North American School of Veterinary Homeopathy (NASVH) provides training for veterinarians in the medical art of classical homeopathy. 

Our unique homeopathy training program is a hybrid course that combines the best of in-person and on-line learning to respect your busy lifestyle. The next course begins in May 2023. The first and fifth sessions are in-person, conveniently located in the middle of the country with a local airport within 3 miles of the training location in beautiful, downtown Traverse City, Michigan. Sessions 2, 3 and 4 are a combination of live on-line training and work-at-your-own-pace learning. 

As our students move through the sessions, the concepts of homeopathic healing begin with acute illness and injuries and progress to the treatment of chronic disease. In addition to homeopathic training for acute and chronic ailments, students will learn additional measures that can support health, including fresh food nutrition and when to include other modalities to encourage healing. Each faculty instructor will also discuss their business model for integrating homeopathy into their practices.

All students of this course will receive a 1-year complementary membership in the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy. Upon successful completion of the course, students will be eligible to pursue their Certification in Veterinary Homeopathy (CVH). There are also many opportunities for continuing education in homeopathy, from the annual AHVMA conferences to the advanced meeting in veterinary homeopathy provided by Dr. Pitcairn and his homeopathic colleagues.

A Course on Quantum Healing

Science has evolved beyond the limited perspective of materialism, making it now possible to condense and integrate many of the different empirical healing rituals of history into one comprehensive, logically congruent, and simple technology of healing. The scientific approach makes the practice of holistic medicine far simpler and easier than you ever imagined.

This is an intensive four-day course in a rural Idaho setting for individuals and/or very small groups.
