My Personal Journey

Dr. SebastianLike many others, my introduction to alternative medicine came from an effort to find relief from various medical complaints for which I could not find help through conventional medicine.  The improvement in my health from the use of homeopathic medicine was so great that I began to read about this system of medicine.  As my interest in this medical system grew, I discovered that I wanted to become a homeopathic physician.  This decision required a return to college for pre-med studies, then medical school and residency, before finally fulfilling my dream to become a homeopath.  I have now been studying homeopathy for 20 years, and continue to be as fascinated as I was when I first experienced its healing powers.

Although I was able to help many patients through the use of homeopathic medicine, I also came to realize that I could not help everyone.  This realization led me to the study of nutrition and functional medicine.   With an integrated approach using homeopathy, functional medicine, and nutrition as well as conventional medicine, I now feel that I am able to help most of my patients.

I can never promise that I will cure every patient who seeks treatment from me.  What I can promise is that I will seek to understand “the story” of each patient and to act as a guide towards a healing path.
