Autism

pdf iconClassical Homeopathy and Autism

By Kate Hudson, BA, N.D.

Classical homeopathy has been used with some success to alleviate symptoms, both mental and physical, or to return to health individuals with autism. For many parents who have seen a large overall improvement in their autistic children, homeopathy has played a major role. Click here to download Classical Homeopathy and Autism

pdf iconAutism and Mother Connection

By Julia Bronfman BLA, DHom

An interesting phenomenon is taking place in the world of autism. Until quite recently, an extremely high percentage of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders) children were showing clear signs of heavy metal toxicity. Susceptible children, unable to detoxify, have held onto the lead, cadmium, antimony, arsenic, aluminum and mercury which they have been exposed to, whether it be from the mother’s amalgam fillings, or lead water pipes and paint dust (liberated during home renovations) or thimerosal in the childhood vaccines.

Branches of Medicine

pdf iconHomeopathy: a Branch of Western Medicine

by Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom Founder of the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy

There are important questions to be answered when one is considering homeopathy as a complement to conventional medicine. What is the difference between Homeopathy and what we call Western Medicine today? What are the advantages and limitations of each? Under what circumstances is it appropriate to use Homeopathy? How does Homeopathy compare with other “alternative” modalities such as Naturopathy? Click here to download Homeopathy: a Branch of Western Medicine

Homeopathic Case Taking

pdf iconThe Art and Science of Homeopathic Case Taking

by Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom, Founder of the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy

By allowing wonder to bubble up as science and scientists ponder life, they encounter the staggering mystery that is the existence of this world, a mystery that facts alone can never begin to fill. This is the experience of truly wise scientists. Click here to download The Art and Science of Homeopathic Case Taking

pdf iconHomeopathy: THE Medicine of the Third Millenium

by Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom, Founder of the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy

As a seamless integration of leading edge homeopathy and leading edge research begins to emerge, plausible explanations of its nature and actions begin to unfold. We will examine the principles laid out by Hahnemann first in the light of Quantum Physics and field theory, then Evolutionary theory and Holism, and finally, the most recent explanations as to the causes of chronic disease. Not only do these modern innovations support and further develop homeopathic principles, but they indicate the possible mechanisms through which homeopathy influences the healing response of living organisms.  Click here to download Homeopathy: THE Medicine of the Third Millenium

 

pdf iconBringing Homeopathy to New Depths

by Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom, Founder of the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy

Homeopathy is a growing concern; it is producing results in many areas of health and agriculture worldwide. Clinical experience demonstrates that a homeopathic session and remedy are not only able to relieve symptoms and to provoke a curative process, but that homeopathy actually assists in creating healthy relationships, feelings of usefulness, meaningfulness, and many other conventionally-proven key factors in healing, health and quality of life. Homeopathy opens the door to the spiritual dimension of the human being, now recognized as an essential part of the human experience, and the healing process  Click here to download Bringing Homeopathy to New Depths

 

pdf iconChelidonium Case of Hypertension and Cognitive Disability

by Adam Fiore, DHom, ND and Kate Hudson, BA, ND, DHom

In this case, we illustrate that what Hahnemann meant by the Totality of Symptoms, as described
in Aphorism 7, is readily achieved with a holistic understanding of the individual as a whole and
not as the sum of parts. When we are able to understand and perceive the whole dynamic
movement of an individual, we see all the parts fall into place and how they become an expression
of the inner disease and affection of the vital force. Click here to download “Chelidonium – Case of Hypertension and Cognitive Disability

 

pdf iconCase of Multiple Sclerosis and Trigeminal Neuralgia

by Kate Hudson, BA, ND, DHom, Christiane Magee, MICH student intern

The following case illustrates three progressively deeper levels of similimum, and the increased
effect of each subsequent level. Identifying the striving for an absolute is what led to a deeper level
of experience and more effective similimum. The final remedy would not have been found by the
Sensation Method as it is not in any of the usual plant sensation families.  Click here to download “Case of Multiple Sclerosis and Trigeminal Neuralgia

 

pdf iconScrophularia Nodosa Case of Irritable Bowel Disease

by Melissa Dair, BA,  ND, Dhom, Kate Hudson, BA, ND, DHom and Roberta Vienneau, MA, BA, Dhom

The following is a case write-up written by the student intern homeopath who took the case in the
supervised MICH Intern Clinic a few years ago (2011).
In each clinic case attending intern observers and the student intern homeopath enter into
dialogue. An experienced supervisor is present, but only intervenes when the process leaves the
framework of dialogue, to guide the students back into the process.  Click here to download ” Scrophularia Nodosa Case of Irritable Bowel Disease

 

pdf iconAranea Diadema Case of Epilepsy

by Melissa Dair, BA, ND, Dhom, Kate Hudson, BA, ND, DHom

In pediatric cases, we cannot always rely on the child being able to express their inner world in a
way that we can understand with words. It is therefore even more important that we enter into
the child’s world by fully embodying their unique perspective and experience from their point of
view.  Click here to download “Aranea Diadema Case of Epilepsy

Models for Holistic Medicine

pdf iconThe Noumedynamic Human: A New Holistic Medical Model

by Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom, Founder of the Montreal Institute of Classical Homeopathy

In this article I would like to illustrate how current perspectives in conventional medicine are moving towards a holistic model that supports the MICH understanding of pathogenesis. Perhaps even more importantly, is how these conventional perspectives are driving research towards discovering possible mechanisms by which homeopathic treatment affects the organism.

The MICH Method™

pdf iconThe MICH Method – Our MICH Experience

By Melissa Dair BA, ND, Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom and Carla Marcelis, Drs, ND, DHom

For many years, a group of us – practitioners and teachers – got together every month to look at cases. We were exploring holistic practice, which for us meant seeing the individual and his or her disease as a totality. This exploration was our effort to faithfully follow Hahnemann’s directive to find and address the “Totality of Symptoms” in every case, rather than prescribing on individual symptoms that are not connected. Our goal for each case was to find the core that connects the collection of symptoms as a complete whole. It was hard work. It is so much easier to gather symptoms and repertorize… but the results from prescribing this way are spotty at best. Click here to download the MICH Method

Research and Abstracts

pdf iconThe Evidence for Homeopathy

By Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom and Carla Marcelis, Drs, ND, DHom

Homeopathy is based on observation, provings and empirical laws. It is the only branch of western medicine to have such a solid foundation built on observation and understanding of fundamental principles. Review examples of clinical trial evidence, basic research evidence, support from scientists, governments and individuals worldwide in this extensive 42-page article.

pdf iconQuantum Bio Proceedings

By Judyann McNamara, MSc, ND, DHom

Hahnemann’s words have never shone as brightly as they do in the light of a quantum perspective. Novel facets of the Organon come to life and provide important insights about how to optimize the full potential of our homeopathic practice as well as conduct research congruent to the energetic level on which homeopathy operates. Click here to download Quantum Bio Proceedings
