Dr Jessica Shennan is not your typical practitioner. With close to a decade of experience and a fervent passion for holistic healing, she passionately hopes to help those seeking alternative paths to wellness.

Dr Jessica’s journey into the medical field was heavily influenced by her mother, Ursula, a seasoned nursing sister with over four decades of experience. Witnessing her mother’s love and dedication to patient care is what ignited a spark within her and this pushed her towards a career in medicine. However, it was her personal battle with endometriosis at the tender age of 12 that made her explore natural medicine.

“I was diagnosed with endometriosis and put on the Oral Contraceptive Pill. I gained over 10 kg and was very unhappy. I made it a personal endeavour to find a natural cure. When I became open to the idea of natural medicine, I found an abundance of resources to alternative medicine and successfully treated my endometriosis,” she says.

Homeopathy, as Dr Jessica passionately explains, transcends conventional medicine by addressing not only the physical symptoms but also the mental and emotional well-being of individuals.

“Everything is energy and can be measured as a frequency – including human beings. Different cells within our body vibrate at different frequencies. The concept of frequencies has been around for a long time; however, we now have advanced medical technology that can measure vibrations, frequencies, or resonance,” she explains.

Dr Jessica further explains that homeopathy is frequency medicine and by way of introducing a non-toxic stimulus in the form of a remedy; homeopathy heals by restoring healthy resonant frequencies.

“Disruptions in the energetic fields are removed, innate defense mechanisms are activated, and optimal health is restored. This is why homeopathy is unique in its ability to treat the root cause of illness.”

In her practice, Dr Jessica incorporates a personalised approach, recognising the unique vibrational signatures of each individual. Through the administration of non-toxic remedies, she aims to harmonise the energetic fields, thereby alleviating ailments at their root cause. This holistic perspective distinguishes homeopathy from other forms of alternative medicine, offering a profound understanding of the interconnectedness between mind, body, and spirit.

Despite the challenges posed by scepticism and misconceptions surrounding homeopathy, Dr Jessica remains steadfast in her commitment to spreading awareness and facilitating healing. “I think it’s great to question everything. I’m always open for discussion and I try to explain in the best way possible.”

Outside her professional career, Dr Jessica finds comfort and joy in her role as a mother to her one-year-old son, Joel. Cherishing moments with her family and engaging in community activities, such as singing in the worship team at her local church, provide her with a sense of balance and fulfilment.

Reflecting on her journey thus far, Dr Jessica recalls a touching success story that exemplifies the transformative power of homeopathy.

“I treated a young girl with severe rheumatoid arthritis. It was so bad she couldn’t hold a pen although she loved to write. When she got well she made me a hand-written card to thank me. It meant so much to me that I cried, I was so grateful to be able to help her and she blessed me in return,” she shares.

Dr Jessica believes that homeopathy should be everyone’s first line of defense. “It is very cost effective and provides a gentle, yet effective treatment free of side-effects.”
