The Advanced Guide for Professional Homeopaths completes the trio of valuable reference books for the professional homeopath. Building on previous works, Hahnemann Revisited and Achieving and Maintaining the Simillimum, this book will help homeopaths overcome challenging obstacles to their own difficult cases. The topics of potency selection and miasms are revisited to make them more practical for the homeopathic practice, suggesting a golden middle way, a path about results instead of passions. New topics are also presented: 11 questions the practitioner must ask him or herself in order to find the simillimum with maximum confidence. The epidemic of “special needs children” that we are witnessing at this time is addressed with a chapter focusing on the intrauterine experience. Herings observations are amplified with additions, either from the practice or from other modalities such as psychology and Traditional Chinese Medicine. And this book builds the bridge to the next book: Beyond Jung: Delusions, Dreams, and Homeopathy. Beyond Jung explains the most interesting and advanced method to find the simillimum by using Carl Jung’s definition of a core delusion, plus the patient’s etiology and their compensations.
