Published in 1980, this book remains the best comprehensive overview of Homeopathy available to date. I am a faculty member of the Center for Health and Healing in New York City. I practice and teach homeopathy there. Our fellows are required to read this book prior to the beginning of the homeopathic curriculum.
I highly reccomend this book for any serious student of homeopathy.

If you are not familiar with how homeopathy works exactly, George Vitoulkas outlines the theory and practice of this energy medicine and how it works to strenghen the immunity system and stimulate our 'vital force'. The Science of Homeopathy is a classic text which will significantly impact the way you view health and illness.
I highly recommend this book for any academic scholar who is dissatisfied with our current and ailing system of allopathic medicine or who is interested in simply knowing more than what homeopathy is. It is only for the seriously interested layperson however, as it is may be considered a 'technical and highly challenging read.
The Science of Homeopathy has profound implications for the future of health care AND for the evolution of the human organism.

It has been well said that to learn things right you must study from the Masters. This book is written on the philosophy and orthodox practice of homeopathy (h/p) by the living master of classical h/p, George Vithoulkas.
It is a complete book that puts homeopathy in the right context from the beginning. It teaches the virtue of finding the correct remedy and practicing patience and restrain rather than the "fast food" approach to h/p common today.
While it is targeted to the prescriber (or student of h/p) it is highly recommended for the educated 'patient' who wants a rounded understanding on the subject. Furthermore, Appendix B is worth the whole price of the book.
This is a book of substance. You may read it overnight like many books but what is important, this is a book to read three times and still come back to it.

This textbook of the Science of Homeopathy is required reading in all Homeopathic educational programs I know of. George Vithoulkas, one of THE foremost modern homeopaths, clearly explains the HOW and WHY of homeopathic cure, and details the steps in beginning to learn and to practice homeopathy, the Medicine of the twenty-first century.

An amazingly readable book about the philosophy and methodology of homeopathic remedies. Makes it very clear how it differs from conventional medicine, how it works and why it is a safe and effective alternative to many of the modern allopathic medications. Takes the mystery and fear out of beginning your journey into being a homeopathic patient.

Quick delivery, great book for case intakes. I highly recommend to everyone. Though Vithoulkas may be on quack watch, he has lots of wisdom to share for growing homeopaths.

This excellent book is for students and/or beginning practitioners, but it should be required reading before consumers are allowed to purchase so-called homeopathic remedies, or worse, visit allopaths and naturopaths who profit from consumer interest in homeopathy.

After reading this book, you will realize that anyone who tells you homeopathic remedies are "safe" is at best ignorant, and any allopath or naturopath who prescribes homeopathic remedies is at best dishonest.

This book is an excellent remedy for the kind of irrational, magical thinking that leads fools to believe there can be a powerful medicine that is also perfectly safe in the hands of an idiot. Read it before you buy an OTC homeopathic remedy for the flu, or before you believe you are getting the best of all possible worlds when you visit an allopath or naturopath who claims expertise in homeopathy.

This is advice from a person whose introduction to homeopathy was being harmed by a naturopath (I wish I could publish her name and address) practising the art of extracting dollars from the gullible. Allopathy and naturopathy are systems that are completely antithetic to homeopathy. No honest person can practise both, a fact that this book makes pefectly clear.

With this book, George Vithoulkas has served both the student of homeopathy and the general public.

It is the MUST as the first step for beginners and professionals alike.
In short, for all those who are serious learners.

If you are already knowledgeable about homeopathy, this book will give you a clearer understanding of the human body, health and disease, which is essential before you get into the details of Materia Medica.

And if you are not, and are just curious to know what homeopathy is all about, and how it works wonders in areas where traditional medicine has miserably failed, then you should hear from the master himself, George Vithoulkas. Let me warn you, you might just get converted!
