What brought you to homeopathy? Tell your 150 word inspirational story that connects you to homeopathy. How has homeopathy changed your life?
I was in my third year of studying naturopathic medicine at the Ontario College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ontario, when we were first introduced to homeopathy. The truth is, I almost dropped out of the program at that time because I could not understand how homeopathy could work. I felt that the college was going to turn us into quacks and that I had just wasted two years of my life. Right around that time all the students - there were only 13 in my year at that time, around 1989 - received a gift a small first aid homeopathic kit from Dolisos. I shrugged, took mine home and forgot about it until a short time after I woke up in the middle of the night with severe acute tonsillitis. My left tonsil was swollen to the size of a golf ball and I could barely swallow. This had never happened before. I lay there, wondering how I would manage to get to the emergency department when I remembered a very recent lecture on the acute treatment of tonsillitis and the mentioning of some kind of snake remedy that was especially indicated if the problem was on the left. Of course, the idea of a snake remedy at the time was almost as disturbing as the concept of ultra high dilutions and potentization, but, hey, I was almost dying so I thought to check the first aid homeopathic kit for - Lachesis, of course. Took two pellets and amazingly, felt better in about 5 minutes. I went back to sleep in a while and on waking in the morning had almost no pain at all.
That's how it all started. Of course, it was an amazing wake-up call and I have not stopped studying and practicing homeopathy for a day since, 20 years ago.

My goodness, homeopathy in many ways has BEEN my life.
It has allowed me to help so many people, thousands in fact. It also rescued me on numerous occasions from personal health problems, including insomnia, severe menstrual pain, agonizing pain during childbirth, chronic fatique syndrome and recurring bladder infections.
What are your interests besides homeopathy? Inquiring minds want to know.
Life in general, the question of what life is has occupied me since I was a child. Nature, consciousness, the mind, all of it interests me. I'm also very fond of comedy. I'd love to be a humour writer or stand-up comedian doing comedy on medicine. I enjoy writing funny stories about my life as a naturopath. You can see some on my website at www.drzimmermann.org.
