I would have loved to meet you there !! My wife and I just came back yesterday from the island of Alonissos where we attended the Complete teaching (2nd year out of 3).
We had there 2 weeks (115 hours all together) of hard training with Jorgos Kavouras (a Greek-German MD) and every day live cases or live follow ups by George Vithoulkas himself. It was fantastic and we are looking forward to attending the 3rd and last year of training next in July 2010. The last days of next year will be exam days for us, where we will have to answer questions about the Organon, 2nd prescription, and of course remedies (We will have to know 160 remedies by heart).
For those who are interested, The International Academy of Classical Homeopathy should be starting distance e-learning via Internet at the end of 2009. Have a look at the Vithoulkas site from time to time, listen to some of the on-line Vithoulkas lectures on remedies, and you will have an outlook of what kind of teaching we have every year in Alonissos. www.vithoulkas.com
Enjoy this site.
All the best,

More than 150000 patients have been cured and benefited by him . Let's know him and his works better than before .Let's visit him at www.vithoulkas.com

The physician is likewise a preserver of health if he knows the things that disturb it , that cause and sustain illness , and if he knows how to remove them from healthy people .

No doubt that "Organon" is one of the finest book giving us directions for the successful understanding and giving guidence to practice true homeopathy. I am sad and surprised that many practicing homeopaths do not have the deep knowledge of this book. I first studied Organon of Medicine in 1967-68 in my National Homeopathic Medical College, Lucknow-India, but got the real taste and knowledge during my tenure as a lecturer of Organon of Organon and philosophy (1977-1987), where I had the opportunity to prepare lectures in depth of this subject. Dr James Tyler Kent's Philosophy , Dr Jhar's 40 years Practice and Dr Hahnemann's Chronic Disease are other books helped me to understand homeopathy thoroughly. The best understanding and confidence comes after the successful application of homeopathy and getting satisfactory results.
In any case the true homeopathy works on three main principles, which are as follows;
1. Law of similimum, which means that for a prefect cure, we need to find a homeopathic remedy, which covers the totality or majority of the symptoms in each individual case, We should also need an appropriate potency, suitable for the condition of disease or pathology. Then we should consider the doses as well.
2. Single remedy, this means one homeopathic remedy should be uded at one time. The one which is covering the totality or majority of symptoms. I have seen some homeopaths using more than one remedies at a time to treat a case, which is not allowed with homeopathy.
If needed, then we can use second remedy (complementary)or a remedy that follows well, again as single if the remaining symptoms requires it. (second prescription)
3. Minimum doses, this means only the smallest (potentised)required number of doses should be given to allow the Primary action , which is the result of the administration of a perfect selection of remedy and potency, such as in cases of Lachesis or Ornithogallum etc. After the primary action , our vital force produces the reaction to it thus leading to a cure,(Secondary action)
Please note that Homeopathy never fails, but we fails, only because of not following the true discovery done by Dr Hahnemann, who confirmed again and again that if one follows the true principle of homeopathy laid down in Organon, there will be no failures.
So, we can see Homeopathy is a perfect natural science and very easy to understand and at one time Hahnemann said" Homeopathy is easy, as easy as a line is drawn between two given points", which explains itself.
I am thankful to all my teachers, who gave me the true knowledge of homeopathy and I feel great satisfaction helping many and continuing the Mission of Hahnemann with the use of this divine natural and scientific medical science.
With best wishes to all.

Delete Comment Chapter 1 : Medicine and Physician
The physician's highest calling ,his only calling ,is to make sick people healthy -to heal ,as it is termed .
The highest ideal of therapy is to restore health rapidly ,gently ,permanently ;to remove and destroy the whole disease in the shortest ,least harmful way ,according to clearly comprehensive principles .
If the physician clearly perceives what has to be cured in disease ,i.e. in each individual case of disease (knowledge of the disease ),
If he clearly perceives what it is in medicines which heals i.e. in each individual medicine (knowledge of medicinal powers),
If he applies in accordance with well-defined principles what is curative in medicines to what he has clearly recognized to be pathological in the patient ,so that cure follows ,i.e.if he knows in each particular case how to apply the remedy most appropriate by its character (selection of the remedy ) ,prepare it exactly as required and give it in the right amount (the correct dose) ,and repeat the dose exactly when required ,and ,lastly ,if in each case he knows the obstacles to cure and how to remove them ,so that recovery is permanent ,
THEN he knows how to treat thoroughly and efficasiously ,and is a true physician .

Hi "It (Organon) was first published in 1810 ,in Kothen ,Germany . Hahnemann published five editions of the work during his lifetime and completed the manuscript of the sixth and final edition in 1842 , the year before he died at the age of eighty-eight .This last edition was not published until 1921 ".

Dear Friends around the world
Hi "Samuel Hahnemann's Organon of Medicine clearly and completely states , for the first time in history , the true nature of health and disease , the natural principle of cure ,and the system of medical therapy based on these principles which we know as homeopathy . It has remained until today the one essential cornerstone of homeopathy , the ultimate authority on its doctorine and practice . Everything ever written on homeopathy proceeds from it ".

Dear Noori ~ Bravo for taking leadership position and creating this group. Even though I have joined, I may just be an observer for some time. My hands are full of all the work for this site. I may even have to stop taking clients now.
Wishing you all the best!
