Thoughts……

I was in the company of a homoepathic colleague several years ago. He expressed the wish that all allopathic surgeries were taken over by homoeopaths.

Sadly, I could not agree with him. This cannot and SHOULD not happen. The truth is that a lot, if not the majority of homoeopaths are not sufficiently trained to practice and prescribe quickly on Hahnemannian principles for the benefit of the patients. Also, we as a profession need to re-establish our credentials by having central training, especially for those without knowledge of anatomy and physiology, disease processes, and knowledge of current allopathic treatments for health conditions.

We at the IHM have been looking hard at the current armoury of allopathic medications, and are discussing which treatments do not suppress the living organism and are perhaps necessary on a temporary basis to prevent further issues, ie blood thinners or some heart regulators.

Whilst all of us here in the IHM are dedicated to the practice of homoeopathy, and are convinced of the efficacy of the treatments, we are also realists in this over-medicated system, and try to work with the drugs that a patient is on until the remedial action of a remedy allows the body to self regulate. It is time-consuming and sometimes 3 steps forward and 2 steps backwards, yet that is part of how we have to work with the patients’ problems.

Our profession in the west is slowly disappearing. The term “Homoeopathy” continues, along with the designation “homoeopath”, yet the real practice and application are no longer at the forefront of treatment. A patient looking for a practitioner is at a disadvantage, he or she no longer is sure of the Hahnemannian treatment. So sad. Homoeopathy is very forgiving, and for acute diseases. a remedy given that is close to the symptoms of the disease will trigger an immune response that will be curative. For deeper problems, an understanding of Hahnemann’s research is required.

The IHM teaches Hahnemannian homoeopathy, and each of the members of the Register practices in the manner described and taught by Hahnemann. Although we can’t help everybody, we can be assured that the methodology employed in treatment offers the best chance of success.

The IHM has moved to online teaching and will begin the second intake of students shortly. We will give details as soon as we can.

What we teach.

We give all the Hahnemannian directives and principles through case taking and case analysis. We cover the Organon pointers in each step that is taken during the process to ensure finding the best medicine. A few steps are required to be made before utilising aphorism 153 as the final arbiter.

How we can help your clinic to grow with our online seminars.

The rationale for success in Homoeopathy.

After 10 years in homoeopathic practice, I realised (and accepted) that my ability to help the majority of patients using homoeopathy was impaired. In facing this truth, accompanied by clinic statistics, I looked for where the problem lay. My choices were:

  • I was not a good homoeopath.
  • Homoeopathy did not work.
  • My approach and understanding of the application of the therapy were wrong.

I stopped practice for a while and conducted intense research through the pages of Hahnemann, Kent, Boenninghausen, and a lot of other contemporary writers of the time.

What became obvious was that The Swedenborg school (Kent et al) did not practice according to Hahnemann’s directions. Given that the Swedenborg approach has taken over the teaching curriculums of Homoeopathic Institutions, (and was the approach I used,) it became imperative to ascertain the differences from Hahnemann and see if this was the problem.

Kent places emphasis on the spiritual and mental symptoms a patient expresses. My research has shown there is a general but accurate approach to case taking, which is not limited to any single aspect of a patient. I will briefly explain this here. We will teach the full methodology in our online seminars.

Now after 36 years in practice, I have 26 years of practice in the Hahnemannian tradition with an average of 72% first prescription accuracy, and 81% cure rate.

Firstly, the following is a breakdown of what a practitioner needs to know.

Visual signs

  • Find the limits of the importance of the signs,
  • the ability to deconstruct signs, to break them into important aspects.
  • the ability to reconstruct signs in a totality
  • The use of Repertory and the symptom codes as found in remedies.

Seeing a visual expression of the disease symptom in question, the evidence of the expression is right in front of us. We must remember that one symptom must be in harmony with and be related by the existence of other signs and symptoms to produce a coherent whole to individualise a remedy choice.

There are at least 10 examples of ‘relationships’  Here are three.

How do we find a ‘totality’? Its an evaluation of each symptom involving visual signs.

