An Introduction to Signs & Symptoms in Pediatric Casetaking
Dive Deeper into Signs & Symptoms in Pediatric Casetaking
Bonus Session #2
8:00 - 9:00 am Pacific time
Saturday, February 28 Bonus Session #2 - Register Now
Pediatric casetaking presents a unique set of challenges for the homeopathic practitioner. Babies, of course, are unable to communicate verbally; toddlers and older children are, for the most part, no more capable than infants to offer their symptoms in easily understandable language. Must we rely exclusively on the parents’ interpretation of the child’s experience?
In this session, we’ll discuss practical ways to connect with the child (not the parent’s story) as our patient. What can we look for in taking the case of a child? What are the reliable non-verbal clues that point to certain remedy states? How can we learn to flow with the child, challenge and play with her in a way that will elicit significant homeopathic expression and meaning?
The practical approach demonstrated in this session will help you refine your observations during casetaking, leading to a deeper understanding of your younger patient’s expressions, and ultimately to a reliable, well-chosen remedy.
WHN is extremely honored to announce Dr. Gheorghe Jurj’s first-ever course to a North American audience. Dr. Jurj has practiced homeopathy in Romania for over 30 years, and has been teaching post graduate courses in homeopathy to physicians in Romania, Spain, and South America for many years.
Dr. Jurj holds a PhD in Semiotics, the study of how we use signs and symbols to create and communicate meaning, and he is widely recognized for his fusion of Semiotics and Homeopathy. His teaching helps refine our observations during casetaking, leading to a deeper understanding of patient expressions, and toward an answer to the question, “How can observations during casetaking guide me towards a remedy?”
During this course, we will make a practical exploration into the coherence between the observable signs and symptoms and the Generals and Mentals of the pediatric patient. As we dig deeper into the non verbal signs and symptoms, we will expand our knowledge and understanding of materia medica, moving beyond book studies to the clinical experience.
Dr. Jurj’s method is masterful for its inclusion of characteristics, peculiars, and striking symptoms into the Totality of the Case. Using this approach, the homeopath is better able to leverage the signs of the patient, and extract from them reliable information to be applied for the most accurate prescription.
An Invitation from Gheorghe Jurj
“Don’t expect too much theory from me: I am a clinician, and my main focus is to obtain results with good remedies prescribed according to the need of the patient, in REAL TIME HOMEOPATHY, not according to any speculations.
I have had the chance to face many thousands of patients, with so many problems, and (because I am too lazy to write pages) I recorded thousands of cases, with clear follow-ups. From this experience, I think it is a duty of mine to share with you and the homeopathic community my humble knowledge and a clinical way to approach the wonderful discipline that is homeopathy.”
Topics we will cover in this course
- Specifics of the pediatric consultation: nonverbal signs, genetic influences, dealing with parents, eliciting the specific signs and symptoms. Seeing and understanding peculiarities, significance of the main complaint, trustworthy information.
- Child development, evolution, and homeopathy: milestones of the growth process, understanding children in evolution, how children grow with homeopathy. Adaptation issues (school, moving, etc.).
- Constitutional and acute prescribing: significance of acutes, situational remedies, complementary remedies, decompensation, management of trivial but disturbing conditions.
- Exploring of select ‘children’s’ remedies: face and gaze, behavior, posture, pathologies, constitutions, hands, skin.
- Selected disease conditions & special disorders: dermatitis, autism, retardation, severe genetic or immune disorders, tetra paresis.
This seminar-style course will take place over 3 Saturdays, with each session lasting a full 4 hours. Sessions are scheduled from 8:00 am - 12:00 noon Pacific time, and will be convenient for live attendance by those in both Europe and the Americas (see in your time zone.)
Signs & Symptoms in Pediatric Caretaking will be an interactive course, and live attendance is strongly encouraged. Case videos and video clips will be included during all sessions*, and moderators will field your questions and commentary in real-time. We’re pleased to have Dr. Joe Kellerstein (bio) serve as principal moderator and facilitator for Dr. Jurj.
* Participants must sign a confidentiality agreement upon enrollment.
About Gheorghe Jurj
Dr. Gheorghe Jurj is an MD who has practiced homeopathy in Romania for over 30 years. He has been teaching post graduate courses in homeopathy to physicians in Romania, Spain, and South America for many years, and this course will be his first offering to an English-speaking audience.
Dr. Jurj completed his medical training at Romania’s Medical University of Timisoara in 1984. He spent his early years as a General Practitioner in an isolated mountain community with a population of 5,000, where he provided basic medical services, including a small surgery, work medicine, and counseling. During this time he developed the concept of “Real Time Medicine,” which has now become “Real Time Homeopathy”. Dr. Jurj discovered homeopathy in 1990, whereupon he “felt like a salmon back in its native waters.”
Dr. Jurj holds a PhD in Semiotics, the study of how we use signs and symbols to create and communicate meaning. He has fused Semiotics and Homeopathy in a practical and wonderful way, and his teaching helps refine our observations during casetaking, leading to a deeper understanding of patient expressions.
