Homeopathy - What is it and how can it help?
Homeopathy is a clinical science discovered by Christian Frederick Samuel Hahnemann, a German Physician, in the late 1790's and 1800. Homeopathy today is a rapidly growing system and is practiced almost all over the world.
Homeopathy is a natural system of medicine that utilizes minute doses of carefully selected ingredients made from plants, mineral sources, and many other natural substances, to enhance the body's natural healing processes. Its strength lies in its marked effectiveness as it takes a holistic approach towards the sick individual through the promotion of inner balance at mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical levels. Most of all, the right homeopathic remedy stimulates self-healing. Horses are very evolved beings and they respond quickly to Homeopathy. They seem to understand it and go with it. Animals, in general, do not attach themselves to a diagnosis and humans do, mentally and emotionally. Homeopathy is very effective in the treatment of horses/animals.
Why choose Homeopathy?
Homeopathy recognizes the inseparability of body and mind. Homeopathy treats the patient as a whole and not just the disease. Homeopathy believes in a Holistic, Totalistic, and Individualistic approach. This makes Homeopathy the true and rational art of healing. Also, Homeopathy is safe to use when many other types of treatments may not be recommended, such as in case of newborns and during pregnancy.
How does Homeopathy Work?
Homeopathy works on the principle of "Similia Similibus Curenter" which means, "Let Like be cured by Likes", (AcA) derived from the Natural Law of Nature. In this, the medicine administered to the diseased individual is such that if given to a healthy person it produces a similar disease as found in the diseased individual. Thus when the pathogenesis of the medicine matches with the symptoms of the diseased person, this medicine is called the "Similimum" which certainly leads to cure. Unlike any other system of medicine, the remedies used in Homeopathy have been previously proven on healthy human beings, therefore, their actions and reactions are fully known to the Homeopaths. This makes Homeopathy the true and rational art of healing.
Homeopathic medicines are easy to administer.Homeopathy can treat various illnesses. Both Acute and Chronic.
The Homeopathic Consultation
The Homeopathic interview is very in-depth and may take a considerable amount of time (many hours and spans over 3-4 weeks). This will involve a detailed case taking where you will need to provide detailed medical/veterinary and other symptom details of your animal. Present symptoms, thoughts and feelings, and the past history that has led you to this present health condition. After recording your case, the whole picture will be analyzed and a single remedy will be advised to you which best covers your expressed symptoms: mental, emotional and physical. This remedy will be given to you in an appropriate potency and frequency of repetition according to the assessment of your need. After a suitable interval you will be called for a follow-up to assess the effect of the treatment given and receive more treatment as and when appropriate. The number of appointments, number of remedies, and amount of treatment will vary for each patient according to their condition and severity. A Homeopathic consultation can be the turning point that will lead to a restoration of Health and Vitality.
I have been in the Homeopathic practice for over 30 years. My training and experience have spanned many years and different parts of the world - human, animal and agricultural treatments.
I do specialize in Equine / Animal Classical Homeopathy.
I treat just as many Humans. Many are the animal owners or referrals from clients worldwide.
Please note: Remedies are flavorless and undetectable to the animals. Easy dosing.

REVIEWS - TESTIMONIALS
Cardio/Hypertension Josephine Gagnon Homeopath, helped me with cardio/hypertension issues. I was on heavy, daily, meds/drugs that were causing dizziness to the point of falling. I am in my 80's with osteoarthritis. I cannot afford a fall. My doctor then put me on more drugs to help the vertigo side effects. These drugs made me sick to the point of vomiting after only the 3rd dose.
After one month of non-toxic homeopathic treatment with Josie, I was able to get off of the drugs that with such horrible side effects.
Additionally, my dr has repeated my lab work and the items that were off on the last ones (esp. kidney) have balanced. My doctor says my blood work is better than hers! "whatever you are doing, keep doing it" was her response.
With thanks from my Heart! :) Melissa M., El Cajon, CA
Arthritis I want the whole world to know that Homeopathy works! That is, if you treat with a practitioner that is dedicated enough to search for the real cause and works so hard to achieve a cure. I had terrible arthritis that was crippling. I suffered massive periods of depression and couldn't even get simple household chores done. Even cooking a meal or washing dishes was out of the question.
I decided to try homeopathy as I have tried all the rest of the healing arts with NO success or cure. My friend recommended Josephine Gagnon. She sent me an Intake Form which took me a few days to complete. Then, we did a FaceTime interview. Very lengthy and detailed. The amount of detail that went into my individual assessment was astounding to me. And that anyone practitioner cared that much!
I've never had a practitioner, doctor, or anyone else spend this amount of time with me and be so interested in finding the CAUSE of why I was so sick! It was truly amazing and eye opening.
Since my treatment, I have had Josie out to treat both of my mares. Both have recovered nicely without toxic vet drugs. I have referred Josie to other horse friends and will continue to do so. People need to know about this medicine and a practitioner that cares, completely and in every way.
Love and Thanks Always, Jen G., Rancho Santa Fe, CA
PROSTATE I had a very swollen prostate gland. The doctors weren't of much help to me. and I kept getting referred to one doctor or the other with no results.
My horse coach recommended I contact Josephine Gagnon. She recommended we treat “Constitutionally” I was a little hesitant and didn't much like filling out the extensive Form. I thought it was a waste of time. I was very wrong about it.
I am so glad I decided to do with it. Within 30 days my prostate was back to normal (to the wonder of my doctor) I’ve never felt better in my general overall health. I am 67 yrs. old. All of my Gratitude. I recommend Josie and her detailed, comprehensive and very scientific care to anyone and everyone. Of all the medical doctors I have seen in my life, including my personal general practitioner which I like very much, not one of them took the time out to explain my lab work/blood work or urinalysis to me. Josie did all of the above and I believe understands the labs far and beyond any medical doctor. Thank you!

