L.C.E.H, M.D.(HOM), F.S.(HOM) (UK)

Dr. Rajan Sankaran, MD (Hom), FSHom (UK) is an internationally renowned thinker, teacher and writer of the homoeopathic system of medicine. He is reputed to be a clear and original thinker and is best known for his path breaking concepts in homoeopathy. His understanding of disease as a delusion followed by his discovery of newer miasms, classification of diseased states into kingdoms (viz. plant, mineral and animal) and the seven levels of experience, brought in much more clarity into understanding diseased states. This paved way to one of the most path-breaking concept of eliciting the vital sensation in the patient, the common thread of experience which runs through the patient at all levels. This method, popular as ‘Sensation method’, was yet not the end of the untiring efforts to simplify the system of homoeopathic practice. The Sensation method has now evolved into a more comprehensive and synergistic approach, which strongly advocates to encompass and integrate the old, classical and traditional approaches with the latest advances. This approach –‘The Synergy of Homoeopathy’, has resulted in a far greater predictability of results than ever before.

Dr. Sankaran’s lucid style and simplicity also makes him very popular as a teacher amongst homoeopaths worldwide. His seminars and teaching courses have been widely attended in India and abroad. He has lectured in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, England, France, Germany, Holland, Israel, Italy, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Spain, South Africa ,Switzerland and U.S.A. Along with his colleagues he founded The Homoeopathic Research and Charities, which is an Institution involved in various teaching courses. He has been awarded a Fellowship of the Society of Homeopaths (U.K.).

Dr. Rajan Sankaran is successfully conducted an online learning programme ‘Wednesdays With Rajan’ (WWR). Watched over 43 countries, with over 700 participants, WWR was one of the most successful online programmes in the present time. A sequel of WWR, WWR-II is also launched.

Dr. Rajan Sankaran lives and practices in Juhu area of Mumbai, India.

Dr. Rajan Sankaran is the owner of Homoeopathic Medical Publishers (HMP) which primarily publishes his books, as well as colleagues like Anne Schadde, Roger Morrison, Jayesh Shah, Jan Scholten.
