Homeopathic Case-Taking and Case Review

Homeopathic Case-Taking and Case Review


Homeopathy stands as one of the most curative modalities of medicine that exist, yet it can be quite challenging to learn. There are thousands of remedies to choose from and it takes a skilled homeopath to recognize what symptom information is relevant in order to find the ‘similimum’, the correct remedy. With decades of experience and gained expertise in the field of homeopathy, Dr. Elmore presents seven successful cases in this online course and touches upon all important aspects of case-taking.

Dr. Elmore shares the background of each case in detail and describes what information is pertinent and important to each remedy picture. Along the way, he explains how to best navigate taking a case with important questions that should always be asked. He reveals the chosen remedies with potency and teaches specific indications and remedy pictures for 5 unique remedies. Two of the five remedies are represented by two cases each, so the similarities and differences between these cases are discussed. Furthermore, Dr. Elmore analyzes each remedy based upon its particular miasm and touches upon miasmatic prescribing.

This is an excellent class for both new and advanced homeopathic practitioners alike!
