Gunpowder as a War Remedy - J H Clarke, 2003 Reprint

CA$1.50

J.H. Clarke is not unfamiliar in the Homeopathic world. He has rendered immense service to mankind by following the fundamental principles laid down by the MASTER in ‘ORGANON’. The two rare works “RADIUM as an internal remedy’ (especially exemplified in cases of SKIN DISEASES and CANCER) and ‘GUNPOWDER AS A WAR REMEDY’ speak itself on the “Law of Similarity” ie. Radium and Gunpowder which have the capacity to kill human beings can equally kill the ills of human beings provided these are used under the ‘Law of Similarity’. Such works benefit the students, beginners and old practitioners.

The Study of Materia Medica and Taking the Case - Boger

CA$2.50

The third edition of this compilation featuring four essays by Boger, including Observations on Prescribing and Grading of Symptoms.

 

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.

Sandy Silicea - Farokh J Master

CA$3.00

Excerpt from Text: Outside homeopathy, flint as an internal remedy is practically unknown. It is hard and insoluble and therefore medicinally inert in is original form. However, as is the case with Lycopodium, Aurum (gold), Argentum (silver), Plumbum (lead), Mercury and others, Hahnemann was able to convert these substances into therapeutically useful medicines by the process of trituration.
Silicea is one of the twelve bio-chemic tissue salts introduced by Dr. Schussler. It is a grand illustration of the efficacy of potentization.

Bed Wetting - Farokh Master, 2002

CA$3.00

A condensed book on the topic of bed wetting, with remedies in tabulated form and the addition of a small repertory.

PREFACE
The childhood shows the man, as morning shows the day.
Milton : Paradise Regained
In preparing the manuscript of this work, I have followed the lines laid out by the American College of Psychiatry for the treatment of enuresis.
I was tempted to write this book after I saw in my practice that out of every ten children who came to my clinic atleast two of them were suffering from bed-wetting.
This problem till to date was very poorly understood by me therefore I decided to read (books referred are mentioned in Bibliography) and then to save time of the busy practitioner I have put the matter in a condensed form. For easy reference of remedy I have described the remedy in tabulated form, aided by a small repertory.
I have been aided in seeing this edition through the press by the efficient help of Dr. (Miss) Archana C Maniar and Dr. Nimesh P. Sukhla. They have lightened the labour of making the manuscript more acceptable to the profession and I desire to express my hearty appreciation of this kind and helpful service.
Bed-wetting being one of the commonest problems as I found in my clinics (2 out of every 10 children had come across in my practice), I was forced to take up a detailed study and interest in this subject as not only this complaint formed an embarrassing situation for the tiny tots but I found it to bear a deep traumatic psychological influence on these subjects especially when the younger one was in a position to acheive a control over his or her bladder earlier than the older one.
This problem till date was very poorly understood by me, I had therefore decided to undertake journey through the much untrodden and equally unrevealed aspects of this problem. I humbly put before this profession my hectic days of the tour which I had undertaken to reach my destination. I have put the matter in much condensed form that would help those busy in this profession.

Fundamentals of Homeopathy - Valuable Hints for Practice - T P Chatterjee, 1993, 4th Edition, Reprint 1999

CA$3.00

Homeopathy, as an art and science for mitigating human suffering at low cost, is fast expanding it field not only by producing more capable homeopaths but also by drawing practitioners of modern medicine into its fold. The homeopathic treatment is now being generally recognized as a branch of effective medical treatment like other systems of medicine. Recent researches in Genetics and Molecular Biology have lent support to the immeasurable potentiality of Homeopathy as a system of effective therapy, the world over.


In this book of quite moderate size, the author (a veteran homeopathic practitioner of Delhi) has creditably presented the essentials of the knowledge in almost all the different aspects of Homeopathy, indispensably required for starting practice in this sole curative art and science of Medicine, rather than remaining satiated with the bazaar books on Homeopathic Therapeutics and Materia Medica.

