Discovering Homeopathy - Your Introduction to the Science and Art of Homeopathic Medicine - Dana Ullman, 1991


Discovering Homeopathy is a revised, updated edition of Homeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century.
"The important concepts of homeopathy should be studied most seriously not only by those in medicine but in all social sciences. Dana Ullman's book is an eye-opener!"
-Robert Muller, Former Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations
"Too often books on alternative medicine resort to doctor-baiting and mellow-speak psychobabble. This book does neither. The author states his case for homeopathy well by citing numerous double-blind laboratory and clinical studies that merit the attention of medical professionals and the general public alike."
-Marvin McMillen, M.D., Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Surgery, Yale Medical School
"In the future, comprehensive health care will require an efficacious balance between allopathic, behavioral, and homeopathic interventions. By documenting the double-blind research concerning homeopathy and its clinical significance, Discovering Homoeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century represents a landmark book in establishing this vital synthesis." 
- Kenneth R. Pelletier, Ph.D., Associate Clinical Professor, U.C.S.F. School of Medicine, and health consultant to IBM, AT&T, Xerox, and other major corporations
"The time has come to look again at even more basic ideas of the nature of living things in the light of recent advances in biology, physics, and electronics. I believe that this approach will provide verification for therapies such as homeopathy. Discovering Homoeopathy: Medicine for the 21st Century presents a clear, concise, and fascinating review of the present status and scope of homeopathy for the general reader."

Homeopathy for Birth Trauma - Harry van der Zee, 2007

Homeopathy for Birth Trauma - Harry van der Zee, 2007


For me this is a brilliant book with wonderful, in depth cases about birth trauma healing and vividly demonstrating its profound effects upon life. I know a lot about this subject, as I wrote a book partly on this, yet I learnt a lot more from 'Homeopathy for Birth Trauma'. The theory Harry van der Zee gives, inspired by Stanislav Grof, and directly linked to The Organon, is demonstrated by a wide variety of fascinating birth trauma case studies. This is homeopathy at its best, cutting edge and rooted in great cases from this millennium that we can easily relate to. - Peter Chappell FSHom

This very well researched, beautifully written book is suitably documented with several case studies which establish the idea that the birth process could provide very useful clues for a patient's state. It gives us impetus to test the idea in our practice so that we can find yet one more area where we can look for or confirm the remedy. - Rajan Sankaran MD

Miasms in Labour: A revision of the homeopathic theory of the miasms a process towards health - Harry van der Zee, 2007

Miasms in Labour: A revision of the homeopathic theory of the miasms a process towards health - Harry van der Zee, 2007


‘Miasms in labour’ discusses a revision of the homeopathic theory of the miasms. It starts with researching an analogy between the birth process and the miasms. A deeper analysis of the miasms leads to a new perception of them. By discussing their connection with the individuation process their function in the development of the human psyche is clarified.

A book with a refreshing and challenging view on the miasms, written in a clear and comprehensive way.  - Corrie Hiwat

For some two centuries homeopathy had no connection with the mainlands of science. In this book Harry van der Zee is building a bridge with psychology. He makes a connection between the miasms and the birth process...and succeeds in giving the miasms a much greater depth by connecting them with the individuation process. Apart from this ‘Miasms in labour’ is already a valuable book for all the beautiful cases and remedy pictures.  - Jan Scholten, MD

This book of Harry van der Zee on a new understanding of the miasms and the essences of many remedies through the process of pregnancy and birth is brilliant. This book is an important step towards a deeper understanding of miasms and its application to practice. The connection that Harry made between pregnancy, birth, biblical stories on the creation of the world, mythology and psychology is wonderful. This book helped me in realizing better the truth and depth of homeopathy. After reading the book, I felt much more confident in the ability of homeopathy. After reading the book, I felt much more confident in the ability of homeopathy to treat and cure severe pathologies, by using the miasmatic approach.  - Dr. Chaim Rosenthal

Van der Zee’s ideas regarding the miasms encompass many fields of knowledge, and to a certain degree even resonate with Kentian ‘truths’...the ideas are presented in a most coherent and eloquent way, woven beautifully to make a colourful fabric. It makes a lot of sense, it ‘clicks’ at many stages, and that goes to support the validity of the theory. I enjoyed this book also for its visual attractiveness, with original pictures painted especially to enrich the intellectual experience it has to offer.  - The Homeopath

