Homeopathy & Flower Essences
What is Homeopathy?
For those of you who are unfamiliar with Homeopathy, it is a 200 year old form of medicine. Homeopathy is based on the principle of "similar cures similar." That is, if a substance can cause symptoms in a healthy person, then in SMALL AMOUNTS, it can also stimulate self-healing of SIMILAR symptoms in a sick person. Homeopathic medicines are derived from plant, mineral and occasionally, animal, sources. (Homeopathic remedies are NEVER tested on animals; they are tested or "proven" on humans). Homeopathic remedies are strictly regulated in their production, use and sale by the FDA (unlike many herbs and vitamin supplements). For further general info on Homeopathy, please contact the National Center for Homeopathy at www.homeopathic.org. or call 877-624-0613.
Every major westernized country such as England, New Zealand, Canada, Australia and many other European countries, recognize homeopathy as a legitimate and effective form of medicine. The Royal British Family has a homeopath that lives with them in Buckingham Palace. Homeopathy has been scientifically proven throughout Europe and recorded in such major medical journals such as the Lancet and the British Medical Journal . After many years, Homeopathy is finally making a come-back in the United States and is even being used in certain prestigious medical centers such as Scripps, here in So. California.
Homeopathic consultations are very individualized and last from 1 to 2 hours. Please see further info under the "Contact & Consultation" section.
"Not long ago, I suddenly awoke one morning to find myself covered in hives. The same condition had occurred years ago and even a head of a Dermatology Dept. could not help. So I decided to try a holistic approach. I first went to my acupuncturist who thought this was food allergy related. I was told to stop eating dairy, wheat, spices and stop drinking occasional wine. This elimination diet did not help and so I decided to call Kim. She had helped cure our cat, Miss T, of chronic urinary tract troubles. Kim found a very obscure homeopathic remedy that helped and the result was sensational! Not only were the hives gone, but I was able to start drinking and eating normally again."

What are Flower Essences?
Flower Essences are similar to Homeopathy in how they are formulated and their method of action. (i.e. indirect substances that stimulate the body to heal itself). Flower essences are not to be confused with Aromatherapy or herbal treatment! Flower essences were developed initially by Dr. Edward Bach, a brilliant English physician and bacteriologist, at the beginning of the 20th century. They promote physical and emotional healing by PERMANENTLY CHANGING EMOTIONAL AND BEHAVIORAL PATTERNS. Thus, they are an excellent adjunct to psycho-therapy, counseling, behavior modification, etc.
An example of how Flower Essences would help a person on both an emotional and physical level would be someone who has a history of migraines or stomach upset/gastric problems whenever they experience stress in their lives. By evaluating and treating HOW they experience stress and what emotions are involved, we will permanently change destructive patterns and say, help them to be calmer, less fearful, less agitated or anxious. Thus, the physical problems are also lessened.
Flower Essences can be used to treat many different emotional imbalances: grief, post-traumatic stress disorder (wonderful for soldiers returning from war), anxiety and depression, low self esteem and confidence issues, fear and panic attacks, learning and concentration difficulties (both ADD and ADHD). Children and animals are greatly helped by the gentle non-toxic approach of using these Essences. I have also seen many cases of physical healings brought on by Flower Essences.
