Kim Boutilier
RSHom (NA), CCH.

Kim came upon homeopathy 20 years ago during a serious illness. Conventional medicine and naturopathy weren’t working. To her surprise (and that of her doctors) homeopathy did!

She began to explore the topic with a passion. When she read the “Science of Homeopathy”, it stirred her soul so deeply that it changed the course of her life.

In 1994, she helped found the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy, one of North America’s most respected schools of classical homeopathy, where she taught and mentored many of our city’s homeopaths.

As a classical homeopath, she’s helped countless others discover the freedom of total health.

Today she’s on the board of the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy in the U.S. She also sits on the board of Side-by-Side Homeopathy and volunteers for Project Somos Children’s Village in Guatemala.

Laurie Dack
RSHom, (NA), CCH.

One day, while sitting in a waiting room, Laurie picked up a book and fell in love. It was a copy of Kent’s “Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy”. That was over 35 years ago.

Since then, she’s studied, taught and lectured about homeopathy. She’s also dedicated her life to its practice. In her words, “I see remarkable transformations all the time, sometimes several in one day.”

Laurie has been a teacher at the Northwestern Academy of Homeopathy in Minnesota for over 20 years. She also taught at the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy during its reign. In addition, she’s shared successful case stories to audiences the world over – England, Germany, Switzerland and India among the destinations.

That book — “Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy” — changed her life.  Over the years, it also helped her change the lives of others.

Tina Spathis

Tina spent over 20 years as a nurse working in hospitals here and abroad. The frustration of watching patients suffer from chronic illness, and not get better, led her to search for something better. She found it in homeopathy when her daughter took ill with chickenpox. She’s since become an avid student and practitioner.

Tina graduated from the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy in 2009 with a focus on treating families. She then attended post-graduate studies in paediatric homeopathy with Dr. Sunil Anand. She has extensive experience in adolescent care. She also continues to expand on her knowledge by pursuing an interest in orthopaedic, trauma, cardiology and respiratory medicines.

On her free time, Tina volunteers with Side-by-Side Homeopathy, an organization that provides free homeopathic care to women in the Downtown Eastside.

Dr. Lianne South
DC ND DHANP CHC RSHom(NA).

Lianne has always had a calling for alternative medicine. She began her career as a Chiropractor and then a Naturopath. However, once she discovered homeopathy, it was a passion she had to pursue. In fact, she did so — vigorously.

Lianne studied her craft at the Hahnemann Homeopathic College in Berkeley, the Dynamis School for Advanced Homeopathic Studies in Toronto, the Jayesh Shaw School in San Francisco, as well as the Bombay school in India. In addition, she taught homeopathy and clinical pathology at the Vancouver Academy of Homeopathy.

As a chiropractor, naturopathic doctor and a homeopath, she has a unique mix of skills. Still, her first love is homeopathy. She’s been fortunate to spend 25 years of her life enjoying the difference it makes in the lives of others.

Susan Gimbel
DIHom, RSHom (NA), CCH 

Susan discovered homeopathy while living in India where it’s widely practiced. There, she witnessed and experienced its healing first-hand.

Intrigued, she read “Kent’s Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy.” His holistic approach immediately resonated with her and a passion was born. She studied with the British Institute of Homeopathy and with some of our generation’s masters: Jeremy Sherr, Jan Scholten, Rajan Sankaran.

Twenty-five years later, she’s an accomplished and sought-after homeopath herself. She also spent 17 years teaching at the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy.

Today Susan travels frequently – studying, teaching and practicing her craft the world over. On that note, Susan is an accomplished “Skyper” too! When she’s not seeing clients at the Centre, she’s always accessible online.
