Dr. Bekker was born in the Ukraine and came to the U.S. when he was ten years old. He has an undergraduate degree in English Literature and Philosophy. After teaching English at the community college level he decided to pursue his medical education. He received his medical degree in 1996 from the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Dr. Bekker completed his internship training in Family Medicine at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital in Beaumont, Texas. He has had extensive clinical experience working in rural hospital Emergency Departments in Texas.
Dr. Bekker was introduced to homeopathy by a friend twenty five years ago. After experiencing first-hand how homeopathy restores health and well-being, he became passionate about this great therapeutic method as a unique way to help people. The field of study of homeopathy is vast. He has studied with Andre Saine at the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy. Since then he has been a serious student of the masters of homeopathy: Dr. S. Hahnemann, Dr. C. Hering, Dr. A. Lippe, Dr. J.T.Kent, Dr. P. Schmidt, and the wonderful legacy of brilliant American homeopathic physicians of the 19th and 20th centuries. This great curative legacy inspires us to practice pure Homeopathy consistent with Hahnemannian principles.
Dr. Bekker has had extensive experience in treating patients with homeopathy in Dallas since 1999. Many acute and chronic conditions improve and disappear under homeopathic treatment. Homeopathy has been a blessing to the lives of our family, friends and patients. We are also believers in natural childbirth and we have had all five of our children born at home with midwives.
Our vision is to see a safe and effective homeopathy take its rightful place as the treatment of choice for many people avoiding unnecessary medications and surgery.
