Homeopathy in Iran
Dr Ardavan Shahrdar is one of the most famous homeopaths of Iran.
He has been active in training more than 700 physicians in homeopathy courses in Tehran and always has tried to improve the quality of homeopathic education according to true principles of homeopathy.
He has played a central role in setting the standards and syllabus for teaching of homoeopathy and also the standards for import and distribution of homeopathic remedies for the Ministry of Health and Medical Education of Iran.
After the formation of Iranian Homeopathic Association (IHA), he was elected as the President of IHA. He had a great role in international recognition of IHA with his cooperation with ECCH and LMHI.
He is the founder of international Minutus e-group now with more than 2000 members from all over the world. He is also the director of British Institute of Homeopathy in the Gulf region and teaches homeopathy in Tehran university and in his Advanced Homeopathy Courses classes.
At the time being he is conducting an interesting research on the nature of chronic miasms according to the principles of Hahnemannian homeopathy based on the recent findings about infectious states. The current findings have greatly increased the success rate in treatment of chronic diseases.
Ardavan believes that the homeopathy which is often generally practised, has lost its scientific and experimental nature through the past century and is usually based on personal theoretical speculations – the main reason for its relative stagnation.
The way this precious science can be saved from its deviations is to begin studying carefully the old writings of Samuel Hahnemann, the great scientist and founder of homeopathy as well as other pioneers of this healing science and then improve it by systematic researches; the way it was itself born.
Ardavan’s knowledge of philosophy, psychology and music have helped him a great deal in acquiring his systematic way of thinking and the statement of his thoughts. He believes that we can go beyond the dualism of holistic views and reductionism and without gaining this freedom, the mysterious conflict never fades away.
Here in Minutus, he offers information about principles of Hahnemannian homeopathy, Materia Medica and important related issues.
