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.

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.

Post graduate course in English in Seville.

Dates:

Any 4 day consecutive period from 26th April to 14th of May 2017.  We offer this because of flight scheduling. So for example, if you have a good price on a flight on Friday 28th of April, we can start the course on Saturday 29th for 4 days.

(We also have affiliate courses being conducted in: Israel: IHM Israel  and in Mexico: IHM Mexico)

largeletterheadMaster-class P.T.P. (Personalised training program) for Practitioners).

The IHM is an organization dedicated to research and dissemination of accurate Hahnemannian knowledge regarding homoeopathy. We teach from the sources and hold no affinity to modern methods of practice or thinking.

We believe that homoeopathy is a branch of medicine based on the law of similars which is the best method for curing sickness. For a person willing to apply themselves to the learning of the principles and methodology of the practice, we believe (if it taught correctly) it can be learned in 6 to 12 months. This does not include other medical subjects like anatomy and physiology.

It is our experience that a practitioner who has learned the accurate knowledge of the medical practice as defined and proven by Hahnemann, is a practitioner that has surety in his ability to follow the principles and directives that will lead to success in his or her prescribing.

A Prescriber utilising the Boenninghausen developed methodology, based on Hahnemanns logic and thinking, will have a far greater understanding of the remedies and application of and what they are capable of and be able to manage the case through to a successful conclusion.

There has been no beneficial advances made in recent years to enhance the logical and accurate methodology as defined by Hahnemann. The reverse sadly is true.

An IHM trained clinician usually is able to collect the required data for analysis in less than one hour, and extract the essential prescribing symptoms quickly.

To this end, we offer the following.

A  four day intensive course for an individual or small group, in a training environment for the learning of Hahnemannian homoeopathy.

Q. Where is the location?

Seville (Spain) .

Q.What Language is the course in?

Primarily English but with Spanish speaking translation if required.

antonio clinic

Q. What will I learn?

Our course is based around all the writings of Hahnemann.

Therefore we will:

  • overview the Organon, The Chronic Diseases, and selected writings.
  • We will then focus on select areas pertaining to casetaking,
  • case management,
  • how to select prescribing symptoms,
  • how to use LM potencies and centesimal potencies,
  • when to stop medicating, when to change potency or change the prescription,
  • How to know when to change the remedy and why.
  • The differences between Chronic and acute prescribing,
  • Miasms,
  • how to read and understand remedy provings.
  • How to use the Therapeutic Pocket book.
  • How to select rubrics from patients language.
  • How to compile a complete symptom that accurately represents the patients complaint.
  • And much more.

Q. Who is the course open to?

Persons who wish to learn the method of practice of Hahnemann and Boenninghausen.

Q. Do I have to be be medically qualified?

No. THE COURSE IS OPEN TO PERSONS WITH OR WITHOUT  A MEDICAL DEGREE

Q. Do I need to be a practitioner?

No. The course has been designed to teach both practitioners and those with some basic knowledge. For the practitioner, it will be more difficult as they will have to “unlearn” a lot of incorrect teachings, and for the neophyte it will be an accurate placement of primary knowledge.

Q. Who will be teaching me? For the entire session it will be Gary Weaver. Other teachers may be available during the training. Vera Resnick will give a training session via SKYPE on understanding remedies.

Q. What happens after the course?

The course is an intensive based at university level education level. There will much to read and recap over the following 6 months to consolidate and ratify everything you have absorbed. For the practitioner, it will be something he or she will slowly incorporate into the clinic, and as they grow more confident with the results, it will transform their clinic work immensely. For the neophyte who wish to continue in training, we will offer some online options.

Q. What is the cost of the 4 days of training?

The cost is €1000 Euros. This is for the course only, not included is the cost of accommodation, airfares and transportation The training will be at one of our clinics. We will provide refreshments and lunch (mainly Spanish traditional cooking at local restaurants. We can provide guidance on Vegetarian, halal and koshe fare if required.)

Q. What books do I need?

We recommend the computer version of the P & W OpenRep SYNOPSIS. It contains all the materials required. The retail price is $799 but for students of the course it can be obtained for $450. €400 Euro.

The course director is Gary Weaver, co translator of the P & W Therapeutic Pocket Book, an accurate modern day revised version of the original 1846 version. It took over 3 years of work to make it to an acceptable working version for the computer. (A book version in English is available as well). Gary spent a number of years from 1998 researching the original writings of Hahnemann and collating his methodology for personal practice. Since then, the information has been presented to several hundreds of people in stpbpwminars and workshops.

