I wish to update the information on this site as of January 2022. Since the beginning of April 2020, I have treated over 500 people with this infection and I have a good understanding of the pathophysiology (the natural course) of this infection. I will detail my understanding of how the infection occurs and what happens in the body in various stages of this illness. Natural and alternative treatments will be recommended.
Please understand that, I use all my knowledge as a traditionally trained Physician Assistant as well as my training and experience using herbs, supplements, essential oils, homeopathy, hypnosis, and stress management. This website contains components of information from all areas of my training and experience.Read More
Homeopathy is a complete treatment system that has been around for over 200 years. Perfected over 40 years by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in Germany. He proved 43 remedies which we still use today and since then over 3 thousand remedies have been added to the Materia Medica.
It is based on a concept introduced by the father of medicine, Hippocrates, around 400 AD. That concept is “like cures like”. For example, syrup of Ipecac can cause vomiting and was used in cases of poisoning to make the patient vomit. Homeopathically prepared Ipecac will reduce nauseas and stop vomiting.
The exact mechanism of action is not completely known, but it is thought to work on the subatomic, energy level rather than the cellular, molecular level like prescription, OTC, and herbal medicines. This is why the scientist and pharmaceutical experts typically discount homeopathy because their analytics reveal that there is no detectable active ingredient and it gets stronger by diluting it. From a physical, chemistry level, this does not make any sense. From a quantum physics, energy level it makes perfect sense.Read More
My name is Bob Huttinga, PA-C. I am a Physician assistant in Lakeview, Michigan. Seventeen years ago, my wife, Barbara and I founded The Healing Center. This is a retail health food store and integrative medical clinic where I practice traditional and alternative medication.
I do not have a lot of fancy credentials behind my name. I am a Certified Physician Assistant, a Certified Natural Health Practitioner, and have extensive training in the use of homeopathy, herbs, essential oils, supplements, hypnosis, and stress management. I am like the old country doctor and I still make house calls mostly for Amish and elderly patients. I have worked mostly in family medicine but have also worked in the emergency room, urgent care, and occupational medicine. I am semi-retired and still work two days a week at The Healing Center in Lakeview, Michigan. I work mostly using natural and alternative treatments.
My introduction to homeopathy came about 15 years ago. I was very ill with influenza. A couple years before that, I had experienced a bad reaction to a flu shot, so I had stopped getting them. A patient recommended that I use Oscillococcinum. I had never heard of it, but they sold it at Walgreens, so I bought some. Less than 24 hours after the first dose, I was completely better. I was amazed. I had never seen anything like this before.
Please be aware that the content of this website is mostly based on my training in alternative medicine and not on my traditional training as a physician assistant.
