Formatted for easy reference and containing excellent information, this is a great book for the quick acute prescribing, perhaps one of the best.
Developed by Dr. Samuel Hahnemann almost two hundred years ago as a safer alternative to orthodox medical care, homeopathy is now used by millions of people worldwide. In fact, in England, it is the royal family's first choice in treating common health disorders. Yet in this country, although most of us are all too familiar with conventional medicine, relatively few of us understand homeopathy and homeopathic treatments. Because of this lack of familiarity, we shy away from using the many effective homeopathic preparations that are now widely available. To take the mystery out of homeopathy, Dr. Asa Hershoff has written Homeopathic Remedies: A Quick and Easy Guide to Common Disorders and Their Homeopathic Treatments. Here is a guide that actually makes it simple to determine which homeopathic medicine is right for you and your family.
Homeopathic Remedies begins by explaining what homeopathy is — its underlying principles, its view of disease, and its emphasis on symptom observation.
It then discusses how homeopathic preparations should be used— how they are made, how their potency is measured, and how they should be taken.
This is followed by a unique section called the A-to-Z Prescriber. Here you will find over one hundred different ailments listed in alphabetical order — from abscess to memory loss to wrist conditions. On each left-hand page, a specific condition is explained, the possible homeopathic approaches are discussed, and dosage information is provided. The opposite page provides further information on each of the remedies, helping you choose the one that is right for you based on your specific symptoms. You will even learn how to find a homeopath and where you can go to get homeopathic remedies.
