Why Homoeopathy?

The modern world has pushed for control over science, societal parameters and medicine. It would be fair to say the world we live in is not a just one. The state of the majority of mankinds mental and physical health is not in harmony due to the pressures, chasing financial security, trying to seek independence from governmental rules and medical impositions. Most countries suffer an increase in diseases and a lessing of immunity to them, perhaps due to imposed medical treatments from the past.

samuel-hahnemann-1

From a homoeopathic point of view, cure from disease occurs when the immune system is aided to cure problems by the correct remedy/medicine that works with it rather than suppressing symptoms.

§ 11 Sixth Edition
When a person falls ill, it is only this spiritual, self acting (automatic) vital force, everywhere present in his organism, that is primarily deranged by the dynamic influence upon it of a morbific agent inimical to life; it is only the vital force, deranged to such an abnormal state, that can furnish the organism with its disagreeable sensations, and incline it to the irregular processes which we call disease; for, as a power invisible in itself, and only cognizable by its effects on the organism, its morbid derangement only makes itself known by the manifestation of disease in the sensations and functions of those parts of the organism exposed to the senses of the observer and physician, that is, by morbid symptoms, and in no other way can it make itself known.

***********************************************************************

§ 17 Sixth Edition
Now, as in the cure effected by the removal of the whole of the perceptible signs and symptoms of the disease the internal alteration of the vital principle to which the disease is due – consequently the whole of the disease – is at the same time removed,1 it follows that the physician has only to remove the whole of the symptoms in order, at the same time, to abrogate and annihilate the internal change, that is to say, the morbid derangement of the vital force – consequently the totality of the disease, the disease itself.2  But when the disease is annihilated the health is restored, and this is the highest, the sole aim of the physician who knows the true object of his mission, which consists not in learned – sounding prating, but in giving aid to the sick.

§ 19
Now, as diseases are nothing more than alterations in the state of health of the healthy individual which express themselves by morbid signs, and the cure is also only possible by a change to the healthy condition of the state of health of the diseased individual, it is very evident that medicines could never cure disease if they did not possess the power of altering man’s state of health which depends on sensations and functions; indeed, that their curative power must be owing solely to this power they possess of altering man’s state of health.

So these are the things a homoeopath should be working towards……………. to find the most similar remedy to facilitate a curative change within the sick person.

§ 153 Sixth Edition
In this search for a homoeopathic specific remedy, that is to say, in this comparison of the collective symptoms of the natural disease with the list of symptoms of known medicines, in order to find among these an artificial morbific agent corresponding by similarity to the disease to be cured, the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar (characteristic) signs and symptoms1 of the case of disease are chiefly and most solely to be kept in view; for it is more particularly these that very similar ones in the list of symptoms of the selected medicine must correspond to, in order to constitute it the most suitable for effecting the cure. The more general and undefined symptoms: loss of appetite, headache, debility, restless sleep, discomfort, and so forth, demand but little attention when of that vague and indefinite character, if they cannot be more accurately described, as symptoms of such a general nature are observed in almost every disease and from almost every drug.

Hahnemann taught how. The IHM continually promotes the working methodology.

Why Hahnemann?

For most people practising homoeopathy, the influence on their case taking and analysis is Kentian. If like me, back in the 80s,a yearly review of my patients showed less than a 45% cure rate which motivated me to return to the writings of Hahnemann and evaluate where I was going wrong.

What I learned-Kent was not a Hahnemannian.

https://instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.org/2019/08/13/the-problem-with-jt-kent-and-homoeopathy/

I then spent the next two years ‘unlearning Kent and re-establishing the correct case taking and evaluation techniques as defined by Hahnemann. My clinical cure rate went up to 80% as I applied Hahnemann’s methodology. Persons who attend the 4-day training for inclusion on the IHM Register also have high rates of success with utilising Hahnemann’s methodology and using the Therapeutic Pocket Book in daily practice.

Homoeopathy is a very forgiving therapy. A remedy that produces similar symptoms to the patient, will generally kick a curative response. However, when a patient requires a remedy to tackle the central disease state, aphorism 153 is the answer.

§ 153 Sixth Edition
In this search for a homoeopathic specific remedy, that is to say, in this comparison of the collective symptoms of the natural disease with the list of symptoms of known medicines, in order to find among these an artificial morbific agent corresponding by similarity to the disease to be cured, the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar (characteristic) signs and symptoms1 of the case of the disease are chiefly and most solely to be kept in view; for it is more particularly these that very similar ones in the list of symptoms of the selected medicine must correspond to, in order to constitute it the most suitable for effecting the cure. The more general and undefined symptoms: loss of appetite, headache, debility, restless sleep, discomfort, and so forth, demand but little attention when of that vague and indefinite character, if they cannot be more accurately described, as symptoms of such a general nature are observed in almost every disease and from almost every drug.

