Extraordinary care begins here

What Patients Think.

If you are exploring the possibility of trying homeopathy for your health, whether preventative, anti-aging, as complimentary, or to treat what no one else has been able to help you with,  you are in the right place.

Are you looking for someone who will listen to you and spend the time to help bring you back to the balanced state of health you should be in?  Call me at (416) 823-7918 to see how we can work together. You will get a real person and a warm welcome.

Homeopathy is a system of holistic, and natural, nano-medicine.

Homeopathy is the second most popular medicine, and the fastest growing form of complementary medicine in the world.

Homeopathic Medicine is regulated by Health Canada.

Homeopaths in Ontario are regulated by the College of Homeopaths of Ontario, under the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care.

Regulating homeopaths is part of the government’s plan to build a better Ontario through its Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care, providing patients with faster access to the  right care, better home and community care, the information they need to live healthy and a health care system that’s sustainable for generations to come.

Do you remember the last time you felt carefree, unencumbered, and full of energy?  Homeopathy will help put you back on that track, whether you are suffering physically, mentally, or emotionally. 

Homeopathy is all about you.

Your circumstances are uniquely yours and so your homeopathic treatment is custom-designed to your individual needs. This way you derive the greatest benefit.

Your sessions take place in a very comfortable, welcoming, and warm environment. You are encouraged to relax and take all the time you need to talk about your concerns and to tell your story in your own words, to reflect on the meaning of your feelings and experiences, in the context of your daily life.

Typically the first session is two hours in length, and repeat consultations are one hour.

I was asked what makes the experience of coming to see me different than going to anyone else. It’s a good question and to address it I had to look at the testimonials that people had graciously given for me:

The essential theme that stands out is that I listen to, and take care of my patients.

The experience that one can expect with me is that time stops for us as we delve into the medical and personal history which produced a timeline of presenting symptoms. Typically it is a learning session, with both of us understanding and connecting the symptom picture in such a way that breaks down complicated and seemingly separate circumstances into a manageable and holistic treatment.

Time is of no essence in the consulting room. 

One does not come here thinking that you will be in and out quickly; it does not happen and I do not book appointments that way. Phone calls are part of the practice and are not considered consultations to be paid for.

Homeopathic Dispensary

I have a small dispensary for convenience, not obligatory in any way so that you get exactly what is prescribed and not have to search for it. You will know how to take what is prescribed, and most likely will take your first dose here so that you are comfortable with the new regime and what you should feel when you take your prescription. In this way, you will feel supported and comfortable in what you are doing and how you are doing it.

A little about me

I was a homeopathic patient long before I became a homeopath. I am a mother, wife, daughter, sister, artist, lover of animals and plants. I organize and facilitate continuing homeopathic education. I mentor homeopaths. I have volunteered and assumed managing positions for many years in community theatre, women’s organizations, chaplaincy, and community organizations and associations. I played the flute and was in a band for 10 years and then a flute choir for 2, and sang 2nd alto in my synagogue choir.  I have been told that I am a bit of a “Renaissance Woman” – isn’t that a cool compliment? Most importantly, I hope that my vast life experiences and desire to help and be uplifting, will influence the homeopathic consultive process and be of benefit to you.

What are your termites? (Did you read the comic above?) Often people focus on the symptoms…but what is the cause? For instance when you have an itch you want to stop the itching, but what caused it in the first place?

People ask me, “do you treat…..?”  The answer is mostly yes.  Yes, if it is within the scope of homeopathy.  With homeopathic treatment I can eliminate,  balance, alleviate,  relieve or decrease the overall symptom picture.  Homeopathic  treatment works immediately to relieve symptoms while treating the root cause.

The following illnesses will give you an idea of what I can treat:

Mental & Emotional care including mood swings, focus, Anxiety, stress, Depression, ADHD, ADD, Cerebral Palsy, Bipolar, Addictions, Eating Disorders,  Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Tourettes, Spectrum Disorders ( Autism, Down Syndrome), Alzheimers, Dementia  and more…

Chronic Physical care including Pain, Carpal Tunnel, Tennis Elbow, Frozen Shoulder, Arthritis, Epilepsy, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, skin disorders (Psoriasis, Jaundice), Heart Disease, COPD, Epstein Barr, Women’s Health (Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, PMS, Irregular Periods) Acid Reflux, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colitis, Crohn’s, Hyperthyroidism, Multiple Sclerosis (MS),  Liver Disease, Kidney Disease, Osteoporosis, Infertility, Lupus, Diabetes, STDs, Herpes (Type 1 & 2) Tuberculosis,  Cancer pain,  and more…

Acute care including colds, influenza, asthma attacks, panic attacks, ear aches, stomach upsets, travelers diarrhea, allergic reactions,  Fungal infections, Hand Foot and Mouth Disease, ringworm, hemorrhoids, candida (Yeast infections), STIs (Chlamydia, HPV), Bronchitis, sprains and healing fractures.

