Welcome from the President of the Organizing Committee LMHI 2024

President of the Congress

It is a tremendous pleasure for me to welcome each of the attendees from the 76 countries around the world to this 77th World Congress of Homeopathy of the LMHI. This extraordinary event, organized under the auspices of the Liga Medicorum Homoeopathica Internationalis (LMHI), will take place in the captivating country of Spain, with the historic city of Seville as our gracious host, under the theme “United to Continue Advancing.”

The commemoration of the 100 years since the proposal to establish an international association to defend, disseminate, and globally support Homeopathy at the International Congress of Homeopathy, held in Barcelona, Spain, in 1924, which resulted in the formation of the Liga Medica Homeopathica Internationalis (LMHI) during the congress the following year in Rotterdam, with 14 representatives from 9 member countries, is reason enough to celebrate this anniversary with the organization of this congress in our country.

The National Assembly of Homeopathy, ANH, comprised of the Spanish Society of Homeopathic Medicine (SEMH), the Spanish Federation of Homeopathic Physicians (FEMH), the Spanish Association of Homeopathic Pharmacists (AEFHOM), and the Spanish Society of Veterinary Homeopathy (SEHV), is the organizer of this international meeting, to which all organizations and individuals associated with the LMHI are invited, as well as any entity or collective from the professional, scientific, university field, in addition to users and patients interested in the knowledge, development, and dissemination of Homeopathy, a therapy founded on the scientific method by its founder, Dr. Samuel Hahnemann.

Seville (Spain), the city where Dr. Prudencio Querol Cabanes, a pioneer of Homeopathy in Spain, was born, lived, and died, which he introduced in 1832 in the city of Badajoz (Extremadura), has been chosen as the venue to celebrate this significant anniversary.

Dr. Querol, during his stay in the city of Badajoz, developed his professional activity at the San Sebastián hospital where he held the position of surgeon until 1838 when he returned to Seville, having stood out for the successes obtained with his homeopathic medicines in the treatment of chronic patients and, above all, in the treatment of those affected by the cholera epidemic that devastated the region between 1832-1834.

Thus, in recognition of the work of this illustrious Sevillian, Dr. Prudencio Querol Cabanes, Seville has been chosen as the venue for this important International Medical Congress that we proudly organize with the vocation of serving as a global showcase where all the benefits that the use of Homeopathy in the different fields of health, both for humans and for animals and plants, will be shown.

In this sense, it is worth highlighting the ONE HEALTH approach– defined by the CDC in 1947 by James H. Steele, a veterinarian specialized in public health. This concept refers to the interdisciplinary approach to minimize harm and maximize the benefits of joint management of people’s health. animals and the environment, requiring the intervention of multidisciplinary teams to design effective measures.

Thus, it is recognized that the health of humans, domestic and wild animals, plants, and the general environment (including ecosystems) are closely linked and interdependent. “One health” summarizes a concept we have known for over a century: animal health, human health, and plant health are interdependent and linked to the ecosystems in which they live.

And here Homeopathy can play a crucial role in the global improvement of the planet by contributing to solving health problems such as resistance to antibiotics both in human and animal health (by being able to improve the immune system, favoring antibiotic action and avoiding the need for repeated pharmacological treatments) or the worrying increase in the level of soil and water pollution due to the abuse of fertilizers and pesticides.

This Congress also aspires to show the great work of so many colleagues, around the world, in the integration of Homeopathy in the different health systems, as the WHO has been advising in its strategy 2014-2023.

Under the motto “United to continue advancing”, this congress, which we have organized with so much enthusiasm and enthusiasm, presents as a novelty the participation in it of patient associations, which will have a space to carry out their own activities and initiatives in support of Homeopathy. We are convinced that bringing and integrating these patient associations into the LMHI’s organizational chart will be of great value in the development and expansion of Homeopathy at the service of all Humanity.

A second novelty is to offer, simultaneously to the congress, an International Homeopathy Exhibition for all those who wish to approach it, as a way of dissemination and social awareness towards this therapy.

As a third novelty, in the commercial exhibition we will have a stand of Authorsof works related to Homeopathy, with the aim of personally introducing the author and his work so that we can all enjoy this extraordinary experience. As you can see, the congress program will include debate tables, presentations, communications, posters, and workshops, as well as keynote lectures in the opening and closing sessions.

I hope, along with the entire organizing team, that the scientific program will fulfill the hopes and expectations of all attendees. Likewise, we are confident that the beautiful city of Seville will be the ideal setting to enjoy all the social events and, above all, its history, folklore, and gastronomy, as well as the character and warmth of its people.

With the greatest wish for success for all, receive a warm and fraternal embrace: “United to Keep Advancing”
