Samuel Hahnemann

If you are interested in seminars, courses or tutoring based on the philosophical points of view made below, please email booking@classicalhomeopathy.eu. Ewald Stöteler will be leading these seminars, courses or tutoring with thoroughness and expediency, based on his 25 years of practicing homeopathy according to the basic assumptions cited below.

The homeopathic treatment, using as its assumption the disease classification by Samuel Hahnemann, consists of several distinct elements. The philosophical foundation contains differences on important elements or offers in depth nuances compared to the usual homeopathic point of view. The actual effects for an analysis and the usage of the medicine, does then also emerge in a different light. Philosophy, analysis, materia medica and casuistic deserve a closer look and evaluation. The methodology with the disease classification as its starting point, is based on such a foundation.

According to this vision, philosophy should form the basis of medicine. The philosophy shapes the groundwork from which action and treatment are established.

 Philosophy  Workplace  Casuistic

A complete description of this philosophy can be found in Samuel Hahnemann’s book “Organon of the Medical Art”.

The functional consequences for homeopathic treatment of this philosophy, are found in Hahnemann’s work “Chronic Diseases”.

Casuistic is dealt with according to the “Organon of the Medical Art” and “Chronic Diseases”. Any complications are traced back to the applicable paragraph in the “Organon of the Medical Art” and the relevant text-fragment from “Chronic Diseases”. These paragraphs and text-fragments are never taken out of their context.

Contextual Materia Medica

Contextual Materia Medica is the science of the medicine providing insight into the dynamic illness processes of the human being. The hereditary burden with which someone is borne, determines to a degree the constitution. In turn, the constitution determines how someone can and will respond in certain life-circumstances. In this way, the hereditary burden, constitution and biography are closely linked and at the same time very different entities. To each distinct entity belongs a different medicinal-group. The heritage somewhat forms the “context” from which the constitution of the human being is born.

The complete human being lives his biography. In this way, a mutual contextual relationship is developed between de various life-areas in which one to a degree arises from the other and they exercise a strong influence upon each other. The corresponding materia medica, in which one pathological state develops to a certain extend from another, is called the contextual materia medica. The strength of Samuel Hahnemann lies in the fact that he created a scientific foundation for homeopathy. Working according to the aforementioned philosophy, involves a very different approach. This requires a thorough study. Read more about the course Contextual Materia Medica »

Course A (5 days) & Course B (5 days)
For groups with a minimum of 20 persons

Philosophy can be considered the basis of medical science. Philosophy is the leading vision for our actions and the way we treat patients and it is the foundation for homeopathic science. These principles, that are based on laws of nature, are described in a magnificent way in Samuel Hahnemann’s ‘Organon’ and ‘Chronic Diseases’. The central subjects in Course A & B are:

  • The pathology of Samuel Hahnemann, also referred to as ‘The Disease Classification’ (incidents, epidemic diseases, acute miasmatic diseases, hereditary taint, etc..)

  • The use of highly potentiated medicine, the LM potencies

  • The use of a smelling dose

  • The prescription of medication for different kinds of diseases by alternating prescription

  • Degenerative organ diseases and their treatment, based on the ‘Organon’ and ‘Chronic diseases’

  • The practical consequences of this philosophy for the treatment of patients in daily practice can be found in Hahnemann’s work ‘The Chronic Diseases’

  • The consistent application of the similia rule in all aspects of the treatment (in the communication and prescription of a similar clinical picture, similar in potency, dosage and frequency, similar disease dynamics)

 About Ewald Stöteler
Ewald Stoteler

Ewald Stöteler came into contact with classic homeopathy at a very young age and was immediately “taken” by it. As mentioned before, he has been practicing homeopathy intensively for the last 25 years. That the above-mentioned renewed elements of homeopathy concerning the treatment of patients have been placed on the forefront is of credit to him. All information regarding this, can be found on our website. Ewald Stöteler started relatively early to pass on knowledge through teaching. With almost 20 years of experience as a teacher, he can rely on a huge amount of experience. For over five years, he has been the managing director of the Homeopathie Academie Nederland. This is his own developed schooling, based on the above-mentioned philosophy. His ability to explain the issues clearly, insures that the students experience his classes as very inspiring and offering clarity.

His ideal, to bring homeopathy to the world, is being realised in this way. Partly due to this ideal, he has held seminars in several countries and his articles have been published in and outside of the Netherlands. Several books written by him, will soon be available in both English and German.
