Since she was a young girl, Berni Massari has been aware of her instinctive ability to sense illness in other people. She used her gift to assist medical doctors during exploratory surgery, and, after struggling to find a satisfying career path, decided to apply her talents in the field of natural medicine. Massari went on to earn her PhD and become a fellow of the British Institute of Homeopathy. After working in nursing homes, where traditional Western medicine was not meeting all of the residents' needs, she opened her own group of elderly care homes, and witnessed the restorative powers of homeopathy combined with a healthy dose of compassion.
The natural healthcare specialist, author, and weekly radio-show hostess now shares her passion for healing at Integrative Health Associates. Her wellness philosophy incorporates both classical homeopathy—which uses one remedy at a time to treat disease—and time-sensitive preventative methods to diminish conditions such as chronic pain, allergies, anemia, and psoriasis. The caring practitioner even treats pets, including ferrets suffering from diabetes or parrots who develop laryngitis after living with opera singers.
