To make the book user frienly we have refurnished it. The positive changes we made are as follows:
-A new font has been used which is bigger in size and is a pleasure to read.

-Lastly but ver importantly a word indes of 18 pages has been addes at the end of the book which makes it very easy to find the required portion of the text.

Orchids in Homeopathy - Louis Klein

Orchids in Homeopathy - Louis Klein

CA$80.00

Orchids are one of the largest and most fascinating plant families in the world. In spite of that, they have been poorly represented in homeopathy.

Renowned homeopath Louis Klein has produced a comprehensive and trail-blazing guide to this compelling plant family. He initiated ‘The Orchid Project’ to encourage study, sowing seeds which have grown into the extensive provings, materia medica and clinical data offered here.

The material combines a wealth of background information, analysis and intuitive insights to identify key themes for the Orchidaceae family. These include a conflict between spirituality and materialism with a strong sexuality and search for perfectionism.

They have proven to be powerful remedies in children with ADHD, dyslexia, speech difficulties and other learning disorders. Orchid remedies are increasingly needed in the “new child” that is overly adapted to technology and affected by it, leading to disorders of the autism-spectrum and Asperger’s. There are physical affinities for sexual organs, feet and body orifices, with prominent neurological symptoms, as well as fungal infections and allergies. 

Detailed, nuanced portraits are offered for over thirty individual Orchid remedies like Vanilla planifolia and Cypripedium pubescens as well as many new remedies. Their lesser-known ‘dark side’ is fully explored, along with a host of other new perspectives, such as relationships to Fungal and Animal groups.

Louis Klein has the rare ability to transform the knowledge of provings into clear essences, thus helping homeopaths include this important remedy group in their daily prescriptions.

"Louis Klein's "Orchids in Homeopathy" is the result of his extensive research into this fascinating family of plants; these plants have long been the prized objects of voracious collectors in many cultures. Via historical data and a series of provings, he has found that these remedies relate to a conflict between spirituality and materialism, with a strong sexuality and a search for perfection. His cases reveal the usefulness of these remedies in those with learning difficulties such as ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, Asperger's and dyslexia, areas where we homeopaths often struggle to find matching remedies. There is also a strong affinity with the sexual organs, neurological complaints, fungal infections and allergies.With its well-defined descriptions and accurate analyses, the link between theory and practice is made clear and applicable."  Deborah Collins

"Lou Klein's gifts of clear elucidation and clinical insights shine through in his new book, "Orchids in Homeopathy".  Fascinating are themes of sensuality and joy juxtaposed with darker themes such as war and death brought out by the orchids' relationship with fungi.  Insights into contemporary miasmatic families and periodic stages consolidate an archetypal understanding of the orchid remedies.  This groundbreaking book presents over thirty-five colorful and concise remedy pictures as well as six Hahnemannian proving" Kellie Kirkpatrick  Lic.Ac, HMC


"Lou Klein has created a wonderful summary of the themes seen in orchid remedies and related that to how and where they grow. The more detailed materia medica information on individual remedies will be a great resource and if you add to this the beautiful presentation of the book, the entire volume feels like a great gift to the homeopathic community.  Thank you for all the work" Judith Mapleson HMC

New Directions in Homeopathy Research - Advice from and interdisciplinary conference - Claudia Witt and Henning Albrecht (eds), 2009

CA$36.00

In 1808, Samuel Hahnemann, the founder of Homeopathy, began to call the law of similars a “law of nature” - a provocative and controversial statement. 200 years later, homeopathy is still as controversial as it was then. It has, therefore, become necessary to define homeopathy’s “state of the art” and especially the state of research on homeopathy.
The editors initiated a process based on an interdisciplinary approach. The main objectives were to identify problems in the different fields of homeopathy research and to develop recommendations for future research.
The discussion and decision process was based on input from experts with considerable experience in homeopathy representing five different research disciplines: history of homeopathy, case studies, pathogenic trials, clinical research and basic research.
This book summarizes the decision and consensus process by providing [1] an overview of the current state of research on homeopathy and [2] the results.

Neon  by Jeremy Sherr

Neon by Jeremy Sherr

CA$55.00

Neon is the second book in the Noble Gas series by Jeremy Sherr. Continuing the journey that began with Helium (Saltire Books, 2013), Jeremy leads the reader further down the periodic spiral. Using the detailed symptoms of his Neon proving as a base, Jeremy draws on biology, geometry, astronomy, physics, metaphysics, analogy, poetry, movie, myth and the Bible to explore the deeper aspects of Neon and the second period. He continues the profound and revolutionary line of inquiry from the Helium book, delving into Neon’s revelations about the universe, the evolution of the soul and the development of our selves. Beginning with the study of the element and its physical affinities, the book takes us through the symptom generalities, emotional essence, geometrical structure, spatial dimensions and spiritual aspects of Neon, and its relationship to the origins of Psora. Jeremy’s clinical experience, as well as cases collected from other practitioners, illustrates the practical application of Neon.

Monera - Kingdom Bacteria and Viruses: Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 1 - Frans Vermeulen, 2005

Monera - Kingdom Bacteria and Viruses: Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 1 - Frans Vermeulen, 2005

CA$114.00

Excerpt from Introduction: Bacterial benefits. Monera are bacteria. They play a major role in homeopathy. They have no place as a group and their symtpms pitcures are often obscure. The current trent of facilitating the selection of remedies on the basis of their place in the natural kingdoms, not only ignores the fungi as a distinct unit, but also the micro-organisms. There are some 80 bacteria listed in the remedy abbreviation list. SOme of them are symptomless, whereas a few others have thousands of symtoms.
Bacterial remedies fall into three categories: allopathic drugs synthesized from bacterial metabolites; normal commensal of the microbial flora; species associated with bacterial diseases. The latter category contains the major nosodes: Medorrhinum, Syphilinum, and Tuberculinum. Psorinum can be included or excluded, depending on one’s view. [See Penicillium, Spectrum Vol. 2].
A step forward in realizing the importance of micro-organisms night be the recent introduction of new “miasms” in addition to the traditional quartet. However, these new miasms mainly serve as categorization models and hardly pay attention to the micro-organisms associated with them.

"Nancy and Roger's book will be of great help in understanding and using miasms in practise. Beautifully written an illustrated through cases, it is such a gift to community.
(Dr. Rajan Sankaran)

Roger and Nancy’s new book sheds a clear light on the confusing and enigmatic subject of miasma, which are now an integral part of the sensation approach. It contains rich and detailed descriptions of the themes and characteristics of each miasm, with helpful differentiations of the often-subtle distinctions. As Roger and Nancy’ books, this is one of those reference books that you always want to have on your desk.

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

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

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.

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.

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."

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.

Lectures on Materia Medica (5th Edition) – Caroll Dunham

“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”.

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.
