Certified Classical Homeopath
The homeopathic process is an individualized and holistic approach to healing because every person is unique.
Andrea Tolle first contacted a homeopath 14 years ago when her son was just a baby. “I was curious about natural options for my child in anticipation of common childhood health complaints. I wanted choices along with what was conventional.” At the time she knew very little about homeopathy, only that is was a non-toxic way to stimulate healing. Her first use of a homeopathic remedy was for her baby’s chronic constipation. “after only 2 doses it worked like a charm and the issue never redeveloped.” That response made her quite curious and she read more about homeopathy on the internet. She found many articles discrediting homeopathy so, at the time, she did consider that her baby’s recovery was just coincidence. At age 4 her daughter developed asthma with all the classic symptoms and needed an inhaler. Asthma was in her family history with the father and grandmother having had childhood asthma that didn’t resolve until their late teens. Andrea resigned that her daughter would also have to live a childhood like they did. Her daughter was prescribed an inhaler and she took some allergy medicines for a year. The inhaler was absolutely necessary to have on hand at all times - her attacks definitely constricted her breathing and she could never tolerate the hay barn with all the dust. When her daughter was age 6 she just happened to mention to her homeopath about asthma, but assumed the family history was too much for homeopathy to help. However, her family homeopath said “oh yeah, bring her in.” With little confidence Andrea gave her daughter the prescribed remedy and thought “even if it helps 20% that’s worth it.” Within 6 months all her asthma symptoms faded to being completely gone. Her daughter could run a mile in humid air or be in the hay barn without a problem. She is now 13 years old and continues to be symptoms free. “I kept asking myself and her father, did that really happen? I was completely amazed.” That personal witnessing of such recovery got me extremely curious and I had to pursue this incredibly effective, affordable and safe system of healing. What I was impressed with the most was that it wasn’t a bandaid for symptoms. Homeopathy actually stimulates the body’s own capacity to heal itself so that there are no more symptoms and the person is better on many levels; physically, emotionally and mentally.”
After 4 years of study Tolle is now a graduate of Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy and a Certified Classical Homeopath. She has had an office space in the Arndt Chiropractic office for over a year. She also has an office space at Vitality Chiropractic in Rochester. “I absolutely love what I do and feel so fortunate to have discovered such a life-changing modality of healing.”
There are studies, research and 200 years of data that support homeopathy. A wonderful example is a large scale Indian study when the country had reoccurring Japanese Encephalitis epidemics. In 1999 the Indian gov’t implemented the B.C.T Project to affected Japanese Encephalitic areas of the country. The government used conventional means for one affect area of the country and homeopathic remedies for the more severely affected area of the country. The rates of Encephalitis went down significantly in the homeopathic group and went up in the conventionally treated group. Several other studies have been done in other countries with impressive results. In America homeopathy was extremely successful during the Spanish Flu pandemic when there were still homeopathic hospitals. There were almost no deaths if homeopathy was implemented, but a high rate of mortality with conventional means. More and more people are wanting options in their health care. The public is realizing there are other choices. There has been a consistent growing interest in modalities that address the energetic state of a person such as homeopathy, acupuncture, healing touch, reiki, qigong, and EMDR.
The National Center for Homeopathy describes homeopathy as “a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated.”
