MTC: Miasm, Temperament and Constitution with Dr. Robert Abell

This course is designed to introduce the modern practitioner to the theory of Miasm, Temperament and Constitution (MTC).  MTC is the brainchild of Dr. Gerard Geuniot, M.D. along with his group of physicians Dr. Franck Ledoux, Dr. Bruno Chacornac, Dr. Pierre Tondelier and Dr. Patrick Depoers.  MTC is based on the homeopathic theory of Dr. Samuel Hahnemann the inventor of homeopathic medicine.  This 8-week course will allow the doctor to see their patients in a new light by classify a patient according to their miasm, temperament and eventually their homeopathic constitution.  The advantage of MTC is the integration of terrain and homeopathic theory to allow a more intelligent prescription for our patients no matter what symptomatic picture they present.  We treat people, NOT diseases, and MTC allows one to accurately and effectively develop an advanced treatment protocol no matter what the patient presents.  MTC is a new way of thinking about how we treat our modern complicated cases with knowledge and incredible success.
