CHRISTOPHER PHILLIPS, C.C.H., R.S.Hom.(N.A.)
For me, Homeopathy is more than a profession: It is a passion, dedication, art form and endless fascination. It is my way to be of service.
I graduated from Yale University, and did my homeopathic training at the Atlantic Academy of Classical Homeopathy in New York.
As a classical homeopath, I have been treating patients on the Upper East Side since 1993. In June 1998, after seven years of preparation, I took my national board exams to become Certified in Classical Homeopathy (C.C.H.), the highest qualification in the field. I am one of only about 100 homeopaths in the United States to be credentialed by both the Council for Homeopathic Certification and the North American Society of Homeopaths.
Part of my private practice includes the training and mentoring of homeopathic students; other homeopaths also sometimes seek my advice on their especially difficult cases. The Council for Homeopathic Certification has used one of my cured cases for teaching purposes, and in 2000 I was part of a national by-invitation task force that recommended educational standards for Homeopathy in North America. I have also been a supervisor of homeopathic research on new remedies.
Places I have lectured on holistic medicine and Homeopathy include the State University of New York
Graduate Center, Mercy College, and the Makor Center of the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan.
A practitioner’s training is never finished, and I continue to study with some of the world’s greatest homeopaths. In 2003, I went to India to observe at homeopathic hospitals and clinics in Bombay.
I was born and raised in Manhattan, in the same neighborhood where my practice is located today. I have also lived and worked in England, Scotland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Israel. My practice is bilingual in English and French; my other languages include fair Chinese (Mandarin) and some Spanish and Hebrew.
My international background has definitely increased my understanding of different kinds of people in all their diversity — and yes, in their similarity as well!
