Is the Art of Homeopathy being Lost in the Striving for Standardization? 

NASH is dedicated to peer review and case submissions as the essential elements in the vetting of a knowledgeable and competent homeopath.  This reflects our recognition that homeopathy is not just a scientific method attainable by any that can read and memorize. Homeopathy is a pure discipline which stands on its own with unique principles and techniques.

NASH was originally founded and is primarily dedicated to the professional homeopath who generally has no prior allopathic medical training; it is at this point of educational development that an individual possesses a mind that is most open to homeopathic thinking. The growing reputation of homeopathy as a true healing art is founded on the consistent healing work of dedicated lay people, hereafter called professional homeopaths.

The success of any homeopath depends on his/her ability to build rapport with clients, find a curative remedy, interpret reactions to that remedy and make changes in potency and/or remedy in a logical, well thought-out manner, according to homeopathic principles.  Credentials alone do not make a true practitioner of the homeopathic art of healing.  Those most skilled in healing with this art in North America are rarely medically licensed or regulated by any government body alleviating the need to rid themselves of the inherent prejudices formed in the allopathic method of medical training.  Rather, their minds are more malleable to the unique perception needed to practice homeopathy; to listen not only with their ears and eyes, but also with their hearts - finding simillimums by careful observation including use of their intuitions, imaginations, and intellects.
In this spirit NASH wishes to grow our profession and participate in acknowledging minimum competencies to be reached before one calls him or herself a homeopathic practitioner and charges for his/her services.  NASH believes the standards needing to be taught to achieve these competencies should reflect the reality of our schools as they are, not as we wish them to be. A basic outline of material expected to be addressed in homeopathic education needs to be available to schools in order for them to incorporate these materials in ways they see fit. We believe that there are a variety of philosophies and teaching styles and that each has its own merits. If one can study to understand the basic homeopathic principles, take a case, analyze the case and give a remedy, follow the case and explain one’s logical reasoning to another homeopath, NASH feels inclusion in our professional body is appropriate.  We support an objective written measure to show proficiency in knowledge of our philosophy, various methods of dosage, approaches to remedy selection, use of reference materials and familiarity with NASH history. 
The highest goal in homeopathy is freedom for the client.  This cannot be fully attained without freedom for ourselves as practitioners.  We cannot lose sight of this without putting our art in jeopardy.

Continued discussion about this position and other NASH topics will be the subject of our next webinar - for NASH member's only - by NASH's President, Tanya Kell, RSHom(NA).  See below for more information about this event.
