I graduated from Texas A&M veterinary school in 1971, instinctively knowing that there must be much more to healing than I had been taught. I had an overpowering curiosity to find out. I tried several healing systems over the years but found them all to be eclectic, without much scientific basis and minimally effective. Then came Homeopathy in the early 90’s, and it was love at first sight. My search had ended with this truly holistic, powerful and gentle system of medicine. I was impressed with its long track record, dating from the early 1800’s, of documented cures that were and still are unparalleled today.
My study of homeopathy has been completely absorbing and fascinating since it speaks of the truth about the nature of reality as applied to medicine. Its legacy of literature, its medical schools, and hospitals all but vanished by the early 1900’s – a medical Atlantis with only artifacts remaining. Here was a medicine that was deeply emotional to me as I saw my patients improve and heard the astonishment in their (or their mother’s) voices. Yet, homeopathy doesn’t give you a thing, in the sense that every case is a new riddle – a puzzle to be solved – and I now had to actually think and leave the ease of routine behind. I found that evidence had to be gathered and cases solved inductively, as a detective does at the crime scene. In fact, I may have prescribed a certain remedy hundreds of times yet I find that I have never seen it presented quite like the case standing before me now. Every day is new and fresh to me because homeopathy is always new and fresh, despite, and because of, its invariant principles.
