About Joseph Kellerstein
I graduated Chiropractic in 1980 with an overpowering curiosity about natural healing and an instinct that there must be much more out there. It was at that time that the Holistic medical movement was gaining momentum. Here in Ontario the Naturopathic profession was at the forefront. I graduated in the third class of Naturopathic medicine in 1984. It was truly a turbulent and pioneering time. Both the press and the medical profession were, to say the least, less than friendly. There was even a political move to disenfranchise the profession. Initially our small school was located in an old art gallery in Kitchener, Ontario kind of fitting for a group of medical rebels.
Having studied Homeopathy as part of the Naturopathic curriculum, it was love at first sight. Here was a truly holistic, gentle system of medicine with a very long (1800) track record and huge medical literature. Its recorded cures were and still are unparalleled.
The study of Homeopathic medicine and the legacy of its thousands of pages of journals absorbed me completely. Once a popular form of medicine with many medical schools and hospitals, it was all but gone by the early 1900s a medical Atlantis with only the journals and books as artifacts. By 1989 I had finished my specialty program in Homeopathic medicine and was still no less in love.
This same passion still drives me. I will never stop studying this great system of medicine. I contribute articles to several Homeopathic and Naturopathic journals . I have the privilege of a lecture schedule that takes me world wide. I am honored to be on faculty at both the finest homeopathic college in Ontario, The Toronto School of Homeopathic Medicine, as well as The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. I enjoy my own post graduate program which I offer to other doctors sharing my addiction to homeopathy. Most important of all are my full time practice and my patients who allow me to share their journey to health.
