The history of Homeopathic Academy

Seven years ago, in 2007, the later founding members of Homeopathic Academy, met and participated in a three-year homeopathic seminar for doctors, dentists, and veterinarians run by Dr. Othonos Athos. Most of them were already members of other Homeopathic Medical Associations. Some of them have been practicing Homeopathy for decades, others were practicing it the last few years.

The common ground for discussion and cooperative action was the realization that although in the beginning what prevailed in homeopathic practice in Greece was Classical Homeopathy, the last many years, things have changed dramatically. Methods that violate homeopathic laws like Symptom or Disease Oriented "Homeopathy" or even worse, methods like Complex "Homeopathy" were spreading fast. Moreover, many homeopathic doctors have turned into practicing mechanical Repertorization, superficial Key-Note Prescribing or mechanical prescribing by the aid of Computer Expert Systems.

Accordingly, the latter mechanical and superficial methods of prescribing have also prevailed in homeopathic education. The trainee, most of the times, after completing his homeopathic education, found himself unable to practice Homeopathy independently and efficiently and had to choose between giving up homeopathic practice or becoming dependent on homeopathic firms.

Such was the reality in the field of Homeopathy in Greece when the founders of this homeopathic association decided to establish Homeopathic Academy in 2013. In the meantime, the original educational program of 2007 was expanded and enriched and became the official educational program of Homeopathic Academy.


Just another Homeopathic Medical Association?

The aim of the founders was not to create just another isolated homeopathic medical society “of their own”. It was crucial that the negative experience of the past become a lesson for the present and future of Homeopathy in Greece. So, the new association was established on strict principles that would promote unity, solidarity, pluralism and integral scientific education. Homeopathic Academy is addressed both to medical doctors (basic training) and to medical doctors already practicing or studying Homeopathy (post-training).

The aim is to “produce” independent, self-efficient, knowledgeable, open-minded medical scientists with holistic thinking and attitude. Scientists that can apply Homeopathy either as main or complementary therapeutic practice in all forms of medical practice (private practice, group practice, hospitals, acute and chronic illnesses, emergencies, etc.). Homeopathic doctors that work according to the principle of unity and cooperation with other homeopathic doctors and with the General Medical Community.



The promotion of Homeopathic Medicine among the Medical Community and the general public, in Greece and abroad



Medical Doctors, Dentists, Veterinarians, Pharmacists and students of the above fields


Our Principles

The founding seven principles that govern Homeopathic Academy and its Board of Directors are specifically mentioned in the Articles of Association and are briefly the following:

1. Scientific Pluralism

Respect of different scientific opinions and hosting of all scientific opinions in its educational program and activities

2. Scientific Homeopathy based on Laws

Law of Similarity, Law of the Whole, Law of Hierarchy, Law of Individualization, Law of the Direction of Cure

3. Scientific Adequacy

Homeopathy should be practiced only by medical doctors, dentists and veterinarians that are adequately trained in Homeopathy

4. Holistic Therapeutic Thinking

The patient must be dealt as a whole both diagnostically and therapeutically. The homeopathic doctor must be acquainted with all therapeutic systems and, where needed, should employ more than one system if possible. Otherwise, he should cooperate with doctors of other therapeutic systems

5. Unity in Homeopathy and between Homeopathic and the Medical Community

Unity and cooperation among homeopathic doctors, among homeopathic medical associations and among the Homeopathic and the Medical Community

6. “Benefit; do not harm”

The doctor must abstain from diagnostic or therapeutic actions that can harm the patient in any way

7. Moral and Scientific Integrity

Abstaining 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



By now, despite its short existence, Homeopathic Academy has achieved a lot.

-Is a Member of the Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis (LHMI)

-Is a Member of the European Committee for Homeopathy (ECH)

-Is a Member of the Educational Subcommittee of the ECH

-Is an Accredited Teaching Center of the ECH

-It grants the European Diploma for Homeopathy issued by ECH for medical doctors after the successful completion of a free three-year educational course by the candidate. This program meets the standards set by ECH and LMHI (Liga Medicorum Homeopathica Internationalis)

-Has achieved an important bridge for communication and cooperation with the General Medical Community, since its educational program for the academic year 2014-15 was conducted at the amphitheater of Microbiology at the Athens Medical School of the State University of Athens and from there on its educational program is conducted at the amphitheater of the Red Cross State Hospital.

-It promotes Classical Homeopathy by adopting the Miasmatic Constitutional Homeopathy, a method that fully respects Homeopathic Laws and thus is at the same time scientific and therapeutically effective

-It unites scientists with respect to their scientific independence, who offer selflessly and with joy to their new colleagues and to society

-It keeps uploading numerous informational, scientific and educational data (articles, books, lessons, videos, etc.) at its web page giving to scientists and to the general public access to knowledge about Homeopathy and general health matters
