Concordant Reference 2nd ed- Vermeulen

Concordant Reference 2nd ed- Vermeulen

CA$135.00

The world's best single-volume materia medica has been completely revised and updated - for instance, Vermeulen's Concordant Reference now includes ALL of Boericke's remedies precisely indexed and easy to find.

Those who are already familiar with Vermeulen's original Concordant Materia Medica will find the familiar layout of sections, symptom divisions and categories in this new Concordant Reference.

Professional homeopathic practice without the Concordant Reference is inconceivable.

 

Concordant Reference, published November 2011

   - 1209 remedies in one book!
    - An additional 362 remedies from the classical materia medicas
    - Expanded Sensation, Mind and Dream sections
    - Family Information on Plants, Animals, Fungi, Bacteria and Viruses
    - Chemical Formulas for Mineral and Organic Compounds
    - Standardized Nomenclature with latin names, common names and family groupings
    - Corrected source material information from the author's research
    - Remedies described separately that had been combined in the classical literature
    - More proving symptoms to complement the clinical focus of the previous versions
    - Organized in Boericke's scheme but including material from ten classical authors

Do you, like so many homeopaths, spend your days in and out of Frans Vermeulen's books? If so, then you know that Vermeulen's materia medicas are the most comprehensive single-volume references available. The original Concordant met with instant success on its publication 17 years ago. Now, for the first time in 14 years, this information has been completely revised, expanded and updated.

Concordant Reference represents an extensive sifting and culling of the classical homeopathic materia medica. Remedy source information has been corrected from the original texts. Previously combined remedies, like Rhus toxicodendron and Rhus radicans, have been distinguished and listed separately. More proving symptoms have been included from T.F. Allen's Encyclopedia to complement the mostly clinical information from Hering.

Our lesser known remedies benefit most from Vermeulen's work on Concordant Reference. In particular, dozens of substances previously hidden in the "relationship" sections of Boericke's Pocket Manual have been either indexed or separated into their own listings. Experience shows that small or previously unknown remedies can yield brilliant results. Modern homeopaths will have the opportunity to examine these additional remedies and broaden their use.

Besides the expanded and verified content, the new Concordant Reference reflects recent changes in homeopathic techniques and scientific knowledge. By improving the accuracy of the original material and adding scientific classification, Concordant Reference uses the classical materia medica to build a solid foundation for the modern practice of homeopathy.

The phrase, "classical materia medica," refers to the work done from 1790 - 1931, starting with Hahnemann and ending with Boericke and Boger. Concordant Reference is a one-volume compilation of the following classical materia medicas:

    1) T.F. Allen - Encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica, 10 volumes (1874 - 1879)
    2) T.F. Allen - A Primer of Materia Medica (1892)
    3) Boericke - Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica (1927)
    4) Boger - Synoptic Key of the Materia Medica (1931)
    5) Clarke - Dictionary of Homeopathic Materia Medica, 3 volumes (1900)
    6) Cowperthwaite - Textbook of Materia Medica and Therapeutics (1891)
    7) Hering - Guiding Symptoms, 10 volumes (1877 - 1887)
    8) Kent - Repertory (1877)
    9) A. Lippe - Textbook of Materia Medica (1865)
  10) Pulford - Homeopathic Materia Medica of Graphic Drug Pictures (approx. 1930)

Those who are already familiar with Concordant Materia Medica will find the familiar layout of sections, symptom divisions and categories in Concordant Reference. Each remedy's materia medica is broken down into Generals, Mind, Dreams, Body sections, Modalities, Relations and Causation. The author has broken out sections on Food and Drink, Heart, Limbs in General, Upper Limbs and Lower Limbs for easier reference. Also, each section of the body is further divided into Sensations, Pain and Objective.

Vermeulen has enlarged the Sensation, Mind and Dream sections, reflecting the recent developments in case taking, case analysis and prescribing that have shown to be so effective for today’s homeopath.

Synthesis - Repertorium Homeopathicum Syntheticum (Edition 9.1) - ed Frederik Schroyens, 2004

CA$300.00

Excerpt from Foreword by Jeremy Sherr: Last year I had the privilege of visiting Dr. Frederik Schroyens in his offices in Ghent, Belgium. It was a hive of activity. A constant stream of information poured in - additions, corrections, provings, translations, revisited classics and new manuscripts. Frederik explained the pyramid structure of the organization, how homeopaths from all over the world gathered information, later passing it on to smaller teams who checked and rechecked it until it arrived at the Ghent office where the final sifting, confirming, corroborating, editing, and publishing were performed. I was very impressed. From my own experience of repertorizing, I have learnt to appreciate the enormous time and work that goes into each rubric, remedy, cross reference and annotation. It is the work of ants and a labor of love.

