How did an Economist become educated and trained as a homeopath?
In my 20s, while working for the Ontario Treasury Department I developed debilitating allergies and began searching for something that wouldn’t make me drowsy and irritable. I wandered through health food stores looking for a solution. I saw a flyer for a presentation about homeopathic treatment, was intrigued and attended. It was my first exposure to alternative medicine.
It was amazing! I had an “ah-ha” moment during Dr. Trevor Cook’s presentation, at that time Queen Elizabeth’s physician.
I had graduated from University with an undergraduate degree in Science focusing on Biology and Chemistry. But I was never introduced to Homeopathic Medicine. A whole new world opened for me. I was hooked!
My epiphany led me to a local Russian trained homeopath (allergies cured!) and then inspired me to study homeopathy.
I updated my physiology and anatomy from my university degree and then studied locally at the Toronto School of Homeopathy and continued with The School of Homeopathy (Devon U.K.)
After practicing for several years, I heard about a post-graduate program led by cutting-edge Canadian homeopath, Louis Klein F.S. Hom. I continued my studies with the completion of the post-graduate Master Clinician Course (done twice in eight years). Lou’s program expanded my skills and my knowledge enormously.
I loved it! I knew I had found my passion. I still feel the same 20 plus years later.
I regularly attend seminars, research, and training all over the world. I love to incorporate new methods and therapies into my Practice.
A recent passion has been learning about the Plant Theory developed by Jan Scholten. My current research is how crystal energies connect with mineral classification also developed by Jan Scholten. My education never ends.
I have been in practice for over 20 years at first in downtown Toronto and now all over the world through Skype treating adults, children, and pets.
I am an Associate Member of the North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH), a Member of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce (HCC) and the International Association of Attunement Practitioners (IAAP).
Until April 1, 2015 legislation, I practiced as a Homeopath in Ontario for almost 20 years. Since that date, the term Homeopath is now under the control of the Ontario College of Homeopaths.
To call myself a Homeopath in Ontario I must be registered with the College. I chose not to become a member of the College.
Given my Practice has seen increasing numbers of international patients, membership in North American and European organizations better meet the requirements of my patients.
I service international clients from various places in Canada and throughout the world.
