The Professional Members of the Australian Homoeopathic Association in Tasmania are proud to host the 9th Australian Homœopathic Medicine Conference at the RACV/RACT Hobart Apartment Hotel, Hobart, Australia, from 24 – 26 October 2014. The conference theme is ‘Grass Roots Homeopathy – Back to Basics’.
Grass Roots Homoeopathy is not just about ‘Classical’ Homoeopathy. It’s about going back to our basic tools as Homoeopaths and making sure we’re as good as we can be. It’s about remembering the important skills that we may have forgotten along the way, and it’s about honoring both the mistakes and triumphs that we and others have had that have caused us to learn and grow as people, and as a profession.
AHMC’s 2014 keynote speaker is Joe Kellerstein. Through his post-graduate program, Dr Joe Kellerstein has made it a ‘mission’ to re-introduce our community of homoeopaths to the principles and practice of original Hahnemannian medicine. This program encompasses the same methods that created astounding cures detailed in thousands of pages of journal articles over two centuries, and his mission for the Conference is to take us back to these basics.
You are invited to join the Australian homœopathic community and associated practitioners for a unique experience of the very best in homœopathy and a weekend of fun, laughter and sharing of experiences. Enhance your ideas and alight your enthusiasm as some of the very best in the profession feed your passion for this wonderful art and science of homœopathy.

Functional Disorders: The Vital Language of the Life Force
was privileged to have the late homoeopath and pharmacist, Robert Beheit, as a teacher and I still remember my first lecture on homoeopathy. It was a moment of enlightenment, akin to Saul on the road to Damascus, when he explained the basic tenets of homoeopathy including the concept that homoeopathy could potentially clear the inherited or developed predisposition to disease. There was no turning back from that moment.
