 About this course

Acute care is where “the rubber meets the road” in homeopathic practice. With an acute care kit, a few well-selected books, and the right training, you can reduce suffering, save money, and safely and gently curtail acute illnesses. With healthcare costs skyrocketing, insurance deductibles increasing drastically, medication toxicities becoming more frequent, and the threat of epidemics looming, there is no better time than now to master acute homeopathy. 

 For those of you who are already versed in homeopathy, you will be hard-pressed to find a more information-packed, enjoyable review course-- taught by such experienced healthcare providers and teachers!
