Hakim Archuletta has worked within the healing arts profession for over 30 years. His interest in medicine and natural health and the study of God’s Creation began as a child. His first formal studies were in the Fine Arts which he studied in the 60’s in Berkeley where his expertise ranged from graphic arts to theater, cinema and ethnomusicology. He studied homeopathy and apprenticed with Dr. John Damonte in London in the early 70’s. He continued these studies in Berkeley apprenticing with homeopathic doctors and working with the first Homeopathic Study group there. He continued his studies in the Middle East, England and North Africa in the mid 70’s. In 1978, Hakim went to Pakistan at the invitation of Hakim Mohammad Said of the Hamdard Foundation and studied there with various Hakims (traditional Islamic doctors) supported by grants from the Bawani Trust.
