HOMEOPATHY: THE HAHNEMANN & BOENNINGHAUSEN WAY
with Gary Weaver MD DO
A four day seminar in Hahnemannian homeopathy through the analysis process formulated by Boenninghausen using the Therapeutic Pocketbook.
The training is dedicated to the study of Hahnemann’s methodology for case taking. This will involve:
– A deep study of the related Organon sections to casetaking.
– A comprehensive analysis of his rationale for understanding what disease is
– What to look for
– How to complete a symptom
– How to find the expression of the disease in an individual
– How to link symptoms for a complete picture of the disease.
We will demonstrate each step of the process with video and powerpoint and many case examples.
We will also demonstrate Hahnemann’s thinking through the analysis process formulated by Boenninghausen using the Therapeutic Pocket Book. This work when used correctly, can quickly point to the generals of a case or indeed the specific single symptoms that point to a remedy for use. We will examine:
– Causal events
– Organ failure
– Acute diseases
– Chronic diseases
– Totality treatment in one sided diseases
– How to treat concurrent different diseases.
– Repetition of medicines.
– Alternating remedies.
– LM or Q potencies. How to dose, Repetition, case management and how to deal with aggravations.
– How to read Materia Medica to get the right medicine.

The Hahnemann and Boenninghausen way
Hahnemann developed a penetrating case analysis mode for ascertaining the precise symptoms of the disease state. Restoring pure homeopathy to use proving-based repertory and pure materia medica, while removing the Kentian overlays and new materia medica and repertories gluttered with psychological speculations and inaccurate information, can promise a high clinical success.
Clemens Maria Franz von Bönninghausen (1785-1864) was Hahnemann’s most competent student. To the profession’s benefit, Boenninghausen managed to encapsulate the manner in which Hahnemann examined a case via symptoms, and was able to formulate the process in an invaluable repertorial process known as the Therapeutic Pocket Book (1846).
Vladimir Polony and Gary Weaver has undertaken a re-translation work into English from the original 1846 edition, thus repairing many of the errors found in the formerly popular Allen’s version. It is now available in English, Spanish, Italian and Hebrew.
