Homeopathic Proving Trials

Homeopathic Proving Trials Overview 

AMCH conducts homeopathic research by doing Homeopathic Proving Trials.  Provings are a method to determine the healing power of natural substances. They form the core of our understanding of homeopathic remedies, providing the data to select the remedy that matches the case before you. All AMCH Homeopathic Proving Trials are Hahnemannian Provings conducted in a manner consistent with national standards for such trials (North American Network of Homeopathic Education Proving Standards) and the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States.  They are also consistent with National Repertorization Guidelines

What is a Homeopathic Proving Trial?

A proving is a carefully conducted study in which new remedies are discovered for use in homeopathic treatment. Provings involve ‘healthy’ individuals taking a prepared homeopathic remedy. In this process, the symptoms experienced by provers are collectively analyzed to build the foundations of a remedy picture for a homeopathic medicine to be used in treating the sick.

All homeopathic provings conducted by AMCH have been published by Desert Institute Publishing and are available from the AMCH Bookstore, 602-347-7951

Homeopathic Medicine Preparation for Provings

Homeopathic medicines are prepared using standard homeopathic methodology.  Most of the homeopathic medicines are available from the Hahnemann Pharmacy, in Oakland California, as well as other homeopathic manufacturers.
