How can Homeopathy help your family?

7:00 - 8:30 PM
The Center for Disease Prevention & Reversal
Evanston, IL

Speaker: Dr. Toni Bark
Homeopathy is a safe and natural healing system that works with your body to improve your overall health. Homeopathic medicines, known as remedies, are derived from natural sources that are given in minimal doses to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities while not producing the devastating side effects conventional medicines are known for.
Join us to learn how it works and if it could help your child. This is your chance to learn about classical homeopathy for anything from acute illness to more chronic concerns like autism, allergies, asthma, PANS and more. Dr. Bark will spend time discussing this natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms and restore itself.
 
Toni Bark, M.D. (LEED AP) graduated from Rush Medical College in Chicago, Illinois in 1986. She then went on to New York University and the University of Illinois for residency programs in pediatric and rehabilitative medicine. Dr. Bark has been the medical director for various departments and hospitals and has extensive post-residency training in nutritional medicine, classical homeopathy, autonomic biofeedback and ketogenic nutrition. She has studied with the top trainers in various fields.
