Homeopathy Class Offered in Solvang

Class begins in June.

MAY 19, 2014 -- Learn how your body can stimulate self-healing through basic, safe homeopathy in a new Introduction to Homeopathy class offered through Allan Hancock College Community Education.

Homeopathy is a medical philosophy based on the belief that the body has the ability to heal and care for itself.  It has been widely used throughout Europe to maintain health and treat a variety of illnesses such as allergies and rheumatoid arthritis and minor injuries like cuts, scrapes and muscle sprains.

Homeopathic remedies are discussed in this class, which meets Tuesday and Thursday, June 17 and 19, from 9 a.m. to noon, and on Thursday, June 26, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the AHC Solvang Center, Room 1, at the corner of Alisal Road and Elverhoy Way.  The fee is $48.  An additional materials fee of $5 is payable to the instructor in class.

Instructor Helen Talkin, M.A., studied and practiced homeopathy in England, where she taught classes at the Watford Women’s Centre in Watford, prior to moving to Santa Maria area.  She is enrolled in a Ph.D. program at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, where her research includes homeopathy, neuroscience and psychology.

“There is a lot of interest in homeopathy, but not much knowledge or experience of it,” she says.  “Homeopathic remedies are widely available and are inexpensive and safe, with no side effects,” she adds, stressing that she is very careful to emphasize when people need to consult their medical practitioner.
