Shobha Vasa has witnessed the wonders of Homeopathy since a very tender age as she grew up in Mumbai (Bombay), India in a family where Homeopathy has been the tradition: Her dad, the late Dr. Rasiklal Dani was a popular homeopath and a firm follower of Hahnemann’s principles. He was ably supported in his clinic by his wife Indu Dani. Shobha’s brother is a practicing Homeopath and she continues the family custom. With the support and guidance of her family she has deeply studied and discovered the scientific basis and secrets of Homeopathy.
Shobha earned her Bachelor of Homeopathic Medicine and Surgery (BHMS) in 1993 from the University of Mumbai via CMP Homeopathic Medical College. BHMS is a five and a half years’ full time degree course including one year of internship in Homeopathic Hospital and confers a Doctor credential in India.
After Internship, Shobha worked full time as a Resident Medical Officer (RMO) at D. S. Kothari Hospital, Mumbai, following which she received invaluable experience as an assistant to the eminent Homeopathic Doctor K. N. Kasad.

Deborah studied with David Little for 7 years. David is one of the only homeopaths teaching Hahnemann’s advanced methods in the USA. He lives in the Himalayan Mountains in India and treats hundreds of very sick and dying people at his free clinic. He is the master of the LM potency and using remedies in water. Her studies with David have made her one of the most popular homeopaths in the Los Angeles area due to her proficiency in patient management skills, where she learned to artistically adjust the dose for each patient according to their own sensitivities. She has even taught this method at the National Homeopathic Conference.
Deborah went on to continue her Hahnemannian studies with Dr. Farokh Master for 7 years and that still continues today. She has learned a tremendous amount of knowledge from his vast clinical experience in India where he treats hundreds of very sick people daily. Learning from David Little & Dr. Master has been by far her most prized part of her education.
Deborah was also accepted, as one of the limited students to study with Massimo Mangialavore in is Master Class for 6 years in his home country of Italy. Massimo is one of the leading teachers in the world.
Along the way, Deborah has taken many webinars and attending many seminars with the great names of homeopathy such, Jan Scholten, Divya Chabra, Frans Vermeulen, Lou Klein and many more.
Deborah graduated from The San Diego Center of Homeopathic Education & Training. There she studied with Bill Mann LAc. and Dr. Todd Rowe, MDH, CCH, D. H. T. She went on to do a year of supervised clinical work with Dr. Rowe in his clinic in Arizona.
In 2017 Deborah started a podcast & YouTube channel called Vidal Speaks. It is about using homeopathy, a plant-based diet, and other natural remedies to regain or sustain health. You can find her podcast on iTunes or on her website, which is vidalspeaks.com.
In 2018 Deborah began to do her own YouTube videos so she teaches people how to get well using homeopathy to assist the body in detox. These specific cleansing techniques are called homotoxocology. Part of the She also uses organotherapy along with adopting a whole food plant-based, high fruit diet.
Deborah has been interested in DETOX since 1990 when she got sick as a Pro golfer on the LPGA tour from the overload of pesticides used on the courses. She got well by using homeopathic remedies to not only assist in the deep detoxification of her body but also by using deeper miasmatic and constitutional remedies to heal her issues in the deepest way possible. This is why she became so interested in homeopathic drainage, which is an old therapy to drain and assist the elimination organs in order to prepare it for the deeper healing remedies. Many old drainage masters believed drainage was necessary before giving a constitutional type remedy as many symptoms are only from auto-intoxication. She studied all of the old and modern homeopathic books on homeopathic drainage, which is also known as homotoxicology. She also uses a therapy known as organotherapy which uses organ-specific homeopathic remedies in low-dose to stimulate or aid the organs in detoxification. The new name for drainage is bio-therapeutic drainage because it includes the use of low potency drainage remedies along with organotherapy, oligotherapy & gemmotherapy to aid in detoxification.
In 2018 Deborah became certified as a Detoxification & Regeneration practitioner by the International School of Regenerative Detoxification also known as ISOD & taught by the renowned Dr. Robert Morse. She undertook this study because she realized so many of her patients were sick from toxic overload. Her certification was focused on using a high fruit, plant-based diet & homeopathic remedies to detox & heal the body.
In 2018, she also became a certified & practicing Iridologist by the ISOD School. Iridology has been a fantastic addition to her homeopathic practice because it has allowed her to see where the weaknesses truly are and how many toxins are interfering with function. This study is one of the most beneficial sciences she has come across today!
Deborah believes in constantly studying and learning because people are sicker than ever today. She believes that treating a patient homeopathically is very difficult today because patients have layers of toxins, drugs, or vaccinations, along with wrong diets that have allowed the body to have many toxic layers or blockages that need to be dealt with before a good remedy can work. She believes that we need to learn to first get the emunctory organs that carry the toxins out of the body to work again so they can help clear the body of toxins before a deep and necessary homeopathic remedy will work. She uses many cleansing protocols that help restore cellular function, which allows the body’s emunctory organs to be able to carry out the toxic wastes. She believes homeopaths need to learn how to deal with the huge burden of toxic overload we are all confronting today. To do this we have to advance the way we practice homeopathy because constitutional prescriptions as a first prescription are only producing very poor results, which in the end will not advance homeopathy. Deborah spends a lot of time reading & researching & detoxing. She teaches all her info on her website via her VS Club, which is a paid online classroom. Also, she teaches using her YouTube Channel & her Podcast which you can find at her website: vidalspeaks.com
