"one of our most valuable books; everyone needs one."  - Joe Lillard, Washington Homeopathic Products

"We owe Jay Yasgur a debt of gratitude for a useful job well done.

"...very useful...I am glad to have it"  - Harris L. Couter, Ph.D.

"Jay Yasgur's DICTIONARY is the Dorland of our homeopathic collection. It is invaluable to our students who often have difficulties with the meaning of the old-fashioned medical terms used in the older homeopathic literature."  - Friedhelm Kirchfeld, Librarian, National College of Naturopathic Medicine

Wonderful Plants - Scholten

Wonderful Plants - Scholten

CA$170.00

After many years of intensive research, Jan Scholten’s long-awaited book on the taxonomy of plants, Wonderful Plants, is now available in English. Jan Scholten’s previous works on the systematic classification of the elements of the periodic table as homeopathic remedies was the greatest breakthrough of the last ten years in homeopathy. His discoveries have been confirmed in thousands of successful cases. Yet, the main thrust of Jan Scholten’s research is not the Mineral but the Plant kingdom. This can easily be seen in the thoroughness and precision of the information offered in his monumental new work.

The same natural laws that can be seen in the series and stages of the periodic table also underlie the taxonomic system of the enormously varied plant families. The path to the required remedy is not as easy to recognize as with the mineral elements – indeed, it is still evolving! One of the timeless values of this work lies in the essences of the plant families.

See also Sense Provings - a companion book to Wonderful Plants - it presents the results of about 200 provings

„To present us the complete pictures of specific plants, families and orders in such a logic and detailed taxonomic system, fitting the problems of our time, is therefore truly a ‘Work’. A more complete and living Materia Medica of the Plant kingdom has never been created before and it could well be The Book of the future of homeopathy.“

Whole Again - The Homeopathic Way of Healing, 13 Amazing Stories – Christa Gebhardt & Jurgen Hansel

CA$25.00

This book gives a beautiful introduction and depicts the entire scope of modern homeopathy. It recounts 13 exciting and touching life stories of patients who all share something in common: they were healed by homeopathy of sever, often “incurable” diseases and experienced what this wonderful approach to medicine can bring about – to become “whole again”.
The authors – a sensitive homeopathic physician and his wife, a journalist, with astonishing skill – selected these cases from world-renowned homeopaths such as Rajan Sankaran and Jan Scholten and verifies them independently.
We become acquainted with the Indian executive, who was partially paralyzed byt a herniated disc and was soon able to walk again after a dose of his remedy; or Maria, who was born with a severe handicap but improved dramatically and performed well in school with the help of homeopathy; or a woman from the Netherlands, whose remedy helped her to feel her body again after 30 years of numbness resulting from a severe burn accident.
Yes, sometimes the entire lives of these patients have dramatically changed through homeopathic treatment. The stories are so lively and moving, that one will never forget them. What remains is a feeling that nothing is impossible. This is a book that induces hope.
“One of the most beautiful – maybe the most beautiful book about homeopathy.” – Journal Natur Medizin

Vaccine Free - Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Contagious Diseases with Homeopathy (Second edition) - Kate Birch

Vaccine Free - Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Contagious Diseases with Homeopathy (Second edition) - Kate Birch

