What Other Students Are Saying

“It has been an honor and a pleasure to work with Dr. Anaheed Jackson.  She was my instructor for the “Homeopathy 101: Building the Foundation” class taught through NaturopathicCE.com an on-line continuing education platform.

I had absolutely no previous knowledge of homeopathic medicine.  Dr. Jackson took me from the very beginning through being comfortable with the idea of making and using homeopathic remedies. She provided an outline of the proposed class which included a series of 2 hour sessions.  Under her guidance, I went from a complete beginner to being able to listen and note symptoms.  We explored special reference books for use in homeopathic medicine. We dug into on-line sources to find and read possible homeopathic remedies for selected case studies.

Ana is a kind, patient instructor. My questions were answered pleasantly and in as much detail as I wanted.  We worked on class activities including researching specific methods of treating certain conditions and what the best outcome might be from various remedies.

With the assurance of Ana, I researched and purchased my own remedy for an existing condition.  I did not get arthritis in my hands over night; it took 30 plus years on a typing keyboard.  Imagine my wonder and surprise when my hands felt better within hours.  After overnight, my fingers were able to make a good fist. It is not totally cleared, but my goodness, I did not think my hands could feel good again.

As a result of her professional, caring instruction, I will be taking more classes in homeopathic studies.

Anaheed Jackson ND is a naturopathic physician who specializes in homeopathic medicine. She grew up in Colorado and graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) in Portland, OR.

In her first year of medical school, she was introduced to the subject of homeopathy and instantly knew her calling was to be a homeopath and a life-long student of this modality. She has studied extensively with Anne Vervarcke, Matt Zorn, and Angelica Lemke and regularly attends lectures and classes to expand her knowledge.

Dr. Ana works with patients of all ages but has a particular interest in working with children with complex mental and behavioral disabilities such as autism, ADD/ADHD, PANS/PANDAS, tic disorders, epilepsy, etc. She loves learning therapies that focus on treating the root cause of illness and that work in harmony with the body’s natural ability to heal.

Beyond her love of homeopathy, Dr. Ana spends a lot of time with her husband and family. She is a classical pianist and finds great joy in both playing and creating music.

Dr. Ana has a deep passion to teach and connect with her students in a meaningful way. She hopes her students feel empowered to apply the knowledge they have gained to take control of their own health and the health of their families.
