Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

What you need to know about our program.

in What format is this course delivered?

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.

what kind of outside certification do you offer?

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.

Why is tuition so low compared to other programs?

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!

what's the difference between certification and licensure?

Certification confirms your skills in homeopathy, and is available at three different levels in our program.

Certification and licensing 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.

i am still confused about the mixed messages i get from different homeopathic organizations. What should I do?

What about the legalities of practicing homeopathy in my state?

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.

How is classical homeopathy which is taught in this program different from all the stuff i read about on social media?

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.
