This useful guide is a single, indispensable resource for anyone interested in using homeopathic medicines. Noted author Dennis Chernin introduces readers to the basics of homeopathic theory, laws, history, and practical applications, as well as to clear explanations of the fundamental homeopathic vocabulary. He provides a brief synopsis of homeopathy's present status and compares it with conventional medicine, before proceeding to a step-by-step guide to creating a home remedy kit. The bulk of the book focuses on more than 150 common disorders, conditions, and illnesses, each treated in a separate section, alphabetically organized. Each section includes basic background information as well as accessible guidance on how to consider the symptoms and how to treat and heal them. For each condition, all the possible symptoms are matched with the remedy appropriate to them. The bundled CDROM integrates these resources with a simple, graphics-based user interface incorporating the latest research.