  • One is several signs appearing in a localised area, which when examined complete an indication for a complete sign as in location sensation and modality. It is the peculiarity of this complex sign that makes it worthy of homoeopathic attention.
  • Another is a relationship between symptoms appearing in different locations.
  • Relationship of visual signs and pathology.

Another 7 carefully researched pointers will be taught in our online practitioner course.

I asked myself how does one remedy express itself in different diseases?

Clinical observation presents us only indicators, signs that point to some remedies. Rubrics help to narrow the field of possible medicines, however, the truly effective and definitive method is the collective appearance of signs that are connected by grouping, time and in the disease state under scrutiny.

Case example: (Gheorghe Jurj)

snake arm

The elements associated with this configuration are:

  • 1) large boils;
  • 2) swelling;
  • 3) ecchymosis;
  • 4) cyanosis;
  • 5) lymphatic affection. The cause of this picture is a toxic substance which produces:  1) micro thrombosis with 2) laceration of the superficial layer of the skin, which thus is detached forming boils;  3)  Lack of coagulation;  4)  disturbance in the microcirculation,  predominantly venous  (cyanosis); and 5) oedema. It can be a disease, as e.g. bullous pemphigo, it, it can be an intoxication. It is a snake bite. From the homoeopathic clinical viewpoint, this is extremely relevant:  a  similar grouping in a patient points to a snake-derived remedy,  e.g. Lachesis, as in the following cases.

Case To show grouping of Symptoms to use with repertory.

snake2

Patient consults with severe congestive heart failure; is in very poor general state, with dyspnea and very irritable. He had spent the last three weeks hospitalized, but there was no improvement; on auscultation he presented signs of chronic pulmonary edema and he also had ulcers in the legs.

snake3

Clinical picture was composed of characteristic signs of the disease (cyanosis, peripheral edema) as well as of signs of this individual-in-disease: deep blue discoloration of the distal extreme of the lower limbs with congestion in the proximal one and ulcers. His face presented similar signs : overall congestion and infiltration, deep-blue cyanosis (lips, nose, ears) and venectasis on the cheeks.

snake4

However, a closer look on the lips showed, in fact, an alternation between congestive and cyanotic areas, the same pattern as in the lower limbs.

Venectasis also on the back, which is an extremely rare localization for this phenomenon, therefore, a peculiar sign.

snake5

snake6The tongue was bifid, deviated to the left side, exhibited dramatic cyanosis and a toxic white coating. A closer look on the ulcers showed once again an alternation of red congestive and blue cyanotic small areas as well as a humid secretion. A coherent configuration leads to individualization: in each localization and lesion the same phenomena are present: alternation of congestion and cyanosis in small areas; toxic appearance; infiltration and swelling; ecchymosis (disturb of coagulation); microthrombosis and venous stasis. Prescription of Lachesis in low dilution (9cH) led to improvement of circulation, visible and also through auscultation, with reduction of pulmonary edema; improvement of dyspnea and weakness as well of the mental symptoms.

It is important to be the best practitioner you can be. The IHM does not claim to be anything else than followers of Hahnemann and adherents of his methodology. We do have a good track record of successful prescribing. We also can direct you on the right path to find success following Hahnemanns protocols.

We will welcome you to study with us either in the residential clinic or on line.

What we teach. NEW modular online course for practitioners and advanced students.

social-distancing-and-self-care-happy-woman-teleconferencing-from-picture-id1225070980This is the course that we do online in Spain, Mexico and the U.K. The outline below will show what we deem important. It is aimed at the existing practitioner. By the quality of the practitioners results, I think  it demonstrates the very real benefits of Organon training, that makes homoeopathy a cohesive medical therapy if practiced according to principle and surety.

For those wanting to be practitioners, this method of training that was developed over 25 years is the most intensive, yet practical and EASY way to being a rounded practitioner.

