Dr. Mann has traveled extensively in Europe and Asia, and since the early 1970s has had an abiding interest in eastern philosophies and meditation. After pursuing a doctorate in Buddhist studies and meditation at the California Institute of Asian Studies in San Francisco, he became interested in the healing powers of nature, and in 1978 helped found the Pacific College of Naturopathic Medicine. He moved to Seattle to continue his studies at Bastyr University, where he graduated with a degree in naturopathic medicine.
He has been teaching at Bastyr University since 1997 and was Dept. Chair from 2000-2012. He has participated in homeopathic seminars both in the United States and Europe since 1992, and he continues to be part of a homeopathic seminar that meets twice a year in Leuven, Belgium, with Henny Heudens-Mast. He has a diplomat in homeopathy by the Homeopathic Academy of Naturopathic Physicians.
Dr. Mann has been a practicing naturopathic physician at the same location in the Capitol Hill neighborhood in Seattle, since 1987.
What is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is a medical practice that uses small amounts of medicine to stimulate the organism to heal itself. Extremely helpful for mental, emotional and physical complaints, homeopathy has been a respected method of practice in the United States, Europe and throughout the world for over 200 years. In many European countries homeopathy is a medical specialty much as one might specialize in the treatment of psychological and neurological diseases, or in the treatment of the heart.
In the United States, homeopathy is the only medicine officially recognized by Congress, and has its own separate medical pharmacopia. Homeopathic substances are recognized as medicine and regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration. Classical homeopathic treatment always attempts to address the deepest cause of a personâ€™s illness by addressing the mental, emotional and physical aspects of the person as well as childhood history, history of the patientâ€™s previous illnesses, possible causations, of disease and illness, and removal of obstacles to cure. Proper homeopathic treatment is always patient oriented, remembering that it is the person that has the disease, and not the disease that has the person.
