Following the highly successful congresses of recent years, with up to 500 participants from 30 countries, we are now pleased to announce the upcoming 2014 homeopathy congress: "Homeopathy – from childhood to old age." Leading homeopaths from around the world will be presenting their individual approaches to the treatment of children and elderly patients - from ADHD, behavioural disturbances, and typical illnesses of childhood through Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and other chronic illnesses that occur more often with increasing age. A multifaceted congress that promises to be a highlight for 2014.
The popular Dutch doctor Resie Moonen kicks off the congress with her report on the Lanthanides for children. She presents impressive cases of learning and behavioural difficulties as well as autoimmune disease. The English doctor Jonathan Hardy, who was very enthusiastically received at previous congresses, shows the great potential of spider remedies for children with problems such as ADHD, sleeplessness, and motor disturbances. NEW: Sunirmal Sarkar (another insider’s tip) gives valuable notes on the homeopathic treatment of Alzheimer’s disease as well as on the application of potentised chemotherapy as treatment of cancer.
On the second day, the well-known Indian homeopath Alok Pareek draws on his extensive clinical experience to discuss neurological disturbances, including the major theme of "Alzheimer's dementia" in elderly patients. Rosina Sonnenschmidt offers reports of healed cases of muscular atrophy, borreliosis, and early-onset dementia, including some powerful live cases. The French doctor Jean-Lionel Bagot shows how he treats cancer patients, achieving an astonishing reduction in the severity of side effects from conventional treatment. On the final day the Israeli homeopath Michal Yakir, who shows how childhood behavioural disturbances can be treated with the insights from her groundbreaking discoveries in the typology of plants. Heidi Brand and Norbert Groeger introduce us to the remedy picture of the alga Chara intermedia, which has provoked a flurry of interest, proving especially popular for geriatric cases.

The popular natural healing practitioner and author Rosina Sonnenschmidt shows impressive healed cases of muscular atrophy, borreliosis, and early-onset dementia in children and the elderly.
The process of healing may be lengthy and complex but the importance of a holistic treatment plan focused on miasmatic and constitutional homeopathy becomes clear. In addition, she shows how it is always worthwhile to discover and mobilize the patient's self-healing powers. The examples, including live casetaking, also offer insights into the use of homeopathic preparations of allopathic medication such as Penicillinum, Acetysalicylicum acidum or Sulfonamidum.

Interview with Jean-Lionel Bagot
Sunday, March 16:
9 am – 11.00 pm
Michal Yakir: Childhood Behavioural Disturbances in the Light of the Plant System Michal Yakir is a homeopathic pioneer and has made the plant kingdom accessible for homeopathy. Her talk at the last congress attracted an amazing level of interest. Her upcoming presentation on behavioural disturbances in children shows how the plant system can be used to classify and successfully treat such conditions. She will focus especially on the many and fears and anxieties expressed by children. She has developed her own classification for the plant kingdom using a simple coordinate system of columns and rows: the “table of plants”. She will show how each column of the plant table can be assigned to different child types with specific psychological traits and physical pathologies. The ability to correctly recognize the special characteristics and themes of the columns is a great help in finding the best remedies for today's children. Language of lecture:English
