The Sensation in Homoeopathy (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2009

The Sensation in Homoeopathy (Second Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 2009

CA$120.00

This much awaited book describes, using numerous case examples, the concept and use of Rajan Sankaran’s latest, and perhaps most significant contribution, ‘The Seven Levels of Experience’ which enables a homeopath to know at all times, in any given case, where to begin and where to aim. In this way of working, a definitive pathway for case taking is provided, a means by which to observe and utilize the active energy patterns of the patient (hand gestures and body movements), plus a way of matching the patient's level to the remedy potency that is required.
Another key component of this system has to do with becoming attuned to the patient's sensations. There is a certain energy in precise sensation(s) having to do with both the chief complaint and the general state of the patient, which has enormous significance. Dr. Sankaran has termed these as the vital sensations. Vital sensations are not merely physical symptoms or emotions, but rather the common sensations that connect the mind and the body. Indeed the vital level is deeper than the mind or the body; it is at the center point of the diseased state. These are non human specific phenomena i.e. not exclusive to the domain of only human beings and thus take us directly to the source of the remedy itself.
Dr. Sankaran's system incorporates miasm and kingdom classification (plant, animal, mineral, nosode etc.) as well as the 'Levels' into one comprehensive, sophisticated, yet elegantly simple way of perceiving the patient. It is a quantum leap in the understanding of disease and has resulted in remarkably increased level of success and the use of numerous remedies, including some not well proved ones and yet others previously not even known. In many other cases one has been able to use old remedies in an entirely new light, with a deeper understanding.

Secret Lanthanides - Jan Scholten, 2009

Secret Lanthanides - Jan Scholten, 2009

CA$120.00

Secret Lanthanides describes the use of the Lanthanides and their salts in health and disease. It describes persons in a Lanthanide state and the cure with homeopathic potencies.

The Lanthanides are elements of the periodic system with atom number 57 till 73. They have strong electro-magnetic and light properties.

Autonomy is a major theme, hence the subtitle “Road to Independence”. The search for freedom can lead to a spiritual development and desire for self-control. The Lanthanides are needed for leading ones own life, going ones’ own way. It’s the road to individuality and individuation.

The psychological separation is physically reflected in the immune system and auto-immune diseases. The immune system separates own tissue from foreign substances, is has to find out what “own”.

“It is indeed a pleasure and honor to write this foreword to Jan Scholten’s latest work, “The Secret Lanthanides”. I am sure that like his earlier works, this one too will be very useful to the profession. The smile on the face of a successfully treated case is the main reward for such work.”   - Rajan Sankaran

“Jan Scholten’s discovery of the Lanthanides as homeopathic remedies has given us even more tools to cure profound pathology. After hearing his initial lectures on the Lanthanides and, subsequently prescribing some of them, I am delighted by the curative results.”   - Louis Klein

The Sensation in Homeopathy - Sankaran

The Sensation in Homeopathy - Sankaran

CA$120.00

This work by Rajan Sankaran contains an introductory section with a summary of his previous discoveries: natural kingdoms, miasms, basic delusion and situational materia medica. The most important innovation is described in the second section, starting from the main complaint of the patient: the discovery of the “vital sensation”, which Sankaran is convinced can be found at all levels of a case (dreams, bodily sensations, emotions, and so on), and which expresses itself directly (for example, in the hand gestures). He gives seven levels of perception that can help us to orientate ourselves within a case. He elucidates this new kind of case analysis step by step, using numerous case studies. This book is a further milestone on the way to a more profound understanding of homeopathy and the mode of action of the life force.

Building on Jan Scholten's work and on the subsequent development of the Sensation Method, Joshi's book examines the themes and patterns of the first three rows of the periodic table and identifies their equivalence in the known themes and patterns of the remedy pictures of the elements. Solidly resting on her observations in clinical practice, this book is a great resource for practitioners wanting to hone their differentiation skills.

The Spirit of Homoeopathy (Third Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 1999

The Spirit of Homoeopathy (Third Edition) - Rajan Sankaran, 1999

CA$115.00

“For a long time there has been little original writing concerning the theory and practice of Homoeopathy...In Rajan Sankaran’s new book we have something refreshing and interesting, bursting with the ideas of this fabulous Bombay clinician...

