Hi ! My name is Dr. Alva Irish, also known as Nine Crows.
I am part Cherokee, Chickasaw and Shoshone. My Aunt Colleen gave me the name Nine Crows, as my Clan People name.
That was because when I was born, Nine Crows were outside the Hospital Window making all kinds of Racket and followed my
Mother home from the hospital. They have been with me ever since.
I was born in Liberty, Texas, the heart of Petroleum country.
Liberty is the home of the Liberty Oil fields, which leak Natural gas fumes into the open air, 24 hours a day.
So many people around Liberty were constantly ill from it, I became interested in Health at a very early age, and have been using
and studying Homeopathics since I was 13.
In 1982 I met and married Joe Baumgartner, a Photographer for N.A.S.A., and one of the most famous fashion photographers in New
After moving in l996 to our Dairy Goat Farm in the Midwest, My husband Joe and I were poisoned with Carbon monoxide by a faulty Heater.
Because of the damage to our bodies caused by the odorless gas, we were given the edict, "Get your affairs in order!".
I was also Diagnosed with Erythropoetic Protoporphyria (EPP) , Diabetes and Angeoedema, the poisoning triggered to active Genetic Diseases I didn't know I even had. The
EPP, which causes an extreme sensitivity to light and chemicals was triggered into action by the Stress from the poisoning.
I was told bluntly, that I was going to die, that I could never take antibiotics, or any medicines of any kind again, and that there was no hope, no cure for my
condition. This was because the Porphyrias affected my Liver, and almost all antibiotics and medicines are excreted through that crucial Organ.
Well, I thought otherwise. I had to hurry to get the education I needed to Heal myself and my family, and I had no time!!!
Having already spent years on my education, but seeing no need to hurry to finish the Credits needed to get my Degrees before all this happened, I quickly went
to work and finished my Education through the Clayton College of Natural Health, The American Institute of Holistic Theology, and the British Institute of
Homeopathy, finishing the credits and earning my Phd, DHM, DN, and DD, even though I was very ill.
From the British Institute of Homeopathy, in addition to finishing my education there, I went on to win the coveted Silver medal for making the Highest Honors in Scholastics. They awarded me the title to use of FBIH.
I made a promise to Spirit that if I did in fact survive, in return, I would do everything I could to find Treatments and Cures for so-called Incurable and Genetic
diseases using Alternative means, in order to help others in the same situation as I now found myself.
So I set up a 501(c)(3) tax exempt Foundation dedicated to finding Cures and Treatments for Incurable and Genetic Diseases using Alternative methodology only.
It is called "Center for Mankind Foundation, Inc" and is located in Fountain Inn, South Carolina. (South Carolina Tax exemption #6743 Fed 501(C)(3)Pend. )
The Foundation accepts Grants, Gifts, and Bequeaths
I chose to specialize in Homeopathy because Homeopathics
are not excreted by the liver, so they were completely safe for
me and Joe to take. I polished my skill in using them so
that I latenized all of my and my husband's symptoms, spurring
Social Security into sending me a letter telling me, "Your
Health has Improved" and removing me from the disabled list!
This to a person with an incurable Genetic condition!
I now maintain an active On-Line Homeopathic / Naturopathic Practice in South Carolina, and do Long Distance Homeopathic Research, without the need of
prospective clients having to travel all the way to my office for an appointment.
I do the online treatments because when I was so ill, it was an extreme effort even to go to the grocery store, much less travel a long distance to go see a
And if I DID go, all I would do is sit in their office, give them the samples they requested and answer questions about my symptoms.
Then I would be sent home, only to come back after the practitioner did all the research on their time.
My visit back would cumulate in them giving me a prescription which I had to fill myself.
Why? I thought??? Why did I have to go OUT to see some one, as sick as I was???
I wished there was someone that would just do everything I needed on-line, someone to whom I could just send my samples and symptoms to that would evaluate everything and stay with me so I could heal.
There was no one at all.
When I made myself better, I decided to give that kind of service to everyone else so they would be able to have Homeopathic and Naturopathic care without
having to leave the comfort of their own home.
IN my On-line practice I receive the samples and waivers thru the mail and set up a time to do the Rubric interview over the telephone. I then email the results
back to the client and the work up is done. I stay with my clients until they are better, doing follow up checks, and rechecks until they are balanced.
I also have an agreement, which can be paid in one lump sum that would make me your family practitioner for life, with as many questions and rechecks that you
want. Ask me about it!
I am currently doing Research for the Porph-Alternatives Group, finding Homeopathic treatments to alleviate the pain and suffering of others with Porphyria, and
am also working with Project Hope, with their Autistic Children, and a group Dedicated to helping those with Hepatitis and other Liver Diseases..
I have made myself available to talk with you any time and work seven days a week. Consultations are by appointment. I am a Premier Expert in Homeopathy at allexperts.com and was nominated as Volunteer of the Month for May 2001, by Allexperts.com for doing the Best Job as a Homeopathic Expert.
I have been asked why I do this?
You want to know why?
Because I LOVE it!
I love to hear my clients tell me how much better they feel, and I love it when I see how they become happy and healthy again because of my help.
My husband Joseph Baumgartner and I were in an auto accident in 1998. He went thru the windshield and got Parkinsons disease from the blow, Like Mohammad
Ali, and I broke the end of my spine completely off and twisted my L5 inward.
In 2006 Joe died a terrible death from being starved of water at a nursing home in Hendersonville, NC. He had a heart attack and left us.
In 2007 I met and married Bart Arrowood, a Cherokee Indian Painter. He fully supports my practice and treats me like a queen.
