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.

Homeopathy through the Chinese Looking Glass - Homeosiniatry Revisited - Joe Rozencwajg

Homeopathy through the Chinese Looking Glass - Homeosiniatry Revisited - Joe Rozencwajg

CA$33.00

Mental, emotional and spiritual issues are not the easiest problems to reveal. We depend on what the patients tell us or what we can sense or suspect through body language and use of specific words during the consultation.
The body does not lie. If one can read it, it will tell what state it is in and what remedy, or at least what type of remedy it needs. There are windows of perception into the deepest mental situations even when the physical appearance seems to deny it: the bronzed athlete or the beautiful, lascivious woman can be depressed, anxious or schizophrenic. They will just hide it better than the common human.
The diagnostic methods of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be used by homeopaths, especially in situations relating to very intimate problems that might be very difficult if not impossible for the patient to relate to the practitioner. Those methods allow pinpointing a group of remedies or a precise remedy without the need for the patient to perform a disturbing “psychological strip-tease”.
This method has been, in my experience, the key to opening cases, unlocking suppressed and repressed memories, feelings and symptoms, allowing a faster and deeper analysis and eventually a correct prescription.

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

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.

The Homeopathic Physician’s Guide to Lactation – Patricia Hatherly

The Homeopathic Physician’s Guide to Lactation – Patricia Hatherly

CA$32.00

Patricia Hatherly, who enjoys the unique perspective of being a Homoeopath as well as a Lactation Consultant, has worked extensively with mothers and babies for 30 years.
During this time she has amassed a wealth of clinical experience in dealing with all manner of clinical issues relating to breasts and lactation.
It is her desire, in the writing of this book, to share some of this knowledge with her colleagues and she attempts to bring some up-to-date perspectives to a subject which, in homeopathic literature, tends to be perceived from an archaic and, occasionally, a somewhat erroneous perspective.
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.

Butterflies - An innovative guide to the use of butterfly remedies in homeopathy – Patricia Le Roux

Butterflies - An innovative guide to the use of butterfly remedies in homeopathy – Patricia Le Roux

CA$32.00

The well-known French paediatrician Patricia Le Roux ventures in this book to the virtually unknown territory of butterfly remedies in homeopathy. She has found these remedies particularly useful among hyperactive (ADHD) children who are lively, agitated, restless and mercurial. In these “butterfly children”, there is often a strong feeling of being abandoned, especially by their father or mother, which is experienced as a loss of imposed authority and safe boundaries.
Butterfly remedies also have a common theme of metamorphosis – the desire to dress up. They enjoy masks and are confused about their own identity. The author has found these remedies very effective too in various skin problems, such as urticaria or eczema.
The book contains provings, cases and concise essences of 13 butterfly and moth remedies: The California Sister, The Tailed Jay, The Lilac Beauty, The Processional Caterpillar, The Brown Tail Moth, The Brimstone, The Death’s Head Hawkmoth, The Blue Morpho, The European Peacock, The Marsh Fritillary, The Cabbage White, The Small Tortoiseshell and The Fox Moth.  These different remedies are clearly differentiated and vividly described, paving the way for exciting new prescribing possibilities.
“A wonderful small book by one of our best homeopathic explporers. I learned a lot – and now see people who need butterflies everywhere! Highly recommended.” – David Kent Warkentin
“Patricia Le Roux has again produced a very fine book. The pictures of the butterflies are very lively and portray the essence.” – Jan Scholten

Homeopathic Psychology - Personality Profiles of the Major Constitutional Remedies -  Phillip Bailey, 1995

Homeopathic Psychology - Personality Profiles of the Major Constitutional Remedies - Phillip Bailey, 1995

CA$31.50

The most common personality types recognized by homeopathic practitioners are brought to life in this new book by an insightful physician and homeopath. These thirty-five typologies are described in light of common behaviours, primary emotional tendencies, internal conflicts, and spiritual issues that each of them face. This book is essential for serious students and practitioners of homeopathic medicine, and it will be of use as well to homeopathic patients or anyone interested in typology research.
Understanding these archetypal personalities enables us to better know ourselves, our family, and the people with whom we interact day-to-day.