The Advanced Professional Training Course will be in virtual classroom (online) in a modular arrangementFocused african businessman in headphones writing notes watching webinar of 3 hours a module, once a week, and will be focused on people who already practice homeopathy at the moment, and who want to make a change in their approach homeopathic by accepting that the teaching given to them does not allow them the clinical success that their patients need, that is, those homeopaths who wish to perfect the methodology of their practice according to Hahnemannian directives. (see also our 4 day course held in our HQ.)

There will be a total of 8 online sessions.

  • The following will be included in modules.
  • History of the repertory,
  • Development of homoeopathy.
  • Benefits of using the Homoeopathic model.
  • Homoeopathy and allopathy
  • Taking the Case.
  • Repertorization.
  • Prescription.
  • Case Follow-up.
  • Pure Materia Medica.
  • How to study a remedy to understand it.
  • Chronic Diseases; Hahnemanns conception of Miasms and what it means today.
  • Why Schusslers tissue salts and Bach or any flower essences are NOT homoeopathy.

There will be numerous case examples to demonstrate the subjects discussed. We will use a lot of powerpoint material to develop understanding of each salient point.

Completion of all the modules and homework, is a requirement of request to join the Register of the I.H.M. This will enable a licentiateship to be issued and publication of your clinic details.

  1. Each of the 8 modules at 3 hours a session,
  2. £125 a module.
  3. Prepaying the entire course will trigger a discount of 15% making the total cost £850.

Where is homoeopathy in the 21st century?

I think the answer to this lies both in the history of the therapy and in the understanding of why it came into being at its inception.

allopathyModern medicine as defined, uses its pharmacy to treat disease by suppression or divergence of the expression of disease as exhibited by the patient. For example, a headache is treated by blocking the pain with pain relief medicine without treating the actual problem. Skin problems are treated with suppressive ointments or cortizone etc.

Hahnemann in his studies accepted that working with the patients immune system, and applying medicines that could produce matching symptoms, allowed a guide for the immune response to ‘focus’ on the disease expression, and cure itself.

This fundamental difference in approach, irrespective of the therapy of homoeopathy, is a law of nature and can be applied in a myriad ways. Homoeopathy as practiced the Hahnemannian way is a method to match accurately substances that can produce the symptoms of the disease and thus be applied curatively.

I have a firm grasp on the law of similars as being the method to cure disease. It is at odds with mainstream medicine in the West and as such those of us who feel the same are ridiculed and ostracised.

So for a person wanting to practice homoepathy, there is a need to be convinced that it is the bodys immune system that cures and nothing else.

§ 10 Sixth Edition
The material organism, without the vital force, is capable of no sensation, no function, no self-preservation 1, it derives all sensation and performs all the functions of life solely by means of the immaterial being (the vital principle) which animates the material organism in health and in disease.

