I am so excited that 2 veterinarians (one an ophthalmologist) are committed to taking this wonderful 6 day introduction to homeopathy and improved health for our animals. 5 veterinarians at a local CE meeting said they are interested. Many clients have said they are interested in the class.
As a veterinarian, you will learn basic principles of healing applicable to any healing modality you use, and for any species. You will have acute remedy choices to help in your practice. You will understand which cases to refer now to trained veterinary homeopaths. You will have strategies to continue to learn and will know if this is a modality you wish to pursue with more training and certification.
As a pet parent, you will be able to have healthier animals who often live longer. You will save money in health care. You will be able to treat many problems yourself and know the potential risks. You will be able to work more closely with your homeopathic veterinarian thereby increasing the chances of deeply curing your companions. You will know if you wish to pursue training in homeopathy to treat people and animals.

I had the pleasure of attending a workshop you conducted in VT a couple of years ago – homeopathy for animals – It was wonderful and I’ve utilized the information extensively! thank you — my husband (an equine dentist) and I run the farm here with the utmost care taken to make sure we and the animals we caretake are offered the best species appropriate nutrition and are accosted with as little chemical warfare as possible. We would never be able to afford to foster the dogs and horses we do if we relied on a call to the vet every week! Stacy Scotia (healingspiritfarm)
I took your class few years ago. Wonderful course. This would be a refresher plus a lot of new information. What I learned from the first class has been very beneficial. It saved my dogs life and has helped in many other medical situations. Thx soo much. Robin Byrd, from veterinary holistic care, Bethesda Maryland
I attended one of her weekend seminars in MD. I still refer to my tapes and notes from that seminar. She is funny, interesting and a great teacher. In my opinion, anyone who has been lucky enough to attend one of her seminars will have an awesome experience. Rosemarie Smith
Christina’s knowledge & love of her subject is obvious. She makes the class fun, yet ensures you get through all the needed material. If you have animals, come learn the correct way to administer homeopathic remedies from Dr. Chambreau. You’ll be able to handle traumas and emergencies for your pet until you get veterinary help. And your pets can be healthier and live longer. Wellness is possible – get the knowledge from Dr. Chambreau, do your homework, and become part of the NCH network. Your animals will thank you for it! Christina really did a super job of giving us useful information & extra information (like additions to repertory). I loved getting all of the resources, and also really appreciate Christina’s recommendations on resources (not just listing them).
I really do value your class and your teaching. You are so real and really get people excited about this because you are…about this and about life. I do believe our overall commitment is to have hope and to act on that hope. You certainly are doing this. Dr. Joan Timinsky
BOOKS REQUIRED (Not for day one)
A Repertory and a Materia Medica will be required if you are taking the entire 6 day class. A Repertory is an index of symptoms that is used to select a homeopathic remedy. This book will be used constantly in prescribing homeopathically. It is recommended that you begin with Kent’s Repertory. You may wish to purchase other repertories – now or in the future – but only one is required for the classes. You will also need a Materia Medica – a reference book that describes each homeopathic remedy in detail. Recomended if you are new to Homeopathy is Boericke’s Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica/New Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica or Clarke’s Dictionary of Practical materia Medica.
Once you have registered for the classes, it is recommended that you begin reading some of the required books ahead of time.
1. Repertory of the Homeopathic Materia Medica – J.T. Kent –
there are many different sizes and quality. when you register we will help you select and order the books.
There are many other, newer, repertories. If you pursue homeopathy you will be adding them. for this class and to begin your use of homeopathy – Kent is very inexpensive and sufficient.
2. Pocket Manual of Homoeopathic Materia Medica / New Manual of Homeopathic
While this does have a repertory, it is not sufficient for the course or your practice.
3. Organon of the Medical Art – Samuel Hahnemann – Edited by Wenda O’Reilly
There are other, less expensive versions of the Organon that you may purchase. I find this one to be much more accessible and worth the extra money in the long run.
4. A Tutorial and Workbook for the Homeopathic Repertory, Second Edition by Karen B. Allen and Christina Chambreau
A Tutorial and Workbook for the Homeopathic Repertory can be purchased online at Nature-Reveals and Whole Health Now
This is one of the most practical books to understand the repertory, understand selection of the best symptoms, understand the limitations of the repertory and get lots of practice.
