Jan Scholten has been working as a homeopathic doctor ever since he completed his studies in 1985. He founded the Homeopathic Doctors Center in Utrecht, the Netherlands in 1988 where he continues to consult with patients. The Center has grown over the years and is now staffed by ten homeopaths.
In 1994, Scholten published “Homeopathy and Minerals” and a few years later “Homeopathy and the Elements.” In the latter, he put forward his theory that the homeopathic remedy picture of minerals can be understood by their position of row and column in the Mendelejev periodic table of elements. He proposed that the rows each have a specific theme and that the columns represent the development of that theme. This theory became widely accepted in the homeopathic world. In 2005, he published “Secret Lanthanides,” and made many previously unknown remedies accessible to homeopathy. These remedies have turned out to be important in addressing chronic diseases such as autoimmune disorders.
His most recent and most elaborate book yet, is “Wonderful Plants,” a 1000 page account of the taxonomy of plants and essences of plant families. The research and writing of these books is largely based on successful cases. Other writing includes the provings of remedies. “Sense Provings”, describing some 200 provings and “Kenton Provings,” a book on provings of 19 plant species in South Africa, bear witness to Scholten’s tireless dedication to his work. Besides writing, Jan Scholten lectures and gives seminars around the world.
Jan Scholten has also given his time to many non-profit causes. He founded Stichting Alonissos, a foundation for the promotion of homeopathy through publication of books and articles, promoting research, holding seminars and supporting clinics. He also initiated the international homeopathic internet journal, called “Interhomeopathy” and he has been working for the homeopathic teaching foundation SHO in the Netherlands. Between 2006 and 2009, Jan Scholten led a team of homeopathic doctors to do a study on the homeopathic remedy Iquilai for HIV/AIDS cases. This study was supported by the AIDS Remedy Fund.
We join the Dutch state and its citizens in thanking Jan Scholten for all that he has contributed to homeopathy and to health care.
