A lifetime of experience in NHS practice is offered under the modest title Homeopathy in General Practice. From the detailed presentation of 129 cases one can sense the difficulties encountered when one is faced with the task of combining homeopathy and general practice. Dr Jack has just achieved this feat. His book is a treasure trove for all, students and practitioners alike.

The publisher:

This book is a practical guide to the use of homeopathic medicine over a wide range of the illnesses and conditions that arise in the normal course of general practice. The author demonstrates how homeopathy can be used to great advantage in place of, as well as in conjunction with, conventional medicine.
The book is structured conventionally in relation to the systems of the body, but the supporting analysis of patient management is given in homeopathic terms within the context of each patient's life and personal characteristics. The text is reinforced by the inclusion of a hundred and twenty-nine cases from the author's practice, many of which are described in considerable detail. There are also numerous discussion sections in which he explains his treatment strategies.
Dr Alastair Jack was born in Peebles, in the Scottish borders, in 1920 and was educated at King Edward's School in Birmingham. He did his medical training at Birmingham University, where he was captain of athletics and vice-captain of hockey. After the war he went into general practice in Catshill, near Birmingham, where he remained until he retired from the National Health Service in 1980.
Dr Jack and his wife, who have recently celebrated their golden wedding anniversary, have a close-knit family, with five children, two of whom followed him into his practice. He is a Founder Elder of his local church, where he helped establish a large Sunday school, and has spent many evenings, weekends and holidays with the young people. His strong Christian faith has always been the mainstay in his life.
He has lectured on homeopathy for many years, at the Royal London Homeopathic Hospital, in the Midlands and widely throughout the United Kingdom. He continues in private practice, and enjoys country walks with his family.

notes from practice
Although I did not choose this book as part of my bigger order of other books I really appreciate this gift from Narayana. As a GP myself I was captured by the clear explanations of the most frequent situations in a practice resolved by Homeopathy. Its captivating language makes it an excellent book for professionals and amateurs alike. read more ...

Dr. Alastair Jack – A Sensation of True Humanism
Lire ce livre, c’est comme suivre un parcours à obstacles où se côtoient : d’un côté, des histoires médicales plutôt techniques et quelques fois difficiles à saisir – et de l’autre côté, des anecdotes/explications d’ordre générale sur l’homéopathie [honnête – simple – étonnant – intéressant.

Considérant que dès le début de sa pratique en médecine générale, le Docteur Alastair Jack consacrait à part égale, ses disponibilités entre l’allopathie et l’homéopathie; il confie quand même clairement que l’option homéopathique “is very time-consuming”. Que l’on reporte l’auteur dans son époque ou qu’on le compare aux professionnels du métier, on peut se demander quelle motivation pratique a influencé sa “décision homéopathique”.

Il me semble que le Dr R.A.F. Jack avait une nature curieuse, loin des préjugés faciles, et souple quant au code de sa profession. Ne s’intéresserait-il pas simplement à une approche thérapeutique complémentaire qui lui permettait de mieux apprécier 50 ans de médecine familiale. Dans les faits, cet homme nous sousmet par ce livre l’ABC de l’homéopathie sans parti pris, sinon celui d’aimer rencontrer quelqu’un : Voilà un homme intéressé à la nature humaine.

Dr jack me fait penser à ce Nazaréen d’une autre époque, qui après avoir accueilli et ressenti cette personne-là, - mélangea terre et salive pour emplâtrer ses yeux -. Il y avait les foules anonymes et tout-à-coup quelqu’un !?!

On perçoit de l’auteur une authenticité. “Le bon père de famille” s’appliquant à servir ses contemporains avec les méthodes médicales que l’on connaît, mais qui par moment s’intéresse vraiment à son interlocuteur : Dr jack passe à ce moment en mode enquête homéopathique prenant le temps qu’il faut pour connaître son patient.

Parcourir ce livre, c’est à la fois une lecture légère et profonde – parce que la suite d’une centaine de cas permet de faire le tour du quotidien d’une médecine de campagne – parce qu’à travers l’une et l’autre des situations, on nous initie avec “des exemples bien réels” aux notions de base de l’homéopathie - incluant doutes et critiques. read more ...
