An Insight Into Plants Volume III - Rajan Sankaran, 2007

CA$170.00

This much awaited book continues on from the groundbreaking books, “An Insight Into Plants: Volumes I and II”. It presents explorations of the vital sensations for six more plant families and for the Fungi kingdom. The presence of many illustrative cases from Dr Sankaran’s practice and from colleagues worldwide confirms and adds dimensions to many plant remedies.

The book is divided into three parts.

Part one contains more cases from the plant families of the previous two volumes. It provides more elaboration and a deeper understanding of the remedies already categorized under the chart of remedy versus miasm.

Part two of this book features the derivation of vital sensation, miasms and illustrative cases, differentiations and source/alert words for:
Brassicaceae/Cruciferae
Carnivorous plants
Dioscoreaceae
Fungi (Kingdom)
Piperaceae
Rosaceae
Rutaceae

The third part of the book incorporates various tables including the latest table on vital sensation and miasm of plant remedies.

A new feature of this volume is the inclusion of photographs for each family so as to give the reader a closer feel for particular plants.

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

“For a long time there has been little original writing concerning the theory and practice of Homoeopathy...In Rajan Sankaran’s new book we have something refreshing and interesting, bursting with the ideas of this fabulous Bombay clinician...

The book is divided into four sections: Philosophy, The Mind, Case Taking and Finding the Remedy, and Materia Medica. A number of major themes can be traced throughout the book which is basically an expanded version of lecture notes from the last five years. These unfold as the author tells the story of how his ideas developed, starting with the insight that ‘potentized remedies have dynamic effects only’, and ending with examples of his Situational Materia Medica...

Sankaran is a master detective and, with a great knowledge of the Repertory, he uses the much neglected sections on delusions and dreams in new and imaginative ways, taking a remark of the patient or an observation and translating it into repertory language with great skill. The book is an inspiration for us to ‘free up’ in our use of the Repertory and to consider the meaning behind our patients’ remarks...

In his situational Materia Medica Sankaran puts into imaginative nutshells the basic delusions or unsuitable postures of a number of homeopathic medicines...

There are other ideas in the 44 chapters of Sankaran’s book. I have not mentioned his discussion of compensated and uncompensated symptoms, his use of dreams, his technique of case-taking, or the idea of polarities within a homeopathic medicine. Nor all of these ideas are new, but putting them together into his own framework Sankaran often makes them more memorable and more relevant.”  -British Homeopathic Journal

The Sensation in Homoeopathy (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2009

CA$120.00

This much awaited book describes, using numerous case examples, the concept and use of Rajan Sankaran’s latest, and perhaps most significant contribution, ‘The Seven Levels of Experience’ which enables a homeopath to know at all times, in any given case, where to begin and where to aim. In this way of working, a definitive pathway for case taking is provided, a means by which to observe and utilize the active energy patterns of the patient (hand gestures and body movements), plus a way of matching the patient's level to the remedy potency that is required.
Another key component of this system has to do with becoming attuned to the patient's sensations. There is a certain energy in precise sensation(s) having to do with both the chief complaint and the general state of the patient, which has enormous significance. Dr. Sankaran has termed these as the vital sensations. Vital sensations are not merely physical symptoms or emotions, but rather the common sensations that connect the mind and the body. Indeed the vital level is deeper than the mind or the body; it is at the center point of the diseased state. These are non human specific phenomena i.e. not exclusive to the domain of only human beings and thus take us directly to the source of the remedy itself.
Dr. Sankaran's system incorporates miasm and kingdom classification (plant, animal, mineral, nosode etc.) as well as the 'Levels' into one comprehensive, sophisticated, yet elegantly simple way of perceiving the patient. It is a quantum leap in the understanding of disease and has resulted in remarkably increased level of success and the use of numerous remedies, including some not well proved ones and yet others previously not even known. In many other cases one has been able to use old remedies in an entirely new light, with a deeper understanding.

Structure - Experiences with the Mineral Kingdom, Volume 1 & 2 (2 book set) (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2009

CA$240.00

Homeopathy has evolved from a symptom-based to a systemic approach where each remedy is seen as a  part of a group to which it belongs in nature, rather than as an individual entity. Each patient is guided to explore his innermost experience, or Sensation, where he speaks the language of nature. In order to recognize what language he is speaking, it becomes necessary to know the features of each kingdom and subkingdom in nature. For this purpose it becomes imperative to create a body of work that looks at the Materia Medica from a systematic point of view.
After elaborating on his kingdom idea and the Sensation level, Dr. Rajan Sankaran has been consolidating these with a look into each kingdom. This work is the second of a trilogy on the various kingdoms, the first being ‘An Insight Into Plants’ and the third being ‘Survival’ (on the animal kingdom).

