Classical Homeopathy and
IRIS HAGEN RATOWSKY
I am a classical homeopathic practitioner and a practitioner of craniosacral body therapy. These two modalities of healing are gentle and effective methods of stimulating your body’s own healing response to help you maximize your health and sense of well-being. They are effective for many types of illnesses and chronic conditions and are especially helpful in illnesses and pain for which conventional medicine offers no lasting or non-toxic treatments.
My goal in working with my clients is to help them improve their overall health and sense of freedom physically, mentally and emotionally, as all levels of the being can be involved in sickness or restriction. By using homeopathic remedies and/or craniosacral bodywork we can support the whole being in returning to health safely, rapidly and without toxic side effects.
I did my undergraduate and graduate work at U.C. Berkeley, and my homeopathic training at the Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine. I trained for craniosacral work through the Upledger Institute and the Milne Institute. I have studied and practiced homeopathy since 1985. I was the head teacher and the Director for 8 years at the Berkeley Institute of Homeopathy, a three-year professional training course for homeopathic practitioners in Berkeley, California. I taught for ten years as a core teacher and curriculum planner at the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy in San Francisco. I served for many years as the Registrar of the North American Society for Homeopaths, and on the board of the Council for Homeopathic Certification as Vice President, working in both positions to define standards of practice and education nationally for professional homeopaths in North America and to evaluate applicants for national certification. In my practice I work with both adults and children and live and practice in Berkeley, California.
Beyond Flat Earth Medicine, by Dr. Tim Dooley, M.D. This is a wonderful overall guide to the principles and process of homeopathic medicine by a wonderful man who attended Pacific Academy of Homeopathic Medicine in my class. He has very generously made the first edition of his book free online at BeyondFlatEarth.com. The 2nd edition is also available in paperback book form on Amazon. I have recommended it to all my clients to help them understand what we are aiming for and the process of homeopathic treatment.
