On the Threshold of a new and exciting year!

The CHC team extends heartfelt thanks to all CCH practitioners who maintained excellence and demonstrated commitment by recertifying their CCH credentials. Last year  was a remarkable year that gave reason to celebrate the sense of togetherness in the CHC community. Let's keep up the good work and forge ahead. We are grateful for your support, inspiration, and generous donations!


In the spirit of togetherness...

CCH certificant published article
Nicole Duelli, CCH, recently published an article,  Scientific Research on Homeopathic Medicine (Updated), on the Health Action Network Society site (hans.org). In the article, Nicole compiles  a sample of positive homeopathic research that she has discovered in her own search for resources. In the article, Nicole says she hopes the references may be valuable as they link directly to other web pages to offer some solidity-or credibility-to the vast amounts of information on the web that is not necessarily based on fact. The article provides great research summaries focused on mental health, childhood illnesses, injuries and surgery, and more. Nicole encourages readers to investigate the full research for themselves at the  Homeopathy Research Institute . Great work, Nicole! Thank you for sharing your findings with the homeopathic community.

Donate to keep the CHC's NCCA stamp of recognition...

The CHC's mission is to advance the homeopathic profession by certifying individuals who meet and maintain a recognized standard of professional and ethical competence in classical homeopathy and to assist the general public in choosing appropriately qualified homeopaths. We envision a healthcare system that includes access to certified classical homeopathic practitioners. 
These tenants guide the CHC's work to move the homeopathic profession forward, and we need your help.  In July 2017, the CHC was accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA), a significant milestone for the North American homeopathic profession. NCCA accreditation provides all of us several benefits:
  • Demonstrated commitment to meeting established professional standards.
  • Enhanced credibility for the CHC certification process, over non-accredited certifying processes, that certifies professional homeopaths via impartial, third-party oversight of a conforming assessment system.
  • Strengthened legitimacy of CHC certificates/credentials for validation and reliability.
  • Documented assurance to the homeopathic community and the general public that CHC certificants have graduated from programs that meet credentialing high standards. 
  • Improved visibility, recognition and value for CHC-certified homeopathic practitioners to clients, policymakers, payers, and the general public. 
To help maintain the CHC's NCCA good standing, please consider donating  HERE . Big things have small beginnings, and together we can make a difference - one step at a time, one practice at a time! Thank you for your continuous support.
