The MICH faculty is made up of a small group of individuals who come from complementary backgrounds, but with common interests: holism and homeopathy. We have collaborated for many years in teaching, researching holistic approaches, and the role of personal transformation in healing. We all teach by vocation, share a common work ethic and personal devotion to teaching. This makes for a well-integrated faculty with members who deeply respect each other and value each other’s contributions. As a team, we provide consistency in both philosophy and approach and know how to work together and for the students’ best interests. All MICH teachers hold a holistic understanding of the human condition, and the transpersonal nature of homeopathic practice.

Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom

MICH Founder, Director and Teacher
Contribution: Holistic understanding, diagnosis and process

Judyann facilitates students’ ability to perceive another’s essential nature, in order to see and address the individual as a whole. She is known for her interactive and experiential conferences, which explore awareness, diagnosis, and homeopathic process from a holistic (and quantum) understanding.

Originally a physicist and biomedical researcher (biophysics), Judyann has had a clinical practice for over 15 years, has held conferences since 1984 and has been a teacher of courses in physics, science, health, holism and spirituality since 1975. Judyann is a Homeopath with classical unicist training, a Naturopath, and founder of the International Association for Holistic Professionals (IAHP).

Judyann graduated with honors in Physics, and a major in Biology and went on to graduate studies in microwaves and field theory.While doing post graduate research in bio-physics, she taught evening classes in physics to airline pilots and nurses, expressing her talent of making even the most complicated subjects accessible.

While working in the Bio-medical/Bio-Physics research field, she witnessed interesting experiments involving bio-photon exchange and transmission in living cells, which sparked her to explore research in quantum biology and subtle energy fields, and led her to homeopathy.

She thoroughly enjoys sharing her insights for prescribing on the deepest level possible, fervently exploring the mysteries of life with her students and colleagues.
