Harry Potter and Homeopathy- What's the Connection?

Today is July 15th, 2011.  This is a very exciting day for many children and adults around the world because the last Harry Potter movie, The Deathly Hallows, Part II, opens today.  Yes, I admit it.  I am a huge Harry Potter fan.  I have seen all of the movies and read all of the books.  You may be wondering why I am spending time talking about Harry Potter-‘this has nothing to do with Homeopathy’!

Graduation Day: Sending Out Another Crop of Homeopaths Into the World!

When I woke up on Saturday June 25thand saw the dark, cloudy skies and felt the cooler temperatures I was hoping that it wouldn’t rain during our graduation ceremony or the pictures.  Graduation is not only an important day for staff and faculty at the Canadian College of Homeopathic Medicine (CCHM), it is an equally significant day for our graduates.

How often does a prospective student get the opportunity to learn what skills they require in order to be successful in practice? 

A Career in Homeopathy: Preparing Students for Success in Practice

If you are a student beginning their Homeopathic studies or even just thinking about it, it is hard to imagine being in the shoes of one of our year 3 students who are on the verge of graduating and beginning a whole new journey as a practicing Homeopath.

So, You Want to Become a Homeopath?

The first step is to gain a clear understanding of what is and isn’t Homeopathy.  Believe it or not, there is a lack of clarity about what is and isn’t Homeopathy.  Homeopathy is a form of natural medicine with a specific set of scientific principles.  So, it makes sense that you need to follow these principles in order to be practicing Homeopathy.