The book is divided into four sections: Philosophy, The Mind, Case Taking and Finding the Remedy, and Materia Medica. A number of major themes can be traced throughout the book which is basically an expanded version of lecture notes from the last five years. These unfold as the author tells the story of how his ideas developed, starting with the insight that ‘potentized remedies have dynamic effects only’, and ending with examples of his Situational Materia Medica...

Sankaran is a master detective and, with a great knowledge of the Repertory, he uses the much neglected sections on delusions and dreams in new and imaginative ways, taking a remark of the patient or an observation and translating it into repertory language with great skill. The book is an inspiration for us to ‘free up’ in our use of the Repertory and to consider the meaning behind our patients’ remarks...

In his situational Materia Medica Sankaran puts into imaginative nutshells the basic delusions or unsuitable postures of a number of homeopathic medicines...

There are other ideas in the 44 chapters of Sankaran’s book. I have not mentioned his discussion of compensated and uncompensated symptoms, his use of dreams, his technique of case-taking, or the idea of polarities within a homeopathic medicine. Nor all of these ideas are new, but putting them together into his own framework Sankaran often makes them more memorable and more relevant.”  -British Homeopathic Journal

Fungi - Kingdom Fungi Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 2 - Frans Vermeulen, 2007

Fungi - Kingdom Fungi Spectrum Materia Medica Volume 2 - Frans Vermeulen, 2007

CA$114.00

Excerpt from Introduction: Fungi and Fungal Diseases. Interesting in fungi is mushrooming. Increasingly explored by mycologists, medical scientists, gourmets, folklorists, thrill-seeking adventurers, and mind-expansionists alike, this often-overlooked group of organisms provides us with food, drink, valuable medicines, industrial chemicals, recreational drugs, and unsurpassed marvels of nature. Some even take care of our radioactive waste. The role of fungi in evolutionary processes is now better understood and their value as recyclers and symbionts better appreciated Symbolically associated with plant roots, fungi distribute essential nutrients, there by transforming inhospitable environments into hospitable ones and enabling plants to settle and grow. Their role in evolution of Mother Earth is now believed to have been the guidance of water-inhabiting algae onto dry land.
The various repertories and homeopathic encyclopedias list 72 names of fungal remedies [fungal compounds included]. Of these, 32 fungi are represented in the abbreviation lists by nothing more than a name, i.e. there are no symptoms, whilst of the remaining 40 fungi 27 have less than twenty symptoms. It leaves us with 13 fungi we might possibly come across when repertorizing. Yet, even that number does not reflect the actual situation. Our understanding of the entire kingdom is based in essence on a total of three fungi: Agaricus, Bovista and Claviceps [Secale], with a few more having a place in the background: Psilocybe, Ustilago, Sticta, Polyporus officinalis, Candida ablicans, and the fungi compounds Alcoholus, Penicillinum. This well-known trio supplies the rudiments, the basics, the ABC of the homeopathic perception of the kingdom. One may safely assume that such a foundation is too narrow.

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.

Finding Your Way Through the Forest of Symptoms - Jansen

Finding Your Way Through the Forest of Symptoms - Jansen

CA$110.00

A patient’s case can seem like a forest of symptoms. There can be so much information, and we need to process it. We need to find ‘the way through the woods’! This book aims to do just that. Ton Jansen has worked tirelessly for over 30 years to achieve quick, gentle and lasting cures for his patients, and has the results that are evidence of the success of his method. He finds he needs to draw on a wide variety of remedies to get consistent results, and in this book he presents many of them in a clear and succinct way. He shows us how to use the homeopathic detox therapy (HDT) with our patients in the many cases where it’s necessary to remove what Hahnemann called ‘the obstacles to cure’, and also to find the truly indicated remedy to improve their condition at a deep level.

