KATHLEEN SCHEIBLECCH (she/her/hers)
Homeopathy is very personalized care. Ensuring you get the best possible results requires careful listening and observation skills. Deep listening is a skill I’ve cultivated since I was very young. As the process of healing unfolds, I honor your feedback as an integral and essential part of your health care.
My interest in homeopathy was sparked when I was so impressed by what it did for my kids’ health. My son had chronic glue ear after many rounds of antibiotics for ear infections as a baby, and then suddenly developed asthma and eczema as well. We had tried the steroid creams, inhaler, and anti-mucous medications which did not help very much, and I was beginning to wonder if all of the medications were adding to his susceptibility. Within a month of visiting a homeopath and taking two doses of a remedy she selected specifically for him, all three things were much better. We then took my step-son to see the homeopath, who had been out of school for six months suffering from chronic migraine headaches and debilitating nausea after contracting viral spinal meningitis. Within three days, all of his symptoms were gone, and he was back in school, with good energy and good health. Both kids enjoyed much better energy and emotional health after their homeopathic treatment. Now I know that with homeopathic care, the restoration of a person's "vital force" is what results in improved emotional and physical health, rather than suppression of symptoms.
Though I had a very fulfilling career as a mechanical engineer in the semiconductor equipment business, that year I began studying homeopathy and knew I would practice it someday.
I have practiced homeopathy since 2005.
I graduated from the Pacific Academy of Homeopathy in San Francisco, and have been awarded the designation Certified Classical Homeopath by the Council for Homeopathic Certification, and so am Board Certified in Classical Homeopathy, the highest available certification for homeopaths in the U.S.
I founded the Bay Area Homeopathy Association in 2007, and am currently President of the California Homeopathic Medical Society, founded in 1887.
Bernal Heights is my neighborhood, and I have a general practice. I specialize in helping people heal from physical, emotional, and trans-generational trauma in the many ways that people can experience its after-effects. This includes chronic cognition and memory issues, depression, anxiety, behavioral issues, headaches and other pain especially after a head injury / traumatic brain injury (TBI).
To learn more about homeopathy for trans-generational trauma, I recommend this article written by my colleague Lauren Trimble, in Canada.
I am also happy to help people reduce their susceptibility to non-trauma related chronic symptoms including auto-immune conditions, hormonal imbalance, anxiety, insomnia, headaches, digestive disorders, skin conditions, and ADD/ADHD & OCD and many other conditions.
I started a pro-bono homeopathic clinic at the Bernal Heights Neighborhood Center in 2011 where I have helped many local elders with arthritis, chronic back and injury pain, depression, anxiety, restless leg syndrome, and more. I have closed this offering as of October, 2023.
After the Camp Fire in Paradise, California in 2018 I have volunteered my homeopathic services as well as my time as an "Ambassador" for homeopath volunteers with the Integrative Healers Action Network. IHAN is an intrepid and ground-breaking non-profit providing integrative health services to people effected by disasters such as the California wildfires, in partnership with the Red Cross. This work has greatly revealed to me the urgency and potential for an integrative, collaborative team care approach for people in trauma, experiencing a wide range of limitations in their health and spirit. The capacity for human resilience is amazing, and I'm humbled and gratified to be a part of this model of care.
From January 2020 through July 2022, my colleague Mary Johnston and I have had a free homeopathy clinic twice monthly at Community Well in San Francisco's Excelsior district. The grant funding for this clinic has ended, but we hope to return to Community Well when funding is secured for an accessible traditional healing clinic.
"My overall health and emotional wellbeing is so very improved, I can't begin to explain it in a review. Moving forward, I will consult Kathleen for any ailment I have. She is a very gifted practitioner."
Bernal Homeopathy is co-located in a dynamic office of healers from East-West Integrative Medicine and several other independent health businesses.
Join us in this episode as we dive into an incredible conversation with Kathleen, who has dedicated herself to spreading the word about homeopathy and bringing it to the forefront of people's minds. She has accomplished so much, paving the way for homeopathy to flourish in various organizations, including the Red Cross and the fire service.

In this episode we discuss Kathleen's homeopathic origin story and how she went from being an engineer to a classical homeopath.
We discuss how we can bring homeopathy to a larger population and serve our communities at a local and national level. We highlight the efficacy of homeopathy in treating trauma - both acute trauma and chronic trauma - and how the nervous system plays a role in care. We also touch on how homeopathy can meet the person where they are at. There are so many issues that homeopathy can effectively address from acute shock, to ear infections, to depression and anxiety, to chronic conditions such as autoimmunity, GERD, and chronic pain.
The take away from this episode, though, is that there is always hope and that the human spirit is incredibly resilient. No matter what challenges lie before us, there are supportive tools that we can reach for that aid in our growth and evolution and strengthen our resolve.
Kathleen shares how she was inspired to start practicing homeopathy after she used it to help both of her sons heal from significant health issues.
Sandi tells the story of her own healing journey with homeopathy after an injury.
They help us understand that homeopathy is a holistic system of healthcare, which helps teach the body how to heal itself. The approach is to find a remedy that is specific to the person, not just to the symptom.
Nick shares his story of initial skepticism with homeopathy – once he understood how to use it, he saw the power in its effectiveness.
Kathleen explains what exactly homeopathic remedies are made of, underneath the umbrella of naturopathic medicine.
Sandi & Kathleen also discuss the “like cures like” theory as well as paradoxical ideas within the practice.
They share some ideas about the ways homeopathy works on an emotional and spiritual level, particularly with trauma.
We discuss how the foundational theories of practicing homeopathy encourage an open mind to difference and queerness.
We also share stories of how alternative healing modalities are often more comfortable or accessible for queer folks.
Finally they discuss how the FDA is currently scrutinizing the practice and manufacturing of homeopathy in the United States.
