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.
