Keynotes and Red Line Symptoms of Materia Medica – Adolph Von Lippe

Keynotes and Red Line Symptoms of Materia Medica – Adolph Von Lippe

CA$20.00

We all know that reading and memorizing the Materia Medica is a must for homeopathic practice but how often we are able to do that, not always!
So as to make Materia Medica simple and easily referable Lippe here presents a compiled book on keynotes of homeopathic drugs. Infact, these are the symptoms we need to be abreast with to have successful prescription and hence successful results. The author also puts beyond the red line, the chains of more symptoms leading to correct diagnoses, in a particular characteristic combination.
There is also a mention of the modalities and relationship to make our study more complete and easy to analyse.
Adolphe Lippe (1812-1888) was a one of the first graduates of homeopathy in America. Lippe taught alongside Constantine Hering at the Hahnemann Medical College in Philadelphia and wrote several very influential books which are still standard textbooks today for modern homeopaths. Lippe also translated many important homeopathic texts, thus enriching American homeopathy. Lippe was a founding member of the International Hahnemannian Association and he was a colleague of James Tyler Kent, Henry Newell Guernesy, Carroll Dunham and many other famous homeopaths. His pioneering contributions will always be remembered.

Philip Bailey uses his wealth of clinical experience working with Lac remedies to flesh out fully rounded pictures of 8 milk remedies. Each chapter is based on personal experience using the remedy, and includes many original observations.

The publisher:

Philip Bailey uses his wealth of clinical experience working with Lac remedies to flesh out fully rounded pictures of 8 milk remedies. Each chapter is based on personal experience using the remedy, and includes many original observations. With the help of this knowledge, homeopaths can deepen their understanding of Lac remedies beyond rubrics and stereotypes, to the complexities of real people. The breadth of Bailey’s clinical descriptions is matched by their depth. The essence of each remedy picture is fully explored in the book, and studied from numerous angles. The result is the kind of rich and nuanced materia medica that is easy to relate to, and easy to apply in clinical practice. Each chapter is accompanied by case histories, expressed in the actual words of the patients, enabling a thorough examination of how each remedy’s themes and essence are expressed verbally.

Bailey paints a rich psychological picture of the main themes in Lac cases, from early dynamics of inadequate bonding to mother, through victim-consciousness to compensatory spiritual idealism, whilst emphasising the split in every Lac case between the worldly and the spiritual, and the ambivalence which results from this split. 


The book is fully indexed.

Some of the most valuable insights into various homeopathic medicines come from their use in actual practice. In ‘Lac Remedies in Practice’ Philip Bailey generously shares his clinical experience with remedies made from milk and how they can help patients who have suffered their entire lives due to lack of appropriate bonding with the mother.

Lectures on Clinical Materia Medica in Family Order (4th Edition, Revised and Enlarged) - Ernest Albert Farrington

CA$21.00

Homoeopathic literature in a vast treasure which is filled with all kinds of gem-stones and crystals. Though all of these are valuable and precious, some are very popular these days while others have been forgotten by most of us.
Lectures on Clinical Materia Medica (with gist of each lecture) by E.A. Farrington, M.D. is a sincere effort towards the revamping of the old book. Clinical Materia Medica by Farrington is a gem which many popular Homoeopaths use and employ daily to become great Homoeopaths (but like typical Homoeopaths they will not tell others).

Though it is a very nicely written book, it is not as popular as Kent’s Lectures on Materia Medica. In fact unlike Kent's book there are no repetitions and it is very lucid as compared to lectures by Kent.

This new book will be a boon to every aspiring as well as experienced homoeopath who desires to deliver best to the suffering humanity. No tempering has been done with the lectures. Gist has been added as a value-added feature.

James Tyler Kent, MD (Born in Woodhull, New York, 1849) proved many new remedies. He advocated the use of potencies made on the centesimal scale. Dr. Kent introduced the doctrine of ‘Series in Degrees’ in the treatment o chronic diseases, ‘Theory of Octaves’ and ‘Law of Vital Action and Reaction’. He laid importance on mind symptoms in treating chronic cases. He taught Materia Medica at the Homeopathic Medical College of St. Louis from 1881-88, at the School of Homeopathy, Philadelphia from 1890-99, at Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital, Chicago from 1903-09. His repertory which was published in 1897 remains the most sought after book in homeopathy till date. He died on 6th June 1916 but his contributions to the field of homeopathy are immortal.
Dr Harsh Nigam after doing MBBS and MD (Physiology) could not suppress the heritage of homeopathy that he received from his scholarly Homeopath father, Dr Jagdish Chandra Nigam. He obtained his membership of faculty o the British Homeopathic Association from the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital. He has been practicing homeopathy since 1993 not as a banal homeopath but with outlook which combines psyche and physical cure, as laid down by Dr Hahnemann.

