How I became a Homeopath
Hi, my name is Christian Koehlert and I am a Homeopath living close to Todos Santos in Baja California Sur. Homeopathy was not my first career choice. First, I studied design, which led to filmmaking. Over many years I produced documentary films in Germany. My favorite subject in my movies always has been the mystery of life and all its manifestations.
I was always looking for a holistic understanding of human existence and creative solutions to cope with the challenges we encounter in the 21st century. Therefore I produced a hand full of documentaries that dealt with alternative approaches in medicine. In this process, I tested out various techniques and methods, which finally brought me to Homeopathy. Because of my passion for traveling and surfing, I spend the colder months in Baja California. Here I finally started to offer holistic consulting and homeopathic treatments.
The Basics Of Homeopathy
Homeopathy, also known as homeopathic medicine, is a medical system developed by Samuel Hahnemann in Germany more than 200 years ago. It’s based on two unconventional theories. First, “Like cures like”—the notion that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people. Secondly, “Law of minimum dose”—the idea that the lower the medication dose, the greater its effectiveness. Many homeopathic products are so diluted that no molecules of the original substance remain.
