Growing up, I loved to know as much as possible about what made the world go round and humans go about. I read as much as I could on everything under the sun, and sought a deep understanding of the natural world and human existence. Early on I thought I would become a scientist or engineer. But when I moved away from home to begin my university studies, I developed a skin eruption. I was prescribed a cortisone cream to suppress the inflammation, which I was horrified to learn was chronic and possibly lifelong. At the same time the doctor agreed that the condition had been caused by stress. Something didn’t match up in my mind: If this condition was stress-related, how did the cream address the cause of the problem? I soon began searching for a method of addressing the underlying stress. This led me to classical homeopathy, a system of medicine capable of bringing balance to the disharmony that underlies acute and chronic conditions. As my skin condition gradually resolved, my understanding of health and disease and general worldview were transformed forever, and I decided I would study homeopathy and naturopathic medicine.
My clinical approach is founded on a deep commitment to the highest standard of healing through classical homeopathy. This deep-acting form of homeopathy promotes healing of both physical and psychological conditions by addressing their underlying causes at the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. I apply my big-picture understanding of determinants of health, honed through years of formal and continuing education and over a decade of experience, to each patient’s unique pattern of illness. Homeopathy is far more than an adjunct or substitute for conventional medicine. It is, in fact, a powerful tool for spiritual development, and as such it can help overcome many illnesses that cannot be addressed by conventional means because they reflect an underlying imbalance at the spiritual level.
