Hi. I'm Nancy, I am a graduate of The Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy. I received diplomas in Classical Homeopathy and Naturopathy. I also received a diploma in Massage Therapy in 1991 and had a 21 year career as a Massage Therapist. In 1996 I received certification in Reflexology through the Reflexology association of Canada.
I was introduced to Homeopathy about 20 years ago. I was very inspired by the gentle yet profound healing powers of homeopathic remedies and the difference they made in my life. In 2012 I moved from Winnipeg to study Classical Homeopathy in Montreal. I received my diploma in 2016.

Homeopathy has been used for over 250 years. It is a complete system of medicine developed by the German physician and scientist, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.
Homeopathy is used to restore health and relieve suffering. Homeopathy works by triggering your body's natural ability to heal. First your body's natural healing power is stimulated to correct its own state of dis-ease and then it is strengthened to be more resistant to the ailment in the future. Homeopathic treatment involves the use of remedies that are gentle, safe and effective for both acute and chronic conditions. When homeopathy is applied consistently and properly it can be combined with your standard medical care to speed recovery and help to sustain optimal health and wellness.
Homeopathic remedies are made in homeopathic laboratories right here in Canada as well as many other places in the world. Homeopathic remedies have been scientifically tested on people, in studies called provings. Once a remedy has been studied and proven it is added into a Materia Medica. This is a book which homeopaths refer to when prescribing a remedy.
Homeopathic remedies are made from natural sources found in nature such as plants, minerals and animals. They are prescribed in very small energetic micro doses. As a result, homeopathic remedies are gentle, safe and have no toxic side effects. They will not interact with other medicines and are non-addictive. They are safe for people of all ages. They come in the form of tiny round pellets, tablets or liquid drops.
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed according to the Law of Similars, known as like cures like. What this means is the symptoms that a person suffers from are similar to the qualities in the remedy prescribed. This match is referred to as the similimum. Taking the similimum sends an energetic signal to your Vital Force and the process of healing begins. The early signs of recovery are reflected in your nature as a more easy going, adaptable, stress free experience of day to day life. As the strength of the Vital Force improves, health and wellness are restored.
The Vital Force
You are made up of flesh, blood, nerves, organs, bones, mind, emotions... and energy, also known as the VITAL FORCE. This energy has been referred to by many names, such as chi, qi, prana, energy body, life force, dynamis, etc.
The Vital Force is an energy that enables all living things to self-heal or to preserve life by adapting to changes in the environment. The Vital Force directs the different body systems to function as a harmonious whole and you cannot sustain life without it.
In homeopathy the symptoms of disease are seen as secondary responses of a deeper disturbance to the Vital Force. The dis-ease is first observed on the mental and emotional level and then progress to the physical level. The outward symptoms are a reflection of the disturbance within your Vital Force. In other words, when we address the Vital Force we are getting to the root of your dis-ease. When the right remedy is prescribed, first the Vital Force regains strength and then the outward symptoms start to disappear. With homeopathy, if we can catch this energetic dysfunction early it can halt the pathological progression of disease.
Early signs of dysfunction within the Vital Force include stress, fatigue, feeling out of sorts, a lack of interest in life, troubles adapting to your environment, and feeling stuck. When you are experiencing any of these, it is the ideal time to see your practitioner.
Homeopathy and Conventional Medicine
Homeopathy can be used safely with conventional medicine. Depending on the situation it may also be used as a replacement to pharmaceutical drugs. As a trained professional I encourage you to have a medical doctor and to have regular medical care to maintain an optimal level of health and wellness.
Your First Appointment
A health history form is provided via email for you to fill out before you arrive. Homeopathic treatment is a shared responsibility. The information you provide during your first appointment is what I use to choose the remedy that is most similar to your experience. It is important your answers are as complete as possible. Accurate information will help lead me to your similimum.
We will begin with what is most important to you. I will guide you through this process by asking questions that help you, provide me, with a full picture of your own unique experience of life. Together we will explore this on all levels. The physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.
Your first appointment is between 1.5-2.5 hours. You will receive your first remedy within a week. This gives me adequate time to find your remedy match, order it, and mail it to you.
Follow up appointments are scheduled for 4-6 weeks after you take your first dose to monitor your progress and to make any changes.
Other natural supports may also be prescribed to help support specific physical and mental ailments. These supports include cell salts, trace elements and gemmotherapy.
