When There’s a Brain Injury at Birth

Much of my work includes tracking incremental changes towards health and wholeness in my clients. “So your foot pain is only once a week now instead of daily?

I welcome people with a...Continue reading

“I never completely recovered from…” Can homeopathy help?

Many of us, maybe most of us, could finish this phrase easily. Maybe for you it was a childhood injury that changed your life. For someone else, it was an intestinal disease they got while traveling. For your friend, the turning point was emotional, perhaps losing their first loved one. For whatever reason, we never...Continue reading