For a homoeopath, it is vital that they understand the meaning of the aphorism above. It is the cornerstone of finding the KEY symptoms for prescribing and matching with a correct remedy.

Kent, ignoring Hahnemann, emphasised the mental symptoms as the key. Nowhere does Hahnemann express the thought that the mind is the primary consideration, EXCEPT in mental diseases. Aph 210-220. He did say an altered disposition is always considered………..but it would have to be in line with aphorism 153 to be useful.

We teach how to isolate the prescribing symptoms to find the expression disease as per all the instruction and clues given by Hahnemann and Boenninghausen.

Once a practitioner is on the right track, everyone benefits.

 

We done did it.

The IHM has had the offer for purchase accepted. Now we have lawyers and agents acting on our behalf.

IHM Project in the UK 2019/20

In collaboration with our affiliate organisations, colleagues and patients, the I.H.M. has decided to open a dedicated teaching/seminar centre and mobile clinic on the inland waterways of the United Kingdom. We are looking to purchase a 50-60 foot narrowboat and fit it out for teaching and a clinic.

Given the cost of office rental in the UK, this vessel will be considerably cheaper to operate and the savings can be passed on to seminar pricing and patients fees.

The IHM is the producer of the P&W Openrep Synopsis Therapeutic Pocket Book by Boenninghausen computer repertory software and the Book version. tpbpwIt is envisioned that we will conduct one-day seminars on case taking utilising the repertory and show the benefits of the program in the analysis. We prefer to keep the numbers of attendees small so as facilitate personal teaching, so the maximum attendees will be 8-12 persons.

We will have facilities for refreshments, snacks and lunch if required.

This vessel will be available for rent to non-mainstream medical practices for half-day, full day and 2-day seminars.

Given the present attitude from the government towards alternative medical practices, we see this as a viable project to let the general public have access to professional alternative health care.

We do need some help in making this come to life. We need some financial support to add to our own contributions. We will look to a funding operation and will set a goal of 50K but will go ahead if we can finance more cheaply. We will have to pay for some interior changes, add more 12 volt and mains power to plug in laptops etc. It may require some solar power and a large 3KW inverter. There will, of course, be some thank you rewards for supporters.

We plan on setting the routes geographically. For example London to Bristol. Reading to Birmingham, Birmingham to Liverpool, or Manchester, or Wigan and all points in the zone where groups want to meet. As canals go through cities and are located near rail lines, we can more or less pick convenient locations for mooring and conducting the seminars. We can moor outside restaurants if preferred.

Most of our staff are medically qualified. All have undergone intensive training with the I.H.M. in Hahnemannian homoeopathy. If we get the vessel as we want it, (and ONLY for individuals or 2 persons), we hope to accommodate those attending the IHM 4 day training course for application for the REGISTER. 

Below is a vessel we looked at and let go because it did not quite meet our specifications for having extra people on board.

We will let you know when we open a fund us account. In the meantime please feel free to give us your opinion if this project something you would be interested in using to learn from.

 

August teaching days…

In Seville Spain, August is traditionally the month for vacations due to the heat. We usually close the clinic due to little or no patient activity.

We in the clinic, also take the time for vacations, but for whatever reason, I have been here for August the last 5 years.

So Ive been thinking about the price for the teaching, and as our aim is to teach, and I love the interaction, the following decision has been reached.

We will include the SYNOPSIS computer repertory program, (retail $799) in the 4 day teaching module. (Windows only) If you have the program, we will drop the 4 day teaching price to €800. The program has 17 repertories, with the Therapeutic pocket book in Polish, Spanish, Hebrew, Italian and English.

Now that is a good deal.

It will be a concentrated study of examining case taking and evaluation of symptoms collected in aphorism § 6 Sixth Edition:

The unprejudiced observer – well aware of the futility of transcendental speculations which can receive no confirmation from experience – be his powers of penetration ever so great, takes note of nothing in every individual disease, except the changes in the health of the body and of the mind (morbid phenomena, accidents, symptoms) which can be perceived externally by means of the senses; that is to say, he notices only the deviations from the former healthy state of the now diseased individual, which are felt by the patient himself, remarked by those around him and observed by the physician. All these perceptible signs represent the disease in its whole extent, that is, together they form the true and only conceivable portrait of the disease. 

