Why I chose to become a Homeopath?
Lot of people ask me why I chose Homeopathy as a profession, it’s not that common? The reason goes back to my childhood: My mother had an infection which affected her spinal cord and was paralyzed for a few years before she passed away when I was an 8 year old. I had seen a lot of doctors trying to treat her but unfortunately no one could really do much and her disease just kept progressing. Since then I was always drawn towards medicine and healing. When I had to make a career choice my father suggested I try Homeopathy as it was known to be an effective healing art. Perhaps if my mom had access to a good Homeopath back then in the beginning of her illness, she would have still been around?? I can speculate as much as I want but the fact is that it’s not uncommon for Classical Homeopaths to come across such cases which are considered ‘difficult’ or ‘devastating’ by the conventional medical community, where after being treated with Homeopathy they have gone on to have good health for a long time! This gave me more faith in the system which was discovered by Dr Samuel Hahnemann more than 200 years ago; I persisted and am still around practicing it.
