1. Which accomplishment/event/moment are you most proud of in your career as a Homeopath?
I opened my clinic doors in Jan 2012,after graduating in June 2011 and my first year was pretty successful! I was so ecstatic! I have since been contacted to write for 3 magazines which I do on a fairly constant basis. I also was featured on CBC Radio which I did an interview discussing homeopathy for bug bites. This year (2013) has been my second year of business and I have seen over 200 new patients with great results! But the thing I am most proud of as a homeopath was being asked to speak on CBC radio and hearing my interview and the feedback from customers.
2. What three aspects of your Homeopathic education contributed the most to your success?
Every single thing I learned through my schooling has played such a large role in my success. Even those SRP's that you look at in class and said "there is no way I will ever see that", oh man you really do and when you hear it, it's like “oh wow I can't believe I actually heard that” and then just like every good “Joe Kellersteinian” you try to disprove what you just heard until you can't anymore, and just jump for joy! My level of education I know has been above par. I can't tell you how much I value the education I received at CCHM. To all future homeopaths coming out of CCHM don't be silly - do the THESIS! It is so important!! You only do school once and it has helped me so much in my practice because of how much I had to study the remedies for it.
3. Share with us a recently cured case with Homeopathic Medicine.
My most recent case is an 84 year old male patient with 16% kidney functionality. He was told he was not going to make it to October and was told to make his arrangements. We have been treating him since April and his blood counts have almost completely normalized, including his urea and creatine levels which were over 375! His doctor told him the creatine count would never come down. He has had increased energy and endurance and he is sad to report that he no longer falls asleep when his wife talks to him (he says he now has the energy and is forced to endure it all) Both he and his wife are incredibly excited to be going to speak to the doctor about getting the renal functionality tested as it is October and he is “still kicking”, and doing 80% better.
4. Do you have anything else you would like to share?
I just did a second interview for CBC radio (Fri Oct 11) which once again I have gotten lots of feedback on.