CA$51.00

A practical handbook for the homeopathic treatment and prevention of infectious disease. Kate Birch, a mother of two, saw her son fall ill with asthma after being vaccinated. Following the successful homeopathic treatment of her son, she decided to become a homeopath herself and to find alternatives to vaccination.
In this book she provides a clear introduction to the basic principles of homeopathy as well as a comprehensive overview of the known infectious illnesses and their pathogens, the usual vaccinations and treatments, together with the possibilities of homeopathic prophylaxis and therapy. This includes – along with the well-known childhood diseases such as chicken pox, measles, rubella, and scarlet fever – the common infectious diseases such as otitis media, influenza, mononucleosis, and pneumonia, as well as infections such as rabies, tetanus, diphtheria, and tuberculosis. There is also a comprehensive section on sexually transmitted diseases, including herpes, gonorrhoea, syphilis, AIDS, and hepatitis. Tropical diseases such as yellow fever, dengue fever, malaria, and typhoid fever are covered in detail. An extensive section deals with the various forms of homeopathic treatment of fever, and there is also a chapter on the adverse effects of vaccination and their treatment.
It is the first manual of its kind, which not only draws attention to the potential ill effects of vaccinations, but also describes the alternatives in a thorough and easily understandable way. A truly all-inclusive book on a highly topical issue.
Not too many details here but not bare bones either, Kate Birch has found the almost perfect presentation of the necessary information. I really appreciated the practical usefulness of the information provided. We all meet concerned parents who hesitate a lot about what to do about vaccines; this book will give correct and concentrated information. I strongly recommend it to each and every practitioner. – Dr. J. Rozencwajg, Homeopathic Links

Vaccine Damaged Children - Treatment, Prevention, Reasons (revised edition) - Isaac Golden

Vaccine Damaged Children - Treatment, Prevention, Reasons (revised edition) - Isaac Golden

CA$41.00

Dr Isaac Golden has been working with Homoeoprophylaxis – or homeopathic vaccination – since 1985. As a result he receives many referrals to treat children and adults suspected of being vaccine damaged. 

This book gives an insight into his work through case studies, as well as statistical analyses of the data collected from these case studies.
It is a book to give parents of vaccine damaged children hope – they can see the journey of other parents and how many times the appropriate identification of the true case of their child’s chronic health problems, and the needed treatment, can change all their lives for the better.
Children are often trapped in a “diagnosis” – they are labelled as autistic, ADHD, developmentally delayed and so on. Then they are pushing into treatment boxed, special schools, and medication to change presenting symptoms without ever curing the cause. Too often the labels are simply misleading – for example, many children diagnosed as autistic are simply vaccine damaged. When this is recognized, and the cause treated, the symptoms change and the diagnosis is changed.
The extent to which the explosion in chronic disease in all “developed” countries has been caused by vaccines is unknown. The question is avoided by orthodox scientists, but cannot be ignored by parents of damaged children.
This book aims to shed some light into a darker place, and show that we all have an amazing God-given capacity to heal. All that is needed is that this self healing is given a chance to work.

Using Provings in Homeopathy - Peter Fraser

CA$15.00

Comments about other titles in the series:
“Here is a beautiful book written by an author who lives and breathes the subject – this knowledge permeates the writing making it a useful work-book for the committed student.” – Misha Norland
“Peter has quite brilliantly drawn together the threads of the higher realms of human experience and brought them down to earth to be of immense practical use in our everyday practice.” – Janet Snowdon
The proving is a vital part of homeopathy. It is the process by which remedies are discovered, explored and added to the materia medica. Without provings we would not have any information on non toxic substances and only the crudest picture of toxic ones.
Understanding how a proving works and how to read a proving gives us a much clearer picture of what we know about a remedy and how we know it. We can make a clearer judgement of how accurate and how comprehensive is the information found in the materia medica and so understand accurately how well it matches the picture of our patient’s disease.

“Peter has quite brilliantly drawn together the threads of the higher realms of human experience and brought them down to earth to be of immense practical use in our everyday practice.” – Janet Snowdon
Homeopathy has always recognized that a disease is a physical manifestation of a central, but intangible disturbance of the Vital Force. Only by understanding the relationship between symptoms and the disturbance can we understand the disease. Mystic ideas such as Cabbala and Swedenborgianism can be used to better understand the correspondence between a disease and its symptoms.

Understanding Posology in Classical Homeopathy - Farokh Master

Understanding Posology in Classical Homeopathy - Farokh Master

CA$16.00

Over the past few years there has been tremendous progress in the field of homoeopathy with the discovery of new remedies and new miasms including new methods of posology, but somewhere down the line, the art of Hahnemannian classical homoeopathy has been left behind.

