Founder and Medical Director

Classical Homeopathy, Nutritional and Preventative Medicine

Dr. Bark has studied extensively with internationally renowned Homeopaths such as Massimo Mangialavori, Vasillies Ghegas, Rajan Sarkaran, Divya Chabra, Jan Scholten, Paul Herscu and Louis Klein.

She initially studied homeopathy at The New England School of Homeopathy in Massachusetts and completed her initial training at The National Center for Homeopathy in Virginia. She finished her training in Hypnotherapy with Dr. Ericca Fromm and with the American society for Clinical Hypnosis.


Dr. Bark received her Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from The University of Illinois in 1981 and her medical degree from Rush Medical School in 1986.

Dr. Bark completed her Pediatric Residency training at the University of Illinois, Chicago, in 1991, and trained at New York University in Pediatrics from 1986 through 1987 and Rehabilitation Medicine from 1987 through 1988. Immediately post-residency, Dr. Bark worked as attending staff in the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit at Michael Reese Hospital. She then took a position as the Director of the Pediatric Emergency Room at Michael Reese Hospital until 1993 when her commitment to natural remedies led her to begin her study of Holistic Medicine.

She has maintained a private practice in Homeopathy for more than fifteen years and was the Medical Director for the integrative Medicine department of Advocate Health Care Systems at Good Shepherd Hospital from June of 2000 until July of 2003.

In 2012 Dr. Bark was bestowed the honor of becoming the 2nd Vice President of the American Institute of Homeopathy (AIH). She also received her Masters in Healthcare Emergency Management (MHEM) from Boston University Medical School that same year.


Dr. Bark schedules initial visits for a minimum of one hour for children and two hours for adults. She explores each individual’s unique health concerns and therefore it is helpful to have a dream and food journal prepared for your visit. Because Dr. Bark’s practice of Classical Homeopathy involves understanding much more than just the patient’s body and environment – for instance, their beliefs and individual view of the world – the patient must be willing to explore the role of dreams, attitudes, fears, hopes and desires in relationship to health and overall life satisfaction.

Dr. Bark also utilizes state of the art laboratories for early detection & intervention in reversing disease processes.

Dr Bark is an avid lecturer for medical and health conferences, has been a contributing author for text books on alternative medicine, for the book “vaccine epidemic”, has co produced the documentary “Bought”. She has been featured in several national radio programs, shows and print. If you are interested in having Doctor Bark come and speak, please contact the office at 847-869-7740.
