Classical Homeopathic Lectures: Volume I - Vassilis Ghegas
Preface to Volume I
The greatest difficulty in classical homeopathy is the follow-up on the long term: how can we guide a patient to a constantly better level of health during 20 to 30 years? Most of the time it is not sufficient to give the simillimum only once. Usually different remedies that may be connected are necessary. In the course of the treatment it is important to avoid obstructed cases, because if the case is obstructed, a lot of skill is required to open it up again.
In this seminar Vassilis gives us a trunk full of tips to help us in the follow-up on the long term.
The best chance of treating epilepsy successfully with homeopathy is when the patient is a child. Vassilis lets us in on his experience in this respect.
Shock (especially emotional shock) may throw a new layer over the patient so that he changes remedies. Vassilis gives us examples from his experience.
The description of the essences of NUX-V., ANAC., CON. and CIMIC. will help both beginning and experienced homeopaths to quickly recognize the remedy in practice.
From the Publisher:
When Vassilis Ghegas gave his first lecture at a conference of the "Society of Homeopaths" in England in September 1983, none could have expected that this would be the start of a brilliant, didactic series of lessons which are still continued today.
Vassilis is a master in hierarchical teaching. He discusses all topics that occur in homeopathic practice, but the information he provides is hierarchically structured - not alphabetically. He first gives the information that you will frequently need in practice, and later on, he presents less frequent topics and situations. So, he guides his students through a kind of structured evolution process he has been through himself.
Vassilis uses a central idea when presenting the essence of polychrests. This central idea is found on mental, emotional and physical levels, so that it is of great help in the differential diagnosis (e.g.: ARS.: "tendency to self-preservation"; LACH.: "overstimulation which seeks an outlet"; NUX-V.: "efforts beyond the abilities"; PLAT.: "excessive needs, who seeks for balance" etc.)
This series of books chronologically follows Vassilis' seminars, so that the keen reader can take advantage of this evolution. For that reason, this series is the best written course in Classical Homeopathy. Beginning student homeopaths can - via this series - practically learn how to use Kent's Repertory and Boericke's Materia Medica and also understand the practical application of The Organon and The Chronic Diseases by Hahnemann. Experienced homeopaths can test the established information of this series by their own practice.
"... As far as I have seen, Vassilis has given a correct presentation of what I have taught him over the years. I think he has produced a very well done and informative series of books which will be of great help to the homeopathic community ..."
George Vithoulkas' comment proves that Vassilis Ghegas has continued the work he started under his supervision at the Athenian School for Homeopathy.
