Homeopathy

What is Homeopathy?

Homeopathy is a safe, effective system of natural medicine used by millions of people worldwide for more than 200 years. Homeopathic medicines are prepared from natural sources, are used in extremely small amounts, and are recognized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. They are non-toxic and, when properly administered, can be safely used with infants, children, adults and animals. National Center for Homeopathy

Ashland Homeopathic Study Group (AHSG)

The Ashland homeopathic study group serves a two-fold purpose:

  • To conduct provings
  • To foster continuing education and inspiration for practitioners.
Provings

During the fall of 2006, Deborah Gordon, MD, Ian R. Luepker, ND and John Ourant decided to conduct a proving of a substance never before proven. In collaboration with Michael Quinn at Hahnemann Labs, Roger Morrison, MD and Nancy Herrick, PA, Deborah, Ian, and John conducted a proving in Ashland with a group of fifteen.

What is a proving? The testing of a substance, either in crude form or potency, on healthy volunteers to discover the symptoms it is capable of producing, and therefore able to cure. Participants in a proving record their symptoms; the symptoms are collated and used as indications for prescribing that substance.

Study Group

AHSG convenes once a month. All are welcome. Venue varies.