It is a great opportunity to take a holiday with the family and combine it with intensive training. We will arrange the teaching schedule so as to maximise your learning and yet leave enough space for time with your family if required.

Please contact education@instituteforhomoeopathicmedicine.com for further information and date availability.

For practitioners who demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of the principles, at the discretion of the officers of the IHM, they may be offered licentiateship.

End of prohibition: in Sweden homeopathy is legal

End of prohibition: in Sweden homeopathy is already legal

From now on homeopathy is legal in Sweden. A Supreme Court ruling overturned a sentence condemning a doctor for having used a homeopathic treatment with a patient. To date, the use of homeopathic medicines had been officially banned in Sweden.

In this case, a Swedish doctor has received probation for treating a patient with homeopathic medicines.

Details about the disease and specific treatment were not revealed by the court. The Supreme Court (Högsta Förvaltningsdomstolen) of Sweden annulled the decision of the judgment (No. 6634-10).

The judges are convinced that the doctor acted in the interest of the patient and applied the medicine that according to the knowledge of the doctor was more suitable  for the patient.

For the court there was at no time of homeopathic treatment any risk for the patient. Thanks to the new ruling, Swedish doctors and pharmacists can officially take part in homeopathy courses and offer training courses .

The president of the German Association of Homeopathic Physicians ( DZVhÄ ), Cornelia Bajic sees in the decision of the Swedish court a confirmation of the growing acceptance of homeopathy worldwide. “The court’s decision is a milestone,” says Bajic. “Thanks to this ruling, the criminalization of homeopathic doctors in Sweden is over.”

Homeopathy in the world: increasingly recognized

The evolution in Sweden is another indicator that homeopathy is increasingly recognized in the world. Many governments officially recognize homeopathy as medical treatment.

These countries include, for example, Latin America , Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador and Mexico. In Asia the governments of India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka are included and in Europe , homeopathy is recognized in countries like Belgium, Germany, Hungary, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland and Great Britain.

In some of these countries, homeopathy is an integral part of the national health system , as in Brazil, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Great Britain and, after a referendum, also in Switzerland, reports the World Association of Homeopathic Physicians (Medicorum League Homoeopathica Internationalis ” LMHI “), which has members from more than 70 countries . More than half come from countries where homeopathy is recognized.

Last year, the door opened in China for homeopathy. The Kent Repertory, one of the fundamental works of homeopathy, was translated into Mandarin, the most widely spoken language in the world. At the same time, the “National Association of Chinese Homeopathy” was founded.

However, the LMHI and its main member, the DZVhÄ, continue with “global solidarity for persecuted and oppressed homeopathic physicians,” says Bajic.

The LMHI annually organizes the International Homeopathy Day in states where homeopathic physicians can not practice freely. This year the venue was Croatia.

Vaccine Fraud. Russell Blaylock M.D.

Post Vaccination – Vaccine Targeted Strain – Viral and Bacterial Pathogen – Shedding

So how much of this said claim is truth and real, and/or not real? Do we know? A search for the evidence.

First of all, let me ask this. Why is it, that when the conclusions of actually peer reviewed studies are not in your favor as to the intended agenda bias, that even endless peer reviewed studies are not enough to get pro-vaccine people to take a look at and even read a single one of those studies; yet when there are limited to little to no existing peer reviewed studies, that they are jumping all over with demands to produce a peer reviewed study, to make such as any certain such as a vax-truth opposing persons point of contention, that has expressed?

In regard to vaccines lets go to the issue of vaccine shedding, and ask the question as to can and do any of the current vaccines shed the pathogen in a way that could make a non vaccinated person susceptible to acquiring the illness from a vaccinated person. There are in Pubmed several but limited studies that address the shedding issue as to in regard to the various vaccines. Just use the search terms vaccine shedding Pubmed, and will you several but as said limited numbers references in the google listing, and then you can go to pubmed itself, which is somewhat as well limited for available references as to claiming one way or the other. As for the measles vaccine, one Pubmed reference stated that it the vaccine could shed for up to three days. Certainly long enough to infect another individual.

