A word from the Editor – Learning Homeopathy
Homeopathy has its own place in sick-care. It is not a substitute for, nor a superior form of treatment to other medical systems. It is a stand alone therapy that has the competence of impacting a diseased state of health gently, holistically and effectively.
As such its correct employment and application, in order to aid the sick in their recovery from illness, has to be taught precisely and comprehensively.
Students must learn of homeopathy the philosophy and principles which define the practice. They must internalize the underlying natural law and the principle of similarity and must apprehend the elements of totality and individuality. They must understand the essentials of provings that feed the Materia Medica, must comprehend the matter of potency and the curative action of the infinitesimal dose.
Equipped with thus acquired knowledge students should eventually be practitioners capable of employing this therapeutic art for the better of their patients, and in the spirit of its founding father.

* As yours truly, I am sharing some info on e-learning, an experience I much enjoyed while doing my MSc at UCLan. As a child I did not find this format very ‘prickly’ or exciting. There was only snail-mail back then, and being the only kid ‘in class’ was not much fun. Have a read here: E-learning – the convenient way to study?
