Dear Students and perspective Students of Homeopathy,
I am sure you all know that there are different ways of applying homeopathy, but Hahnemann has taught only one way, and it is obvious that he knew better than anybody else how to apply it correctly : one must try to find the unique homeopathic remedy that fits the individual case.
In 1996, Prof. Vithoulkas was honored with the Right Livelihood Award (also known as Alternative Nobel Prize, www.rightlivelihood.org) “…for his outstanding contribution to the revival of homeopathic knowledge and the training of homeopaths to the highest standards”.
When I wanted to become a homeopath at age 55 after years of allopathic nursing and medical practice as a nurse practitioner, I reached out to a friend who studied with George Vithoulkas in the 1990s. I looked at other programs offered in the United States and other countries, but I decided to sign up for the E-learning Course after reading a couple of George’s books. In retrospect, I know my decision was correct. The E-learning Course has given me the fundamental and practical tools and knowledge to confidently practice homeopathy. It is ACHENA-certified, so I was able to sit for its homeopathic certification examination. I took advantage of visiting Greece and meeting Professor Vithoulkas and other very experienced homeopaths from around the world. I now feel part of the homeopathic world community. Most of all, the dedication from the instructors of the E-learning Course was remarkable. For three years, Cristina Horvath was always there to give class or meet individually with me to review cases. Although I am now classically trained as a homeopath by the expert teachings of Vithoulkas, Horvath is also my teacher. She always answered my questions or clarified what was hard to understand. Also, Cash Leo provided valuable additional education on subjects pertinent for review of the National Certification Exam. I tip my hat to all who have designed such a thorough educational program. Lastly, I am honored to be a student of George Vithoulkas.
After many years of using homeopathy on myself, I decided that I wanted to truly learn this science to be able to help others. I spent several years researching and evaluating different schools in the US and abroad but had some concerns about the standard of homeopathic education. I was delighted when I found out that IACH offered a 3 year practitioner program in North America. I had considered the 2 year E-learning course but wanted a course that would prepare me for practice and give me the case taking experience I needed. The course was everything I hoped it would be and more! A comprehensive and solid foundation in Classical homeopathy – remedies, theory and remedy reactions – taught by Prof. George Vithoulkas, a living Master, with over 60 years of practical experience. Further, the level of education and guidance we received from our instructor, Cristina Horvath, was excellent. IACH makes you feel so supported to pursue Classical Homeopathy as a profession, practice correctly and succeed in helping to heal others and alleviate suffering.
IACH offers an excellent practitioner program. I am highly impressed with the quality of instruction and the amount of knowledge I gained from 200 years of homeopathic wisdom. I was able to successfully treat many cases during the program with proper guidance. The analysis of “Levels of Health” by Prof. Vithoulkas gives an added skillset to the contemporary homeopath who is faced with so many challenges. The E-Learning program is faithful to Hahnemann’s teachings but also provides additional perspectives on how to treat complex cases in the modern world. I highly recommend this program.
The E-Learning program in English is a very successful one. I highly recommend it to my friends and colleagues. IACH has great respect in the world community. You have done an excellent job in creating a real-world, useful program to create successful practitioners.