We have moved miles away from the teachings of Hahnemann (very reliable) to the teachings of modern teachers (in flux). Easy access to modern books has made students and doctors feel that studying Hahnemann, his Organon and The Chronic Diseases is superfluous.

Therefore I firmly believe that this booklet is intended to facilitate and not eliminate the process of understanding posology in classical homoeopathy.

When I started teaching the subject of posology in my seminars, I found the great need of a book which students can read and understand this topic: it would be of immense value. This is the result! — Dr Farokh Master


Tongue That Does Not Lie - Prakash Vakil

Tongue That Does Not Lie - Prakash Vakil

CA$24.00

Prakash Vakil was a homeopathic pioneer with an exceptionally open mind who used many uncommon symptoms for finding the right homeopathic remedy. In this book, he describes in detail and with numerus colour pictures how the tongue can be used for finding the similimum.

In different schools of medicine, the tongue is used as a tool of diagnosis. The tongue is not only a mirror of the stomach but it reflects the patient as a whole.

For more than 20 years, Prakash Vakil studied tongue symptoms in his daily practice. He combined clinically confirmed symptoms with his own findings. This reliable and original work is the outcome of these studies. Apart from his observations and cases, it includes an extensive tonuge repertory which forms the main part of this book. 

Tongue symptoms are a valuable contribution to homeopathic prescribing. They are interesting and at the same time objective symptoms which in many cases have helped in finding the similimum. 

A useful guide which sharpens clinical observation skills and greatly contributes to a successful everyday homeopathic practice.

The Trituration Handbook - Into the heart of homeopathy – Anneke Hogeland & Judy Schriebman

The Trituration Handbook - Into the heart of homeopathy – Anneke Hogeland & Judy Schriebman

CA$39.00

Excerpt from foreword: This is an important book. It is important not so much for the information it contains but rather for the direction it indicates: the direction home, home towards a knowledge which is ours, yet has been forgotten.
There are many aspects to this direction home. It cannot be said that one aspect is more important than another. Together they form a whole. This whole may be expressed under the heading of “the integration of knowledge and direct experience.”
The emphasis here is on direct experience. It is one thing to receive knowledge from the outside and to become experienced in the use or manipulation of this information, such as the ability to quote from various texts, to know who said what and when. It is quite another to enter into an exploration of this knowledge in such a way that it becomes part of oneself, a part of one’s own direct experience. Only then it can be said that the truth of this knowledge has been established within oneself.
Excerpt from Author’s Notes: My second proving was with Jonathan Shore. This was a trituration proving, in which a group of ten, armed with mortars and pestles, ground and scraped an unknown substance for an entire afternoon and evening at a kitchen table. We took notes and filmed the conversations that took place that night and again two weeks later when we gathered to go over our experiences and dreams during the intervening time. We then learned that we had triturated a pelican feather. Here I also had a profound experience, as did the other provers, from the trituration process alone.  During that two week period, we had all been exposed to the events of September 11, 2001 with the destruction of the Twin Towers in New York City. Surprisingly, no one in the group was caught up in the emotional turmoil and subsequent political machinations that marked that event. Once, again the higher perspective came into play and showed us a different way to be; a different path on which to travel.
These experiences conviced me of the value of provings. It is also very clear to me that both “styles” of proving are both equally valid. Each process creates symptoms, each brings about deep changes in some of the participants, and each results in the development of remedy pictures and rubrics which become incorporated into the materia medica. And each produces remedies that are  being used successfully in practice.
Now, several year later, I can further reasonably assert that the birds, especially the high flying ones, are natural conduits to what we call in homeopathy is being called C4 homeopathy. The C4 realm is  the higher perspective: timeless and beyond polarity. And as birds are the traditional representatives or messengers between heaven and earth, it is perhaps not surprising that they embody this realm so well.

