I've always loved animals and have a desire to help them, thanks to my parents, who allowed me to bring a menagerie of domestic and wild animals home and care for them. After over 20 years of traditional veterinary practice, I had a personal health crisis which made me question the wisdom of drugs and vaccines. Holistic medical wisdom made me well again. Looking at alternatives, I took Dr. Pitcairn's homeopathy course, which changed my thinking on everything medical. The more I learn, the more I appreciate the elegance of homeopathy, combined with excellent nutrition. I see the results in my own health, and that of my animal friends. Above all, I have a clear conscience, knowing I am following the first rule of medicine, "Above all, do no harm."
