Anna Cox, CCH, RSHom(NA)
Anna practices classical homeopathy in Los Angeles, California. She was introduced to homeopathy in a bio-physics class at the American University of Complementary Medicine. The fundamental principles of homeopathy so paralleled the concepts of resonance in physics that she was intrigued to study homeopathy in greater depth. It began a journey that culminated in a 10-year clinical research project investigating the combination of classical homeopathy paired with bio-feedback examining predictability. The evidence in the clinical application offers clarity to theoretical postulates in both fields.
On a personal note, the application of homeopathy with the researched feedback, corrected a state of bilateral breast cancer, a neurodegenerative condition and incredible improvement in vision that was also rapidly deteriorating with a diagnosed trajectory of blindness. She has consistently witnessed equal results in numerous clients suffering a wide array of chronic disease. She emphatically says, “I am passionate about expanding homeopathy, about establishing a strong, self-regulated profession with the freedom for homeopaths to progress the field unbound by licensure or regulation within any modality that has conflicting principles. With aligned passion to these causes, I will be proud to serve on the board of NASH.”

NASH Bi-National Liaison
It is a great honor to be a part of NASH, as my self-imposed purpose in life is to promote homeopathy. Most of my working career was working in a large chemical plant, coupled in the last ten years of service owning and operating my own heating and cooling company. Unfortunately for me working two careers had a cost to my health. In 2003 I was diagnosed with a very aggressive and advanced form of cancer with very few progressive options. I did have surgery but in 2008, it started to come back. Fortunately an early retirement led me to a school of homeopathy, where I asked my teacher to “fix it”. And I was around to graduate a year later. I must admit the real credit in this story goes to my wife for her direction and persistence.
I started practicing in a very small town in Ontario, where there was a distinct lack of understanding for anything different. Not to be dissuaded I joined a few organizations and boards as well as travelling to three NCH conferences. When Ontario decided to regulate homeopathy I volunteered for whatever I could to get it off the ground and am still actively involved in supervising registrants. Regulation occurred in 2015 and I was already in the process of applying; I received the number designation of 15027 or the fifteenth Registered homeopath in 2015. The number of Registered homeopaths in Ontario is over 500 and growing. The benefits seem to outweigh the negatives and the cost. I am also on the founding board of the National Association of Homeopaths (Canada), which when formed should not only unify our community but also bring some research dollars to homeopathy.
So America what are you waiting for – get organized and help NASH lead the charge!
Carleen Johnson, CCH, RSHom(NA)
NASH Executive Director
Being witness to the miracle of homeopathy when her children were young, she began her studies of this amazing science with one of the first NCH study groups in Maine. Many of the members of that study group came to be practitioners, as did Carleen. Attending any homeopathic workshop within a 300 miles radius, she eventually enrolled in the New England School of Homeopathy where she completed their 3-year program and continued on with their Clinical Program. Upon completing her CCH, she served on the Board of The North American Society of Homeopaths as Secretary for a number of years. When given the opportunity to help the Executive Director for a few years, she found a new way of being involved in the profession of homeopathy. It has been a joy for her to continue working with the Board and an added bonus to connect with the NASH members.
In addition to her homeopathic training, she also holds a degree in psychology, a Master’s in Education and Certificate of Advanced Studies in career development. While working within the various worlds of public schools, hospitals and health care settings she has found a fondness of administration and program management. She has maintained a homeopathic practice since 1995 in the Central Maine area where she enjoys gardening, cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and kayaking.
