ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
MICHELLE PICKERING, DSH, CCH, a graduate and diploma holder from The School of Homeopathy New York (TSHNY), and a Certified Classical Homeopath, began her homeopathic practice in CT, USA in 2006. Michelle has mentored dozens of homeopaths, worked in 4 hospitals and 15 mobile clinics, and done countless outreaches. She has volunteered, worked independently and in collaboration with other homeopaths and medical practitioners in the United States, Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and now, her present home country of Uganda.
In 2016, on moving to Uganda Michelle founded Zuri Global Health (previously Zuri Homeopathics) where she has been instrumental in advancing the field of homeopathy through clinical trials, research and development, training and capacity building, and advocacy. In partnership with the Ugandan Society of Homeopaths, Michelle advocated for the inclusion of homeopathy as part of the Traditional and Indigenous Medicine Bill, the first bill legalizing traditional medicine in Uganda. In addition, she has successfully registered four (4) homeopathic combination remedies with the Uganda National Drug Authority (NDA), and collaborated with them to model herbal medicine standards for other traditional medicine practitioners.
Michelle currently participates in the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) to Rollback Malaria in Uganda, and joins global efforts to eradicate tropical diseases. She spends most of her time working in research and development, and doing outreaches in communities impacted by poverty and disease. She is a passionate healer with an alternative approach, and is dedicated to helping clients move through a wide range of physical and emotional transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible.