In the case of the Mineral Kingdom, the periodic table readily lends itself to the task of classification. Its seven row and 18 columns can be understood, seen and experienced as stages of human development. Such an understanding leads us to prescribe new remedies with accuracy. Dr. Rajan Sankaran’s recent explorations into the rows, backed by several clinical cases, provings and research, have thrown new light on the Mineral kingdom that makes it significantly easier to recognize the remedies in practice.

Bowel Nosodes in Homeopathic Practice 2nd ed - John Saxton

Bowel Nosodes in Homeopathic Practice 2nd ed - John Saxton

CA$60.00

The group of eleven remedies known as the Bowel Nosodes are unique in both their derivation and the opportunities that they offer. Although they have some indications in acute homeopathic prescribing, because of the connection and resonance that they have with the miasmatic forces that are active in the body, they are particularly useful in the treatment of chronic disease. The origin of these remedies lies in human medicine, and there are still major indications in that field.
In this book the development of these important remedies is traced and the concept behind them is explained and discussed within the context of modern homeopathic thought. The general uses of the group in the clinical situation are outlined and the materia medica of the individual bowel nosodes is discussed. The methodology is illustrated with case histories from both the human and animal worlds, demonstrating the common guidelines for the bowel nosodes’ use that are applicable to all species.
John Saxton qualified from the Royal Veterinary College in 1964, obtaining his Membership of the Faculty of Homeopathy in 1988, and his Fellowship in 1996. After nearly forty years in general practice he now runs a homeopathic referral practice as well as writing, teaching and examining in homeopathy. He lectures nationally and internationally to doctors, veterinary surgeons and nurses, both independently and as part of the Homeopathic Professionals Teaching Group. John is a teacher and examiner for the Faculty of Homeopathy and the International Association for Veterinary Homeopathy. He has authored Miasms as Practical Tool and co-authored the Textbook of Veterinary Homeopathy.

You’ll also find particular information about mineral remedies like Calcium iodatum and Lithium sulphuricum and substances like Naphtalinum and Lecithin.
To be really complete a fresh veterinary homeopathic approach will deal with the European crisis of Foot-and-mouth disease in spring 2001. And of course you may expect a clear presentation of our traditional proving, which is Glechoma hederacea, also called Hedera helix or Common Ivy. It pictured a much more ‘common’ atmosphere during this week than the previous seminar with the ‘air of ascension of the Albatross.

You will be double inspired by the traditional recipes of the ‘high-standard-cuisine’ during the seminar. Many photographs may give an extra dimension to the recipes and the presentations.

Read it as we experienced it: enjoyment in an open air of learning from your homeopathic colleagues. ‘A Dutch treat’ you don’t want to miss.

Homoeopathy and Minerals - Jan Scholten, 1993

Homoeopathy and Minerals - Jan Scholten, 1993

CA$70.00

Review of the book in SSC (the Dutch Homoeopathic Journal) by Frans Kusse:

"When I met the ideas of Jan Scholten for the first time in December 1992, I was surprised: enormous possibilities offered themselves. Now, some months later, having had experiences with these 'new' remedies, I can speak of a fundamental revolution in homeopathic thinking. The method Jan is offering in his book, seems too beautiful to be true, but it works! It is not easy to explain his method briefly, but I shall try to do so with an example from his college in February 1993.
A woman of 30 comes with a variety of complaints, such as allergy to the sun, pain in the right forehead, sciatica right, intestinal troubles, swollen and painful breasts before menses, and fatigue.
Mind: she needs attention, and compliments. 'I didn't dare to ask for attention and got irritated when my husband didn't say anything of my work. My mother had too little time for us and I was the one who managed. I was a big girl'.
The theme of 'attention' is found in the Muriaticums, and the 'timidity' and 'insecurity' in the Calciums. The remedy: Calcium muriaticum ('desire for attention, but not daring to ask for it'). The woman got cured after the remedy.
By analyzing different minerals (Calcarea, Natrum, Phosphorus, Sulphur, Baryta etc.) and metals Jan has developed some key concepts for every element. In practice it is possible to make many combinations of these concepts and so find the remedy that fits the patient.
Try to imagine what it means once we have found the key concepts of every element of the periodic system .... Maybe that is what Kent felt when he said that all remedies could be found in one kingdom (mineral, plant or animal). ...This book gives us the start. We practicing homeopaths now have the job of verifying and expanding this information. A huge task and a fantastic challenge."
"Jan Scholten offers us a fascinating way to review our Materia Medica".
(Lorraine Taylor, in Homeopathic Links, 1994, no 2)
"Jan Scholten has given a brilliant start for an enormous enrichment of our Materia Medica".
(Kees Dam, Simillima, 1993, no 2)
"This book is a must for all homoeopaths and a revelation for all patient that are interested in homoeopathy".

