How did I become a Homeopath?

Quite a few patients have asked me how I became a Homeopath and ended up using this vital medicine for healing. In fact, I had always wanted to be a herbalist! When I lived in London, I always went to Tai Chi classes twice a week and was fortunate to meet some wonderful people as well as have a great teacher. Tai Chi taught me that the most important thing in life was energy or vitality and so when I was fortunate enough to be able to invest the time and finances to study a healing discipline, I chose Homeopathy, due to it’s understanding of the vital force in all of us. I have never regretted my decision and over 12 years later, I am still inspired by Homeopathy and fascinated with the study of it.

It took 5 years study and work for me to train as a Homeopath and further work to become a Registered member of The Society of Homeopaths. However, as Homeopathy makes remedies from everything in life, the study of those remedies is fascinating and probably endless!

New Homeopathic remedies

New remedies are “proved” all the time and add exciting new possibilities into our collection of remedies called Materia Medica. The College where I studied proves a new remedy each year, with Homeopathic students as guinea pigs! New remedies over recent years include Agathis Australis, the giant Kauri tree of New Zealand. Another is a remedy I have come to use often – Falco Peregrinus Disciplinatus or a trained Peregrine Falcon. Another is Carbon fullerenum or as it is often known Bucky Balls or Carbon 60. Nature with it’s flora and fauna gives us a great supply of possibilities!
