A Short Account of Dr. Feingold’s Personal Journey to Alternative Medicine
I had been a practicing pediatrician and adolescent gynecologist for decades before it became clear to me that my practice was, essentially, a revolving door. Many of my patients did not actually become healed. They got better, yes. But, then they got worse again.
The pharmaceutical drugs that I was prescribing in ever-increasing strength and toxicity did not seem to make a whole lot of difference in the long run. Children still came down with ear infections, relapsing all winter long, whether or not they consumed the antibiotics that I prescribed for ‘cure’.
Mothers in my practice were whispering about something else. And I started to learn about that something else. I am indebted to the group of mothers in my practice in Jerusalem in the 1980s and early 1990s who taught me so much. When I began my formal education in homeopathy, I knew I had found the answer to cure. Not only does homeopathy have the ability to cure chronic relapsing conditions that Western medicine cannot, but it does so in the gentlest manner, without any discernible side effects.
Homeopathy amazed me. It will amaze you too.
When I started practicing homeopathy, I realized that it alone was not the whole story, either. I soon learned that I needed, in most cases, to integrate it with herbal remedies and nutritional supplements to effect a deep healing.
And then a few years later, I realized that most of what I was doing in my practice of homeopathy, herbal remedies, and nutritional supplements, was possible to do without me, the physician. I realized that the most profound answer to the conundrum of Western medicine was the educated woman and mother, the keeper of the family’s health.