So, actually and possibly no one really nor likely knows for sure what the complete truth is on this issue. It would seem to be common sense that the vaccine makers surely do not and would not want to know if their vaccine causes shedding or not; nor to find out. So then who would actually fund theses said studies. I think with what I read and reviewed in regard to vaccine shedding, just getting into even the beginning phase of the studies, tells me that vaccines do have a potential to shed irregardless of being bacterial or viral; which very well could be an obvious risk to the unvaccinated. I mean good grief, the existing studies clearly point to the push to vaccinate everyone due to the risk of shedding possibility. What more evidence would you need of the risk of the vaccinated, to the unvaccinated? And yet the pro-vaccine side wants to claim to just the opposite; and that it is only the vaccinated that are at risk from the unvaccinated??? You know accused again of reducing the vaccine derived herd immunity; even though the schools most often even today have no more than a 5% or less rate of existing school exemptions?  We as well by the way are not are NOT just talking about the oral polio vaccine, here. They clearly know that the oral polio vaccine sheds and can as well cause numerous cases of AFP in the underdeveloped and unsanitary for conditions countries, that the oral polio vaccine is still used to day. They know of the identified mutations in the polio vaccine virus that the the said oral vaccine has very likely as well caused. if they have an alternative explanation, I have yet to hear and or read about it.

So, let me ask you, have vaccines eradicated so called illness and disease, or have they just prolonged the exit, while creating only lower levels of chronic disease, and disease conditions? How about other unrelated chronic illness and autoimmune disease, unrelated to the vaccine targeted pathogen? How about the pubmed listed as well references to the harm of aluminum adjuvants, causing overactivation of the brains microglia and resulting low levels of chronic brain inflammation resulting for repeat multiple vaccines, in some individuals; maybe more individuals and children that we have ever realized? How about the aluminum adjuvant connection to ASD? The studies, and new studies have shown that same brain inflammation to now be found in more and more children and individuals with ASD. And they want to tell us that vaccines have never been scientifically linked in any study, to ASD? Really? How about the MMR vaccine, in which there are actually some similar physiological pathways found in relation to ASD, and also which are in common with heavy metal toxicity, if not overload, in regard to both thimerosal, and aluminum adjuvants. I don’t know about you and what you think, but I think it is not looking good for the claim as to the issue of vaccines doing more good than harm. When will the CD stop living in the dark ages, and dragging their feet as to doing the proper studies? Yet they waste millions chasing the genetic link to ASD, and refuse all other types and forms of real research?

I did pick one specific peer reviewed reference in regard shedding, that I thought was interesting, and a bit troublesome regarding risk. In regard to the shedding of course all they can come up with is to come up with that every last person existing must be vaccinated to protect them against the shedding.

Pertussis infection in fully vaccinated children in day-care centers, Israel.

Abstract

We tested 46 fully vaccinated children in two day-care centers in Israel who were exposed to a fatal case of pertussis infection. Only two of five children who tested positive for Bordetella pertussis met the World Health Organization’s case definition for pertussis. Vaccinated children may be asymptomatic reservoirs for infection.

Pertussis Vaccine Failure is not Just Modern but Historical: Vaccine has Never Been Effective
http://healthimpactnews.com/2013/pertussis-vaccine-failure-is-not-just-modern-but-historical-vaccine-has-never-been-effective/

Researchers find first US evidence of vaccine-resistant pertussis
http://healthimpactnews.com/2013/researchers-find-first-us-evidence-of-vaccine-resistant-pertussis/

And they tell us the vaccines do not shed? How would this be possible if the vaccines do not shed anything contagious? And they want us to believe that the un-vaccinated are a risk to the vaccinated. Vaccine derived herd relatively and comparatively short term immunity, has never had any actual science behind it; and as to natural long term and/or life time immunity, where as that concept actually makes does sense. So what is the REAL reason they say they need vaccine derived herd immunity? Is it possible that it is more likely due to the issue of vaccine shedding? Now we are getting to some actual understanding of what possibly really goes on.

ECZEMA VACCINATUM

ABSTRACT

Nine cases of eczema vaccinatum are presented, including two fatalities. Seven were caused by contact of a child with eczema with a recently vaccinated sibling.

Suddenly appearing umbilicated vesicles superimposed upon atopic eczema are almost diagnostic of eczema vaccinatum or eczema herpeticum. These do not occur with mere secondary bacterial infection.

Hyperimmune vaccinal gamma-globulin is now available for specific therapy.

Eczema vaccinatum is frequently iatrogenic and uniformly preventable.

