“My goal is to find a place where homeopaths and allopathic doctors can work together for the benefit of everyone.”

From Katrina N., Brooklyn, NY I didn’t choose to go into medicine or science when I was young, but I have always been interested in health. My father is a physician, my grandfather was a beloved family doctor in his community and we often referred to my mother as Dr. Mom because of her intuitive healing knowledge; so, medicine feels a bit like a family business. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized how empowering and advantageous it is to have a solid understanding of health, nutrition and basic medical knowledge; good health, after all, is essential to succeed in anything. That is one of the main reasons why I’m interested in homeopathy; I want to be self-sufficient when it comes to caring for myself and my family and I want to help others achieve a healthy mind and body. Because I’ve had the privilege of having doctors in the family, I’ve always been pretty good at navigating the medical system. If there was a medicine or a test I was wary about, all I needed to do was call my dad. However, this past year I experienced a very frustrating situation that ultimately inspired me to learn more about health and natural medicine. After going to the doctor for occasional pain and discomfort, I was diagnosed - as the doctor was walking out the door - with endometriosis and prescribed antibiotics. I was dumbfounded that a doctor felt comfortable isolating this condition after an exam that lasted less than 15 minutes, without running any tests or asking about my lifestyle and provided absolutely no information about the course of treatment or alternative options. This kind of cavalier approach to disease leaves patients feeling as if they are navigating a health condition on their own without understanding why they feel a certain way. There is a massive gap in the health care industry in the U.S; less than a third of practicing physicians consider themselves primary care doctors, health costs are soaring, corporations are run amok, nutrition and basic health education is nearly non-existent, some of the most common medical conditions are largely preventable and doctors are so overworked that it’s nearly impossible to find individualized care. I want to become a homeopath so I can help bridge this gap and offer those who are not getting the care they need from allopathic medicine a holistic service. I find the human body fascinating and love learning about its intricacies. I respect the body’s ability to heal and think of the human body as one of the most complex and powerful systems on earth. I am drawn to homeopathy because I believe a comprehensive intake is hugely valuable and am interested in approaching care from a collaborative perspective - where patient and practitioner work together. I think health education has the potential to be an effective tool for managing compliance. I don’t think it’s controversial to say we need to make a change in healthcare. We rely way too much on harsh, unnecessary treatments - like antibiotics, large amounts of ibuprofen, opioids, anti-anxiety medicines, sleep aids and more - to treat ailments that can be effectively managed with natural, gentle remedies. So often, these common ailments are symptoms of a larger issue that go unnoticed and untreated. It will be for the benefit of all patients and the entire medical system, if we can more efficiently manage these conditions while providing quality, comprehensive care. Although I think allopathic medicine will be forced to incrementally change, I don’t foresee a major overhaul, however I strongly believe that complementary and natural medicine can play a major role in reforming the system. My goal is to find a place where homeopaths and allopathic doctors can work together for the benefit of everyone.
