Over the last 200 years many definitions of “classical” homeopathy have been used. At the core of nearly all of these definitions are the following key elements:
The Law of Similars has been documented since at least the time of Hippocrates (ca. 400 B.C.), but it is Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), a German doctor and chemist, who is credited with founding homeopathy. He discovered the truth of the Law of Similars by testing small doses of medicine on himself.
By 1900, about twenty percent of doctors in the United States were homeopaths, but due to various political and social changes, homeopathy became relatively unknown in the US until recently. There is wider acceptance of homeopathy in such countries as France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina, India and Great Britain. In fact, the family doctor to England's Queen Elizabeth is a homeopathic physician. The World Health Organization estimates that it is currently practiced by over 500 million people worldwide.

Homeopathic remedies start with substances, such as herbs, minerals, or animal products. They are then highly diluted. Homeopathic remedies aim to stimulate the body's own healing mechanisms. A person’s constitution includes qualities related to creativity, initiative, persistence, concentration, physical sensitivities, and stamina. The right remedy for a condition will take all of these aspects into account, so each diagnosis and remedy is individualized.
The U.S. Congress passed a law in 1938 declaring that homeopathic remedies are to be regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the same manner as nonprescription, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs. This means you can purchase most homeopathic medicines without a doctor’s prescription.
There are currently over 8200 homeopathic remedies in existence as of 2017. I buy my homeopathic remedies from homeopathy pharmacies in American and the UK. To learn more about how a remedy is made, click on the button to learn more from a pharmacy.
I offer in-person or remote sessions. I have clients across the globe. I can do this through Skype, Zoom or phone. I want my clients to feel comfortable when working with me. I will discuss the process and expectations when we begin our consultation.
Initial consultations are long because I am very adamant about finding patterns so I work with my client's detailed history when the goal is the Flower of Life package). I start by asking for current symptoms. We then move into history beginning with their parents during conception (if they know). Moving through their life until the present. Often times, they will remember things that they had forgotten and see situations more clearly. To tidy up, I will go through the areas of the materia medica such as nose, ear, eyes, head, extremities, skin, etc to extract more information for the physical pathologies.
There's really no wrong or right way to get though this process. If the information is too uncomfortable to talk about, we skip it. I can generally find a remedy through physical symptoms alone. Communicate with me what makes you feel comfortable.
Once I determine the remedy based on the totality presented, I will offer the remedy name, provide a flower essence combination that is best suited for the current state and deliver an "after consult" document.
A follow-up consult is scheduled within a months time as part of the initial consultation fee.
Depending upon the person, my initial consults are generally 2-3 hours. There are times where it runs shorter or longer. I am very flexible.
After you take the appropriate remedy for your individualization, you may notice some changes. Some clients experience a period of exceptional well being and optimism. Sometimes your symptoms can appear to get worse for a short time (This is a good sign that the remedy is taking effect). Another good sign is tiredness. To me, that is your body indicating it is moving energy into a needed are to heal. Sometimes a cold, rash or some form of discharge may appear as a ‘spring cleaning’ effect which means your system is going through a clearing out stage. Similarly, old symptoms can reappear, usually for a short period. These symptoms will pass and must not be treated, as they are a very important part of the healing process. If any response to your treatment troubles you, do contact me as soon as you can, as it is important to know what happens as treatment progresses. You might also want to make notes of any changes and take them with you to discuss at your next appointment. I recommend journaling (necessary during the Flower of Life package).
I ask that my clients understand that it's a journey, not a quick fix. There are typically many layers to go through.
After the initial consult and included follow-up, I offer a 6-month cost-effective package.
Also, I do offer discounts to veterans and help with the cost in special circumstances.
Many times, a FSA or HSA will pay my fees and I have had clients buy essences with their account cards.
I will never tell you to discontinue seeing a professional medical care. Homeopathy can be used in conjunction of other modalities. In my practice I suggest and use flower essences, and tissue salts. In my healing journey, I personally found that energy healers to be very valuable and I just happen to be married to a very good Shamanic Practitioner. What we do compliment very well.
I may warn you against certain substances that are inimical of your remedy or discuss with you substances that may hinder your growth and change.
