Staying Healthy During the Coronavirus Outbreak

I have hesitated to report about the coronavirus (COVID-19) until now because the mainstream narrative has been so pervasive that I have not had any clarity as to the reality of this pandemic. I use the word pandemic with great caution because the number of cases worldwide and in the US does not equal pandemic at this point. I am not being naïve but cautious about the reality of this.

Currently, the mainstream blitz of constant news coverage is beginning to create a hysterical response from the greater population. That is the reality as I see it now. The number of cases to date is increasing but the reality is that this minimal number of people affected is being reported as if millions are dying.

The fear that is being generated is starting to really take hold. I am talking with clients now who are asking questions about it and expressing deep concerns. At this point, I am less concerned about the virus as I am about the response to the news of it.

The Legality of Practice

In the United States, the practice of medicine is regulated by legislation in each of the 50 states. The reality is there are 50 different sets of laws that relate to the practice of medicine so it becomes quite confusing. Most states do not address homeopathy in particular which makes it even more difficult to navigate.

You are bound by the laws of the state in which you reside and practice. It is a good idea to investigate and read the legislation in your state. I am not a lawyer and this is NOT legal advice. If you can not understand the legislation written by your state in regards to homeopathy or the practice of medicine then consult a lawyer or contact your Attorney General’s office. They can help you to find the pertinent legislation, interpret the meaning and share any info they have as to how the practice of homeopathy has been handled.

Only a few states have Homeopathic Medical Boards that specifically regulate homeopathy. These states require testing and fees and...

Why Become a Homeopath?

Why become a Homeopath? Because you love people. If you do not have an innate love for people then maybe being a Homeopath is not the right job for you. When you spend all day listening to people's woes and sufferings, it can be exhausting if you did not have an innate love and compassion for others. Not everyone is suited for this type of work. This is fine. But for the serious person wanting to become a Homeopath, you better love people.
 
Become a Homeopath because you love to learn. There will never be a day without learning as a Homeopath. Every person is different and every case is different. There is a unique remedy for each person. This is not something like allopathic medicine where you figure out a diagnosis and then prescribe a set protocol of medicine. It is an art and science to translating a person's story into a unique repertory of symptoms and then selecting a remedy for that person. It is far more elegant than an allopathic approach and provides never-ending...

Learning Homeopathy vs. Becoming a Homeopath

I get many questions about homeopathic study and find that there are distinct differences in learning homeopathy and becoming a homeopath. They are really two different things entirely. Let me explain.

Most schools of homeopathy offer courses on homeopathic history, philosophy, repertization, and materia medica. These courses will give the homeopathic student much information; mostly from books. The course usually is designed to give you as much information as possible about the more common remedies and the philosophy of Hahnemann and Kent. This is usually reinforced by taking exams that grade on multiple-choice questions and essays to determine if you have a correct understanding of the subject at hand.

This method of learning and evaluation is very lineal. It relies on memorization and deductive reason to pass the test. A good student may be able to excel in such an environment and get perfect grades. After successfully passing the first several years of the course, they may be...

Why Homeopathy Can Be Confusing for People

I find homeopathy is one of the most misunderstood and confusing subjects for many people. Here’s why; it is not represented accurately. Aside from gross misrepresentation on behalf of those wishing to discredit this wonderful healing art, it is too often confused with the allopathic model of medicine.

Most often when I ask my clients what they know about homeopathy, the most common response is, ”It’s herbs and vitamins, right?” No, it is not. Homeopathy is a system of medicine. The remedies are energetic medicines and not homeopathy. Homeopathy is the reason to give the medicine and not the medicine itself. This is very confusing for most people.

When a person goes to the health food store and has a malady of some sort, they may come to the aisle for homeopathic remedies. There may even be a little booklet to help them find a remedy for their suffering. The whole time they are still thinking that the remedy is something like a drug or herb. It is to help...

The Three Major Ideas of Homeopathy

Vibration, resonance, and susceptibility are the three major ideas that explain homeopathy. Without a clear understanding of these principles and how they relate to each other, it is very difficult to ever explain homeopathy effectively. As Homeopaths, we are always explaining the concepts of homeopathy, but I find that it is one of the more difficult tasks of any student. Even practicing Homeopaths find homeopathy difficult to explain. Here are the key ideas to keep in mind.

Vibration is present in all forms. At the quantum physics level of understanding, it is all about vibration and the non-physical glue that holds matter together. This weak force is a force that keeps all atomic structures in perfect relation to all of the particles making up their existence. This is something akin to spiritual glue from a layman’s perspective. This spiritual glue has a vibrational quality when matter is formed. It is what holds the particles, atoms, molecules, and organisms together so...

What Does It Take to Be a Homeopath?

What does it take to be a homeopath? We often think of those in the healing arts as equivalent to the medical profession and being a doctor; after all, we are helping people with their acute and chronic medical issues as well as their mental and emotional challenges. But being a homeopath requires much more than being a medical doctor. Because the allopathic medical model is built on a materialistic premise, the whole of modern medicine is based on diagnosis and physical treatment by drugs, surgery or radiations.

Homeopathy is based on a spiritual, non-physical premise and requires that the homeopath see the patterns of the physical expression to understand the dis-ease. It is not based on a diagnosis but on a collective understanding of the person's symptoms and deviations from health. This makes the homeopathic "diagnosis" somewhat less diagnostic and more of a synthesis in the understanding of the person. Luckily we have the person's vital force showing us constantly their...

How to Approach Your Homeopathic Education

I get many questions about the study of Homeopathy and what is the best approach. I think it could be an individual preference but after training homeopaths since 2001, I have found that there are a few things about homeopathic education that really work. I would like to share them with you.

I have found that if a person wants to be a professional homeopath, seeing clients on a daily basis, they must really love people and being around them. This may sound a bit absurd at first. After all, it isn't the job of the homeopath to be around people and help them. Yes, but you might be surprised at how many students I have talked with that have spent 3 years at some other homeopathic school and have never taken a case or spent time with clients. When they were finally introduced to a new client case they were surprised at their own reaction. I have heard everything from fear in front of the client because they did not have confidence in being a homeopath ( they have never done it before)...

Licensing and Certification in the USA

The most common question I receive is about getting certified in homeopathy and being able to practice legally. Certification and licensing are completely different in Homeopathy. Certification is to certify. It amounts to attesting to something. Certification can come from any school or certifying organization as to certifying the completion of a course or educational requirements.
 
Along with certification, there is usually a title or credential that the applicant will have earned. There are many titles in circulation today that schools and organizations have created to attest to their applicant's successful completion of the requirements. These certified credentials are not recognized by any State or Federal Regulating Body and only serve to bring legitimacy to the Homeopath.
 
The title most recognized in the world is RSHom. It comes from the Registered Society of Homeopaths in the UK. This title is the oldest and most respected title and is used by more Classical...

The Importance of a Mentor

Having a mentor is one of the best ways to accelerate your homeopathic learning. It is an integral part of our program at the Resonance School of Homeopathy. It is the best way to get the personal guidance necessary to avoid the bigger mistakes and errors made by the novice homeopath.
 
We all have to start somewhere. There has to be that first case we receive as a homeopath. Not having participated in this role before can be quite unnerving for the new homeopathic student or homeopath. If the program for learning has not included case receiving as a major part of the learning process, then the student will usually be lost in the process and this lack of confidence will be known by all.
 
Having confidence and knowing how to communicate with the client is key to a successful case. It is an art to be able to sit with someone and know how to get them to open up and reveal what is asking to be healed. Once this process is complete, then the task of case analysis and...
