If you are looking for an alternative or enhancement to managing your health, I would whole heartedly recommend making an appointment with Mercedes Barnek. Mercedes has the most calming effect on a person. She spends all the time that is needed to observe and listen to your ailments and thoughtfully makes her recommendations. Speaking from experience Mercedes was able to find a remedy that works with my constitution and I use it regularly. I know I can call upon her anytime the need arises, and she will encourage me to trust in the wisdom of my body. Mercedes Barnek is a healer in the truest sense.

I happened to mention to Mercedes one day in one of my sessions with her, that my cat Blue was having trouble assimilating with our other two cats who are much older than him. He was the cat that hung around our property for a few months, and then adopted himself. I shared that he had this Jekyll and Hyde personality, one minute loving and the next minute attacking, and our other cats lives were miserable as a result (as well as the state of our hands and wrists). It had gotten to the point that we were thinking we’d have to give him up and find him a new home, which was heart-breaking to both my husband and I, but we could see no other way. Immediately Mercedes said she could help, and knew exactly what remedy could help Blue. And that’s exactly what happened – I gave Blue the prescribed remedy and the difference was pretty remarkable. Remarkable enough to know that he was going to be able to stay with us and call us home. I gave him the remedy only a few times, and over the last couple of years he’s settled down and is the most amazing cat. I feel so blessed, and I know he does too. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Mercedes.

After consulting with my primary care physician regarding right hip and thigh pain that was severe and continuing for over a month., I consulted an orthopedic physician. A hip injection was ordered and I was recommended to me to have another X-ray. The X-ray showed the hip was normal and did not need hip replacement and did not have arthritis. Spinal injections were then recommended with the thought the pain was coming from a nerve. There was no improvement after that injection. A second spinal injection in a different location was recommended and done and there was no improvement. I then tried acupuncture with a licensed acupuncturist and had seven treatments over a course of three weeks. There was no improvement and the pain became worse. I then contacted Mercedes and she recommended a homeopathic remedy which I tried for two weeks and did not help. She then suggested another homeopathic remedy for me to try and I saw improvement and continued to have improvement until the pain disappeared completely.
I have had chronic sinusitis for over forty years. During this time, I had major sinus surgery and allergen immunotherapy, but continued to have between three and six sinus infections per year. Three years ago, I began working with Mercedes. She gave me a homeopathic remedy and suggested vitamins to fortify my immune system after years of taking antibiotics and steroids. She told me about breathing exercises and suggested reading materials on the natural healing of the respiratory system. Over the past three years, I have had only two sinus infections. Environmental factors and stresses of daily life have sometimes weakened my immune system, but Mercedes has coached me through these times suggesting new habits and goals. I highly recommend Mercedes for her holistic approach to healing. She looks at the whole person, not just the acute symptoms, and guides you with homeopathic, nutritional and exercise advise that is life changing.
Mercedes Barnek has treated me for the past several years for chronic and acute health issues with homeopathy. I can only say that her skill and knowledge have enhanced my health, functioning and overall well being tremendously. My high intraocular pressure caused by glaucoma has been normalized, and my painful muscular condition has greatly improved. Mercedes has helped me enormously with the negative emotional impact of stressful situations in my life. She is knowledgeable and compassionate — a winning combination! I could not recommend her (and homeopathy) more highly.
Mercedes Barnek was of great assistance to me as I weaned away from 20th century medicine towards Mother Earth’s original medicines. Mercedes’ kindness, vast knowledge, and supportive presence were healing gifts in the midst of what had been described to me as crisis to the body. Through her gentle guidance, my body began its healing journey. Now six years later, I continue to follow Mercedes’ knowledge, and by sharing of her with family and friends.
After taking the remedy I feel calmer, there is a major shift in one of my PMS patterns, my energy is more balanced — less disparity between the right and left sides of my body. I feel more in touch with my overall inner truth and direction in life. I have been shifting my thinking, direction in life and point of view which I was not able to do before the remedy — not consciously accessible to me. It has helped unlock the very deep layers of stuffed in creativity.
Mercedes is the best. I have never felt so well cared for as when I started working with her. She works really hard to try to solve any health problem you might have and never gives up until she does it. I have been diagnosed with diabetes and hypothyroidism and in 6 months she got my blood sugar down to normal. My husband and I highly respect her for her dedication, her belief in homeopathy, her attention to detail, and making me feel like she is a friend. She has always taken the time to explain any thing I didn’t understand and patiently waited for me to get it. I appreciate her making me feel like I am part of her team and that I am working with her, not just doing what she tells me to. I highly recommend her.
My name is Tim Ayers and I want to take a moment to express my gratitude for Mercedes healing process. I was at a place in my life where I didn’t know where to turn. I typed holistic healing in a search engine and I was blessed to have Mercedes practice come up and Yes together I did heal my body. I thank God for putting this wonderful woman in my life when I needed her support most. Thank you.

