Homeopathy is my passion. It has been ever since I could speak and pronounce the names
of the remedies my parents gave me for ear infections: Pulsatilla and Chamomilla. These names sounded so magical and beautiful to me that I decided that when I grew up I should have twins with those names. Don’t just yet call child services, I have not traumatized any children with these names so far!
As a teenager I became chronically ill and could not apply for medical school as a result and so I gave up my long cherished dream of being a homeopathic doctor. There were no homeopathic schools that accepted high school graduates as students at the time and I figured it were for the better because I had more faith in the combination of conventional and homeopathic medicine anyway. And so I went on to study Public Administration and worked in Brussels for Dutch regional representatives. After receiving my Masters degree in European Studies, the global economy had suffered a lot under the economic crisis and the job market was very tight, not to mention that my illness had developed to the point that I really could not work anymore anyway.
That is when my long lost dream started to whisper in my ear again. Was there not a way to study medicine after all and become a homeopathic family practitioner? It kept occupying my mind but there was no way for me to study medicine anywhere in Europe. However, then the website of the Center of Homeopathic Education (CHE) caught my eye which had both a Bachelors accredited course in homeopathy which included a decent basis in anatomy and physiology. Within a couple of months I moved to London and started the course.
Because I have always loved children, I specialize in helping couples conceive healthy babies, helping women enjoy their pregnancy by resolving minor or complex complaints, and helping mothers and babies flourish in the first years after birth. Today I get to lose myself in homeopathy daily. I love connecting with my patients every day and empowering them to take their health back into their own hands.
Thanks to being back under homeopathic treatment myself, I have seen a lot of improvement in my own health too. I no longer need my zimmerframe to walk, nor am I on any medication or painkillers, and the progress I have made so far gives me great hope for the future of my patients as well.
Fifteen years ago, I could have never imagined being able to work every day in the field that I am deeply passionate about, getting married to a lovely man and enjoying my doggy Dee Delight (who is a true delight!). I can even wear heels every now and then which was completely unimaginable!
I am a living example of how homeopathy can change people’s lives and I want to pass that on to others.
