MEET THE BOARD
Ilana Meyers, CCH,
CHC Board Director and Item Writing Committee Chair
Please join us in celebrating the people who work behind the scenes to move the CHC and the homeopathy profession forward each day! We extend heartfelt thanks to each board member.
This month we asked Ilana Meyers
to share her story:
How did you begin your journey as a homeopath? Thirty years ago, I was introduced to homeopathy by a close friend who was working for a homeopath. She suggested a remedy that ended up curing a chronic condition I had suffered with for years! This piqued my interest and compelled me to immerse myself in the study of homeopathy. After 20 years as an "amateur"
, I decided to make it official by attending a program in upstate New York and ultimately finishing my clinical studies at Teleosis Homeopathic Collaborative in Boston, Massachusetts.
What is your vision about the future of Homeopathy as a profession?
I see the future wide open with possibilities. I think as more and more people become educated about the benefits and possibilities homeopathy has to offer, it will continue to grow. It's important to be generous with our knowledge and to just keep sharing our successes and experiences with the public.
What message do you wish to extend to the CHC certificants, candidates, and exam applicants? Homeopathy is not the path of least resistance. Upon embarking on a career in homeopathy, one must always be ready to educate consumers/clients, look forward to a lifetime of learning for ourselves and be prepared to defend our point of view. There will always be naysayers; we can only try our best to help people who want to be helped.
One can never have enough patience, determination and curiosity. Homeopathy will always provide something new for us to discover and study.
Anything else you would like to share? If I could do it all over again, I would go back for a degree in nursing or psychology to complement my certification in homeopathy. It's never too late-I may end up back in school yet again!!
