Homeopathy is an elegant system of healing that uses small doses of a material in a diluted, potentized form

It requires in-depth understanding of you as a whole person and everything that is part of your inner and outer world.  Most importantly, homeopathy has the ability to gently touch places not accessible through other therapies and bring healing; and it does all this without suppressing the illness.

There is a need for patience with this treatment because there are many thousands of remedies to choose from and getting the exact match requires persistence.  Once the remedy has been taken, we evaluate together if it is the correct one. When the right remedy is found thebody gets the picture of what it is supposed to fight and gets busy.

Acute illnesses like colds, flu’s, aches, and pains are usually self limiting, but can pass more quickly when treated with homeopathy. Chronic illnesses, ones that people have had for a long time, are deep seated.  These take time with any type of treatment and, when it’s appropriate, homeopathy can speed the healing process.  Also, homeopathy can help prevent illnesses by strengthening the immune system.

Suppressed disease occurs when an illness is treated by relieving symptoms that then manifest in a stronger more serious form later.

A common example of suppression is a child with eczema, (a skin condition of extreme dryness, peeling and redness), that has cortisone cream prescribed, and the skin heals.  The child feels temporary relief but later develops asthma because their illness was suppressed(pushed in) by the cortisone cream.

By misunderstanding the nature of the disease it was suppressed, pushed into the lungs, and made more life threatening and difficult to treat.  When a person experiences disease from a suppressed illness, homeopathy can bring healing and restoration that can appear most miraculous.

Another principle of homeopathy is that a current illness can be caused by illnesses from previous generations in a client’s family. A classic example of this is illnesses that stem from an ancestral treatment of Syphilis with mercury.  Mercury is a toxic metal that many years ago was used to treat Syphilis.  Unfortunately, this treatment had the effect of suppressing the Syphilis and then killing the person from the toxicity.  Any children born from a person receiving this treatment could have the taint of the suppressed Syphilis and mercury in their genetic makeup.  Generations later, family members can develop many different diseases from this heritage that include cancer, ulcers of the skin or stomach, and unwholesome desires like lust, greed, anger.  This is just one example of hereditary illness that can affect us.

I use testing, your history information, and detailed study to determine the proper remedy for you.

Homeopathic medicines are easy to take; I usually dispense these in water, in either a daily or single dose application.
