Read about Dr English's own introduction to homeopathy and his early training. You'll also find a remarkable interview he conducted across the centuries with Dr Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of modern homeopathy.
Learn homeopathy through suggestopedia
Practising homeopathy means both committing the facts about a remedy and its rubrics to memory and developing the deeper understanding through which the homeopath associates the patient’s history with the materia medica. Learning theory explains that memorising information happens in the left-hand side of the brain, whereas associating these facts with the patient’s history is a right-brain process. The empathetic understanding of a patient’s constitutional ‘essence’ is also a right-brain skill. Dr English’s materials use right-brained learning methods to develop the skills of association and empathy and also to boost students’ powers of memorising materia medica.
My introduction to homeopathy
In the early 1960s I was Medical Registrar at Salisbury General Hospital - now a block of flats. My career plan at that time was to progress in hospital medicine and become a consultant. I had a young family of five children. I was first introduced to homeopathy when two of my children became acutely ill.
Last week I imagined the conversation I would like to have with Dr Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), the originator of the system of modern homeopathy. This week the tables are turned and Dr Hahnemann asks me about homeopathy in the twenty-first century.
