Occasionally my clients come to me and ask if homeopathy can help with a specific issue. Homeopathy can do exactly that with acute prescribing. It’s the right method for “Acute” issues such as soccer injuries, effects of pregnancy, sports muscle strains, colds and flus, etc. When homeopaths refer to Acutes, it is for issues that only appear once. Our symptoms are a map If it is a problem that has happened multiple times, or at a certain time every year- then we’re in the realm of Constitutional prescribing. This can be confusing to someone who is not familiar to homeopathy. Constitutional prescribing means only that we look at you holistically, and pay attention to all of your concerns. We look at what you come in with, and how it relates to the rest of your health. Each of your symptoms place markers on a map, showing a larger pattern of... Continue reading

I was thrilled to hear about the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage. It's a huge step towards equality. I want to celebrate the progress this country has made, while still acknowledging that there is still a long way to go for true equality. This is truly a historic day! I want to reaffirm that my practice is LFBTQQIAAP friendly. I welcome every person, including all variations of gender and sexuality. My practice is a safe space for individuals seeking health. Knowing who you are is such an integral part of holistic health, and being able to express that is an integral part of freedom. Health and freedom can be suppressed, and this can result dis-ease and suffering. I recognize your individuality and use that for finding the best remedy for you. Continue reading

I have been a fervent advocate of the Charlotte Maxwell clinic from the time I first learned about it. This clinic has been providing integrative medical treatments and safety net social services to low-income women with cancer since 1991. I'm proud to have volunteered at the clinic for the past couple of years. I work with women of all ages and backgrounds, united in our efforts to support their lives with cancer. Homeopathy can provide essential support to the sick person's natural defenses. Because the body is not always successful in dealing with every stress or infection, it is important to find a substance in nature that has the capacity to mimic the symptoms the person is experiencing in order to aid the body in its efforts to defend and ultimately heal itself. Homeopathic medicine stimulates a person’s own healing processes. Treatment covers all aspects of the client's life. It... Continue reading

**Action Alert!** Dear Friend, As you know, FDA’s two-day public hearing to gather information about the current use of products labeled as homeopathic took place in late April. The hearing focused specifically on FDA regulations of and labeling requirements for OTC homeopathic medicines. This hearing was not held to discuss the efficacy of homeopathy, the ability of individuals to practice homeopathy, or to consider the removal of homeopathic remedies from the retail market. But, FDA panelists posed several questions about: • Consumer attitudes about homeopathy • Whether or not consumers have enough information to make informed decisions about purchasing homeopathic...

If you are just returning to the gym or starting a new workout program it’s important to keep up your motivation. Unfortunately the majority of new gym memberships go unused. There are many reasons for this, but one major reason is due to injuries or chronic pain. There are a number of practices that will allow you to make the most of the gym, while keeping healthy. These tips are especially important if you are new to the gym, or returning after a long hiatus. Always begin lightly with stretching and a light warm up to prepare your muscles and tendons for exercise. This enhances your range of motion and warms the muscles and joints, which makes you less prone to injury. Drinking water not only helps you remain hydrated, it also helps prevent injuries. It’s important to drink water during and after working out. Pay attention to your body.... Continue reading
