Wonderful Plants - Scholten

Wonderful Plants - Scholten

CA$200.00

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.

„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.“


The New World Veterinary Repertory - Richard Pitcairn & Wendy Jensen

The New World Veterinary Repertory - Richard Pitcairn & Wendy Jensen

CA$200.00

A modern homeopathic repertory adapted for animal patients, based on Boger-Boenninghausen's Repertory, with valuable additions from Kent and many others.

The very first repertory designed exclusively for veterinary use. Of the more than 110 repertories published over the last two centuries*, this is the first that has been carefully constructed to be of special application to veterinary practice. Until now, veterinarians practicing the homeopathy of Hahnemann have used the repertories designed for human beings – Kent's, Boenninghausen's Therapeutic Pocketbook, Boger edition of Boenninghausen's repertory, The Synthetic Repertory, etc. These are excellent repertories for human use but can be a challenge to veterinarians for two reasons.
1. They contain large amounts of information, such as sensations, types of pains, and specific locations, that only humans can communicate.
2. Some of the most common non-human conditions are either minimally presented or completely absent from existing repertories.

Veterinarians Richard Pitcairn and Wendy Jensen, together with over 55 years' experience in exclusively homeopathic practices, bring their knowledge of animal conditions and the correspondingly most applicable rubrics to this unparalleled reference work. The Boenninghausen repertory, edited by Boger, was the foundation for the work because of its emphasis on physical conditions and its skillful use of modalities and concomitants that are so necessary in veterinary work. After editing out the non-applicable material, rubrics especially helpful in animal cases were added or enlarged – primarily from Kent's repertory, but also from other sources including Jahr, Boger, Allen, Hering and Boericke. Extensive cross references were also added to make the discovery of the most similar rubric much easier than ever before.

This work, the first of its type, will greatly enhance every homeopathic veterinarian's satisfaction and success in practice.

"I have been using the New World Repertory on a daily basis. Modeled after the Boenninghausen repertory, the NWR is similarly focused on physical symptoms, with the addition of rubrics specific to animal problems. Initially I thought it would just be applicable to my animal patients but have found it to be more concise and less bulky then many repertories, making it my first choice when initially repertorizing a case, be it animal or human. This repertory is a must for anyone who treats animals with homeopathy!" 
Julie Matthews, DVM,CVA,CVH , York Maine

"I refer to your new repertory daily in my busy practice, and it has become my default reference when solving cases. Thanks to Richard and Wendy for all the labor involved in producing this great and useful tool for us to apply in practice."

Dr Todd Cooney DVM, CVH , Certified Veterinary Homeopath, Kokomo 

"The NWVR has been invaluable in my homeopathic veterinary casework for both acute and chronic prescribing. This repertory is tailored for veterinary use by including applicable descriptive rubrics for symptoms we'd most likely see in our animal patients. Another helpful tool are the extensive cross references and inclusion of concomitants that can help refine an obscure symptom."

 Marybeth Minter, DVM , Sedona

 

How often is there something really new brought out? There is now! For the very first time there is a repertory that has been carefully edited specifically for veterinary use. Dr. Wendy Jensen and Dr. Richard Pitcairn, together with 55 years of practical experience using homeopathy exclusively in the treatment of animals, have made a reference work you must have on your shelf.


Using the Boger-Boenninghausen repertory as a foundation, because this repertory is the most applicable to animal work, careful editing and additions from Kent's repertory and other sources have honed a tool both practical and very effective to use in practice.
The repertory was constructed in several stages. The first step was to remove all rubrics which could not be applied to animal patients, such as those relating to sensations or inner mental activities such as dreams and delusions. Then useful rubrics were added from Kent, Jahr, Boger, and Schwartz's Wound Repertory. Oftentimes Kent contained similar rubrics but had many more remedies, so these were added to the rubrics in Boenninghausen. The next step was to change the language to reflect quadruped anatomy, such as replacing ankle with hock and wrist with carpus. Finally, the cross references, which suggest rubrics with similar meanings, were greatly expanded, so that the busy practitioner could at a glance find the rubric with the best fit for the patient at hand.

Carbon: Organic and Hydrocarbon Remedies in Homeopathy - Roger Morrison, 2006

Carbon: Organic and Hydrocarbon Remedies in Homeopathy - Roger Morrison, 2006

CA$220.00

CARBON IS THE FOUNDATION OF ALL LIFE. It is the most prolific element, found in more molecules than all of the other elements combined. An entire subdivision of the field of chemistry, organic chemistry is devoted solely to the study of Carbon. Fur-thermore, some of our oldest and best-proved homeopathic remedies are Carbon-based. There are nearly 200 of these remedies found in the homeopathic pharmacopeia. And, de-spite the overwhelming importance of this element, homeopaths have less understanding of Carbon remedies than any of the other common elements.

Dr. Roger Morrison, with his extensive chemistry background, has spent five years re-searching all aspects of the Carbon remedies. This book is the fruit of that labor.

The first section of this book explores the nature of the Carbon remedies showing the underlying mental, general and physical characteristics that are common to all patients requiring these remedies. Through studying this section, the prescriber will become readily able to identify patients who require a Carbon remedy.