But i was not only the industriousness that impressed me. It was the dedication to detail and accuracy that filled me with a renewed confidence in the repertory. The repertory is our daily tool; it is our right arm, the gateway to materia medica and to healing. On this tool the health of our patients depends, and we must be able to rely on it in the way a carpenter relies on his plane, a soldier on his sword, a baker on his oven, a writer on her pen. It must be sharp and accurate, all-encompassing but not over-inflated. I found the Synthesis to be all these things, and the tool felt right in my hand.

Wonderful Plants - Scholten

Wonderful Plants - Scholten

CA$200.00

After many years of intensive research, Jan Scholten’s long-awaited book on the taxonomy of plants, Wonderful Plants, is now available in English. Jan Scholten’s previous works on the systematic classification of the elements of the periodic table as homeopathic remedies was the greatest breakthrough of the last ten years in homeopathy. His discoveries have been confirmed in thousands of successful cases. Yet, the main thrust of Jan Scholten’s research is not the Mineral but the Plant kingdom. This can easily be seen in the thoroughness and precision of the information offered in his monumental new work.

The same natural laws that can be seen in the series and stages of the periodic table also underlie the taxonomic system of the enormously varied plant families. The path to the required remedy is not as easy to recognize as with the mineral elements – indeed, it is still evolving! One of the timeless values of this work lies in the essences of the plant families.

See also Sense Provings - a companion book to Wonderful Plants - it presents the results of about 200 provings

„To present us the complete pictures of specific plants, families and orders in such a logic and detailed taxonomic system, fitting the problems of our time, is therefore truly a ‘Work’. A more complete and living Materia Medica of the Plant kingdom has never been created before and it could well be The Book of the future of homeopathy.“


Wondrous Order - Michal Yakir

Wondrous Order - Michal Yakir

CA$215.00

The book "Wondrous Order - The Table of Plants" is currently being translated into English and is expected by the middle of 2015.

Michal Yakir is a homeopathic pioneer who has unlocked the plant kingdom for homeopathy. She has developed her own system for the plant kingdom in the form of a simple tabular set of coordinates with columns and rows, which shows how each column of the plant table can be assigned to different types with varying psychological traits and physical pathologies.

By learning to recognize the special characteristics and themes of the columns, we can acquire a valuable tool to help us identify the required remedy in modern times. Thanks to her straightforward but profound insights based on the ideas of plant evolution, Michal Yakir has made the plant kingdom comprehensible. She adds a new dimension to our existing knowledge of plants, encouraging us to prescribe less well known plants.

Her monumental work contains over 800 different plant remedies, amounting to 95% of the remedies known to homeopathy, including many so far unknown plants. She clearly explains their themes and pathologies in terms of their family and placement in the table. Hundreds of short cases provide graphic sketches of the essences of the individual remedies.

Dr Mahesh Gandhi wrote about Michal Yakir:
"I have had an opportunity to learn from Michal Yakir her novel understanding of plants from development point of view. It makes a lot of sense to me and has changed my outlook towards plants. I am using her ideas in my practise with excellent results. She has made the plant kingdom very understandable by her simple yet deep understanding of them based on the concept of evolution of plants. It is indeed a very fascinating and a practical work.

It gives an additional dimension to our understanding of known plants and also helps us prescribe some yet unknown plants with confidence. It is a very extensive work which can help us prescribe more efficiently in our daily homoeopathic practise. It compliments all that we know about plants from other teachers like Sankaran and Scholten. I would recommend every serious homoeopath to learn it as it will prove to be a useful tool in helping us help our patients."

