This book will be a great addition to your homeopathic library. Once you've been using homeopathics for a while, and begin to work on a deeper level with them, you'll wonder which (for instance) liver remedy is really the one you need, when there are several which might be right. This book is the book that gives the particular spiritual/psychological picture of the remedies that will let you decide. With an unbelievable insight in some 300 homeopathic medicines Didier Grandgeorge gives us in a nutshell the essence (the spirit) of these remedies.
An invaluable guide for homeopaths and students of homeopathy! Renowned homeopathic counsellor and author, Liz Lalor lectures and writes on the symbiotic relationship between mental and emotional disturbance, and physical pathology. "A Psychological Analysis of the Delusion Rubrics" is an extensive Materia medica adaption of her second book "Homeopathic Psychiatry." In its original form, "Homeopathic Psychiatry" combined homeopathic rubric-repertorisation and traditional counselling techniques to create an invaluable case taking manual. "A Psychological Analysis of the Delusion Rubrics" expands on this with a revised introduction, new Denial chapter and extended Materia medica to address the narrative behind the physical pathology. Homeopathic analysis of disease concentrates on unearthing the peculiar within the patient's story of their life. In this fresh adaption, Lalor focuses attention on the denial process of the patient as they negotiate illness. The peculiar in the patient's narrative is the essence of the understanding of the use and meaning of the Delusion rubrics in case analysis. This book is an invaluable guide, both for homeopaths and students of homeopathy, to fully understand these previously misunderstood and underutilized rubrics in our repertory. ""Liz Lalor's book explores humanness within remedies and reflects the remedy back to the psychodynamic delusion. It makes a difference in understanding my client's needs with incorporating Elizabeth Kubler Ross's 5 stages of grief and guides me in the right direction of support. A wonderful desktop companion for my device and clinic desk."" Sally Bevan, Homeopath ""My entire understanding of delusion rubrics, how to decipher them, and subsequently how to apply them to my case-taking, changed considerably for the better once I had read this very insightful book. Liz's experience with psychotherapy, coupled with her deep understanding of remedies and their psychological profiles, has enabled her to author a book of great significance and profound assistance to the practising homeopath. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to more effectively understand the delusion rubrics, what they really mean and how to apply them in case analysis.""

In The Alchemy of Healing, Dr. Edward C. Whitmont explores the major themes of illness, health, and the practice of medicine. Uniquely qualified by his personal associations with such pioneers as Carl Jung, M. Esther Harding, Karl Konig, Elizabeth Wright Hubbard, and G.B. Stearns, Whitmont takes a daring plunge into the paradoxes of homeopathic medicine, psychoanalytic transference, quantum physics, and the Gaia Hypothesis. Deftly exploring such subjects as Jungian synchronicity, alchemy, the I Ching, and the Law of Similars, he hints at the unknown principles fusing organism, planet, and cosmos and at a healing principle so profound it is written in both the stars and the sub-molecular traces of molecules. In this landmark work that addresses for the first time in our century the esoteric role of the physician in the drama of life and death, Whimont provides a forum for one of the most neglected voices of Western Civilization—that of disease—revealing how it is our own abandoned and depreciated voice. In challenging the myth of mechanical medicine he provides a clue as to how we might yet heal ourselves and our planet.
The overall discussion in this book is supported by twenty-two case histories & concludes with a compact materia medica of forty-two remedies which the author has found to be of value in his own experience, studied under the headings of their characteristic physical, mental & general symptoms.

This book discusses the perception of disease, healing concepts and the evolution of traditional systems of healing in the Himalayas of Himachal Pradesh, India. The chapters cover a diverse range issues: people and knowledge systems, healing in ancient scriptures, concept of sacredness and faith healing, food as medicament, presumptions about disease, ethno-botanical aspects of medicinal plants, collection and processing of herbs, traditional therapeutic procedures, indigenous Materia medica, etc. The book also discusses the diverse therapeutic procedures followed by Himalayan healers and their significance in the socio-cultural life of Himalayan societies. The World Health Organization defines traditional medicine as wisdom, skills, and practices based on theories, beliefs, and experiences indigenous to different cultures, used in the prevention, diagnosis, improvement or treatment of physical and mental illness and maintenance of health. In some Asian and African countries, 80% of the population depends on traditional medicine for primary health care. However, the knowledge of these conventional healing techniques and traditions associated with conveying this knowledge are slowly disappearing. The authors highlight the importance of safeguarding this indigenous knowledge in the cultural milieu of the Himachal Himalayas. This book will be an important resource for researchers in medical anthropology, biology, ethno-biology, ecology, community health, health behavior, psychotherapy, and Himalayan studies.

How can we help poor people earn more from their knowledge rather than from their sweat and muscle alone? This book is about increasing the earnings of poor people in poor countries from their innovation, knowledge, and creative skills. Case studies look at the African music industry; traditional crafts and ways to prevent counterfeit crafts designs; the activities of fair trade organizations; biopiracy and the commercialization of ethnobotanical knowledge; the use of intellectual property laws and other tools to protect traditional knowledge. The contributors' motivation is sometimes to maintain the art and culture of poor people, but they recognize that except in a museum setting, no traditional skill can live on unless it has a viable market. Culture and commerce more often complement than conflict in the cases reviewed here. The book calls attention to the unwritten half of the World Trade Organization's Agreement on the Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property (TRIPS). TRIPS is about knowledge that industrial countries own, and which poor people buy. This book is about knowledge that poor people in poor countries generate and have to sell. It will be of interest to students and scholars of international trade and law, and to anyone with an interest in ways developing countries can find markets for cultural, intellectual, and traditional knowledge.

Horses for sport, companionship and work are considered and ways of improving their welfare by better training and management is described.
