A Holistic Approach to Wellness
had nothing to lose and I gave it a try. It worked.
Soon my dogs and I were all under the care of an experienced homeopath and I was determined to learn more about this fascinating practice. After completing a four year study program and mentorship I began offering classical homeopathy services to my clients. If you are searching for a natural approach to wellness for you and your animal partner, classical homeopathy may be an option.
Classical homeopathy as a system of medicine was first formulated by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann in the late 18th and early 19th centuries with its origins dating back to the times of Ancient Greece. Homeopathy is an energy based form of treatment focused on treating the individual with highly diluted remedies which engage the body’s natural system of healing. It works on the principle that “like cures like” - meaning, a substance that would cause symptoms in a healthy person is used to cure those same symptoms in a person exhibiting those symptoms. For example, one remedy which might be used in a person with poison ivy would actually be derived from the poison ivy plant.
One of the greatest aspects of homeopathy is that a diagnosis is unnecessary. When working on a case I am considering the totality of symptoms, not basing my remedy selection on a medical diagnosis. The goal is to heal the being as a whole, and to cure the root cause of the problem.
When you schedule a consult you will be given a questionnaire to complete in great detail. Once your consult is complete you will be able to purchase your remedy at a low cost in most health food stores and online. Your consult report includes comprehensive intructions and Follow-Up Consults are scheduled as needed until healing is well underway.
With the proper guidance and patience, homeopathy can be safe, gentle, and highly effective. It can be safely used alongside most allopathic medicines and is an excellent complement to other holistic modalities.
hen I was introduced to classical homeopathy in the early 2000’s I was skeptical at first, how could a little white pill dropped in water provide a cure? Was a single dose really going to help? But at that point I had exhausted all conventional options in an effort to heal a nagging malady, so I figured I
"The highest ideal of cure is the speedy, gentle, and enduring restoration of health by the most trustworthy and least harmful way." :: Samuel Hahnemann
I put this quote from Samuel Hahnemann, the father of homeopathy, on the front page of my website when I opened my chiropractic and acupuncture practice. At that time, I didn't know very much about Hahnemann's pioneering work. I liked the quote though. It spoke to the ideals that I try to emulate as a doctor: compassion, balance, efficiency, honesty. In my years as both an EMT and a doctor, I've seen a vast number of human conditions with many complicating factors. As a young doctor, it was my instinct to intervene. To heal. To end the suffering of the person sitting before me. After all, that's what every doctor is trained to do. As time passed, and my clinical experience grew, I began to understand the the true "art" of healing is to decipher when to intervene, and when not to. In every complicated case I can think of that didn't respond to traditional or even alternative methods, there was an emotional/spiritual component that hadn't
been connected to the physical symptoms. Some were ready to make these connections, and in a sense, get out of their own way along the path to healing. Others were not. Years in practice have taught me the gentleness that Hahnemann describes. A true healer knows how to walk this fine line, helping others along their journey at their own speed.
When I first began working with Jess regarding animal communication, I was admittedly curious if my animal companions were really talking to her, or if I was just reading a very well written story. Could it be true? My scientific mind questioned it. I found Jess after a difficult experience that left me heartbroken. Her communication, kindness and expertise in areas that I wasn't well versed in helped to heal that situation, and forged an open relationship between my human and animal family. Through Jess, I learned more about spiritual guidance from above and how it affected everyone I cared for. Her knowledge of Classical Homeopathy has added an entirely new dimension to our healing. Eventually, everyone in my family worked with Jess. We saw measurable changes in behavior, as my 2 year old Doberman and 2 year old daughter have each become more calm and well adjusted. We saw incredible scientific results in lab tests of the reversal of our cat's kidney disease. Working through many past and current issues with Jess has helped me make connections in my own healing journey. I thank her for introducing me to Classical Homeopathy, angelic guidance and animal communication. Jess has expanded my horizons and given me tools to help others. Most notably, she has reminded me that we are all conduits of God's healing light. Through this, we can find our own way back to the restoration of health. Jess is an amazing guide along this journey.
Through our time spent together, I've gratefully given Jess the highest marker of my trust: to guide the lives of my children.
