The Baltimore Homeopathic Study Group is a group of lay persons that meets every month to learn and discuss homeopathy. Meetings are informal and we try to make them fun events. Every month's meeting focuses on a different topic, so over the course of a year we cover most aspects of homeopathic self care. Meeting are balanced between talks by local homeopathic and alternative practitioners and meetings taught by group members. All levels of experience are welcome, from complete newcomer to experienced practitioner. The Baltimore Homeopathic Study Group is affiliated with the National Center for Homeopathy, a national organization dedicated to the promotion of homeopathy and the education of individuals in the use of homeopathy.
Serious but treatable conditions need to be treated by homeopaths who are trained medical professionals and can coordinate treatment with that of other medical professionals. But this leaves a wide range of conditions that can be cured homeopathically by the interested layperson, including some conditions which are not curable by conventional medicine, such as viral infections. The study group discusses how you can use homeopathy to treat bruises and minor injuries, headaches, colds and the flu, diarrhea and upset stomach, and other non-serious conditions. Knowing how to use homeopathy effectively for you and your family can give you great peace of mind and a sense of empowerment.
The study group meets the first Monday of every month at 7 PM, except when this falls on a holiday. We meet at the Idlewylde United Methodist Church 1000 Regester Avenue, a little north of the city line (click for a map). If Baltimore County schools have been closed because of inclement weather, the meeting will be cancelled. Otherwise, the meeting will take place as usual.
Homeopathic remedies are made from a variety of plant, mineral, and animal sources. The proper remdy for an illness is chosen by the Law of Similars. At the December meeting we will discuss homeopathic remedies made from common spices and plants associated with Christmas. Our December meeting always starts with a little holiday party. If you wish, bring a small snark or dessert. If not, just bring yourself.
