Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a consumers' guide to treating minor ailments without drugs..."
—New York Times

"This is both a general introduction to and a manual of homeopathy...illustrated by examples from Panos' practice and clear enough for a novice to follow."
—Kirkus Reviews
 
"Finally, a sensible substantial book about homeopathy. I've been using it in my family for years and have hoped that someone would write just this kind of common sense introduction.... With this book you can understand the principles, order your own remedies, and test the results."
James Fadiman, Ph.D., Co-Evolution Quarterly
 
Homeopathic Medicine at Home is a great book that I use almost on a daily basis. I like this one as it's laid out in short, easy to read chapters, there are charts listing remedies, symptoms and tips to help pick the remedy for each situation.”
—Modern Hippie

If you do buy this book (and I encourage you to - it's well worth the investment) I would really encourage you to read the book through.

I got interested in homeopathic medicine when a homeopathic teething medicine proved helpful for my grandson.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been studying homeopathy for 30 years & when I do not have time to fully repertorize an illness (which is almost NEVER with anything acute these days!) this book is my first resource. It seems to cover most acute illnesses & is especially good for treating colds, flu, stings, gas, teething problems, sore throats, etc....

I would like to see a better cross-referenced Index, but the numerous charts supplied somewhat make up for this short-coming - making it pretty easy to locate the problem/illness without too much difficulty. It also contains a nice little Materia Medica in the back -- so if you can't decide between several remedies this will help narrow the choice as it gives the specifics for the remedy as opposed to the main part of the book which gives the recommended remedies for the illiness.

I often back it up with "Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines" by Stephen Cummings & Dana Ullman - but if I had to choose only one book to purchase I would go with the book I am reviewing.

Another small short-coming of the book is it doesn't cover CELL SALTS as completely as needed (although, to be fair, no "quick-guide" homeopathic book does - with any depth anyway). which is why I would recommend the companion book: "Natural Healing with Cell Salts" by Dr. Skye Weintraub. Personally, I have found cell salts to work extremely well in conjunction with homeopathic remedies. Even though I practice the principals of classical homeopathy (ONE remedy at a time - changing the remedy until you find the one that works, & change remedies as soon as symptoms change &/or the current remedy no longer works) I still like to combine a homeopathic remedy with a cell salt.

Format: Paperback
Of all the homeopathic books written for the general public, this is one of the most useful. If you've suffered a minor injury, or come down with a cold, flu or earache, or if you are having an upset stomach, this book will quickly guide you to the correct remedy. It is easily understood by the medical layperson, and it will give you solid knowledge of how to treat yourself and others in a safe, natural way, without the risks, side-effects and costs of conventional drugs.
It goes without saying that any self-help book, no matter how good, does not replace the care of a medical professional. If you have a serious or chronic condition, and you think that homeopathy can help, go see a qualified homeopathic practitioner.

This is an excellent book overall and is the text for the National Center for Homeopathy's study group course. Dr. Panos gives verbose, anecdotal images of the differences between the different remedies for a given ailment, as well as good general background on homeopathy.

I am just starting out in homeopathy, so take this into account. I love this book, it has charts in it that have quick reference that lists the remedy, specific indications, general symptoms, worse from and better from categories. It is perfect for me as a beginner!

Format: Paperback
This is the first book I bought on homeopathic medicine when I first began using it more than twelve years ago. I like the way it is written - it almost feels as though you have a kindly physician sitting across from you. That being said, my one complaint with this book is the repetories/remedies pages that are placed at the end of each chapter. I have never used these and find them a bit confusing.

If you do buy this book (and I encourage you to - it's well worth the investment) I would really encourage you to read the book through. Then you will be able to more easily find the remedies that apply to you in times of emergency. I now have several books on homeopathy on my shelves, and this is always the first one I turn to when I or a family member are sick.

Well worth the investment.

I'm not a politically correct person, but as a single male retiree interested in learning about homeopathy this book was a huge disappointment. There are sections on homeopathy for babies, growing children and women, but nothing on issues for men. Often as we age for example prostate issues can arise. There is a section on urinary problems - IN PREGNANCY. The real insult is there is a section on homeopathic solutions for PETS! I wonder what else this book is missing? I returned for refund.

The informational portion of this book is helpful, but I was disappointed in the appendix. There are many other references (Materia Medica, etc.) that are much easier to peruse, and you will certainly need a secondary resource for that purpose.

The author's personal experiences in the field are very interesting, so I recommend it for an overview of the subject.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As the mother of two small children, I find this book quite helpful. It is a general overview of homeopathy and provides enough detail that I can handle common problems on my own. It includes sections on the following subjects:
1. What is homeopathy?
2. A homeopathic physician at work
3. Your homeopathic remedy kid
4. What to do for accidents
5. In case of emergency
6. How to prevent and treat colds, coughs and earaches
7. Remedies for stomach and bowel problems
8. A happier baby with homeopathic care
9. Your growing child
10. What homeopathy can do for women
11. Keeping your pets healthy

The appendixes include the following:
* Remedies and their abbreviations
* Mini-repertory
* Materia Medica
* Pharmacies carry homeopathic remedies (this section is somewhat out of date as it does not list any online sources)

Chapter 8, with its section on on teething and the remedy chamomilla alone is worth the price of the book. I was first introduced to homeopathy when my first born was teething. He had been crying and sleeping only for brief periods for days. I gave him a dose of a remedy containing chamomilla, and he immediately stopped crying and fell asleep. I was amazed!

I also frequently refer to chapter 6 during cold season. The section on croup is quite good, explaining when to use each of the most commonly needed remedies.

One thing I didn't like about the book is how she talks about the same subject more than once, for instance fever in 3 different chapters. In one chapter she gives the remedies for a fever and in another chapter she says just to let it run unless it gets to 105 degrees Fahrenheit or more, and if that is the case, call your doctor.
