I am a physician who has very recently developed an interest in homeopathy, after my 15-year long migraine responded dramatically to homeopathic treatment. I have been looking for a book that will help me understand this wonderful and exceedingly intricate art and science. Dr. Lockie's book is by far the best for someone who is not a homeopathic practitioner, but does want accurate and detailed information on the subject. This book has helped me understand homeopathic philosophy. I have been able to accurately identify constitutional remedies for friends and family using this book. I have also made good use of the section on common complaints and remedies for acute prescribing. The layout, color photographs and pictures are breathtakingly beautiful. I have bought multiple copies for friends and family. This book will prove to be a welcome addition to anyone's library - be they practitioners, beginners or novices to the art!
