Perfect For Patient Education and As a Text For First-Year Students.

  • Dozens of first-person testimonials of homeopathic cures for a variety of physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Among these is the amazing story of how Amy Lansky’s son was cured of autism with homeopathy.
  • A comprehensive introduction to homeopathic philosophy. This includes a discussion of the Law of Similars, remedy provings, suppression, susceptibility, the Law of Cure, totality of symptoms, individualization of treatment, the center of the case, and prioritization of symptoms.
  • A step-by-step guide for patients, including: how to find a homeopath; preparing for appointments and follow-ups; what to expect during a homeopathic interview; dosing; antidoting; and interactions with allopathic treatment. The issue of vaccination is also addressed — especially its relationship to autism and other chronic diseases.
