Frequently Asked Questions

Our distance learning program is a skillfully prepared, systematized course of study that was developed over many years. It is designed to make the profound principles of homeopathy fun to learn and accessible.
At the core of each of our learning modules 1-5 is almost 30 hours of MP3 audio classes, recorded in their entirety and complete with lectures, activities, and discussions. A workbook accompanies each session as well, so you listen to the class as you follow along in the workbook. You will receive these materials as electronic files, or you can pay an additional fee for hard copies.
This format gives you the best opportunity for successful distance learning, as it is almost like being in a live class. You can take the program at your own pace, under the guidance of an experienced clinician/instructor.
Module Six is in multimedia format, and Module Seven and the Clinical module are both mp4 video.
Our complete program prepares you for registration with the North American Society of Homeopaths (NASH), an independent national organization devoted to maintaining high standards of homeopathy and representing professional homeopaths since 1990.
We keep overhead low and keep things simple so that we can focus our energies on our students. We don’t splurge on fancy offices and advertising and we never had a business plan — our school evolved and grew naturally from the start, and it still does. We have kept our tuition reasonably priced in the hopes that homeopathic education will stay accessible to everyone who feels drawn to this noble healing art. We have been around since 1997 and have many happy grads. We hope you can join us!
Certification confirms your skills in homeopathy, and is available at three different levels in our program.
Certification and licensing are NOT the same thing. A certificate issued by any organization in the US doesn’t change your legal status as a practitioner in any way. Only state governments issue licenses, and there are no licenses for homeopathy in most states. Certification validates your homeopathic skills and is valuable ONLY for this reason.
Our director, Willa Keizer, sat on the CHC board for 10+ years but no longer supports their mission, as they have made homeopathic education unaffordable with excessive rules and regulations. You can clearly see this for yourself when looking at the wide differences in tuition.
You can still become registered with NASH through their competency review.

Legalities regarding the practice of homeopathy vary from state to state. Oklahoma, Idaho, Minnesota, Rhode Island, California, Louisiana, New Mexico, Arizona (limited exemption for homeopaths only), Colorado, Nevada, and Maine have “safe harbor” health freedom laws protecting the practice of homeopathy by unlicensed practitioners. Each state's law is written differently.
Fifteen additional states have introduced similar legislation within the past ten years. More states are preparing to do so in the future. To find out details about the situation in your own state please go to the Health Freedom Website.

These days, there is so much stuff posted on social media that calls itself “homeopathy”. In our program, we teach classical homeopathy as defined by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in 1810.
Starting at the beginning of the Basic program, we study the Organon in detail, paragraph by paragraph, so that by the end of your studies, you will know how to practice according to the clear principles outlined by Hahnemann. You will be able to join the ranks of classical homeopaths who have been practicing this way for over 200 years.

These days, some homeopathic schools and organizations are using fear of the government, and disgust with mainstream medicine to get potential students to buy courses or take political action.
We believe that all forms of medicine have their place and can be useful at the right time. As a grandmother and as a former homeschooling mom, I know that real learning occurs when you feel happy, supported, and cared for. That's why we offer you care and support in this program.
Being gentle and supportive is the homeopathic approach in both medicine and life!"

We know how important connecting with teachers and other students is. Many students want support and connection when they are doing online studies.
We offer weekly meetings beginning in module one. They are on Fridays at 9 AM Pacific time, and are led by an experienced study group leader.
Students find these meeting to be interesting and fun, and friendships develop. You can watch the recording later if you can't make it.
The weekly study group is geared to module one studies, but occasionally more advanced students join as well to refresh their module one knowledge.
There is also a monthly homeopathy compassion meeting for everyone on the first Thursday of the month at 3 PM Pacific time, as well as an email list of all students with discussions and announcements of interest to everyone.
This teaching clinic meets Mondays at 1 PM, but you can watch the recordings later if you need to. It doesn't meet every Monday but goes in a seasonal series of 5 Mondays per quarter.