Next, the book provides an in-depth materia medica to all of the nearly 200 Carbon remedies currently in the homeopathic pharmacopeia, including knowledge from all existing homeopathic literature and exhaustive toxicological data. The author has culled this data from a broad spectrum of toxicology reference works as well as dozens of governmental and international websites. Included in the materia medica is the author's synthesis and unique understanding of each remedy. Finally, representative cured cases are provided when available, taken from the author's cases and from many modern and past homeopaths. Thus, this materia medica is the most thorough exposition of the Carbon remedies available in the world.

The final sections of the book provide insights regarding the various sub-categories of organic compounds. The purpose of this section is to give the prescriber mechanisms and strategies for differentiating between the many existing Carbon remedies. By careful analysis of provings and cured cases, this section makes it possible to differentiate between the various organic chemical categories. Great effort has been made so that prescribers may understand these categories even without any knowledge of organic chemistry whatsoever.

In short, this book is aimed in every way toward making this previously mysterious and seriously under-prescribed group of remedies accessible and usable in daily practice.

Structure - Experiences with the Mineral Kingdom, Volume 1 & 2 (2 book set) (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2009

CA$240.00

Homeopathy has evolved from a symptom-based to a systemic approach where each remedy is seen as a  part of a group to which it belongs in nature, rather than as an individual entity. Each patient is guided to explore his innermost experience, or Sensation, where he speaks the language of nature. In order to recognize what language he is speaking, it becomes necessary to know the features of each kingdom and subkingdom in nature. For this purpose it becomes imperative to create a body of work that looks at the Materia Medica from a systematic point of view.
After elaborating on his kingdom idea and the Sensation level, Dr. Rajan Sankaran has been consolidating these with a look into each kingdom. This work is the second of a trilogy on the various kingdoms, the first being ‘An Insight Into Plants’ and the third being ‘Survival’ (on the animal kingdom).

In the case of the Mineral Kingdom, the periodic table readily lends itself to the task of classification. Its seven row and 18 columns can be understood, seen and experienced as stages of human development. Such an understanding leads us to prescribe new remedies with accuracy. Dr. Rajan Sankaran’s recent explorations into the rows, backed by several clinical cases, provings and research, have thrown new light on the Mineral kingdom that makes it significantly easier to recognize the remedies in practice.

Synthesis - Repertorium Homeopathicum Syntheticum (Edition 9.1) - ed Frederik Schroyens, 2004

Synthesis - Repertorium Homeopathicum Syntheticum (Edition 9.1) - ed Frederik Schroyens, 2004

CA$270.00

Excerpt from Foreword by Jeremy Sherr: Last year I had the privilege of visiting Dr. Frederik Schroyens in his offices in Ghent, Belgium. It was a hive of activity. A constant stream of information poured in - additions, corrections, provings, translations, revisited classics and new manuscripts. Frederik explained the pyramid structure of the organization, how homeopaths from all over the world gathered information, later passing it on to smaller teams who checked and rechecked it until it arrived at the Ghent office where the final sifting, confirming, corroborating, editing, and publishing were performed. I was very impressed. From my own experience of repertorizing, I have learnt to appreciate the enormous time and work that goes into each rubric, remedy, cross reference and annotation. It is the work of ants and a labor of love.

But i was not only the industriousness that impressed me. It was the dedication to detail and accuracy that filled me with a renewed confidence in the repertory. The repertory is our daily tool; it is our right arm, the gateway to materia medica and to healing. On this tool the health of our patients depends, and we must be able to rely on it in the way a carpenter relies on his plane, a soldier on his sword, a baker on his oven, a writer on her pen. It must be sharp and accurate, all-encompassing but not over-inflated. I found the Synthesis to be all these things, and the tool felt right in my hand.

An Insight Into Plants Volume I & II (2 book set) (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2007

An Insight Into Plants Volume I & II (2 book set) (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2007

CA$275.00

This is the latest book by the author of “The Spirit of Homoeopathy”, “The Substance of Homoeopathy” and “The System of Homoeopathy”. The earlier books proved to be milestones in Homeopathy introducing the ideas of delusions, miasms and kingdoms. In this book Dr. Sankaran provides a framework of how the plant kingdom can be classified and understood.

He traces the common sensation of each family and shows how this sensation can be seen in the remedies in that family. The remedies are differentiated by the miasm to which they belong.

Thus a grid of plant remedies is created that looks like the periodic table of the elements. Illustrated with over a hundred successfully treated cases and several provings, this book opens up the plant kingdom as never before.

Dr. Sankaran also introduces his new approach to case taking which emphasizes the importance of going beyond body and mind to what he terms the vital sensation. He explains how a thorough understanding of the chief complaint itself leads to this deeper level and acts as the pivot around which the case revolves.

Used in conjunction with the understanding of the plant families, this new approach has shown remarkable results in practice.

“Rajan Sankaran has added a new and vital discovery to homoeopathy. After his important steps about the basic delusion and situational materia medica in his book  “The Spirit of Homoeopathy” this new discovery is a major break through.”  - Jan Scholten in his Foreword
