"I studied at McMaster University and graduated with honors receiving my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Things were amazing! I was 22 years old and living the dream. But as the years passed I realized something was missing in my life. I felt like I had a greater purpose. Although nursing was a wonderful job, I knew I was meant to heal others through holistic medicine.
In 2008, I decided to train for my level 1 Reiki with my master Duff Doel. I continued my training in 2011 with my second degree in Reiki. This system of healing was powerful and transformational yet still there was something missing for me.
I broke my foot in 2012 and had to take 6 weeks off of work. I then had no excuse as to why I could not take the time to be still, be present, silence my mind and listen for the answers I had been seeking.
I had heard someone talk about their personal experiences with homeopathy and although I was not sure what exactly it was, I had to find out. I did my own research and was amazed by the wonderful healing properties that these homeopathic remedies provided. I decided to find a school that could offer me further knowledge and practice and came across the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine. I decided to do their beginner distance education course to see if I liked the program and within 2 sessions was hooked.
Something had shifted inside of me and everything felt aligned. I took this as a sign and without hesitation enrolled into the 3 year program. I then went on to do my post graduate in Homeopathic studies at CCHM and continue to practice to this day with the same joy and enthusiasm I had for it when I first started.
I have never looked back and I am grateful to have been blessed with the opportunity to now practice Homeopathy and treat those who are suffering from the multitude of illnesses we see today.
My Experience with Homeopathy
I had suffered for years with multiple gut issues, which included bloating, constipation and fatigue. I went to see my homeopath and through an initial consultation we covered not only my physical symptoms but also looked into my emotional health. Generally, it's the 15 minute, 1 complaint appointments I was accustomed to so this was new for me. I asked my homeopath if he was sure he even wanted to know about all my emotional issues I had been facing over the past years and he told me that homeopathy treats both the physical and mental/emotional complaints of a person and each patient is treated individually. My course of treatment would not be the same without discovering the emotional contributors and stressors that lead to my physical symptoms (which by the way were only my bodies way of telling me something was wrong internally).
Another reason why I love homeopathy. I was treated with a homeopathic remedy and immediately noticed a change not only in my gut symptoms but also how I felt in general. I had more energy and noticed the little things that were upsetting me I could more easily let go.
After multiple follow ups to ensure I was on the path to recovery and continuing treatment my gut troubles had drastically improved. I was able to see my homeopath less and less as I got increasingly better and now I still see my homeopath to this day but only when my system needs a tune up or my health feels like it's taking a declining turn. There is no greater gift than your health and I was so glad I decided to put me first and start to prioritize mine.
