Susanne Saltzman, M.D., a general practitioner and
homeopathic medicine specialist in Hartsdale, will teach a 60-hour Zoom course
in homeopathy beginning in October. Comprising 10 Saturday sessions, the course
is intended for lay people as well as health professionals who want to learn
how to treat their family, friends or patients with homeopathic remedies.
“Too many people have become dependent on pharmaceutical
medication with all its attendant side effects,” Saltzman says. “Homeopathy
works with the body to help bring it into balance, not merely suppress symptoms
as most pharmaceuticals do.
Homeopathy harnesses the natural healing abilities of the
human body, which is more powerful than most people realize. Although
homeopathy can treat a variety of serious diseases in the hands of a qualified
practitioner, most people can learn to treat simple illnesses such as the flu,
allergies and upper-respiratory infections, as well as IBS and other common
disorders.”While the course is designed to be both informative and
enjoyable, with an informal atmosphere, students should be prepared to do some
work, including homework assignments, she says.
A graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine,
Saltzman also practices functional medicine, and so her course will include
lessons on the importance of nutrition and the gut microbiome to overall
health, and on strengthening the immune system with supplements.
“Because homeopathy has an excellent record in the
treatment of epidemics, such as the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, students will
also learn what homeopathic medicines to have on hand during the current
crisis,” she says.
