About Edi Pfeiffer
Homeopathy was a natural choice for me for any number of reasons. First and foremost, I’m curious! I take a very active interest in people around me, and am capable of assimilating the information they give me in totally new ways — often drawing conclusions they’d never considered, but that seem instinctively “right” once they’re articulated. I am also fascinated by biology, botany and chemistry — all of which are integral components of the field.
I started my homeopathic studies while living in Wales in 1979, and continued them in England in the early 1980s. After returning to San Francisco's East Bay Area, I began a long association with the Hahnemann Medical Clinic and Pharmacy.
I am a graduate of the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy in Berkeley, and have been in practice in the East Bay since 1991. I have been designated a Certified Classical Homeopath by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, a nationally recognized peer-review organization. I am also a registered member of the North American Society of Homeopaths. In addition, I have earned the designation Master Clinician on the basis of my postgraduate studies in homeopathy. I am the past interim president of the board of directors of the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy. I have also worked in a Cambodian refugee clinic where I used homeopathy to help people with post-traumatic stress.
I've been associated with homeopathy for the past thirty-two years and continue to attend homeopathic seminars and conferences. I meet regularly with respected homeopathic colleagues to exchange current information, study cases together, and discuss new ideas.
I supervise homeopathic students and certification applicants with their cases. In addition to my private family practice, I teach workshops on homeopathy and traditional food ways as a path to eating more healthfully.
I am currently working on the biography of Dr. Florence Ward, a surgeon and homeopath from the turn of the past century. I am also writing a piece for The American Homeopath about my experience of viewing Dr. Samuel Hahnemann's homeopathic remedy kit and other historical memorabilia stored in the medical history department behind the scenes at the Smithsonian History Museum.

I am committed to raising the level of health of the planet, for the future, by practicing, teaching, and writing about homeopathy.
