Homeopathic Training and Certification

Recommended Posts

What kind of homeopathic training and certification is there?

Independent post-graduate training programs offer professional education in homeopathy. Programs range from a weekend to several years. Learning experiences may be through correspondence courses, lecture, classroom settings, and/or preceptorships with experienced homeopaths. In recent years, the Accreditation Commission for Homeopathic Education in North America (ACHENA) has begun certifying the content and structure of homeopathic courses. Practitioners may be certified by one of several certifying organizations based on their medical professional status and their homeopathic education. Such certification attests that a practitioner has met certain criteria and developed a certain level of expertise in homeopathic practice. A license to practice medicine does not guarantee that a practitioner is a good homeopath. Similarly, a well-trained homeopath may not be licensed to diagnose and treat patients in a given area. If you have questions about a specific category of practitioner, contact the certifying organization directly for more detailed information about the qualifications and standards they employ or for a list of practitioners they have certified.

What happens during a homeopathic consultation and what does it cost?

The first visit usually lasts one to two hours. During the visit, the homeopath will review the patient’s medical history and attempt to elicit a full picture of the patient’s symptoms—mental, emotional, and physical. A homeopathic medicine will be chosen to match the patient’s symptom profile. Scheduling of follow-up visits will vary depending on the needs of the patient and the practitioner’s philosophy; intervals of four to six weeks are typical. A follow-up visit normally lasts 30–60 minutes. The cost of a first visit to a homeopath varies and typically ranges from $150 to $500 depending on the skills and experience of the practitioner and the area of the country in which you live.

Will my health insurance cover it?

Your health insurance may cover part or all of your visits depending on your practitioner’s health-care license or certification qualifications and their participation with your insurance plan.
