George Vithoulkas, in his epochal materia medica lectures, managed to get to the very heart of many new and old remedies, enabling us to better imagine and so remember them. His pupils published an unauthorized short materia medica based on these great lectures, known as the "Essence of Materia Medica", which is still very popular and which inspired a whole generation of homeopaths. Incidentally, this is very like what happened with Kent's lectures, which were also written up by his pupils and became a very popular materia medica. But then Vithoulkas decided to publish his own long-awaited complete materia medica, which he started many years ago with this series.
It is substantially more comprehensive than the Essences. We might compare the Viva with the late work of the German writer Herman Hesse, "The Glass Bead Game", whereas the Essences is similar to his early short masterpiece “Siddhartha”. Both have their own merits and the reader can decide which they prefer.
The first 12 volumes of a big edition, the remaining volumes are yet to be published.
If you buy the set one volume is for free.

Product information Materia Medica Viva - Volume 11

Numerous homeopathic professionals have for a long time been asking me to write "my materia medica." They feel that the information I have provided in various seminars over the years should reach a wider audience. To date this information has been available to only a limited number of homeopathic physicians. I have postponed this Herculean task for many years in order to create the necessary circumstances to do justice to such a tremendous job, namely, to communicate my experience, knowledge and understanding of our materia medica.

To date this information has been available to only a limited number of homeopathic physicians. I have postponed this Herculean task for many years in order to create the necessary circumstances to do justice to such a tremendous job, namely, to communicate my experience, knowledge and understanding of our materia medica.

When these requests began, as early as 1975-76, I did not see any reason to write such a book as I felt I had little new to add to the existing voluminous amount of information concerning our homeopathic remedies and their pathognomonic pictures.

Subsequently I was persuaded by my best students, as to the importance of publishing a complete materia medica, one that would contain all the information and understanding that I have accumulated over my last thirty years of practice.

Because a real need exists for the information, I have decided to publish Materia Medica Viva in separate volumes instead of waiting for the entire work to be completed.

Product information Materia Medica Viva - Volume 12

This is volume 12 of the monumental “Materia Medica Viva” by the leading Greek homeopath George Vithoulkas, covering the remedies Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum to Iris Versicolor. Each remedy is described in terms of its essence (important for every student of homeopathy to grasp) and its generalities and keynotes (important when studying a case). Vithoulkas has poured the accumulated knowledge of at least thirty years of homeopathic practice into this work – and it clearly shows in terms of the quality, breadth, and depth of his remedy descriptions.

The Publisher:

1. Essences

The essential features which I consider the heart of the remedy in which I give mostly my own experience and my understanding of the remedy. In this chapter I have tried to capture the uniqueness of each remedy, the peculiarities that cause one remedy to be different from another, so that the student may be helped in understanding the remedy in its essence and the way it differs from others. This part is the one that the students should study.

2. Generalities and Keynotes

The second part gives generalities and keynote symptoms on different systems. This part is only for reference when you study a case.
I eagerly look forward to the day when we, as a homeopathic group, possess the means to engage in truly meaningful homeopathic research - research with the aim of improving our knowledge of our medicines, of establishing correct and reliable information concerning the action of homeopathic remedies upon the hu...

They feel that the information I have provided in various courses over the years should reach a wider audience. To date this information has been available to only a limited number of homeopathic physicians. I have postponed this Herculean task for many years in order to create the necessary circumstances to do justice to such a tremendous job, namely, to communicate my experience, knowledge and understanding of our materia medica.

When these requests began, as early as 1975-76, I did not see any reason to write such a book as I felt I had little new to add to the existing voluminous amount of information concerning our homeopathic remedies and their pathognomonic pictures.

Subsequently I was persuaded by my best students, as to the importance of publishing a complete materia medica, one that would contain all the information and understanding that I have accumulated over my last thirty years of practice.

Because a real need exists for the information, I have decided to publish Materia Medica Viva in separate volumes instead of waiting for the entire work to be completed.


The structure

I have structured the Materia Medica Viva in order that the information will be used for both study and reference.
The Essential Features are the part of the remedy that should be studied by the student. The rest should be used only for reference in studying a case.

Product information Materia Medica Viva - Volume 12

This is volume 12 of the monumental “Materia Medica Viva” by the leading Greek homeopath George Vithoulkas, covering the remedies Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum to Iris Versicolor. Each remedy is described in terms of its essence (important for every student of homeopathy to grasp) and its generalities and keynotes (important when studying a case). Vithoulkas has poured the accumulated knowledge of at least thirty years of homeopathic practice into this work – and it clearly shows in terms of the quality, breadth, and depth of his remedy descriptions.

The Publisher:

1. Essences

The essential features which I consider the heart of the remedy in which I give mostly my own experience and my understanding of the remedy. In this chapter I have tried to capture the uniqueness of each remedy, the peculiarities that cause one remedy to be different from another, so that the student may be helped in understanding the remedy in its essence and the way it differs from others. This part is the one that the students should study.

2. Generalities and Keynotes

The second part gives generalities and keynote symptoms on different systems. This part is only for reference when you study a case.
I eagerly look forward to the day when we, as a homeopathic group, possess the means to engage in truly meaningful homeopathic research - research with the aim of improving our knowledge of our medicines, of establishing correct and reliable information concerning the action of homeopathic remedies upon the hu...
