There and Back Again

From Monica Frohmann, CCHM Lecturer 

In July of 2017 I moved to Austria with my family and 3 dogs, 3 cats 3 horses and a pet bunny! The move went smoothly and after a year of house renovations, building fences for horses and organizing things for all the pets, we’re finally settled in. My practice has been a bit of a different story. In Austria you are only allowed to practice homeopathy if you are a medical doctor. It is not because the doctors place that much value on homeopathy, it is simply because the law states that nobody is allowed to perform a therapy on a person (or animal), unless they are an MD. Even the MD’s need an additional 3 year education in homeopathy to practice it here. In this country it is a dying art unfortunately, because few doctors have the enthusiasm to incite interest in this additional education. Most of the good homeopaths are nearing retirement age here.

There are professions such as massage therapy, recognized by the law, as a separate profession, but homeopathy is not one of them. The concern about practicing any other type of therapy, is whether or not the practitioner will recognize if the patient is in need of urgent care. So…. after long last and many, many phone calls and meetings, I have received special approval to practice “under” a medical doctor. This means that I see my patients as I normally would, and at the end of the appointment, the patient sees the doctor for 3 minutes to confirm that they will live another day! Seems ridiculous, but this is truly what it is.

For those of you who know me, you know that it is hard for me NOT to be a homeopath. Not just at work, but pretty much all the time. Luckily, since having moved, I’ve been able to continue to supervise the distance education students for CCHM and treat my animal patients over Skype. I have begun to build an on-line practice here as well. But I miss it nonetheless! So when Joyce told me I could come teach for a weekend I jumped at the chance! I flew in on Thursday, saw patients Friday, taught all day Saturday and Sunday, saw some more patients on Monday and by the following Thursday I was on a plane again.

It was so fulfilling to be in front of a group of homeopaths again. It invigorated me and made me realize how much I miss it. I am delighted to have been asked to come back again in the next school year (maybe a bit more than once) and look forward to continue to connect with all of you.