Nature’s Materia Medica (4th Edition) - 1500 Homeopathic and Herbal Remedies - Robin Murphy, 2015

CA$185.00

Excerpt from Preface:  Nature’s Materia Medica is the third edition of the Homeopathic Remedy Guide which was first published in August of 1995. The third edition of the Nature’s Materia Medica was designed to be a complete rewrite and major upgrade of the Homeopathic Remedy Guide, second edition. My attempt has always been to create a new and easy-to-use materia medica for homeopaths to use in daily practice, while still remaining accessible for use at home and in the classroom.
The changes made to this 3rd edition comprise my attempts to build on that philosophy. Nature’s Materia Medica contains hundreds of new remedies and thousands of new updates and additions.
The Nature’s Materia Medica, third edition was updated to be a more clinical, practical and easy-to-use reference guide to the vast homeopathic materia medica. After editing the second edition, I continued to add more modern terminology, cross references and corrected any errors that were found. The final step was to systematically survey the homeopathic and herbal literature for reliable additions and updates. The highest priority was to find more clinical information relevant to modern homeopathic, naturopathic and herbal practice.
The writings of Allen, Anshutz, Boericke, Burnett, Clarke, Cooper, Hale, Hahnemann, Hering, Julian, Paracelsus, Phatak and Radamacher formed the some of the major resources from which the remedy monographs were compiled, formatted and updated. Each remedy is reviewed as to its pharmacy, folklore, historical uses, keynotes, generals, provings, case histories and toxicological reports.

Excerpt from Introduction: The purpose of this book is to serve s a concise guide to the main keynotes and confirmatory symptoms of each of the most commonly prescribed remedies in clinical practice. I have entitled it “Desktop Guide” because I envision its place sitting handy to the interviewer to refer to during the course of a case-taking. Many, many times in my practice I have reached for just such a book as this and could not find it. I reach for this book every time I wish to confirm a remedy in a case and want to ask the specific symptoms of confirmation. While there are several excellent texts of keynotes, I found none which truly compile all the most important keynotes existing. I hope that this book will fill this void.

Desktop Companion to Physical Pathology - Roger Morrison, 1998

CA$167.00

Excerpt from Introduction: As with my first book, Desktop Guide to Keynotes and Confirmatory Symptoms, I have embarked upon the writing of this text because I wanted it for my own practice. I have tried to create a concise yet thorough differential for each of the main pathologies encountered in homeopathic practice. It is my hope that the present book will serve as a companion to my earlier book.
My main concern throughout the writing of this books has been that its purpose and the information it contains would be misconstrued and misused. Homeopathy is an art and a science which must always aim to cure the patient on the deepest level. In this aim, often it is the deepest inner conflicts and frustrations of our patient which lead us to the correct remedy. The practitioner must always consider the whole person. In fact, many cases the constitutional remedy cures a pathology for which it is not listed in our materia medica. Since this is so, what is the purpose of writing a therapeutic text which by its name emphasizes the physical symptoms and keynotes?
I wish therefore, to be clear about my intentions in putting forth this material. The purpose of this book is threefold: It is meant first as an aid to be used at the time of patient interview (either by phone or in person) to cue the practitioner toward likely remedies for a particular condition. The second purpose is as a study guide, bringing the main points of the remedies into focus. And, finally, to give advice about treatment based on the experience of myself and my colleagues at our center.

Homoeopathy and the Elements - Jan Scholten, 2007

Homoeopathy and the Elements - Jan Scholten, 2007

CA$170.00

The subject of this book is homeopathy and the elements of the periodic system. The remedy pictures of almost all the elements of the periodic system are described.

The periodic system is a table of all existing elements, the atoms, from Hydrogen to Radon, and of the radioactive elements, such as Uranium and Plutonium. The table has rows and columns in which the elements are grouped. A theory is developed about the use of the periodic system in Homeopathy. This theory shows that every row and every column has a specific theme. The seven rows are called series. The first series, the Hydrogen series, has the theme of coming into being. The second series, the Carbon series, has the theme of the development of the ego. The third series, the Silicum series , shows the theme of relationships. The fourth series, the Iron series, covers the theme of work. The fifth series, the Silver series, has the theme of creativity. The sixth series, the Gold series, shows the theme of the king, the leader.

Each series shows a development: the theme of the series is developed in eighteen stages. These stages, the columns, describe a development: starting a theme, rising, coming to a top, then declining again and in the end comes the loss.

In this theory every element can be described by the concepts of the series and the stage the element is in. A total picture is given of the periodic system as a spiral. Every wind of the spiral is a series or row. And every radiant is a stage or column. The spiral pictures the expanding consciousness: from the consciousness of the Ego in the beginning to that of a neighbourhood, a village, a city, a country and in the end the whole universe.

