Join a Study Group
NCH is excited to announce that we are working to revitalize our Affiliated Study Group program. Study groups offer an in-person, peer-to-peer learning experience in a person’s home, local library, church or business. At this time, there seem to be three natural types of groups:
  • Beginner groups
  • Advanced groups
  • Practitioner groups
Participants find these in-person study groups quite educational and enjoyable while making strong connections with like-minded individuals in their communities.
If you are interested in leading or participating in an NCH Affiliated Study Group, please complete the short questionnaire below.

Meet NCH Member, Cash Leo
How did you discover homeopathy and what made you want to become a practitioner?
I first discovered homeopathy about ten years ago when a friend handed me a vial of Belladonna for an acute condition. Two years later I was expecting my firstborn, and sought out a homeopathic pediatrician in Los Angeles - Lauren Feder, MD – author of
Natural Baby and Childcare
,
The Parents' Concise Guide to Childhood Vaccinations
and also
Natural Pregnancy
. She encouraged my interest in homeopathy, and I devoured her books and memorized the small Materia Medica in her books within a couple days. A few months later, my infant daughter had an acute condition. I took her to Dr. Feder and said: “
I think she needs Allium Cepa (am I saying that right?) – What do you think
?” She smiled at me and said, “
Yes she does!”
 I gave my child Allium cepa, and she was completely well the very next day. It was then that I truly fell in love with the healing power of homeopathy and began to study whatever homeopathic literature I could get my hands on. Two years later I moved to the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas and was devastated to find that there was not another homeopathic practitioner within 400 miles of my new home unless I crossed the Mexican border. So, I began my formal education in classical homeopathy with George Vithoulkas through the International Academy of Homeopathy’s distance learning program, and also began to travel to Alonissos, Greece for the IACH summer seminars each year

Homeopathy for Health in Africa
Tina Quirk, our NCH president-elect, has traveled to Moshi, Tanzania to volunteer at Homeopathy for Health in Africa, a non-profit organization set up by Jeremy Sherr to treat AIDS patients with classical homeopathy. About to mark its 10th year, HHA has volunteer homeopaths from around the world going to 15 outreach clinics and centers. The clinics are located in rural community centers, residents' porches, sitting rooms, orphanages, a school for the deaf, a Maasai village, and two hospitals. Anchored by Jane Davy, clinic administrator, and frequent volunteer Rebecca Stirling, these clinics treat approximately 200 patients/month and include both AIDS and other health conditions. Tina is spending two months volunteering and enjoying the beauty and friendliness of Tanzania.
Oscillococcinum for influenza treatment
In 2012, the three European researchers reviewed three randomized controlled double blinded studies completed between 1988 and 1998 with over a total of 1000 patients. All studied showed clinical improvement in flu like symptoms using Oscillococcinum with one study showing statistical significant improvement.

Homeopathic treatment during menopause
Many women want to know about ways of dealing with uncomfortable symptoms associated with going through the menopause. Homeopathic treatment is one form of therapy which can be used during the menopause, which takes into account both the physical symptoms and the emotional responses. Homeopathic treatment can be used as an alternative to treatment with hormone replacement therapy (HRT), or alongside HRT, in the management of menopausal symptoms. Also, the current trend of promoting HRT is questioned in this article.

Rapid Response Volunteers Needed
Americans for Homeopathy Choice
,
 
a nonprofit advocacy organization dedicated to safeguarding the freedom to choose homeopathic remedies for all Americans, is creating a Homeopathy Action Team to proactively defend homeopathy in the media. Your knowledge and experience could help in the fight to keep homeopathy available to all who want it. The purpose of the team is to lay the groundwork for advocates and spokespersons to respond to emerging developments if/when a need arises.

The goal of Americans for Homeopathy Choice is to have professional homeopaths and consumers available in all 50 states. If you want to explore the possibility of becoming a member of the Homeopathy Action Team, 
please contact AHC
 
and provide the best phone number to reach you; please include where you live (City/State).

Americans for Homeopathy Choice plans to organize a conference call to provide further information, answer questions, and discuss next steps. Training will be provided on how to deal with the media and background material on emerging issues.

If you are a professional homeopath and have clients who would be good candidates for being a consumer advocate, please discuss this possibility with them and share the link for volunteering.
