Dear Colleagues.

Is an allopathic qualification essential to being a good homoeopathic practitioner?

After much discussion ~ and based on the reality that most allopathically trained physicians do NOT have a good grasp on the correct practice of homoeopathy, we at the IHM have concluded that it is not, and moreover, that bridging the gap between medical and non-medical homoeopaths is an integral part of the therapy’s future.

To this end, we have decided on the following:

  • We aim to strengthen the IHM’s presence worldwide, and especially in Spain where its headquarters are currently located, by continuing as an independent homoeopathic research and teaching association offering international seminars, practitioner training and master classes. We have presented Seminars since 1987 and formed 5 teaching colleges.
  • To offer IHM membership to medical and non-medical practitioners, according to IHM’s membership requirements, which will endorse a practitioner as a well trained specialist in homoeopathic medicine regardless of allopathic qualifications. We only teach the therapy as per the Organon and do not overlay the writings of Kent or any modern thinking regarding what homoeopathy is.

The IHM Association will comprise of

  • Support members. (Non practitioners.)
  • Student Homoeopaths
  • H.M licentiate Homoeopaths (medical and non medical)

Only Licentiate Practitioners, those who have trained with the IHM and have passed the requisite entry requirements for endorsement, will be promoted on the IHM’s official register.

What we offer:

Based on the writings and thoughts of Samuel Hahnemann,

 “…I have decided to open here in Leipsic, at the beginning of April, an Institute for Graduated Physicians. In this Institute I shall elucidate in every respect the entire homoeopathic system of healing as taught in the “Organon,” and shall make a practical application of it with patients treated in their presence, and thus place my pupils in a condition to be able to practise this system in all cases themselves. A six months’ course will be sufficient to enable any intelligent mind to grasp the principles of this most helpful science of healing. More detailed conditions will be sent on receipt of a prepaid envelope. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.Leipsic. 4th December, 1811.”

We took a look at the procedure to train persons to become a homoeopathic physician. Knowing that most people cannot take a 6 months sabbatical (as per Hahnemanns proposal) we have devised a method of seminar attendance and home study that spans one year. This will include:

Details pertaining to the professional one year training course. Leading to Licenciateship with the IHM

  • An initial 4 day intensive training session at our Seville Spain faculty. This training is for both neophytes and practicing consultants.
  • A further period of guided home study.Online discussions.Another day 5 training session in our Seville faculty with emphasis on case management.
  • A final assessment by the IHM officers and moderators as to readiness to be placed on the IHM register as a licentiate of the Institute.

(If in the opinion of the training officers, if is thought that a practitioner is of sufficient knowledge and expertise and practices according to Hahnemanns methods, the IHM will consider awarding a licentiateship after the primary one week training.)

What we cover in the 4 day intensive.

  • A thorough grounding in Hahnemanns methodology and teachings.
  • You will see through case analysis how his method of understanding the disease state is superior to any other and allows for an accurate case management program.
  • You will see what a ‘miasm’ is and how to take it into account if required.
  • You will learn LM or Q potencies and how to use them.
  • You will learn rubric understanding of the Therapeutic Pocket Book and see its superiority in case analysis.
  • You will have more success in your practice utilizing Hahnemanns directions.

The languages used for teaching are English or Spanish.

(For those in South America, we also have a IHM teaching course in operation: https://institutodemedicinahomoeopaticaamericalatina.wordpress.com/2016/09/12/curso-de-capacitacion-homeopatica-para-principiantes-online-o-semipresencial/

For those in Asia, we have a course for beginners based in Hong kong. http://homeopathyhk.academy/

For those in Israel we have a practitioner training. Contact vera.homeopath@gmail . com

We will consider traveling to a location and conducting the teaching on site for 6 or more students for the 4 day intensive. Contact us to discuss.

We also conduct 2 day seminars in Spain. Contact us to discuss.

The IHM uses primary source materials for all of its teachings. Gary Weaver and Vladimir Polony compiled the SYNOPSIS computer program and spent 3 years working on updating the 1846 Therapeutic Pocket Book by Boenninghausen, to correct errors of insertion, gradings and removing the incorrect additions by Allen. P & W also clarified the outdated English language and revised the terminology yet remained true to the original meaning. The repertory has been translated from the original German (included in the program) to English, Spanish, Italian, Hebrew and Polish. More languages will be added as and when.

Hong Kong Seminar.

The IHM was invited to Hong Kong to have a four day Seminar with the Hong Kong Academy of Homoeopathy.

We had 4 days of intensive study together. A lot of case work, analysis, a couple of live cases and discussions on the use of LM medicines, both preparation and how to use following the protocols of the Paris notebooks of Hahnemann. We discussed Miasms and their influence today in illness, and a whole host of other subjects.

Considering that the students were relative newcomers to homoeopathy, it was interesting to see how from day one to day four, their abilities to focus on a case and look for correct symptoms increased dramatically as they applied the Hahnemannian protocols. We had three senior doctors from Bangkok join us for the seminar. A pleasure to see them.

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.

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.

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.

English only 5 day intensive course. Oct 6th-10th. 2016.

Following on this year from teaching practitioners (English language excluding Spanish) from Hong Kong, Austria, Poland and the UK, we have another 5 days mapped out. Starting Thursday the 6th right through till Monday 10th October.

You will be taught in the IHM North Seville clinic for 4 days, and on the Monday will tour a homoeopathic pharmacy and be instructed on the making and usage of the 50 millesimal potency range.                                                                                                     

We will keep you supplied with beverages and snacks and light food so your energy keeps up.

laptop2We will walk you through the teachings of the Organon and Chronic Diseases and show from original sources the foundation of homoeopathy, the therapy. We will build for you Hahnemanns model of casetaking, dispel the myths and show the reality of his methodology. We will present many cases for you at various stages of difficulty to work on and see how the Boenninghausen method of repertorisation works best. We will demonstrate how to understand miasms and how to use them in acute and Chronic diseases.  We will increase your confidence in the therapy by giving you the Hahnemannian guidelines for practice.

There has never been any other way to practice the therapy. What we have today from Kent on is a deviation from the clinically observed practice methodology of Hahnemann. By returning to the proper way, your patients benefit and the practice gains validity again as opposed to modern interpretive practices today which bear the name but not the proper application of the therapeutics. Once more the Materia Medica becomes the bedrock of successful prescribing based on observed symptoms and not speculative thinking.
