about

Julia Young (DCHM) is a qualified health practitioner offering doula and homeopathic services for women and families. She uses homeopathy to support the body's natural healing processes in both acute and chronic health issues; and in birth, to promote ease in labour. Julia has worked in the field of natural medicine and health for over 15 years. She earned her BA in Cultural Anthropology and Environmental Studies in 1996 with a strong focus on Ethnobotany at the University of Victoria, and completed her homeopathic training at the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine and her DONA International Doula training in 2012. She is also a member of the BC Society of Homeopaths and an associate member of the Canadian Society of Homepaths. Julia has always had an interest in family health and pregnancy, particularly after the birth and continued care of her two children.

homeopathy

Homeopathy was founded in 1796 by a German physician named Samuel Hahnemann. It is based on stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself, and promotes emotional and physical balance. It is based on the "law of similars", which takes each individual as unique, and finds the remedy that best fits their overall symptoms. Homeopathy uses a holistic approach, meaning it treats the whole body - mental, emotional and physical, and can be combined with other forms of medicine. It is gentle, safe and effective, using highly refined medicine in minimal doses, which eliminates any possible side effects. It is used in many places in the world, primarily in Europe and India and continues to grow in popularity worldwide.

Homeopathic care is focused on finding what is unique about each individual, and tailoring their remedy to best promote health. This process often takes a few visits, with the first visit requiring a more thorough discussion. Many patients feel the benefits of homeopathic treatments last for extended periods, but continued check-ins are recommended for long-term maintenance of health.

labour support

Homeopathy is an excellent tool to address any mental, emotional or physical concerns during the birth experience, and truly supports the transition into motherhood. It is used during pregnancy to help the body and mind to prepare for birth, by addressing both mental issues such as fear and anxiety as well as physical complaints such as nausea, varicose veins and malposition. During labour homeopathy is used to help support the natural process of birth and avoid the unnecessary use of interventions. It can be used for pain management, stimulating slow labour, relaxation and emotional support. In the postpartum period, homeopathy is used for both the mental adjustment to life with a new baby, as well as issues such as breastfeeding, thrush and general healing. Julia Young also offers labour support that does not include homeopathy if clients prefer this option.