His publications have been included in major professional journals including Homeopathy, Homeopathic Heritage, Il medico Homeopata, Revista de Homeopatia, Int. Jour. High Dilution Res, Ukrainian Journal of Homeopathy, and more.

Praise for Dr. Jurj
When you first enter the world of Gheorghe’s practice, nothing you ever learned will prepare you for this experience. You will be challenged at every turn. Gheorghe doesn’t “lecture,” but he “puts problems,” as he likes to say. And the problems he puts are those all of us meet in real-life, everyday clinical practice. Gheorghe’s ultimate aim is not to teach you “a method,” much less a sophisticated and complex theoretical system—even though he has a doctorate in philosophy, his dissertation is precisely on the deep semiotic aspects of homeopathic symptoms.
Gheorghe will ask you “what do you see?”
In his courses, indeed, you will learn how to see in a homeopathically relevant way. Then you’ll realize that up to then you behaved as a blind pilot, steering your aircraft exclusively based on oral instructions received through a highly noisy and distorted channel.
At the same time, Gheorghe will focus on how to think in a practical, clinical way. You will learn how to integrate all possible sources of information—what the patient says, their attitude and behavior, and the incredible uniqueness of the physical manifestations of the countless homeopathic remedies.

— Silvia Waisse MD, PhD, BC Homeopathy
Dr. Gheorghe Jurj is a remarkable Doctor, Homeopath and Teacher with an enormous amount of clinical knowledge to impart to our community. As a person, he is as warm, wise, and knowledgeable as his smile is wide and genuine... Gheorghe’s teaching opens our eyes like never before. For decades he has been asking the question “how can what I Observe guide me towards a remedy.”
There is so much to enjoy learning from this excellent teacher.... He takes this art and science of non-verbal signs in Homeopathy to an unheard of level... Studying with this man and this video evidence is a great clinical education. read Dr. Kellerstein’s full testimonial here
— Joe Kellerstein, DC, ND, FCAH, CCH
Dr. Jurj has strenuously developed the art of patient observation, through a careful deciphering of signs, symptoms, and their meaning. His courses have complex visual components (both photo and video) which are drawn from his own practice, and are clearly, accessibly and rigorously objectified. His interpretation of symptoms, case evolution and the results he achieved are solid testimonies for his work methods and ethics. More than 30 years of clinical, academic and international education experience set the highest standard for these courses, making them a must in the portfolio of any homeopathy practitioner, regardless of their level of experience.
— Calin Andron, MD, Professor ARHC (after 20 years of collaboration with Dr. Jurj)
Since 2004, Dr. Gheorghe Jurj has conducted over 30 seminars in Ukraine focusing on the homeopathic treatment of different pathologies in children and adults. His seminars are always held at the highest scientific level and are very informative. Upon showcasing the different cases he has worked on, most include video demonstrations that highlight the engaging nature of his method. Dr. Jurj's courses are attended by over 100 doctors, many traveling from Russia, Belarus and Lithuania to learn from his approach.
— Dergachova Zoya MD, PhD, Executive Director, Association Homeopathic of Ukraine, NVP LMHI Ukraine
I have attended Dr. Jurj's Homeopathy courses with great interest over the last 15 years and warmly recommend them. Dr. Jurj's courses provide pragmatic benchmarks for an effective homeopathic case management. His methods bring to the forefront the significance of medical semiotics, particularly the individual visual signs, and reconsider the role of objective signs within a homeopathic practice.
— Liliana Petruse, MD, Internal Medicine Resident, Switzerland
I had started with the classical study of Homeopathy 12 year prior to meeting Dr. Jurj. Of all the studied methods, Dr. Jurj's was the most impactful... It was stunning to see him with children - their play, their dialogue appropriate for the child's level was followed by a precise theory. What then would follow was a translation with the accuracy of a clinical blade.
I've learned to see the patient as a person, to understand signs, and to quickly interpret the ensemble holistically. Everything was to fit, to become coherent, to flow. At the end there was no other conclusion to be reached and no other remedy to be prescribed... I learned to prescribe correctly because I have learned to focus on signs, and figured that words would only take you so far and were a small part of the significant whole. I've continued to be informed about and read other works, however as a practitioner I remain what I became after the few months spent with Dr.Jurj - a ~jurjist~.
— Dan Militaru, MD, GP, Nantes, France
The teaching method of Dr. Jurj is based in the coherence between signs and symptoms that are accessible to our senses together with the Generals and Mentals of the Patient. It is a Mastery method for considering and including the characteristics, peculiars, striking symptoms into the Totality of the case. We also learn about Physiology and Pathology in a way that helps us to use it in the context of the Homeopathic approach.
Dr. Jurj has developed the ability to create in the audience the eagerness for researching deeper the non-verbal signs and symptoms of the patient. It is a real training for expanding our knowledge and understanding of Materia Medica from the clinical experience rather than just book studies. It is a non-stopping exercise to develop the potential for taking the facts of the signs of the patient and getting from them reliable information to be applied for the most accurate prescription.
