Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Written by a medical doctor and a well-known homeopath, who has authored several books on the subject, this revised and expanded edition is a good introduction to the theory and practice of homeopathy. Intended for the lay reader, the bulk of the book details self-treatment options for common ailments. The authors take great care advising patients when professional medical intervention is warranted. For most consumer collections.

We've only had this book for a few months and it's dog-eared already. Granted, since then, we've been overseas and back so we're a little predisposed to being stressed out and sick. Disclaimers aside, it's been a fairly comprehensive guide to combating colds and other problems -- even a first-degree burn. It has a very helpful section on casetaking and is well-organized. It's not exhaustive, but it serves its purpose well -- as a guide to situations which arise most often in the home. It tells you when to seek outside help and what to do yourself. It also gives suggestions to go along with the remedies (the use of ice, heat; when to make rest a priority) and explanations (what's the definition of a croupy cough). I'd say if you had to choose only two books on homeopathy for your library I'd recommend this and the Materia Medica.

This was the second book on homeopathy that I bought, and it quickly became the only book I use. I like its clear explanations, organization, and use of modalities in the descriptions. It's easy for me to ask myself questions and compare my responses with the descritptions in the book. It's been my guide for over 20 years, and during that time I haven't taken a drug for any reason!

This book is a fantastic reference book. I recommend it to all of my patients and non-homeopathic medical colleagues. This book guides you to the remedy better than almost any book I have seen. Homeopathy can be frustrating, if you give the right remedy the patient gets better very quickly, however, if you don't little will happen. This book will help you increase your accuracy. Your family will thank you!! If there is only one homeopathic book on your bookshelf, this should be it.

I use this book all the time, because it is arranged by ailment and easy to access. There are also more in depth sections on the most common remedies. If I could just have one homeopathic book, this would be it.

Each time this book was reprinted since the 1980's, I've bought the new editions and liked each one even more! I give it to all of my friends new to homeopathy. The chapters focus on specific ailments (sore throats, accidents and injuries, headaches, digestive problems, etc.) and have leading questions to ask the patient to help you find the correct remedy for the acute ailment. There are cautions about when you need to call a health care provider for an illness. And there are enough remedies described that you most often will find the one that will work. It's just a very helpful book and a good introduction to the wonders of homeopathy. I have shelves of homeopathy books, but I often start with this one if one of our family is sick.

My aunt gave me this book about six months ago. It has been sitting on my shelf for most of that time as I tinkered with a few Remedies here and there. Well, a particularly fearsome strain of something was knocking down my coworkers right and left - and finally got me too. So... while I was in misery at home I decided to start reading this book. I read through the whole intro (yes, some parts of it may not be easy to grasp) but then flipped to the different subjects further back and started going through them. Guess what! Not only did I find my (near) perfect match for a remedy, I happened to already have it and began taking it immediately. I was back at work the NEXT DAY!!! Most of my coworkers who got whatever it is were out for 2 - 10 days!!! This book is really useful and homeopathy really does work for me and my son; hope you give it an honest try too (especially with great reference works like this!)

This book is a fantastic reference book. I recommend it to all of my patients and non-homeopathic medical colleagues. This book guides you to the remedy better than almost any book I have seen. In homeopathy everything must be individualized. If you give the right remedy the patient gets better very quickly, however, if you choose the wrong remedy little will happen. This book will help you increase your accuracy and get people better faster. Your family will thank you!! If there is only one homeopathic book on your bookshelf, this should be it.

After my first copy wore out, I am now on to my second copy! My kids came down with lots of ear infections when they were small, and I am wary of antibiotics and their overuse. Homeopathy became a great help. Our kids are now in elementary school, and I still use it for their little ailments. This book is written very clearly and provides lots of information without being overwhelming. Even my husband has fallen for it, although he doesn't want to admit it, (or can't explain how it is possible this would actually work, but it does)
