Linda Miller, BMUS, CCH, RSHOM (NA), College Director
I have always embraced alternative medicine, starting with mega-vitamin therapy and vegetarianism in my teens and followed by two home-births in the ’80s. This interest, combined with our family business venture into a health food store (fueled by my now grown daughter’s lively entrepreneurial spirit), informed my decision to attend Vancouver Homeopathy Academy in 2003. During my studies in Vancouver I also apprenticed with Julie Lee in veterinary homeopathy.
Upon graduation in May 2007, I began my homeopathic practice at Xerion Homoeopathie, a bustling clinic in northwest Calgary built and maintained by my daughter and I until October of 2014. I completed the requirements for the Council for Homeopathic Certification in October 2007 (#462) and subsequently became a professional member of the Canadian Society of Homeopaths and the North American Society of Homeopaths. I have published articles in the October 2007 BC Society of Homeopaths Bulletin and in the November 2009 Journal of the North American Society of Homeopaths, conducted two provings, lectured at home, in California and Pune, India.
In October 2008, I became a faculty member of the American Medical College of Homeopathy and taught their First Aid and Acute Care six-month course to a class of 22 in Calgary. This class was repeated in 2009/10. Teaching parents how to use homeopathic remedies safely and effectively at home is an ongoing source of inspiration.
Further interest in education in homeopathy in Calgary led to the founding of the Western College of Homeopathic Medicine of which I am Director. We have operated a successful Student Clinic since June of 2009 for students eager to advance their studies, and to provide the community a low-cost option for homeopathic treatment. Our four-year Diploma Program began in September 2010 with a rigorous medical science component, a firm base in Classical Homeopathy, and broad experience through the practical setting of Student Clinic. I practice and teach in the context of the principles and tools of Classical Homeopathy. My ongoing studies in North America and India continue to expand this aspect of my practice and teaching.
Seven years of experience responding to various health conditions from mild to serious in people at all stages of life at Xerion has informed the formulations now known as the Mederi line of homeopathics. Behind each, there is a face and a story of someone we sat and talked with who got better with the remedies we provided. Their journeys have made an indelible impression on my heart.
Now seeing clients at Dr. For Moms, #120, 3820 Brentwood Road NW and Sage Plus Clinical Pharmacy, 860 13th Street SE. I look forward to working with you!
