Student Diaries – Christine
||For eighteen years, Christine worked as a Veterinary Nurse, a job she loved, but she found herself becoming increasingly concerned by the amount of drugs routinely prescribed to animals. Concluding that there must be a better way, Christine decided to train as a homeopath.
“My second year at college is going very well and I’m learning so much…”
My second year at college is going very well and I’m learning so much. We have studied many subjects so far including;
• The three Miasms
• Immune pathology
• Arthritis and treatment
• The Endocrine System
• Helios Homepathic pharmacy
• Thymus Gland
I have been so busy the last few months that I am behind on the homework and writing up cases. I’m busy with work and I have a family as well so fitting it all in does become difficult. We also must write a monthly student journal over 3yrs, which a diary of your journey to becoming a homeopath. It is great to record your journey as you change so much in 3yrs.
I am seeing patients now regularly at student clinics, which is proving to be a huge learning experience. I am also amazed how quickly the patients are improving with homeopathic treatment.
While studying to be a homeopath I have been working as a Veterinary Nurse. I decided it was time to move on from this job and move into a job that will help my career. I now work at a homeopathic pharmacy making remedies and giving acute advice to members of the public. My decision to change professions has been the best decision I have made. I was unhappy in my old job, and this new job means I am now learning so much while I’m still working. I am working with homeopaths and pharmacists that have so much knowledge that everyday is a learning experience.
“This is my first student diary entry, so I wanted to explain my reason for choosing to study homeopathy…”
This is my first student diary entry, so I wanted to explain my reason for choosing to study homeopathy.
For many years I took allopathic medicine for various complaints, but over the years I noticed these drugs just suppressed my illness, and I would always get the condition or complaint back again. I used to ask doctors for alternatives, and I was told there wasn’t anything else I could take. I felt hopeless that there must be something else that could help me? I found homeopathy through recommendation and went to see a homeopath, and it worked so well on my children and I that the rest is history. I have used homeopathy for 14yrs for myself and my 2 sons for acute conditions, and regularly seeing a homeopath for constitutional treatment.
I have worked as a Veterinary Nurse for 18yrs and have loved the job, but the problem I have found is the animals are prescribed allopathic medicine. These drugs are from pharmaceutical companies, and just like human medicine these drugs suppress the disease, so it is not a long-term cure. It gets frustrating working in this environment, and I started realising that I needed to think about working in a different profession
In 2016 I decided I wanted to train to be a homeopath, as I wanted to work with people to support their health and help them heal from chronic disease.
I found the ‘Southern College of Homeopathy’ and decided to join this college as it was one weekend a month. This was manageable with my current job, and I would get to meet like minded people, be in a classroom setting, and meet lots of homeopaths.
I have now completed my first year, and have started my 2nd year.
