CA$64.00

In 2002 Patricia supervised the proving of Lac maternum. Her clinical experience in lactation and birth as well as her extensive work with Lac humanum gives her the ability to differentiate between these two remedies made from human milk, the appropriate milk for Homo sapiens. She gives insight into how these two very important sarcodes complement one another and how they serve to assist all humans to maximise their potential.

The Genius of Homoeopathy - Lectures and Essays on Homeopathic Philosophy with Word Index - Stuart Close

CA$13.00

The Genius of Homoeopathy comprise a series of lectures delivered at the New York Homoeopathic Medical College. Close was a student of P.P. Wells and Bernhardt Fincke. This book is one of the clearest statements about the philosophical basis of homeopathic study ever compiled. It is written with extreme clarity. In this new Second Edition, to make the book user friendly, a new font has been used which is bigger in size and is a pleasure to read. We hope this new upgraded book will make the task of students and readers much easier and interesting.
Stuart Close was born on November 24, 1860 in Wisconsin, United States. In 1879 while Close was reading law, his father died and his mother then remarried to one San Francisco’s leading homeopathic practitioners. It was at this point that Dr. Stuart Close though of studying homeopathy and his step father then furnished him with a comprehensive training in Samuel Hahnemann’s Organon. In 1885 he graduated from the Medical College of the Pacific. His career is noted for its exactitude according to Hahnemann’s principles. The dedication and exactness with which Dr. Close pursued Hahnemann’s teachings, won him high praise with the latter’s followers.

The Complete Practitioner's Manual of Homoeoprophylaxis - Isaac Golden

The Complete Practitioner's Manual of Homoeoprophylaxis - Isaac Golden

CA$59.00

 

Homœoprophylaxis has been part of mainstream homeopathy since 1798, but its use remains controversial. Its history and evidentiary base is frequently misunderstood. This book aims to provide homeopaths, as well as practitioners of any modality and students with a complete grounding in the topic. It contains comprehensive instructions how to implement both short-term and long-term HP programs, a thorough presentation of the evidentiary base of HP as well as an in-depth discussion of its philosophical underpinnings. This is the most comprehensive resource currently available on the challenging topic of homeopathic immunisation.

Isaac explains the theoretical and conceptual framework of the homœoprophylactic approach. He provides the historical context. He discusses the observable data. The conclusion is clear – based upon this body of work, more research into the long-term effects of conventional vaccines and the effectiveness of potential homeopathic alternatives is essential. Alastair Gray, Department Head, Homeopathy, E.C.N.H.

Clinicians from all modalities regularly find that vaccines have affected the health of their patients. The ability to offer a non-toxic immunisation option with a strong evidentiary basis should be a welcome addition to any clinician’s resources. Isaac has provided the most thorough description of such an option – homœoprophylaxis – including detailed instructions on how to implement HP programs, answers to practical questions, plus evidence of safety and effectiveness. This manual has value to all practitioners who want to ensure that their patients have genuine choice in what is for many parent’s their most challenging health decision. Dr Simon Floreani, Chiropractor, Allied Health Ambassador, Political and Policy Advisor.

Dr. Golden has created a most practical and useful guide on homœoprophylaxis (HP). He clearly explains how he created these protocols and why they work with the statistical and real world evidence to support his work. The practitioner will feel confident in using homœoprophylaxis for clients that desire it, having understood not only the protocols but also case management, the historical use of HP by the homeopathic masters, and the controversial arguments for and against the practice. This compendium of Dr. Golden’s work is an interesting and enjoyable read which can truly enhance the homeopath's practice. Ananda More, Homeopath and film maker.

Dr Isaac Golden has been in clinical practice since 1984. He soon saw a need to develop and research the effectiveness and safety of a long-term homœoprophylaxis (HP) program. His data collection from 1986 to 2004 led to him being awarded the first PhD in a homeopathic research topic from a mainstream Australian university. The book represents the gathering of nearly 30 years practical experience in both using and researching HP.

Excerpt from Author’s Preface: We have no meas of reaching with our sense or of gaining essential knowledge, as to the process of life in the interior of man, and it is only at times granted us to draw speculative conclusions from what is happening, as to the manner in chich it may have occurred or taken place; but we are unab;le to furnish conculsive proofs of our explanations, from the changes which are observed in the inorganic kingdom; for the changes in living organic subjects have nothing in comone with those taking place in what is inorganic since they take place by processes entirely different. It is, therefore, quite natural that in presenting the Homeopathic Therapeutics I did not venture to explain how the cure of diseasese is effected by operating on the patient with substances possessing the power to excite very similar morbid symptoms in healthy persons. I furnished, indeed, a conjecture about it, but I did not desire to call it an explanation, i.e. a definite explanation incumbent upon us to cure similar symptoms correctly and successfully, according to a law of nature which is being constantly confirmed; but not to boast with abstract explanations, while we leave the patients uncured; for that is all which so-called physicians have hitherto accomplished.

