Demystifying Homeopathic Practice Overview
Successful Case Taking, Analysis & Follow Up
with Kim Elia & Will Taylor
ACHENA Approved for 20 Hours - Available Online Only
Will and Kim will guide you through all the intricacies of Case-Taking, Analysis and Follow-Up, with a focus on historical and contemporary methods that have a proven track record in daily practice.
The course starts with a thorough examination of Hahnemann's approach to case-taking, as described in Aphorisms 183 through 204. Will and Kim will expand the discussion and explore new discoveries, including insights from the fields of contemporary psychology and neuro-linguistic programming, which aid in eliciting the information required for a successful homeopathic prescription.
The class will then venture into the all-important topic of Case Analysis. We'll investigate the nature of the totality of symptoms, that "principal or sole means whereby the disease can make known." The exploration will use a variety of approaches — from Boenninghausen’s use of location, sensation, modality and concomitant, to current systems which have further advanced our understanding of this essential component of successful homeopathic practice. We'll address the effective use of the Repertory, including rubric selection and construction of a formal analysis.
Finally, Will and Kim will delve deeply into the often overlooked issue of Case Management and follow-up, including supervising patients with serious pathology and those on allopathic medications. The subject of posology (potency and dose) will also be discussed, with a review of different methods from the 4th, 5th and 6th editions of the Organon. Each of the cases presented will explore the reasoning for the potency and dose which were selected.
Theory & Practice
The course is designed to help participants to practice homeopathy more confidently, and will answer many questions which prevent students and practitioners from practicing with confidence. Although a variety of theoretical subjects will be presented, each topic will be grounded in real cases which clarify the important lesson to be understood.
A small sampling of the important subjects and teachers whose work
will be discussed include:
- Samuel Hahnemann (Organon and Chronic Diseases)
- Clemens von Boenninghausen (various writings)
- Adolphe Lippe (Fatal Flaw articles and other published writings)
- Carrol Dunham (The Science of Therapeutics)
- James Tyler Kent (Lectures on Homeopathic Philosophy and Lesser Writings)
- George Vithoulkas (Science of Homeopathy and Levels of Health)
- Paul Herscu (Cycles and Segments Model)
- Alastair Gray (Case Taking)
- Luc De Schepper (Achieving and Maintaining the Simillimum)
- Brian Kaplan (Homeopathic Conversation)
Each participant will receive multiple cases to work on, and Will and Kim will guide the student in a thorough understanding of how to apply effective and successful Case-Taking, Analysis and Follow-Up approaches in their own practice.

Kim Elia is one of our most outstanding teachers and exponents of Homeopathy. His knowledge of the Synthesis Repertory, and Repertories in general, as well as his knowledge of the Organon, Chronic Diseases, Materia Medica, and the history of Homeopathy is superb. Through his insights into past Homeopathic masters and their teachings, and his deep understanding of homeopathic prescribing, Kim has demonstrated a general mastery over our vast homeopathic literature. I am thrilled to be learning from Kim, and I am gaining from his vast experience that he presents so succinctly, lucidly, and clearly. I look forward to future courses with him.
— Ahmed N Currim, Ph...
Every time I hear Kim teach, I say to myself: ‘What a dynamic teacher!’ He has prepared his material so very well and offers it with such clarity, with a waterfall of questions that demand that the student actually think about the issues being discussed. No doubt that anyone participating in such a high caliber teaching session will walk out refreshed and, most of all, significantly more knowledgeable!
— Frederik Schroyens...
It is a great pleasure and honour to recommend Kim Elia. Kim brings to homoeopathy a unique knowledge of materia medica, repertories and advanced case analysis. His friendly nature and clear step by step explanation of deeper issues in homeopathic practice clearly show his genuine desire to help the person in front of him. Anybody who has heard Kim once would certainly want to hear him again and again. I have learned many things from Kim, and indeed, through his long career as a teacher in North America, Kim has cultivated a vast knowledge from which many others will be able to learn also."
— Farokh Master, MD,...
It is a rare constellation of qualities to find an educator in homeopathy who is collaborative, as well as both insightful and inspirational. Kim has all of these and more. He has a humility that belies a deep well of knowledge. At a time when there is much that is speculative and guesswork in homeopathic education Kim is able to ground his work in excellent theory and convincing cases. But as well as his case work, Kim's strength is his materia medica and students the world over have benefited from his seminars and webinars on our remedy indications often utilising the best of the latest technology. He is not just a true teacher of the art and science of homeopathy, he is also very, very funny. You just have to attend. Cheers.
— Alastair Gray, PhD
Kim Elia is perhaps the most widely traveled homeopath in the world. In the process he has acquired discrimination. He knows good homeopathy and not so good, good teachers and charlatans. He is rooted in the Organon and is a master of repertory. He knows how to access the world literature on homeopathy rapidly and with tremendous insight. If he does not have a case illustrating a certain remedy from his own extensive practice, he knows where to find an excellent one from the literature. He teaches with great enthusiasm and humor. There are only a handful of teachers in the homeopathic community of his caliber.
— Karl Robinson, MD
Kim Elia is one of our most exciting and dynamic homoeopathy teachers. He is a literal wealth of information, not only homoeopathic philosophy and practice but in the historical sequences that created homoeopathy. Highly recommended.

