Take this course if you want to …
– Nourish your love and passion for homeopathy regardless of your current level of experience.

This class is designed for experienced homeopaths as well as beginners. It is open to naturopathic, osteopathic, chiropractic and medical physicians, nurses, therapists, acupuncturists, veterinarians, all variety of medical school students, and serious lay people interested in the practice of classical homeopathy. We will be teaching all of the basics from philosophy and case-taking to materia medica, repertory, case analysis and long-term follow-up care. And then proceed quickly to more advanced concepts which help translate the elegant philosophy of homeopathy into a successful and enjoyable practice. This method also assists practitioners in evaluating any other therapeutics in a logical and systematic way to gauge the direction of cure.

We emphasize the Herscu method of Cycles and Segments which informs all aspects of practice. Cycles and Segments is a tool which allows us to help our patients more efficiently and with better results; it enables us to focus case-taking and offers a practical way of organizing and analyzing information gathered. This approach allows for the satisfying study of materia medica which is deep and integrated without the cumbersome memorization of long lists of individual symptoms.

Drs. Paul Herscu ND, MPH and Amy Rothenberg ND, both 1986 graduates of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (now NUNM) and well-known authors, lecturers and original thinkers in this field, are the instructors. They have taught the art & science of homeopathy to 1000’s of practitioners in the US & abroad for over 30 years.

The class will meet for three days (Friday night and all day Saturday & Sunday) 10 times over 19 months on the lovely Hampshire College campus.

Participants are given reading and homework assignments between sessions and are expected to come to class prepared. All students receive the Herscu Letter, a twice per month problem-based email learning lecture, as required reading. These assignments underscore and reinforce classroom  material.

We encourage communication among students through our private on-line class discussion group. Our goal is to create a supportive learning environment where deep understanding is attained in a culture of respect so that when the class is completed these relationships add to the overall health and dynamism of the homeopathic, naturopathic, and integrative medicine communities.

It is also our goal to nourish your love and passion for homeopathy regardless of your current level of experience so that every graduate of our program goes on to enjoy a successful and satisfying practice of homeopathy in whatever context it might be used. With more and more Americans looking for complementary and alternative medicine solutions for their chronic health care problems, patients are searching for qualified homeopathic physicians and practitioners for help.

A welcome packet with class dates, information on travel and lodging and a pre-course reading list will be emailed out upon acceptance to the course. Apply early!

For a succinct introduction to the Cycles and Segment approach, read Paul’s Stramonium with an Introduction to Analysis Using Cycles and Segments. Hundreds of homeopaths are applying this method to practice with rewarding results. It helps to make homeopathic practice less overwhelming and more enjoyable. To read up on cases treated in this fashion you can see either of the two issues of The New England Journal of Homeopathy (Volume 8, #’s 1 & 2). The cases in these two volumes reflect and illustrate this approach.

We invite you read through a case by Dr. Rothenberg to show how she uses the Cycles and Segments approach to avoid being inundated while taking the case, to clarify her thought process, to organize the information and finally, to select an effective remedy. She has included her impressions and elements of her thought process in this case to both share her inner process and to model how she uses Cycles and Segments to help guide her case-taking.

We look forward to learning with you and helping you further your understanding of, and commitment to homeopathy. Please contact us for more information.
