Removing the effects of allopathic medicines.

We teach the fullness of Hahnemanns instructions in our specialist case taking seminars.

§ 76 Sixth Edition

Only for natural diseases has the beneficent Deity granted us, in homoeopathy, the means of affording relief; but those devastations and maimings of the human organism exteriorly and interiorly, effected by years, frequently, of the unsparing exercise of a false art, with its hurtful drugs and treatment, must be remedied by the vital force itself (appropriate aid being given for the eradication of any chronic miasm that may happen to be lurking in the background), if it has not already been too much weakened by such mischievous acts, and can devote several years to this huge operation undisturbed. A human healing art, for the restoration to the normal state of those innumerable abnormal conditions so often produced by the allopathic non-healing art, there is not and cannot be.

Too often the physician finds a patient before him that has been plyed with numerous drugs in the treatment of  their affection. How much can homoeopathy do in a situation like this?

stressed_tired_drHahnemann points out that in his experience, if the energy of the patient has not been completely depleted by drugs, it will be by the sole action of the immune system/Vital force that can restore health. Accessory help can be given by looking at the primary miasm/infection and helping to remove that, but primarily it is only the organism that can cure and this can take several years. Sometimes structural changes in the organism occur from the drug action, and the resultant action from the immune system to save life produce incurable or unchangeable situations.

For this reason Hahnemann asserts that Homoeopathy is only really useful in the treatment of NATURAL DISEASES and that these acute and chronic non miasmatic iatrogenic drug diseases are almost impossible to treat successfully.

I have sadly turned away several patients with drug induced disease states that did not respond to treatment on this basis.

The training courses in case taking.

So why do we offer specialist courses on case taking?  Anybody in homeopathic practice that has been taking patients cases for the longest time, or even for new practitioners, there is a problem with understanding what is essential to prescribe for in the symptoms.

For those that have been through the Kentian school of homeopathic learning, that is emphasis placed on the mental and emotional symptoms above the pure clinical symptoms the are present and belong to the disease state. Until a practitioner fully understands the difference between aphorism  5 and 6 and 153 the results in the clinic will be less than ideal.

The IHM has spent over 30 years in research and training in homeopathy using the principles Hahnemann clearly enunciated for us to use. The three-day training course is to focus the practitioner on essentials in the case taking and in the evaluation of the collection of symptoms to find the correct prescribing criteria that is both in the disease and in a remedy that produces that state.

Everybody that has trained with us and applies the principles have seen much success in the clinic. Some of the cases that has being presented to us by practitioners as incurable or unable to help, have resolved quickly by application of the Hahnemannian principles…

The staff of the IHM claim no special abilities personally. We place emphasis on careful case taking, and in the evaluation, a criteria based selection of symptoms that represent the individual expression of disease and can be matched to the curative remedy.

Everything has been stated by Hahnemann in his writings. We just help you to understand it .

 

March 2017. Mentor training course.

So you have spent a lot of money, invested a couple of years of your life in training, observed several different methods of approach to casetaking and prescribing,  now hold your piece of paper and are on your own in the world of homoeopathy.

Feel alone? A sense of being lost? Not confident in your approach and results?

clinic1The Institute for Homoeopathic Medicine, established in 1986 is very familiar with your situation. The IHM conducts an average of 7 international seminars a year and many thousands of training hours teaching individuals the Hahnemannian methodology of casetaking and case evaluation through the Therapeutic Pocket Book approach by Boenninghausen.

Due to the multitude of prescribing methods taught, we see the confusion in a graduate many times.

Hahnemann developed a very precise and penetrating case analysis mode for ascertaining the precise sx of the disease state.  Modern ‘homoeopathic’ approaches do not utilise ANY of the founders instructions and therefore success in clinical terms is not high on the list.  I often hear, “but the patient feels better”… yes, but they still have the problem they came to you with….

Boenninghausen was Hahnemanns most competent student. To the professions benefit, Boenninghausen managed to encapsulate the manner in which Hahnemann examined a case via symptoms, and was able to formulate the process in an invaluable repertorial process known as the Therapeutic Pocket Book.

tpbpwVladimir Polony and Gary Weaver undertook to do a re translation work (starting in 2007, completed in 2010/11) into English from the original 1846 edition, thus repairing many of the errors found in Allens version. It is now available in English, Spanish, Italian and Hebrew.
