If someone pointed a gun at you and demanded that you give them money, you could go to the police and have the thief charged with a criminal offence. If someone claimed that they could prevent or treat a life-threatening disease and charged you $200 per litre for water to do the job, you would waste your time going to the police because this is called “homeopathy” and there are no criminal sanctions against it. I find it impossible to believe that the people promoting this scam are not aware that it is fraud. I do not believe for a moment that anyone follows the manufacturing process that would be required to produce the extreme dilutions claimed on product labels. Why would you bother to spend money on all that diluting and succussing when the exact same effect can be achieved by filtering some tap water and putting it into small bottles?

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect introduction to Homeopathy! 3 July 1999
By AMac97 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is the best book on Homeopathy I have ever seen (and I have seen quite a few!). The design, layout, photos, graphics, charts, and text are amazingly well done, and perfect for anyone just getting started in Homeopathy. Everything important is cross referenced, and anyone can use the book to self-prescribe homeopathic remedies for minor illnesses. The book is a joy to read, and I have read some of the sections many times already!

5.0 out of 5 stars No home should be without this indepth homeopathic tx guide 2 Jan. 1999
By pneil@jps.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've been studying books about homeopathy for some 25 yrs now. This book is by far the most complete, the best illustrated and most usable book on what homeopathy is, how it works, how to treat yourself and family easily and very effectively. We give this book 2 THUMBS UP. Beautifully executed....

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and complete 11 July 2000
By seeker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I use this book quiet a bit, aside from being absolutly beautifully done, with great charts and easy to reference orginization, it also has a very good test in it to determine your constitutional tyype. This is an often overlooked part of homeopathy but a very important part. Constitutionl typing gives you a better starting point for treating the whole person, raising your energy and helping you become more true to yourself. I highly recommend this book for anyone taking homeopathy on thier own. Thanks :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Coffee Table Homeopathy with Bite 5 Dec. 2006
By Dr. Richard G. Petty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
At first sight homeopathy appears to be absurd: it talks about a vital force; of like curing like and super-dilute remedies containing not one molecule of the original substance. All of these are enough to strain anyone's credulity. The trouble is that there is a small amount of empirical research indicating that it may actually work, as well as two centuries of clinical experience indicating that it is a good deal more than a placebo.

This is a very nice book: beautifully produced and with a surprising amount of detail. Many of the better known remedies are discussed and there are helpful photographs illustrating the physical appearance most often associated with particular medicines.

This is clearly intended to be an introduction to what can be a vast field of study. There are literally thousands of books on homeopathy and it takes years to master the topic. But it is possible to learn the basics from this book and to begin to use a few of the more common remedies. The other point is that the book will give you a very good idea of the kinds of questions asked by a homeopath. That in itself is valuable: people are often perturbed to be asked about the precise time of day when their symptoms occur, their favorite colors and whether they like or dislike certain foods.

If you have any interest in holistic heath care in general and homeopathy in particular this terrific place to start. The book is handsome, and though not comprehensive, it gives you enough to see if this therapy seems right for you.

Highly recommended.

By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Excellent book with good presentation without getting excessively technical. Easy and interesting to read and apply; allows one to understand the symptoms also much better, and can help in self treatment and also for explaining to the doctor your symtoms much better.
A MUST READ AND OWN.
