Natalie Scopaz, BA., DCH

Homeopathic Practitioner

Homeopathy is an effective healthcare alternative that can provide long-lasting relief from many conditions and illnesses.  Natural substances are used to stimulate the bodies own healing abilities to restore the person into a state of health.  A homeopath’s goal is to see the thread that connects our entire person.  When the general constitution is stronger, ailments that used to be present disappear more permanently, and susceptibility to illness becomes dramatically less.  Homeopathy has been widely used for over 200 years.  It is a respected form of medicine in many other parts of the world, especially Europe and India, where it is commonly used in clinics and hospitals.

Natalie Scopaz is a classically trained homeopath with a love for the subject. Natalie was first introduced to Homeopathy during her studies in first-year nursing. She quickly resonated with the subject, and then went on to complete a bachelor’s degree, specializing in eastern philosophy. With her love for homeopathy still in hand, she then further pursued her interest, by attending the four year training at the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy.

She continues to keep current her studies by attending seminars regularly. Natalie founded Embody Health Homeopathy soon after graduating, and continues to enjoy her practice in the Sea to Sky corridor.

Natalie is available Tuesdays and Saturdays at Garibaldi Health Clinic.
