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.

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.

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.

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.

Completed Zaragoza Seminar

32 Delegates from the Zaragoza Association and independent homoeopaths joined together to discuss the practice of homoeopathy as defined by Hahnemann.

The viewpoint of Hahnemann was illustrated through the Organanon and his other writings in respect to casetaking, characteristic symptoms and what to prescribe for. Time was spent correcting erroneous viewpoints endemic in homoeopathy and pointing out the correct understanding again from sourced references.

We took a long hard look at miasms and stated Hahnemanns viewpoint and definition of what they were.

numerous case presentations underlined all the principles to cement the reliability of the practice.

The I.H.M.would like to state our gratefulness for the genuine caring and minding of the speaker in every respect. Dr Juan was the perfect host for attending to every need and requirement.
