FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

HOMEOPATHY FOR PHARMACISTS

	The Michener Institute for Applied Health Sciences and the Centre 
for Classical Homeopathy, both based in Toronto, announced today a 
continuing education seminar for pharmacists in Homeopathic Clinical 
Science. The one day seminar emphasizes the original, “classical” method 
which provides far greater therapeutic power than other homeopathic 
methods. In 9 intensive hours, the seminar provides vital information 
pharmacists need to assist people seeking effective, safe treatment for 
acute and sub-acute conditions.

	The seminar was developed by Dr. David Tulbert, B,Sc., D.C., 
F.B.I.H., the director of the Centre for Classical Homeopathy. Dr. 
Tulbert has been practicing classical homeopathy since 1975, and has been 
actively involved in homeopathy research since 1986. “The public is 
demanding homeopathy more and more,” says Tulbert, “and now homeopathic 
remedies are available at pharmacies all over North America. Since 
classical homeopathy is highly effective as well as safe, we decided to 
promote fuller public access by training pharmacists in this method. 
Hopefully, this initiative will increase the overall health of 
Canadians.”

	The homeopathic approach to health care is very different from 
the traditional pharmaceutical approach. “At the present time,” Tulbert 
says, “most pharmacists do not know how to make proper recommendations 
concerning homeopathic remedies, posology, contra-indications, and 
storage. In the long-run, I believe that lack of information will limit 
public use of homeopathy much more than lack of remedy stock in the 
store.”

	Tulbert points out that most of the remedies currently sold 
over-the-counter are “complex” remedies- mixtures of many individual 
remedies in very low potencies. “The complex remedies are sometimes 
useful,” Tulbert said, “but they bend the rules of homeopathy too much. 
In doing so, they sacrifice most of the efficacy that would otherwise be 
available.

	“In contrast, professional homeopaths will tell you that properly 
selected classical remedies provide somewhere between ten and 500 times 
as much therapeutic power, depending on the strength. What’s more,” 
Tulbert adds, “they do so with a significantly lower risk of iatrogenic 
effects and under-treatment. And for acute and sub-acute conditions, you 
need minimal training to use homeopathy effectively.”

	The seminar curriculum is outlined below. Each participant also 
receives a carefully designed package of printed materials. “The 
classroom component is important”, Tulbert said, “but what do you do when 
a patient wants advice on homeopathy and you have eight other customers 
standing in line?” To ease the load, the center for Classical Homeopathy 
wrote the HOMEOPATHIC REFERENCE FOR PHARMACISTS, a detailed reference 
manual packed with important information. The written materials also 
include remedy selection guides for use by either pharmacists or 
patients, a unique patient self-evaluation form to determine if the 
remedy is working properly, and patient instructions for proper use of 
remedies.

CURRICULUM:	
	Basics: history of homeopathy, types of homeopathic remedies, 
indications and contra-indications, choosing a remedy and strength, 
interactions with drugs, and storage properties;
	Clinical: homeopathic first-aid, treatment of colds and other 
acute conditions, and treatment of sub-acute conditions including 
dysmennorrhea, headaches, stress conditions, sleep disorders, acute 
gastritis and gastro-enteritis, allergies, otitis and cystitis;
Review of Literature:  behaviour of homeopathic remedies in vivo and in 
vitro, clinical differences between homeopathic and placebo responses,  
the physics of “sub-avogadro” dilutions, and more.
