NESH Alumni Practitioner Directory Listing

Kamau Kokayi was first exposed to homeopathy during a soul searching year hiatus away from Yale Medical School. His exposure to homeopathy and Chinese medicine sent him on a parallel tracks within the alternative medical field for over thirty-five years. While completing his medical degree at Yale he wrote his thesis on Physics, Acupuncture and Medicine (Where Philosophy Meets Medicine), which gave him a totally different paradigm from which to view health and disease. He has explored health and healing traditions from around the world and is a graduate Priest of a Traditional African Spiritual Society.

As a homeopathic doctor, Dr. Kokayi is a unique practitioner that combines the most up-to-date medical knowledge with homeopathy. After completing his residency in Family Medicine, Dr. Kikayi received certification in acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, and applied kinesiology. He also has extensive post-graduate homeopathic training in the U.S. and Europe.

His medical practice offers diagnostic and therapeutic treatments that include nutritional medicine, herbal medicine, manipulative therapy, nutritional counseling, homeopathy, acupuncture, kinesiology, intravenous therapy, and bioenergetics. Dr. Kokayi views complaints not as separate, isolated issues, but as part of a larger story caused by imbalances in the body.
