Homeopathy: treatment observations, therapeutic goals and criteria for healing

29 Jun 2018

The annual international conference of WissHom, the German Scientific Society for Homeopathy (Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Homöopathie) will this year discuss expectations of what homeopathic treatment can achieve in their conference ‘Homöopathie: Verlaufsbeobachtung, Therapieziele und Kriterien der Heilung’ (‘Homeopathy: follow-up, therapeutic goals and criteria for healing’).

A particulary interesting and relevant workshop is offered by Dr. George Ivanovas: Das regulative Modell – die Sprache von Homöopathie und zeitgemäßer Wissenschaft. (transaltion by ECHAMP: The regulation model – the language of homeopathy and modern up to date science). The founder of homeopathy, Dr Samuel Hahnemann had given his “theory of regulation”, that could explain the mode of action of homeopathic medicinal products with the tools and terminology as used in the 19th century.

Today that part of homeopathy’s theoretical background can be modernised, thus building a bridge to modern regulation theories. A modern “theorisation” is a cardinal element that enhances the bridging social discourse.

An extensive panel of experts from Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Spain and Greece will address and debate the question, what can patients and therapists expect from homeopathic therapy? They will consider outcomes such as improvement of a symptom, the elimination of symptoms, or even complete healing – that is, according to the World Health Organisation, the achievement of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Or are the benefits of the therapy due to more than just the medication that is used? Join the debate in Köthen, Germany from 22-24 November.