§ 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 1 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. 2
1 Materia peccans!
2  What is dynamic influence, – dynamic power? Our earth, by virtue of a hidden invisible energy, carries the moon around her in twenty-eight days and several hours, and the moon alternately, in definite fixed hours (deducting certain differences which occur with the full and new moon) raises our northern seas to flood tide and again correspondingly lowers them to ebb. Apparently this takes place not through material agencies, not through mechanical contrivances, as are used for products of human labor; and so we see numerous other events about us as results of the action of one substance on another substance without being able to recognize a sensible connection between cause and effect. Only the cultured, practised in comparison and deduction, can form for himself a kind of supra-sensual idea sufficient to keep all that is material or mechanical in his thoughts from such concepts. He calls such effects dynamic, virtual, that is, such as result from absolute, specific, pure energy and action of he one substance upon the other substance.
For instance, the dynamic effect of the sick-making influences upon healthy man, as well as the dynamic energy of the medicines upon the principle of life in the restoration of health is nothing else than infection and so not in any way material, not in any way mechanical. Just as the energy of a magnet attracting a piece of iron or steel is not material, not mechanical. One sees that the piece of iron is attracted by one pole of the magnet, but how it is done is not seen. This invisible energy of the magnet does not require mechanical (material) auxiliary means, hook or lever, to attract the iron. The magnet draws to itself and this acts upon the piece of iron or upon a steel needle by means of a purely immaterial invisible, conceptual, inherent energy, that is, dynamically, and communicates to the steel needle the magnetic energy equally invisibly (dynamically). The steel needle becomes itself magnetic, even at a distance when the magnet does not touch it, and magnetises other steel needles with the same magnetic property (dynamically) with which it had been endowered previously by the magnetic rod, just as a child with small-pox or measles communicates to a near, untouched healthy child in an invisible manner (dynamically) the small-pox or measles, that is, infects it at a distance without anything material from the infective child going or capable of going to the one to be infected. A purely specific conceptual influence communicated to the near child small-pox or measles in the same way as the magnet communicated to the near needle the magnetic property.
In a similar way, the effect of medicines upon living man is to be judged. Substances, which are used as medicines, are medicines only in so far as they possess each its own specific energy to alter the well-being of man through dynamic, conceptual influence, by means of the living sensory fibre, upon the conceptual controlling principle of life. The medicinal property of those material substances which we call medicines proper, relates only to their energy to call out alterations in the well-being of animal life. Only upon this conceptual principle of life, depends their medicinal health-altering, conceptual (dynamic) influence. Just as the nearness of a magnetic pole can communicate only magnetic energy to the steel (namely, by a kind of infection) but cannot communicate other properties (for instance, more hardness or ductility, etc.). And thus every special medicinal substance alters through a kind of infection, that well-being of man in a peculiar manner exclusively its own and not in a manner peculiar to another medicine, as certainly as the nearness of the child ill with small-pox will communicate to a healthy child only small-pox and not measles. These medicines act upon our well-being wholly without communication of material parts of the medicinal substances, thus dynamically, as if through infection. Far more healing energy is expressed in a case in point by the smallest dose of the best dynamized medicines, in which there can be, according to calculation, only so little of material substance that its minuteness cannot be thought and conceived by the best arithmetical mind, than by large doses of the same medicine in substance. That smallest dose can therefore contain almost entirely only the pure, freely-developed, conceptual medicinal energy, and bring about only dynamically such great effects as can never be reached by the crude medicinal substances itself taken in large doses.
It is not in the corporal atoms of these highly dynamized medicines, nor their physical or mathematical surfaces (with which the higher energies of the dynamized medicines are being interpreted but vainly as still sufficiently material) that the medicinal energy is found. More likely, there lies invisible in the moistened globule or in its solution, an unveiled, liberated, specific, medicinal force contained in the medicinal substance which acts dynamically by contact with the living animal fibre upon the whole organism (without communicating to it anything material however highly attenuated) and acts more strongly the more free and more immaterial the energy has become through the dynamization.
Is it then so utterly impossible for our age celebrated for its wealth in clear thinkers to think of dynamic energy as something non-corporeal, since we see daily phenomena which cannot be explained in any other manner? If one looks upon something nauseous and becomes inclined to vomit, did a material emetic come into his stomach which compels him to this anti-peristaltic movement? Was it not solely the dynamic effect of the nauseating aspect upon his imagination? And if one raises his arm, does it occur through a material visible instrument? a lever? Is it not solely the conceptual dynamic energy of his will which raises it?

§ 12 Sixth Edition
It is the morbidly affected vital energy alone that produces disease1, so that the morbid phenomena perceptible to our senses express at the same time all the internal change, that is to say, the whole morbid derangement of the internal dynamis; in a word, they reveal the whole disease; consequently, also, the disappearance under treatment of all the morbid phenomena and of all the morbid alterations that differ from the healthy vital operations, certainly affects and necessarily implies the restoration of the integrity of the vital force and, therefore, the recovered health of the whole organism.
1 How the vital force causes the organism to display morbid phenomena, that is, how it produces disease, it would be of no practical utility to the physician to know, and will forever remain concealed from him; only what it is necessary for him to know of the disease and what is fully sufficient for enabling him to cure it, has the Lord of life revealed to his senses.
§ 13
Therefore disease (that does not come within the province of manual surgery) considered, as it is by the allopathists, as a thing separate from the living whole, from the organism and its animating vital force, and hidden in the interior, be it ever so subtle a character, is an absurdity, that could only be imagined by minds of a materialistic stamp, and has for thousands of years given to the prevailing system of medicine all those pernicious impulses that have made it a truly mischievous [non-healing] art.
§ 14
There is, in the interior of man, nothing morbid that is curable and no invisible morbid alteration that is curable which does not make itself known to the accurately observing physicians by means of morbid signs and symptoms – an arrangement in perfect conformity with the infinite goodness of the all-wise Preserver of human life.  

