The course is aimed at students of homeopathy who have some background in the life sciences or have studied anatomy and physiology at some level. The course explores the absolutely fundamental building blocks for the creation of a fully-functioning, energetic Human Being and unravels the journey from conception through birth to childhood and adolescence. It brings together much of the necessary information that is often scattered throughout the literature.
The second part of the course is a more traditional exploration of the mature Human Being slipping into disease states but retains the homeopathic approach to the whole person. Along the way the course also looks at how homeopaths can work alone or alongside other health professionals to provide a truly profound healthcare system for patients.
At the end of the course you will have a beautiful book or file filled with wonderfully useful information. You will also know your way around the textbooks so that you are never at a loss when a patient consults you with unusual pathology. On top of all of this you are sure to appreciate just how marvelous the Human Body is!
The course can be taken on its own, but the Anatomy & Physiology Course for homeopaths provides the ideal deal study necessary before starting the Pathology & Disease Course for homeopaths.
The course is carried out by home study, and takes about 175 - 200 hours to complete. There is no strict timetable for the completion of the course - you work through the learning materials at your own pace. Most students complete the course within a year but we give you a 2 year study period, even after that you can re-enrol 12 months at a time for a small admin fee.