The Raven – A Flight through an Archetypal Force Field by David Lilley

The Raven – A Flight through an Archetypal Force Field by David Lilley

CA$104.00

Raven enjoys a wide variety of habitats from the far northern icepacks, to the shimmering dunes of the Sahara and the forbidding peaks of the Himalayas. It can imitate and mimic many different sounds, including the human voice. Solitary, raven looks like a crow – in flight like a buzzard – soars like an eagle – eats carrion like a vulture – strides and thinks like a human. Raven is totem to Allfather, the Norse god Odin; to the Greek gods Apollo, God of Healing, Athene, Goddess of Wisdom and Hekate Goddess of the Unconscious; to Shekinah, the Hebrew Goddess of the Hearth; and to the Morrigan, the Irish chooser of the slain. Raven is a trickster like Fox and a messenger like Wolf. To the Amerindians of the Pacific North Coast, Raven is demiurge; like Prometheus, a bringer of fire – the fire of the soaring intellect and the creative genius. Raven is an archetype of many aspects and many faces – it is a shapeshifter – an archetype for all seasons and of great shamanic power – a walker-between-worlds – commanding the divide between the conscious and unconscious minds – the interface where the conflict between expression and repression is waged in the human psyche. To have Raven Knowledge is an Irish proverb meaning – to see all and to know all – to observe, to perceive and to unravel matters beyond the comprehension of the ordinary mind. The Raven archetype will often be recognised in singularly gifted figures who bring ‘special gifts from the gods’ to humanity in the form of wisdom, knowledge, literature, art, music and creative craftmanship. As apex Avian archetype, Raven presides over all diasporas, as it did those of the Jewish and Irish tribes. In this new work, David Lilley traces the lives of two outstanding sons of these gifted peoples: Menachem Mendel Schneerson, the Rebbe, and Edgar Allan Poe, the Irish American genius of Gothic literature.

Hahnemann Revisited - A Textbook of Classical Homeopathy For the Professional – Luc De Schepper, 2001

Hahnemann Revisited - A Textbook of Classical Homeopathy For the Professional – Luc De Schepper, 2001

CA$100.00

By its sheer scope and detail, this text recommends itself as one of the best modern textbooks on the subject that is currently available. It is written with great clarity and might be seen to compromise a modern version of Kent’s Lectures, Close’s Lectures and Vithoulkas’ Science of Homeopathy all rolled into one…Indeed, if a student only purchased this book, a materia medica and a good repertory, it is hard to see how they could not soon become an excellent practitioner…It is definitive, authoritative and comprehensive in scope, content and detail. Whichever other general text one compares it with, this book comes out very favourably. I therefore recommend it most highly as an extremely valuable addition to the literature, for students and established practitioners…It seems certain that this book will quickly and easily establish itself as a popular general textbook on homeopathy. It seems destined to become a classic text in the field for many years to come. – Peter Morrell in Simillimum
A magnificent treatise in the foundations, healing process and chronic miasms of Homeopathy. Of special interest are the explanations of LM potencies, Homeopathy and its relationship to Traditional Chinese Medicine, cancer, bowel nosodes, delusions, and epidemic and intrauterine prescribing. Dr. De Schepper clearly demonstrated his exceptional knowledge of classical homeopathy and all of its major masters. – Richard Hiltner, M.D., D.Ht., President of the California State Homeopathic Medical Society and Editor of Western Homeopathic Journal
I whole-heartedly endorse this book for both students and teachers interested in learning about homeopathy. Written in a lively style and accentuated with interesting historical perspectives and pertinent case examples….numerous illustrations to help students visualize key concepts….thorough, comprehensible, and useful information…will be invaluable in my own teaching of homeopathy to pharmacy students. – June Riedlinger, R.Ph., Pharm.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Pharmacology, and Director, Center for Integrative Therapies in Pharmaceutical Care, Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences
Luc De Schepper is known to hundreds of students as a brilliant and inspiring lecturer and to thousands of patients as a gentle and compassionate healer. Soon after receiving his medical degree in his native Belgium in 1971, he began studying homeopathy as part of a PhD program in acupuncture. He also studied with Robin Murphy and with the British Institute of Homeopathy but learned the most spending years studying the Old Masters in thousands of old journals. Dr. Luc began incorporating classical homeopathy into his holistic practice upon moving to the US in 1981. Dr. Luc has used homeopathy exclusively since 1991 in his family practice, first in Red Bank, NJ and subsequently in San Diego, CA. He founded the Renaissance Institute of Classical Homeopathy in Boston, MA in 1996. Recently retired from practice, he now devotes his time to writing, teaching, and lecturing at the invitation of homeopathic physicians around the globe.