Prisma: The Arcana of Materia Medica Illuminated, Similars and Parallels Between Substance and Remedy (Third Edition) - Frans Vermeulen, 2004

Prisma: The Arcana of Materia Medica Illuminated, Similars and Parallels Between Substance and Remedy (Third Edition) - Frans Vermeulen, 2004


Excerpt from Introduction: Prisma Materia Medica points out parallels and similars between homeopathic drug pictures and the substances from which they are derived. In addition, it clarifies and illuminates lesser known aspects of smaller polychrests. Much has been changed since the time that Hahnemann and Hering undertook their provings, not only regarding the criteria of provings but also in terms of the information on the substances. We have much more information at our disposal today and it seems foolish not to use all available resources to build a better materia medica. Since it is out sole duty to heal the sic, to paraphrase Grimmer, “we cannot afford to ignore intelligent help from any source as long as this aid available is based on law and common sense.”

Fungi - Kingdom Fungi Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 2 - Frans Vermeulen, 2007

Fungi - Kingdom Fungi Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 2 - Frans Vermeulen, 2007


Excerpt from Introduction: Fungi and Fungal Diseases. Interesting in fungi is mushrooming. Increasingly explored by mycologists, medical scientists, gourmets, folklorists, thrill-seeking adventurers, and mind-expansionists alike, this often-overlooked group of organisms provides us with food, drink, valuable medicines, industrial chemicals, recreational drugs, and unsurpassed marvels of nature. Some even take care of our radioactive waste. The role of fungi in evolutionary processes is now better understood and their value as recyclers and symbionts better appreciated Symbolically associated with plant roots, fungi distribute essential nutrients, there by transforming inhospitable environments into hospitable ones and enabling plants to settle and grow. Their role in evolution of Mother Earth is now believed to have been the guidance of water-inhabiting algae onto dry land.
The various repertories and homeopathic encyclopedias list 72 names of fungal remedies [fungal compounds included]. Of these, 32 fungi are represented in the abbreviation lists by nothing more than a name, i.e. there are no symptoms, whilst of the remaining 40 fungi 27 have less than twenty symptoms. It leaves us with 13 fungi we might possibly come across when repertorizing. Yet, even that number does not reflect the actual situation. Our understanding of the entire kingdom is based in essence on a total of three fungi: Agaricus, Bovista and Claviceps [Secale], with a few more having a place in the background: Psilocybe, Ustilago, Sticta, Polyporus officinalis, Candida ablicans, and the fungi compounds Alcoholus, Penicillinum. This well-known trio supplies the rudiments, the basics, the ABC of the homeopathic perception of the kingdom. One may safely assume that such a foundation is too narrow.

Monera - Kingdom Bacteria and Viruses: Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 1 - Frans Vermeulen, 2005

Monera - Kingdom Bacteria and Viruses: Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 1 - Frans Vermeulen, 2005


Excerpt from Introduction: Bacterial benefits. Monera are bacteria. They play a major role in homeopathy. They have no place as a group and their symtpms pitcures are often obscure. The current trent of facilitating the selection of remedies on the basis of their place in the natural kingdoms, not only ignores the fungi as a distinct unit, but also the micro-organisms. There are some 80 bacteria listed in the remedy abbreviation list. SOme of them are symptomless, whereas a few others have thousands of symtoms.
Bacterial remedies fall into three categories: allopathic drugs synthesized from bacterial metabolites; normal commensal of the microbial flora; species associated with bacterial diseases. The latter category contains the major nosodes: Medorrhinum, Syphilinum, and Tuberculinum. Psorinum can be included or excluded, depending on one’s view. [See Penicillium, Spectrum Vol. 2].
A step forward in realizing the importance of micro-organisms night be the recent introduction of new “miasms” in addition to the traditional quartet. However, these new miasms mainly serve as categorization models and hardly pay attention to the micro-organisms associated with them.

Synoptic Materia Medica 2: The Compliment to Prisma (Third Edition) - Frans Vermeulen, 2003


Excerpt from Preface: The second edition of Synoptic Materia Medica 2 contains additional information from various sources. Besides recent issues of homeopathic journals, later editions of new provings have been consulted. The SIGNS-section has been elaborated upon which material from books that I recently discovered on the subjects of botany, herbalism and folklore, always with the purpose to increase the possibilities of understanding the homeopathic drug picture. Here and there references to “Flower Essences” are made. Interesting to note is the recent increase in publications of books about the healing powers and “wisdom” of trees. I have availed myself of this information where it was applicable.

