„This is a work written by a homeopath with many years in both practice and teaching. It shows his discipline and careful choice of words. Whenever one needs to decide between remedies that are close, this book will prove a valuable addition.”
Alan V. Schmukler in Hpathy Ezine, October, 2015

The publisher:

This book offers an original perspective on comparative materia medica, incorporating information on newer and less understood remedies within the framework of well-known remedies. It clarifies and systematizes our study of materia medica, allowing us to navigate the complexities of materia medica study more effectively.

There are thirty-six chapters, each one focusing on a well-known remedy, giving an initial summary and utilizing a three-stage development for each remedy – Intrinsic, Compensated, Decompensated – that relates to the three fundamental miasms of Psora, Sycosis and Syphilis. Each remedy is compared and discussed within this framework, weaving comparisons with many other remedies in the process.

Understanding how to relate and compare remedies is essential in the development of homeopathic knowledge and this book explores comparisons and relationships from many perspectives – constitutional, mental, pathological, miasmatic, keynote, organ affinity etc.

There are discussions of remedies from all realms: animals such as insects, birds, mammals and sea remedies; common and unusual mineral and metal remedies and plant and other vegetable remedies, including fungi. Remedies from the bacteria and virus families and other imponderabilia are compared, always looking at possible connections to well-proven and documented remedies.

A Comparative Materia Medica offers a bridge; it allows for the exploration of new areas of homeopathic knowledge, and seeks to ground our existing knowledge into a coherent pattern so the practice of homeopathy can be objectively applied and verified.

Just what I was looking for...
I love this book. More than just a reference book, one is drawn in to the descriptions of each remedy and others which resemble it. There's a really useful quick-reference section at the back which leads you to other remedies you mightn't have thought of at first and the descriptions in the chapters are interesting, enlightening and easy to read. read more ...
