Dec 27, 2022

There has been a recent threat to homeopathy worrying mothers around the country. Some of us lose sleep at night with the idea that homeopathy may be taken away from us - the idea that we visit our health food store to not see our favorite trusted remedies on the shelves seems unimaginable and quite frankly wrong. We worry for our children, for our grandchildren. Many of us rely on homeopathic remedies to help our children when sick - they are our go-to Doctor Mom tool. How can this be?

Rest assured mama - we are FIGHTING and we are fighting hard. And we have an amazing organization called Americans for Homeopathy Choice who are well prepared, organized, and have already proven to have an effective voice to make CHANGE!

Please welcome to today’s episode Paola Brown, president of Americans for Homeopathy Choice, along with Laura Held, the organization's grassroots leader. We had a great chat with them to learn more about their organization, and to clarify the common misconceptions going around about homeopathy being illegal (which it is not!) or if we are at risk of losing homeopathy overnight (again no we aren't!!) 

This episode will help CALM your anxiety, address concerns and most of all teach you ways how to take action and SAVE homeopathy! 

Whether you are in the season of motherhood where you have extra time to give to advocacy, or if you simply only have a few extra seconds here and there and want to help - we talk about ways for any mom to be involved and truly make a difference!  We encourage you to at the very least to visit their website at homeopathychoice.org and check out their offers.  

For the mother who has little time - at the very least join their email and text alerts so you know when to send a letter or comment when we need to show the government that the masses want homeopathy to stay.  If you have more time and want to learn how to meet with your representatives, join the Homeopathy Action Team! In today’s episode, we discuss what that entails.  If you have the desire to donate to the organization we ask you to consider this too. 

Paola and Laura are busy mothers themselves. The leaders of this strong organization are passion- fueled and more members and donations are what keep organizations like this strong and ready to fight - when we need them the most.

We are so excited to bring you this episode … there is a lot you can do as a Doctor Mom! We got this!

Topics Discussed:

  • How does Americans for Homeopathy Choice advocate for homeopathy
  • Is homeopathy being deemed illegal?
  • Will homeopathy be removed from the marketplace? 
  • How can we save homeopathy? 
  • What does it look like to get involved 

Show Notes:

Paola Brown is president and founder of Americans for Homeopathy Choice, the voice of a growing number of mothers and other homeopathy users who want to protect their right to choose homeopathy. Paola is a wife and mother of three who has previously taught many introductory homeopathy classes. She received a B.A. in English education and an M.A. in curriculum and instruction from Arizona State University graduating summa cum laude both times. She taught college English for 13 years and high school English before that. Fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, Paola was also a health instructor with Care for Life, a nonprofit organization working to develop sustainable communities in Mozambique. 

Laura is a wife, mother, home educator, and student at the Academy of Homeopathy Education. As the Grassroots Director for Americans for Homeopathy Choice, Laura oversees the nationwide volunteer advocacy team advancing the organization's efforts to foster the inclusion of the consumer voice in policy decisions on homeopathic medicine. She previously worked for the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and was integral to the development of the U.S. Currency Education Program and training domestic and global stakeholders for the launch of the new-design $100 note.

Steph interviews Stephanie Kwong, co-founder of the Rapid Rewire Method (RRM). Stephanie has spent over a decade in the personal development industry, having worked as a Subconscious Rewiring coach, Hypnotherapist, Breathwork Facilitator, teacher of Self-Love, and now she’s serving her divine calling as the Co-Founder of the Rapid Rewire Method. 

In this episode, they discuss the process she used to overcome deep grief after a miscarriage. She provides encouragement that shifting from a life of limitation and stress to one of power and freedom is possible and can be fast, painless, and sustainable. She offers guidance for how to avoid becoming stuck in solely a “mom” identity when we also want and need to fulfill the role of “wife” or “daughter” or “businesswoman” and many others, how the stories we have can lead to generational patterns, and so much more!

We are grateful to our podcast partner, Paleovalley, for connecting us with Stephanie. Paleovalley continues to come out with new and innovative products! Not only do they offer our favorite superfood bars and beef sticks, they also just came out with a 100% grass-fed chocolate bone broth protein powder, topical and strawberry lemonade supergreens powder, and maple pork sticks that are phenomenal.