The following steps are recommended for prophylaxis: 1) No child with atopic eczema or other skin disorder should be vaccinated. 2) No child should be vaccinated if any member of his family has eczema or other skin disorder. 3) Parents of children with eczema should be notified at the onset of the disease of the danger from vaccination contact. 4) If a sibling of a child with atopic eczema is vaccinated, he must be completely separated from that child for at least 21 days. 5) Forms used by state and local health departments for parents’ consent to vaccination should include an appropriate warning of the contraindications. 6) Eczema vaccinatum should be a reportable disease. 7) Patients recently vaccinated must be excluded from pediatric wards containing patients with atopic eczema, other diseases of the skin, burns or healing surgical incisions. 8) Vaccination may be recommended at 2 months of age, especially for babies from strongly allergic families.

Acellular pertussis vaccination enhances B. parapertussis colonization

An acellular whooping cough vaccine actually enhances the colonization of Bordetella parapertussis in mice; pointing towards a rise in B. parapertussis incidence resulting from acellular vaccination, which may have contributed to the observed increase in whooping cough over the last decade.

http://www.cidd.psu.edu/research/synopses/acellular-vaccine-enhancement-b.-parapertussi

And rarely are they testing for it nor even knowing understanding what pertussis pathogen strains are there. B parapertussis antigen is not in the current vaccine. And the fear mongering and the recommended boosters continue.

They can admit to the pertussis vaccine failure in Pakistan, but the CDC can not and refuses to admit to that here happening in the US.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To investigate the aetiology of persistent cough among vaccinated children as suspected cases of pertussis in Khairpur District, Sindh, Pakistan. Pertussis or whooping cough, caused by Bordetella pertussis, is re-appearing in many countries despite vaccination coverage. In Khairpur, persistent cough and symptoms similar to pertussis among vaccinated children are common but the aetiology has not been investigated previously.

STUDY DESIGN:

B. pertussis was isolated from cough samples of suspected pertussis patients (n = 700) using the cough plate method with charcoal agar.

METHODS:

Isolation and confirmation of the clinical isolates of B. pertussis was performed by culture on Bordet-Gengou medium, biochemical tests and polymerase chain reaction.

RESULTS:

In total, 22 strains of B. pertussis were isolated from clinical cough samples.

CONCLUSION:

To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of the presence of pertussis in vaccinated children in Khairpur. There is a need for continuous monitoring of pertussis after immunization programmes in order to assess the efficacy of pertussis vaccination.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22445714

And what has the CDC done about it all? They have only continued with their fear mongering and falsely blaming the un-vaccinated. Cocoon tyle vaccinating whole families, and still the outbreaks occur.

Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence (PDF)

Abstract excerpt:

We present evidence that in the Netherlands the dramatic increase in pertussis is temporally associated with the emergence of Bordetella pertussis strains carrying a novel allele for the pertussis toxin promoter, which confers

increased pertussis toxin (Ptx) production. Epidemiologic data suggest that these strains are more virulent in humans. We discuss changes in the ecology of B. pertussis that may have driven this adaptation. Our results underline the importance of Ptx in transmission, suggest that vaccination may select for increased virulence, and indicate ways to control

Prevalent serotypes of Bordetella pertussis in non-vaccinated communities.

Abstract

In many countries, the prevalent serotypes of Bordetella pertussis have changed from a mixture of types 1,2,3 and 1,2 (organisms possessing antigen 2) to a predominance of type 1,3. The timing of the change in different countries is shown to be related to the introduction of mass-vaccination with material rich in antigens 1 and 2 but weak in, or devoid of, antigen 3. In several parts of the world, there have been outbreaks of type 1,3 infection in fully vaccinated children. Non-vaccinated communities in various parts of the world still show the pattern of serotypes which existed elsewhere before mass-vaccination. In order to avoid the disappointments experienced in the past, it is essential that pertussis vaccine for use in previously non-vaccinated communities, like that for any other country, should be rich in each of the three antigens.

Small Mutations in Bordetella pertussis Are Associated with Selective Sweeps

Abstract excerpt:

Our results suggest that the B. pertussis gene repertoire is already well adapted to its current niche and required only fine tuning to persist in the face of vaccination. Further, this work shows that small mutations, even single SNPs, can drive large changes in the populations of bacterial pathogens within a time span of six to 19 years.

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) Treatment of Whooping Cough *

Discussion
The short series of cases presented is too small to draw any statistical conclusions, but one fact stands out. Ascorbic acid has a definite efTect in shortening the period of paroxysms from a matter of weeks to a matter of days. We have not checked by cough plates or otherwise in this preliminary work to see whether the infectivity subsides simultaneously with the spasmodic symptoms, but are continuing with a larger series of cases in which these and other tests will be employed.

