A radio interview with a Recent Graduate from CCHM

The small, rural town of Erin has a population of about 12,000 and is home to notable residents such as Gordon Downie (Lead singer of the Tragically Hip) and Mike Clattenburg (Film Maker). So when I was invited for an interview on the Erin Main Street Radioʼs “Business Intelligence” show to showcase my homeopathic practice I jumped at the opportunity to showcase Homeopathy. After being approached by Jane Farris, one of the shows journalists, and asked to do the show I was excited, nervous and thrilled all at the same time (but mostly nervous). I, of course, accepted and then anticipation set in. What did I do? Took a dose of the homeopathic remedy, Gelsemium, about half an hour before I was to be interviewed - live! (Gelsemium: Trembling, stage fright, forgetfulness, complaints when anticipating an event)

My 30 minute interview aired on CHES 88.1FM on Monday October 29th and started off with the question: What is Homeopathy? I kept my answer simple: Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses diluted substances which stimulates the body the heal. To a homeopath, health is being free of symptoms on all levels - physically, mentally and emotionally.

Where and how does one become a homeopath? The Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine is the only Canadian college fully accredited by ACHENA which is where I chose to pursue my studies and professional training in becoming a Homeopathic Practitioner. The 3 year program consists of over 1600 hours of clinical training as well as Anatomy & Physiology, Nutrition, Pathophysiology, Physical Examination, and the homeopathic approach to specific clinical conditions, such as: neurology, immunology, gastroenterology, gynecology, urology, rheumatology, respirology, proctology, dermatology, gerontology, cardiology and psychology/psychiatry.

Can you share an experience that is most memorable with relation to your practice of Homeopathy? There was one clinic patient experience, a teenager, who came to the CCHM intern clinic with complaints of warts which surrounded the nail-beds of both fingers and toes. The patient had been dealing with these warts for several years and chose homeopathy as a last resort. We took the case, prescribed a remedy and then scheduled a follow up appointment for the patient in 3 weeks. At the follow up appointment, the patient seemed different - maybe it was the smile that I hadnʼt seen in the initial appointment, or the eye contact. The we looked at the patients fingers and toes, and the warts...were gone! I was shocked and so happy for the patient.

What kind of conditions do you treat? I treat conditions such as depression, loss & grief, emotional eating, stress, musculoskeletal issues, anemia, acute complaints and childrenʼs issues to name a few.

How does one find you? I have two locations where I treat patients. At my private home clinic, Clarity Homeopathy, as well as at the local health food store, Treehaven. I can be reached at 519-993-3254 / [email protected] / www.clarityhomeopathy.com

After some small talk the interview ended and so began the friendships that have since followed. After residing in Erin for over 6 years, I have officially been accepted into the community and respected as a Professional. I take great joy in my practice of homeopathic medicine and am very thankful for the privilege of utilizing the art of Homeopath and for the opportunity to share my story on the air on Main Street Radio.
