Dr. Lucas began studying homeopathy in 1996. It is a form of medicine which began in Germany over 200 years ago which has, as its premise, that all people have a “vital force” within them that enables them to stand up against life’s struggles – be they bacterial or viral infections, emotional issues, etc. If one’s vital force is weak, then the body cannot take care of itself. The homeopathic practitioner searches for a remedy based on each individual patient's physical, mental and emotional nature. When that remedy is administered, the vital force strengthens; and the person begins to heal. Dr. Lucas has used homeopathy in patients with many different types of health concerns and most recently has begun using it in the treatment of Lyme patients.