‘When you have seen that a patient who doubts for years what to do with his life, takes clear decisions suddenly after a dose of Scandium, and also executes them (and has got rid of all kind of fears at the same time), you want to have this book at your desk next to the Repertory.’  - Frans Kusse, SSC, Vol 26, Nr2, 1996.

Excerpt from Foreword: Finding the right remedy is the greatest challenge of homeopathic medicine. It seems that I am stating the obvious. But this isn’t altogether true. The greatest challenge is to admit that you haven’t yet found the remedy you are looking for. One of the greatest eye openers ever was the reverse similars law presented to me by Jan Scholten one day: an unknown picture needs an unknown remedy. A brilliant hint and food for thought for all of us who are involved in homeopathy, for the anxious seeker who is looking for that one remedy that will cure his problem patients, as well as for the complacent ruminator who thinks he has seen it all by now.

A pint of discussion that we frequently encounter is whether homeopathy is an art or a science. This discussion all depends on the theoretical question whether heuristics belong to the domain of science, or whether it should be seen as so called ‘pre scientific procedures’. Heuristics is the methodology of searching. In order to find something new you have to try to find out where to look for it and this is in turn related to your problem-solving urges. In other words, if you accept that the way things are is just fine, then you will never feel the need to look at other horizons. But when you recognize the problem of the status quo, you will go and search for missing links and boundaries that can be shifted.

This book is all about the periodic system. The best introduction to the new ideas presented in this book is to suggest the following exercise. Take a large sheet of paper and draw a grid of 18 vertical columns and 7 horizontal lines and then proceed to fill in the elements in the usual way, starting with Hydrogen, Helium, Lithium, etc.
Next take the most extensive Materia Medica you can find and make a note of the most important rubrics of each element in its appropriate compartment. When you have done that stand back and take a look. You will notice that most of the spaces are empty. Now ask yourself this question: “Why are there so many empty spaces, while others are filled up with polychrests like Ferrum metallicum, Phosphorus, Sulphur, or Aurum metallicum? Are you beginning to get a sense of the problem? You have just asked yourself a very heuristic question. The only step that lies between a question and an answer is ACTION! That is precisely what Jan Scholten did and the result is this book: a Materia Medica of the periodic system. The book that is in front of you right now will enable you to start filling in those empty compartments.

From symptoms to system
From mind-body to vital force
From human to non-human-specific
From confusion to clarity
From arbitrariness to a specific method
To increasing levels of success
may we reach the depth that the spirit can rise!

Excerpt from Introduction:  As “Sankaran’s System” gained popularity all over the world a need was felt to have a ready reference work to the entire body of Dr. Sankaran’s work. The first edition of “Sankaran’s Schema” aimed to bring in a nutshell in a tabulated form the different concepts and information spread all over his books - The Spirit of Homeopathy, The Substance of Homeopathy, The System of Homeopathy, The Sensation in Homeopathy and An Insight Into Plants (Vol I, II & III) and Sensation Refined. The Schema has been very well received and there were many suggestions that it should be expanded so as to make it more complete and up-to-date. In fact this edition contains information from several future books by Rajan Sankaran including Survival (Recognizing Animal Remedies) and Structure (Experiences with the Mineral Kingdom). Many useful suggestions came from Felicia Ann Hubrich and Roberto Gava. The development of the Vital Quest software programme with Paresh Vasani was very helpful in updating the Schema. The planning, collating and execution of this and the earlier edition of the Schema has been done by Meghna Shah.

We must add a note of caution that the Schema is meant only for people who have read the above mentioned books of Dr. Rajan Sankaran and who are familiar with his concepts and method. Without this background, the Schema should not be used With this background however the Schema has proven a very valuable tool. We hope that his more complete and comprehensive edition will further help the practitioners.

An Insight Into Plants Volume I & II (2 book set) (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2007

CA$275.00

This is the latest book by the author of “The Spirit of Homoeopathy”, “The Substance of Homoeopathy” and “The System of Homoeopathy”. The earlier books proved to be milestones in Homeopathy introducing the ideas of delusions, miasms and kingdoms. In this book Dr. Sankaran provides a framework of how the plant kingdom can be classified and understood.

He traces the common sensation of each family and shows how this sensation can be seen in the remedies in that family. The remedies are differentiated by the miasm to which they belong.

