The book concentrates on 8 selected remedies which, according to Herscu's experience, turn out to be the simillimum in 80 percent of all pediatric cases: Calcarea carbonica, Lycopodium, Medorrhinum, Natrium muriaticum, Phosphorus, Pulsatilla, Sulphur, and Tuberculinum.
The Homeopathic Treatment of Children is indispensible at giving both a clear overall impression of the various major constitutional types, and also a detailed outline for reference at the end of each chapter. Not only does Paul Herscu draw from various sources (repertories and materia medica), he also adds indispensable original information from his successful practice.
Paul Herscu, N.D., a native of Rumania, is a graduate of the National College of Naturopathic Medicine in Portland, Oregon. He resides in Amherst, Massachusetts, with his wife and partner Amy Rothenberg, N.D., daughter Sophia, and son Misha, where he practices, teaches, and writes about homeopathy.
"I was very impressed with the careful and thorough treatment that Dr. Herscu gives to each remedy. This is a book which will be extremely useful for any serious student or practitioner of homeopathy. I will highly recommend this book to all my colleagues and students."
- Roger Morrison, M.D., D.Ht.
"This book is a compelling description and impressively practical guide to the use of homeopathic medicines in treating underlying health problems of children. Herscu's clear and vivid depictions of these constitutional types will help anyone understnad children more deeply and help cure them more completely."
- Kenneth P. Stoller, M.D.
