Amy Lansky is perhaps the most well known advocate of Homeopathy in the USA. Her heartening personal account of the cure of her autistic son Max with Homeopathy, Impossible Cure, The Promise of Homeopathy, has been a best selling book on Homeopathy since it was released.
Amy grew up in a suburb of Buffalo, New York. She graduated from the University of Rochester in 1977 with degrees in mathematics and computer science, and she received her doctorate in computer science from Stanford University in 1983.
Prompted by the miraculous cure of her son’s autism with homeopathy, after many years at various Silicon Valley research institutions, Amy made a complete career move: Amy became a student, writer, promoter, and, most recently, practitioner of homeopathic medicine. Amy is dedicated to helping others — especially families with autistic children — discover the curative powers of Homeopathy.
Amy’s homeopathic studies have included foundational course work with Misha Norland’s School of Homeopathy in Devon, England; completion of the Homeopathic Master Clinician’s course with Louis Klein; and studies with Simon Taffler, Sadhna Thakkar, Jan Scholten, and Alize Timmerman.
For two years she served as coeditor of The American Homeopath, the journal of the North American Society of Homeopaths.
In December 2003, Amy joined the board of the National Center for Homeopathy in Alexandria, Virginia. She now serves on the board executive as Secretary.
Amy also helped found, and was an executive board member, of the California Health Freedom Coalition from 2001-2005. This is the organization that sponsored SB-577, the California health freedom bill that was passed in September 2002. As part of this legislative process, Lansky testified before a California Senate hearing on alternative medicine.
Much of Amy’s current work involves promoting homeopathy and providing guidance and referrals to parents through email. She often gives lectures, interviews, and writes articles about homeopathy. She also writes a regular column for the Society of Homeopaths Newsletter (UK), “Letter from America”. Her monthly radio show on homeopathy can be found on Autism One Radio (aired the third Friday of each month, 2-2:30pm EST). Amy’s shows are archived for later listening. This show provides an excellent and free short course for those wishing to learn more about homeopathy.
Amy lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband Steve Rubin and her two sons, Izaak and Max Rubin. An avid amateur musician, she has been a vocalist in several local rock bands and has composed several classical works for piano, as well as liturgical vocal pieces. She also enjoys painting, needlework, swimming, and canoeing the lakes of Canada.Amy Lansky