Contained within the words of Hahnemann above, is the rationale for curative action by the law of similars.

Homoeopathy as a therapy, is not a touchy feely ‘alternative’ support to allopathy. It is a self contained medical practice that utililises a proven method of eliciting a curative response from a living organism be it human or animal. Where the organism is CAPABLE of responding and repairing itself, the effects are wonderful and almost miraculous to observe. If the organism is not capable of repair, sometimes we have to let allopathy take the lead in life preservation.

One of the major stumbling blocks to homoeopathy being accepted, is the scoffing maintained toward the dilutions. However science is slowly proving the power of water to absorb the effects.

The other and far more harmful issue within our therapy, is that a large number of practitioners have not learned real homoeopathy from Hahnemann. As such, individuals who are feted as good homoeopaths are misleading with their lack of knowledge and charisma, and not with accurate directives from Hahnemann.

So, if you are a practitioner, examine what you believe and practice by comparing it with the Organon. You will be surprised……………

The members of the IHM individually and collectively hold to the tenets of Hahnemannian practice and work in accordance to his directives. One of the noted features of our training courses, is that all aspects of the course are based around comprehension of the medical works of Hahnemann and Boenninghausen, usually each aphorism is backed up or explained by other texts so as to facilitate a clear understanding of the sublect under consideration. We teach the relevance of the written directives via cases to demonstrate WHY it has to be a certain way.

For new students of homoeopathy, we ground the individual from day one in understanding the methodology and the rationale, and teach them how to view a case through Hahnemanns perspective. While we encourage experimentation, we have found that going against Hahnemanns tested and tried recommendations, always fails. We do not allow polypharmacy or the use of non homoeopathic treatments like the flower remedies.

A number of use use the LM potencies and can give pointers as to how to use them. I myself have used them more or less exclusively since 1987.

We will announce seminar dates to be held in our Eastbourne East Sussex HQ covering case taking, Materia medica understanding, Rubric understanding of the Therapeutic Pocket book etc. This is dependant on the UK government laws regarding numbers and rules for indoor teaching.

More to come.

How the Eastbourne IHM HQ will operate.

We are intending to take patients with problems as paying guests in the B&B and monitor them for the period of time they elect to stay with us. A daily observation/case review will take place.

I would like 2 or more practitioners to be present at the initial intake, and share in the discussion afterwards to choose a remedy and treatment protocol. Should a practitioner require to stay overnight, if we have space, we can offer accomodation at reduced rates. We are surrounded by restaurants and delivery services, or if a few colleagues are staying, our kitchens can produce an evening meal.

p1060363I have not got around to sorting fees, either from us or to us from patients and practitioners. That will come later.

I have all the remedies required made in our own pharmacy from Spain. I mainly use LM potencies. These will be available for use.

If an approved practitioner would like to use the premises for their own practice, we can discuss.

For overseas practitioners coming for the 4 day application for joining the IHM Register, we will include up 4 nights free accomodation  (breakfast included) subject to space and eligibility. This is not part of the training fee so please treat as a gift and not a right.

These are a few of the complications that we have treated successfully.

Training Seminars.

The I.H.M will continue with its specialist 2 day training Seminars for advanced students and practitioners.

Pre Covid, these seminars were conducted in Spain, Bangkok, Hong Kong, USA and Europe. The seminars arose out of the request from practitoners to give aid in cases that were not resolving. I found it easier to show the methodology according to Hahnemanns directions rather than solve one case for them.