In his teaching Kim is true to the three letters in his name: Embedded in an atmosphere of vigour and animation, Kim’s presenting style is
The three together spell excellence in the teaching of homeopathy.

I am on lecture 2 of your History course. I have not felt such excitement from a course in recent memory! This is so captivating and rich I can't wait to get through all the classes! I sincerely believe that this course should be required for all students of Homœopathy (and one day, God willing, all students of allopathic medicine). Thank you so much for offering this to me. It is a work of art.
— Douglas Falkner, M...
I must say I am completely and totally impressed with the online classes you provide. I wish I had more time!
I especially appreciate “simple” classes that go in depth regarding one specific remedy, such as Helleborus, Aethusa, Rhus tox, etc. I would love more of these! Kim Elia and Dr. Taylor do such a fantastic job of presenting the whole picture of remedies. I would appreciate even one-hour classes on the more common remedies... I have studied these remedies but I consistently get a clearer picture after a session with Kim or Dr. Taylor.
Thank you for making these available!
— Anna B.
Please tell Will Taylor that I thoroughly enjoyed his course and he is a fantastic teacher. He has such an easy going manner, very in depth knowledge, humor and clear teaching that it is pure pleasure to hear him.
I adore Will's presentation style, have had him several times as a teacher at the school I attended. I appreciate his sense of humour and movie quotes. I will listen to him anytime. If I could afford to take all his online classes, I would.
I am so delighted to have discovered Dr. Taylor as a teacher. He is among the best I have encountered. His depth of knowledge, understanding of disease, and humility make him a joy to learn with. He presents a high bar with his dedication to excellence, which inspires us to reach farther with our own professional development.
I wanted to thank you yet again for another wonderful course. You certainly are a talented educator with so much experience, I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity of learning from you and also for the invention of webinars! Thanks to you and your WHN team, I am now addicted and find it really hard to resist each new series on offer.
I just wanted to thank you for your wonderfully enlightening and stimulating course on Rheumatic Diseases. I learned so much from the enormous detail you managed to cover each week. I'm sure it takes a tremendous amount of time and energy to research and compile each lecture - but nothing goes unnoticed Will, I'm sure everyone is most grateful to you.
I know I've said this to you before, but I'd really like to tell you again - you are an extremely inspiring educator with a depth of knowledge in so many areas, it's always such a treat to spend whatever time I get to share your insight. And all this with a wonderful sense of humour.
I love, love, love the Rheumatic Diseases course as well. (Want more of that.) -- Also looking forward to the Cardiovascular Course.
— Sarah D.
Thank you for a wonderful Webinar. This was my first webinar with you, and I really enjoyed it. This has opened up a whole new universe for me to learn homeopathy. Up until now I always avoided webinars. But yours was as good as a live seminar. I am so glad I signed up for it.
I look forward to attending more of your webinars in future.
