Zettl Homeopathy was started in 2010 by European-trained homeopath, Christy Zettl, to provide the highest standard in complementary health care to people seeking safe, natural, and non-invasive approaches to health management.
Christy is the only degree trained homeopath in Vancouver.
Zettl Homeopathy’s practice philosophy
Health is the ability to flexibly respond and adapt to the environment around us. It is a dynamic state. At Zettl Homeopathy, the self-regulatory ability of the body is called the defense mechanism. It is the overriding energy that responds to stress and maintains homeostasis.
Sometimes stress is sufficiently intense that symptoms arise in response to it and our defense mechanism is not able to resolve the imbalance on its own. Stress can come in many different forms (e.g. physical, emotional, mental, nutritional, physical, or genetic predispositions) and each person reacts uniquely whether on the physical, emotional, or mental levels.
When symptoms become sub-acute and chronic, it is a sign the defense mechanism has been weakened and thus is unable to overcome its current difficulty. The goal of treatment is to strengthen the body’s defense mechanism.
Safe, natural, and non-toxic homeopathic remedies are individually prescribed to strengthen and support the body’s defense mechanism and self-regulatory abilities.
Health is not in a bottle. It is in how we live. A pragmatic approach to diet, exercise, and rest is included in the package of care. Less is more when it comes to maintaining good health and small, measurable, daily changes are the way to lasting change.
Zettl Homeopathy has a special interest in helping people sleep better and naturally improving energy levels. Whatever the chief complaint is, improving quality of sleep and energy levels is vital to supporting the processes involved in restoring health and well being.

In 2008, Christy received a Bachelor of Sciences (Honours): Health Sciences in Homeopathy from the University of Westminster in London, UK.
Before starting Zettl Homeopathy, Christy did post-graduate studies at International Academy for Classical Homeopathy, founded by Alternative Nobel Prize winner (1996) and internationally renowned classical homeopath, George Vithoulkas.
She was introduced to homeopathy in her late teens when it cured her lifelong eczema after a couple doses (and has stayed away for fourteen years and counting). She has found following classical homeopathy protocol and administering minimal doses on an individual basis is capable of sustaining health for extended periods of time.
Christy has also completed the Self Regulation Therapy Practitioner training (Foundation and Advanced Level) and Psychological Anatomy with the Canadian Foundation for Trauma Research & Education, Inc. (Registered Canadian Charity).
Christy is a registered member in good standing with:
- North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH), registration #403, RSHom(NA) designation
- BC Association of Homeopaths (BCAH), registration #144
Zettl Homeopathy is fully insured.
From 2012 – 2015, Christy was the Membership Secretary of the BC Society of Homeopaths (now called the BC Association of Homeopaths), a non-profit organization devoted to promoting excellence of homeopathic practice in British Columbia. The BCAH maintains a register of homeopathic practitioners in British Columbia who meet educational requirements, abide to the BCAH Code of Ethics, and undergo continuing education to maintain their membership.
During Christy’s time on the board, they wrote and passed with members a Standards of Practice for Homeopaths in British Columbia, set up a member professional and general liability insurance plan, and introduced paperless new member applications and member annual renewals. She was also happy to interview and welcome over twenty new members into the organization.
