There are so many things I could write here, about all the color and knowledge he brings to each of those courses, the insight from other professions, the constant humor lightening tense moments, and helping us remember the humanity within each other and our patients. I could also write about very, very late night poker games. Lastly, I could also thank him for reminding me to love life fully and unapologetically.

Randall Shields – Bethesda, Maryland
Alexis Shields ND – Lisbon, Portugal
NESH Alumni Practitioner Directory Listing

NESH’s first, and so far only, father-daughter homeopathy duo!

Paul here … Let’s get to brass tacks. Playing poker with Randall is always exciting. An ‘old school’ player, nothing wild, I had to ratchet down my odds calculations. I feel like I was playing poker in the 19th century. A dry wit and sense of humor, I have to say I always learn a lot from Randall. He asks excellent pointed questions. He modeled being a loving husband and engaged father and also how to evolve through enormous challenges, most often with a smile on his face and a useful assessment of the situation.

When Alexis showed up at the NESH class in PDX we were thrilled to keep the homeopathy bug alive and growing in one family. Her work with Shannon, around the world & closer to home reflects the way she was raised, to be herself, to be helpful to others, and to let the love shine through to family, friends, and patients.
