Health Inn Presents Renita Herrmann Interview on PTSD Trauma and Traumatic Brain Injury
Health Inn internet TV & radio show host Debby Bruck interviews Renita Herrmann, Homeopath and Executive Director, Homeopathy Institute of the Pacific where she cares for veterans of war with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after brain injury.
Education: To offer seminars and other educational programs to homeopathic practitioners, homeopathy students and the general public
Outreach: To operate free or low-cost homeopathic clinics for low-income and at-risk individuals. To raise awareness about homeopathy through the media, through public presentations and events, and by interfacing with practitioners of other healing modalities.
Research: To collect and assess clinical data accumulated from homeopathy clinics, and to publish evidence-based research results.
HIP Dreams To Provide A Completely Free Clinic
Homeopathy Institute of the Pacific has been seeing veterans at two sites in San Francisco, with referrals from the San Francisco Vet Center for nominal fees and hopes to have a daily clinic by the end of 2013.
Hip envisions a place where veterans can get “real health, and real care”. They offer immediate attention and care for the fragile and vulnerable. "It is not only an honor to serve our country by helping these brave men and women; it is part of our mission."
HIP has worked with homeless populations since 2005, many with PTSD, who have rarely been given the attention they so desperately need. Veterans may have unseen wounds. Homeopathic medicine has shown success with these severe cases.
First ever partnership with UCSF students and HIP
Four students from University of California San Fransisco Medical School shadowed homeopaths at the HIP clinics for 4 days after a call with a request to provide this opportunity in alternative health for career training.
In addition, The Vet Center affiliated with the VA refer the most serious PTSD cases to HIP for care.
About Renita Herrmann: After becoming interested in the alternative medicine field while still an airline pilot, Renita studied during layovers and received her MS in Natural Health (summa cum laude). She completed a four-year program at the Institute of Classical Homeopathy and went on to volunteer thousands of hours to help those in need. She recently assisted in Ghana, Africa, at Adjoa Margaret Stack's homeopathy clinic in Tamale (inland) and in Senya (coastal) where patients had a variety of injuries, acute, chronic and contagious disease.
Renita has extensive experience with the homeless, veterans of war, young and old, women and children gaining a wealth of experience learning and healing trauma victims. Renita has also started a second homeopathic clinic at COTS in Petaluma, to treat more homeless people and veterans.
Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes and in all countries of the world. Whether from natural disaster, contagious disease, accidents or destructive relationships, homeopathy can assist the healing process. We welcome everyone to learn more about brain injury, concussion and how homeopathy can help. Homeopathic medicines address all layers of disease, pain, injury and trauma.
Host Debby Bruck, asked Renita Herrmann to speak with the public about her field of expertise in honor of World Homeopathy Awareness Week (WHAW). The World Homeopathy Awareness Organization directors chose TRAUMA as the 2013 theme, with programs on this topic happening the month of April around the world. We celebrate the work of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann (April 10, 1755-1843), the founder of this system of medicine. We honor all those who practice, teach, train and wish to learn more about homeopathy, which has documented incredible success in over 200 years. In this program, Renita will give real life examples of cases and talk about some of the remedies that can heal the physical, emotional and mental trauma.
Debby feels that only through citizen education, awareness and action will more people learn the benefits of homeopathy and how it can address the deep wounds of those affected by PTSD. Debby and Renita are members of the National Center for Homeopathy (http://homeopathic.org) and the North American Society of Homeopaths (http://www.homeopathy.org) Homeopaths will meet and learn more about caring for trauma at the Annual Joint American Homeopathic Conference, April 19-21, 2013
