I have used herbs and other holistic medicine for entire adult life. I met my husband at a health food store, actually. Homeopathy only recently came into my life, however, about 10 years ago. A friend who introduced me to homeopathy when my son was an infant, and I successfully addressed his first case of croup with homeopathy. I went on to address croup successfully several times, in each of my three children.

If you are the "homeopath" of the family, then you'll want someone else to be able to take the helm while you do the work of birthing your babies and give you the remedies you may need. Emily offers a strategy for doing this that I think is brilliant!
Here are a few of the topics Emily shares her homeopathic experience on:
