When it goes wrong.

sad-man

I’m pretty good at acutes even if I say so myself. The occasional misprescription is fixed on the following medicine. I can manage the case through to completion.

So. My better half has had a sore throat and cough these past 4 days. She still has it, only now it is worse.  Symptoms have progressed to include a right-sided earache.

I could write all the symptoms here however I genuinely feel that I’ve noted all of them and balanced them out in both aetiology, severity and expression. I did ask 2 colleagues for their opinion and they both suggested remedies I had given and or considered.

There is a sense of  frustration and disappointment in myself today. This morning I gave a Paracetamol and a remedy in liquid, and she finally fell asleep on the couch.

My view of Homoeopathy. It is the prime curative medicinal system in the world. It stimulates the immune response and aids the body to restore health. We are talking cure here. Unfortunately sometimes in the process, pain relief is NOT always the intent of the immune response. Sometimes the immune system pushes the disease process toward cure quickly, and sometimes the process means some pain. If the remedy is wrong, the pain will happen anyway.

As a homoeopathic physician, I have no philosophic objection to pain relief. With most illnesses, the remedy will help, with some others, pain is present. When severe pain is present, I sometimes will use allopathic Medicine to relieve that pain. It is specific and localised and necessary for PAIN. Not for curative reasons. Sometimes for example, if a patient has a bacterial eye infection, an antibiotic is used to kill the bacteria and a remedy will be used to treat the presenting symptoms in the individual. If the bacteria is not treated, loss of eyesight can occur. This is my practice and I mention merely to point out that allopathic medicine for pain relief, not a curative treatment, is available and if can be given without impeding homoeopathic treatment, it should not be disregarded for the patient’s welfare.

When looking at the reasons for failing to find the right remedy for her, I have to mention one observation I have in dealing with patients.

2 vaccines or more seem to inhibit a quick response from remedy treatment. I don’t have peer-reviewed clinical evidence to validate this statement, but I do have a number of patients who do not react as quickly to treatment as previously. There is no judgement made on people who have been vaccinated. External pressure and restrictions placed on an individual will sometimes mean there is no choice given to that person in order to care for their family.

So. I carry on observing and will give a remedy when I feel I have enough prescribing symptoms… A tough one.

A Question

This is to ascertain the thinking of health concerns in general. If a patient is diagnosed with cancer and has lesions or a tumour internally, is it a good idea to remove the tumour surgically and treat the patient, or is it better homoeopathically to just treat the patient without surgical involvement? This question is asked to balance the viewpoint of homoeopathic professionals on both sides of the question and not to ‘legislate’ or mandate a course of action.

Thoughts regarding our profession

Thoughts……

cute-doctor-thinking-with-hand-chin_13339-249478



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.

Not following Hahnemanns teaching of homoeopathy.

By Dr. Guillermo Zamora. M.D.,I.H.M. D.hom med (Lic)

Dr+Gsmall

At this analysis I would like to establish fundamental differences between Hahnemann´s homeopathy and the different thinking in the world.

Fundamental differences between Hahnemann and:

A. Leon Vannier
B. James Tyler Kent
C. Eilhelm Heinrich Schüssler
D. Francisco Xavier Eisayaga
E. Bernard Poitevin
F. G Vithoulkas
G. Proceso Sanchez Ortega
H. Tarsicio Escalante Plancarte
I. Hebert A. Roberts
J. N. Ghatak

I am going to start with Leon Vannier (1880-1963)

The first difference that I would like to quote is about the laws, while Hahnemann used only the law of similar. Vannier used both as a similar law as contraries, often simultaneously.
Vannier took into account the human function, temperament and constitution to select the remedy, while Hahnemann only considered the totality of symptoms.

Regarding the classification of diseases, Hahnemann divided into acute and chronic miasmas: Psora, syphilis, and sycosis, while Vannier based on the morphology of sensory, functional and lesional disorders, with acute or chronic genesis which in addition to Hahnemann´s miasmas, he added tuberculosis (Hering) and cancer. From the standpoint of disease´s causal agent, Hahnemann refers to morbific agent while Vannier a toxinic complex .

Regarding the dynamics of the consultation, Vannier referred that interrogation must be conducted by the physician at once this has been done, then patient must be explored with the same technique that orthodox medicine. In addition, he added iridology as one more technical exploration. Hahnemann established that the questioning must be done through the free tribune and mere observation of the patient and questions must not be directed to a negative or positive response.

Vannier divided the study of the drug in Analytical (characteristic signs, objective signs, subjective secondary signs, procedures), Synthetics (subjective and objective symptoms ), homeopathic antidotes  and incompatibilities. Hahnemann did the most complete study about remedies’ concordances

About the dosage, Hahnemann did little emphasis on the exact dosage of the drug (although he recommended and experienced the minimal dose), but rather the response towards the remedy, while, it seems to be, Vannier studied the dosage and administration interval.

Treatment Technique:
Hahnemann used a similar single drug at a time, while Vannier used a combination of homeopathic medicines at once. Beside, Vannier used methods such as drainage, Organic and toxinic regulation and he also used therapeutic series and families of remedies.

James Tyler Kent
(1849-1916)
James T. Kent, graduated from Eclectic Medical Institute in the year 1871.
Kent received his diploma as homeopath from homeopathic school in Missouri in 1889.
His teachers writings include Dr. Samuel Hahnemann and Emanuel Swedenborg.
Dean of the Post-graduate school of homeopathy “in Philadelphia.
Professor of medical materia in the “Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital”, in Chicago, and “Hering Medical College “, Chicago.

Kent thinks that Psora is the origin of all diseases, believing that was the original sin over which rests all human pathology (Swedenborgian influence). He says the Psora is found in the body from birth and refers that the other two chronic miasmas (sycosis and syphilis) could not exist if Psora had not established  on mankind. Dr. Hahnemann considers that patients may present any disease without necessarily having Psora.

Regarding the dose, for Kent had no difference in quantity, for Hahnemann each pill remedy had a certain amount of medicinal energy. For Kent quantity was just a static factor while the potency is a dynamic factor. (Swedenborgian influence)

Vital Force: Kent believed that the energy came from a single substance, to him, there was no such thing as a pure energy, while Hahnemann considered that there is pure energy without a physical or even a simple substance, he (Hahnemann) thought that it comes from a force Electromagnetic.

Although the germ theory is not a difference, it could be, let me explain it. Kent did not believe that microorganisms play an active role in disease´s processes. He said: – “Most of the doctors are going crazy about the bug and they have been made a vice to say that these (bugs) are the cause of the disease and they think that these” young friends “are extremely dangerous.” Also says: “The bacteria are innocent colleagues and if they carry diseases they only carry the simple substance that causes the disease like an elephant would do it. It seems to be that Hahnemann wrote the first comprehensive study on the effects of microorganisms in the human. Although expressing the importance of susceptibility and constitution of the patient.

Hahnemann used the term infection in a very wide sense, to him; anyone can be infected by any external stimulus which produces a reaction of the body. This reaction is explained by Hahnemann within the conceptual, supra sensual or virtual level, it means, No chemical nor mechanical, then dynamic. There might be positive (healthy) and negative reactions for the body, it depends on the objective, subjective and functional sides. Thus, Hahnemann can consider external stimulus (infectious agents) to factors coming from the enviroment (i,e light sun) until the medicines themselves as they can get a reaction from the body, and in personal opinion, why not, even microorganisms (I mean, any factor able to get a reaction from the body). Therefore, a miasma is a disease (reaction) which is developed, after an infection with an external stimulus (Infectious agent).

Without the existence of microscopes, Hahnemann explains the various phases of an acute disease as if were a microbial disease.

Kent set the mind symptom as the most essential in his repertorization symptoms and he confuses it with personality. Hahnemann only takes the mind symptom which has been concomitant to the disease and never takes personality into account for his repertorization method. (example: How mood changes while in a disease state).

Kent used his own repertory which is filled with errors and additions from doubtful sources, wrong translations and misunderstood techniques on the collection and graduation of symptoms. Hahnemann used the techniques that formed  Boenninghausen´s Repertory 1846 under his Collection (complete symptom and its elements) and graduation protocol.

Eilhelm Heinrich Schüssler
Born in Oldenburg, Germany.
He lived from 1821 to 1898.
1.-He says that the lack of certain minerals in the cells (law of minimum) produces illness.
2.-These lacks of salts were gotten from ashes of cremated bodies.
3.-According to Schüssler, one prepared can be administered simultaneously with various salts and only will be absorbed the needed salt, the others will be eliminated.
4.-He accepts that these salts can be used prophylactically.
5.-He does not take into account the totality of symptoms but the relationship of the disease and salts lacks theory.
6.-He believes that such salts are nutrients that are part of the body. Salts are not drugs.
7.-He did not classify the diseases.

Francisco Javier Eisayaga
He was married to Amalia Bertha Klein both formed a united family with strong values of affection and good principles. They had eight children, three of them are medical doctors currently.
He died on June 26, 2001 at 9:30 pm.
Prof. Dr. Francisco Xavier Eisayaga is graduated from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
He was Urologist at several hospitals in urology in Buenos Aires.
He studied homeopathy in 1949-50, in Argentina Homeopathic Medical Association.
Lecturer and then as vice president and of that association.
He has authored numerous articles and books among which are his Treatise on Homeopathic Medicine and his “masterpiece” translation of The Modern Repertory of Kent.
He was president of the International Homeopathic Medical League from 1988 to 1996

Differences:
1.-Dr. Eisayaga agrees to make clinical diagnostic pathology.
2.-He agrees with experiments on sick people.
3.-Dr. Eisayaga accepts the 2 additional miasmas Dr. Leon Vannier (Tuberculinism and Cancerinism).
4.-He recognizes the achievements of the allopathic medicine.
5.-He reports that Psora may be predisposing for acute illnesses.
6.-In the other hand, he accepts the use of more palliative homeopathic substances.

Bernard Pointevin
1.-Dr. Pointevin attaches importance to characterological traits and morphological typology for the specificity of a patient with the medication.
2.-Vitalistic explanation differs from Hahnemann, He said that the current interpretation should be based on physical-chemical knowledge applied in contemporary biology.
3.-He did not recognize as a “Law” to the similar´s Law but as a therapeutic relationship of similarity.
4.-He says the objective of the consultation is the therapy and understanding of the physiological mechanism and lesion of the disease.
5.-He says, it must do nosological and functional diagnoses.
6.-He mentions that drugs should be prescribed according to both clinical syndrome and homeopathic diagnosis, to be complemented.
7.-He agrees with the antibiotic therapy if the individual does not react to homeopathic medicine or if there is lack of experience in homeopathy.
8.-He experiments on animals.
9.-He doubts remedies work above 9 CH.
10.-He calls empiricism to homeopathic practice.
11.-He takes into consideration the active principle of a substance to experiment its effects within a homeopathic remedy.

G. Vithoulkas
1.-To George. Vithoulkas, the vital force is the same that an electromagnetic field (the concept of resonance). Each substance has a frequency that must resonate with the body so that there is healing.
2.-Similar´s law relates to the above (resonance).
3.-He tries to explain the mechanism of action of the remedies through physicochemical ideas (Poitevin) in biology. (Electromagnetic fields)
4.-Defense mechanism and dynamic and vital force are the same.
5.-Patient first must get sick of Psora to get syphilis and sycosis. (Kent)
6.-He accepts that acupuncture, allopathy, and magnetism can also achieve cure by touching the dynamic plane.
7.-He states that there are plenty of miasmas and not just three.
8.-Accepts treat one miasma every time, in layers of predisposition (layer by layer).
9.-Accepts nosodes as therapy. (Based on Isopathic terms)
10.-The miasma is a diathesis (predisposition) and not disease.
11.-He reports that remedies must be experienced in healthy subjects but who are familiar to the Materia Medica, with an average of ages, between 18 and 45 years old.

Proceso Sanchez Ortega
1.-Dr. Sanchez accepted the therapy in a bi-miasmatic or tri-miasmatic, this (therapy) should be focused towards the prevailing miasma, and then proceed to the next that is most prevalent and so on.
2.-He compares Miasmatic diseases with colors, even; he compares the character and temperament with colors either.
3.-He makes a numerical classification of the miasmas (according to personalities) with combination´s codes that must fit between persons in order of getting a better interpersonal and social communication.
4.-He considers to the miasma as diathesis (predisposition) or a genetic disease.
5.-He made his own miasmatic classification of the remedies.

Escalante Tarsicio Plancarte
1.-He calls to homeopaths as simil therapists, vitalistic (simil) and materialistic (Therapists) respectively.
2.-He based the action of remedies based on their pharmacodynamy.
3.-Dr. Escalante refers that Homeopathic medicine is chosen by the principle of similar but it heals by contraries law.
4.-He supports experiments in animals and other living beings.
5.-He says that homeopathic medicines act in different systems depending on the dose (potency), which invert their action while they are more diluted.
6.-He notes that remedies which exceed the 9c in the practice or the Avogadro limit (12 CH) are useless for healing.
7.-He accepts the Alternatism and complexism. (For alternating or giving several bottles)
8.-He says that the miasma must be attached to the germ theory because Hahnemann did not know abut it.
10.-He supports Isopathy, even he considers it as a Law.

