How—and why—did I go from being a highly trained Reproductive Endocrinologist and Infertility specialist, to a Holistic Homeopath, collaborating with nature to help people heal?
Throughout my teens I suffered excruciating back pain.
I was in and out of hospitals. The nurses and doctors were insensitive, more focused on their duties than me as a person.
But a seed was planted:
I thought, “I can do this better and with a heart.”
Thus began my journey into the healing arts.
I became a nurse, and patients would say, “You’re almost as smart as a doctor.”
Another seed being planted:
After 11 years of medical school and residencies, I became an Obstetrician-Gynecologist specializing in infertility.
I built a highly successful and compassionate practice.
But my back problems worsened until I could no longer work.
I had four unsuccessful back surgeries. I faced the fifth surgery with little hope, when a dear surgeon friend recommended that I try Arnica, a widely used homeopathic remedy that she successfully used in her own cosmetic surgery practice.
I had never heard of Arnica or homeopathy.
The doctor who was going to perform my fifth back surgery said there was a 98% chance it would fail and that I’d spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair on pain meds.
I told him he was wrong, that it would succeed, because I had Arnica and very importantly, I now had hope.
The surgery was a success.
And despite the doctor’s grim prediction, I got better!
The pain was greatly reduced and I started to have a greater sense of well-being. And I wanted to learn more about this natural substance that had given me back my life.
I attributed this renewal, to the homeopathic remedy, Arnica.
Yet another seed was planted.
I then decided to pursue homeopathic training, continuing my passion to help people heal.
In 2000, I became a student at the Hahnemann School of Homeopathy in California, commuting from New Jersey.
I graduated in the class of 2004, and began working with Nancy Herrick, a world-renowned homeopath and one of the founders of the Hahnemann School.
She found my constitutional homeopathic remedy, the one that put my body into true balance for the first time.
Knowing what it felt like to have the correct remedy gave me greater insight into helping my own patients find their true constitutional remedy.
For the last decade, I have been blessed to heal many patients with a wide variety of health issues.
Thanks to homeopathy, I’m finally fulfilling my dream of helping people heal in harmony with nature.
