Practice your skills in the field

The concentrated practicum is 75 hours and decided among the course instructor, student, and practicum site. The work activities are structured based on student interest and decided learning outcomes. The practicum site facilitator and the course instructor decide on the appropriate evaluation mechanism for the student.

The Levels of Health II: Homeopathy Seminar @ John J. Cox Student Center
Sep 17 – Sep 18 all-day

This course will be a concise introduction to the new model of health devised by Professor George Vithoulkas, namely The Levels of Health. This follows the publication of his latest book of the same name in 2010.

Approved for 12 hours of foundational education towards CHC hours.

Featured Speaker (via video conference):

Other Presenters

  • Florence McPherson, ND., Adjunct Professor of Homeopathy at the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine
  • Andrew Ward, LCH, Dip.IACH, R.S.Hom, experienced classical homeopath practicing in London, long-term student of Professor Vithoulkas, teacher, and head of E-Courses for IACH in UK
  • Kim Elia, CEO of WholeHealthNow. International teacher, historian, and dynamic lecturer on homeopathy

The concept of The Levels of Health will be presented. Within the context of the three levels of the human organism, the parameters of the model will be explained – 4 groups and 12 levels- that define the levels of health to which a patient belongs. This is done in order to gain a better insight into the patient’s disease state and therefore to reach a better understanding of the prognosis, before and during treatment. This classification helps us to understand the patient’s general condition and helps us to refine the prognosis and intelligently use any information to evaluate the remedy reaction and subsequent action needed. A proper evaluation of the case progression is essential and only possible with the correct knowledge. The rules and guidelines of this model are clearly presented and will enable the student to evaluate more successfully his/her case and therefore achieve a better outcome. Power point presentation mixed with case examples and one video case will be presented.