Seminar #1. Case taking. Certificate course.

1/. Examine the protocol for extracting the symptoms of the disease the patients are suffering from.

2., Observe the picture of the disease and isolate the strange rare and peculiar.

3/. Find the closest remedy with the same symptoms that has the disease picture in it.

4/. Read the remedy in the correct manner to ascertain if the pace and pitch of the disease fits the remedy with no opposing symtoms to negate the prescription.

5/. View and analyse several cases on video and powerpoint to comprehend Hahnemanns methodology.

6/ We will use the Therapeutic Pocket Book by Boenninghausen as our repertory of choice.

We will present this course for a minimum of 6 practitioners (maximum of 12) to facilitate interaction and personal guidance as required.

working lunchThe course will be conducted at the I.H,M. clinic and centre in Eastbourne after June on completion of the purchase of the property. The dining room will seat 20 comfortably and have full catering and refreshment and electric point for computers.

The book version of the repertory by Polony and Weaver is available at attendee discount, as is the computer repertory.

The progress for the IHM as of March 2021

We are providing an online course in Spanish through the Mexican I.H.M. facility.

https://instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.org/2021/03/06/our-online-course-in-mexico/

In the UK, we are concentrating on practitioner training in-house, to ensure total absorption of the material presented and to be sure the individual has a firm grasp on the process of case taking and what to concentrate on for rubric and remedy selection.

We aim to provide a centre for practitioners who wish to learn Hahnemannian homoeopathy via one and two-day seminars, mentoring programs, live patient assessments, study nights and guest speakers. To facilitate this, we are in the process of purchasing a commercial guest house in Eastbourne for in-stay patients and clinic. We concentrate in the main on using the Therapeutic Pocketbook as an accurate repertory that emulates the methodology of Hahnemann.

Our breakfast room on its own will seat 10 comfortable for seminars, and with the addition of the adjoining lounge, 16 persons.

We will solely be focused on homoeopathy and the appropriate remedies and not include flower remedies or the use of.

https://instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.org/2021/01/13/are-the-bach-flower-remedies-valid-homoeopathic-treatments/

We will of course consider mechanical adjustment if required via osteopathy or chiropractic as an adjunct to the curative treatment if a joint needs realigning.

For those wishing to take the four-day course to become a member of the IHM Register, the intensive teaching will also as a bonus include 3 free nights and breakfast at the hotel. Subject to availability, extra nights can be booked for a reduced fee.

We hope to be taking possession and working on the courses from June.

 

 

 

Further thoughts on choices……..

While COVID has everyone in the UK locked down, We at the I.H.M. are taking a tentative look forward to the future. When and how are the 2 questions.

Im in conversation with my colleagues with regard to these questions, simply because I have no idea as to whether Homoeopathy as a profession still exists in the UK or whether indeed there are enough practitioners who want to improve their skills in applying Hahnemanns successful methodology in their casework.

We will outline our plans again. We are looking at purchasing a small 8 bedroom guest house hotel on the seafront of a south-west town for use as a clinic/teaching centre and in stay patient treatment facility. We have decided to not go the medical licencing route and just run it as a guest stay:

a/. with daily homoeopathic evaluation by our staff.

b/. We would like to have student homoeopaths observe and be involved in the discussions for treatment for the patients.

c/. seminars.

e/. teaching first aid to small groups.

f/. A four day in depth training for inclusion of the homoeopath on the I.H. M. Register.

We will be able to offer low cost room rentals to students during seminars and FREE for overseas students taking the IHM training for the Register.

We understand that the IHM centre will be outside of London, yet only 60/90 minutes by train or 60 minutes by car. We aimed for sunshine, fresh sea air and a cheaper locale.

I can operate the premises as a guest house, and have my clinic in it, so as to offset the ongoing bills, but much prefer to have as a teaching and patient care centre if possible.

We hope to have guest speakers from other countries to give seminars.
