Locating a Good Homeopath

The National Center for Homeopathy publishes a directory of homeopaths in the United States and Canada. It is available from them as well as from Homeopathic Educational Services of Berkeley. Homeopathic study groups are usually the best resource for learning about homeopathy and for getting recommendations for the best practitioners in the area.

There are, however, good practitioners who are not listed in this directory because they may not need or want additional publicity.

Other sources to consider checking are:

  • Health food stores.
  • Homeopathic pharmacies.
  • Conventional pharmacies that sell homeopathic medicines. 
  • Alternative newspapers and magazines.
  • Your friends
  • Our Community Forum. We have several practitioners who visit the Forum from time to time and will be able to add further information, or answer your questions.
  • Interview several practitioners since there are various specialty board certifications available, some of which are open only to those who have certain professional degrees. Medical doctors (M.D.s) and osteopathic physicians can obtain a doctorate in homeotherapeutics (DHt) from the American Board of Homeotherapeutics.

    Naturopathic physicians (N.D.s) can obtain doctoral certification (DHANP) in homeopathy through the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians.

    Questions to ask:

  • Does the practitioner specialize in homeopathy?
  • Does the practitioner use classical homeopathy?
  • Where was the practitioner trained?
  • How long has the practitioner actively been using homeopathy?
  • Has the practitioner had experience with the diagnostic category in which your condition fits?
  • Is the practitioner board-certified in homeopathy?
