“Plan just for the week that lies ahead and take it from there.”

From Susan M., Caledon, Ontario

My interest in homeopathy started at a much younger age than my 44 years. Growing up my parents always gave me and my brothers “sugar pills” when we became ill and no one ever complained! Whenever anyone in the family fell ill, we would first go to a homeopath or an Ayurvedic doctor. The Homeopath that treated me as a child was a professor and we would attend the clinic at the school she taught. I was always so fascinated with the appointments where the doctor spent more time trying to determine who I was mentally and behaviorally than how ill I was or where it hurt. There were students watching and observing every time we visited her.

As I grew up and went away to University, carrying homeopathic remedies with a long list of what and when they should be taken was as normal as taking my toothbrush with me. Many years after I got married and had a child, I started treating my child with the known remedies when he had a cough or cold and finally finding a Homeopath to treat for more serious ailments (allergies, eczema, asthma). I found myself reading more about remedies and homeopathy in my spare time and it nurtured my curiosity to know more. I would guess what remedies would be prescribed before I went for my appointments with the Homeopath just to amuse myself.

I always hoped that being a Homeopath would be my career at some point in life, but as life progressed, I had to shelf the hope of getting back to studying. I was also not sure if I could achieve a diploma with a full-time career and a busy family life.   I had contacted the school earlier this year for more information and was still not sure if I was ready. I found the information overwhelming and spent most of the year seriously doubting my abilities.  As the year ended, I realized that I owe it to myself to take my curiosity to the next level and at the least start with one course. I promised myself that I will not plan for the next 2 or 3 years but plan just for the week that lies ahead and take it from there.
