2013 Continuing Education Series

Reasons justifying the use of a homeopathic complex
remedy vs a single homeopathic remedy

presented by Jean Lacombe, DHom

3 consecutive weekly 2 hour sessions, held at 7:30 pm (EST) on Tuesday evenings starting
MARCH 26th until APRIL 9th, 2013.

The best and the most experienced homeopaths sometimes find themselves unable to prescribe a single remedy. Why is this?

Any homeopath or practitioner with a certain amount of experience comes to the conclusion at some point (as did Hahnemann) that, for multiple reasons, it is often difficult to access the characteristic, interesting and pertinent symptoms that lead the choice of THE single remedy. The prescription of the unique remedy is simply impossible without a totality of characteristic symptoms!
This is why numerous homeopaths and practitioners practicing classical homeopathy around the world, add the use of complex homeopathy to their therapeutic toolbox. Along with easy usage comes a remarkable effectiveness in their mode of action. What every therapist is searching for is results that satisfy the patient.


What is complex homeopathy?
It is a remedy, diluted and dynamized and formulated with several components having a synergistic action.
Therefore in a complex such as one for menopause, we might find several homeopathic remedies that are recognized for their action on heat flushes, perspiration, etc. that all aim at stimulating the defense mechanism by orientating it in the specific direction of the patient’s symptoms.
The biggest characteristic of complex homeopathy resides in its simplicity. Its effectiveness is based on the capacity of the therapist to recognize the “cause” of the problem being treated. Therefore, a complex chosen for liver drainage does not simply drain or detoxify the liver; it will also have an action on the psychological dimension of the patient, notably on his/her irritability. This is how a complex homeopathic remedy can treat both the symptom and the cause!
This seminar will consist of a revision of the homeopathic material medica with examples of complex remedies that have the capacity to improve or cure a dozen health problems that are frequently experienced by our patients. We will also look at the rules of thumb to prescribing in acute and chronic cases.

Time: 3 consecutive weeks 2 hour sessions, held at 7:30 pm (EST) / 4:30 (PST)

The Gastrointestinal Matrix
presented by Dr. Robin Di Pasquale, ND, RH (AHG)

April 20-21, 2013 (Sat.-Sun.)
Toronto, ON

In this two-day course, the many facets of health and disease will be woven back to the overall function of the gastrointestinal system.
Inherited patterns, lifestyle habits and choices, and developed belief systems are all expressed through how well the digestive system functions, and how this ripples its impact throughout all body systems. The way we live our lives on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels all contribute to overall digestion, assimilation, and elimination of food, but also of all interfaces with the world. Keeping this dynamic dance in balance will be explored through mindfulness, movement, and natural medicines. We will investigate and apply gemmotherapy, biotherapeutic drainage, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and nutrition as therapeutic allies.

Outline of topics to be explored:

1. Development of our relationship to food
2. A look at terrain and its many aspects
3. Detoxification/Drainage
a. Approaching detoxification, what does that mean
b. Homotoxicology – humoral and cellular, Dr. Reckeweg
4. Gut structure and function
a. A brief review of who does what and why and how
5. The gut and nourishment
a. Maldigestion and malabsorption
b. Sympathetic dominance
c. Bitter herbs
d. Digestive enzymes
6. Dysbiosis and probiotics
7. Gut tonicity, too tight, too loose
8. The gut and the nervous system
9. The gut and the immune system
a. Leaky gut
b. Allergies, the body burden
c. Autoimmune
10 The gut and its relation to skin health and disease
