Addressing people, not disease,
Lisa Samet, N.D. focuses primarily on homeopathy in her Montreal practice
in a wholistic way by encouraging the body to heal itself
About Lisa Samet, N.D.
In her experience it is the deepest healing modality available in that it does not just soothe or palliate symptoms but can actually trigger the body to start to heal itself. This can seem quite miraculous when deep-seated or long-standing problems are actually eradicated as the body, with a push from the homeopathic remedy, starts to rebalance and regain its health. Most of the frustration with conventional medicine today is that although the drugs can take away many of the effects of a disease (pain, inflammation, etc), they don�t actually affect the disease process itself. This is evidenced by the fact that people usually take drugs for chronic illness indefinitely, and even after say, twenty years, if they would go off the medicines, they would likely be in the same place they started or worse off. Frankly, this can also be true in the �natural medicine� world, where supplements and herbs can help the symptoms but never seem to address the chronic susceptibility to a problem. � Read more
It is not easy to master the art of homeopathy. Consulting an experienced practitioner is essential. It is more difficult to find a good homeopathic remedy than to write a prescription for prednisone or antibiotics, for example, or suggest a mixture of herbs or vitamin supplements. While some relief may be experienced from any of these therapies, deep healing will not occur in any comparable way to what is experienced with the correct homeopathic remedy.
The challenge comes in that we are addressing the individual as a whole being, not the disease. In the conventional world there is a drug protocol for the disease name that one has, but in the world of homeopathy, we find a remedy that matches the individual�s personal manifestation of the illness, not on the disease name itself. This is because we are addressing the whole person, not the disease. What this means is that two people with the same disease, for example, rheumatoid arthritis, would likely get two completely different homeopathic remedies. For even though it is the same disease name, the type of pain, the location of the pain, the factors that influence the pain, etc., will most likely be different from one person to the next and these specifics are what the homeopath uses to prescribe on, in addition to a general and thorough understanding of all aspects of the patient.
Sometimes it is challenging for the patient to accurately express what they experience. Because people are complex beings, finding the correct remedy may not always be achieved on the first attempt. The good news is, there are rarely any negative side effects with homeopathy, so it is worth being patient as the results from the correct remedy will be worth your wait.
Due to the difficulty of mastering the art of homeopathy, it is imperative to find a practitioner who is well trained as a �classical� homeopath. This is someone who takes a very thorough case at the initial interview, often lasting more than two hours for an adult with a chronic illness, and then selects one remedy, not a mixture of remedies or alternating different remedies, that best matches the patient�s total symptom picture. In this way, a successful result has the highest chance of being achieved.
Lisa Samet is very experienced, as she has been studying homeopathy since 1989 and practicing since 1999. She considers herself fortunate to have been trained by some of the best in the field. She has seen terrific results in her practice even with very complex diseases.
In addition to homeopathy, Lisa Samet is passionate about helping people with optimizing their diet and learning tools to reduce stress. She will guide you on lifestyle improvements and nutrition optimization, including food sensitivity evaluation to identify hidden foods that continue to keep people sick, as well as detoxification and intermittent fasting to optimize health. Habitual patterns of negative thinking, worrying, anxiety can keep us from enjoying living. These thought patterns and fixed ways of seeing situations in our lives can keep us miserable. Emotional re-patterning work can help patients experience a profound shift, overcoming long-held stuck patterns that prevent them from living their fullest and happiest lives.

When is the Acute Remedy the Chronic Remedy... and Why Isn't It?
"I first saw Lisa for digestive issues that caused me incredible discomfort. Altough I was unsure of homeopathy from a scientific perspective, I was willing to try something other than the limited options I currently had. In spite of my uncertainty, Lisa hit the nail on the head and over the next weeks and months I began feeling much better. I credit my ability to function with a healthy digestive tract to her. Because of her homeopathic and naturopathic training, her strong interpersonal connection and her logical advice, I know I am in good hands with Lisa Samet, N.D.."

"Our son has been under Lisa Samet, N.D.'s care for the last two years. We met her when my then two year old was suffering from recurrent ear infections and delay in speech developpement. From the very beginning we were very reassured by her calmness, her ability to listen and her insightful questions about our child's development and behavior. Along with the remedies, she provided very clear guidelines of what to watch for and how to expect progress to happen. Our son has been thriving under her care. He is now a gregarious four year old who is never lost for words! One of the most impressive aspects of interacting with Lisa Samet, N.D., has been her openness and willingness to demystify the process of homeopathy. Her workshops are very helpful in enabling a better understanding of remedies and the field in general - for us, she stands way out from the rest of the crowd!"

