I did a one month course with Gary Weaver in 2011. Via SKYPE as I was on vacation in Texas at the time and with a 7 day mentor one on one training at his clinic in Florida. Was it worth it?

There are some things that change life attitudes and understanding of medical practice and this was one of them. As a physician then based in Asia. I had studied homoeopathy via the teachings of George Vithoulkas and Rajan Sankaran. There was confusion and conflict in my casetaking and doubt as to the effectiveness of homoeopathic medicine as many of my patients, most of my patients were not getting better. It was actually a friend of mine who had been successfully treated by Gary that recommended me to talk with him as he knew I was considering dropping homoeopathy from my practice.

A short time later, my son developed a high fever with complications, I could not do anything and the hospital could not do much. I contacted Gary Weaver. He listened to the symptoms and said to give Belladonna in LM 1 potency, one dose for 3 times in the day. On the final dose, my sons fever was decreasing and all his vitals were returning to normal.

I needed to know why a prescription could be made over the phone and be accurate without a deep investigation into the psyche of the patient so I asked if he would teach me in the remaining vacation time I had in the States. We began a 2 hour SKYPE session every 3 days for 3 weeks. In that time I learned to read the Organon as a medical practitioner and saw it was not dull or dry or full of spiritual subliminal meaning. I read Chronic Diseases for the first time and saw the reality of what Hahnemann’s model was, and how even today is still valid in modern medicine. I learned how to examine a patient to extract the individual disease symptoms from the infection and how to isolate the key expressions of disease in order to make a prescription.

My husband and I and my son went to Florida for a week so I could learn in the clinic. Gary let me sit in with patients and listen to SKYPE consults and gave me lots and lots of room to practice each case. I was introduced to the Therapeutic Pocket Book and was shown how to use it. It is my main source of reference today.

At no time did I get the sense of learning “Garys method”. Their was a continual attribution to Hahnemann via referenced writings and time spent examining concepts in conjunction with other writings to corroborate each understanding.

I am saddened that this method of teaching is not in every school and college and seat of learning of homoeopathy today. So much that is taught is incorrect and misleading. My career is now homoeopathy only and my patients are actually getting cured as opposed to managed.

 NOTICE:

We have had to close our representation and presence in Mexico.

Dr Guillermo Zamora is no longer associated with I.H.M. International and the I.H.M. Mexico company  licence has been rescinded.  Please direct all correspondence regarding the P&W computer program to info@homeopathyonline.org where we will be pleased to assist you with your queries.

Once we have established a new agent in Mexico, we will place details on our Website.

Due to the closure and removal of the Mexican branch, we have found ourselves without Spanish tutors who are trained sufficiently in the methodology to help us present the modules in the Spanish language. We therefore have to cancel the Spanish course until we are in a position to offer full tutor help in Espanol.

If anyone is offered a place on a course in Spanish with links to the I.H.M. please check with us to see if it is a validated or affiliated teaching program we offer.

A great bunch of people

I.H.M. Seminar in Saragoza Spain 2014.

Sevilla Seminar

Delegates from Seville and surrounding areas, along with Drs from The Canary Islands spent 2 days discussing Hahnemanns view of homoeopathy and also the works ofBoenninghausen.

14 cases were presented in video and powerpoint to demonstrate Hahnemanns approach to disease according to the Organon directions. All medicines used to be of benefit were found with the aid of the Therapeutic Pocket Book by Boenninghausen 2015 edition by P&W.

Attention was paid to the case taking methodology in diseases of varying depths of pathology, and the importance of assessing the cases using the right symptoms for prescribing. We discussed the absolute importance of prescribing on altered disease symptoms and not personality.

Discussions were held regarding miasms and the understanding of Hahnemanns words were clarified.

A Great Seminar altogether.

Thanks to Antonio Ortega for his friendship and translation for the group.

¿SABÍAS QUE el método de repertorización de Boenninghausen, anterior al de Kent, fue usado por el propio Hahnemann?  En su obra principal, el Órganon, hace referencia a él en la nota al parágrafo 153: “El Dr. Von Boenninghausen ha prestado un gran servicio a la Homeopatía con la publicación de los síntomas característicos de los medicamentos homeopáticos y su Repertorio, lo mismo que el Dr. J.H.G. Jahr con su manual de síntomas principales.

 El  Manual  terapéutico para médicos  homeópatas  de  Boenninghausen  era  el  repertorio más usado a finales del siglo XIX, pero fue cayendo en desuso a raíz de la popularidad del repertorio de Kent, aunque el mismo Kent reconoce haberlo usado. En la actualidad existe un movimiento de recuperación del interés por el antiguo repertorio de Boenninghausen.

El Dr. Gary Weaver ha investigado desde hace un buen número de años con ímpetu y tesón las fuentes originales,  y  ha  llegado a  comprobar  en  su  práctica clínica  la  eficacia  del  método Hahnemanniano mediante la toma del caso, análisis de unas cuantas rúbricas, consulta directa a MMP y EC, prescripción y seguimiento. Todos estos temas serán revisados a profundidad por el

Dr. Weaver.

Seville Seminar Spain 24th-25th October.

The Seminar will be in English and translated into Spanish.

Lots of cases to demonstrate the methodology of Hahnemann. We will be taking a look at the reasons for choosing rubrics and why and how an eye must solely be kept on the few characteristic symptoms expressed in a case of disease.

Zaragoza arrival.

Today is the start of the seminar. I arrived yesterday from Palma Mallorca and was taken to the hotel where I am staying for the duration. Last night, one of the organisors of the seminar, kindly took me out with his wife and daughter for a tour of the city, a visit to the largest shopping Mall in Europe and a wonderful Tapas meal where we discussed many things.

This morning,  I am looking over the notes and finalising the presentation details. Later, I will go to the medical hall and we will hook up the projector to the computer and test it.

I decided to begin the seminar with a detailed overview of the development of homoeopathy, Hahnemanns thoughts regarding (from the results of his experimentation with provings) case taking and analysis and examine his rationale for symptom extraction via observation. We will then look at a couple of cases to demonstrate the points made.

Tomorrow and Sunday, we will progress along the theme, and take an in depth look at how the medical practice of homoeopathy grew after his death, and examine the different schools of thought and match them to the original methodology and see whether it is better or worse for the changes made. This will include a long hard dissection of the American homoeopathic scene as developed by Kent.

We have many cases to demonstrate the effectiveness of the scientific medical approach of using homoeopathy for a lasting curative result.

It is going to be an interesting weekend

Seminar Musings

We are approaching the time for the first Spanish Seminar of the year, and have been busy working on the presentations.

The seminar has been designed as a continuous flow from

  • an overview of the development of Homoeopathy and the Repertory,
  • how to read the writings of Hahnemann,
  • comparisons of modern day techniques with the scientific approach of the originator,
  • a look at the model of miasms in case taking and whether it has value in case analysis.
  • looking at Characteristic symptoms and Essential symptoms and understanding the difference via on screen case presentations.
  • discussing rubric use and what a symptom is.
  • A look at how to use the Materia Medica.
  • A look at LM potencies.

Dr Guillermo Zamora, the director of I.H.M. Mexico, kindly translated a lot of the screen presentations into Spanish for our colleagues in Zaragoza.

The language issues have been dissipated by having my favourite translator for seminars present. Nadia has studied homoeopathic medicine in Spain and is familiar with all the terminology.

We look forward to seeing you at the Seminar in Zaragoza.
