New England School of Homeopathy


The New England School of Homeopathy (NESH) was created in 1990 to translate homeopathic philosophy into the successful and predictable practice of medicine. Our goal is for practitioners of homeopathy to fulfill their potential role in health care-to help people attain freedom from illness on the mental, emotional, and physical planes so they may better realize their highest aspirations.

NESH has provided training in classical homeopathy for over 2000 students in the United States and abroad. Our classes are designed to educate the beginner, to enhance and broaden the practicing homeopath’s knowledge so that consistent, favorable results are delivered, and to provide a continuum of advanced learning opportunities for NESH alumni, as well as the entire homeopathic community.

Indeed, the NESH student body includes a wide range of heath care practitioners–from medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic doctors to nurses, acupuncturists, chiropractors, psychologists, and non-doctor professional homeopaths.

About The Directors

Drs. Paul Herscu and Amy Rothenberg are naturopathic physicians, who have been specializing in classical homeopathy since 1986. A husband and wife team, their teaching styles vary, but their purpose is one: to inform, enrich, and inspire other homeopaths in their efforts, and to encourage them to fine-tune their perceptions so that they might better help their patients.

Dr. Herscu’s 1991 book, The Homeopathic Treatment of Children: Pediatric Constitutional Types grew out of his work with children during the early years of his practice, and has been adopted by homeopaths the world over as the classic text for treating children. Just out in 1996, Stramonium: With an Introduction to Analysis using Cycles and Segments is the result of extensive work with emotionally troubled children. It lays the foundation for learning homeopathy through a unique and creative new approach. His most recent book: Provings, with a Proving of Alcoholus is a comprehensive guide to the philosphy and methodology of conducting a proving. It also contains a full proving, materia medica and repertory of the remedy Alcoholus.

Dr. Rothenberg is known for her lively lectures to both lay and professional groups on various aspects of homeopathy and also the treatment of different acute and chronic conditions. She was the long time editor of the New England Journal of Homeopathy. The couple practices in Enfield, Connecticut.
