Choosing A Career in Homeopathy: Reflections from Our May 31st Event with Dr. Joseph Kellerstein

How often does a prospective student get the opportunity to learn what skills they require in order to be successful in practice? 

On May 31st, a group of people interested in studying Homeopathy had the privilege of hearing world-renowned Homeopath, Dr. Joseph Kellerstein, speak about his love for Homeopathy. Dr. Kellerstein focussed his talk on why an education in Hahnemannian Homeopathy is important as a basis for a Homeopathic career.  He did this by giving context about the major trends in medicine during Hahnemann’s time.  In the 18thcentury, there were two major schools of thought in medicine.  The first was known as Rationalism.  They presented themselves as being practical but often tried to speculate about the inner workings of the human body by developing unproven theories. 

The second was Empiricism.  Empiricism relies on obtaining knowledge through experience and unbiased observation.  Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, came from this tradition.  He wanted a system of medicine free of speculation and unchallenged theories that was congruent with nature.

Sounds great doesn’t it?  A system of medicine based on experience.  Yet, even from the earliest days of Homeopathy, there were efforts to simplify it or to mix Homeopathic methods with other methods.  These efforts continue to the present day.  There continue to be many very charismatic teachers that present alluring ideas that they claim are Homeopathy.  Currently, most students of Homeopathy are not able to make the distinction between Hahnemannian or Pure Homeopathy and these modern methods.

The most unfortunate part of these attempts to simplify Homeopathy is that the majority of Homeopaths in the world have not received a thorough education in the Homeopathy of Hahnemann.  In the history of Homeopathy, the practitioners who most closely followed Hahnemann were those who had the greatest rates of success.  Homeopaths such as Adolph Lippe had a 100% cure rate in an era ravaged by serious infectious epidemics such as Cholera, Scarlet Fever.  I could also add Constantine Hering, Boenninghausen, Guernsey and E.B. Nash to this list.

At the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine, we want all of our students to achieve this kind of clinical success.  It is only by attaining a deep and profound understanding of pure Homeopathy, that you can do this.  We are the only school in Canada that teaches Hahnemannian Homeopathy as the focus of our education program.  Find out why CCHM has graduated more practicing Homeopaths than any other school!