The Child's World - New Approaches to the Homeopathic Treatment of Children - Johnston

CA$54.00

Homeopathic prescribing is undergoing a tremendous evolution due to the recent advent of ideas such as the grouping of remedies into families, connecting a child’s remedy to the mother’s during pregnancy and understanding how the remedy source is expressed through the patient’s symptoms, called source-based prescribing. These advances are also having a positive impact on the treatment of children. The Child’s World elaborates on the ways the new ideas in homeopathy can benefit children.

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

CA$38.00

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.

The Bowel Nosodes - John Paterson, 2003

CA$5.00

Excerpt from Introduction: The name of one of your illustrious countrymen, Louis Pasteur, will forever be remembered as the founder of the science of bacteriology. It was he who first isolated and identified a specific germ and related it to a definite clinical entity (disease). Following up on his discoveries, medical science concentrated on the laboratory technique for the isolation and identification of a specific germ for each known disease, and the Koch postulates were accepted as the standard for declaring any germ capable of pathogenesis - of having power to cause disease. The motto of the medical profession is still Tolle Causam, find the cause, and today there are many who consider that germs are the only cause of disease and are working to discover the specific germ or virus for well know clinical entities.
It must now be accepted as scientific fact that, specific germs, in many cases of disease, can be isolated and identified, but is it a true conclusion that the specific germ is always the cause of disease? The subject is too great to be dealt with in all its aspects in this short session, but a little time must be given to considering the general question, namely the role of the Bacterium in Nature because one’s opinion on this must determine the value one places on the use of bacterial products - vaccines or nosodes - in the treatment of disease. As the subject of this paper deals with the intestinal flora, I propose to limit my remarks to consideration of the role played by the B. coli and coliform organisms found in the intestinal tract.

The Art of Proving  by Sonya McLeod

The Art of Proving by Sonya McLeod

CA$96.00

Each and every homeopathic remedy contains within itself the ability to heal unique, characteristic signs and symptoms. These characteristic healing symptoms that are contained within each remedy are an unchanging eternal truth that remain constant through space and time. Homeopathic provings are an effective way to experience and interpret the signs and symptoms (i.e. the eternal healing effect) of remedies. Yet it is somewhat puzzling that provers are able to accurately access the remedy state during unconventional provings where no remedy is ingested, such as dream provings, meditative provings and trituration provings. Since discovering trituration provings in 2010, the author has found them to be a deep and extremely accurate way of exploring a remedy’s healing ability. During the process of making the remedy by hand, while triturating the substance with milk sugar, a doorway is opened to what Jungian psychologists call the collective unconscious. The collective unconscious is like a world database of information that each and every living thing on the planet is connected to. Contained within the database of the collective unconscious is the eternal, unchanging truth of the healing ability of each and every homeopathic remedy. Provings are the author’s higher calling, the vehicle through which her soul journeys towards wholeness. So far, Sonya has conducted provings of 14 different remedies over an eight year period and in this beautiful full colour work, nine complete remedy provings including physical, mental and thematic summaries are given for Albino ‘Ghost’ Redwood, Northwestern Crow, Herkimer Diamond, Woad, Wild Horse, Angelite, Black Kyanite, Raccoon and Giant Panda.

The Alchemy of Healing - Edward C Whitmont, 1993

CA$22.50

Body, Mind & Spirit - Mental & Spiritual Healing; Health & Fitness - Alternative Therapies

The publisher:

In The Alchemy of Healing Dr. Edward C. Whitmont explores the major themes of illness, health, and the practice of medicine. Uniquely qualified by his personal associations with such pioneers as Carl Jung, M. Esther Harding, Karl Konig, Elizabeth Wright Hubbard, and G.B. Stearns, Whitmont takes a daring plunge into the paradoxes of homeopathic medicine, psychoanalytic transference, quantum physics, and the Gaia Hypothesis. Deftly exploring such subjects as Jungian synchronicity, alchemy, the I Ching, and the Law of Similars, he hints at the unknown principles fusing organism, planet, and cosmos and at a healing principle so profound it is written in both the stars and the sub-molecular traces of molecules.

In this landmark work that addresses for the first time in our century the esoteric role of the physician in the drama of life and death, Whimont provides a forum for one of the most neglected voices of Western Civilization—that of disease—revealing how it is our own abandoned and depreciated voice. In challenging the myth of mechanical medicine he provides a clue as to how we might yet heal ourselves and our planet.

On the other axis he uses the quality of colour affinity, which he attributes to mental, physical and spiritual indications. In assessing and combining these qualities and forms, the practitioner is guided to a group of crystals, which have an affinity to the situation or condition at hand. The chart can be used as a foundation to select a gem essence, to take the homeopathic preparation of a gem or to wear the gem itself.

