Jackie Marshall-Szewczykowski

My journey into the Health and wellness field started with my own health challenges. As a child, I suffered from eczema and severe problems with respiratory disorders of Asthma, Bronchitis, and Pneumonia. I was taking drugs and puffers daily for years to control symptoms and was hospitalized once or twice a year. In my early twenties, my health problems had reached a crescendo. Tests were showing that I had lost lung capacity and Medical Doctors recommended a more intense drug regime. They suggested that by my sixties my health could deteriorate to something as serious as emphysema.

I had been introduced to the world of natural therapies a few years before but had not used them in earnest until I was faced with this grim future. So, I decided to turn to homeopathy and started on a true wellness journey. Today I have no eczema, I rarely use drugs to control asthma (once every few years), and no hospitalizations for decades.

Because of what I have experienced on my healing journey and the potential that I see in the use of natural healing modalities like Homeopathy and Biofeedback; I was motivated to learn more. Now I have a passion to be of service to educate my clients and the community at large. I feel it is important to empower others to learn how to achieve wellness physically, mentally/emotionally, and spiritually and how to sustain it.

In the 1990s I received training in Canada for biofeedback and supported a Naturopathic/Homeopathic practice for 12 years. I started my own practice in 2004 as a Biofeedback Specialist approved by the Natural Therapies Certification Board for the US and Canada. I became a Registered Nutritional Product Advisor and commonly recommended homeopathic remedies for acute conditions. Then eventually I studied to take on deeper constitutional cases and am now a Certified Classical Homeopath (CCH) in the US and Canada.

I started my business, “Quantum Vitality” in 2013. Over time, working with clients in Canada and the USA; I have developed a Functional Health System using biofeedback retraining in combination with a skilled application of homeopathy dietary changes, and detoxification as indicated to educate and support a healthy lifestyle. Using these modalities, I devise customized wellness programs.

I am committed to assisting my clients in their journey to root out the causes of their dis-ease. Therefore, my mission statement is that through attentive listening and understanding their needs and goals; I work to develop comprehensive wellness programs that will inspire and support their ability to achieve a profound state of wellbeing.

Deborah Monlux CCH

I manage a thriving homeopathic practice in Park Slope Brooklyn, NY, seeing clients during the long span of time in their lives as a trusted practitioner for whole families.   This model of health care is reminiscent of the traditional family practitioner of a year ago who took time to know the history of each family member and followed up with their needs over time. It proved for us to be an excellent option for parents as there’s room to make long-term health improvements with less emergency intervention. 

Identifying the need for essential preparation for the Council for Homeopathic Certification Exam,

I developed a support and practicum course called the Homeopathy Bootcamp training emerging homeopaths how to prepare for their board exams and realize their full potential as certified classical homeopaths. I facilitate the course to prepare for exams twice annually and present shorter workshops in between the Bootcamp sessions focused on individual domains. I earned the title of CCH, Certified Classical Homeopath from the Council for Homeopathic Certification after attending the School of Homeopathy New York, graduating in 2005. I had my start by lecturing at the New York City Whole Life Expo, Holistic Moms Network, and New York Edgar Cayce Center, serving on their board for 3 years. 

In addition to my homeopathy practice and teaching, I live with my husband, enjoy my young grandchild, and play fiddle with the Catahoula Cajun Band.

Mike Swain

I had a career in  IT, only dabbling in natural medicines with limited success. When a colleague used Homeopathy to cure his family and friends during the 2014 flu season, I  was immediately curious and asked him to send me any information he could on Homeopathy. I then sought any information I could find myself about Homeopathy. After six months of intense personal study, at the end of which I was able to clear a stubborn foot problem that had lasted for well over a year that doctors could not help. And it only took two weeks! Soon after that, I enrolled in George Vithoulkas’ International Academy of Classical Homeopathy

(IACH) where I studied classical homeopathy. Since graduating from IACH and receiving my CHC certification, I have become fascinated with all aspects of Homeopathy – its medicines, theology, science, and history. I am convinced that if people were to know the truth about homeopathy and experience its healing powers, then homeopathy would finally become mainstream medicine. I hope that we are at a point in history where that is happening, and I am excited to have the chance to be a part of it.
