Starstruck - The Homeopathic & Naturopathic Medical Treatment of Celebrities

Although not by any means exclusively a “doctor to the stars”, I have certainly treated more than my fair share of celebrity patients over the years.

These celebrity patients have experienced significant success under my treatment, which incorporates:

​Treating such celebrity patients, however, carries additional risks for the health care practitioner.

Celebrities can leave a doctor starstruck.

Vulnerable.

In our paternalistic health care system, doctors are not allowed to be vulnerable.

Particularly not to our patients.

Or it's on us.

Of course, we are not just doctors.

We are people.

I am most certainly a person.

A flawed person.

A person who has made mistakes in my personal life in the past.

And who will undoubtedly make additional such mistakes in the future.

When I accept you as a patient, however, none of those personal vulnerabilities matter.

You must be assumed to be completely vulnerable.

You are protected.

Safe.

I, as your doctor, am assumed to be in a position of power.

I ensure that this paternalisic power hierarchy remains intact.

No matter what.

Your maturity, age, achievement, wealth, and even fame - none of that matters.

If you are an acquaintance, I cannot allow our personal history to affect our treatment.

If you are a celebrity, I cannot allow myself to be starstruck by your fame.

If you attempt to provide me with even seemingly-innocuous gifts or affection, I cannot accept.

Or it's all entirely on me.

Of course, doctors have vulnerabilities.

But, doctors and patients alike, we must recognize our vulnerabilities.

And ensure those vulnerabilities are addressed, treated, and ultimately healed.

"Doctor, heal thyself".

Or, as we are each blind to our own blind spots ...

... ummm ...

(clears throat)

"Doctor, get thee to a trusted and respected fellow physician to heal thyself!"

(sigh)

It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, does it? 

But real truth isn't soundbiteable.

(soundbiteible? ... speaking of not rolling off the tongue :) ... )

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

For most of my life, I felt as though I couldn't breathe - there was so much mucus and congestion in my lungs and nose.

I was sick a lot too, in my lungs and nose, plus infections in my bladder. 

But I would also get this same congested feeling when I would get panic attacks.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, bowen treatment, and neuroemotional exercises let me get to the source of my sickness and cure it.

Now I only rarely get sick or panicky.

And I always seem to get over it pretty quickly when it does come.

The change in my mood is like night and day too.

Carol K., Burnaby, BC

The candida didn't go away right away after your homeopathic drops - but, by the next day, it seemed like it wasn't bothering me so much.

The emotional releases seemed to help me not have such smelly, gross armpit sweat, especially during or after sleep.

The perpetual weakness I'd had since mono now only affects me rarely, and isn't as debilitating as before.

And I've lost 31 lbs since the treatment began about 6 months ago.

I guess I've changed my diet, but it happened so gradually and naturally since your treatment that I didn't even realize anything had changed until my friends told me I was eating differently.

Deb L., Los Angeles (Huntington Beach), California

Her spasms, aggression, and itching rash have gotten much lesser since the homeopathic treatment.

S.T. (dog owner), West Vancouver (Dundarave), BC

My tongue doesn't have that white, fuzzy coating anymore since your homeopathic treatment.

And it doesn't look so swollen, feel so sore, or seem to bleed as much.

Also, I'm not sure if it's the bowen technique or that neuroemotional work, but something you've done has made me feel so normal, that I almost forget I used to have such terrible burping, nausea, and heartburn.

When I was first introduced to homeopathy by Dr Andy Somody, I was skeptical about treatment, thinking it may be something superstitious or spiritual. Nonetheless my curiosity prompted me to give it a try.

I was impressed when Dr. Andy was able to first improve and then cure my spitting of blood and aches in my neck and arms areas. These issues had been bothering me for several months (or even years) and had not responded to Western medicine, but were cured under Dr. Andy's treatment.

I've since realized homeopathy involves not just physical healing, but mental and emotional forms of healing as well. Unlike the regular doctor who usually sees one only through a physical model, visits to Dr Andy also helped me be in touch with my inner self, a part which I've left behind for years in this high-paced society. 

I've become more at peace with myself, more calm, more patient and understanding as a human being.

I believe some sicknesses and diseases are emotional and not purely organic in nature. Homeopathy seems to address conditions where regular Western medicine cannot. It is drug-free and it treats the person as a whole being and not just a body part.

This is for those who are looking for a trust-worthy and responsible healthcare provider who sees people as individuals and not one of the masses, who gives customized good service irregardless of one’s financial status, beliefs or creed, a doctor who dedicates his life and stays committed to his calling even at the expense of his time and energy.

I do not give testimonies freely but I give credit when credit is due.

I was glad I took my first step towards homeopathy with Dr Andy Somody. Not only have I benefitted from it, on the lighter side, I’ve also found a new friend here in Vancouver.

Dr. Edison Teo, Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

I had such angry red inflammed acne on my face and neck, it didn't matter how much foundation I put on, it would never look normal.

I also had low blood pressure and blood sugar problems that would make me weak, shaky, and nervous.

I had tried the normal drug route but that just made me feel worse and made my periods even more painful.

Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional therapy made me less anxious, jealous and irritable, almost overnight.

The Bowen technique also seemed to make things flow better, and my periods better.

The acne started to lessen after a couple of days and the flare-ups became less and less until they were not even noticeable.

The healing has been so gradual and complete that before Dr. Andy reminded me I forgot I used to have restless legs, anemia, or vomiting problems.

Dr. Andy's homeopathic remedy really helped to eliminate the lichen planus I had been dealing with. My sex drive and ability to have sex without pain have also gotten much better with the homeopathy and naturopathic counselling.

T.L., Langley, BC

Hannah is doing REALLY well - straighter then I have seen her in a while - NO spasms - and even her arm is better!!

She has been using ONLY homeopathy and Bowen to battle a crippling disease, Torsion Dystonia.

Her response has been baffling to neurologists and traditional doctors who are amazed and astounded at her ability to walk, run and carry on normally in life.

Andy's assessment and ability to relate to my teenage daughter were wonderful and her reaction to the remedies and treatment has been so positive.

Hannah Schell, Ottawa, Ontario

Before your homeopathic remedy, neuroemotional releases, and Bowen technique, my heart, eyes, legs and emotions were all twitchy and anxious.

Now I'm calmer and healthier physically and emotionally.

Not to mention that I understand the real reason that I was getting all of these twitchy nervous symptoms in the first place.

Some things that I barely even mentioned in our first session, like the pain in my big toe and the numbness and pain on the bottom of my foot, have improved since your naturopathic treatment.

Adam S., Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

I'm the master of order, and I'm generally happy about this.

But when it got to the point of literally pulling out my hair ... well, I knew I needed help.

Andy's homeopathic treatment and mental-emotional exercises helped me change somehow.

I still have urges once in a while, but they're much weaker and more fleeting than they had been before.

The Bowen therapy sessions also helped my ankles and wrists.

This may even be the reason I have more energy and drive.

B.I., Victoria (Saanich), BC
