I became very ill several years ago during law school. Allopathic medicine provided no relief and I became more and more ill. Upon reading the book The Tao of Health I became intrigued over this entirely different approach to achieving health. It made sense. The body wants to be healthy, we just need to learn to listen to it and cooperate rather than coerce. I completed an extensive series of water fasts and also used colonics. I got better. From that moment on I was hooked.
Why homeopathy? I must confess that I do not fully understand how it works – but work it does. Its approach is premised upon bio-individuality with the cure being specific to the overall needs of a patient’s particular issues. I am also deeply interested in nutrition and feel that homeopathy provides a perfect adjunct to dietary interventions.
My hope is to provide the opportunity for people to live a more joyful and productive life. The best years of our life should not be spent carrying an oxygen bottle around and wondering if you will make it to the next Christmas. I am speaking of the growing senior population and the chronic illness that plagues the majority of these people. Of course I would like to use homeopathy for my family and friends. However, I also would love to have a practice that helped seniors to live healthier, happier, and more productive lives in their later years.
