The more medicine I took, the worse I felt, then I came to Homeopathy

From Shawn C., St. Andrews, NB

For me it all started with Vinton McCabe’s book, Homeopathy, Healing and You. I had always been interested in “alternative” medicine, but homeopathy was unfamiliar to me. The first chapter spoke to me on every level. It resonated. Unbeknownst to me, I had always held a homeopathic view of health and dis-ease, I simply didn’t have the word to describe it. I was home.

I had been sick since I was a child. It started with eczema, followed by asthma, headaches, muscle pain, and anxiety, finally culminating in an official “diagnosis” – fibromyalgia. I was given a multitude of medications as I literally chased symptoms around my body. I took steroids, muscle relaxants, puffers, and anti-depressants. Yet the more medicine I took, the worse I felt. The illness went deeper. I was angry, riddled with anxiety, and profoundly unhappy.

I sought answers in every corner. I tried massage therapy, acupuncture, naturopathy, yoga, and everything else I could discover. The results were always the same – temporary relief, at best. In the midst of my suffering, I stumbled across McCabe’s book in a local soap store. As I recall, it was on sale for $7.99. I feel like those $8 literally saved my life.

Shortly thereafter I found a classical homeopath. It was a long drive, and it wouldn’t be covered by my health insurance, but I was convinced that it was the only way for me to get better. My first remedy aroused my anger and literally left me with a red face for months, but I immediately felt better. Soon, I was able to throw out the puffers, and discard the pills and steroids. It was a process, but it transformed my life.

Seeing the positive results, my wife visited the homeopath. She had suffered from a lifetime of debilitating migraines. One dose of another well-selected remedy and 20 years of migraines simply melted away. We both feel so grateful for all that homeopathy has done for us.

I began to study homeopathic medicine with the Devon School of Homeopathy in 2003. I have read The Organon, Kent’s Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy (still my personal favorite), Vithoulkas’ Science of Homeopathy, and I have explored the Materia Medica, always astounded by the human character of the remedies and the remarkable nuance and complexity of the remedy pictures. The words in these books resonate deeply with me. I ultimately put my studies on hold at that time to dedicate myself fully to my career as an educator.

Homeopathy has put me on a transformational path of healing and spiritual self-reflection. It is a calling. I am thrilled at the prospect of beginning my studies.
