I've finished the video cases - they were great, I learned so much and Monica was such a positive resource. I really felt she cared about how I was doing and guided me without making me feel incompetent.

As Voltaire said “with great privilege comes great responsibility”. I... Read More

"The more you learn in homeopathy, the more you discover there is to learn. I was approaching the end of my final year of homeopathic education, and as much as I had learned, I was eager to maintain my momentum, extend my learning and application of this powerful medicine, and... Read More
"I sooo enjoyed Kim's class. He took a dry insipid subject and made it very very interesting. He is a wonderful teacher. I enjoyed it a lot and I will have to review it a few times to catch all the little pearls he shared. Thank you again for the wonderful class. Sincerely, Cristina."
This is my testimony about the live classes at CCHM. Date: 8-15-19 My first experience with homeopathy was the immediate eradication of mastitis. Then I took our 5 kids. I felt called to homeopathy to share healing that I had experienced and tell my fellow man, woman and child about... Read More
By Sumera A., Second Year CCHM Student 2017-2018
My journey of becoming a homeopath started two years ago. This summer I finished my second year of the in school diploma program. The challenges I overcame in last two years were nothing compared to my achievements. I am proud to be a part of the CCHM community where we learn from a great group of mentors. I have always wondered if there are other mentors in the homeopathy world that are as experienced as the ones we have. Each lecture opened new horizons of knowledge and gave me new perspectives about disease and health. I have known for a very long time that homeopathy works, but studying at CCHM took me from knowing to believing in the wonders of homeopathy.
Externship and internship clinics are an important part of the curriculum at CCHM. Our exposure to the outside world starts during the second year of the program when we see patients in a clinical setting with Dr. Kellerstein. The first few consults were very confusing but the key is to hang in there even if you don’t understand anything. I learned that asking questions and giving your opinion was important. Sharing your thoughts can help the teacher understand how you are processing information. A little guidance can take you a long way. I tried following given guidelines in the curriculum religiously. I continuously worked on making my case-taking better by trying different methods of data collection and templates, always remembering to stay within the guidelines. With another year of school and a whole life of learning ahead of me, I am confident that I will improve in all the skills needed to make a difference in the world with homeopathy.
It is always difficult to have new patients, but it’s like a boulder rolling down the hill. You have to push hard to make it move, but once it starts rolling, nothing can stop it. Fortunately, finding externship patients was not a challenge for me. The most difficult part was bringing them to the same level of belief that I got from my mentors. It was made easy with the help of my externship supervisor who taught me how to look at a case and analyze the information. My focus was never in getting new patients, but to provide full care and attention to the ones who were willing to try homeopathy. They always appreciated the time I took to listen to their issues. I believe that good listeners make excellent homeopaths.
Starting with friends and family gave me the freedom of communication. I got weekly, sometimes daily, feedback from them that helped keep my patients on track and gave them the feeling of being cared for. In the beginning, I was very much focused on spending a certain amount of time with patients, but I soon realized that it was hindering my learning and making me less productive. I freed myself from the time restriction and focused on getting the information for the well being of my patients.
I am extremely grateful for the experiences I gained in just two years of learning, and also for having a very helpful, bright and kind group of classmates. I couldn’t have done anything without their support and non-judgemental opinions. I appreciated their warm welcomes and cheers every time I entered the class. I hope this bond between us grows stronger as we make our way through the final year of school. I am thankful for having a qualified and supportive administration at school who promptly resolved any issues that came up during the school year.
I look forward to being amazed in new ways during the final year of school. CCHM has exceeded my expectations in every way, and may it always succeed with flying colors. My best wishes to all those who are, or want to be, a part of the CCHM community.
