, SC.

The journey to finding homeopathy has been a long one for me.  After I got my associate’s degree at a small private college I began studying along the pre-med track at a large state school.  As much as I love science and the study of medicine I became disillusioned with my studies because of the highly competitive nature of the program and the fast paced course of study in my classes.  I decided that pursuing my doctorate in medicine was not the route I wanted to take.  I realized that I wanted to enjoy my studies and eventually have more one on one time with my patients, so I started pursuing my degree in nursing.  Shortly after beginning this track I became pregnant with my oldest son and had to set aside my studies, but through natural labor and delivery, a new door that I did not know previously existed opened, and I entered into my fascination with natural medicine.  Over the following almost 12 years my desire to pursue medicine has not diminished, but with 3 children to raise and bills to pay my study has been mostly for my own family’s health. 

A few years ago I began intensely studying and trying to find solutions to my oldest son’s overwhelming health issues.  He was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called PANDAS and we had the choice to pursue the allopathic route which had no guarantee that he would get any better, or the naturopathic route that seemed to at least help children recover a bit and help them stay steady.  After a lot of research I chose the naturopathic route and started working with an amazing nurse practitioner here locally.  Through her help and guidance we were able to restore a significant amount of my son’s health, but we still remained in a holding pattern with a highly restrictive diet and needing to be cautious to not allow him to be exposed to any kind of sickness.  There was still so much progress I thought could be made.  And so again I began to research to see what other options might be available to help him experience full healing. That was when I came across homeopathy which I had dabbled with off and on with remedies like Arnica for sore muscles, and Spongia Tosta for our boys’ frequent bouts with Croup.  But I had no idea how powerful it was for healing all manner of ills.

I was fascinated with the science, and with the stories I read about the healing people were gaining from homeopathy. So we started working with a naturopath out in California who used the Classical Homeopathic method, and it was amazing.  I fell in love, this was the most scientific form of medicine I had ever seen! I loved everything about it, and it just made so much sense. I began to see for the first time, a progression towards real healing. I started using a remedy app at home and every time our doctor in California would give us a new remedy, I found that I had already picked that one as the one my son needed.  Soon I trusted myself enough to stop working with the doctor out in California and take over my son’s healing journey on my own.  He continued to get better, and better, and then we all started taking remedies for different issues we had been having.  It was amazing, every time there was an issue, we used homeopathy and found so much success.  Now my son is almost completely healed; he is able to do so many things that previously were just not possible, and our diet is no longer restrictive. Our life is almost normal again, thanks to homeopathy.

I have never been so amazed and convinced by any other type of medicine in my life, and I have studied many different approaches.  It provides lasting, deep healing to chronic and acute conditions without working like allopathic or even naturopathic solutions that force things on the body it might not need.  Instead it teaches the body how to heal itself; it works with the body.  And as much as I love the science behind homeopathy, I also really love the personal connection that is created through a practitioner helping a patient.  It is such a beautiful blend of counseling and physical healing. I never noticed before, that different ailments brought different emotions with it, until I found homeopathy.  I believe that homeopathy has so much it can teach us about knowing ourselves more deeply, about paying attention to all aspects of ourselves in sickness and in health.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to study homeopathy and bring physical, mental, and emotional healing to those in my community who can’t find healing any other way.  I believe that the world needs more homeopaths, and that is why I have decided to pursue becoming one.
