Joint American Homeopathic Conference 2017
I’ve just returned from Atlanta and a full week immersed in the topic of Homeopathy! The first days were spent in meetings with the Board of Directors, on which I serve for the National Center of Homeopathy, the largest and most diverse Homeopathic organization in the United States. NCH is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting health through Homeopathy by offering support to consumers, student Homeopaths, and practitioners. Through the advocacy work of NCH, Homeopathy remains available through practitioners and for consumers. If you have ever wondered how Homeopathy really works or what research is available to back the actions of Homeopathy, then the NCH website is an excellent resource.
One of the major contributions NCH makes each year as a service to its community is to sponsor an annual Joint American Homeopathic Conference. The conference unites Homeopaths from a wide variety of backgrounds to include MDs, Nurses, Chiropractors, Naturopathic Doctors, and lay-Homeopaths like myself.
As part of my responsibilities on the board of directors, I currently serve as the chair person of this annual JAHC conference. This provides me with a wonderful opportunity to work with my colleagues to search out and secure the best speakers in the field of Homeopathy health care. This past weekend I was proud to share a strong slate of speakers from as far away as India. We were most fortunate to host Divya Chhabra from Mumbai who is an expert on the sensation style of case taking in addition to a personal favorite of mine, Dr. Resie Moonen.
Divya is known for her dramatic case taking and Dr. Moonen has met incredible success in the treatment of autoimmune disease with Homeopathy. I had been fortunate to hear both Divya and Resie speak in Germany and was delighted that they both accepted my invitation to come to Georgia.
Proposals for talks were also accepted from our membership and of particular interest to all attendees was a closing plenary panel of well respected female colleagues who shared the outlook of Homeopathy given the challenges of today’s healthcare system.
It was no doubt a whirlwind week, full of inspiring connections and conversations, all wonderful fuel for creativity that I look forward to integrating into my work back home in Austin!
