It takes a minimum of three years full-time homeopathy study to qualify as a professional homeopath. Indeed, many find that this provides only the basics: time, experience and more training fill this out, and most professional courses run over four years at degree level.
But very few homeopaths ever think they have finally arrived! There is always more to learn.
Besides being a powerful system of medicine, homeopathy instills a study, an appreciation and a love of human nature and character.
This is a picture of a Thuja tree. Thuja is an important remedy (medicine) used in Homoeopathy.
Colleges teaching the subject need to assure themselves that students have the necessary stability and life-experience to persevere. Few homeopaths make fortunes from their profession.
Often it is a labour of love, inspired by the healing reactions from patients. You have to be inwardly strong enough to continue practising when sometimes life goes against you.
There is plenty of evidence for homeopathy! But because many scientists cannot accept that highly dilute substances can affect the physical body, they allow themselves to disregard the principles behind homeopathy.
When embarking on a homeopathy course, be aware that you will need for example to -
In your course of homeopathy study you'll learn about the history of the subject, and, importantly, how to assess the importance of symptoms in a way totally different from ordinary orthodox medicine.
Depending on who you study with, you may also get to understand other systems of energetic medicine, such as Chinese medicine.
Be warned! Homeopathy (and homeopathy study) is a terminal disease!
You also need to be business-like. There is no use in studying a subject like this unless you are prepared to market yourself to some extent. Unless you tell people about what you do, they won't know to visit you.
Marketing and developing yourself may seem totally at odds with your ideals and aims when starting homeopathy study. But unless you earn enough from it to live on, you will need another source of income, such as a spouse or a job. Or considerable savings.
On completion of approved courses, homeopaths in Scotland can apply to join the Scottish Association of Professional Homoeopaths which enables professional homeopaths working in Scotland to meet together and improve their knowledge and ability.
You do not need to be a member of another professional organization to join the Scottish Association of Professional Homeopaths, but you must be a professional homeopath in practice in Scotland, and undergo a registration procedure.
The Scottish Association for Professional Homeopaths works to raise professional standards and increase awareness of the important contribution that Homeopathy can make to Health.
Most members of the Scottish Association of Professional Homeopaths would, I am sure, agree that reaching the required standard took a lot of hard work.
But their courses of homeopathy study were also immensely fulfilling. And of course, there is immense satisfaction in helping people live healthier, happier lives.
This website has been built for his patients and others by Jonathan Clogstoun-Willmott who began learning homeopathy in 1975.
If you have enjoyed reading it, you may also enjoy some of the books Jonathan has written.
Please note! 'Yin Deficiency' still remains to be re-edited for the Kindle edition. ('Western Astrology and Chinese Medicine' published 1986, was never available in a Kindle version.)
If, having read one of my books you can bestir yourself to write a review - preferably positive - that would help others decide whether to read it.
You can put your review on Amazon or, on this site, here.
And if you think it was terrible?
Well, let me know so I can improve it for the next person. (Ideally let me know before cursing it in public!)
Here are some of the books Jonathan has written:
Still only one comment, though personally I think this is my best book so far.
Published 1986 and, amazingly, still selling. Was apparently used back then by at least one acupuncture college to help students understand Chinese medicine!
No comments yet: just published. (Despite the lurid cover, it explains the five main types of phlegm and what works best for each type. I hope it's easy to read and will be much more useful than all the websites on the subject.)
