Homeopathy is an increasingly popular alternative to traditional medicine, but many people are still unsure whether it really works. In this book, a Stanford-trained physician examines the science that lies behind homeopathy's success. Chapters include: principles, clinical evidence, physics of potentized water, effects on cells and tissues, transmission to living organisms, and remedy archetypes.
The popularity of homeopathy has been increasing dramatically both in America and worldwide. Annual world sales of homeopathic remedies are approaching two billion dollars. In this thorough examination of homeopathy, physicist Jay W. Shelton analyzes the history, the remedies, the logical inconsistencies, and the effectiveness of this popular alternative medicine.Invented by German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-1843), homeopathy is based on two key principles: (1) the law of similars-symptoms induced in healthy volunteers after ingestion of a substance are the same symptoms in sick people that this substance will cure; and (2) the concept of potentization-the most diluted remedies have the greatest curative power. Shelton clearly shows that although these principles may have had the ring of science in the early 19th century, they are not well supported by today's science.And yet, most patients who visit homeopaths are better afterwards. Homeopaths assume the remedies are the cause. Shelton finds explanations based on known science to be better supported by the evidence. Unassisted natural healing, changes in lifestyle urged by the homeopath, the placebo effect, and cessation of harmful treatments are more probable causes of improved health.This being the case, he pursues the question why so many people continue to believe that the remedies themselves are responsible. Among the contributing factors Shelton notes: the plausible-sounding explanations of homeopathic theory, a fundamental misunderstanding among homeopaths of science and its methods, and, ultimately, the poor quality of education in critical thinking and science.This reasoned, balanced, and in-depth assessment will interest both homeopaths and conventional medical practitioners, as well as consumers curious about a well-known and much-publicized alternative medicine.Jay W. Shelton, Ph.D. (Santa Fe, NM), is a Harvard-educated physicist, a teacher of physics and physical sciences at Santa Fe Preparatory School, and president of Shelton Research.

Alice A. Kuzniar critically examines the alternative medical practice of homeopathy within the Romantic culture in which it arose. In The Birth of Homeopathy out of the Spirit of Romanticism, Kuzniar argues that Hahnemann was a product of his time rather than an iconoclast and visionary.
This book, a basic work on anamnesis according to Creative Homeopathy, uses the language of symptoms, evolved over the years from symptoms and psychological significance of body language, to understand conflict descriptions. Compiled from exact observations in the spirit of Hahnemann, and with as much psychological depth as possible, this language has now become one of the essential pillars of Creative Homeopathy®.
Homeopathy: "If you work with an illness instead of wrestling against it, it can guide you through the expression of your symptoms to a life that is truly healthy in body, mind, and spirit." Healing: "To believe in healing is to believe that change can come about in your life like spontaneous combustion, that you can catch health just as you can disease." And You: "We have an invisible nature that defies chemical compositions and that allows us understanding of more than just physical creation." There is a hidden wisdom in our bodies and in our illnesses. If we can begin to change our thinking and to live our lives homeopathically, we can find healing without taking any medicines, homeopathic or allopathic. Vinton McCabe, a preeminent voice in homeopathy, will show people how to start on the path to this healing.

Homeopathy is an alternative, complementary, cost effective, and very safe Healing System for infants to old-age. During early period of 20th century, it was practiced parallel to the conventional (allopathic) System. It is widely practiced in Germany, UK, India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. The classical books on Homeopathy, published before the 1900s, describe often in obsolete medical terms, the theory, philosophy and symptoms of provings (drug testing). They are deficient in application methods to find the correct homeopathic remedy easily. They have little reference to pathological changes in tissues. In practice, different patients express their symptoms in different words, even though suffering from same disease. It is often difficult to find the correct homeopathic remedy, based on the patient’s symptoms alone. K. Robinson, MD, a contemporary expert, wrote in an editorial The Cutting Edge, “I suppose, the overwhelming drive in the practice of homeopathy is toward precision in prescribing. Because the accurate prescribing is so difficult, we find ourselves studying constantly, and yet we never feel complete.” (J.A.I.H, vol. 79, #1, March, 1986). This book, Homeopathy in Practice - Clinical Insights into Homeopathy and Remedies, offers the practical aspects, and clinical keynotes on remedies related to various illnesses, backed by successful reports, from journals, books, personal discussions and experiences of others. This book will help to find the correct remedy easily. Just refer to the relevant Heading in the Contents. Go to the associate page(s), and glance through the keynotes of remedies. You will often spot the correct homeopathic remedy.