“Dr. Philip Bailey’s penetrating discussion of thirty-five different remedies carries the stamp of clinical authority and scholarship. His introductory chapter provides a number of clinical pearls with regard to history-taking. The book offers a unique elemental analysis of constitutional types showing how homeopathy and other medicinal systems may one day be linked. Homeopathic Psychology is an important addition to the dialogue between homeopathy and psychiatry.” –Jonathan Davidson, M.D., Associate Professor, Department of Psychiatry, Duke University School of Medicine


“This book gives insight into the basic nature of many important remedies. It is well-written and accurate. I recommend it to all serious students of homeopathy.” – Roger Morrison, M.D., co-founder of the Hahnemann College of Homeopathy and author of Desktop Guide to Keynotes and Confirmatory Symptoms

“Homeopathic Psychology furthers our understanding of the psychology of the major homeopathic remedies. Dr. Bailey explains well our existing knowledge of the remedies and broadens our understanding of them, providing numerous highly original observations. His descriptions of the psychogenesis and psychodynamics of the remedies is engrossing. Homeopathic Psychology is a pleasure to read and has enhanced my familiarity with the materia medica.” – George Guess, M.D., DHt, Editor, Journal of the American Institute of Homeopathy

Boenninghausen's Repertory-C.M. Boger

Boenninghausen's Repertory-C.M. Boger

CA$31.00

The publisher:

Dr. Boger was the best disciple of Dr. Boenninghausen & he proved this by making one of the greatest text on Homeopathic literature i.e. Boger's Boenninghausen Characteristics & Repertory.

All those who criticized Boenninghausen's work for no differentiation between general and particular modalities, got an answer for it in this repertory. The plan of this book was based on "Repertory of the Antipsorics", which has modalities for each part given at end of concerned section of repertory as well as a section devoted to general modalities at end of book. 

This edition has the advantage over all others for being most accurate of them all. It has been checked by Dr. DP. Rastogi & Dr. V.D. Sharma, who have corrected more than 100 errors in the abbreviations of name of drugs used in the repertory.

In this edition, both Characteristics (Materia Medica) and Repertory have been combined and the size which was originally cumbersome to handle has been made handy to use.

Dr. C.M. Boger, graduated from the Philadelphia College of Medicine. During his long career in medical practice and research, Dr. Boger contributed important scientific textbooks including the Synoptic Key of the Materia Medica in addition to his authorship of a number of articles for medical journals.

His authorship of several scientific textbooks, his analysis and construction of a Repertory, his lively translation of several medical books and his indefatigable labor for the production of original works, like The Times of the Remedies and Moon Phases' and his provings of'Samarskite' made him universally recognized as an author and physician of great eminence.

Some Cactaceae in Homeopathic Medicine - Massimo Mangialavori

Some Cactaceae in Homeopathic Medicine - Massimo Mangialavori

CA$30.00

Absolute Self sufficient: Cactus grandiflorus, Cereus bonplandii, Cereus serpentinus, Opuntia alba spina, Opuntia vulgaris, Agave americana and more. Notes from the 2005 - 11th Summer Seminar in Alghero

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

Structuralism and The Plant Kingdom - Volume 1: Monocots - Stephanie Nile

Structuralism and The Plant Kingdom - Volume 1: Monocots - Stephanie Nile

CA$30.00

Clear and scientific classification of homeopathic plant remedies based upon the angiosperm phylogeny group III system.
The book catalogues and compares trends which pervade the Botanical  hierarchy of families, orders are entire clades and places them into stage tables which are based of the previous work of Dr. Scholten (stages) and Dr. Sankaran (miasms).
In this book I unearth aspects of Psychology which can enrich the stage concept with various perspectives and methods, such cluster analysis which have the potential to provide a more quantitative evaluation. This means that the stage concept can be applied to any remedy or case.
Another challenge, implicit in any Botanical study of Materia Medica is to integrate any causal relationships between the evolution of botanical function of each of these groups and the symptoms they produce into the remedy pictures.

My dear Stephanie, In the name of all Homeopaths thanks so much for your excellent work, which for sure, is going to help the whole Homeopathic community.  - Jose Mirilli, author of the Thematic Repertory

Frequent Encouters - Disposition Series 1, Introverts and Extroverts - Prafull Vijayakar, 2009

CA$30.00

 Excerpt from Preface:  This is the first time I am making an attempt to write what I may call as “working of my mind when I am prescribing for a patient”. What is my actual thought process when a patient comes and sits in front of me is what I am trying to convey through this book of “FREQUENT ENCOUNTERS”.