The dosages used have been empirical, with a tendency to use larger doses early in the disease as our experience of its effects progressed. The acid is available at reasonable prices, and the danger of overdosage seems negligible. Animals have received 2,000 times their estimated requirements without any deleterious effects. Any excess is excreted by the kidneys.

CONCLUSIONS
1. A method has been described for the treatment of whooping cough by ascorbic acid
(vitamin C).
2. Ascorbic acid definitely shortens the paroxysmal stage of the disease, particularly if

Another below is another example of a failed effort with polio vaccine. It does little good to claim to have eliminated a certain number of previously present cases of polio, while at the same time causing massive cases of polio vaccine derived paralysis. 47,500 new cases. Yet they claim this is NECESSARY, to eradicate polio. They refuse to admit any failure, it seems to me?

Polio programme: let us declare victory and move on.

Vashisht N, Puliyel J.

Source:Department of Paediatrics, St Stephens Hospital, Delhi 110054, India.

Abstract

It was hoped that following polio eradication, immunisation could be stopped. However the synthesis of polio virus in 2002, made eradication impossible. It is argued that getting poor countries to expend their scarce resources on an impossible dream over the last 10 years was unethical. Furthermore, while India has been polio-free for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated. The principle of primum-non-nocere was violated. The authors suggest that the huge bill of US$ 8 billion spent on the programme, is a small sum to pay if the world learns to be wary of such vertical programmes in the future.

What Is Coming Through That Needle? The Problem of Pathogenic Vaccine Contamination

Mutant Polio Virus Spreads in Nigeria

Experts have long believed epidemics unleashed by a vaccine’s mutated virus wouldn’t last since the vaccine only contains a weakened virus strain – but that assumption is coming under pressure. Some experts now say that once viruses from vaccines start circulating they can become just as dangerous as wild viruses.

“The only difference is that this virus was originally in a vaccine vial,” said Olen Kew, a virologist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The oral polio vaccine used in Nigeria and elsewhere contains a mild version of the live virus. Children who have been vaccinated pass the virus into the water supply through urine or feces. Other children who then play in or drink that water pick up the vaccine’s virus, which gives them some protection against polio.

But in rare instances, as the virus passes through unimmunized children, it can mutate into a strain dangerous enough to ignite new outbreaks, particularly if immunization rates in the rest of the population are low.

Kew said genetic analysis proves mutated viruses from the vaccine have caused at least seven separate outbreaks in Nigeria.

Though Nigeria’s coverage rates have improved, up to 15 percent of children in the north still haven’t been vaccinated against polio. To eradicate the disease, officials need to reach about 95 percent of the population.

Nigeria’s vaccine-linked outbreak underlines the need to stop using the oral polio vaccine as soon as possible, since it can create the very epidemics it was designed to stop, experts say. WHO is researching other vaccines that might work better, but none is on the horizon.

Until a better vaccine is ready, WHO and U.S. CDC officials say the oral vaccine is the best available tool to eradicate polio and that when inoculation rates are nearly 100 percent it works fine.

“Nigeria is almost a case study in what happens when you don’t follow the recommendations,” Kew said.

Mutated Polio From Vaccine Is Spreading in Africa

A mutation from a live polio vaccine is stalking Nigeria. In a strange twist of logic, experts are claiming that it mutated as it passed through non-immunized children.

The claim is that children given the live attenuated oral vaccine are properly immunized, but the live virus passes through them and enters local water supplies through their urine or feces. Then, children who have not been immunized pick up the supposedly safe virus by drinking or playing in the water. The weakened virus mutates in them, becoming a new virulent strain.

Why the virus would choose to mutate in non-vaccinated, rather than vaccinated, children is unexplained. Even odder is why the weakened virus would pass through the vaccinated children. If the purpose of a live attenuated vaccination is to force the body to develop antibodies to the virus, then why would live viruses be excreted? Shouldn’t they be killed by the newly-developed antibodies?

Are we being lied to?

This sounds much like the argument that blames nonvaccinated people for disease in those who’ve submitted to innoculations. If the vaccines are effective, then why would the vaccinated be at risk from the unvaccinated?

Are we being lied to?

Point mutations involved in the attenuation/neurovirulence alternation in type 1 and 2 oral polio vaccine strains detected by site-specific polymerase chain reaction.