The Synergy In Homoeopathy - An Integrated Approach to Case Taking and Analysis - Rajan Sankaran

The Synergy In Homoeopathy - An Integrated Approach to Case Taking and Analysis - Rajan Sankaran

CA$70.00

Foreword by Dr. Jürgen Hansel  

 

Traditional Classical Homoeopathy, with symptoms, rubrics and keynotes has stood the test of time. Introduction of newer, more contemporary ideas of kingdom, levels, miasms and sensation have brought Homoeopathy into a new paradigm. Never before has the connection between the patient and the remedy source been as clear.

 

These contemporary ideas have become very popular and have led to many successful cases. However, enamoured by success with this method, a whole new generation have started using it as a shortcut, and have sometimes neglected traditional knowledge. The profession became split, with conventional and contemporary homoeopathy sharply divided.

 

The originator of the Sensation Method, Dr. Rajan Sankaran, has always maintained that symptoms and system are two sides of same coin and that success results from an integrated approach. It is like using both the left and right sides of the brain; both the factual and conceptual aspects of the patient and remedy have to be seen together.

 

The knowledge and understanding found in old masters like C. M. Boger is now explained in detail in this book. Through illustrative cases, Rajan Sankaran demonstrates the secret of success with the integrated approach. Through a seamless blending of the old and new, the symptom and system, conventional and contemporary, the results are proof of a quantum leap in homoeopathic practice.

The Substance of Homoeopathy (5th edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2005

CA$80.00

In his earlier work "The Spirit of Homoeopathy" Rajan Sankaran delved deep into homoeopathic philosophy and introduced many original ideas of great value to the practitioner. That book, while generating some controversy, was very well received by the profession and-has won much acclaim. Starting where the "Spirit" left off, this much awaited book rekindles the flame of homoeopathy - the spirit flows into the substance.
In the "Spirit", Rajan presented his concept of disease as delusion. Here, he shows how delusions can be classified using Hahnemann's theory of miasms. With numerous illustrative cases, he shows how this classification can be used as a map of disease to facilitate remedy selection. Next, a detailed study of homoeopathic drugs with reference to their source reveals the purpose of the traditional classification into plant, animal and mineral kingdoms.
The results of a detailed study of the periodic table are presented which show the relation between chemistry and homoeopathy, underlining the scientific basis of homoeopathy. The mineral remedies are studied in detail and with cases, call forth vivid images to mind. A number of recent drug provings conducted by Rajan in his seminars all over the world are included, which give a new insight into these drugs. After a study of some plant and animal remedies, there follows a differential analysis of drugs from the various kingdoms - this study will prove a landmark in the homoeopathic field. Finally, many original ideas on homoeopathic philosophy are expounded, chief among these being his thoughts on how and why organic pathology develops.
Rajan has drawn from his vast clinical experience to give us many original and thought-provoking ideas. Lucid though succinct, and copiously illustrated with cases, the book will be of interest to all serious students of the healing art.
“This book is a gem, for the experienced homoeopath as well as for the beginner. For the student it offers a glimpse into the wider range of possibilities Homeopathy has to offer after the basic skills have been learnt; for the experienced it may be a welcome stimulus to expand their own framework and find new challenges to learn, experiment and grow.”  - Dr. Beat Spring (Review in Homeopathic Links 2/94)

A set of 2 CDs of Healing Music comes along with this book.

PREFACE
The want of an authoritative treatise on the Study of Materia Medica and Case Taking from the Hahnemannian standpoint has been keenly felt, more especially by the students and the, members of the dominant school who are now taking a growing interest in the field of Homoepathy.
In this little brochure we present two essays on the subject by Dr. C. M. Boger, whose knowledge of homoepathic science, deep study and comprehension of its philosophy and materia medica, and rare acumen as a successful prescriber, have established him as an authority of great eminence. Accordingly, we have no hesitation in commending its perusal and study to the reader as the valuable information it contains will be found both interesting and instructive.
We wish to acknowledge our indebtedness to Mrs. Boger for the courtesy in sending us the essays and permitting their publication.
