Therapeutic Guide & Thematic Materia Medica of Homeopathic Medicine
Delen op sociale media
The concept for this book came from working in clinical situations in various African countries and seeing the challenge and need to have important information at one’s fingertips. It has developed into a comprehensive therapeutic guide designed for busy clinical practice anywhere in the world and a thematic materia medica for practical access to the main themes of a remedy. Therapeutic materia medicas are part of the history of homeopathy but there has been a need for an update to reflect modern homeopathic practice.
The book is divided into three main sections:
- Therapeutic comparisons of remedies for many acute and chronic conditions
- A thematic materia medica of important remedies and therapeutic remedy pictures for acute prescribing
- An abridged repertory using J.T. Kent’s repertory in Generalities and Mind, and C.M. Boger’s repertory of aggravations and ameliorations. This is designed for simple repertory access, focusing on modalities and major themes.
