Jerry has had many teachers over the years but values above all else knowledge gained from extensive case taking. Within homeopathy his most treasured resources include the work of Frans Vermeulen, Jan Scholten, Rajan Sankaran and Michal Yakir. His core knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medical theory and affinity for philosophical analysis enabled his formulating a useful diagnostic system, Cyclical Remedy Analysis put forth in his book, Interpreting Chronic Illness. An elaboration on this work has produced a cogent explanation for the origination of the five classical miasms.