Hebert A. Roberts
I think that Roberts did a descriptive analysis of Hahnemann more than to establish a philosophy, He differs in the following:
1.-Roberts tries to explain the high dilutions of Hahnemann from the point of view of the atoms referring that these acquire radioactive attributes and therefore act at the level of vital energy which moves away from Hahnemannian dynamic concept.
2.-He refers that temperament must be considered for medical history, I.e. to prescribe pulsatilla: Women with blonde hair and blue eyes, or Nux vomica: Woman thin and brown skin.
3.-He called stigma instead of miasmas to syphilis and sycosis, due to the effect almost indelible injury in cells which has been left by these two miasmas.
4.-The author mixes symptoms of developed Psora such as mental and some other items in the stigma of syphilis and sycosis.

N. Ghatac
He is from India. Born in 1918
1.-The only way to activate Hering´s Law is through high Potencies.
2.-Ghatak takes to all diseases as one disease (Psora), Psora includes also the other two miasmas: Syphilis and sycosis
3.-The concept of symptomatic totality is different in acute and chronic cases, the prescription is based on the miasma acting, and it is not in the acute form.
4.-Dr. Ghatak believes that all remedies are tri-miasmatic.
5.-The disease only exists in the mind.
6.-The real action is only effective through homeopathic highly dilutions. All chronic case must be tried with 200c or higher.
7.-Although he considered that low potencies act only in the body, in any case is rarely a good response to 30c.
8.-He does not consider the totality of symptoms only the dominant miasma.

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.

January 2022 online seminar courses.

Given to topicality of our current pandemic, we will have an interactive 2 hour presentation regarding homoeopathic treatment to deal with the ill effects of the disorder.

We will cover the symptoms experienced generally, and what remedies have been proven to be beneficial. These are the same remedies and treatments used in our clinic along with ancillary methods to speed recovery.

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.

4 day seminar for professional homoeopaths to join the Register of the I.H.M.

P1060824We have received a number of enquiries regarding this seminar if a practitioner is unable to attend the course in person due to location overseas or governmental restrictions.

“For inclusion on the I.H.M. Register we require the applicant to undertake a 4 day overview course at our new HQ at I.H.M. Boyne House, Eastbourne East Sussex in the UK. https://ihmatboynehouseuk.wordpress.com/
The course which has been undertaken by many professionals, is an in depth look at the various elements of homoeopathy that collectively give a clear picture of WHAT it is a homoeopath needs to know in order to practice and be successful in undertaking a curative reaction in the patient.
  • Everything is based and predicated on the teachings of Samuel Hahnemann.The cost is £1000 sterling. Payment can be cash, credit card or Paypal. The duration is 4 days.
  • We offer accommodation and breakfast free of charge for the duration of the training.This will comprise of 4 complementary nights in total. As this is a free gift, If you wish to make your own plans for accommodation, there is no discount on the fee.
  • Course content will cover Miasms, Pharmacy and dispensing protocols, an in depth look at LM medicines,
  • use of the Therapeutic Pocket Book,
  • overview of many cases and analysis breakdown in acute and chronic conditions,
  • how to examine the Materia Medica to understand what we are looking for and a general in depth look with the emphasis on case taking and patient management.”

We have been charging the same price for the course since 2015, and are now able to offer free accomodation within the framework of the teaching.

Given the world situation, we now will offer an online course for practitioners to facilitate membership and training in Hahnemannian homoeopathy.

Let us explain what the IHM has been involved in since the last century. We are a research and training centre for homoeopathy as defined and directed by Samuel Hahnemann. We utilize his mehodology as per the Organon and his other writings, to give the best outcome possible for each patient and ensuring they have accurate treatment from the designer of the homoeopathic protocol.

We do not make any claims as to personal superiority in practice, but recognise that applying the principles are a more accurate method of finding the correct medicine for the patients.

To this end, we cover all the aspects of case taking and the rationale, along with many practical examples to join together Hahnemanns directions with the symptoms.

dt_161215_doctor_thinking_800x600

Finding the truly characteristic symptoms of the disease, and not prescribing on a collection of symptoms, is what Hahnemann taught. We endeavour to show how. This approach ensures a consistent and successful outcome, as the remedy selection will be the correct match for the real disease which includes the individual reaction to the infection received.

Logistics.

Given that the UK is Grenwich mean time central, all other time zones will be either behind or in front of us.  So we will have to divide teaching into behind GMT and in front of GMT. For USA and Canada, the differences are between 9 hours and 5 hours BEHIND the UK.  We will have to work with the individuals involved to find a good time to suit each person. The same applies to those ahead of the UK.

laptop2The course (24 hours) will have to be conducted in 3 hour blocks, and spread over a longer time. This to facilitate alertness and time for homestudy. One session a week will be 8 weeks duration. There will be lots of home study. We will use the SYNOPSIS computer repertory utilising the Boenninghausen Therapeutic Pocket book.
