Student Testimonials

“I studied with Iris Ratowsky for 4 years, initially completing the three year certificate program with Berkeley Institute of Homeopathy and then a one year round table supervision program for graduates. Iris strikes a fine balance between rigorous and detailed academic study and exploring/developing the more elusive qualities of being a healer. By the time I graduated I had a solid foundation of materia medica knowledge, an advanced understanding of homeopathic theory and philosophy, a carefully honed set of analytical tools for analyzing a case, and a clear path for helping my clients. I appreciated the most, Iris’ dedication to our wholeness as people, students and practitioners. Everything she did was focused on building us up, be it with knowledge, confidence, or good food. Iris wants every one of her students to be successful and sustainable on all levels. Health is not just for your clients, it’s for you too. Studying with Iris and BIH was an enriching experience. I highly recommend it. Oh, and I passed the dreaded CHC exam on first writing.”

“I have so much appreciation for the intelligence, depth of understanding, and decades of experience that Iris brings to her teaching. She cares deeply about homeopathy, and radiates such warmth and integrity. I recommend her school wholeheartedly.”

“Some are good homeopaths, some are good teachers… Iris is both! She can
easily relate to the beginner’s mind as well as the advanced student’s. Her
thinking is critical and organized. I thank her everyday in my practice, for
the case analysis skills she taught us.

“She has a unique, animated and humorous way of teaching remedies, her classes
are always a lot of fun! Her lively demonstrations make the information hard
to forget.

“In her classes, she brings in the intellect, intuition, hard work and
relaxation all together. I am most appreciative of her emphasis on the
homeopath’s self awareness and healing.”

“Iris brings many years of experience and teaching practice into her classroom. She easily tailors learning to the different interests and perspectives of different students. Class participation and discussion are encouraged, in addition to traditional lectures. You learn tools to work with clients, and case management techniques. I got a solid foundation that covered many practical remedies and topics required for a successful practice. What makes this school unique is the emphasis on developing yourself as a practitioner. This is the place to go to develop your love of homeopathy!”