Homoeopathy and the Elements - Jan Scholten, 2007

Homoeopathy and the Elements - Jan Scholten, 2007

CA$165.00

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.

Secret Lanthanides - Jan Scholten, 2009

Secret Lanthanides - Jan Scholten, 2009

CA$120.00

Secret Lanthanides describes the use of the Lanthanides and their salts in health and disease. It describes persons in a Lanthanide state and the cure with homeopathic potencies.

The Lanthanides are elements of the periodic system with atom number 57 till 73. They have strong electro-magnetic and light properties.

Autonomy is a major theme, hence the subtitle “Road to Independence”. The search for freedom can lead to a spiritual development and desire for self-control. The Lanthanides are needed for leading ones own life, going ones’ own way. It’s the road to individuality and individuation.

The psychological separation is physically reflected in the immune system and auto-immune diseases. The immune system separates own tissue from foreign substances, is has to find out what “own”.

“It is indeed a pleasure and honor to write this foreword to Jan Scholten’s latest work, “The Secret Lanthanides”. I am sure that like his earlier works, this one too will be very useful to the profession. The smile on the face of a successfully treated case is the main reward for such work.”   - Rajan Sankaran

“Jan Scholten’s discovery of the Lanthanides as homeopathic remedies has given us even more tools to cure profound pathology. After hearing his initial lectures on the Lanthanides and, subsequently prescribing some of them, I am delighted by the curative results.”   - Louis Klein

CA$270.00

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.

Excerpt from Foreword: It must bring the soul of James Tyler Kent great joy to see his repertory finally complete as the additions, corrections and changes in his own copy of the 2nd edition are finally incorporated by Frederik Schroyens in Synthesis Treasure Edition. Putting all the original corrections and additions of Kent into the Essential Synthesis makes this repertory more accurate and more inline with Kent’s thinking.

Kent’s is one of the major repertories which allows us to treat miasmatic problems, inherited chronic miasmatic tendencies and taints which are constantly progressing and which are today threatening the degeneration of mankind. The treatment of chronic miasmatic taints is the field of greatest importance of the Law of Similars as well as the use of this valuable repertory. It would have made him happy to know that his work was completed and that it was done in the way that Hahnemann would have done, more inline with Hahnemann’s teachings.

Cola - Homeopathic Proving of Cola nitida, Materia Medica, Cases - Bernd Schuster, 1999

CA$35.00

The new remedy Cola belongs to the group of drug remedies. Drugs are often used to heighten or expand perception, to enable the user to cross boundaries which Nature has set to the human powers of perception. The drugs cannabis, coca (“sacred plant of the Incas”), cola (“food of the gods”) and peyote (“flesh of God”) are seen as “divine substances” which create a link with the gods and spirits.
This full Hahnemannian proving with 23 participants revealed feelings of invincibility, the idea of being able to carry the whole world on one’s shoulders, or being able to see through the material person into the innermost being or read a person’s thoughts, i.e. mainly divine qualities and abilities which the provers ascribe to themselves, thus demonstrating a delusion of grandeur.
Insatiability is a central idea of the remedy (“I am like a bottomless pit”). The new remedy shows and effect in eating disorders (Insatiability and fear of being poisoned), mania and hyperactivity, disturbance of sugar metabolism, gastrointestinal illness with diarrhoea, problems with self-confidence, depression, sleepiness (fatigue), anxiety dreams and migraine. In Cola patients I have found a history of drug-taking with heroin, LSD and cocaine, a history of dipsomania or food abuse with others.

Bernd Schuster is classical homeopath and psychologist. With Bamboo he added an important remedy to homeopathic Materia Medica. Cola is his second homeopathic proving.

“And further, while we were preparing the so-called old medicines we never forgot our position as explorers of the unknown world of results, of effects; never forgetting the groundwork of our healing art, we prepared from time to time new machines also; we made regular provings at least once a year, often twice a year and even three times a year. These provings were the high feasts in our church, and you cannot consider yourselves true members of it without joining these feasts.
Proving is a most wonderful thing, the world has never known its like. We suffer, and we enjoy it; we sacrifice a little of our comfort, and gain years of strength by it; we go to school to learn, and we increase the certainty of the healing art. At the same time, to prove drugs is of all other ways the very best, the nearest and the easiest to learn to master our Materia Medica. It is the way to learn; to observe the art of arts, the principle one on which all others is based.”  - Constantine Hering

Excerpt from Introduction: Over the last few years I have completed complete Hahnemannian provings of Scorpion, Hydrogen, Chocolate, Brassica, Germanium, Neon and Adamas. These have provided me with the opportunity to gain a wealth of experience, and thus I offer this work as a catalogue of my knowledge to date, with the aim that it will lead to a greater understanding of the subject and to more provings of quality. To this end I have researched most available sources and combined these with my own understanding gained from conducting provings.

