Editorial Reviews

Review

"The important concepts of homeopathy should be studied most seriously not only by those in medicine but in all social sciences. Dana Ullman's book is an eye-opener!"
- Robert Muller

"Too often books on alternative medicine resort to doctor-baiting and mellow-speak psychobabble. This book does neither. The author states his case for homeopathy well by citing numerous double-blind laboratory and clinical studies that merit the attention of medical professionals and the general public alike."
- Marvin McMillen

Format: Paperback
Dana Ullman, one of the leading advocates of homeopathic medicine, has produced a comprehensive, lucid introduction to this branch of complementary medicine, covering the history and the philosophy of homeopathy as well as the (surprisingly strong) scientific evidence supporting its effectiveness for a variety of conditions. A detailed discussion of the effectiveness and the limits of homeopathy in the treatment of infectious disease, allergies, chronic diseases, psychological conditions and dentistry, as well as its applications in pregnancy and labour, women's health, pediatrics and sports medicine follows.
The final part of the book gives concrete advice on how to learn more about homeopathy, in particular about homeopathic self-treatment, and on how to go about finding a homeopathic practitioner. To avoid misunderstanding, this is not a self-care book. Detailed remedy pictures and usage instructions are beyond the scope of this book. If that is what you are looking for, I would recommend "The Consumer's Guide to Homeopathy" by the same author, which gives a condensed version of the historical and philosophical background of homeopathy as a prelude to a detailed discussion of the self-treatment of acute conditions.
A list of homeopathic manifacturers, organizations and schools and a bibliography complete this work.

If you're new to homeopathy, this is an average book to educate you some on it. Our family bought this for a gift and read it, too. It's a good place to start your homeopathy education, but it's not going to give you much else and certainly doesn't go in depth about this fabulous natural healing modality. We absolutely use and recommend homeopathy; it's been amazing for our family, pets included. For those who've never tried it, we hope you will as you will not be disappointed.

More qualitative than quantitative. Chapters based on categories of treatment, rather than explaining how to make homeopathic preparations and what the relative strengths are.

Always a good idea to purchase text books from Amazon rather than the campus book store! All the used books I have purchased on line, have always been in great condition.
