AN OPEN LETTER TO ALL PRACTITIONERS AND STUDENTS OF HOMEOPATHY WORLDWIDE

Esteemed Colleagues and Friends,

We in the homeopathic community sit at a pivotal juncture in our history. Never before has the great science and art of homeopathy been capable of reaching so many people on a global scale, thanks to developments in communication technologies.

Advances in computer software have already helped us to repertorize with comparative ease. And now there is a new, innovative online homeopathic tool – Homeopathic HouseCall – that literally brings homeopathic diagnosis to your fingertips.

We are writing to seek your support and participation.

The Online Tool

Created for both health professionals and the home prescriber, Homeopathic HouseCall systematically addresses 55 common acute care and first-aid conditions. Through a rigorous, yet elegantly-crafted, series of directed questions, the patient’s symptomatology is individualized into the best remedy choices. As of now, Homeopathic HouseCall incorporates 105 remedies, selected by our internationally-renowned clinical team to be effective in 80 percent of cases. Over time, additional symptoms, conditions, and remedies will be added as the program evolves.

Homeopathic HouseCall is a beautifully-designed, user-friendly tool that works on all of your web-based devices: phone, tablet and computer. It goes wherever you go, instantly available and always reliable. Imagine carrying with you 120 years of combined clinical experience to help you traverse the ofttimes tricky terrain of homeopathic prescribing. And all you have to do is answer some questions that we provide, tailored to the specific symptoms that you key in. It’s as simple as that.

The History

The popularity and acceptance of homeopathy in North America have ebbed and flowed over time. It is striking to contrast the enthusiastic embrace of homeopathy in the past with the present day. In 1835, one of our foremost pioneers, Dr. Constantine Hering, published The Homeopathic Domestic Physician, a small tome of acute-care and first-aid advice. Its popularity necessitated the release of seven editions over fifty subsequent years. The book accompanied a remedy kit, and together they were known as "The Box & The Book". Intended for the home prescriber, it was also used extensively in the U.S. and Canada by the lay and professional medical communities: homeopaths, midwives, nurses and physicians.

Because of its great success, The Box and the Book helped homeopathy to gain a remarkable foothold in the United States, as evidenced by the support of four U.S. presidents. By 1900, there were 22 homeopathic medical schools, over 100 homeopathic hospitals, and more than 1,000 homeopathic pharmacies in the U.S.

Today, unfortunately, homeopathy remains relatively unknown in many parts of the world. Even in countries with a deep homeopathic history, such as the U.S., most people do not know what homeopathy is. How many are being deprived of effective and affordable medical care because they have not directly experienced the healing power of homeopathy?

The Opportunity

“The greatest triumph of a science is when it becomes the common property of the people and thus contributes to the common weal.”

– Constantine Hering, The Homoeopathic Domestic Physician

The immense popularity of Hering’s toolkit supports our conviction that clinical success in first-aid and acute care can lead to renewed consumer confidence in homeopathy. Homeopathic HouseCall brings The Box & the Book into the 21st century, and its capacity for unprecedented global reach provides us with an opportunity to help grow homeopathy as never before.

With that in mind, we ask for your support. We believe that Homeopathic HouseCall is the ideal vehicle to expand access to, and knowledge of, homeopathic acute care and first-aid practice. And we further hope that exposing people to homeopathy’s wonders will encourage them to recommend its usage to their families, coworkers and friends.