LYMPH CONDITIONS I used to go for lymph drainage every 6 months. I hated it. My best friend recommended I get treated with a homeopath, Josephine Gagnon. I had tried a couple of local homeopaths with little to no success in the past.
Well, I was proven very wrong and so was the internet!
My overall health has improved much as well. Particularly my Eyesight!
And I don't worry about lymphatic cancer as I did for so long.
I am so thankful and would recommend Josie to anyone in the world. Currently, I ham having her treat my cat and dog. The vets are of no use with the issues they have.
Additionally, I want to mention that no other homeopath, only Josie ever asked me to send over lab work to review. Not one. All said that it was not important in the treatment. Hmmmm....they should go back to school. From my understanding of what I have read so far it is important and a long time ago all homeopaths were medical doctors.
I can't thank you enough, Josie. Love and Hugs Nancy M., Sedona, AZ
KIDNEY STONES I am writing this review/recommendation for my Mom. She is in her late 80’s and suffered life long kidney stones and other issues. The regular doctors just wanted to operate at the slightest symptom/problem. My Mom has had so many operations and I believe many were unnecessary. But, we had no other choice, until now. Josie Gagnon treated my horse with skin issues (life long) which resulted in a full cure.
So, I decided to have her treat my Mom as I could not imagine another operation at her age. Within 3 months of treatment my Mom has never felt better. She no longer experiences the sharp pain, urinary issues, and other. Improvement continues.
Her cataracts have cleared a bit and we are hopefully this will continue.
We are forever grateful and hope other people will try homeopathic treatment.
All the Best from my entire Family, Josie. Whatever health needs we have we will consult you FIRST.

DIABETES I want all to know that homeopathy works! Don’t believe the lies on the internet. The key is finding a well trained and experienced homeopath.
I had terrible Diabetes that was not being managed or cured with conventional treatment. I consulted (by video) with Josephine Gagnon in California. Within a month of treatment I was no longer requiring insulin. My life had changed - completely - in one month. Physically and mentally. My outlook is positive now for the first time in 20 years.
I am so glad I went through with the detailed process of treatment. A very small price to pay for a CURE. My doctor was very upset and worried when I told her of my treatment. My doctor nearly fell over when we repeated my "perfect" lab work and glucose test.
May God Bless and hold you in his keep forever!

