My Dream Of Bringing Homeopathy To Grenada

Cathy  Ann B., St. George, Grenada.

As a young woman growing up, many things have caught my interest in the health arena, particularly women’s health. I have decided to pursue this dream as a Homeopath because of the natural principles of medicine (‘like cures like’) and most importantly the approach that cultivates the Body, Soul and Spirit. Recognizing that this is a helping profession, it fits perfectly with my personality and who I am as an individual. All my life I have been involved in the helping profession as a Lecturer, Mentor, Counselor, Psychologist/Social Worker and as a Volunteer at the General Hospital among other things. With such combination of interests and experiences it was very important for me to pursue my dreams of getting into the natural medical field.

Having obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, that dream of becoming a medical practitioner never ceased to be the focus of my everyday life. As a result, I started the Pre-medical Sciences at St. George’s University while doing my Bachelor’s degree there but I found that something was still absent; I couldn’t find out what it was. After completing my Bachelor’s degree I decided to give Medicine another round by approaching it from another route - a Master’s Degree in Public Health with a fast track into Medical School. However, there still seemed to be something missing. I’ve always wondered if there was something better out there with little or no side effects in the medical field (not slating Western Medicine) that is actually benefiting the lives of some persons we serve.

A couple years later, having been a strong advocate for natural foods, natural medicine, natural beauty and overall healing, I was caught in a dilemma having suffered from a medical condition that landed me into the General Hospital -where Western Medicine is the only medicine that is being practiced. It dawned on me that I am not quite practicing what I preach or rather preaching what I practice. I had absolutely no choice as there is no one in this country who practices alternative medicine. While there, I monitored the medications administered and ‘treatment plan’ for a problem that no one even knows if that’s the problem. After one week there, I noticed that my health condition worsened with another issue which indicated to me that my immune system was being attacked. To my dismay, I found out that they were treating me with medication that was available in stock for a problem similar to what I ‘seemingly’ had. After much distress, I discharged myself and decided to try an alternative method of care in which I was completely healed.

During my research, I met my love Homeopathy. Though there is no Homeopathic Medicine practiced in Grenada, I am determined to be the first Homeopath to practice in this regard for this Country and other parts of the world.

Growing up in the rural areas in Grenada at the early age of six (6), one of the things that was mostly used to treat persons with various medical conditions was herbs.  I thoroughly enjoyed this method simply because we (as children at the time) were taught by our parents to use this method as it was seen as God’s way and the best way to treat medical issues. This of course was done in a way where there was no medical training in terms of the prescribed dosage etc. Hence my emergent interest for natural medicine and treating the source of the problem based on an individual basis.  

Today, Homeopathy has been the answer to my prayers as I have been searching for the best medical program that speaks to my deep untapped passion. My Spiritual, Psychological, Educational, Nutritional and Pre-medical backgrounds attract a holistic approach to health and healing, in ways that also address preventative medical care, and an approach that is geared specifically for the unique individual.

For many years we have been “fortunate” to have Western Medicine and have been the recipient of medicine that is not the best on the market. Being a volunteer at the Grenada General Hospital over the years, I have observed the method of administering medicine to patients based on a 'symptoms only basis' and after many trials that results in serious side effects, the matter is then carefully looked at.

Given the aforementioned experience and personal encounters, these are some of my main reasons for pursuing studies in this phenomenal program. Moreover particular interest is taken in Homeopathy as it focuses on restoring one’s health, encouraging the body to cure itself and getting to the source of the problem, rather than simply treating the presented symptoms on a superficial level. Homeopathy is indeed the answer to my prayer and long years of searching for my passion in real medicine.
