Welcome to the West Coast Homeopathic Society


1995 - 2015


This is a special year for West Coast Homeopathic Society as we celebrate 20 years of achievements and service to the homeopathic community.  Celebrations will take place throughout the year with various events, especially informal gatherings to bring together the community and to broaden awareness of the homeopathic base in each locality.  Events so far have included:


April 25 – 27 in Vancouver:
The Dynamic Duo, Drs Shachindra and Bhawisha Joshi helped us celebrate our 20th anniversary at this year’s annual conference with a special 3-day seminar.  The result was an energized, entertaining, and educational weekend for all!  Read more.


June 7 in Victoria:
In celebration of our 20th anniversary, Roland Guenther lead a nature walk past many hidden treasures in the midst of the City, crossing the Gorge, along Admirals Road, and through Portage Park.  We talked about many "remedies" crossing our path, like the oyster shell, butterflies, Conium (Socrates' death, etc.), the Turkey vulture (a reason to talk about bird remedies), Sabina (inspired by a Sabine's Juniper in a garden we passed).  Symphoricarpus, the snow berry bush, illustrated the principle of the similars, as it is used in the Native tradition to vomit as a cleanse before a ceremony, and in homeopathy we use it for the nausea of pregnant women.  Finally, at an old First Nation grave site, we paused to think of ancestors, of the 200 years of homeopathy, and how we build on the experiences of the ones before us.  All in all, a very good celebration of the 20th anniversary of WCHS!


June 9 across BC:
Today we look back 20 years to the date of our incorporation, June 9, 1995.  It marks the official beginnings of our Society and the amazing advancements we have participated in, especially with public awareness and professional development!
Special thanks to the founding Board members who got it all started:
  President: Susan Broznitsky
  Vice President and Professional Representative: Bev Sharwood
  Secretary: Rachel Fox
  Treasurer: Monique Marcq
  Public Relations Representative: Christian Blatt
  Student Representative: Lucie Marcq
  Newsletter Editor: James Hillen


June 21 in Langley:
Marilyn Hirsekorn lead an enthusiastic group through a section of woods, grasslands, and marsh in Cambell River Park today.  A trained botanist, Marilyn showed us how to identify dozens of trees, shrubs, wildflowers, and other plants along the trail, and explained how growth patterns were affected by changes in natural habitat, such as sun/shade, wet/dry soil, etc.  She also included bush-craft and/or homeopathic information with almost every plant, fungi, and animal discussed.  All agreed that it was a highly enjoyable and informative opportunity to reconnect with Nature and celebrate WCHS’s 20th anniversary!



You’re Invited!

November 7 - 8 in Vancouver:
Look for the West Coast Homeopathic Society's information booth at this year's Vancouver Health Show, where you can talk with our members and pick up free information on homeopathy and WCHS!


More events are being planned for later in the year and, once confirmed, they will be posted here.  If you have an interest in homeopathy – as a homeopath, student, patient, home-user, etc. – you are most welcome to join us in these 20th anniversary celebrations!



Serving Homeopathy in BC since 1995


The West Coast Homeopathic Society of BC (WCHS) was founded to serve the homeopathic community in British Columbia, representing the professional and political interests of qualified homeopaths and promoting homeopathic awareness and education.  The Society was founded on the basic principles and practices described by Samuel Hahnemann in his book, The Organon of Medicine
