Brief About Editor: Grant Bentley is from Melbourne, Australia and has been working and studying in various fields of natural therapies since 1987. Grant is a qualified Homeopath and Naturopath and has studied Clinical Hypnosis and has a Post Graduate Diploma in Eriksonian Psychotherapy. Grant is the current principal and senior lecturer of the Victorian College of Classical Homeopathy (1995 – ).
The Victorian College of Classical Homeopathy led by Principal Grant Bentley has been clinically trialling the relationship between facial structure and successful chronic prescribing using homeopathy since 2000. Graduating practitioners use facial analysis with every chronic case. Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA) produces consistently successful results using Hahnemannian concepts of homeopathy.
Trials have been conducted in the private clinics of Grant Bentley and a number of Melbourne based VCCH graduates. Trials have also been undertaken at community clinics located at both Remedy Group (Lilydale, Rowville) and the Orwil St Community House (Frankston). Consistent results of 80%+ across numerous chronic diseases including depression, anxiety, asthma, arthritis, migraines, IBS, psoriasis, allergies, eating disorders, weakened immune systems and other illnesses have occurred. The clinics have been used to determine a link between facial structure and miasmatic classification of polychrests. From this research, Grant Bentley devised a method known as Homeopathic Facial Analysis (HFA) which he has been teaching to undergraduate students in Australia and postgraduate students from more than 25 countries around the world.
Grant Bentley’s first book Appearance and Circumstance (2003) details the nature of miasms (inherited stress and health responses) and how facial analysis can be used to determine a patient’s stress response or miasm using classical homeopathy. Homœopathic Facial Analysis (2006) continues this work with detailed descriptions and examples of facial analysis. These two books have been combined and published for Asia renamed Facial Analysis and Homeopathy (BJain 2011).
Appearance and Circumstance and Homœopathic Facial Analysis have been translated into Russian, German, Spanish and Bulgarian. Soul & Survival has been translated into Russian and German. Grant has lectured in Australia, New Zealand, the Middle East, India, USA, Canada and Europe.
