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.

Thailand Seminar: June 27th and 28th.

A 2-day event covering 27th to 28th June 2019.

The price will be 13000 Baht (U.S.$400.)

We do not differentiate between medically qualified homoeopaths and lay homoeopaths. All are welcome.

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.

New Register members and a first.

It is 2:06 am here in Seville Spain. A long day, some patients (even on a Sunday) and sorting thing matters IHM.

The IHM officers here in Seville are currently taking the traditional August holidays out of the city due to the heat, and some even out of the country. I am left to hold down the clinic.

abduldiplomaThis past week, 2 non medical students attended the 2nd 5 day intensive training course here in Sevilla, They have been building on their first intensive with online and home study for a year. Finally they felt confident enough to come for the completion of their training.

The I.H.M. is please to announce that Abdul and Imran are the first non medically qualified students to have completed the full training. Both have been around homoeopathy for a number of years, and this course solidified their knowledge and expanded it to where it needed to be. As senior lecturer, I have been especially hard on both of them to ensure they kept on track and stayed the proper route. Where I saw weakness in attitude or a trait that would diminish their ability to do justice to the patient, I jumped on it. These two men need every Hahnemannian quality of observation and application to do good service, and I believe they are achieving it. I have nothing but respect for them.

Both students have worked through over 49 cases in the classroom with me in both teaching workshops, and in the teaching this week, they worked on 6 acute cases, with me,  3 as they came into me via email. The 3 cases, for which they worked on all reported a imran diplomasuccessful outcome. This case work on top of all their other studies.

They committed themselves to a hard life for two years, balancing family, secular work and study. They have a goal of working with communities in the London England area, and now are well on their way to achieving their project.

In the coming week, I will take pleasure in adding them to the list of IHM Practitioners.

Vera Resnick, who participated in teaching them in the first course, will take pleasure in co-signing their Diploma.

All the Officers of the IHM sincerely wish the best for their future and appreciate the hard work and effort that has been put into study.

Learning the Therapeutic Pocket Book.

Since 1986, the IHM has researched and promoted Hahnemannian homoeopathy. Led by Gary Weaver, the IHM staff have studied the writings of Hahnemann and Boenninghausen, and then collated the information so as to be useful in the practice of Homoeopathy.

Homoeopathy is not a spiritual healing therapy. It is a medical speciality for treating disease utilising a specific treatment protocol as outlined by Hahnemann. Writing millions of words during his lifetime, Hahnemann carefully enunciated HOW to practice and gave instructions to follow based on experimentation results and observable phenomena.

The practitioners of the IHM have all undergone intensive training in casework utilising the Therapeutic Pocket Book to ascertain remedies to study for the prescription. Gary Weaver and Vladimir Polony updated the Therapeutic Pocket Book starting in 2008 by re writing the rubrics  using the original German text, and then placed the context in modern English but retaining the original German meaning. This correction alone took 2 years. We then added corrections to the rubric lists, some of which were obtained from other researchers and verified by us. We removed the additional remedies added by Allen in his English edition but retained his layout. In doing so we left familiarity for the practitioner in using the TPB.

We have been fortunate to have been aided in language translation to Spanish (South American) by Guillermo Zamora, to Spanish (mainland Castellan) by Antonio Ortega and Manuel Gutiérrez. Italian by Marco Colla, and Hebrew by Vera Resnick.

It is necessary to comprehend HOW the TPB is to be used to complete a symptom.

  § 133
On experiencing any particular sensation from the medicine, it is useful, indeed necessary, in order to determine the exact character of the symptom, to assume various positions while it lasts, and to observe whether, by moving the part affected, by walking in the room or the open air, by standing, sitting or lying the symptom is increased, diminished or removed, and whether it returns on again assuming the position in which it was first observed, – whether it is altered by eating or drinking, or by any other condition, or by speaking, coughing, sneezing or any other action of the body, and at the same time to note at what time of the day or night it usually occurs in the most marked manner, whereby what is peculiar to and characteristic of each symptom will become apparent.

The TPB, despite claims to the contrary, can be used to ascertain general symptoms  or specifics. By fully understanding the meaning of the rubrics and how to combine locally and generally, the genius of the synthesis will ACCURATELY guide to one or a few remedies that produce the individual state under consideration.

It takes fully about a year of practice to become comfortable with the genuine Hahnemannian protocol and analysis method. Boenninghausen captured the rationale completely in the Therapeutic Pocket Book.

Your clinic success rate will increase quickly, and the non confusing methodology of repertorising will only take minutes and give a surety in prescribing.

The IHM teaches how to use the repertory and what the rubrics mean. We teach how to combine and incorporate valid PRESCRIBING symptoms for analysis. Using Hahnemanns protocol, often cases are worked out using 3-6 rubrics only. We do this via intensive 2-4 day training seminars either as a large group or individual training.

Course costs. Sliding fee.

One thing that the I.H.M. does for attendees of the courses, is to have a sliding fee depending on numbers. We have fixed costs that have to be met, yet are able to spread the costs over the numbers present for each course. For each course, we have usually 4 members of staff. Gary, Antonio, Manuel and Vera by SKYPE.

For example:

  • 1 participant is €1000 Euros
  • 2 participants is €850 per person.
  • 3 participants is €750 per person.
  • 4 participants is €700 per person.
  • 5 participants is €650 per person
  • 6 participants is €600 per person.

We just count the number of attendees and the cost is divided as per above.

For any GROUP attendances, contact us at education@instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.com

We try and help the best we can.

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.

the IHM is offering a special 3 day personal mentoring and teaching weekend with Gary Weaver.

gary-w

During the month of March 2017 dates:

17th-19th inclusive.

24th-26th inclusive.

31st-2nd April inclusive.

The 3 day course is available to both Medically qualified and non medically qualified practitioners.

Based in Sevilla Spain.

ENGLISH language only. 

(We can supply a Spanish homoeopathic translator for an extra €150 if required)

There will be a section of the course regarding understanding Materia Medica that will be conducted via Internet with Vera Resnick D.Hom med I.H.M.

What will be included in this 3 day Training.

  • All refreshments and snacks.

The training is dedicated to the study of Hahnemanns methodology for case taking. We do not overlay with Kentian/Swedenborg influences and rely solely on the instructions given by Hahnemann,

This will involve:

  • A deep study of the related Organon sections to casetaking.
  • A comprehensive analysis of his rationale for understanding what disease is,
  • What to look for
  • How to complete a symptom
  • How to find the expression of the disease in an individual
  • How to link symptoms for a complete picture of the disease.

We will demonstrate each step of the process with video and powerpoint and multiple case examples.

We will also:

  • Demonstrate Hahnemanns thinking through the analysis process formulated by Boenninghausen in the Therapeutic Pocket Book.
  • This work when used correctly, can quickly point to the generals of a case or indeed the specific single symptoms that point to a remedy for use.
  • We will examine:
  • Miasms
  • Causal events
  • Organ failure
  • Acute diseases
  • Chronic diseases.
  • Totality treatment in one sided diseases
  • How to treat concurrent different diseases.
  • Repetition of medicines.
  • Alternating remedies.
  • LM or Q potencies. How to dose, Repetition, case management and how to deal with aggravations.
  • How to read Materia Medica to get the right medicine.

We award a Diploma for attendees and the chance to qualify for I.H.M. membership. http://ihmstaff.boards.net/board/5/licentiate-practitioners
