  • The History of Homeopathy

    Presenter: Sussanna Czeranko, ND, BBE
    Original Date: March 19, 2016

    The histories that Homeopathy and Naturopathy share are remarkably intertwined. It is not surprising that a common question we encounter as practicing Naturopaths is the following: what is the difference between Homeopathy and Naturopathy? The answer has a short and long version. Dr. Czeranko explores the historical significance of these two distinct healing professions (medical systems) with the goal of appreciating more fully the wisdom, legacy of practice and guidelines of those who left their finger prints behind for us to share. To demystify and unravel our history, Dr. Czeranko explores how the similarities between Naturopathy and Homeopathy help us to understand how to direct their respective futures.

  • An Inadequately Proven Rx Helps Differentiate Between "Over-achievers”

    Presenter: Tim Shannon, ND
    Original Date: March 19, 2016

    Given the immense diversity of homeopathic medicines available, it makes sense to learn to differentiate between patients that often present with similar pathogenic patterns. Dr. Shannon shares his experience on this common class of patients and why it makes sense for doctors to learn and expand their differential of these patient types. Dr. Shannon uses a few cases (with follow-up) to illustrate the template, and help participants work through and learn the differential. The goal of this presentation is to help orient participants to this important and common differential of homeopathic medicines. Following this presentation, participants should be empowered to go out into practice and more effectively help patients with these challenging issues.

    Case Presentations

    Presenter: Matthew Zorn, ND
    Original Date: March 19, 2016

    The expression of physical signs and symptoms have always been a hallmark of homeopathy. In more recent decades mental symptoms, temperament, and 'constitution' in case taking have been greatly emphasized. These case presentations take a critical look at the importance of taking complete physical symptoms to arrive at the similimum for a given case.

  • Detoxification and Drainage

    Presenter: David Riley, MD
    Original Date: March 19, 2016

    The extracellular matrix—the ground regulation—was first described in 1953 by Alfred Pischinger in Austria. It states that the body’s functional unit of organ cells interacts as a system with the extracellular space called the extracellular matrix to support detoxification and drainage. Homeopathy has a long history of direct and indirect detoxification related to specific homeopathic remedies, homeopathic aggravations and the concept of removing obstacles to cure

  • The Homeopathic Pharmacopeia and the Regulatory Framework

    Presenter: Eric Foxman, RPh
    Original Date: March 20, 2016

    In this course, Foxman provides an overview of the regulatory framework and the roles the FDA, the FTC, and state Licensing Boards play in the practitioners use of homeopathic drug products. He also reviews the uncommon role the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia plays in the regulatory framework for homeopathic medicines. Viewers get a glimpse inside the HPUS and see what kind of information it contains and how any useful details affect the practice of homeopathic medicines. 

    Finally, Foxman addresses some of the issues that practitioners need to be aware of regarding homeopathic drug products (e.g. OTC attenuations, nosodes, imprinting, compounding) as well as quality concerns that should influence your choices of recommended product lines for your patients to use.  If you have ever considered a private label line or stocking products in your practice, these are all matters of great importance that are all too often ignored at the risk of putting poor quality products in your patients’ hands.

  • Dying in Oregon: Ethics, Homeopathy and Palliative Care

    Presenter: Ian Luepker, ND, DHANP
    Original Date: March 20, 2016

    In 1945, most people died at home, in 1980 only 17% did. Modern medicine has increased life expectancy, but has quality of life kept pace? How and when do we make the decision to switch from “cure to care?” What are the ethical considerations around having end of life (EOL) conversations with our patients? What is homeopathy’s role in palliation? How should “incurable” cases be approached, and what remedies are often useful for the dying? The Death with Dignity Act, passed in 1997, makes Oregon a unique state. This presentation covers ethical considerations differentiating between physician assisted suicide and euthanasia.

  • "Roots” Homeopathy – Discovering and Reclaiming the Roots of Our Discipline

    Presenter: Will Taylor, MD
    Original Date: March 20, 2016

    In the early years of the 19th century, Samuel Hahnemann proposed a radical revision of medical philosophy and practice, based on an evidence-based approach, to replace the dogmatic medical philosophy & methods of practice of the “old school” medicine of his day. Homeopathic medicine today is most often presented from revisionist perspectives, often by charismatic teachers presenting doctrinal views centered around their proprietary introductions, many of these quite divergent from the insights collected by Hahnemann in the early 19th century. Tensions within the greater homeopathic community have developed around apparent doctrinal conflicts between these revisionist approaches and “old guard” practitioners, who have often been perceived as clinging to conservative doctrine & resisting innovation. In this presentation Dr. Taylor explores what what he prefers to call “roots” homeopathy, looking carefully at the foundational work contributed by Hahnemann and his close colleagues in attempting to revolutionize the medicine of his day, to provide a foundation upon which we can truly build a modern system of practice fully consistent with his vision
