About

Homeopathy Delaware is an informal gathering of people interested in learning about the use of homeopathy and sharing that knowledge with others. Local homeopaths come to speak on various topics in an interactive dialogue with attendees.

Meetings are held in Newark, Delaware with participants from the tri-state area of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland. Meetings are FREE and open to all.

We are associated with the National Center for Homeopathy. Learn about what homeopathy is.


Key People

Christine Mercante, BS

Chris discovered Homeopathy in the late 1980’s after suffering for three years with severe depression and exhaustion. She felt driven to learn more about this remarkable form of medicine that had literally transformed her life.

As a result of her quest for knowledge, she is passionate about helping others to understand the importance of this little known drug-free modality.

Chris has used her skills to treat and cure a variety of childhood illnesses for her four children, her husband and her friends. The past four years have been spent giving back to NCH by coordinating the New Castle County Study Group: Homeopathy Delaware.

“I am happy to make this contribution to the local community to advance the proper usage of Homeopathic Products. It is important to me to educate and share the beauty and harmony of Homeopathy with others. I believe Homeopathy is the gift that keeps on giving.” – Chris Mercante

Barbara Bason, B.A., B.S., PCH, CBT

Barbara is a graduate of the University of Delaware with degrees in Biology and Medical Technology.

She holds certificates in classical Homeopathy from the Allen Academy (Robert Bannan) and in advanced classical Homeopathy from the Dynamis School (Jeremy Sherr).

Barbara is a registered member of both the National Center for Homeopathy and the Minnesota Homeopathic Association.

Following a 10 year career in childbirth education and doula/midwifery work, Barbara established her own practice in family-centered Classical Homeopathy in 1999. She is a certified CEASE Therapy practitioner (Complete Elimination of Autistic Spectrum Expression) and a certified supervisor for Free and Healthy Children International (homeoprophylaxis for infectious, contagious disease).

Barbara is also certified in the practice of Bowen Therapy, a gentle form of physical therapy that has been called ‘the body work of homeopathy’. She added the Bowen Therapy to her practice in 2001 as a complement to her homeopathy practice.

Barbara is passionate about natural approaches to healing and believes a well informed public — knowledgeable about their options — offers the best solution for making sound personal choices.

To that end, Barbara donates her time and expertise on a monthly basis to teach “all who are interested” in learning about how to use homeopathy in acute, self-limiting health situations such as injuries and illnesses, thus helping people feel better quickly without the side-effects of conventional medicines.
