Join us February 20th for a panel discussion with the world's top researchers working on homeopathic data collection, for a variety of ailments including the current pandemic.
Learn what has been achieved so far, what have been the most prescribed remedies for the current situation and why it is so important for each and everyone of us to join in this extraordinary work - by the end of this panel you'll be ready to get started and be a part of this historic work!
Participating in data collection gives you a better understanding of how your patients are responding to treatment and how your practice is faring overall. You will gain indispensable insights that will help you uncover patterns and maximize your successful prescriptions. More importantly the data you provide to researchers will raise awareness of homeopathy, supporting continued access to this valuable medicine. Learn and be a part of Covid data collection.

Proceeds support homeopathic Research Projects
An International Homeopathic Data Bank able to store millions of clinical cases collected in different languages, sent by homeopaths working with different methodologies. The Clificol® COVID-19 Support Project is an innovative international data collection project, carefully designed by a group of experts in homeopathy and research, to tackle some of the core questions in homeopathy. Collecting real-life data about patient prescriptions and clinical outcomes during the Covid pandemic will allow us to test some of the core principles of homeopathy from a rigorous scientific perspective, using state of the art statistical techniques.
Dr. Alex Tournier studied Physics at Imperial College, and Theoretical Physics at Cambridge University, before writing his PhD on the Biophysics of water at the interface with biological molecules at the University of Heidelberg, Germany. Dr Tournier worked for 10 years at Cancer Research UK as a researcher working on problems at the interface between biology, physics and mathematics. Dr Alexander Tournier is a founding director of the Homeopathy Research Institute. He recently headed the Water Research Lab in Germany, which was dedicated to fundamental research into homeopathy. He is currently a research associate at the Institute for research into complementary medicines (IKIM) at Bern university, where he pursues basic and fundamental research into homeopathy.

Health Hawk helps all types of health practitioners and health providers collect and channel real-time health data from their patients/ clients/ users, and then use this information to improve the health services that they provide. Health Hawk focuses on the patient's voice and perspective.
Clare is a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Trials at the Institute of Population Health Sciences at Queen Mary University of London and an honorary Senior Research Fellow in Public Health at Sheffield University in the UK.
Clare practiced homeopathic medicine for 15 years, including 8 years working at an NHS Menopause Clinic in Sheffield. This required Clare and her colleague Dr Strong to collect information from their patients at every appointment using the outcome measure MYMOP2. The information the patients gave enabled their service to be evaluated, supported further research into the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment and opened Clare’s eyes to the importance of the patient voice in evaluation.
In 2003 Clare was awarded a Department of Health Training Fellowship. She completed an MSc in Health Services Research, a PhD in practical trial design (Trials within Cohorts ‘TwiCs’) and began designing trials of treatment by a homeopath and supervising PhDs testing ‘treatment by a homeopath’ (Viksveen, Fibert).
Clare continues to help design trials and lead studies in public health and public health nutrition (Yorkshire Health Study, NOSH, Fresh Street).
Clare is keen to create a level playing field in research, where all types of healthcare are tested using efficient patient centred trial designs embedded within routine care.
After studying English and Education at Cambridge University, Philippa worked as a special needs teacher and early years family adviser. Whilst her own four girls were young, she trained as a homeopath and was startled by the effectiveness of homeopathic treatment for some of her former pupils. So she amalgamated her two professions specialising in the homeopathic treatment of children with neurodevelopmental and behavioural disorders.
Trying to understand the evidence issues surrounding homeopathy, she completed a BSc in Homeopathy; an MSc in Research Methodology in Psychology; and a PhD in public health. During these she conducting a consecutive comparative case series of children with ADHD; and a pilot pragmatic RCT comparing the effectiveness of treatment by homeopaths and nutritional therapists for ADHD with treatment as usual.
Philippa is dedicated to providing good quality, real life research evidence with the aim of improving health outcomes, working with therapists, academics and trialists to this end. She is part of the Health Hawk collaboration to build Healthy Health systems, and has initiated the Pod Project as part of this.
She runs a private homeopathic practice from her home near High Wycombe. When not researching or practicing homeopathy, Philippa is to be found digging in the garden or riding her horse.
In response to the crisis, The American Institute of Homeopathy quickly mobilized the AIH COVID-19 Data Collection Project to collect case reports and remedy information from across the globe. Data collection has been achieved by AIH using a custom built, automated data collection tool. One hundred and sixty-eight homeopaths from the U.S., Canada, Europe, South and Central America, and South Asia are contributing to the effort. Results of the AIH effort are shared with colleagues around the world no less than weekly.