Alternation of Remedies In Homoeopathic Therapeutics- Tahir Malik Awan

Alternation of Remedies In Homoeopathic Therapeutics- Tahir Malik Awan

CA$100.00

Homoeopathy is a system of medicine which has penetrated through the world of health and disease as an icon built on solid principles as its foundation. It has proved itself to be worthy of consideration with the other branches of medical science. I do not think that it needs any umbrella, as of  alternative medicine. In fact, it is a complete system with its paraphernalia and has its own individual identity, which is being admitted strongly in the last few decades as an art and science.
During the advance study of homoeopathic philosophy one  often comes across new enigmas and have wonderful experiences. Alternation of homoeopathic remedies is  one of them. In the history of homoeopathic therapeutics, it is a ground reality that there are miracles in single remedy prescription but on many occasions and under undecidable and complicated situations, alternation of remedies is also full of magical results. Various examples of alternations done by renowned homoeopaths could be found as a reference in the introduction and the main part of this book.
Alternation of remedies is a part and parcel of homoeopathic therapeutics. Alternation is not a matter of mixing remedies. It is always giving one remedy at a time and giving other after a lapse of time depending upon the conditions and requirement of the case. I should say that alternation is a cross between two or more required remedies or a point where the  tips of these two or even three remedies meet. It is a converging point where the cure meets the disease and sure it is.
Hahnemann has generally advised to give single remedy and strictly prohibited and condemned the prescription of more than one remedy at a time or mixing them altogether. It has never occurred once or mentioned anywhere that he has strongly prohibited the alternation of remedies. Despite the continuous best efforts when we are not getting the required results and the condition of the patient and intuition of the physician is pointing toward alternation then we must not hesitate to alternate.
Hahnemann himself did alternation when he considered  it as  a necessity, for the betterment of the patient or curing of the disease i.e. be it a miasmatic situation or complications arising from  miasmatic complexities.
From the first edition of “Organon of the Rational System of Medicine”, throughout the evolutionary process, till it reaches the zenith of 6th edition of “Organon of Medicine”, Hahnemann’s thoughts had been oscillating between acceptance and rejection of alternation of remedies. I have not done this work to justify the practice of alternation of remedies. It is just an effort to assimilate the scattered   therapeutical material, on and about alternation by different legendary homoeopaths in the literature available , from the Hahnemannian era to the present times.
I again emphasize that alternation of remedies should not be adopted as a regular practice. It must be used when its need is inevitable and where the totality is indicating the two or more remedies at a time.

Homeopathic Mind Maps - Remedies of the Plant Kingdom - Alicia Lee

Homeopathic Mind Maps - Remedies of the Plant Kingdom - Alicia Lee

CA$99.00

As the practice of homeopathy evolves the methods of case-taking, research, and analysis become simultaneously more simplified and increasingly more sophisticated.  Homeopaths need new ways of viewing the remedies, a linear model is no longer solely sufficient and an additional new integrated model is now imperative.

Mind maps are a multi-dimensional concept, which allow the homeopath to view the remedy in a holistic and visual form. Alicia Lee has created her mind maps using the key group analysis concepts of Rajan Sankaran and 
Jan Scholten in a unique structure allowing the picture to unfold in an intuitive, logical and natural manner. This gives us an alternative to the previous form of definition, with the old familiar pictures to which we are accustomed, and allows for key concepts to be highlighted and primary symptoms to arise from a central scaffold and unfold in a cascade.

This form also allows a full view to be seen at a glance and the relationship of symptoms to emerge in an engaging and easily assimilated way.

Images also assist us to give texture, tone, emotion, sensation and energy to the remedy picture and photographs are a simple and effective way of achieving this. The Images on these mind maps are vibrant and powerful and assist in bringing the mind maps to life.

Presented in three volumes - Remedies of the Animal Kingdom, Remedies of the Mineral Kingdom and Remedies of the Plant Kingdom - 'Homeopathic Mind Maps' are an inspired and valuable new resource for homeopaths to use in their everyday practice.