"I have been working with Lisa as my go to medical advisor for almost two years now. She helps my whole family get throught allergies, infections, injuries, and even mood imbalances. This is a service I value and believe in. Making the decision for my family to follow homeopathic medicine with Lisa has been one of the most rewarding decisions in my life. This creates a lifestyle for us that allows us to reach our physical, mental and emotional potential. We do not get sick when others catch the seasonal bugs so we are able to spend our time healthier and happier. I enjoy seeing the wonders of this form of medicine with every passing ailment. I am learning more and more how to use it on my own, which brings me a proud sense of empowerment. I would, and often do, recomment Lisa'a services to everyone seeking better health."

"Lisa Samet, N.D. has been our family doctor for at least 10 years... We are so grateful, her expertise, caring and homeopathic remedies have genuinely helped myself, my husband and our children in countless crises - big and small!"

"Over 10 years ago, I went from medical doctor to medical doctor complaining of several ailments-migraine headaches, horrible menstrual cramps, extreme fatigue, dry skin, just to name a few. I was on the highest level of pain killers for the cramps and headaches (which were not having any effect) and there was nothing to be done for the extreme fatigue. It was supposedly normal because I was a mom and had a full-time job.
After seeing Lisa Samet, N.D., my life changed forever. She asked me questions that no one ever had before and that were specific to my type of headache, my type of cramps, etc. This led her to choose a remedy that cured most of my ailment. My menstrual cramps and headaches were gone-no more drugs were needed for either of those things. My energy started to pick up and I was a different person altogether.
My entire family has been treated homeopathically ever since and we have not looked back. It's always our first line of defense. With Lisa tending to us we had a fabulous success rate and have been spared from taking anti-biotics and other drugs which have potential side effects. Lisa has an ability to listen to her patients, zero in on the key points and prescribe the right remedy. She follows up and makes herself available to her patients. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good naturopath/homeopath.

"When I saw Lisa for the first time mid-July 2011, I was basically at the end of my rope. I had been newly diagnosed with 80+ food allergies and was suffering from headaches/migraines as well as sinus and digestion issues. I had also been on antibiotics for about 2 years for a misdiagnosed infection. Within a couple of months, I no longer suffered from headaches/migraines, I was off all over-the-counter medication as well as the antibiotics, my sinus and digestion issues had settled down, and the eczema I suffer from on my scalp was controlled. My immune system has improved over the past year and I have not had a cold, an infection, or the flu since I saw Lisa. Prior to starting to work with homeopathic remedies, I would catch everything that went around the office. I have only used 1 tylenol in 14 months. Thank you for helping me get my life back!"

"Lisa Samet, N.D. helped me with a difficult issue regarding my daughter. Her behavior was beginning to ruin family events, trips, her social life and her self-esteem. I was worried about her causing irreparable damage to her self-image as well as to her relationships at school. My heart ached when I watched and felt helpless about what to do. You could sense that she was also miserable but did not know what to do about her behavior. I contacted Lisa Samet, N.D. about homeopathy and based on her thorough case-taking she was able to find her remedy. Shortly after taking this homeopathic remedy the daughter that I always knew was in there was revealed to my husband's and my delight. She is now kind, self assured, enjoying her social life, pleasant to be around and most importantly really thriving in middle school. I have worked with another homeopath that did not have the same credentials and the result was the opposite - no change whatsoever. It is Lisa Samet, N.D.'s training and 14 years of experience that differentiates her from the other lay homeopaths that one could consult, she is thorough and committed to finding the solution. Without Lisa Samet, N.D. we would be struggling rather than thriving. Thank you so much!!"

"I went to see Lisa Samet, N.D. after having spent years seeking help for both insomnia and constipation problems. I tried both conventional and alternative methods to no avail. Not only was Lisa Samet, N.D. able to solve both these issues, she was also able to correct my mood, energy levels, eczema, ravenous appetite and allergies. All this with one remedy! I'll never forget the experience or the continued care she offers."

"I suffered with asthma for over 30 years and was prescribed a multitude of different inhalers from a multitude of different doctors. Lisa Samet, N.D. was able to solve the problem with one visit to her office. In addition I have been coughing for many years due to lung secretions (seen many specialists to no effect). The remedy and diet changes suggested by Lisa Samet, N.D. have almost completely cured this long standing problem."
- T.N., 58 y.o., Montreal
"My entire family has worked with Lisa Samet, N.D. for the past nine years. She has treated each of us chronically as well as acutely with great skill - and with great success. There are many who call themselves homeopaths - there are few as well trained as Lisa Samet, N.D.."