We screened for this mutation in five type 1 and nine type 2 polio vaccine-derived strains isolated from vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) cases and in 16 such strains isolated from healthy vaccinees. All 14 strains isolated from VAPP presented the reversion. Of the eight pairs of type 1 isolates from healthy vaccinees, four presented the reversion 3 days after vaccine administration and all but one at 7 days postvaccination. These results support the involvement of the 5′ non-coding specific nucleotide sites in the reversion to neurovirulence of attenuated polio vaccine strains upon multiplication in the human gut

Look at the unbelievable statements in the next set of information. So ask, WHY are they using a live and shedding viral vaccine, in these contaminated areas, at all?

Oral Polio Vaccine Circulation and Mutation after Mexican National Immunization Weeks

Conclusion: OPV, primarily serotype 2, was detected in sewage as late as 7 months after an NIW in a Mexican community primarily vaccinated with IPV, but was not detected at 8 months, suggesting that OPV circulation may have ceased.  VAPP mutants were predominantly detected.  This data suggests that in communities with high vaccination rates, one or two years of IPV administration after OPV cessation could be sufficient to prevent outbreaks of paralytic poliomyelitis from vaccine-derived strains.

Polio vaccine suspected as cause of fatal mutant form of encephalitis

The polio vaccine isn’t protecting children – and, worse, it appears to be causing a new and sometimes fatal form of the disease.

Concerns about the vaccine have arisen following a high number of deaths and hospital admissions from encephalitis and polio in the Uttar Pradesh region of India – where there has been an intensive vaccination programme.

Around 400 children have died, and a further 2,300 admitted to hospital, following an outbreak of a new form of viral encephalitis, and doctors admit they do not know its cause.

Unvaccinated Blamed for Mutated Polio, (AGAIN ALWAYS FALSELY THE UNVACCINATED ARE BLAMED FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS)

Mutant polio vaccine regains virulence

Excerpts:

But the latest study raises the frightening possibility that the vaccine strain can also regain the ability to spread between people more easily than thought. “It demonstrates clearly that the vaccine virus can spread from person to person,” says Olen Kew from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

The outbreak was exacerbated by the fact that Haiti had relaxed its polio vaccination program more than five years earlier. “It’s a warning that you need to have good coverage to prevent vaccines from running away like this,” Kew says.

Total eradication

The study also shows how difficult it will be eliminate polio entirely. For this to be achieved, natural polio would first have to be wiped out through stringent use of the oral polio vaccine. Then all countries could simultaneously stop vaccinating or switch to a different vaccine – injectable, dead polio virus.

This method does not confer as much immunity as the oral vaccine, but it cannot revert to a disease-causing form. This vaccine is already used in the US and much of Europe.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn2047-mutant-polio-vaccine-regains-virulence.html

This again points to the claim that they think they need to get 100% vaccine coverage in ever country with existing polio, and only then it may be possible to stop polio, but yet they know they will have the mutations still going on and the result of that is in their minds quite obviously only necessary collateral damage, so to speak. So, as long as they can keep blaming it all on the unvaccinated, which is not exactly proven; it is an assumption. And as long as they keep playing Russian Roulette with the vaccine virus; in the hopes that it does not continue to mutate to a point of becoming a super virus world wide. But in the end, the with the known odds that have been and in the resulting outcomes; clearly it all shows this plan to be not only failing and dangerous; but even currently, is likely causing more harm than good; and will continue to.

Abstract

Analysis of urine specimens by using reverse transcriptase-PCR was evaluated as a rapid assay to identify individuals infected with measles virus. For the study, daily urine samples were obtained from either 15-month-old children or young adults following measles immunization. Overall, measles virus RNA was detected in 10 of 12 children during the 2-week sampling period. In some cases, measles virus RNA was detected as early as 1 day or as late as 14 days after vaccination. Measles virus RNA was also detected in the urine samples from all four of the young adults between 1 and 13 days after vaccination. This assay will enable continued studies of the shedding and transmission of measles virus and, it is hoped, will provide a rapid means to identify measles infection, especially in mild or asymptomatic cases.

You see in the next below link that it ALL depends on who has done the study, as for if they find the evidence of shedding due to a/or the vaccine. Here we have the Journal of Infectious diseases that is closely aligned with pharma and Offit’s CHOP. And they of course find predicable no shedding. Can you imagine the upset if they had, and presented to the CDC with that? Clearly, is not happening.

So, the pro vaccine side again claims to what? Well if there are no studies to prove that the vaccines cause shedding, then it simply doesn’t happen. Just like in regard to the vaccine aluminum adjuvants; if no studies have ever been done, then we can proclaim that there is no scientific proof of the harm, thus there is no said harm being done.

