Dear Friends, 


Part of what I so love about traveling is the chance to see something new, taste something unique, immerse myself in the different sensory elements: a particular light as it falls across an afternoon, the sounds of other languages mixing on a train, the smell of a fishmonger's stall at village bazaar or the visual feast of a dazzling floral bouquet at a seaside kiosk, flowers there I've never imagined. 


Recently in Gerona, Spain we came upon a 12 piece orchestra playing in a cobblestone town center with hundreds of people Sardana dancing, the Catalan folk dance cherished by people in the region. There were perhaps 100 circles of about 8 people each, sweaters & jackets stacked high in the center of each group as things warmed up. We joined right in, trying to match the solemnity and pride, embraced by our small circle of dancers, copying the footwork, raising our arms with the swell of the tune, swallowed up in the moment.

Seeing something new, experiencing something exotic, joining in with an unknown tradition, all inspire me, refresh me and renew my spirit. I come home the same person but also different, carrying my rich experiences and new images in my heart. 


Find below a piece below from springtime a few years back which offers general information about travel and also a case, close to my heart, about an often overlooked remedy.


May we all have the pleasure of planning a short getaway or a longer voyage or just winging it on a Wednesday afternoon to a nearby town- to freshen things up and spice up our perspectives.


All the best,




Amy Rothenberg ND

Perfect Escapes:

Prevent Peril in Paradise: The Savvy Traveler's Guide

by Amy Rothenberg, ND


All journeys, even travels for pleasure, have their challenges: changes in environment, diet, and schedules can act as stressors that trigger susceptibility to illness.


I am personally grateful to have had the chance to see much of the world, both for fun and for work, and my grown children have created similar opportunities for themselves. When we travel, I like to pack a small set of natural health supplies to have on hand. True, you're likely to find such supplies at whatever destination is on your boarding pass or plugged into the GPS these days. But when you're injured or not feeling well, who wants to strike out looking for a pharmacy, market, or natural food store to put your hands on a particular item?


Over the years, I've also been privileged to help many a globe-trotting patient prepare for and deal with health-related travel issues. I'd like to share my recommendations with you, too - so tuck this article away somewhere, and pull it out when you're next heading off on a trip!

Two New Courses Starting in 2014 / 2015:

10 Weekend Course - Boston, MA area NESH tree logo colored

October 2014 thru April 2016


8 Weekend Course - Seattle, WA area

January 2015 thru May 2016


Courses meet Friday night & all day 

Saturday / Sunday, every other month.


As always, we're psyched to be starting a new NESH group! If you've been thinking about taking the class, now is an opportune time to join! Studying with us in person is the most comprehensive way to learn the Cycles & Segments approach and effectively implement it with patients. These courses are designed for both the beginning and more experienced homeopaths.


Instructors: Drs. Paul Herscu ND, MPH & Amy Rothenberg ND

Email us for more detailed information and an application.


"Studying with Paul is a shortcut to excellence. He has a pragmatic style based on a rock solid philosophy that quickly allowed me to become an extremely competent Homeopath."

- Todd Hoover MD

A Musical Meander through the History of Homeopathy in the USA:


Here's a fun jaunt for you, done some years back, 

to  American Pie, with apologies to Don McClean.

 Nicely written lyrics 

and a spot-on rendition of this classic.

Paul is mentioned toward the end with a picture of Amy & Paul.
