Product Description

"Darkness of absence of light is ignorance. From that total unknown, the character of the ailment (patient) emerges slowly through observation and information till it becomes clear white, which leads to the concept of remedies." This book is meant for those who have read "The Spirit of Homoeopathy" and & The Substance of Homoeopathy" because it is those earlier works that most fully express the author's understanding of Organon and Materia Medica without understanding his ideas on such things as case-taking, classification of remedies according to Kingdom, miasms, etc, this book will not be of much benefit. This work may be used as an adjunct to the previous works but not as a substitute for them. The reader who attempts to use this book without understanding the fundamental concepts may easily find himself lost without a compass. The author's idea of understanding a remedy is to grasp the connection that ties together its myriad symptoms: the basic delusion, its source (Kingdom), the miasm to which it belongs, its symptoms - all must be understood as aspects of a single whole if we are to even begin to truly understand a remedy. It is the author's attempt to trace out these connections that distinguishes this work from other Materia Medicas. The material presented here has been observed and confirmed in Dr. Sankaran's own practice, it is a material of which he is sure. He has not included remedies of which he has little experience or knowledge. Dr. Sankaran has attempted to convey the innermost feeling or the basic delusion of the remedy while connecting the situation, source, miasm and kingdom. The rubrics and physical symptoms cited are ones which he has repeatedly observed and often used to confirm the remedy prescribed.

Sankaran is to me the most influential and gifted homeopath, with an incredible ability to delve deeply into the absolute essence of the remedies to show us a no-nonsense picture of their essences. This book his take on 100 remedies and is a must for students and practitioners alike.

The Best Book On Homeopathy For Both Beginner and Advanced Practitioner! 11 April 2009
By Danny G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have been involved with homeopathy since the mid-1980's both personally and politically. I have seen a lot of great books on homeopathy over the years. I know writing a book review its hard to just say, "trust me, I know what I'm talking about!" But I do! I've never seen a book on homeopathy so well organized and to the point! I literally consider it a miracle that this book was lying open at a homeopathy education group meeting to the exact page describing an extremely rare remedy I may need! Besides listing extremely rare remedies, it lists remedies that have been recently proved, like Chocolate. Something older homeopathic books sorely lack. This book, in the right hands, could literally save a person's life! It's that good!

Disappointing book 10 Aug. 2014
By Margot Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
A very disappointing book. Only a few remedies are described, and even those descriptions are not particularly pithy. The book design is a real disgrace: poor print quality, poor paper, poor layout and design. i would not choose this book even if the price were lower.
