  Pt. 1: Homepathy, Sweet Homepathy
By Pierre Fontaine, RSHom CCH
Twenty years ago I was studying nutrition, diet and supplementation. I was taking a lot of supplements thinking this was the best I could do to stay healthy. At the time, I had more supplements in the apartment than you could find at the Vitamin Shoppe. Back then, few people were taking even Vitamin C, never mind single amino acid and trace minerals or enzymes. I was also taking shark cartilage pills every day because “sharks don’t get cancer!”
Pt. 2: The Depth of Homeopathy
By Pierre Fontaine, RSHom CCH
Homeopathy is made of two words:  homeo meaning “similar” and pathy meaning “suffering” - similar suffering. Incidentally, Samuel Hahnemann – the founder of homeopathy as discussed in my first article - also coined the term “allopathic” meaning different suffering because of the use of medication to counter symptoms produced by the disease. 
Pt. 3: Homepathic Remedies and Case Study

By Pierre Fontaine, RSHom CCH
A homeopathic consultation is a long series of questions that delve deeper into the disorder. The goal is to form a direct line from the main complaint to the deeper level of experience not present in our conscious mind.  The questions are designed to bring the totality of the illness to life and aim to connect on a physical, emotional and mental level. The correct remedy is chosen according to the precise understanding of the disturbed Vital Force physically, emotionally and mentally.
