Doug Brown, NP, CCH worked as a sociologist with Cornell University’s American Indian Studies Program before resolving to gain more practical skills as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Yale University. After more than a decade providing primary care, mostly to underserved populations, he became dissatisfied with the medical model and searched for a healing modality that recognized the intrinsic connectedness of mind and body. When he witnessed a miracle of healing by homeopathy, he was led to the Hahnemann College, and later to studies with Sankaran, Chaabra, Scholten, and other masters. He has taught extensively for the American College of Homeopathic Medicine in Phoenix, AZ, and the Seattle School of Homeopathy. He currently teaches advanced clinical courses in Portland, serves on the Board of Directors for A Promise of Health, and contributes occasional articles to Interhomeopathy, Hpathy, Homeopathic Links, and the Journal of the American Society of Homeopaths. He has contributed trituration provings of the Andean Condor and Tuna. His website is homeopathichealing.org.
