Who We Are
The American Institute of Homeopathy, the oldest extant national physicians' organization in the US, has promoted homeopathic medicine as a medical specialty since 1844. Our members are licensed physicians (medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic), dentists, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants, and all of us are trained in homeopathic medicine as well as the medical/dental training required for our respective license. As licensed homeopaths, we are aware of the benefits and limits of both conventional and homeopathic medicine. When possible, we choose to promote the healing of our patients with homeopathic medicines because they are gentle yet highly efficacious. Whether you are a patient, a homeopathic colleague, a conventional (allopathic) healthcare provider, or simply a curious person, we welcome you to explore our website. If you have any questions, please contact us at
To your health and well-being,
Irene Sebastian, MD, PhD, DHt
President, American Institute of Homeopathy
To our Homeopathic Colleagues
You're on a bridge between two worlds -- share your journey with a community of like-minded homeopaths.
If you are a licensed physician (medical, osteopathic, or naturopathic), dentist, nurse practitioner or physician assistant, AIH membership has many benefits to offer you. Our online forum, in which we discuss homeopathic clinical concerns, research, ideas for future seminars, etc., provides a wonderful opportunity to stay abreast of important homeopathic matters and to build collegial relationships. Our recent seminar on Predictive Homeopathy was a great success (read Dr. Dick Moskowitz's review), and we have responded to our members' requests for more training by setting up a year-long training program in Predictive Homeopathy (futher details coming soon). You can also read and contribute to our American Journal of Homeopathic Medicine. See About AIH for further information about our association, and Membership for further information about the benefits of membership.
To our Allopathic Colleagues
Explore the paradox of a world of cutting-edge science supporting a 200-year-old system of medicine.
What we often hear from our allopathic colleagues is that homeopathic medicines cannot work because the medicines are too dilute and that there is no research to support homeopathy. We invite you to read the AIH Guide to Homeopathic Research for an introduction to contemporary research in support of homeopathic medicine. For a general overview of homeopathic philosophy, read Homeopathic Medicine. For a more detailed account of why a trained, licensed physician might choose to practice homeopathic medicine, read For homeopathy: A practicing physician's perspective.
