We introduce a commonly used remedy for you to start using straight away, prior to undertaking your main study.

Part 4 Animal case receiving and prescribing guidelines
This gives you guidelines on receiving the case, assessing symptoms and finding the most appropriate remedy (prescribing).

Part 5 Animal case examples
To help you learn more about homeopathy and casework, we have included 21 sample cases. The first two are fully worked through; the remaining 19 are self-assessment questions, so you can have a go yourself and check your understanding with our answer at the course ‘Answers’ section.

This section holds all the answers to the self-assessment questions and cases and should not be looked at until you have attempted the questions yourself first.

Once you have worked through the course, having completed all the self-assessment questions, watched the memory stick files and read the books, you will be ready to tackle the assignments. These are optional.
