First in the series 'Transformation between the Realms', this book examines the insect group of remedies. Comparisons with other groups are made, birds for example, which are sometimes extremely subtle but nevertheless clear.
"It become obvious that there is a world of remedies out there, which we have been missing (800,000 known insect species) and we need many more provings if we are to properly utilise this source." T.Burchill (The Homeopath)
The insects are the largest and most important class of the animal kingdom. They are central to all aspects of life on Earth being major forces in both the creation and destruction of life. In spite of this importance they have not yet had a significant role in homœopathy. In the last decade a dozen new Insect provings have opened up the remedy pictures and given us an insight into the properties of the group as a whole. The issues of the Insects correspond to those of the modern world and modern disease yet they are still little understood and considerably underused.
This is the first study of the known Insect remedies and it outlines the features that are common to the whole group and the often subtle distinctions that differentiate between them.
Transformation between the Realms
The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members. Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees.
"Peter's series of books has been a revelation. The discrimination between insects and birds is so succinct it is hard to believe it is so true. I can think of no homœopathic books available which give so much wisdom for such a small cost! They have inspired my practice, and benefited my patients."
- Geoff Johnson
"This book is remarkably informative, not only in the description of the different Insect remedies but more importantly in delineating how the traits of the insect are expressed in human pathology. The information is practical and brings alive the Insect remedies in a way that is exciting and inspiring."
