Introduction to Homeopathy Level 1 Study Group at TLC
Chronic pain, seasonal and food allergies, skin issues, injuries, stress, headaches, gut issues, these are just some of the things that homeopathy can help by not only decreasing the symptoms, but actually supporting the innate wisdom of the body to uproot the issue entirely, based on the experiences of many individuals around the world over that last 200 years.
This is a terrific opportunity to learn the basics of what Homeopathy is and how to get started using it for acute and chronic illness, allergies, first aid, and much more.
Classes will be held at the Tree of LIfe Center for Wellbeing in Newcastle, and interactively via the internet, on (time and day will be determined when we find what works best for this group. Usually Wednesday or Thursday evenings 6:30-8:00 est,) for 6-8 weeks.
Homeopathy was started over 200 years ago by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, and was the mainstay medicine before the advent of synthetic pharmaceuticals. Around the turn of the century there were over 100 homeopathic hospitals and many medical doctors practicing homeopathy in the United States, and many more around the world. Germany, England, India, France, and many other countries, continued relying on homeopathy even as pharmaceuticals became available, whereas in the US it fell out of popularity, mainly due to the AMA focus and promotion of synthetic pharmaceuticals, around 1930. Homeopathy is once again resurging in popularity as a safe and effective alternative to modern drugs with their dangerous side effects and high cost.
Many homeopathic medicines (remedies) are widely available over the counter and can be used to treat virtually any type of disease, allergy, or injury. There are no harmful or toxic side effects as with pharmaceuticals. They are safe for children and animals. Homeopathic medicines are regulated by the FDA and manufactured under strict guidance and regulations. Homeopathic remedies do not simply surpress the pain or symptoms as does pharmaceuticals, but actually support the body’s natural healing capacity to uproot and cure the issue. Even long standing chronic issues can be addressed when properly used. Homeopathy is used worldwide, and often at the request of governments, for prevention and treatment of mass infections and disease outbreaks, with a outstanding record of success.
Our 6-week course is written by Joette Calabrese (condensed 8 week course). Joette is a classically trained homeopath with years of experience. But even more importantly, for the past several years she has been traveling to Kolkata India to work and study with the Doctor’s Banerji, a family of medical doctors also classically trained in homeopathy, who together, over three generations of working with homeopathy, are world renowned for their ground breaking work in healing all types of disease and injuries with homeopathy. Today they see over a 1,000 patients a day in the worlds largest clinic of this type.
You will be learning what homeopathy is, how the medicines are made, how to choose the right medicines for you and your family, the difference between acute illness and chronic illness, and how homeopathy can address both. Also what to use during an emergency, where to buy homeopathic medicines, what to look for when selecting a source, how to know if you are using the correct medicines and when to select another, and much more extremely helpful information to get you started.
We will be meeting at our office and online via ZOOM, a very simple (free to you) web service, so you can join in via internet, or phone from wherever you are. The study groups are a fun way to share our experiences and learn how to get started with homeopathy and have support of our growing community of students.

What Is Homeopathy
Homeopathy is natural medicine. It is completely science based. Homeopathy was the prime method of medicine before the advent of pharmaceuticals. The United States alone had over a hundred homeopathic hospitals with some of the most notable doctors in the country at the turn of the century. Homeopathy proved far more effective against major disease outbreaks during this time than all other methods, including pharmaceuticals, with virtually no harmful side effects. It was only after the American Medical Association (backed by the pharmaceutical companies) convinced the public the new drugs were superior did Homeopathy lose its position of status.
"Homeopathy is a system of medicine that is fundamentally different from conventional (allopathic) medicine. Whereas allopathic medicine focuses on suppression of symptoms, homeopathy seeks to correct the underlying imbalance that caused the symptoms in the first place. Homeopathy achieves this by strengthening the body’s own defenses, thereby allowing the body to heal itself". (Joette Calabrese)
"Homeopathy is a safe, gentle, and natural system of healing that works with your body to relieve symptoms, restore itself, and improve your overall health. It is extremely safe to use, even with very small children and pets, has none of the side effects of many traditional medications, is very affordable, is made from natural substances, and is FDA regulated."
