A Knight in our midst!

Scholten award


On April 25 2014, Jan Scholten, one of homeopathy’s leading lights, has been decorated as Knight in the Dutch Order of Orange Nassau by the Mayor of Utrecht. This title is reserved for Dutch citizens who deserve appreciation and recognition from society for the special way in which they have carried out their activities.

Originally put forward by Jan’s eighteen year old niece and her mother, the idea to present him as a candidate for knighthood was supported by Jan’s wife, Maria, and then by homeopaths from around the world, who all wrote letters attesting to the importance of Jan’s work, and to his humanitarian qualities.

One would be hard pressed to find a more worthy recipient of this prize. Jan’s tireless work in the development and advancement of homeopathy has opened up countless new possibilities for cure and has influenced homeopathy worldwide. In 1987, together with colleagues, Jan founded the Homeopathic Centre for Doctors in Utrecht, Holland, where presently eight homeopathic doctors work. He is also frequently on the road, giving seminars worldwide, as well as writing for journals and various online homeopathic sites.

Jan brings to his work not only his knowledge of medicine, but also of chemistry, mathematics, and philosophy. He calls himself, rightly so, a scientist, making good use of solid information and logical thinking. At the same time, he stands open to information derived through the senses, thus marrying right and left brain in his research. He has conducted many provings and has furthered not only our understanding of remedies, but of homeopathy in a broader context.

Until recently, Jan has mainly been known for his ground-breaking discoveries regarding the application of the periodic table in homeopathy, which has enabled homeopaths to make use of all the elements and their salts. His work on the Lanthanides has made the treatment of auto-immune illnesses, previously difficult to cure, much more accessible. His major work and his main field of interest in homeopathy, however, has always been the Plant kingdom. Last year, his extensive book on the plants was finally published. Like his work on the mineral kingdom, this book provides ways of finding hitherto unknown remedies, and a better understanding of our well-known ones. Despite the controversy inherent to the development of new approaches, homeopaths worldwide who have applied his methods diligently attest to their efficacy in aiding their patients. In a time where old paradigms are falling and new ones are being fought against tooth and nail, it is inspiring to have a guiding light in our midst, someone whose constant striving for the health and happiness of mankind is so well-founded. Jan most certainly deserves this award, as his many patients, colleagues and friends around the world will confirm. Congratulations, Jan.

Congratulations to Sir Jan Scholten! For me, he is an Initiate, a Man with a Mission. Such brave souls incarnate from time to time in order to bring more light and love to Humanity. And to appreciate them is indeed the very least we can do for them.
Ever since I opened "Homeopathy and the Minerals" I became a fan of Sir Jan. In my opinion, he can not only talk the different languages of Nature fluently, but as well to interpret and translate them into plain, meaningful words for other people to understand. He is a real contemporary embodiment of Chiron - the wise teacher, healer and mentor.
To honor such a person is a real act of enlightenment - not for him, but for those who took this decision. Sir Jan Scholten hardly needs such things. What really honors him is his work, and it is immortal.
God bless you, Sir Jan Scholten, and thank you for all you do for us all. We appreciate you!

Dear Jan,
I don't have to mention, that we homeopaths are grateful for the insights you offer to us. However, this prize shows us, that honest work receives acknowledgement even in the non homeopathic community, and encourages all of us to focus on this, instead of focussing on silly nonconstructive critics. Now, even in this respect, you became a role model for us and a "knight" for the truth of homeopathy. There could be no better award for this task and no better person to deserve it!

Would be a really great day for Homoeopathy, to win another Nobelprize for Hollland.
After all Holland is the country known for its many frogs, who all say "Quack" !
