Programme Registration How to get there Seminar times Accommodations

Following the highly successful congresses of recent years, with up to 500 participants from 30 countries, we are now pleased to announce the upcoming 2014 homeopathy congress: "Homeopathy – from childhood to old age." Leading homeopaths from around the world will be presenting their individual approaches to the treatment of children and elderly patients - from ADHD, behavioural disturbances, and typical illnesses of childhood through Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses that occur more often with increasing age. A multifaceted congress that promises to be a highlight for 2014.
The popular Dutch doctor Resie Moonen kicks off the congress with her report on the Lanthanides for children. She presents impressive cases of learning and behavioural difficulties as well as autoimmune disease. The English doctor Jonathan Hardy, who was very enthusiastically received at previous congresses, shows the great potential of spider remedies for children with problems such as ADHD, sleeplessness, and motor disturbances. NEW: Sunirmal Sarkar (another insider’s tip) gives valuable notes on the homeopathic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as well as on the application of potentised chemotherapy as treatment of cancer.

On the second day, the well-known Indian homeopath Alok Pareek draws on his extensive clinical experience to discuss neurological disturbances, including the major theme of "Alzheimer's dementia" in elderly patients. Rosina Sonnenschmidt offers reports of healed cases of muscular atrophy, borreliosis, and early-onset dementia, including some powerful live cases. The French doctor Jean-Lionel Bagot shows how he treats cancer patients, achieving an astonishing reduction in the severity of side effects from conventional treatment. On the final day the well-known Swiss homeopath Heiner Frei shows how polarity analysis makes it possible to run a busy paediatric practice with 40 patients a day. Heidi Brand and Norbert Groeger introduce us to the remedy picture of the alga Chara intermedia, which has provoked a flurry of interest, proving especially popular for geriatric cases. Wrapping up is the Israeli homeopath Michal Yakir, who shows how childhood behavioural disturbances can be treated with the insights from her groundbreaking discoveries in the typology of plants.

Insects: Escaping the Earth by Peter Fraser

Fraser

 

 

 

First in the series 'Transformation between the Realms', this book examines the insect group of remedies. Comparisons with other groups are made, birds for example, which are sometimes extremely subtle but nevertheless clear.
"It become obvious that there is a world of remedies out there, which we have been missing (800,000 known insect species) and we need many more provings if we are to properly utilise this source." T.Burchill (The Homeopath)

The insects are the largest and most important class of the animal kingdom. They are central to all aspects of life on Earth being major forces in both the creation and destruction of life. In spite of this importance they have not yet had a significant role in homœopathy. In the last decade a dozen new Insect provings have opened up the remedy pictures and given us an insight into the properties of the group as a whole. The issues of the Insects correspond to those of the modern world and modern disease yet they are still little understood and considerably underused.
This is the first study of the known Insect remedies and it outlines the features that are common to the whole group and the often subtle distinctions that differentiate between them.

Transformation between the Realms
The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members. Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spiders: Suspended between Earth and Sky by Peter Fraser

fraser

 

 

 

 

Another episode in Fraser's series 'Transformation between the Realms'. This book examines the spider remedies, which Fraser argues need an "extremely precise and careful differentiation", if one wants to be successful in one's prescribing. The book offers a detailed picture of the known spiders and their differentiating features.

There are a large number of Spider Remedies that have been proved and are now available and it is often difficult to differentiate between them. With the Spider Remedies the need for extremely precise and careful differentiation seems to be even more important than it is with other remedies. When a Spider Remedy is called for, those that are not exactly correct will often have very little or no significant effect and only the one that is indicated will be effective.
This book includes an understanding of the general Spider picture that will show the need for a Spider Remedy. It also includes a detailed picture of the known Spiders and their distinguishing features which can be used to differentiate between them.

Transformation between the Realms
The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members. Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Boericke Pocket manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica and Repertory *New edition*

Boericke

 

 

This classic manual, combining both Materia Medica and Repertory,  has justifiably been the most popular homeopathic reference work in the world for decades. Within a single compact volume, it has offered unrivalled coverage, full yet concise, of a very wide range of remedies, including both polychrests and a substantial number of rare and lesser-known substances.
This new edition is both the most comprehensive version of the book. It has also been revised and expanded to meet the needs of the modern homeopathic community.
All the minor remedies originally mentioned either in the appendices or within the text for other remedies have been included in alphabetical order in the main Materia Medica section. They are clearly marked with an asterisk, enabling readers to locate this information quickly and easily for the first time. Valuable notes on remedy names and identities have been added, including  modern botanical, zoological and chemical nomenclature and classification. A handy Remedy Index incorporates both scientific and common names, and a separate list of Plant Families offers a useful summary for relevant entries.

More than 50 important new remedies have been added, reflecting the discoveries of leading homeopaths of our generation such as Rajan Sankaran, Jan Scholten, Massimo Mangialavori, and Louis Klein. Bringing the total number of remedies to over 1,200, these are marked with a ‘+’ sign for readers’ convenience. Furthermore, new details of the colour preferences for almost 800 remedies are included. Unavailable anywhere else in this form, these alone make the book unique.

For the Repertory, the content has been preserved, complete with Repertory Index and Therapeutic Index. However, the rather idiosyncratic arrangement of rubrics and sections has been streamlined to match the more familiar structure and sequence used in The Complete Repertory. Some minor adjustments to rubric wording have also been made to help readers access symptoms more easily.

Blending the best of established knowledge and up-to-date insights, this represents an ideal reference work with a special extra flair!
