Classical Homeopathy

Non-toxic Medicine
For All Ages, All Genders

I look forward to helping you attain the health you deserve.  1 in 12 -14 people worldwide uses Homeopathy (depends on sources referenced *). It is a safe, effective medicine with a long history of use that stretches across centuries and continents. Homeopathy is helpful for anyone, from babies in-utero, to relieving the suffering of loved ones in their dying days.

Worldwide, Homeopaths successfully have been treating people with COVID-19, diagnosis or not. Since early in January of this year I have helped people who probably had Covid-19. They were not being given tests, because no tests for Covid were available where they live, or in many places are not being made available, still, unless people are so sick they are hospitalized. Doctors have been telling people not to come in and that, there is nothing to be done, even when Covid-19 is suspected. This time period is opening the door to people in Western societies realizing that there is much possibility outside of Conventional Medicine, or to be practiced concurrent with Conventional Medicine. Homeopathy has a long history of efficacious use in Epidemics and Pandemics as we are treating the whole person, uniquely. We are not treating the disease but use symptoms to understand how disease is playing out in an individual, and that helps us find a homeopathic medicine which matches a person's needs. The operative words are: people with Covid-19. There is not one "Covid" remedy. Each person's needs are unique. Our work is in support of the person's innate ability to regulate their own physiology. We give guidance that if people are concerned with symptoms they are experiencing, they should, of course, consult with their doctors and that, if anything changes suddenly for the worse, immediately they should consult with their doctors. We welcome the day when Big Pharma stops obstructing, trying to keep people from access to supportive modalities of healthcare which people want, and which help them, and for the day when more Conventional Medicine practitioners seek practice with professional Homeopaths, for the good of all..

As you read through my site, you'll have a chance to come to understand the rich history of Classical Homeopathy, including in Epidemics and Pandemics, and my commitment to its full practice. We have some 225 years of clinical observation behind us, and as many years of stimulating people's ability to heal from the inside, out.

Here you can learn why over-the-counter Homeopathy can be helpful, but is likely only to aid in acute situations without deeply affecting longstanding susceptibilities. Classical Homeopathy's goal is to strengthen you so that your immune system works at its highest capability, and to bring you to freedom in your life.

Classical Homeopathy is a process, and for long-lasting effects when treating anything other than a true Acute, it will take time to be able to affect you on a very deep and sustaining level.

Additionally, WHO acknowledged that Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world.

*** I'm based in Berkeley, CA, serving the SF Bay Area in person, and treating via Skype for those outside the area

*** I treat women, men, children, queer, trans, and questioning people, and people of all ages and in all experiences of life. I treat during pregnancy, throughout life, and on the deathbed to help allow for gentle transition, and can treat loved ones, also, as they move through the many emotions they may face as they experience life transitions

*** Skype appointments available when meeting in person won't work. I prefer to meet in person at least for the initial appt., but if you live elsewhere, or otherwise cannot meet in person, this is a good option which also leads to excellent results

*** Home Appointments can be arranged. It is very important to the process that we meet in a private space with no interruptions unless they really cannot be avoided

Weekend appointments available

ragrance when we meet  (contact me if you need clarification about this) and please set any cell phones or other electronics off to avoid pulling in WiFi signals.
