Feb 5 THURSDAY, BASIC HOMEOPATHY
MEETING, Rm: Rm: Educ. & Training 1 &2
The first meeting of the month will cover the basic principles of homeopathy and how to self-treat emergency and common acute ailments. It is geared toward beginners, although more advanced students will benefit as well.
- For this meeting:
We are starting a series of sessions on basic principles of homeopathy and how to apply them in acute situations. We will be using the widely available “Homeopathic Medicine At Home” by Maesimund B. Panos MD, as a the primary reference, supported by other books and exercises. Please bring the Panos book if you have it.
In this session we will give guidelines on how and when to take a remedy, the frequency, and what to expect. We will also cover the major accident remedies for shock, bruising, sprains and strains. If you have not already done so, please read pages 49-55 and 65-69 in Homeopathic Medicine at Home by Panos.
Please bring other self-help books, a
Materia Medica, such as W. Boericke’s “Homeopathic Materia Medica”
and Kent's Repertory, if you have them. Please contact Carol ([address removed] or[masked]) or Irene
([address removed] or[masked]) if you
want information about books.
Applied homeopathy - In addition, if there are any articles in the current issue of Homeopathy Today or other journals that you would like to discuss, please bring the magazine with you.
Feb 19 22 - THURSDAY, Advancing Homeopathy, Room: Rm: Educ. & Training 1 &2
Homeopathic Philosophy and Practice - Vithoulkas - We will continue to read and discuss the book The Science of Homeopathy by George Vithoulkas. Vithoulkas was primarily responsible for the resurgence of homeopathy in the West in the 1970s, including teaching many of today’s prominent homeopaths. This book explains homeopathic philosophy in modern terms and discusses its practical application.
Please read Chapter 3, and if you have
not already done so, read the Introduction and Chapters 1-2. This book can be
purchased from homeopathic booksellers for about $32 but some used copies can
be found at www.Alibris.com and www.Abebooks.com for significantly less.
Clinical Article by George Vithoulkas on “The colour of the homeopathic improvement: the multidimensional nature of the response to homeopathic therapy,” which can be found at http://www.vithoulkas.com/images/stories/Articles/colour_of_homeopathic_improvement.pdf Copies of the article will be available at the meeting. We will review this article and work on finding a remedy for a case. Bring your Materia Medica and Repertory.
The email list is up. If you want to share or have questions about homeopathy, please feel free to email the group.
