1. Which accomplishment/event/moment are you most proud of in your career as a Homeopath?
There are many things that I am most proud of so far in my endeavour into Homeopathy, but I would have to say I am most proud of graduating from the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine. The program at CCHM was challenging and rewarding and by the end of it there was definitely a great sense of accomplishment.
2. What 3 aspects of your Homeopathic education contributed the most to your success?
The three aspects that contributed the most to my success would be the high quality of the professors that teach at CCHM, The student clinic which really helped prepare me for the variety of cases that I have seen in my private practice, and the friendships and relationships that were built during my three years of study. Having friendships with other students and instructors really builds that support network that is needed when a tough case comes your way and you need to bounce ideas off of people. I really enjoy cases surrounding hormonal imbalances.
3. Share with us a recent and successful case treated with Homeopathic Medicine.
Here is a case of a patient I was seeing for issues relating to Menopause.
The patient was a 49 year old female that was having difficulty sleeping. She was waking at night from hot flashes and was very restless. She had whole body perspiration and was better in cool air. She also reported that she was having great difficulties in dealing with stresses that were in her life, mostly associated with her career. Yeast infections were reported on a monthly basis that were very itchy and inflamed. After urinating she would stand then realize she still had "to go". She would sit back down on the toilet and urine would only dribble out. After the dribble she no longer had sensation of having to urinate.
I gave Sepia 200C, one time per week for 4 weeks. After the first follow up there was a 70% improvement in hot flashes and if she did get a hot flash it was only in a hot room. Patient even reported that she had to wear a sweater around the house at times, couldn't remember last time she did that. There was no longer any sensation of still having to urinate after going to washroom. No vaginal itching or inflammation since taking remedy and she is dealing with major stresses at work as if they aren't stresses at all.
When leaving the clinic the patient said "Thank-you for making me feel human again".
I recommended continue taking Sepia one time per week until next appointment.
4. Do you have anything else you would like to share?
Homeopathy is life changing for everyone involved. From the patient to the Homeopath, to the loved ones of the patient, everyone is better off because of Homeopathy.
