Programme Registration How to get there Seminar times Accommodations

Mental disorders are on the increase. In Germany, for example, the number of patients admitted to hospital for depression has doubled over the last ten years. This is one area where homeopathy can have astonishing results.
The first congress focusing on the topic of Homeopathy for Mental Disorders will take place in Bad Krozingen from March 23-25, 2012. Some of the world’s foremost experts have been invited to speak: the congress will be opened by probably the most famous homeopathic psychiatrist of all, Mahesh Gandhi. He will be talking about the major topic of schizophrenia and how to treat it homeopathically.
Afterwards, the experienced English homeopath Jonathan Hardy will explore the carbon remedies (2nd series), which have shown themselves to be especially effective in treating mental disorders such as depression, addiction and anxiety.
The second day begins with a talk by the well-known Indian homeopath Divya Chhabra, in which she presents impressive case studies of depression, panic attacks and ADHD. In the afternoon, Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman will speak about cases of Asperger syndrome. On the last day, the popular Italian homeopath Massimo Mangialavori will talk about the topic of anxiety and insecurity. The congress will be closed by the Swiss homeopath Heiner Frei, who will discuss how he uses homeopathy to treat children with ADHD.
A varied congress which will introduce a wide range of new treatment ideas.

The Highlight for 2012!  With participants from countries such as the US, Canada, Great Britain, Ireland, Australia, Egypt, Japan, Norway, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, France, Romania and Slovakia as well as Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

The Congress has already developed its own special dynamic and has become an important rendezvous for the homeopathic movement.  There is still space available.

Narayana’s homeopathic congresses have now become an institution. Between 250 and 300 participants came to the congresses in 2009, 2010 and 2011; the feedback was excellent.
