Unit Fifteen : Provings

Aims 
This unit aims to take a more in-depth look at what is involved in proving a remedy, studying the history of provings from Hahnemann’s first discovery as well as the different types of proving currently undertaken in today’s society. It will also cover what to do with the information that is generated by a proving, and how remedy symptoms are recorded in the homeopathic repertory. In addition you will be shown how to read a proving with the aim of remedy identification and selection and you will look at an example case of a proven remedy. Lastly you have the opportunity to consolidate your learning through another case analysis.
