This year our Spring Cured Case Conference takes a look at the paradox of what unifies and what divides homeopaths professionally.  Since the resurrection of homeopathy in the 20th Century after practically being lost in the West, we have seen not only the comeback of the classical understanding of homeopathy, as elucidated by Samuel Hahnemann, but modern understandings of his insights and new methods to get the healing results he did.  There have been passionate proponents of the different methods and just-as-passionate disavowals of each method with a plea to return to the original teaching of Hahnemann.

Looking for the unifying truth that is at the heart of homeopathy, we can find what is timeless and unchanging:

Homeopathy is a philosophy of healing based on the observation that “likes heal likes.”

The master, Samuel Hahnemann, got results by observing his patients carefully,using the totality of symptoms to find one "similar" remedy, (called the simillimum)and giving it in the minimum dose.

In this seminar we will explore several different paths to the simillimum.  These are the different methods that have arisen in the last century to see into the heart of healing so that “the reasoning spirit who inhabits the organism can freely use the healthy living instrument to reach the lofty goal of human existence.” (Aphorism 9) 

We are fortunate to have some very seasoned homeopaths right here in the Northwest, all of whom have been practicing homeopathy for over 20 years.  They come together to show their experience and insights through 4 different perspectives to find the holy grail:  that one remedy that sets everything right.

Our presenters:

Steve Olsen has been in full time practice for 25 years.  Presently he is a teacher at Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine. He calls himself a Hahnemannian traditionalist of classical homeopathy.

Some of the works he has published:
NPLEX Homeopathic Materia Medica Study Guide
Arbor Medica Volume I and II;
 
The Science of Homeopathy, Clinical Studies, Hormesis, Epigenetics and How to Diagnose and Treat Epimutations

Homeopathy – Nature’s Way to Better Health. 

Dr. Olsen will present a case of Rosemary - The Proving and Cured Case, using the classical homeopathy method of case taking and case analysis as taught to him by his main teacher George Vithoulkas.

Stephen King is a 1982 graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, and he has been practicing homeopathy in Seattle since that time. He is a past-president of the International Foundation for Homeopathy (IFH) and was an instructor for several years in the IFH postgraduate course. He also was the creator of the IFH Case Conference and, along with Sheryl Kipnis, ND, DHANP, edited the published conference proceedings (1989-1995). 

Dr. King has been studying with Rajan Sankaran and his colleagues for 20-plus years.

If Dr. King’s talk had a name, it would be “Still Learning.” He will talk about how he practices, give some overview information about the sensation method, and illustrate how the method helps him with case taking and analysis, using one or two paper cases as illustration.

Nancy Mercer holds a Doctorate of Naturopathic Medicine from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington (1987). She is a Board Certified Homeopath.
