Instructor: Susanne Saltzman, M.D.
Susanne Saltzman, M.D., graduate of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, is a general practitioner in Hartsdale (Westchester county) specializing in homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy is a system of medicine that uses natural substances to stimulate the body’s immune system to heal disease. It is based on the principle of “like cures like:” the same substance that causes illness can also cure, by varying the dosage of that substance. Homeopathy recognizes that every person is unique in the way he or she expresses illness. Therefore, two people with the same illness may receive two completely different homeopathic remedies. The remedy treats the “whole” person. This means that someone’s mental and emotional characteristics are just as important as his/her physical symptoms in the selection of the correct homeopathic remedy.
Dr. Saltzman has successfully treated thousands of adults and children with a wide range of illnesses for almost 30 years. These include allergies, asthma, anxiety disorders, attention deficit disorder, autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus, ear infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, depression, headaches (including migraines), fibromyalgia, hyperactivity and other behavioral problems in children, inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis, Lyme disease, and women’s health issues such as PMS, menopause, uterine fibroids and ovarian cysts.
There will be 10 classes the first year on Saturdays starting in September 2021. Dates to be determined. A second year is offered and is optional. Students will learn:
- Homeopathic theory and philosophy
- Acute prescribing (first aid, influenza, coughs, ear infections, headaches, etc.)
- Chronic, constitutional prescribing (for those chronic conditions named above.) Learn in-depth analysis of the most common remedies used in practice today. Dr. Saltzman will draw on many cured cases from her own practice to illustrate these remedies.
