Starstruck - The Homeopathic & Naturopathic Medical Treatment of Celebrities

Although not by any means exclusively a “doctor to the stars”, I have certainly treated more than my fair share of celebrity patients over the years.

These celebrity patients have experienced significant success under my treatment, which incorporates:

​Treating such celebrity patients, however, carries additional risks for the health care practitioner.

Celebrities can leave a doctor starstruck.

Vulnerable.

In our paternalistic health care system, doctors are not allowed to be vulnerable.

Particularly not to our patients.

Or it's on us.

Of course, we are not just doctors.

We are people.

I am most certainly a person.

A flawed person.

A person who has made mistakes in my personal life in the past.

And who will undoubtedly make additional such mistakes in the future.

When I accept you as a patient, however, none of those personal vulnerabilities matter.

You must be assumed to be completely vulnerable.

You are protected.

Safe.

I, as your doctor, am assumed to be in a position of power.

I ensure that this paternalisic power hierarchy remains intact.

No matter what.

Your maturity, age, achievement, wealth, and even fame - none of that matters.

If you are an acquaintance, I cannot allow our personal history to affect our treatment.

If you are a celebrity, I cannot allow myself to be starstruck by your fame.

If you attempt to provide me with even seemingly-innocuous gifts or affection, I cannot accept.

Or it's all entirely on me.

Of course, doctors have vulnerabilities.

But, doctors and patients alike, we must recognize our vulnerabilities.

And ensure those vulnerabilities are addressed, treated, and ultimately healed.

"Doctor, heal thyself".

Or, as we are each blind to our own blind spots ...

... ummm ...

(clears throat)

"Doctor, get thee to a trusted and respected fellow physician to heal thyself!"

(sigh)

It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, does it? 

But real truth isn't soundbiteable.

(soundbiteible? ... speaking of not rolling off the tongue :) ... )

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

My meniere’s disease, including the vertigo and nausea, went away after I was treated by Dr. Andy’s remedy, and the recurrences have become increasingly less frequent and intense. I've been doing so well that I haven't needed treatment for months!

F.L., Richmond, BC

I've always had an addictive personality, which can be great when I put it towards something productive, like work.

Last year, before your homeopathic prescription and the neuro-emotional treatment, I was a full-blown alcoholic, and smoked four packs a day.

I'd lose myself in destructive things like gambling and food.

Now I only drink or smoke socially and irregularly ... once or twice a month maximum.

And I'm in control the whole time.

The doctor tells me my liver is doing much better too.

I'm also not coughing or hacking up stuff like I had.

C.P., Parksville, BC

My fingers and toes were always cold and white from the Raynaud's disease, and I would even faint sometimes from low blood pressure.

I additionally had spasms in my muscles and in my arteries and veins also that seemed to make it hard to take a breathe and made me feel like I had a heavy weight on my chest.

Andy's Bowen therapy helped lift this weight.

And the homeopathy and neuroemotional treatment made my spasms decrease over a matter of weeks.

My blood pressure seems more normal too - well, at least I don't get the fainting spells or dizziness like I used to.

My circulation has definitely improved - my hands and feet are pink and feel warm even when I'm not exercising. 

Marie B, Montreal, Quebec

My daughter had about 6 ear infections in under a year, and was constantly uncomfortable and crying.

Your homeopathic remedy flipped some kind of switch inside her - she was happier almost instantly!

She only had one more infection over the next six months, and hasn't had another in the past year.

Your treatment also really gentle - we'll definitely be coming back to you for our youngest soon!

Brooke T, Delta (Tsawwassen), BC

The frozen shoulder is completely cured, and I don't have any more pain in my shoulder, hip, leg or other joints.
I no longer have a cough, and my anxiety is much better, thanks to Andy's naturopathic and homeopathic treatments

Judy R., North Vancouver (Braemar), B.C.

My only reason for trying Dr. Andy's treatment was to help me quit smoking.

If that had been all that he did, I would have already been satisfied.

Needless to say, I was pretty blown away when the homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional releases not only helped me quit smoking (going on 1 year now) but also made my stools better (less painful, blood and frequent).

The Bowen therapy also seemed to make made me less depressed in winter, and helped straighten the curvature in my spine.

I also get hardly any pain during my flow now, and the flow isn't as crazy heavy as it was.

A.P., Victoria (Saanich), BC

I found that the remedies prescribed by Dr. Somody had a huge impact on previous debilitating female health problems that I had struggled with for years.

I feel that I can live my life the way I want to without having to worry about menstrual pain or bladder issues.

Dr. Somody has a caring and sensitive nature when he deals with his patients.

He makes a patient feel empowered by validating her own insights with regards to health matters.

When Dr. Somody uses emotional healing methods, a patient feels as if a weight has been lifted almost instantly.

I recommend him to my friends and family very often.

J. Sall, Port Coquitlam, BC

I had such angry red inflammed acne on my face and neck, it didn't matter how much foundation I put on, it would never look normal.

I also had low blood pressure and blood sugar problems that would make me weak, shaky, and nervous.

I had tried the normal drug route but that just made me feel worse and made my periods even more painful.

Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional therapy made me less anxious, jealous and irritable, almost overnight.

The Bowen technique also seemed to make things flow better, and my periods better.

The acne started to lessen after a couple of days and the flare-ups became less and less until they were not even noticeable.

The healing has been so gradual and complete that before Dr. Andy reminded me I forgot I used to have restless legs, anemia, or vomiting problems.

J.B., Sunshine Coast (Gibsons), BC

My 100 year old aunt suffered a bout of shingles after which she had severe neuralgic pain in her left arm and around her torso. The pain was so bad that even her clothing couldn't be tolerated.

Dr. Andy conducted a thorough interview and prescribed a wonderful remedy especially for her.

Within days the pain was forgotten by her body and mind and has never returned. 

Margaret Ball, Vancouver (Kitsilano), BC

The pain in my abdomen, hips, pelvis, back and intestines were there before pregnancy, but they all became 100 times worse during.

The pain was with me constantly, and just got worse as the pregnancy wore on.

Your bowen therapy was a lifesaver.

The pain was at a 9 or 10 out of 10 before the first session, but went down to a 5 or less afterwards.

With every bowen treatment, and your homeopathic remedies and emotional technique as well, the pain decreased more.

I can't say that the birth was completely pain-free, but it was way better than my first, and I'm certain I would've needed heavy-duty drugs if not for the bowen therapy.

C.P., Vancouver (Marpole), BC & Little Rock, Arkansas
