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 voice was always raspy, and it would hurt to talk too much.

And I'd be coughing up phlegm and mucus even when I was healthy, especially after getting up in the morning.

Then when it'd get damp, I wouldn't be able to even breathe very well.

Andy's homeopathy remedy and bowen therapy made a huge difference overnight., and things have just kept improving every time I've seen him.

Alex, West Vancouver (Bowen Island), BC

Dr. Andy's homeopathic remedy really helped to eliminate the lichen planus I had been dealing with. My sex drive and ability to have sex without pain have also gotten much better with the homeopathy and naturopathic counselling.

T.L., Langley, BC

I feel like my old self again! My energy is better that it's been in years, and I haven't got sick once since I started seeing you.

Charlotte R., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), 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

I started working with Andy to get some help with my son, who has had issues with anger, attention, aggressiveness for some time.

With Andy's help, my son has made a huge turn around in all areas of his life.

Seeing the success my son had, my wife and myself started seeing Andy with great success for the both of us.

Andy is very passionate about what he does, along with his compassion and kindness.

I would recommend Andy to anyone.

My daughter was going through a horrible period of battling with anorexia, bulimia, and cycles of binging, starvation, and over-exercise.

Her electrolytes were so messed up that, even though she would try to hide it, she was having major problems with coordination and concentration.

She hadn't had periods for at least two years, her hair, teeth and nails were weak and brittle, and the doctors said that she was heading towards osteoporosis.

Dr. Andy was so compassionate and helpful, and his homeopathic remedy and mental-emotional releases seemed to make a difference almost immediately.

Even though my daughter didn't start to gain weight for a couple of weeks, I could see her brighten, relax, and open to the possibility of change.

Little by little, she started eating a little more and relaxing her rigid ideas about food.

It also helped that Dr. Andy was able to tell her what foods were good for her body.

Today, my daughter is happy, healthy, and has no more concerns about weight or body image.

Her periods are normal again too, and she doesn't even have anymore bad dreams or disturbed sleep either.

J.D., West Vancouver (British Properties), BC

Penetrative sex had always been painful and almost impossible for me, and I had started to think I just wasn't meant to have a pleasurable sex life! The homeopathic remedy and naturopathic recommendations have allowed me to enjoy sex with my current partner for the first time ever, and we are both very happy!

Stephanie, Richmond, BC

After Dr. Andy 's treatment, my  skin stopped itching almost immediately, and the dry, inflammed irritated areas were cured very quickly!

I'm no longer bothered at all by dry, itchy, inflammed eczema or psoriasis!

My anxiety, fever, sinusitis, and sleep all got and stayed healed since Andy's remedy.

Erika A., Richmond, BC

I thought I was completely healthy for over 30 years, never got a cold even.

Then I started getting stomach pains.

Next thing I know, the doctors' were telling me I have stage 4 lung cancer.

I felt so exhausted all the time, started losing weight, and could never get a good breath, it was painful.

With Andy's homeopathic and naturopathic therapies and the Bowen technique and neuro-emotional releases, I slowly began feeling stronger.

I honestly didn't notice the difference too much myself at first, but my coworkers did - they'd come up to me and ask me what was different, I looked that much healthier.

My breathing, cough and weight are better now, and the cancer has stopped spreading.

The doctors even think it might be shrinking!

Either way, Andy's natural treatments have made my quality of life very much greater, and I'm grateful for him.

Adrian Wang, Hong Kong, China

I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate your excellent work in improving my health.

There was something unsettled in my gastrointestinal system that my family doctor wasn't able to fix and I was suffering daily.

In less then 6 months of being in your care I was feeling better than ever.

Not only were my specific problems taken care of but I've also noticed that my overall physical and mental health are greatly improved.

I recommend your services to any of my friends, family or co-workers who have health complaints.

Colin Aspinall, Port Coquitlam, BC