Holistic Nutritional Counselling.   Diet is an important aspect of my approach to treatments. That’s because for many who suffer from chronic complaints there is a correlation to the gut mirobiota that resides in the gastrointestinal tract. The gut is now recognized as the seat of the immune system. Many problems arise from an imbalance in the microbes which can cause an inflammatory response to food, the environment, and even to our own bodily processes.

In terms of homeopathic treatment, the concept of an unbalanced diet and lack of a good regimen would be seen as a maintaining cause for what ails you and an obstacle to cure. So we will discuss your diet and regimen and make adjustments so that, together with homeopathy, you will come back to a state of health quickly, safely and gently.

Then there are greater obstacles to health:

Metabolic Balance® the Food Prescription

I am a certified Coach for a nutritional program that is aimed to facilitate a permanent lifestyle change for your health.  If you suffer from Metabolic Syndrome, or any inflammatory conditions,  this program is for you. It is a  month commitment and I will be holding your hand and guiding you and supporting you through the process while you see the very quick  and positive changes to your health.

This is a little preamble to familiarize you with what I think is interesting in my homeopathic world.  Here are some articles that I have written, and some space for other media that I would like to add.  Please let me know if you have taken the time to read some of my ramblings, or articles, and even some of my blogs.  I try to keep things interesting, or short, because I know that most of us no longer read.  We skip through. We skim. We speed up and click out. Quick.

A little about homeopathy and being a patient of it…..

There is no other medical profession in which the term “doctor”, which means ‘teacher’, is most apropos than for homeopaths. This is because homeopathy is a therapeutic healing modality that is so different than all other medical sciences, in philosophy, treatment, and in its consultative approach.

When homeopathy was in its heyday in Ontario (the 1800s through 1920s) there existed, side by side, Homeopathic Doctors and Homeopathic lay practitioners. The practitioners were valued in the rural areas. Women and men were also equal in homeopathy before the emancipation of women.

Emily Stowe, a Homeopath, was Canada’s first female doctor (1831 – 1903). Stowe was an advocate for women’s rights. She could not get into medical school in Canada but was successful in being accepted to the New York Medical College for Women Homeopathic, graduating in 1867.

Dr. Emily Stowe was the founder of Women’s College Hospital in Toronto, Ontario.

Homeopathy is being regulated in Ontario again after a hiatus of approximately 38 years. Although we have not managed to get the title of Homeopathic “Doctor,” those that graduate from many other countries are.

I have an extensive collection of books on homeopathy. Homeopaths are called “doctors of the books” because we are always consulting books to find the right remedies, study homeopathic philosophy, or study materia medicas. Homeopathy is quite complicated and I am always trying to learn more. This transfers to my clinic life:

In my practice much of the time spent in the consultation is about you learning to see the symptoms of the disease, recognizing and watching for changes, understanding the healing course, and being aware of the interconnections in illness and health.

Unlike patients in other medical practices, homeopathic patients become educated consumers and very active in recovering and maintaining their health.

Most people with chronic illness who come to my practice arrive here as a last resort. They are disappointed, disillusioned, sometimes desperate, skeptical, and yet – still hopeful. By the time they reach my door they are looking for a magic bullet. They do not know what the practice of homeopathic medicine entails. They only know where they have come from, not where they are going to. Those that say, “I’ll try it” without conviction, drop off quickly because the gift of homeopathy does not strike as a gust of wind, but rather as a gentle breeze. Those that are fixed on perceiving their health in the way of conventional medicine may not have the desire to become a homeopathic patient because it means that the doctor-patient relationship is really that – a relationship, a partnership, so to speak. Those that do commit become ardent homeopathic patients and in time get comfortable enough that when they get an acute illness self prescribe, and prescribe for their families and friends. This is a complete system of medicine, unique and different from conventional standards.
