What Did Hahnemann Mean by Characteristic?


P.S. It might not be what you think!


With Dr. Eric Udell


Dr. Udell decodes Hahnemann’s intended meaning of the well-known but misunderstood term characteristic, as famously described in Organon aphorism 153 by reviewing excerpts from Hahnemann’s writings, including reference to the original German terms. He will then describe a case that demonstrates this concept in practice.

This session is followed by a Q&A with Eric Udell, Jamie Oskin and Kim Elia.

Overview

Homœopathic Medicine – Pure & Applied 6 Part Series G. Dimitriadis, BSc, DHom(Syd), DHomMCCH(Eng), FHom(UK), GHIH(Syd)

12.0 hours general CE || OBNM and AANP || ACHENA approved Category 1

This course of 6 lectures provides an insight into George’s knowledge and experience gained over many years. Others who have studied with him have commented that the exposure to this material has provided them with a solid foundation which was previously lacking from their training, and as a result they have gone on to develop new found confidence and certainty toward practice, reflected by much improvement in their clinical results.

The longer you can look back, the farther you can look forward.”  ~ Winston Churchill, (speech made 1944)

To be able to apply Homœopathy effectively in clinic, George Dimitriadis believes it is essential to first gain an understanding of its history and foundations. He did not reach this conclusion easily however; it was only after many years of trial and error in clinic and after closely examining the primary sources for himself.

After coming across Homœopathy in his early 20’s George immediately became fascinated by the concept of simila and drawn to learn more about this system of applying medicines, which to him appeared in theory to be both logical and scientific. The completion of a science degree (including anatomy, physiology and medical subjects) only reinforced his conviction in the scientificity of the homœopathic approach and increased his determination to further pursue its study. For the following ten years George read widely and travelled to India and Europe visiting homœopathic clinics, colleges and meeting personally with many teachers and ‘gurus,’ and over the same period, experimented with various approaches in his own clinic in Sydney. Around this time, it became evident to him that a good many of his cases were failing. It was then he realised that the reference tools he was using were flawed and the methods of applying them were less than scientific. So, he went back to the drawing board. George’s passion for detail and accuracy led him to undertake an in-depth study of the Homœopathy of Hahnemann, beginning with his writings prior to the development of Homœopathy, through to his later works. As a result of this careful chronological examination of the primary sources George has gained a far deeper understanding of true Homœopathy with a consequent desire to pass this knowledge on to others.

From 1995 George began to focus on the work of Bönninghausen and in particular his legacy, Therapeutisches Taschenbuch (TT) (Therapeutic Pocketbook Repertory). The years 1995-2000 saw him undertake the English re-publication project of this valuable work, which involved correcting and re-editing through reference to the original German sources, resulting in 2000 in the publication of The Bönninghausen Repertory (TBR), followed by the second edition TBR2 (2010) which is widely recognised as the most reliable repertory available today, and has been, for many years largely the only repertory George himself uses in clinic.

Among the topics covered in the course are the following:

  • History and development of Homœopathic Medicine
  • Development of the Pure Materia Medica of Hahnemann
  • History and development of Repertory – with particular focus on the Therapeutisches Taschenbuch (TT) of Bönninghausen.
  • The use of TT with a variety of case exercises from George’s clinic, through the modern English language translation The Bönninghausen Repertory, (TBR2)
  • Hahnemann’s Theory of Chronic Disease. An understanding as to what he really meant by it and how to apply it clinically.
  • Each lecture provides plentiful and clear citations to the sources in order to facilitate further investigation and studies beyond the lecture series.

Systemic Adaptive Biological Healing - Iris Bell, MD, PhD

1.0 hours General CE || OBNM || ACHENA Approved Category 1

This presentation provides an overall model for homœopathic healing that involves the interaction of the remedy as a complex system that emits self-similar signals (electromagnetic, optical) into its surrounding environment for the recipient organism as a complex adaptive system.

Nanostructures are smaller than 100 nanometers in diameter. The smallest nanostructures are less than 10 nanometers in diameter and acquire quantum mechanical properties as a function of large surface area in a small particle, thereby trapping atoms and their electrons close to the surface. Quantum confinement, entanglement, and coherence may result. The model postulates that homœopathic manufacturing generates complex nanostructures that may include the source as a core nanoparticle and/or a coating shell for other core nanomaterials.

These nanomaterials may include silica and silicon dots from container glassware or carbon dots from plastic polymer containers, residual lactose from trituration of insoluble source materials, and any ethanol solvent during succussions; and plant or animal remedy sources (if used) and/or cork (quercus) stoppers (if used, as in traditional Hahnemannian manufacturing). In turn, the remedy nanostructures can structure surrounding water into self-similar nanostructures in vitro and in vivo and emit detectable electromagnetic and optical signals. The signals in turn trigger emergent adaptive (hormetic) responses in the body, which treats them as an individually salient danger or damage signal for the endogenous sensory and cell defense response pathways.

