July 5 Minute Spotlight – Homeopathy First

As a young gymnast I looked to alternative medicine for my injuries. I was drawn toward the healing arts, but was not convinced that western medicine was the best or the only way. I considered Chiropractic College, but chose PA school for the flexibility it allowed. My first job was in Three Rivers, CA with the late Dr. A.J. Rice. He was my mentor in Homeopathy and I was extremely fortunate to have had hands on training from him while also attending Homeopathy School of Colorado (now Homeopathy School International) for a 500 hour certification.

While I have been practicing as an allopathic provider for many years now, I prefer to use homeopathic treatment. I find homeopathy to be a safer and gentler option than western medicine. Homeopathy can lead to better and longer lasting results with less side effects. When treating my own friends and family I always choose homeopathy first, which led to the name of my practice. I believe that western medicine has it's place, but it should be what is used as a last resort for chronic conditions.
