    The reason why we chose to have this seminar on pediatrics is quite clear to me, but I may have to explain that. When we treat children, it is very important to try and cure them Do you realize what the effect will be over time, if we are able to treat and cure children? In fact, we can prevent them from having all kinds of toxic drugs in the future and we are actually working on the improvement of health in general. Of course many of you are already practising for quite a long time, so I think most of you have already seen children in your practice, but it is good to have a seminar focused on children. Jonathan’s power of bringing remedies alive, impressed me so much, that I realized that it was very important for all of us to share this effect. It is not only the knowledge in homoeopathy; we have all kinds of books and we have computers: knowledge is present everywhere. Nowadays it is very important in homoeopathy to experience the remedies and also to be able to experience the remedies deep inside, it makes it easier for us to recognize the vibrations of the remedies in our patients.
    Jonathan was born in Cape Town, in South Africa, and there he graduated from medical school in 1968. But after he graduated from medical school he decided that he had learned everything except how to be healthy. So Jonathan decided to abandon medicine and he went in search of health, travelling extensively in Europe and the Middle East, ending up in America. There he worked for some time as a child-care worker, in a residential treatment centre for psychotic adolescents. All the time he pretended not to be a doctor, but in the end he realized that somehow he couldn’t escape it and he started to look for other ways of practising. For instance, he came upon Chinese medicine, and studied and practised acupuncture for quite a long time. Then somehow he started to read about homoeopathy. He read Kent and was very much impressed by this serious and God-fearing man, claiming all these things about homoeopathy, and he decided to investigate. At first Jonathan tried to find the homoeopathic remedies with the pendulum and for years he didn't get any results. Thenaremarkable thing occurred: Jonathan was in a pub somewhere in California and there was somebody in front of him, whose name was also Shore. They introduced themselves to each other and the other man appeared to be also a student in homoeopathy. The other man told Jonathan that he should use the repertory for his cases. At first Jonathan was rather reluctant to accept that, but the other man insisted. So in the first case that came along, Jonathan repertorized the case and came upon Sulphur. It was the case of a sixteen-year-old boy, who had had asthma all his life. Jonathan gave Sulphur and after those few little pellets the asthma was gone! It was such a striking thing. So he continued with homoeopathy, being very serious, studying his cases and reading Kent. Then in 1978 George Vithoulkas came to the United States and Jonathan spent many hundreds of hours with him. In the end he was so much under his influence that he decided to devote himself to the practice of homoeopathy. Jonathan is also one of the founders of the Hahnemann College of Homoeopathy (in the United States). Nowadays Jonathan has a practice in the United States and a part of his practice is pediatric. Iam very happy to be here; I enjoyed myself very much when I was here last time. It is wonderful that people are so enthusiastic. It is very different in America actually; here in Europe there is much more homoeopathy. And it is wonderful to be able to come and to have a lot of people attending and to know there is this interest. So in that sense I am actually very grateful tube here. And the other thing I would like to say is: of course, when one gives a seminar like this, there is a lot of work that goes into the preparation. The cases that I have chosen are cases I know, the remedy has worked, I have looked at the videos many times and I read the things. So it looks as if I know everything exactly and of course this is not true. I mean, we are all in the same boat. | struggle very hard with my cases; homoeopathy is very difficult for me and I don’t want you to have the idea that just because it comes so nicely and so clearly and so cleanly that it means: I have all this tremendous knowledge and you don’t know anything. We have to be very clear about all of this. We are here together and. so everyone has something that they can maybe contribute, and if you speak too much nonsense, I will tell you to keep quiet. So I want you to feel that you can speak and make your own suggestions and things like this. Maybe there are people here who are actually better homoeopaths than me: quite probably. And I know that in Europe you have many people who are of a tremendously high quality. So most of this will be on children. And what I have in mind is mostly video. I am not prepared to give much of a didactic lecture actually. And I am not prepared to give you full materia medica on the remedies. I assume that most people already know something about most of the polychrests and so we are not going to spend a lot of time giving information about the larger remedies. But we will look at the videos and try to see how this person is and how that person is and get some tips about this remedy and that remedy. Then a little bit more information about some of the smaller remedies. So I think I have about twenty-three different- remedies on the video and we will see as we go through how that is. I have prepared a lecture on otitis media, because you can’t do any pediatrics without otitis media, so I thought that would bea good sort of didactic lecture. Also I would like to give another lecture on the remedy Carcinosinum, because it is very common in my practice and so J have some experience with it. And even though I have seen much of the material which has come out of Europe, I feel that I still have something to add about it.