TRAUMA I suffered with nightmares, anxiety, fears of all kinds for nearly 15 years after a brutal attack at my college. I tried counseling (which helped a bit) but I just couldn’t move past the trauma. My aunt recommended homeopathic treatment. I did not know what that was at first. Nor, did I want to go through a distance consulting process with someone I did not know or meet in person.
I am soooooo glad I decided to try it. Josie was so caring and understanding. In my homeopathic interview I cried all the way through. She listened patiently and asked me more details about my nightmares, anxiety, and fears. The questions were ones that I had hoped other medical professional would ask me, but they never did.
For the first time, I felt like someone HEARD me and was working hard to help me instead of just nodding there head and writing something down.
It is about 6 months now from the start of treatment. Every month I continue to improve. My nightmares are almost NONE at this time. I don’t have any anxiety that is obvious as it was. I don’t fear certain places, people, etc. I feel myself getting stronger every day. I don’t know what I would have done without this miraculous medicine and kind and experienced professional. There is no way I can describe how grateful I am !
What took therapist and psychologists 15 years (with little to no results)
EATING DISORDER I had a severe eating disorder which NO one could help me with. I must have tried 10 different psychologists/counselors over the course of about 25 years. Nothing worked.
Until I did a detailed assessment and treatment with Josephine Gagnon.
It took us 2 and a half hours on the phone but in the end every issue was addressed. Many of which the counselors never even touched upon. I was astounded at how much. Josie dug deep into my childhood and other times which was a bit difficult. But, in the end it was well worth a little pain and emotional discomfort to confront the traumas of my youth.
I no longer suffer an eating disorder. Josie also pointed me in the direction of a dietician to help me further in establishing the correct diet/food for myself.
Additionally, all the physical issues I suffered my entire life (mainly severe headaches) has all improved. I’ve had one minor headache in the past few months. They used to be daily and very severe. Causing me to take toxic pain drugs and further damage to myself.
With Love and Gratitude. This country should recognize homeopaths as DOCTORS. True Doctors! Emily G., Utah
VETERINARY - ANIMAL CASES
Samy - Feline Asthma
I just wanted to share our experience...Our cat, Samy, has had asthma since he was 7 months old. He was diagnosed one month after his rabies vaccine. We were told by our conventional vet that there was no cure, and that he would need steroids, anti-inflammatories, inhalers, etc. These all came with undesirable side-effects. I found Josephine through this group on facebook. We worked with her for 5 months, peeling away each layer of damage that was done to him via conventional medicine and vaccines. I am happy to report that Samy has not had ONE cough in 2 months! Josie was amazing...She was so kind and patient with us. She was incredibly generous with her time. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a holistic way to help their pets! She is now helping us with another cat who was recently diagnosed with colon cancer. I can't say enough about her abilities as a true healer. We are so grateful!! Sandy Morrell, CA
My First Introduction to Veterinary Homeopathy
I am an equine large animal veterinarian in clinical practice over 30 years.
I will not post my name here for fear of backlash from the veterinary community/colleagues/veterinary boards, etc.
I want to write this testimonial as I have deep respect for Josie and her work.
I want people to understand that homeopathy, with the right practitioner can be life saving and extremely effective. It was proven to me.
I first met Josie over 2 years ago onsite at a clients barn. I and another vet were there to treat life threatening severe injury from fall. Both the horse and rider suffered fall / injury. Josie was there to treat both!
I have to confess I didn’t quite understand what Josie’s role was there or homeopathic medicine being able to help at all.
Within one hour after the first administration of homeopathic medicine the horse showed significant marked improvement to my amazement. Josie described to me what energetic action had taken place again, to my amazement. After 3 days both the rider and the horse made full recovery under Josie's care.
My treatments did nothing, unfortunately. Nor did the efforts of the other vet. All we could do was monitor vitals.
The other vet was quite hostile to Josie and the medicine. To the point of the owner having to step in and ask the vet to behave or leave. It was truly sad to see a professional acting in this manner. What Josie endured during that appointment is beyond description. It turns my stomach to think about writing it. Absolutely appalling. Josie remained focused on treatment and monitoring and remained kind to the vet. Her only response to the hostility was, I have just as much right to be here as you do. No practitioner should have to endure any such treatment. I am so ashamed of my fellow colleague and her behavior. Since, Josie has described to me other such incidences (with vets and MDs) which again, I am truly ashamed of my colleagues.
If I was a younger man I would return to school and study veterinary homeopathy.
Anyone that decides to treat with Josie, you are in the most capable and kind hands. I know, as she treated my bum knee. Now, after 20 yrs of struggling to bend it in the course of my large animal work - I no longer suffer.

My sweet, 15 year-old American Eskimo has a chronic bleeding nipple issue. It is so strange-
Seeing a conventional veterinarian couldn’t give me answers or solutions without a biopsy, and mostly likely surgery.
That wasn’t something I wanted to put her through, especially after having emergency pyometra surgery the year prior.
Della has other ailments that are being treated, as well. The nipple was my just main concern, as she was leaving blood all over the place.
Something just didn’t seem right.
It’s been four months since Della started her homeopathic remedies.
The bleeding is down about 80% from what it was before. She seems to be more “there” mentally and literally sprints around the neighborhood EVERY, SINGLE DAY. (She didn’t do that before.)
I can hardly keep up with her, she is now 16 years old!!!!
I can’t imagine where she would be if she hadn’t gotten such amazing treatment by the knowledgeable and caring, Josephine.
I didn’t realize she treated humans until reading this page, I’m definitely going to get treatment as well!
Me and Della are SO grateful for all the help and guidance
She is feeling GREAT!!!!
HORSES - HOMEOPATHY
