Description: Troublesome Twosomes
Many remedies involve troubled interpersonal relationships, and some entire plant families or groupings focus on this theme. Each, however, approaches relations and solves their difficulties in relating in their own unique way. We will present one such plant family and show how each member experiences problems in relationships. During this seminar, we will examine how one set of plants get what they need from the relationships they form and what problems they encounter. With in each group, the individual members have the group theme as a back drop to their own unique manifestations. Through materia medica and case examples the themes as well as the individual remedy characteristics will be shown. Using this family as a model, it is possible to understand other plant families and how those remedies demonstrate themes and individuality as expressed in their materia medica.
Frans Vermeulen Bio:
Frans Vermeulen is recognized throughout the homeopathic world as an author, lecturer and authority on materia medica. Each of the many books he has authored makes a contribution of major significance to our understanding of substances and materia medica. His lectures are inspiring and appreciated for their liveliness, depth of knowledge and breadth of factual information.
Born in Den Helder, Holland, Frans taught at an elementary school from 1970
to 1978. From 1976 – 1983 he pursued his homeopathic education, while beginning his own practice in 1979. At this time, he had begun to translate homeopathic books by masters such as Kent, Allen, Tyler, Vithoulkas, and many others. In 1985 he wrote Kindertypes in de Homoeopathie (Children types in Homoeopathy), based on his experiences as both a teacher and a homeopath.
In 1992 he wrote Synoptic Materia Medica I, providing a materia medica overview as well as a quick and compact reference. This was followed in 1994 by the Concordant Materia Medica, which was enlarged in 1997 to include Hering’s Guiding Symptoms. Synoptic Materia Medica II broke new ground by focusing on small remedies and the correlations between the sources of the homeopathic remedies and how they relate to the drug pictures. Furthering that theme, Prisma Materia Medica (2002) takes data from non-homoeopathic sources as both reference material for the homoeopathic materia medica and as the source of potential symptoms. Frans’ other two books are Kingdom Monera and Viruses (2005) followed by Kingdom Fungi in 2007. In recent years he has produced the new and updated Concordant Reference (2012) and Synoptic Reference (2013).
Now, after seven years in the making, Frans is finishing his book on Kingdom Plants. Co-authored by his wife, Dr. Linda Johnston, the book discusses over 2000 plant remedies in 149 families following the latest classification system, APG II. Family themes are elucidated based on botanical classifications, phytochemicals, botany, traditional uses, folklore, history and many other sources, further supported by homeopathic information from provings, cases and other materia medica sources.
Linda Johnston Bio:
Linda Johnston, MD, has been a active member of the homeopathic community worldwide since the inception of her homeopathic practice in 1986. After completing her medical training from the University of Washington in 1979, she had one further year in family medicine. She started her own private medical practice in 1981. Linda began her homeopathic training in 1986, and began practicing the same year. Linda’s main focus has always been her clinical practice of homeopathy, which she continues to this day.
Contributing to the homeopathic community through writing and teaching are both important to Linda. From 1991 – 1996, she developed and taught a two-year homeopathy curriculum in 4 different US cities to train licensed medical practitioners. She is also a well-known teacher internationally.
Author of numerous articles for homeopathy journals, Linda is also the author of the scholarly, Additions to the Homeopathic Repertory from Kent’s lectures on Homeopathic Materia Medica, as well as a popular book for the general public, Everyday Miracles: Homeopathy in Action. Since her debut public lecture in 1987, she has made hundreds of radio, television appearances, in addition to print media interviews educating the public about homeopathy.
Linda’s current projects include a book on the treatment of children using the new techniques in homeopathy, a Child’s World. Additionally, she is co-authoring, with her husband Frans Vermeulen, a comprehensive work on plants and plant families.
