Doctor of Sacred Homeotherapeutics (D.H.)
“Homeo” comes from the Greek word and means “similar” or “like.” “Therapeutics” also comes from Greek, meaning “treatment of disease.” Thus Homeotherapeutics comprises the treatment of disease by using similar or like means, which has a, heretofore, unrecognized dual aspect. Homeopathy proper, of Samuel Hahnemann’s original school, is only one method of therapy under Homeotherapeutics and I believe this term should be reserved for this method. This Course will be concerned with not only classical Homeopathy with its historical evolution, but its scientific explanations and developments brought forward by the whole process which developed from this revolution in thinking. What grew out of homeopathic practice, clinical experiences and thought, were many schools and forms of therapeutics.
Homeopathy began as a medical system from vitalism, the doctrine that life processes arise from or contain a nonmaterial vital principle and cannot be explained entirely as physical and chemical phenomena. As Homeopathy developed, chemical analysis was developing and the importance of nutrition for both plants and animals was being recognized. Homeopathy evovled into the budding fields of nutrition, isopathy, herbal medicine, radionics and occurred as man was capturing the elusive electromagnetic force in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Radionics grew from homeotherapeutics, which uses electrical and magnetic devices, and emerged in the early 20th century from the discovery of electricity and electromagnetism which was being created and harnessed for use and work. It was an exciting age from candlelight to the light bulb of Thomas Edison, and the generation of usable electricity from Nicola Tesla at Niagra Falls where the first major Hydroelectric Power Plant in the World was established.
Radionic phenomena however, like spiritual and faith healing, often occurs outside space and time and even by distance, by which patient and therapist are separated and is not the focus of this course.
In the 20th century, bioenergetics emerged as more had been observed and learned from life’s interactions with the electromagnetic spectrum. Bioenergetic medicine is based upon the observation that non-ionizing radiations, both through air and water (including biologic fluids), can have profound therapeutic applications. As maintained by Hahnemann, Hering and Fincke, and demonstrated by the work of the Austrian Provers' Union, the dynamic potentized drug is the chief factor in both proving and healing. Like magnetized water (Magnetis Polus Australis - South pole of the magnet, and Magnetis Polus Arcticus.--North pole of the magnet) and other ‘imponderabilia’ of its day, electricity and the X-ray were both capable of potentization from exposed water vials, and their potentized dynamic remedies were shown to be just as superior to the polycrest homeopathic remedies as Aurum (Gold), Lycopodium, Silicea or Sulphur. All things homeopathic.
Applicant must be trained and/or gainfully engaged in a private health practice; or other qualifications such public health nurse, physician's assistant, acupuncturist, massage therapist, etc.
Additionally, the candidate must complete our Master of Herbology course due to the fact that Herbal Medicine is one of the core aspects of homeopathy.

Dr Stuart M. CLOSE
MANY of the articles which make up this book were originally prepared and delivered as lectures for the Senior Classes of the New-York Homœopathic Medical College, during my engagement as Professor of Homœopathic Philosophy, 1909-1913. Most of them, after revision, have appeared during the past four years in the Department of Homœopathic Philosophy conducted by me in The Homœopathic Recorder. Revised again, they are now issued in compliance with many requests from readers of The Recorder and others, who have expressed their belief that they are worthy of preservation and that their publication in book form will serve a useful purpose.
In discussing Hahnemannian principles from, a modern standpoint I hope to contribute something toward a renewal of interest in the science and art of therapeutic medication as exemplified in Homœopathy, of which the medical profession is much in need.
A review of current literature and neighborly relations with many physicians of the dominant school of medicine reveals not only a more friendly spirit than formerly existed, but an active interest in what their homœopathic brethren have to offer toward the solution of therapeutic problems and a duke to co-operate. The era of therapeutic nihilism is passing away. Thinking men and leaders of the dominant school are ready to participate in a scientific discussion of the theory and principles of therapeutic medication from a homœopathic standpoint when approached in a non-sectarian spirit. They are becoming more generally receptive of the idea of the existence of a general principle or law of therapeutic medication than ever before and more willing to consider evidence submitted in favor of that proposition. They rightly hold, however, that the evidence to be submitted should be prepared in such a manner as to comply with the requirements of scientific research. Leaving that phase of the subject to the scientific and research workers' and others to whom it may be congenial, and not forgetting the many in our own school who are interested, it seems permissible to present once more, as simply and attractively as possible, an exposition of the logical, historical and philosophical principles upon which Homœopathy is based and attempt to show, at least suggestively, its relation as a department of general medicine to other sciences. That is the object of this book. It makes no pretensions to being "scientific." It is conceived and submitted in a fraternal and philosophic spirit, however far it may fall short of adequate expression.