The Charm of Homeopathy: About life in general and homeopathy in particular - Anne Vervarcke, 2008

The Charm of Homeopathy: About life in general and homeopathy in particular - Anne Vervarcke, 2008


This is the first English book, addressed to professional homeopaths, where Anne Vervarcke explains her view on the vital disturbance. As disease is nothing but a concept-like disturbance on the vital level, the challenge is to understand and perceive the coherent, symbolic pattern, displayed by the patient. When we manage to recognize this pattern we are looking in the eye of the disturbance and at the same time, we have the answer for a cure. When this happens, the Charm of Homeopathy is at its best.
Anne Verarcke (15-10-1952, Oostende, Belgium) was the director and teacher at the 'Centre for Classical Homeopathy' in Leuven for 15 years. This CKH organizes a five year training course in classical homeopathy in Flanders, a yearly seminar and a Post Graduate course. Anne Vervarcke who was trained in Bloemendaal and Amersfoort has a private clinic since 1989. She has been teaching since 1990, in the CKH which she established, and since few years she is giving seminars in different countries. In Belgium she gives a Post Graduate day once a month with live cases, of which an annual book is available. After attending countless seminars, investigating, practicing and teaching for over 15 years, she fully masters the art of homeopathy. In 1999 she published: 'Klassieke homeopathie: niet te geloven?!" and in 2005: '250 jaar na Hahnemann,' both in Dutch. These were mainly informative books for a broader public who want an understandable insight in homeopathy.

Predictive Homoeopathy - Part II Theory of Acutes - Prafull Vijayakar, 2000

Predictive Homoeopathy - Part II Theory of Acutes - Prafull Vijayakar, 2000


Excerpt from Introduction: Whenever Homeopaths, even successful Homeopaths encounter or come across cases of pneumonia and typhoid, they prefer to just refer the case to an allopathic physician. Most of the time the reason forwarded is “Homeopathy is a slow acting therapy”, “it is meant for chronic diseases only not for emergencies”. “ You get the acute attack of this disease controlled with allopathy then we’ll treat you to raise your immunity so you don’t get it again. “ This lame excuses put forward even by so called Classical Homeopaths, expose the limitations of those Homeopaths and not Homeopathy.
Remember Homeopathy is a complete science. Hence limitations and scope of Homeopathy is the Homeopath himself. The Homeopath’s knowledge is what falters. If not, if is the application  of this knowledge which falters.

Many Materia Medicas have been written on therapeutics of fevers and acute disease. Yet Homeopaths find it difficult to get results in such cases. The reasons may be many, but the main reason is lawlessness i.e. all the 7 cardinal principles of Homeopathy are not applied and the laws like that of Hering’s, are bypassed.

Essence of Materia Medica (Second Edition) - George Vithoulkas, 2010

Essence of Materia Medica (Second Edition) - George Vithoulkas, 2010


‘George Vithoulkas and his work needs no introduction or recommendation. Yet, this is  book which we would like to recommend to every homeopath. In the ‘Essence of Materia Medica’, he has painted the essence of 51 remedies. While reading every remedy, a clear portrait of the patient with minute details comes out in front of you. He has given a description of the type of person most commonly affected by a remedy at the start of most remedy portraits for example, the Kalium carbonicum patient with a strong sense of duty heightened to and inflexible, rigid degree. In every medicine Vithoulkas has described  a common theme/thread going at all three levels of the patient, for example in Alumina, the theme of delayed action and slowness is visible at all three levels. Many medicines are compared with other closely related medicines having similar symptoms. The comparison of the essence of various related medicines helps a lot in choosing a correct remedy. This book is reflective of the vast clinical experience and knowledge of the author. With this book, he has carried the efforts of Kent in creating the remedy portraits to the next level. He has himself acknowledged that he has drawn a lot from the Kent’s Materia Medica and Repertory. He has been able to show the development of remedy pictures in a very evolutionary manner, which helps in creating a better understanding of the medicines presented in this work. THe book is well compiled and the presentation of the material is very lucid and systematic.  - Dr Medini Daterao & Dr Manish Bhatia