Syphilis (2nd Edition)  by Jeremy Sherr

Syphilis (2nd Edition) by Jeremy Sherr

CA$55.00

Over ten years have passed since the first edition of this book, and Saltire are happy to present this second enhanced edition. The Dynamic Materia Medica of Syphilis is a web composed of eleven syphilitic remedies, each approached from a different perspective, each representing a lesson in materia medica study; essays and provings, essences and toxicologies, affinities, poetry, mythology, history, analysis and synthesis are all spread over an underlying bed of philosophy. The left and right pages represent the parallel approaches of science and art. The synthesis of all these strands culminates in an exciting conclusion on the nature of the syphilitc miasm and its underlying psoric roots. While this book is an easy and enjoyable read, it is also an exercise book for the thinking homoeopath. Many clues lie buried below the surface, mimicking the hidden nature of our cases. The reader's challenge is to uncover and synthesise this information. This effort should pay dividends in all aspects of homeopathy, from case solving to a deeper perception of materia medica and philosophy. In this new edition Jeremy includes a commentary with solutions to many of the riddles. This can be read first as a guide or left to contemplate after the tantalising end!

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.

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.

Synergy Synopsis - Sankaran

Synergy Synopsis - Sankaran

CA$34.00

Synergy denotes the coming together of two or more things to create an effect that is much greater than their sum.

In Homoeopathic practice, using different approaches in tandem produces the best results. The utilization of traditional Homoeopathic tools such as Materia Medica and the Repertory (left-brain approach) in combination with modern homeopathic approaches such as Sensation  and Kingdom understanding (right-brain concepts)  generate  the most success.

This idea, termed Synergy, has evolved over the last three decades and has come  to a very  effective position. It is also a comprehensive and inclusive way, and uses all possible approaches together. This also gives a flexibility in case-taking   and analysis. This is a system that can be taught, practised and replicated successfully.

This  small book,  updated  with  the  latest  developments, is intended to be a ready  reference guide for participants who attend seminars and for others who wish to have an overview  of this system of practice.

Studies of Homeopathic Remedies – Douglas Gibson

Studies of Homeopathic Remedies – Douglas Gibson

CA$50.00

Homeopathic remedies come from every part of the world and from all the kingdoms of nature – mineral, vegetable, animal and microbe. They include strong poisons such as arsenic, the venom of deadly snakes and the products of disease, as well as harmless substances like sand and charcoal, and herbs whose healing properties have been handed down through generations and are celebrated in history and legend.
Dr. Douglas Gibson (1888-1977) was a distinguished homeopath who recognized the importance of knowing the materia medica in depth. These studies of remedies, first published in the British Homoeopathic Journal over that period 1963-1977, combine the panorama of each remedy with a faithful description of the mental and physical symptoms it elicits from a sensitive prover. The whole remedy is indeed used to treat the whole patient.
His studies are edited here for publication in book form. They differ from any previously published materia medica in the uniquely wide range of insights that are brought to bear on each remedy. They will be of great practical value, and a source of pleasure and stimulation, to the homeopathic clinician.
Dr. Gibson studied medicine at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, subsequently taking the Edinburgh FRCS. After many years as a medical missionary in China he came to study homeopathy at the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital, where he became first a Member and then a Fellow of the Faculty of Homoeopathy. Dr Marianne Harling and Dr Brian Kaplan are practising homoeopathic doctors.

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.

Spiders - Suspended Between Earth and Sky - Peter Fraser

Spiders - Suspended Between Earth and Sky - Peter Fraser

CA$18.00

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.
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
“This book is remarkably informative, not only in the description of the different Insect remedies but more importantly in delineating how the traits of the insects are expressed in human pathology. The information is practical and brings alive the Insect remedies in a way that is exciting and inspiring.” – Janet Snowdon

Spider and Scorpion Remedies in Homeopathy - Jonathan Hardy

Spider and Scorpion Remedies in Homeopathy - Jonathan Hardy

CA$62.00

Often mistrusted, sometimes loathed, these creeping, crawling creatures are among the most distinctive Animal remedies in the homeopathic materia medica. Exploiting his zoological background and extensive clinical experience, Jonathan Hardy offers a vivid and enticing portrait of the Arachnid Group and its members, for both adults and children.

General themes, extracted from provings, case and repertories, are presented for the Arachnids overall, and there are clear differentiations for Spiders and Scorpions old and new. Typical physical pathology includes neurobehavioural  and eating disorders, chronic fatigue and extremity symptoms. 

These main strands are skilfully interwoven with information on miasms and specific biological features, offering choice morsels for individual remedies. We learn, for example, that size and self-confidence are central issues for the passive species Aranea diadema, whose much smaller male risks being eaten during mating.  Aranea ixobola has the greatest anxiety regarding family members, and may suffer from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis; while concerns over safety loom particularly large for Tegenaria atrica.

The analysis is supported throughout by colour photos and nearly twenty case histories, completing  a fine web of interconnected material and shedding valuable light on this corner of the Animal Kingdom.
