As a homeopathic physician, I believe in treating the person in the disease, not the disease in the person. Therefore, reduction of the individual's susceptibility to the illness from which he or she suffers is my goal rather than covering up the symptoms with suppressive drugs which produce numerous side effects, often worse than the original problem. After close study of one's maladaptive reaction to stress over their lifetime, treatment is given to shift this to a healthier response.