George Vithoulkas was born in 1932 and lives on the island of Alonissos, Greece. He was an Engineer by profession and was introduced to homeopathy accidentally when he got hold of a book on pharmacy. It was in 1960 in South Africa that he began his homeopathic studies and these were then continued in India. He studied homeopathy exclusively and then got into practice and later also started teaching. Since 1967, he has been teaching classical homeopathy. In 1994, he opened the now world-famous International Academy for Classical Homeopathy in the Greek island of Alonissos. He was awarded the Alternative Nobel Prize in 1996. George has written books for both the layperson and the homeopathic practitioner. George’s clear presentation and penetrating studies are a landmark in the world of homeopathy.

A New Model for Health and Disease  - George Vithoulkas

A New Model for Health and Disease - George Vithoulkas


"Virus transformations as a consequence of pharmacological pollution in the human body/mind ecological system is a compelling hypothesis based on the data presented in George Vithoulkas' A New Model for Health and Disease. It strongly underscores the need to focus on an 'energy' medicine to correct the deficiencies of our present 'chemical' medicine."
-William A. Tiller, Ph.D., Materials Science and Engineering, Stanford University

In this long-awaited ground-breaking treatise, theorist and homeopathic teacher George Vithoulkas presents a new paradigm for modern medicine. Established medicine has failed in its mission to prevent or cure many diseases, Vithoulkas asserts, because of the excessive and often needless use of powerful drugs. Western medicine has a limited view of the total organism and the true sources of disease.

Vithoulkas relates the increasing incidence of AIDS, cancer, asthma, epilepsy, schizophrenia, Alzheimer's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and other difficult-to-control illnesses to the weakening of the immune system from over-prescribing of drugs. Only when we fully integrate the role of the psyche, spirit and emotions into our explanations of illness, he says, will we be able to generate a fuller definition of health, and change our conception and methods of treatment.

from A New Model for Health and Disease...

"The quality of our health depends almost entirely on the quality of micro-organisms that exist normally within our body and thus form the basis of our life. If we disturb their equilibrium by pumping all this 'mold' into the organism, we are going to have a 'moldy' organism eventually."

"The hypothesis in this treatise is that the HIV (Human Immunosuppressive Virus) would not have appeared and affected the human race in such an epidemic manner unless it had been preceded by widespread and frequent use of antibiotics which prepared the ground by breaking down the organism's immune system."

George Vithoulkas teaches and lives in Greece. His books include Homeopathy: Medicine of the New Man and The Science of Homeopathy.

Levels of Health - The Second Volume of “The Science of Homeopathy” - George Vithoulkas and Erik van Woensel, 2010

Levels of Health - The Second Volume of “The Science of Homeopathy” - George Vithoulkas and Erik van Woensel, 2010


“The Levels of Health” is a highly original contribution to medicine in general and to homeopathy in particular written by Professor George Vithoulkas. By describing a means of knowing whether a patient is improving or regressing under any treatment, whether homeopathic or otherwise, provides the possibility for the practitioner to evaluate the case and make a better and more accurate prognosis.
The subject of Levels of Health was mentioned briefly in George Vithoulkas’ main textbook, “The Science of Homeopathy”, which was written in 1977 ; now, for the first time, with the benefit of 50 years of homeopathic practice, experience and diligent observation, George Vithoulkas presents a fully developed theory and a way of applying it in everyday practice.
In his elaboration of the concept of Levels of Health, he discusses in detail all the possible reactions of the organism’s defense mechanism under the homeopathic treatment and the meaning of those reactions. He elaborates the parameters that define the Level of Health to which a patient belongs in a system of twelve levels.
The second part, “Case studies”, concerns mainly the practical application of homeopathy; it was written by Erik van Woensel. This chapter deals in depth with case analysis, which is illustrated with cases of various degrees of difficulty. Describing the analysis step by step, the author shows how the principles of the Levels of Health are applied in homeopathic practice.
Every homeopath needs to be able to evaluate the treatment he or she has given and understand why it does not always bring the expected results. “The Levels of Health” provides the tools for accomplishing that task.

The Science of Homeopathy - George Vithoulkas, 2009


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.
