What brought you to homeopathy? Tell your 150 word inspirational story that connects you to homeopathy. How has homeopathy changed your life?
I got acquainted with it in the 60s in France, and was impressed. In the US, I was fortunately able to find homeopathic physicians for treatment during most of my adult life, although I lived in the Midwest, where homeopathy is little known at present. I'm sensitive to many allopathic medications, and homeopathic treatment helped with chronic issues in ways that allopathy never could. When I moved to CA, where there are homeopathic colleges, I was delighted to start becoming a certified classical homeopath myself.

Use homeopathy, am a homeopath
What is your vision for the future of homeopathy
Hopefully continued widespread availability. Historically in the US, when homeopathy became extremely popular as an alternative to medicine, it was quelled by allopathic interests. It was largely kept alive by women working "below the Radar" in treating their families and friends using homeopathic kits. The present efforts toward professionalization through certification and the support of health freedom legislation, state by state, is tedious, but a proven way for alternative health modalities like homeopathy to find a stable niche. My vision is for homeopaths, homeopathic education, and homeopathic remedies to continue to be freely available to those who wish to use them.
Why I would like to join this network?
I want to meet like-minded people, I want to learn how to market my skills, I want to be involved with the homeopathic community at large
Write detailed background to introduce yourself. What school did you attend? Year of graduation? Degree or diploma? Where do you practice?
I was a college professor for 36 years before retiring and starting my formal study of homeopathy. My professional research was in the language and customs of US minority communities in the Midwest -- first, rural French speakers; then African-American elders who had migrated from the rural south for urban industrial jobs. I started my homeopathic practice in 2002. As a homeopath, I've specialized in working with people in difficult situations. My way of practicing incorporates spiritual counseling and awareness, psychological insights, medical data, and classical homeopathy, using whatever analysis method (e.g. Ramakrishna, Sankaran, Boenninghausen, Kent, Mangialavori, Vithoulkas...) best matches the case as it was presented. Each client is a teacher for me, and we establish a working partnership focusing on optimal health.

Being treated homeopathically rather than medically most of my life has certainly resulted in much better overall health. I also find that homeopathy is an incredibly powerful metaphor for the oneness of life and the universe. Health, from a homeopathic perspective, is harmony with what is, with the drive of our vital force toward wellness and balance. As I seek greater spiritual consciousness, I'm glad that I am blessed to work professionally in a medium that supports this holistic form of awareness.
What are your interests besides homeopathy? Inquiring minds want to know.
Spiritual awareness, family dynamics, ethnography, communication dynamics. I'm always fascinated by the spirit of places, what makes living there unique. Also my grandchildren live here, and I'm thoroughly enjoying being part of their family. I spend time every day writing poetry, and am at the point where it's time to start publishing what I've written. I love where I live because people in general are open and accepting of a wide variety of viewpoints, and because many opportunities exist to enjoy great art, music, dance, and food. I love the Piedmont forests -- their peace and serenity. I'm one of the founders and leaders of an initiative to support "Aging in Place" in suburban neighborhoods, creating a sense of place and community so that neighbors know and care about each other, and collaborate in assembling the resources that people might need to use to stay in their own home and community and remain healthy as long as possible as they age.
