THE AMERICAN HOMEOPATH JOURNAL
NASH is proud to continue the longstanding tradition of publishing The American Homeopath, the journal of the North American Society of Homeopaths. Created in 1994, this annual journal is a scholarly collection of articles, interviews, case studies, materia medica studies and more.
The first issue of the AMERICAN HOMEOPATH was in 1994 with Constantine Hering on cover. NASH was only 4 years old, and the journal very quickly became a highly recognized journal nationally and internationally.
NASH member Greg Bedayn wanted to create a resource offering in-depth interviews, provings, and cured cases. In initiating the journal, he chose the name, The American Homeopath. Another journal carried the same name but spelled in the more typically European style: The American Homoeopath which had begun publishing in 1879 by Frank Kraft and Underhill during the height of the Golden Age of Homeopathy (1870-1890). They adopted the motto: Hew to the line, let the chips fall where they may. During that time there were over 35 colleges of homeopathy and 140 journals!
A review of the second issue of The American Homeopath by Dr. Roger Morrison said, ” With this second volume of The American Homeopath, the journal has sprung into life as one of the most important journals, if not the most important journal in the field of classical homeopathy. It is rare to find a journal where every article is worth reading. I encourage all serious students and practitioners of homeopathy to avail themselves of this vital resource.”
Bedayn, renowned as a blacksmith, airplane pilot, master chef, woodworker, and inventor, studied at the Hahnemann College, and is known for his proving of Raven’s Blood. He passed away in 2008. As Founding Editor of AH, he even, in his death, bequeathed funds to the NASH Foundation for continuing education in homeopathy.
The Editor of The American Homeopath journal is starting to work on the 2023 issue. The next issue will be Volume 29 and the theme is “Sea Remedies- Miracles of the Sea”. The publication date will be the Summer of 2023.

The American Homeopath journal will strive to publish and disseminate homeopathic information that remains true to the tenets of classical homeopathy as envisioned by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann in the 6th edition of the Organon. Our purpose is to promote the practice and profession of Hahnemannian homeopathy and support all professional homeopaths, regardless of the medical background or other discipline from which they come, in their efforts to inform and educate themselves so that they may provide high quality homeopathic care to those who seek them out. Our guiding philosophy includes a dedication to publishing original work that maintains the integrity, honesty, humility, and spirit we have come to expect of those who truly practice a Hahnemannian form of homeopathy with the purpose of bringing the sick to health.
The North American Society of Homeopaths has published its highly esteemed journal, The American Homeopath, for over 20 years. This journal is an annual, scholarly publication covering the latest trends in homeopathy – new provings, materia medica, cases and much more.
NASH has very few of the earlier editions and as of February 2019 only 18 complete sets of journals are available. The Board of Directors recognizes that what is left of the sets has educational value for homeopaths around the world, and, as such, is seeking to place complete journal sets in settings where they may be accessed by as many homeopaths and students of homeopathy as possible.
These sets are available at no charge to any library that offers holistic, alternative, integrative or alternative medicine programs AND where there is a focus on homeopathy. The Journal Project has already placed journals in the following locations:
- Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, Tempe, AZ, USA (May 3, 2017)
- Neiswander Library, King of Prussia, PA, USA (May 10, 2015)
- Helios Homeopathy, Ltd., Tunbridge Wells, UK (February 10, 2015)
- REMEDIA Homöopathie – Eisenstadt, Austria (December 2, 2014)
- UCSF Library, San Francisco, CA, USA (September 23, 2014)
- Homeopathic Library, Jhansi, India (January 30, 2019)
If your organization is interested in a complete journal set:
- contact NASH at na******@ho********.org using the subject “NASH Journal Project;”
- state why your program would benefit from the donation of these journals;
- state the location where the journals would be domiciled;
- indicate who will benefit by your having them in your library;
- tell us how many people would benefit from having access to the journals;
- and tell us the anticipated duration of the project or location.
The organization needs to be willing and able to pay the costs for shipping and handling of the journals. A paid subscription to the journal (available on our website, www.homeopathy.org) will keep your set up to date with the upcoming published volumes.