Thus a grid of plant remedies is created that looks like the periodic table of the elements. Illustrated with over a hundred successfully treated cases and several provings, this book opens up the plant kingdom as never before.

Dr. Sankaran also introduces his new approach to case taking which emphasizes the importance of going beyond body and mind to what he terms the vital sensation. He explains how a thorough understanding of the chief complaint itself leads to this deeper level and acts as the pivot around which the case revolves.

Used in conjunction with the understanding of the plant families, this new approach has shown remarkable results in practice.

“Rajan Sankaran has added a new and vital discovery to homoeopathy. After his important steps about the basic delusion and situational materia medica in his book  “The Spirit of Homoeopathy” this new discovery is a major break through.”  - Jan Scholten in his Foreword

The work of a homeopathic student while studying and applying materia medica is one to constantly compare and differentiate. He must compare the pathogenesis of a remedy with the recorded anamnesis of the patient; he must differentiate the apparently similar symptoms of two or more medicinal agents in order to select the simillimum. To enable the student or practitioner to so this correctly the student must have proper knowledge of the individuality of the remedy; something that is peculiar, uncommon, or sufficiently characteristic in the polychrest remedy that may be used as a pivotal point of comparison. This pivotal point may be a 'keynote', a 'characteristic', or the 'red strand of rope'. This excellent work by Dr. H.C. Allen helps the reader to grasp the PQRS symptoms in no time.

I. The Laws and Principles of Cure
II. The Principles of Homeopathy in Practical Application

"About twenty-five percent of the physicians in the United States were homeopaths at the turn of the century. In The Science of Homeopathy, George Vithoulkas provides an objective and concise treatise of this approach, focusing upon the basic principles and clinical applications of' homeopathy. Through the integration of homeopathic and allopathic medicines, a true system of health care can evolve with an emphasis upon the individual as an integrated organism."
-Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD
University of California School of Medicine. San Francisco.
Homeopathy, the "energy medicine," is a branch of medical science based on the principle that disease can be cured by strengthening the body's defense mechanism with substances selected for their energy-giving properties. In homeopathy, derived from the words "homeo" and "pathos," meaning "similar suffering," a cure is selected which, in its crude form, would produce in a healthy body the same symptoms found in a sick person suffering from the specific disease. But this crude substance, selected from herbs, minerals, or chemicals, is diluted and purified beyond the point of harm to its quintessential state of energy. In contrast to traditional (allopathic) medicine, by which symptoms are treated with toxic drugs which weaken the body, homeopathic medicine aims to change the body's energy levels which lie at the root of disease. Founded in the nineteenth century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, for whom Philadelphia's Hahnemann Hospital is named, the practice of homeopathy has, over the last ten years, experienced a resurgence of interest, as more and more enlightened doctors and patients discover the powers of natural curative energies.
In The Science of Homeopathy, George Vithoulkas has compiled a clear and comprehensive text outlining both the theory and practice of this important medicine. In Section One, "The Laws and Principles of Cure," Vithoulkas sets forth the principles of electrodynamic energy, the "vital force," predisposition to disease, and the selection of homeopathic remedies. In Section Two, "Practical Application," he gives a detailed explanation of the methods of diagnosis, and the preparation, administration, and evaluation of homeopathic cures. Written in clear, concise language, with ample illustrations, references, and case studies, The Science of Homeopathy is an excellent reference for homeopathic physicians and an informative introduction for the interested lay person.

The bird remedies have rapidly become a significant part of practice. The general picture of the bird remedy may be relatively clear but the differences between the different species can be subtle and hard to pin down precisely.
This book brings together information on forty different remedies, much f it not readily available elsewhere. It gives a general outline of the features important to birds and how these features are expressed in the bird remedies. It then looks at the individual remedies and details the way that particular issues are important in one remedy and less so in others. It also looks at the emerging relationships between bird families and such things as the relationship between predator and prey.
Transformation between the realms: The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle different between its members. Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees.
“Peter’s series of books has been a revelation. The discrimination between insects and birds is so succinct it is hard to believe it is so true. I can think of no homeopathic books available which give so much wisdom for such a small cost! They have inspired my practice, and benefited my patients.” – Geoff Johnson
“Peter brings a fine focus that penetrates the outer veils to reveal the simpler and truer nature of things. This leads to brevity of expression as well as concentration of the material: an aqua vitae from which we may sip and understand.

