This book offers an original perspective on comparative materia medica, incorporating information on newer and less understood remedies within a framework of well known remedies. It clarifies and systematises our study of material media, allowing us to navigate the complexities of material media study more effectively.
There are 36 chapters, each one focusing on a well known remedy, giving an initial summary and utilising a three stage development for each remedy - intrinsic, compensated, decompensated - that relates to the three fundamental miasms of Psora, Sycosis and Syphilis. Each remedy is compared and discussed within this framework, weaving comparisons and many other remedies in the process.
There are discussions of remedies from all realms: animals such as insects, birds, mammals and sea remedies; common and unusual mineral and metal remedies and plants and fungi. Remedies from the virus and bacteria families and imponderabilia are compared, always looking at possible connections to well-proven and documented remedies.
This book offers a bridge; it allows for the exploration of new areas of homeopathic knowledge and seeks to ground our existing knowledge into a coherent pattern so the practice of homeopathy can be objectively applied and verified.
