LMHI accepted as a Non-Profit Organization
In March 2013, the LMHI moved its statutory seat from Geneva, Switzerland, to the original house of Dr Samuel Hahnemann in Koethen (Anhalt), Germany. One of the reasons for this decisive step was the intention to achieve the status of a non-profit organization for the LMHI. In August 2013, the German tax offices granted the LMHI this status of a non-profit organization. From now on, the LMHI has the possibility to receive donations and issue receipts.
Back to the roots of homeopathy: LMHI moves seat to Hahnemann City of Köthen
The LMHI has moved its statutory seat from Geneva, Switzerland, to the original house of Dr Samuel Hahnemann in Koethen (Anhalt), Germany.

From 1821 to 1835, Hahnemann, the founder of homeopathy, lived and praticed in "Wallstraße 47" and it is here where he wrote his work "Chronic Diseases" in 1828. His former residence has been extensively restored by the Hahnemannhouse-Society.
Homeopathic Medicine/Remedy Definition
According to several EU directives concerning the registration procedure of homeopathic medicinal products for human and veterinary use, the homeopathic remedy definition must take into consideration two elements: the homeopathic use and the homeopathic nature of the stock/raw material. In the LMHI-ECH document about “Medical Homeopathic Education Standards”, “Homeopathy” is defined as: “a method of medical practice, aimed at improving the level of health of an organism by the administration of proven and sucussed/triturated medicines, which are individually selected in accordance with the law of similars.” In order to arrive to a more complete definition for the homeopathic medicine/remedy, three aspects must be considered.
