Classical Miasmatic Constitutional Homeopathy
-a member of the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis (LMHI)
-a member of the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH)
The, later founding, members of the Homeopathic Academy – physician Othonos Athos, veterinarian Sakka Zoitsa, biopathologist Fanariotis Dionysis, physician and anesthesiologist Savvas Ioannides, psychiatrist Dimitris Livas and gynecologist Sipsas Ioannis – met a few years before the founding of the Academy.
After discussions with each other, they realized that in Greece, in the field of homeopathetic practices, the methods prevailing were methods like the mechanical Repertorization, the superficial Key-Note Prescribing, the Computer Expert Systems or the Sensation Homeopathy – methods that have huge differences with Classical Homeopathy and whose therapeutic results are superficial and temporary. In addition, the cost to receive training in Homeopathy was too high, discouraging people from the field of health from getting familiar with it, and that training was not at all inclusive, but rather focused on specific methods of Homeopathy.
So, the founders felt the need to create a Homeopathic Scientific Association, that would promote Classical Homeopathy, focusing on the Laws of Homeopathy, the Miasmatic Theory of Hahnemann and the notion of Temperament, as developed by Kent. An Association with trainers that would offer their knowledge willingly and for free to their colleagues, and that would promote pluralism, solidarity and unity with other Homeopathic Associations.
As a result of all these discussions, the Homeopathic Academy was born. The intention of its founders was embodied in the Academy’s Statutes and more specifically, in the Academy’s Goal, the Academy’s Principles and the Academy’s Actions, as presented below.
To promote Homeopathic Medicine among the Medical Community and the general public, in Greece and abroad.
The Academy respects every different scientific opinion of its members and promotes them both through its educational procedures, and its events. Furthermore, the Academy invites non-members or members of other Scientific Associations who hold different opinions, in the educational events it organizes. The trainees and the members of the Academy are to decide if these different scientific opinions will be accepted and implemented. It is a Principle of the Academy to put every scientific opinion to trial, both in theory and therapeutic practice, without prejudice.
2. Scientific Homeopathy based on Laws:
Homeopathy by definition is a Therapeutic System firstly established by Samuel Hahnemann, which follows diagnostic and therapeutic rules like the Law of Similarity, the Law of the Whole, the Law of Hierarchy, the Law of Individualization, and Law of the Direction of Cure. This is the kind of Homeopathy the Academy promotes. Despite all this, it is legitimate that differences will appear in the ways scientists practice these Laws, and the Academy is obliged by its principles, to promote well-meaning dialogue.
Ηοmeopathic Medicine is by definition Medicine, in the sense of diagnostics and cure, so it should be practiced only by medical doctors. Also, these doctors should be adequately trained in Homeopathy.
Based on the Laws of Homeopathy, and especially the Law of the Whole, the Academy believes that Homeopathy is a Holistic Therapeutic System. Hence, it promotes not only the adequacy of the doctor in the field of Homeopathy, but also their medical training in every diagnostic and therapeutic system, without bigotry and prejudice. Also, it promotes the implementation of multiple therapeutic system by the same of different doctors. Our one and only goal is the benefaction of the patient and the implementation of the Hippocratic quote “Benefit; do not harm”.
The Academy respects every Diagnostic and Therapeutic system and promotes the dialogue and cooperation among them, as long as this does not contradict its Principles and Goal.
The Academy does not support any diagnostic or therapeutic practice that harm the patient as a whole. On the contrary, it promotes any action that contributes to the relief of the patient and the welfare of the Human Being.
The Academy, in order to protect its moral and scientific integrity, chooses to abstain from any cooperation, financial or other, with speculative enterprises in the field of Health, even if it’s done under the cover of charity towards the patients.
The Academy trains doctors of every medical field, dentists, veterinarians, pharmacologists and students of all respective medical schools. Also, in accordance with its Holistic Philosophy, it promotes training in other diagnostic and therapeutic systems, which could increase the therapeutic abilities of its members.
2. The information of the public:
The Academy organizes events to inform the public on Homeopathy and other health issues.
3 Promotion of Homeopathy in the Medical System:
The Academy acts upon the promotion of the practice of Homeopathy, both through the State Health System and Private Health Carriers.
4 Community spirit:
The Academy acts upon the creation of community spirit among its members and friends, by holding meetings, events, discussions, trips etc.

Modern Medicine controls the symptoms. Homeopathy evaluates the symptoms, as it seems to be the key of finding the right homeopathic medicine, which ‘’uproots’’ the disease.
Unfortunately, there is not one sole answer. Every disease and every patient requires a special, different treatment. This is why you have to discuss it with Homeopathic doctor.
They are. Start by showering with warm water and then change to cold. You should finish every shower with cold water. This will tone up your nervous and immune system. Τhe changes between warm and cold water should last for 5 minutes tops and always in a proportion of 4:1 (warm-cold).
