Each chapter of a particular family starts with a brief introduction about the family by the common features of the family [theme] giving the idea of the important aspects of that family, physical as well as mental, which run common or help to make a peculiar portrait of the family.
This is followed by individual remedies included in that family with the description of their peculiarities as well as the features common to that family.
Another important aspect at the end of the themes of the family is the 'note on differentiating features' of that and other related families. It is specially introduced as an answer to the frequently asked question- 'why you thought of this family and not that?'.
The most important part of the book is the chapter 'Road to Reach the Right Plant Family'. This chapter is written after the in-depth understanding of various families. This also answers the question 'How do we reach a particular family when we know that we need to prescribe a plant remedy?'.
