A Few Words About Us

We specialize in classical homeopathy, which is also known as the Hahnemannian method as outlined in The Organon written by the founder of homeopathy Samuel Hahnemann. Homeopathy has been used for over 200 years and is based on ancient medical principles that have not changed over the years and continue to prove to be effective today. Homeopathy is about treating the person who has the disease rather than treating separate body parts.  The reason that we love homeopathic medicine so much is that it can have a profound healing effect on the entire person including mental and emotional shifts as well as physical improvement. It acts to bring the body back into balance and this allows the body to initiate its own healing response. 

“By similar things a disease is produced and through the application of the like is cured”.

About the Homeopath

Lydia Arnold


Lydia grew up in a large dutch family where homeopathic medicine was used by her mother for the many ailments that came about, from a cold and flu, fever, teething, PMS, falls, broken bones and more. It was in university, when Lydia went to a homeopath for constitutional treatment with amazing results, that Lydia began to study more about it. As a psychology major, the principles of homeopathy made sense because illness is treated not only based on a persons’ phsycial symptoms but on their mental and emotional state as well. And the realization that homeopathy can have such a powerful effect on the mind, thereby being able to help with depression, anxiety, bipolar, schizophrenia, ADHD, OCD and more. Homeopathic medicine became a passion for Lydia as the depth of her knowledge of homeopathy continued to grow and the realization of how deeply homeopathic medicine can act to bring a lasting cure on all levels, not only physical but mental and emotional as well. In fact, in homeopathy the mental and emotional state is the most important in choosing an individualized homeopathic medicine. Homeopathy fascinates Lydia because of the wide realm of opportunity homeopathy offers to individuals in reaching their health goals. Homeopathy is powerful and it works because it follows the simple laws of nature!

After Lydia completed her undergraduate degree in Psychology from Wilfrid Laurier University, she then went on to study homeopathic medicine and health sciences at the Ontario College of Homeopathic Medicine, where she graduated with honours in homeopathy. She is a regulated homeopath through the College of Homeopaths. Lydia has had the opportunity to study with master homeopaths including Dr. Rajan Sankaran, Dr. Jan Scholten, Frans Vermeulen, Linda Johnston and Alize Timmermans.

Lydia lives with her husband and three young sons just outside of Woodstock. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, cooking, gardening and hiking.

Lydia welcomes to the Homeopathic Wellness Clinic, all patients with any health concerns.