The Bowel Nosodes - John Paterson, 2003

The Bowel Nosodes - John Paterson, 2003

CA$3.50

Excerpt from Introduction: The name of one of your illustrious countrymen, Louis Pasteur, will forever be remembered as the founder of the science of bacteriology. It was he who first isolated and identified a specific germ and related it to a definite clinical entity (disease). Following up on his discoveries, medical science concentrated on the laboratory technique for the isolation and identification of a specific germ for each known disease, and the Koch postulates were accepted as the standard for declaring any germ capable of pathogenesis - of having power to cause disease. The motto of the medical profession is still Tolle Causam, find the cause, and today there are many who consider that germs are the only cause of disease and are working to discover the specific germ or virus for well know clinical entities.
It must now be accepted as scientific fact that, specific germs, in many cases of disease, can be isolated and identified, but is it a true conclusion that the specific germ is always the cause of disease? The subject is too great to be dealt with in all its aspects in this short session, but a little time must be given to considering the general question, namely the role of the Bacterium in Nature because one’s opinion on this must determine the value one places on the use of bacterial products - vaccines or nosodes - in the treatment of disease. As the subject of this paper deals with the intestinal flora, I propose to limit my remarks to consideration of the role played by the B. coli and coliform organisms found in the intestinal tract.

Students Guide to Materia Medica - Renu Bandlish

Students Guide to Materia Medica - Renu Bandlish

CA$4.50

I have great pleasure in writing a foreword to this ‘Guide’ to students by one of my ablest students, Dr. Renu Bandlish. I have always believed and thought that class-room lectures are necessary to impress upon the minds of the students, the essentials of a drug and to stimulate them to study various books on materia medica. But for appearing in the examination, they require something that would enable them to quickly revise. And thus there is a place for this type of ‘Guide’ to students. I am sure for this purpose the students will find this quite useful. – Dr. D. P Rastogi, Principal, Nehru Homeopathic Medical College and Hospital

This book is written in Question-Answer form and questions appeared in different examinations have been combined under each drug. So it will be easier for students to study different types of questions relating to that particular drug and to reproduce it in the examination. I am sure this book will be beneficial even during the practice of Homeopathy.

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.

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.

Essence of Materia Medica (Second Edition) - George Vithoulkas, 2010

CA$12.00

‘George Vithoulkas and his work needs no introduction or recommendation. Yet, this is  book which we would like to recommend to every homeopath. In the ‘Essence of Materia Medica’, he has painted the essence of 51 remedies. While reading every remedy, a clear portrait of the patient with minute details comes out in front of you. He has given a description of the type of person most commonly affected by a remedy at the start of most remedy portraits for example, the Kalium carbonicum patient with a strong sense of duty heightened to and inflexible, rigid degree. In every medicine Vithoulkas has described  a common theme/thread going at all three levels of the patient, for example in Alumina, the theme of delayed action and slowness is visible at all three levels. Many medicines are compared with other closely related medicines having similar symptoms. The comparison of the essence of various related medicines helps a lot in choosing a correct remedy. This book is reflective of the vast clinical experience and knowledge of the author. With this book, he has carried the efforts of Kent in creating the remedy portraits to the next level. He has himself acknowledged that he has drawn a lot from the Kent’s Materia Medica and Repertory. He has been able to show the development of remedy pictures in a very evolutionary manner, which helps in creating a better understanding of the medicines presented in this work. THe book is well compiled and the presentation of the material is very lucid and systematic.  - Dr Medini Daterao & Dr Manish Bhatia

George Vithoulkas was born in 1932 and lives on the island of Alonissos, Greece. He was an Engineer by profession and was introduced to homeopathy accidentally when he got hold of a book on pharmacy. It was in 1960 in South Africa that he began his homeopathic studies and these were then continued in India. He studied homeopathy exclusively and then got into practice and later also started teaching. Since 1967, he has been teaching classical homeopathy. In 1994, he opened the now world-famous International Academy for Classical Homeopathy in the Greek island of Alonissos. He was awarded the Alternative Nobel Prize in 1996. George has written books for both the layperson and the homeopathic practitioner. George’s clear presentation and penetrating studies are a landmark in the world of homeopathy.

The work of a homeopathic student while studying and applying materia medica is one to constantly compare and differentiate. He must compare the pathogenesis of a remedy with the recorded anamnesis of the patient; he must differentiate the apparently similar symptoms of two or more medicinal agents in order to select the simillimum. To enable the student or practitioner to so this correctly the student must have proper knowledge of the individuality of the remedy; something that is peculiar, uncommon, or sufficiently characteristic in the polychrest remedy that may be used as a pivotal point of comparison. This pivotal point may be a 'keynote', a 'characteristic', or the 'red strand of rope'. This excellent work by Dr. H.C. Allen helps the reader to grasp the PQRS symptoms in no time.