Animalia by Luke Norland

Animalia by Luke Norland

CA$96.00

Animalia aims to simplify the process of researching animal remedies for both students and seasoned professionals alike. This practical book illuminates the Homeopathic themes of 6 animal families through the prism of mythology, mappa mundi, provings, cases and repertory. There is also a useful appendix on the miasms and their mythological correspondences. Beginning with a broad outline and differentiation of the 3 main kingdoms (animal, plant & mineral), and a comprehensive introduction to the circle of elements, Luke goes on to outline themes of the Spiders, Birds, Insects, Mammals, Snakes and Sea animals. He synthesises provers’ expressions from a diverse selection of classical and modern texts to give an insight into the raw human experience of the different remedy states belonging to each group. Then he gives portraits of a wide selection of individual remedies from within each group, where you will find source information, characteristic rubrics, extracts from the provers and case examples. These portraits are designed to sit alongside existing materia medica, focusing on the singular expressions that may with time and further clinical use become guiding symptoms. Luke has a talent for organizing a broad spectrum of reference material - adding nuance and giving shape to the symptoms so that the Homeopath can be guided to the mode of action of each remedy, whilst keeping in mind the broad themes of the family.

The Art of Proving  by Sonya McLeod

The Art of Proving by Sonya McLeod

CA$96.00

Each and every homeopathic remedy contains within itself the ability to heal unique, characteristic signs and symptoms. These characteristic healing symptoms that are contained within each remedy are an unchanging eternal truth that remain constant through space and time. Homeopathic provings are an effective way to experience and interpret the signs and symptoms (i.e. the eternal healing effect) of remedies. Yet it is somewhat puzzling that provers are able to accurately access the remedy state during unconventional provings where no remedy is ingested, such as dream provings, meditative provings and trituration provings. Since discovering trituration provings in 2010, the author has found them to be a deep and extremely accurate way of exploring a remedy’s healing ability. During the process of making the remedy by hand, while triturating the substance with milk sugar, a doorway is opened to what Jungian psychologists call the collective unconscious. The collective unconscious is like a world database of information that each and every living thing on the planet is connected to. Contained within the database of the collective unconscious is the eternal, unchanging truth of the healing ability of each and every homeopathic remedy. Provings are the author’s higher calling, the vehicle through which her soul journeys towards wholeness. So far, Sonya has conducted provings of 14 different remedies over an eight year period and in this beautiful full colour work, nine complete remedy provings including physical, mental and thematic summaries are given for Albino ‘Ghost’ Redwood, Northwestern Crow, Herkimer Diamond, Woad, Wild Horse, Angelite, Black Kyanite, Raccoon and Giant Panda.

From symptoms to system
From mind-body to vital force
From human to non-human-specific
From confusion to clarity
From arbitrariness to a specific method
To increasing levels of success
may we reach the depth that the spirit can rise!

Excerpt from Introduction:  As “Sankaran’s System” gained popularity all over the world a need was felt to have a ready reference work to the entire body of Dr. Sankaran’s work. The first edition of “Sankaran’s Schema” aimed to bring in a nutshell in a tabulated form the different concepts and information spread all over his books - The Spirit of Homeopathy, The Substance of Homeopathy, The System of Homeopathy, The Sensation in Homeopathy and An Insight Into Plants (Vol I, II & III) and Sensation Refined. The Schema has been very well received and there were many suggestions that it should be expanded so as to make it more complete and up-to-date. In fact this edition contains information from several future books by Rajan Sankaran including Survival (Recognizing Animal Remedies) and Structure (Experiences with the Mineral Kingdom). Many useful suggestions came from Felicia Ann Hubrich and Roberto Gava. The development of the Vital Quest software programme with Paresh Vasani was very helpful in updating the Schema. The planning, collating and execution of this and the earlier edition of the Schema has been done by Meghna Shah.

We must add a note of caution that the Schema is meant only for people who have read the above mentioned books of Dr. Rajan Sankaran and who are familiar with his concepts and method. Without this background, the Schema should not be used With this background however the Schema has proven a very valuable tool. We hope that his more complete and comprehensive edition will further help the practitioners.

Fungi - Massimo Mangialavori

Fungi - Massimo Mangialavori

CA$90.00

THIS SECOND INSTALLMENT of Massimo Mangialavori’s Materia Medica Clinica presents remedies, old and new, from the otherworldly, overlooked kingdom of Fungi. These remedies have enough association to constitute a broad group, while being too disparate to form a homeopathic family. This fascinating menagerie of fourteen remedies is a first attempt to see the commonalities within this mostly unknown territory. Many years ago, Boericke and Allen took steps in this direction, but few have followed since—until now.
