ACHENA Approved for 12 hours in Category 1

This course is also part of the HANP 30 hour Foundational Core Curriculum.

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. This series of six lectures is aimed at providing a basis for the homœopathic practitioner to understand the history and development of Homœopathic Medicine – from Hahnemann’s reproducible observations of individual substance effects to the consequent general similars principle. 

These observations paved the way to a new and pure materia medica, devoid of conjecture & hypothesis, and his foundational pharmacography (Fragmenta, RA, CK). The course details the history & development of repertory with particular focus on the Therapeutisches Taschenbuch (TT) of Bönninghausen (the creator of our Repertory as we know it), which is modelled upon Hahnemann’s clear pharmacographic structure (abstraction of symptoms), and further illustrates TT’s use with a variety of case exercises through our own modern English language translation The Bönninghausen Repertory, 2nd edition (TBR2). Each lecture provides plentiful and clear citation to sources in order to facilitate further investigation and studies beyond the lecture series.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review the history and development of homœopathic medicine
  • Discuss the construction, accuracy and use of materia medica in clinical practice
  • Explore the differentiation of typography to indicate certainty of information
  • Cultivate a deep understanding of the elemental triad that leads to a complete symptom
  • Review terms introduced to help define concepts of symptomarchy, complete symptom and complete case
  • Synthesize this knowledge in order to apply it effectively in clinical practice

A Note from George Dimitriadis:
What distinguishes this course from Homœopathic Diagnosis?

BOTH WHN & HANP lecture series were made with the idea that the basics need be re-covered. I use mostly different cases for each series. The HANP series was especially intended for graduates seeking professional speciality membership into HANP (or other association) - so it is more condensed. Also, the last lecture specifically deals with Hahnemann's "Theory of Chronic Disease" and includes cases illustrating its practical significance & application. This is not included in the Homœopathic Diagnosis course, and is an important lecture.

"George Dimitriadis' work for homœopathy is of the greatest importance for our profession! In my estimation, his understanding and furthering of the work of Hahnemann and Bönninghausen is simply unparalleled. He is also a phenomenal teacher. I highly recommend this course to everyone, whether they are a beginning student or the most advanced practitioner. The results will speak for themselves." - Kim Elia

PRAISE FOR George Dimitriadis

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.

— George Vithoulkas

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.
