Is there room for us?

I’m sat on the IHM boat in Hemel Hemsted, currently with either battery or inverter issues…. either way is a fistful of money to fix. Things happen.

Watching the events of the last few months, and how the countries are pushing towards vaccines as the answer, and how the populace are either worried to distraction or are against the lockdowns ………. I’m seeing how homoeopathy is being denigrated and indeed being removed by the fact-checkers on google and Facebook and other sites. We seem to be sidelined in favour of ‘proper treatment’.

Well, I worked out a prophylactic remedy a few months ago, and of the 600 plus people  that I and other members of the IMH have given in 4 countries…. not a single case…

Guillermo Zamora and I have treated individuals with COVID sx to a good resolution………but who is listening…………?

The world is changing. Nothing will ever be the same. WE need to accept and be prepared to change how we do things and still be homoeopaths in mind and action. We need to make the room for us.

We at the IHM do not make claims to ‘cure’ COVID or offer alternative vaccines. We treat each case individually as per our Hahnemann protocols and will give the prophylactic to be taken once a week or every two weeks. Some give daily, my experience with taking more than once a week was a massive proving and difficulties until it wore off…So I advocate once a week simply because, in truth, I don’t know how long the protection lasts……. I know that weekly or even 2 weekly seems to hold.

We have to stand firm on the principles and be sure we know what we are prescribing for, the essential symptoms that need treating…… not just the remedy with the most symptoms covered.

The IHM uses the TPB of Boenninghausen simply because it follows the Hahnemannian protocols, and will work in 98% of cases both acute and chronic. We do not discount the use of other well-proved remedies and advocate a thorough knowledge of them before prescribing. The essence of using the TPB is a well-taken case and extracting the symptoms according to aphorism 153.

Every disease has a centre. The disease symptoms are known, and the patient exhibits symptoms ‘peculiar’ to the patient its either intensity or prominence. These all may have other symptoms not noted as pertaining to the disease state.

WE have to find these symptoms out of the collection of altered sensations that the patient feels. We have to remember that many symptoms are the result of the causative condition and therefore NOT prescribing symptoms per se.

Since 2016We have conducted a 4-day intensive seminar for application to become a member of the IHM. The students are all long time homoeopaths who increased their knowledge base by learning the Boenninghausen method and tidying up the loose ends that were muddied by Kent and others.  The original venue was at our clinic in Seville Spain and has now relocated to The London area on our IHM Widebeam vessel.

We will offer a free bedroom aboard the vessel for individual applicants, and will just ask for a contribution toward food. The fee for the 4 days intensive will remain at the same cost as from 2016. It will be Sterling £900.

We will be fitting out boat for teaching in the next weeks, and be ready for the new year……..to get going government permitting. We already (with the help of members Abdul Malik and Imran Khan) are putting together a clinic for when we are ready to start…

The IHM has a 4 day training opportunity, starting in 2021. We dont claim to have all the answers, but we do feel we can teach the Hahnemanninan methodology in case taking.

What we teach:

  • The rationale of homoeopathic medicine and the use of the Therapeutic Pocket Book in everyday casework.
  • The examination of the patient according to defined parameters of eliciting prescribing symptoms without the filter of all the variants of non-Hahnemann practices as 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.
  • How to understand the meaning of rubrics via the patient’s symptoms.
  • Lots of case examples and analysis by Gary Weaver.
  • Help in re-examining some of the students’ intractable cases.

The future in the U.K. for I.H.M. homoeopathy

We purchased a wide beam canal boat for clinic and teaching. We can at present only accommodate 4 for teaching, government rules, (2 staff) but when we can have more, room for  10 students onboard.

Currently working on refurbishing the lounge/teaching room. We hope to be ready by the end of the year.

We will be based initially between Reading and London to the Limehouse Basin area. Then as the laws pertaining to COVID alter, we will travel up to just short of Birmingham, Oxford and over to the Bristol area.

We will operate below the purple line

The IHM will have a clinic onboard…… (we are working to convert the room). For overseas students taking the four-day membership course,  we offer free accommodation on board with a small contribution asked toward the food. This will definitely help with lessening the costs of staying in the UK. We have a full domestic kitchen with water chiller and constant hot water for beverages.

This is the staff bedroom.

Bathroom with shower and washing machine… twin sinks.

‘currently setting out a timetable and short seminar syllabus.

 

IHM Project in the UK 2019/20

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.

Benefits of the IHM teaching seminar

……. I have been a homoeopath for 17 years. In my library are many repertories and Materia Medicas. I found in the four days of study with the IHM, I was no longer struggling with the uncertainty of repertorising with the variants of Kent. For the first time, there was a sense of understanding the case in terms of symptoms and a concise homoeopathic viewpoint………. With over 60 case examples from acutes to chronic, I found an excitement coming back to my clinic. It has been 4 months since my training session and I can honestly say that everything has improved. … thank you so much, Gary. D.W.  USA 2015

……….Who would have thought that the little repertory by Boenninghausen could have solved some long-standing patient cases so easily! The hard part for me is forgetting everything I’ve been taught and learning Hahnemann properly. A great teacher! E.W. Romania 2016.

Having been a victim of all the major aberrant versions of homoeopathy, Kent, Vithoulkas, Sherr, Scholten Sankaran, etc. I have never encountered a more clear, confident, practical approach than Gary Weaver’s. This is real homoeopathy. With his vast clinical experience and the clearest understanding of Hahnemann and Boeninghausen I’ve ever encountered, you have a teacher and practitioner of rare worth and ability. Homoeopaths of all ranges of experience should be taking advantage of this man’s expertise. E.N. California 2019

Our aim at the IHM is and always has been to instil knowledge and ability in the practitioner. We have our teaching faculty in Seville Spain (English) and a teaching faculty in Mexico. (Spanish). We accept non medical trained practitioners as well.

August 2019 in Sevilla is available for the 4-day seminar. Let us know your proposed dates and we will facilitate you.

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.
