Editorial Reviews

Review

“Homeopathy is perhaps the most misunderstood area of medicine, evoking passions pro and con. In The Homeopathic Revolution, Dana Ullman, one of the world's foremost authorities, illuminates this field for laypersons and professionals alike. Like a medical detective, Ullman probes the corners of history and science in a delightful, fascinating romp."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

“Dana Ullman has done us a major service in showing that many of the smartest and most successful people in recent history have publicly expressed appreciation for the benefits they have received from homeopathy."
—John Robbins, author of Diet For a New America and Healthy at 100

“Several Harvard-affiliated physicians have told me in private conversation that homeopathy has helped their family members or friends, but they would not want to say so publicly due to fear of ridicule. Hopefully, this book will help open-minded doctors and scientists to realize they are not alone and to have the courage to call for more research on this most interesting and paradoxical form of treatment.”
—David Anick, PhD, MD, research associate at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School

“Dana Ullman takes the reader from the origins of homeopathy as a nineteenth-century system of medicine into a twenty-first-century science. In this fascinating ride through medical history, he shows us that many of the world's most famous and respected people of the past 200 years have advocated for and appreciated this other approach to medicine. I am personally amazed that so many of my cultural heroes have benefited from this misunderstood science and healing art. Homeopathy deserves a definitive place in health care today.”
—Leonard A. Wisneski, MD, FACP, endocrinologist and Clinical Professor of Medicine at George Washington University Medical Center; adjunct faculty in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University; and author of The Scientific Basis of Integrative Medicine

“Drawing upon the extensive use of homeopathy by historical figures, founders of modern medicine, and current celebrities, The Homeopathic Revolution documents the long-standing efficacy of homeopathy. Given the research breakthroughs in the biological and clinical effects of nanopharmacology, it is a certainty that homeopathy has an evolving scientific foundation in the integrative medicine of the future.”
—Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of Arizona, and author of The Best Alternative Medicine: What Works? What Does Not?

Even if you have never tried homeopathy (and so hate it) this book is going to pry your mind open.
Health Conscious
The first book I ever read about homeopathy--about 16 years ago--was written by Dana Ullmann and it helped me pursue homeopathy for health and as a profession.
K. Z. Berg
Marki Twain, Louisa May Alcott, William James .... This is an unconventional book about a non conventional system of medicine.

This book is amazing. Homeopathy is the second most widely practised form of medical care in the world (says WHO) , and yet conventional or 'allopathic' medicine so often pours scorn upon homeopathy. Here is a well written book of praise from Dana Ullman who cites such a range of people using it from a Pope to the Lubavicher Rebbe, from Beethoven to David Beckham the footballer, presidents and kings and queens. Marki Twain, Louisa May Alcott, William James .... This is an unconventional book about a non conventional system of medicine. I hope it provokes a revolution and helps bring homeopathy out from the cold. These well known famous people whose names Dana eloquently drops, have all been cured of some dreadful disease. The book is an easy read as each chapter tells another short story about writers, musicians, politicians and other cultural heroes. This sort of medical history is fun.

Format: Paperback
This is a long awaited book by the homeopathic community that supports the effacy of this model of health care. Homeopathy is an energy based medicine that is experienced, effective, and gentle. It was not always easy to practice in the past. With the addition of the computer age and a worldwide network of successful teachers, homeopathy is producing results that outperform every other medical model. This book in the mainstream could revolutionize the health care system in America, as it already does aroung the world.

Format: Paperback
Having known and worked with Dana Ullman for a number of years has been fun, educational and inspirational to say the least. His newest work, THE HOMEOPATHIC REVOLUTION, is a remarkable book as it maintains a very readable and understandable quality while simultaneously providing insight into a very comprehensive history of the evolution of homeopathy and its most noted proponents. I place this book proudly on my shelf along with other exceptional works on the subject of homeopathy, and I recommend this to anyone wanting a good read and a deeper appreciation of Dana's talents, passion, and the wonders of homeopathy.

If you have ever wanted to try homeopathy, but weren't sure what it is, or thought your doctor would laugh at you, read this book and learn more about it, it's history and other famous people who were helped by it. I have found it incredibly useful and fun to use the information in conversations with others about natural health care. Who can scoff at all those well-respected people and their amazing stories?

The first book I ever read about homeopathy--about 16 years ago--was written by Dana Ullmann and it helped me pursue homeopathy for health and as a profession. Thanks for writing this one! It is the start of what homeopathy really needs--famous people advocating its amazing healing powers.

Format: Paperback
The name and life work of Dana Ullman, MPH, should be familiar to practitioners of homeopathy around the world, and especially in the English speaking world. Indeed, in America, his name and service to homeopathy is certainly well known to every practitioner and to many grateful laypersons who rely upon the resources he offers them. His justified fame comes not only through the publication of his own fine books, but perhaps even more actively through his dedicated directorship of the Homeopathic Educational Services, based in California but accessible to the world by mailorder and online. I daresay most American students and practitioners of homeopathy could hardly survive without this well-established, reliable, and highly respected comprehensive source of books, media and software and publications focussed on homeopathy. Through the resources of the Homeopathic Educational Services and his popular books, I believe Ullman has done more to educate, inform and thereby advance homeopathy in the United States than any other single individual. As such, any new book by Ullman is well worth the attention of the practitioner or anyone interested in this fascinating branch of healing, experiencing a rebirth in the 21st century--to a significant extent, midwifed in America by Ullman. His latest work, The Homeopathic Revolution (North Atlantic Press), provides a rich source of historical information on the source and rocky road of homeopathy by tracing its history and with brief biographies of its pioneers and patients.Read more ›

This book is really great. Even if you have never tried homeopathy (and so hate it) this book is going to pry your mind open. All the biographies of famous people who use homeopathy not only gives one courage to try it but also backs you up when your friends tell you using homeopathys is for weirdos. Is Tina Turner a weirdo?
Beyond the bios are some really thought provoking pieces about the pharmaceutical industry like Why Homeopaths are Hated and Vilified. Too, the chapter on water and its capacity for memory is most timely in science today. It consider it a MUST READ for 2008
