This is part of series on Homeopathy Teachers by Homeopathy Resource.
Jeremy Sherr is an excellent teacher of homeopathy. He has re-introduced old and new methods of doing accurate homeopathic provings and has written a popular book about it and also teaches it.
From his Web site:
“Jeremy was born in South Africa and grew up in Israel. He began his studies at the College of Homœopathy, London, in 1980 and completed a degree simultaneously in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Though he practices classical homœopathy exclusively, his knowledge of Chinese Medicine shines through his homœopathic thinking.
Jeremy was the first to re-develop the science and art of provings after a century of near silence. In 1982 he conducted his first proving of Scorpion, and has since completed 23 Hahnemannian provings, including Hydrogen, Chocolate, Diamond, Salmon and Germanium. These remedies are now well established in our repertories and materia medicas, and are being used successfully all over the world. Jeremy’s work “The Dynamics and Methodology of Homœopathic Provings” has become the accepted guideline for provings, and has been translated into French, German, Italian and Russian. His latest book, “Dynamic Materia Medica – Syphilis” is an innovative presentation of his unique ideas on philosophy and materia medica that has received excellent reviews worldwide.
Jeremy began teaching while still in college. He taught in most British schools, and began the Dynamis School in 1985. His school is the longest running post-graduate course in the UK. He has taught the Dynamis curriculum throughout Europe and North America, and has lectured in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, India and China. He maintains a busy practice in Malvern, New York and Tel Aviv. Jeremy is acknowledged by the homœopathic community as a brilliant and creative thinker who is well grounded in the philosophy and writings of Hahnemann. His lectures are an inspiring blend of classical homœopathy and original thought, delivered with vitality and humour. His practical teachings are live cases with long-term follow up. As a homœopathic practitioner, Jeremy is known for his unprejudiced clarity and profound insight.
He was awarded a fellowship from the Society of Homeopaths in 1991 and a Ph.D. from Medicina Alternativa. He is a Member of the North American Society of Homeopaths, and is an honorary professor of Yunan Medical College, Kunming, China.”
Much to the chagrin and opposition by Drug Company representatives and supporters who have a strong African market, Jeremy Sherr has initiated an AIDS project:
Our project has several objectives; 1) To treat as many AIDS patients as possible, so as to relieve suffering 2) To develop a homoeopathic understanding of the disease. This understanding should enable us to list the homeopathic remedies which are most successful in treating AIDS. 3) To make our project sustainable by spreading this knowledge and the related remedies throughout Tanzania and Africa, so that local health practitioners will be able to prescribe these remedies to large masses of people. 4) To produce formal research on the treatment of AIDS with homoeopathy so as to show the world what it is able to achieve.
Together with Sigsbert Rwegasira, a Tanzanian homoeopath, and other international homoeopaths, Jeremy will initially create a clinical and teaching infrastructure in Tanzania. Once this is established, more homeopaths will come to Tanzania to participate in the project. When this mechanism is fully operational, we aim to open homoeopathic schools in Tanzania and throughout the whole of Africa, training doctors, homeopathic professionals, nurses and local practitioners.
We have the support of several eminent homeopathic researchers, as well as the Muhumbili University of Health Sciences in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and the Department of Integrative Medicine at the University of Maryland, USA.
