Who We Are
The American Institute of Homeopathy, the oldest extant national physicians' organization in the US, has promoted homeopathic medicine as a medical specialty since 1844. Our members are licensed physicians (medical, osteopathic, and naturopathic), dentists, veterinarians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacologists and pharmacists and all of us are trained in homeopathic medicine as well as the medical/dental training required for our respective license. As licensed homeopaths, we are aware of the benefits and limits of both conventional and homeopathic medicine. When possible, we choose to promote the healing of our patients with homeopathic medicines because they are gentle yet highly efficacious. Whether you are a patient, a homeopathic colleague, a conventional (allopathic) healthcare provider, or simply a curious person, we welcome you to explore our website. If you have any questions, please contact us at
To your health and well-being,
Ronald D. Whitmont, MD
President, American Institute of Homeopathy

To our Allopathic Colleagues
Explore the paradox of a world of cutting-edge science supporting a 200-year-old system of medicine.
What we often hear from our allopathic colleagues is that homeopathic medicines cannot work because the medicines are too dilute and that there is no research to support homeopathy. We invite you to read the AIH Guide to Homeopathic Research for an introduction to contemporary research in support of homeopathic medicine. For a general overview of homeopathic philosophy, read Homeopathic Medicine. For a more detailed account of why a trained, licensed physician might choose to practice homeopathic medicine, read For homeopathy: A practicing physician's perspective.
