Homeopathy at McDonald Chiropractic Clinic

Get to know Linda McDonald, MA

homeopathy Elkton Linda McDonald Linda received her Master’s degree in Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience from the University of Delaware in 1987, with training in neurophysiology. Linda became interested in homeopathy in the 1980’s when several family members were faced with chronic illness that was resistant to treatment by traditional medical approaches.

Upon starting a family, Linda found homeopathy to be effective and strengthening for all the common childhood complaints. Using homeopathy in the family became the norm, with knowledge gained initially by studying with the Northern Delaware Homeopathy Study Group, from 1992 onward.

Realizing what a powerful tool homeopathy is, Linda began professional study of homeopathy in 1996. Since then, she has completed study with the New England School of Homeopathy, with Ananda Zaren of California, and with the Allen Academy of Homeopathy in Wilmington, DE. Linda furthers her knowledge of homeopathy by regularly participating in advanced seminars.

In 1999, Linda completed training in CranioSacral Therapy with the Upledger Institute. She has found that combining Homeopathy with CranioSacral Therapy® encourages a positive shift towards balance and well-being.

Linda McDonald offers lectures & workshops on the use of homeopathy in first aid, colds & flu, women’s concerns, children’s ailments and pet health.

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is an approach to health in which naturally occurring substances of plant, mineral or animal origin are used in very small doses to stimulate a person’s natural defenses and innate healing ability. Homeopathy is recognized worldwide and has been verified experimentally and clinically for over 200 years.

Can Homeopathy help me?

Homeopathy is effective in treating a variety of conditions in people of all ages including children. In addition to accelerating healing and recovery in self-limiting conditions such as colds and flu, appropriate use of homeopathy can improve chronic physical conditions such as arthritis, asthma, allergies and recurrent ear infections. Homeopathy has also been effective in treating emotional and behavioral imbalances such as depression and ADHD.

How does Homeopathy differ from other approaches to health and healing?

With homeopathy, symptoms of disease are recognized as an expression of imbalance in the body’s response to various stresses, whether physical, emotional or pathogenic (viral or bacterial).

Every individual has a unique profile of reaction or susceptibility to these influences. This profile of symptoms is used by a homeopathic practitioner to identify a remedy that will support the body’s inherent tendency to restore balance and initiate healing.

The remedy selection is individualized and chosen based on the principle of “like cures like.” This means a substance that causes symptoms in large doses will alleviate those same symptoms when given in very small doses. Thus homeopathic remedies work with, rather than against a person’s natural defenses.

Stones stacked on one another.

What happens during a Homeopathic Consultation?

Through private consultations at McDonald Chiropractic Clinic, Linda McDonald helps clients explore their unique profile of reaction to an imbalance, which includes assessing not only the presenting physical symptoms, but viewing the illness in the context of the whole person; how the illness affects you in your life, physically, emotionally and mentally.

The initial consultation requires up to two hours, during which time information is gathered from you that is used to devise a plan for healing in your unique situation, using the homeopathic remedy that most closely matches your condition.

Follow-up appointments are important to monitor your progress while using homeopathic remedies.

What is CranioSacral Therapy®?

The CranioSacral system consists of the membranes and fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Since this system influences the development and performance of the brain and spinal cord, an imbalance or restriction could potentially cause sensory, motor or neurological problems. These may include headaches, chronic pain, muscle spasms, eye difficulties, even learning disabilities.

CranioSacral Therapy® is a gentle form of bodywork in which restrictions in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid are detected and corrected, thus helping to restore optimal function to the body’s innate healing ability. Linda offers this technique to clients wishing to achieve greater balance and freedom from the negative effects of stress. She has found that combining Homeopathy with CranioSacral Therapy® encourages a positive shift towards balance and well-being.
