The author provides a systematic introduction to the principles of homoeopathic medicine, showing how remedy selection goes beyond the diagnosis of a condition to a perception of the patient as a whole and individual person. The homoeopathic materia medica is discussed in relation to the systems of the body and the patient's presenting complaints in a framework familiar to any doctor. The author discusses conditions in which homoeopathy is particularly useful, as well as those where orthodox and homoeopathic medicine may be applied together. 55 of the most important remedies are then described in detail. Dr Boyd has been President and Dean of the British Faculty of Homoeopathy.