There are a large number of spider remedies that have been proved and are now available and it is often difficult to differentiate between them. With the spider remedies the need for extremely precise and careful differentiation seems to be even more important than it is with other remedies. When a spider remedy is called for, those that are not exactly correct will often have very little or no significant effect and only the one that is indicated will be effective.
This book includes an understanding of the general spider picture that will show the need for a spider remedy. It also includes a detailed picture of the known spiders and their distinguishing features which can be used to differentiate between them.

Excerpt from the Introduction: The times I have used Cactaceae remedies I am often in the situation where I am helping people face their death. It is interesting to consider that there is a group of remedies that can be used near the end of life. These patients came to me with severe disease where it was almost impossible to resolve their illness. The best we can do, and often what these patients came to me for, was to accompany them to their end in the best possible way: giving a sense to their life and their final weeks of existence.
The concept of destructiveness is significant in Cactaceae and is an important concept to consider anytime we are treating severely decompensated cases. It is essential to understand there are two different issues related to the idea of destructiveness. There is a physiological destructiveness that is seen in every person, in every remedy, and in every family. Every remedy has a destructive phase and life necessarily has a negative entropy. The self-destructive attitude is an essential component of this family of remedies, but even a remedy like Pulsatilla can have a destructive aspect.

Raising a Vaccine Free Child - Wendy Lydall

Raising a Vaccine Free Child - Wendy Lydall

CA$33.00

‘Wendy Lydall’s book ‘Raising a Vaccine Free Child’ exposes the myths of vaccination in no uncertain terms. It reveals many of the delusions and misconceptions that pervade this procedure in which my profession is involved. There is much in this fully referenced book that I previously did not know.’ - Dr. Mike Godfrey

Vaccination is presented to parents as a safe, scientific procedure, which no responsible parent would query. Yet an increasing number of parents are questioning the validity of this 200 year old ritual. The vaccine industry has responded to this skepticism by introducing coercive measures in many countries in order to achieve compliance.

Since its inception in 1795 by Edward Jenner, vaccination has been an unscientific, commercially-based procedure, which is now aligned with powerful pharmaceutical interests. At the same time, infectious disease pose a significant threat to the health and well-being of children in all strata of society.

Anti-vaccinationists make statements which contradict official pronouncements. Some activists make wild claims for alternative methods for disease prevention. How does a parent find a way through the maze of conflicting information?

Wendy Lydall presents a comprehensive, scientifically-based guide to the myths, facts, problems and solutions associated with raising a vaccine-free child.

The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema - Robin Logan

The Homeopathic Treatment of Eczema - Robin Logan

CA$35.00

Sets out a practical basis for the treatment of eczema within the context of classical homoeopathy.

Every homeopath will tell you about the difficulties of treating eczema and Robin Logan is not pretending otherwise. Accordingly, his book is not a recipe book but a serious study guide, in which he locates our difficulties not in the condition, but in the way we approach it. The book is an invitation for a true holistic approach, which he defines as not only being "the need to heal mind, body, and spirit... but additionally perceive the inter-relatedness of all aspects of the person and seek to make connections between seemingly disparate signs and symptoms."

The publisher:

Eczema is one of the most commonly encountered conditions in everyday practice and can pose difficult and perplexing problems for the homoeopath. This book sets out a practical basis for its treatment within the context of classical homoeopathy.
The author begins by defining the condition by reference to its conventional treatment, since most patients will have taken this route first and are likely to be familiar with the terminology of their diagnosis and the pharmaceutical preparations they have received.
He then describes techniques of case-taking that are particularly appropriate to eczema. This is followed by a full discussion of case analysis, including the relevance of particulars in the hierarchy of symptoms and the subject of one-sided cases, or cases with few other symptoms, with a view to helping the reader to increase his or her own understanding of the issues involved. Further chapters cover all aspects of case management, among them suppression, aggravation, potency, repetition of the dose, adjunctive measures and commonsense advice. The overall discussion is supported by twenty-two case histories.
The book concludes with a compact materia medica of forty-two remedies which the author has found to be of value in his own experience, studied under the headings of their characteristic physical, mental and general symptoms. There is a general index, a remedy index and a rubric index.
Robin Logan qualified at the College of Homoeopathy in London in 1984 and was registered with the Society of Homoeopaths in 1986. He was elected a Fellow in 1996 and is a past editor of the Society's journal, The Homoeopath. He practises in Surrey, Sussex and London.