‘Frequent Encounters’ refers to the different types of personalities and dispositions that we come across in our day to day practice. Everyday a doctor comes across a number of patients; some are angry, some are sad and melancholic, some are talkative, some haughty, some timid, some are clever and some are foolish or idiotic. These are a few of the different personality traits that we frequently encounter. This book is the first of a series that will represent such different encounters that have helped me understand a patient well and come to a right simillimum.

Homeopathy for Today's World - Discovering Your Animal, Mineral, or Plant Nature - Dr Rajan Sankaran, 2011

Homeopathy for Today's World - Discovering Your Animal, Mineral, or Plant Nature - Dr Rajan Sankaran, 2011

CA$30.00

"Dr. Sankaran's approach is the greatest single advance in homeopathic medicinal practice in the past century."   The American Journal of Homeopathic Medicine

 

The Sensation Method of diagnosis developed by Dr. Rajan Sankaran is the most important development in homeopathy since its discovery in the late 18th century by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann. The Sensation Method explains that our experience and perceptions of life's stresses are shaped by an inner pattern, or "song," connected to one of the three kingdoms in nature - animal, plant or mineral. Revealing itself has a constant underlying sensation felt in both the mind and the body and expressed through illness and chronic ailments, this inner song of reoccurring reactive patterns - be it that of competitive lion, a sensitive daisy, or structured phosphorus - drives our emotions, dreams, ambitions, careers, and relationships and is the underlying factor behind why stress affects each of us so differently.

 

Explaining that there are 7 levels to our experiences, Dr. Sankaran reveals how a trained homeopath can decode the words and gestures we use to describe our pain, emotions, and health conditions, allowing us to probe more deeply into our experiences of stress and illness to determine what animal, plant, or mineral is "singing" within us.  

 

Showing how this core identity can be used by homeopathic physicians to treat our problems at their source, he reveals how becoming aware of our inner song can reduce the intensity of its negative effects, leading to less stress, better health, and more harmony in our lives.

 

Dr. Rajan Sankaran is an internationally renowned homeopath who has been in practice since 1981. The creator of the Sensation Method of homeopathy, he gives lectures and seminars throughout the world. The author of several books, including The Spirit of Homeopathy, The Substance of Homeopathy, and The Sensation in Homeopathy, he lives in Mumbai, India.

Birds - Seeking The Freedom of the Sky - Peter Fraser

Birds - Seeking The Freedom of the Sky - Peter Fraser

CA$30.00

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

In Search of the Later Hahnemann - Rima Handley, 1997

In Search of the Later Hahnemann - Rima Handley, 1997

CA$30.00

This book is the story of Samuel Hahnemann's practice of homeopathy in Paris during the last years of his life. It is based on his actual casebooks, which up until now have been left substantially unexamined in a German library.

It was to Paris that Hahnemann had moved with his young second wife, Melanie, and here that he completed the second edition of his Chronic Diseases and the final revision of his major theoretical work, the Organon. We see him putting into practice the implications of his thikning on chronic disease, experiementing with some of the new remedies being developed by himself and others, and pushing his conception of the infinitesimal dose to undreamed-of lengths in the LM potency.

The whole range of his Paris patients appear in these pages. Some of the cases are quoted at length - there are successful cures, but we also see him making mistakes, improvising, getting stuck and lost in his cases, yet always trusting in the principles he had himself formulated. We see him as a whole person and witness the process of the learning and making of homeopathy.

Rima Handley taught medieval literature at the universities of London and Newcastle for several years. She subsequently trained and now practices both as a homeopath and a psychotherapist. She was the co-founder of the Northern College of Homeopathic Medicine in Newcastle.

The conclusion of a journey is not the end; it is merely the beginning of the next one.
The choice of the potency of a homeopathic remedy has always been a subject of controversy.
While looking for a natural law that could direct this choice, I stumbled upon the Fibonacci series that is present everywhere in the universe.
By using those potencies in the correct order with the correct timing, a faster, deeper and more complete resolution of problems and cure of pathologies has been constantly obtained.
The theoretical basis for using this system is presented here, followed by practical applications based in a series of real cases.
Answers to many other questions that have plagued the homeopathic community are also answered, as a beneficial side-effect of this new system of prescription.