When I first learned about homeopathy eight years ago, I was thrilled and relieved. I wanted help for my infant son’s condition. Working in the pharmaceutical industry, I knew that drugs ALWAYS have toxicities and side effects. Just read the package insert – scary stuff! Homeopathic medicine, on the otherhand, used widely throughout the world, uses naturally occurring ingredients that are even safe for babies. The remedies work in harmony with the body’s immune system, enabling the body to balance it’s energies and do what it was built to do – grow, heal, prevent illness, and thrive. Mercedes’ expert care has been absolutely invaluable to our family.

In 2005 I had started homeopathic care with a practitioner who helped me get off several medications for depression. However, when I met Mercedes Barnek in 2007 I was still taking about 5 heavy medications for migraine headaches, anxiety and ADD. I felt exhausted by life and disconnected from anything truly valuable. After one thorough session, Mercedes was able to identify one remedy that fit my case. Within a couple of months I was free of all medications. The migraines decreased in frequency and intensity and within a year were gone completely. In the next two years I had the strength to welcome more positive and healthy changes into my life. I started to look and feel healthier than ever and enjoyed the energy to be present in my life. I began a regular yoga practice and in the fall of 2008 I became a certified yoga teacher.
Through the process of healing I became acutely aware of the natural wisdom of the human body and the direct relationship between body, mind and spirit. As an artist, I was always working toward understanding patterns in nature. A connection that I strived to find through art making was now also crystallizing in the experience of my own body. Homeopathy helped provide a link of understanding that was otherwise only conceptual.
I am very grateful to Mercedes for assisting me in the process of getting my life and myself back. I was always impressed with the process that she uses to arrive at a remedy. Her ability to listen carefully and intuitively makes her a very effective healer. Her kindness and Love create a space for the healing to evolve.

For over 50 years, I have been sick with headaches, recurrent sinus infections, strep throat, bronchitis and pneumonia. During that time, I was treated by many types of doctors. Allergy injections failed to relieve my symptoms. Ear, nose, throat and internal medicine gave me temporary relief with antibiotics but were unable to prevent the infections from recurring. Subsequently, my health gradually declined. In desperation, I tried alternative medicine. This was helpful but did not change my life. Three and a half years ago, Mercedes came to my house as I was too sick to travel to her office. I had become so allergic I had to sit on the other side of the room while she interviewed me. For years, I had not been able to watch TV, talk on the phone or use a hair dryer, and a great deal more.
I have never had such an extensive interview. She went from birth to the present day. On the next visit, she returned with a remedy. That day my health began to improve. In a month I was able to go to her office. I finally found someone who would help me.
I feel she takes a personal interest in me and works hard to improve my health. Mercedes encourages me to call often if I am having a problem or have a question. She is patient, understanding, creative and pleasant.
My health has improved to the point that I can drive independently. I am 77 years old. For the past 20 years, I only left the house to go to the doctor’s or to the hospital. Now, I am able to spend more time with my grandchildren and visit friends.
I am grateful to Mercedes for all she has done for me. No matter how sick you are, don’t give up. Mercedes will help you.
