“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?