Abstract

The duration of mumps virus RNA detection was studied during a mumps outbreak in a highly vaccinated university population. Seven of the eight reverse transcription-PCR-positive specimens were collected during the first 3 days of parotitis, suggesting that viral shedding is minimal after the first 3 days of symptoms.

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.

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.
  • Tapas lunch.

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

Fees: The course is offered as stated for €750 per person or less if multiple attendees come in a small group.

Why Hahnemann did not repeat medicines when they acted.

Aphorism 245 and 246 of the 5th edition were combined in the 6th edition to make clear the following principle.

§ 246 Sixth Edition
Every perceptibly progressive and strikingly increasing amelioration during treatment is a condition which, as long as it lasts, completely precludes every repetition of the administration of any medicine whatsoever, because all the good the medicine taken continues to effect is now hastening towards its completion. This is not infrequently the cause in acute diseases, but in more chronic diseases, on the other hand, a single dose of an appropriately selected homoeopathic remedy will at times complete even with but slowly progressive improvement and give the help which such a remedy in such a case can accomplish naturally within 40, 50, 60, 100 days. This is, however, but rarely the case; and besides, it must be a matter of great importance to the physician as well as to the patient that were it possible, this period should be diminished to one-half, one-quarter, and even still less, so that a much more rapid cure might be obtained. And this may be very happily affected, as recent and oft-repeated observations have taught me under the following conditions: firstly, if the medicine selected with the utmost care was perfectly homoeopathic; secondly, if it is highly potentized, dissolved in water and given in proper small dose that experience has taught as the most suitable in definite intervals for the quickest accomplishment of the cure but with the precaution, that the degree of every dose deviate somewhat from the preceding and following in order that the vital principle which is to be altered to a similar medicinal disease be not aroused to untoward reactions and revolt as is always the case1 with unmodified and especially rapidly repeated doses.
1 What I said in the fifth edition of the Organon, in a long note to this paragraph in order to prevent these undesirable reactions of the vital energy, was all the experience I then had justified. But during the last four or five years, however, all these difficulties are wholly solved by my new altered but perfected method. The same carefully selected medicine may now be given daily and for months, if necessary in this way, namely, after the lower degree of potency has been used for one or two weeks in the treatment of chronic disease, advance is made in the same way to higher degrees, (beginning according to the new dynamization method, taught herewith with the use of the lowest degrees).

Hahnemann first says that any noticeably progressing and strikingly increasing improvement during treatment excludes the repetition of the remedy because the cure is already hastening to take place.

This means that any time a single dose, or a series of doses, causes a strikingly progressive improvement any repetition is counter indicated for the time being. This is because the vital force is moving toward the cure at a maximum rate and any more doses will only slow down the cure.

Then the Founder takes up the subject when a single dose only causes a “slow, continuous improvement” that may take over 50, 60, or 100 days to complete the cure. In these cases the split-dose of the medicinal solution may speed the cure to 1/2,1/4, or less the time it takes the single static dry dose.

This goal may be accomplished under five conditions.

  1. The remedy must be a true homoeopathic simillimum.
  2. The remedy should be administered in medicinal solution.
  3. It must be administered in the smallest of doses.
  4. The medicinal solution should be repeated at suitable intervals.
  5. Each dose should be succussed prior to administering the dose.

This is the basis of Hahnemann’s advanced posology that teaches the practitioner when to wait and watch as well as when to act according to circumstances. This is what Hahnemann called the middle path approach to posology.

Homoeopathy is a system of flexible response in which the methods of adjusting the dose are central to case management.

The LMs act smoothly for their remedial powers considering their potency actions. For this reason, the LMs are far more suitable than the 200c and 1M for a good number of patients.

The large gaps between the 30c, 200c, 1M and 10M Centesimal are too large for many constitutions and chronic conditions. This Kentian system only offers 7 potencies while there are 30 different micro tonal LM potencies.

These individuals usually do very well on the LMs when they are given properly. If they take 200c or 1M (esp. the dry dose) it causes unproductive aggravations and accessory symptoms.

These are some of the differences. The LMs are safe and effective when the potency, succussions, and dose are individualized and the patient is not over-medicated.

 

By carefully reading the 6th Organon and the Paris casebooks much more information has come to light.

This situation is finally starting to change as homoeopaths experienced in the 4th Organon method take up experiments with the revisions introduced in 5th (1833) and 6th editions (1842).

