121 Elizabeth Adalian – is an internationally recognized homeopathic practitioner from the UK with a particular interest in using specific homeopathic remedies to free the mind and work through certain kinds of past and present trauma. Working as a homeopath after the war in former Yugoslavia, she determined that it is not so much what happens in life – however drastic that may be – but what pre-exists within that experience from the tender years of childhood when so much damage occurs. She explains how one’s past informs our reactions to ongoing challenges in life and dictates the continuing status of our health. Her interesting perspectives bring a fresh, additional dimension to reports from neurodiversity experts here at CBJ. Noteworthy: she sounds almost psychoanalytic in orientation, yet on the other hand uses treatment options beyond psychiatric medications with considerable success.
