    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to anyone desiring to learn more about Homeopathic medicine. The book selected for this course is easy to read and very informative. The instructor, Dr. Kereivesky is an excellent educator and is helpful in the learning process. Topics covered in this course include the history of homeopathic medicine as well as the current state of homeopathy in the 21st century. You will be pleasantly surprised by what you learn in this course!

    Course highlights:

    The most important thing I learned in this course is the basic principle of homeopathic medicine. The practice dates back to the founding father Samuel Hahnemann, a German physician that noted "like treats like." This is the entire basis of the practice. He observed the body's response to an illness was more effectively treated if the patient was given medicine that produced similar symptoms in a healthy person. He performed a series of "provings" in which healthy volunteers took substances to record the symptoms they produced. Once recorded, he could treat an illness with substances that produced a similar reaction. For instance, if a patient's illness conjured symptoms of a dry cough, the homeopathic physician would treat the patient with a substance that also produced a dry cough. The science behind this method is not precise, it takes a skilled doctor to interpret and treat a person's symptoms. The homeopathic physician's objective is to initiate the body's immune system into healing the body. Rather than suppressing symptoms, the homeopathic physician seeks to encourage the body to rid itself of disease. Homeopathic medicine is an interesting field of study. There is much to learn about homeopathy and I am grateful to of had an introductory course on the subject!

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to be successful in this course you must read the book. It's a small book, with only 250 pages. It's worth reading until the end, even if the course doesn't require the reading. Additionally, a successful student interacts with other students in the classroom and discusses the subject. We only truly learn something when we are able to share our ideas and understanding with others. Furthermore, your classmates are likely to teach you something you had not learned!

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class was fascinating. It showed me how much we really do not know about healers and healiing. My teacher Dr. Clements is a naturopathic doctor who inspired me to move forward with a medical degree.

    Course highlights:

    Healing takes time. The body is symptomatic only when it is stressed otherwise it maintains homeostasis. We should all be cognizant of this and remember as health care professionals that each patient is an individual with individual needs.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Keep and open mind and read. There is so much information available,both pro and con and both views are important.