These notes are neither final nor definitive. Rather they are a guide, an assimilation of ideas to be revised and added to. Our science is young and we all have much to learn. I therefore look forward to the comments and ideas of my colleagues.

Many people are visual learners, this is an undeniable fact. So, why shouldn't we activate the visual memory capacity of our brain, and so keep better in our mind what we have learned?

When I was confronted with the numerous sensations of the various plant families, I asked myself how I could find a way to keep them in my mind, and how I could distinguish them easily.

I therefore started to creat drawings to get a picture from each plant family, which was much easier to keep in my mind than onlyt eh written word.

I felt it was very helpful to illustrate the main sensation and the opposite of the families, and after a short time they took shape, and became clear companions and good friends.

I would like to share this experience with other homeopaths and students of homeopathy.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and you will get a deep acquaintance with the sensations of the plant families.

I dedicate this book to my parents, my husband and best friend, Herbert, and my dear sons, Julius and Jonathan, who are my pride and joy.

CA$58.00

Inspiring Homeopathy is the final legacy of a brilliant homeopath. In it, Dr. Tinus Smits shares his vision that homeopathy can address the universal human experiences of coming into incarnation from the world of spirit. These "universal layers" include coming into the body; feeling unconditional mother love – or not, feeling abandoned, unworthy and insecure; and staying centered within ourselves while maintaining our oneness with the universe.

The layers also include common issues such as the trauma of abuse, and of the abused who may in turn become an abuser. Each of these seven layers can be resolved by a single remedy; and as one layer resolves, another one often emerges. This makes Inspiring Homeopathy a simple system to heal some of the deepest issues our clients face.

Tinus sheds new light on some classic remedies, such as Rhus tox, which already has the "delusion he will be murdered." In Tinus' system, Rhus tox helps heal every imaginable trauma, from sexual abuse and incest to torture, imprisonment and violence. He also developed a new form of mother's milk – Lac maternum, which expands on the "floating sensation" typical of milks to become the remedy for groundedness.

Inspiring Homeopathy introduces new remedies so useful they may become modern polychrests. Vernix caseosa, made from the waxy substance protecting a newborn's skin, has quickly become a widely used remedy for hypersensitives, for people with porous energetic boundaries, and for practitioners to protect themselves from their clients' energies.

Inspiring Homeopathy is also a frequent component of CEASE therapy, Tinus' brilliant method for reversing autism by systematically detoxifying vaccines, medications and environmental toxins. In this protocol, an Inspiring remedy often alternates with the detox remedies.

Homeopathy in the 21st century is becoming not only a system of medicine to treat pathology, but much more – an energetic support for the transcendent journey of spiritual growth. Inspiring Homeopathy is a powerful expression of that vision.

Digestive Organs: Pathway to the Centre - Rosina Sonnenschmidt

Digestive Organs: Pathway to the Centre - Rosina Sonnenschmidt

CA$43.00

Our digestive system stretches from the mouth to the anus. In-between, there are numerous processes of transformation, both physical and metaphorical. Stomach and gut problems are often the start of a long journey through chronic disease, because we have lost our connection with the centre of our being. If we want to get a grip on the illnesses of our time, we need to simplify our lives and begin exactly where these illnesses start: in the mouth, with the food we eat, and the digestion and letting go of impressions of every kind.

In the third volume of the series “Organ – Conflict – Cure,” Rosina Sonnenschmidt describes in detail the individual parts of the digestive tract with its conflicts and its possibilities of healing – from the mouth and gullet through to the small intestine, large intestine, and rectum. This work is another treasure trove of practical tips from the entire field of naturopathy. Together with the meaning of the Chinese system of correspondences, the book also covers germ-layer affiliation, tongue diagnosis, practical exercises on the energy of the solar plexus, and simple instructions on bowel cleansing.

Especially useful is the clear description of the biological conflicts of the digestive organs with their corresponding homeopathic remedies and naturopathic therapies. Such interesting remedies as Cortisonum, Nuphar luteum, Cynodon dactylon, Paeonia, and the bowel nosodes are presented. The illnesses discussed range from caries and gastritis through colitis ulcerosa to esophageal cancer.

A further work in this popular series that is “easily digestible” and equally suitable for therapists and laypeople, describing in a practical way the core problems of these central organs and the solutions to the problems they present.

The Organ-Conflict-Cure Series will be completed over the next two years. In total, there will be 12 volumes (plus an Index for the entire series), each dealing with a particular organ system.  The Series can be bought as a Set, or individually:
