Imagine being treated for anything from attention deficit disorder to Lyme disease from the comfort of your home. No busy parking lots, no waiting rooms and no one rushing you through a five-minute appointment.

Imagine being treated for anything from attention deficit disorder to Lyme disease from the comfort of your home. No busy parking lots, no waiting rooms and no one rushing you through a five-minute appointment.

Invermere has gained the services of such a practitioner. Lauri Germain, DHHP, DMH, has relocated her homeopathic practice from Edmonton, Alberta, to the East Kootenay. Patients contact Germain via Skype or telephone for consultations and followups. Germain’s patients range from infants to the elderly, and live all over North America.

Her health and wellness background started in the optical field, then moved to nutrition. Finally, Germain attended Hahnemann Center for Heilkunst and Homeopathy in Ottawa for five years before starting her own career as a homeopathic doctor. She relocated from Edmonton to Invermere to be closer to her aging father, and is quickly settling in.

Germain spoke fervently about her work, likening it to a detective searching for hidden clues to solve the mystery that, in this case, is presented as physical symptoms.

“I look at what’s happening behind the scenes that is driving these symptoms, peeling away the layers of all the trauma (a patient’s) been through. I look at the state of mind and see how it’s affecting the physical body, then give remedies both to support the life force and to relieve symptoms,” Germain said. She described how people can still, years later, suffer the effects of a traumatic experience.

“I treat both sides of disease: the deeper reason, and the pathology,” said Germain. This can include dietary suggestions, homeopathic drops and some herbal remedies. “Everyone is so individual and that’s the beauty of this method,” she added.

To contact Germain, call 250-317-8162 or email [email protected]