Many practitioners prescribe on the totality of these symptoms and fail to apply aphorism § 153 Sixth Edition:

In this search for a homoeopathic specific remedy, that is to say, in this comparison of the collective symptoms of the natural disease with the list of symptoms of known medicines, in order to find among these an artificial morbific agent corresponding by similarity to the disease to be cured, the more striking, singular, uncommon and peculiar (characteristic) signs and symptoms of the case of disease are chiefly and most solely to be kept in view; for it is  more particularly these that very similar ones in the list of symptoms of the selected medicine must correspond to, in order to constitute it the most suitable for effecting the cure. The more general and undefined symptoms: loss of appetite, headache, debility, restless sleep, discomfort, and so forth, demand but little attention when of that vague and indefinite character, if they cannot be more accurately described, as symptoms of such a general nature are observed in almost every disease and from almost every drug.

We can see from 153 that reflection and finding the nucleus of the complete disease picture is required. The question is where and how?

So for this seminar, complete in itself, we will examine EXACTLY where to look for prescribing symptoms among the collected symptoms during case taking.

There are a number of different evaluation steps to obtain a correct homoeopathic prescribing symptom, and once found, gives surety of being a characteristic symptom of both the disease and the remedy. We will demonstrate this via a lot of cases and explanations. 

We will also show how to take cases via live presentations.

We will offer the SYNOPSIS software (Windows or MAC utilising Parallels discounted heavily from $799 to $499 for attendees)

The IHM is well known as a research and education body and has conducted seminars for over 27 years.

This seminar will give the chance for Thai Homoeopaths to be evaluated for inclusion in the I.H.M. Register of approved practitioners.  Each practitioner on the list has been taught by an I.H.M. official via training in our head office in Spain or by evaluation of their abilities

We have the First Thai practitioner to go on the Register. She has attended several seminars and has shown us her adherence to Hahnemannian principles. Her name will be added to the list in due course.

ccess to the resources of the I.H.M. for information and patient advice at all times.

The I.H.M. are the developers of the SYNOPSIS homoeopathic repertory program with the inclusion of the Therapeutic Pocket Book updated and revised 1846 edition of Boenninghausens work.  In practice, This has proved to be the most reliable indicator for the most suitable medicine. It took Vladimir Polony and Gary Weaver several years to compile and update.

I.H.M. training courses 2018

The IHM will continue its popular 4 day training Seminars during June, July, August and October in Seville Spain. Dates are filling.

Languages: English and Spanish. (Check for Spanish availability dates.)

We tailor the course to the abilities of the student. Let us know your level of training and understanding. We will assess ourselves on the first day and adjust accordingly.

Our teaching is based solely on the writing and directives of Hahnemann culled from research of the IHM since 1986.

Main course tutor is Gary Weaver. D.O, Dhom med. Also  Manuel Guitierrez M.D., Antonio Gil Ortega. M.D. and Vera Resnick Dhom Med.

Course content:

  • The rationale of homoeopathic medicine.
  • The examination of the patient according to defined parameters of eliciting prescribing symptoms without the filter of Swedenborgian philosophy via Kent and all the variants of non Hahnemann practices as defined and taught by teachers today.
  • An in depth look at the Miasm theory in the light of infection and infectious disease models that are the accepted protocols in modern medicine.
  • Patient management utilising Hahnemannian directives for medicine administration and potency choice, frequency of dose, withdrawal of repetition of medicine on well indicated grounds, observation of medicinal action and when to change the medicine.
  • Use of LM or Q potencies.
  • Chronic and acute prescribing and when to finish prescribing.
  • In depth explanation and use of the Therapeutic Pocket Book. The T.P.B. was devised by Boenninghausen as a synthetic approach approximating Hahnemanns thoughts on case analysis so as to find a close similimum by extracting the correct proving symptoms that match the disease state.
  • A rubric by rubric explanation of meaning, so as to choose the right rubric in every case.
  • Lots of case examples and analysis by I.H.M. staff.
  • Tutor help in re examining some of the students intractable cases.
  1. The cost of the course is 1000 Euros payable in cash on the first day of attendance. If 2 or more participants attend together, we give a discount per person. Maximum participants per course is 6. Requirements: SYNOPSIS program. (For students will be €460  instead of €681) We like to keep  the numbers small so as to maximise attention on the individual.
  2. Our course runs Thursday to Sunday.
  3. We supply beverages and snacks during the day.

We can give advice regarding accommodation locally that places the student on a direct bus route to the clinic, and is also well placed for exploring the beautiful city of Seville.

Contact Gary directly at gary@garyweaver.org to book or ask questions.