Lectures on Materia Medica - James Tyler Kent,

CA$22.00

Kent's lectures on the homeopathic materia medica are legendary. We can sense how this master of homeopathy captured the more than 200 remedies in this book as living creatures in his mind's eye: the resulting remedy pictures are of unequalled clarity and acuity. This was a breakthrough in the depiction of remedies, which had to that point only been described as lists of symptoms. 
As a teacher, Kent possessed an unmatched ability to express clinical matters in everyday language. This rare combination of science, art and straightforward descriptions comprises the inimitable charm of his lectures. His pupils were so enthusiastic that they took verbatim notes of his talks. Kent then edited these transcripts himself. This is how this masterpiece of the materia medica came to be handed down to us, and we can confidently say that it has lost none of its authenticity over the years.

The publisher:
Kent, like Hahnemann, was endowed with a keen analytical intellect coupled with a highly artistic temperament. His genius could see unity in diversity, an order and light in an apparent confusion of jumbled up symptoms. He was a strange mixture of an artist and a scientist. It is with a stroke of his rich imagination that he conceived a novel idea of presenting the drugs of our materia medica as individual pictures. 
In his lectures he was able to present well-defined but colourful pictures of each drug. This was a very bold and a great step forward in the development of our materia medica. Kent gave his lectures in a colloquial, semi-clinical form with the result that anybody who listened to his lectures was spell-bound and carried an indelible impression of the drug. He was able to create a continuity of a symptom-picture from all the disjointed symptoms listed in the other standerd books.

“Several Editions” speak more conveniently in praise of a book than any words reviewer or publisher could utter. Dr. Carol Dunham, after graduating himself from the Columbia College, New York, made the acquaintance of Dr. Constantine Hering, one of the greatest physicians ever born, who became too helpful to him as well as generous and genial friend. In the meantime he continued his study under Dr. Boenninghausen with a desire to know everything within the enclosure of the school of Homeopathy. Subsequently he gratified himself with Doctorate from College of Physicians and Surgeons of New York.
But did he stop there? No. He wanted to drink the cup of knowledge up to its last drop. He began to study under many of the Greatest Physicians and Specialists of Europe for years.
Dr. Dunham delivered his knowledge in his book “Lectures on Materia Medica,” and immortal part of Homeopathic literature, an indispensable library aid to the practicing Homeopathic practitioners.
The lectures contained in these volumes were delivered by Dr. Dunham while he occupied the chair of Materia Medica in the New York Homeopathic Medical College.
They have been edited from his note-books, practically verbatim, and are the ripe fruit of his thought and experience, - in his own latest words, “too valuable to be lost”.

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

CA$32.00

“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.

Lisa and the Mystery of the Little White Globules- Wichmann

CA$18.00

What exactly is homoeopathy and how does it work? 
Patients of all ages, who have experienced help through this healing method, would like to have these questions answered. – There are many volumes of literature available to the grown ups among them to find information and form their own opinion.
Yet it is difficult to find any material on homoeopathy suitable for children. This book, specifically written for children of primary school age, tries to do this with the help of a little story. This booklet contains many vivid pictures and can either be read to the children, or by the children themselves. 
It answers the most important questions about homoeopathy in an understandable and appropriate way.


"The story is light in tone, but covers many areas, showing that homeopathy can work on animals as easily as on humans. In a disarmingly simple sentence the homeopathic globules are likened to “little memory cards in a computer. They store what healing properties there are in a plant. And our body is able to read it.” This is Lisa’s insight. She later goes on to unravel the mystery of how the remedies are made, and starts her own research project, with Fiona."

Melissa is the author of The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party and Women Ripening Through Menopause. She is also the creator of The Greek Tree Essences. She has been in homeopathic practice for twenty-five years, and has been teaching for twenty. Melissa’s focus has been on women’s health and her passion for homeopathy shines through her work.
This latest book has been years in its conception, pulling together strands to weave into the story of the Matridonal Remedies, part of the Humanum Family: Lac Humanum, Folliculinum, Placental Humana (Welsh), Vernix Caseosa, Amniota Humana, Umbilicus Humanus. Melissa says: As I have worked with these important remedies over the years, I have come to believe that the most profound gift we as humans receive is the sense of self. It is first bestowed in its earthly form in the womb. Could it not therefore be true that when this sense of self is lost, it can be retrieved through the very materials that gave it to us in the first place? These substances are made for the creation of our humanness. It is their sole purpose, as they are discarded as soon as we no longer need them.

