“The natural healing force within each of us is the greatest force in getting well.”

-Hippocrates-

I believe that our bodies are highly complex miracles of nature with an innate ability to heal themselves. I know that might sound unlikely, especially if you have been living with ongoing health problems some time. But you have surely observed how your body healed a scratch, a burn, a bone fracture, a virus or an infection.

In fact your organism works constantly to protect you, regenerate you, heal you, keep you warm and keep you cool. This perfect balance is called homeostasis. Your body is continuously fighting off viruses, bacteria, fungi and a myriad of other pathogens without you even noticing. Sometimes however, when the imbalance is greater, your organism produces symptoms that you will notice: A fever, a headache, nausea, vomiting, inflammation etc. It is crucial to understand that these symptoms are not the disease. They are your bodys best effort to re-establish homeostasis. Usually after a period of feeling unwell, you will be back to your old healthy self.

There are moments however when the bodys defense mechanism does not have the strength to re-establish equilibrium. There may be several causes for this:

  • Prolonged exposure to environmental pollution or toxins
  • Mental, emotional or physical shocks
  • Extended use of symptom suppressant drugs such as corticosteroids, antibiotics, immune suppressants or other strong medications.
  • Unhealthy diet and/or lifestyle

I have always had a keen interest in the healing sciences. After a career on the business side in the pharmaceutical industry and many years of research through self-study and examining different healing methods I came to the conclusions that in most situations the best way to keep in or return the body to health is through nutrition and homeopathy. Therefore I chose to study plant-based nutrition at e-cornell and Homeopathy at the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine and the International Academy of Classical Homeopathy.

Every individual is unique, there are no two cases of asthma, bronchitis, depression or eczema that are the same.  Every person has his distinctive set of signs, symptoms, sensations and concomitants. For that reason my approach to healing always begins with deep listening. I regard it as a great privilege and an absolute necessity to understand all aspects of your suffering. I also have the training to administer a full physical exam which is an additional valuable diagnostic tool. Finally my background in conventional pharmaceutical therapeutics and nutrition helps me to recognize and eliminate any possible obstacles to cure. The aim of homeopathic treatment is not the suppression of symptoms, but true healing that will bring about equilibrium and cure on all levels: physical, mental and emotional.

The highest ideal of cure is rapid, gentle and permanent restoration of the health, or removal and annihilation of the disease in its whole extent, in the shortest, most reliable, and most harmless way, on easily comprehensible principles.

-The Organon of Medicine, Samuel Hahnemann, Founder of Homeopathy-
