We are excited to announce that NESH will be returning to the Pacific Northwest once again to offer our 8 Weekend Homeopathy Course starting early 2020. This course meets every other month on Friday evening, Saturday, and Sunday on the campus of Bastyr University (this is not Bastyr University sponsored event). This is the first time we’ve been back in the Seattle, WA since our 2015 course.

NESH Seattle Course Weekend #1: Dr. Herscu spoke broadly about epidemics and more specifically about the materia medica of Gelsemium (one of the genus epidemicus remedies needed for recent upper respiratory tract infections). He also touched on the Novel Coronavirus and then jumped into the vast topic of epidemics in depth during Weekend #2. This 90 minute lecture was open to the public for free. We will post a link here listen if recording was successful.

This 8 Weekend Course is designed for experienced homeopaths as well as beginners. It is open to medical, naturopathic, chiropractic, and osteopathic physicians, acupuncturists, nurses, therapists, veterinarians, all 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 and Amy Rothenberg, well-known authors, lecturers and original thinkers in this field, are both 1986 graduates of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine (now NUNM) and have taught the art and science of homeopathy to 1000’s of practitioners in the US & abroad for going on 30 years.

The class is held for three days (Friday-Sunday), 8 times over 17 months. We meet from 6-9pm on Friday evening, and from 9am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday.

Our goal is to create a supportive learning environment where deep understanding is attained in a culture of respect, questioning and debate such that when the class is completed, these relationships add to the overall health of the homeopathic and naturopathic communities.

It is also our goal that every graduate of our program go 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 sent to you upon acceptance to the course.

For a succinct introduction to the Cycles and Segment approach, read Dr. Herscu’s Stramonium with an Introduction to Analysis through 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 look forward to learning with you and helping you further your understanding of, and commitment to, homeopathy. Please contact us for more information.
