Why I became a homeopath
Aged ten I had three major abdominal operations and pneumonia with two weeks in intensive care and further 11 weeks in hospital. Although conventional medicine saved my life I was left with emotional and physical scars; I know how important it is to be listened to. In my early twenties I started to self study herbalism and healing, but it was homeopathy that really helped me on a completely different level with my persistent symptoms.
In the mid 80’s I met many homeopaths and found out more about homeopathic philosophy and materia medica, this led to me enrolling with Misha Norland’s School of Homeopathy from which I graduated in 1990.
I have continued to experience the benefits of homeopathy in my own life as I developed severe asthma in my 30’s which made daily life a struggle. Improving my health took a lot of work, but I am now able to manage any flare up of symptoms with homeopathy and able to go on 30 mile hikes, at one time I could not walk to the Post Office without getting wheezy.
These experiences have helped me to be someone who cares about you and your health. To offer you hope and reassurance based on my own healing journey and the results that I have seen in my clinic over the last 26 years.
