An important part of my practice is educating about homeopathy. I regularly present public classes about the benefits of homeopathy and how to treat common ailments. Examples include Homeopathic Care of New Mothers and Infants, Women in Midlife, and Natural Treatment of Colds and Flu.
I have taught classes for food co-ops, community education programs, and parents’ groups. A typical class lasts 90 to 120 minutes.
A favorite class is Homeopathy 101: Opening the Home Medicine Chest which covers how to treat your family’s everyday illness with safe, gentle homeopathic remedies including: how to use remedies effectively for ear infections, flu, stomach upsets, fevers, cold, injuries and emotional shocks; top ten homeopathic remedies to keep on hand; and guidelines for when to consult your homeopath and when to call a doctor.
One of the toughest issues parents face is determining if they will vaccinate their children and what to do if their children get sick if they do not vaccinate. For those considering alternatives to conventional vaccination, I offer Homeoprophlaxis: A Homeopathic Alternative to Vaccination. This class is designed to help you make informed decisions concerning your child’s health and determine if homeoprophylaxis is a good option for your family. The class covers:
• How your child’s immune system works
• Healthy support of fevers
• How vaccination works and impact on immune system
• Homeoprophylaxis (HP): a disease prevention model that promotes normal immune system development
• Clinical findings of HP Program
Want to avoid the flu shot? Kids in school and worrying about what they are exposed to? Travel plans and want to stay healthy? Attend a Flu Prevention Clinic where we’ll cover: flu prevention through homeopathy and chiropractic care; natural, safe and effective treatment of flu symptoms; and keeping your immune system strong. This class will help you go into winter prepared with what to do if you or a family member gets the flu.
Contact me if you would like to set up a class for your group or organization or if you would like meet one on one with me.
“Jackie’s Homeopathy 101 class was just what I’d been looking for to gain tools and confidence to heal common ailments more naturally. I’d been looking unsuccessfully for a class for some time after my son was born. When I reached out to Jackie she offered to set one up if I was able to help recruit enough people to join in. She covered the history of homeopathy in addition to helping us navigate the difference between herbal and homeopathic remedies. I would highly recommend the class for anyone who’s curious to learn more about how to use homeopathy!” — Julie H.