The method of the Organon is an artistic method that must be individualized to the patient. There are no preconceived schedules that can guide one. The daily dose or alternate day dose may be correct for one person while one dose a week, month or year is sufficient in another.

Any time one gives too many doses one sees the side-effects of over medication. What a homoeopath learns is when to wait and watch as well as when to act to speed the cure.

Comments by David Little…

Following the instructions.

Its a hard lesson to learn. Not only for the patient but also for the practitioner.

I am not proud to admit that some of my failures in treatment have been because of not understanding WHY Hahnemann wrote to not repeat the medicine whilst improvement was happening in a patient. In my mind, repeating the dose would speed along the process and so in the early days I would re prescribe when improvement was slowing down rather than having stopped.

Here is what we sometime forget, or in many cases, do not know. NO MEDICINE CURES. Once we grasp this simple fact and fully take this on board, we can begin to understand the process of what happens when we prescribe for a patient. It is the immune system of the patient that cures.

A patient will present a set of symptoms that have arisen from an infection or disease process. We collect the information and place the expression of the existing state in a collation of symptoms. We then analyse the problem in terms of the pathology and change from the normal expression of health, and examine each symptom in relation to its:

  • Origins
  • Location
  • Sensations
  • Modifying factors
  • Relationship with other symptoms.

In doing this for each expression of the disease, NOT the preferences or personality of the patient, we begin to see HOW the disease is reflected individually in the patient. With this knowledge, we look for a well proven homoeopathic medicine that has the ability to create a similar set of symptoms, in effect produce an (increased) state of DIS-ease in a healthy person. In administering a medicine of similarity, what we are doing is amplifying what we consider the key symptoms or centre of the disease, and thus making the immune response ´focus´more intensely on dealing with this stronger disease state.

At this point we have modified the immune response to a singular assault on the strongest presenting problem, be it artificially induced, we observe changes in the economy as the process of removing the disease begins. Given that we do NOT know HOW the immune system will work or what it needs to clear first, we need to ALLOW the process to work to completion, or as Hahnemann states, we will ruin the case.

What does this mean in real terms?

In chronic cases, it took a long time for the patient to develop symptoms to the point where they are in the grip of a disease. Each part of the disease process followed another part and laid an extra layer of pathology until the presenting state is before you. We can only remove from the presenting symptoms with the newest symptoms taking precedence. In this way we hope to remove the disease state slowly back to the core issue layer by layer… the reality is that we do not know which symptoms are tied in to the underneath problem, and therefore might require time and various potencies of the same medicine to work We also do not know HOW it will work or when. What we do know is that as long as the patient is responding to the remedy, no matter how slowly is that the immune response is working. I find that I am reluctant to interfere with that process simply because my experience of working with LM or Q potencies shows me that over medicating can cause problems for an already weakened immune system.

Case example:

Male, late 50s presented with skin eruption on lower limbs of both legs. Hot red p1060321and flaking. Started interior side of right lower leg and round spots developed on anterior side of lower limbs growing to same size as original area. Itching, red flaking. The eruptions then started on the left leg mirroring the right left from starting on the inside and then going to the outside of the leg.p1060332

Based on the prescribing symptoms.. Sulphur 200c was given in water, 2 doses 5 hours apart. (due to initial dose manufacturer doubts over the medicines viabilty. )The patient reported tiredness and increase in itching a week later. By the end of 4 weeks, the redness had disappeared, the flaking stopped and the eruptions shrinking. Although the tiredness continued, the medicine was allowed to work for 2 months. After two months mild itching returned and the eruptions were not progressing further. This time the patient was given a single dose of LM 01. The eruptions then continued to clear up. a month later, the patient had a prostate issue with a mild infection. In the repertorisation Sulphur was again indicated so the medicine was allowed to work uninterrupted. Despite increase in desire to urinate and mild aching in the prostate, no medicine was given. 2 weeks later, these symptoms cleared up by 80%. The patient is due for re evaluation soon t see if the same medicine is indicated or a change required.

We must be careful not to interfere with the immune response from implementing a medicinal action. Too much medicine is far worse than too little especially in a weakened state. Better to wait than to initiate a problem. In this case it is obvious that there are things going on in the patients health that needed treating carefully and sparingly. Due attention to detail and not being in a hurry to over medicate is a must. Once the medicine is given, the immune response goes into action and it will do what imust and take as long as it needs. We help it along when no further progress is happening and not before.