The biology of the living system occurs at the nanoscale level or organization with additional endogenous signaling pathways that amplify the original signal. The overall healing proceeds across the body’s inherent complex adaptive network organization from above down, inside out, in reverse order in time of symptom appearance. (cf., Hering’s Law of Cure). The speaker supports her argument with research evidence from the peer-reviewed literature.

Basic Outline

  1. Overview of the model for homœopathic healing
  2. Definitions and properties of complex adaptive systems
  3. Specific types of biological effects of remedies
  4. Role of homœopathic manufacturing methods and materials in generating nanostructures
  5. Evidence for electromagnetic and optical signal emissions from remedies
  6. Interaction of remedy nanostructures and signals with living systems – endogenous amplification mechanisms
  7. Self-organization and emergence in the recipient organism as a complex adaptive system or network to generate resilience
  8. Conclusions

HANP Recommended Curriculum

The HANP endorses genuine, orthodox Homœopathy that is practiced in strict accordance with the method described by Hahnemann in the Organon of Medicine, Chronic Diseases, and Lesser Writings and is void of all speculative reasoning (Organon, §6). Homœopathy proper differs from modern techniques, which includes prescribing mixtures of more than one medication at a time (polypharmacy) and/or utilize speculative theories, such as the doctrine of signatures (as well as other a priori speculations about substance effects based upon smell, taste, appearance, chemical analysis, or the faculty of imagination) in order to select a medicinal substance (Organon, §110).

PRAISE FOR Andre Saine,Gregory Pais,George Dimitriadis,Jamie Oskin

André’s seminars are so interesting and fulfilling in so many unknown areas for me.

— V.B.


Thank you so much for this brilliant webinar ( Niendorf 2022) ! I'm just electrified with this information and I'm eager to learn more.

— K.N.


Excellent presentations of cases, case taking and analysis.

— N.H.


I took the vaccine webinar and it was intelligently researched and presented ... vintage Dr. Saine for sure! I am letting many people know about this research and can't emphasize enough the importance of this presentation. Many many thanks for the hours of work and effort that went into the presentation.

— B.B.


Great webinar! Really good examination of cases. Thank you so much.

— MM


That was an invaluable class for me today, Gregory! I’m so happy I was able to attend 'live' this time. Thank you so very much!

— Carolyn


*I really liked this course because it was very focused. I liked the reviews at the beginning of each segment, the ability to ask questions, the 2 hour length of time vs. a one hour webinar. Going through cases is always really helpful. I seem to have a lot of sensitive patients, and when I was doing my homoeopathic training with Dr. Pitcairn, we didn’t get to the LM/Q potencies in depth due to time constraints, and I’m really enjoying starting to use these and hoping for gentler responses.

George Dimitriadis is one of a handful of individuals in the world today who possess an in-depth knowledge of classical Hahnemannian homœopathy. He is a scholar and an excellent prescriber. I have known him personally, and have followed his efforts to establish Hahnemannian homœopathy in Australia. His thorough, scientific approach does great service to classical homœopathy in general, and adds prestige to the profession. We are proud to have him in our ranks as a superb, scientific defender of the cause of pure homœopathy.

Having had the privilege of discussing Bönninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook [TBR2] with George, I can only say that I am thoroughly impressed with the level of real scholarship I see. I value any opportunity to learn from this gifted teacher and researcher. His eye for detail and thoroughness are impressive. His writing style and extensive footnotes offer the reader clarity and simplicity with the option of depth and further elaboration. Wow. I am a total fan. Just get anything he does.

I am personally grateful to George Dimitriadis because I was inspired to study Bönninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook in-depth after seeing him speak at the 2013 JAHC convention in Reston, Virginia. Although I was trained primarily in post-Kentian repertorisation, I have now been utilizing George Dimitriadis' English translation of Bönninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook [TBR2] almost exclusively for the past year and have seen significant improvements in the accuracy of homœopathic prescriptions and clinical results. Dimitriadis' tireless efforts with over 15 years of work to edit Bönninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook have made TBR2 the most accurate and reliable repertory available on the market today. The history of the Pocketbook and instructions for its use in the prologues are invaluable. TBR2 is also the only repertory with an extensive exegesis explaining the meanings of rubrics with reference to the primary provings. Dimitriadis' work is meticulous and evidences that he is one of the greatest scholars of pure Hahnemannian homœopathy today. I also highly recommend Dimitriadis' companion book Homœopathic Diagnosis, Hahnemann through Bönninghausen. This book gives a more extensive history and theory background of the Pocketbook as well as about 50 case examples for students to practice to learn the method of using TBR2 to efficiently and effectively reference the materia medica, resulting in highly accurate homœopathic prescriptions. I recommend that beginners in homœopathy start with TBR2 and Homœopathic Diagnosis to have a solid foundation in the roots of homœopathy. Additionally, I recommend these works for more advanced homœopaths because the detailed endnotes are an invaluable treasure chest of knowledge.