Menno-Nightcaps by S.L. Klassen

CA$26.00

A satirical cocktail book featuring seventy-seven cocktail recipes accompanied by arcane trivia on Mennonite history, faith, and cultural practices. At last, you think, a book of cocktails that pairs punny drinks with Mennonite history! Yes, cocktail enthusiast and author of the popular Drunken Mennonite blog Sherri Klassen is here to bring some Low German love to your bar cart. Drinks like Brandy Anabaptist, Migratarita, Thrift Store Sour, and Pimm’s Cape Dress are served up with arcane trivia on Mennonite history, faith, and cultural practices. Arranged by theme, the book opens with drinks inspired by the Anabaptists of sixteenth-century Europe (Bloody Martyr, anyone?), before moving on to religious beliefs and practices (a little like going to a bar after class in Seminary, but without actually going to class). The third chapter toasts the Mennonite history of migration (Old Piña Colony), and the fourth is all about the trappings of Mennonite cultural identity (Singalong Sling). With seventy-seven recipes, ripping satire, comical illustrations, a cocktails-to-mocktails chapter for the teetotallers, and instructions on scaling up for barn-raisings and funerals, it’s just the thing for the Mennonite, Menno-adjacent, or merely Menno-curious home mixologist.

Metals in Homeopathy – Patricia Le Roux

Metals in Homeopathy – Patricia Le Roux

CA$40.00

Core essences and paediatric cases for all the elements of the Iron, Silver and Gold series. The theory of elements is becoming increasingly popular in homeopathy. Patricia Le Roux, an experienced paediatrician from Marseille, demonstrates for the first time the use of this theory in the treatment of children.
The popular author describes with uncompromising clarity and simplicity all the remedies of the Iron, Silver and Gold series. She presents each remedy with an impressive case history, followed by an essence for each, as well as the remedy’s key symptoms.
The case descriptions range from infections, eczema, asthma, glomerulonephritis, rheumatoid arthritis and anaemia, all the way through to learning difficulties, developmental delays, depression and anorexia.
The book’s simple, almost abstract style convincingly conveys a sense that the author ‘lives’ these remedies and one sees how she prescribes with ease and accuracy. After reading this book, one is left eager to apply the methods in one’s own practice. The book really is “worth its weight in gold.”
“Patricia Le Roux is very good at looking for and finding the essence, in her patients and in the remedies. She has a great talent for incorporating the new theories in homeopathy and elaborating on them. And she has a great talent for successfully applying those theories to her patients.
Add to that her ability to write down her experiences in a precise and clear way and you will be convinced that this book is well worth having.” – Jan Scholten

Miasms and Nosodes - Origins of Disease – Louis Klein

Miasms and Nosodes - Origins of Disease – Louis Klein

CA$80.00

Louis Klein is one of the leading homeopaths worldwide. His latest book on miasms and nosodes is a ground-breaking pioneer work in the field of homeopathy.
On the basis of his broad clinical experience, Louis Klein attributes many known remedies to miasmatic states. A miasmatic state becomes the core idea around which similar remedies are grouped. For example the Tetanus miasm comprises not only Tetanus nosode, but also remedies like Hypericum, Angustura, Helodrilus, Tellurium. It is clinically linked also with titanic syndromes, spasms or even convulsions. This new classification of miasmatic remedies is highly practical and opens a new chapter in homeopathy, demystifying and redefining the existing miasms, while adding several important new ones. It also introduces new remedies like Johneinum and Helodrilus, which he has proved extensively. So Louis Klein’s work on miasms and nosodes is indeed a homeopathic milestone.
In this first volume Louis Klein presents in-depth information on Burkholderiales including the Pertussis miasm; Clostridiales including the Tetanus miasm; Corynebacteria including the Diptheria miasm; Mycobacteria including the Tubercular and Leprosy miasms, plus the newly proven remedy Johneinum, linked to the Crohn’s disease miasm; Enterobacteriales including the Bach Bowel Nosodes, the Typhoid and Yersinia miasms; and Parasitic Protozoa and Parasitic miasms including the Malarial and Toxoplasmosis miasms.
All this practical information is illustrated throughout with excellent case examples from two decades of homeopathic practice, which speak for themselves. This book is in a class of its own. As Rajan Sankaran is known for plant remedies and Jan Scholten for the periodic table, Louis Klein will be known for miasms and nosodes.
“Nosodes have the aspect of being vague, not precisely defined. Lou Klein has the capacity to work with this vagueness very effectively. He knows how to extract the essence of the remedy from provings, from natural history and especially from patients. He is able to make the vague more exact. This book is the first to do this successfully in homeopathy. I see this book as a must for every homeopath.” – Jan Scholten
