Product Description

Review

"...a consumers' guide to treating minor ailments without drugs..."
—New York Times

"This is both a general introduction to and a manual of homeopathy...illustrated by examples from Panos' practice and clear enough for a novice to follow."
—Kirkus Reviews
 
"Finally, a sensible substantial book about homeopathy. I've been using it in my family for years and have hoped that someone would write just this kind of common sense introduction.... With this book you can understand the principles, order your own remedies, and test the results."
James Fadiman, Ph.D., Co-Evolution Quarterly
 
Homeopathic Medicine at Home is a great book that I use almost on a daily basis. I like this one as it's laid out in short, easy to read chapters, there are charts listing remedies, symptoms and tips to help pick the remedy for each situation.”
—Modern Hippie

Format: Paperback
Of all the homeopathic books written for the general public, this is one of the most useful. If you've suffered a minor injury, or come down with a cold, flu or earache, or if you are having an upset stomach, this book will quickly guide you to the correct remedy. It is easily understood by the medical layperson, and it will give you solid knowledge of how to treat yourself and others in a safe, natural way, without the risks, side-effects and costs of conventional drugs.
It goes without saying that any self-help book, no matter how good, does not replace the care of a medical professional. If you have a serious or chronic condition, and you think that homeopathy can help, go see a qualified homeopathic practitioner.

This is an excellent book overall and is the text for the National Center for Homeopathy's study group course. Dr. Panos gives verbose, anecdotal images of the differences between the different remedies for a given ailment, as well as good general background on homeopathy.

My over-all favorite May 4 2005
By Leslie Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have been studying homeopathy for 30 years & when I do not have time to fully repertorize an illness (which is almost NEVER with anything acute these days!) this book is my first resource. It seems to cover most acute illnesses & is especially good for treating colds, flu, stings, gas, teething problems, sore throats, etc....

I would like to see a better cross-referenced Index, but the numerous charts supplied somewhat make up for this short-coming - making it pretty easy to locate the problem/illness without too much difficulty. It also contains a nice little Materia Medica in the back -- so if you can't decide between several remedies this will help narrow the choice as it gives the specifics for the remedy as opposed to the main part of the book which gives the recommended remedies for the illiness.

I often back it up with "Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines" by Stephen Cummings & Dana Ullman - but if I had to choose only one book to purchase I would go with the book I am reviewing.

Another small short-coming of the book is it doesn't cover CELL SALTS as completely as needed (although, to be fair, no "quick-guide" homeopathic book does - with any depth anyway). which is why I would recommend the companion book: "Natural Healing with Cell Salts" by Dr. Skye Weintraub. Personally, I have found cell salts to work extremely well in conjunction with homeopathic remedies. Even though I practice the principals of classical homeopathy (ONE remedy at a time - changing the remedy until you find the one that works, & change remedies as soon as symptoms change &/or the current remedy no longer works) I still like to combine a homeopathic remedy with a cell salt. (A good example here would be a fever with a flushed face: homeopathic remedy might be Belladonna, and add the cell salt - Ferr Phos.)

Over-all I couldn't give the book 5 stars due to the inadequate Index and less-than-stellar coverage of CELL SALTS, but for my money, this is still a best-bet!

If you are new to homeopathy I can not encourage you enough to pursue this wonderful means of natural healing! And if you are a Christian, I urge you NOT to get hung up on the aspect of energetic healing until you learn more about the principals. I am a Christian who have seen ignorant fellow-Christians shrink at the idea of homeopathics as if they were some kind of voodoo. This is simply a fear-driven response that hopefully will be re-evaluated.

Anyone interested in pursuing the principals of healing through homeopathic medicine, more in-depth, would do well to purchase the book "The Science of Homeopathy" by George Vithoulkas and also get a Materia Medica by Boerricke and a "Repertory" by J. T. Kent. You could also call your local naturopath & ask if they offer classes. Anyone can learn homeopathy. I began when my children were born and they never had to take antibiotics more than once throughout their entire childhoods. They are now all adults who practice homeopathy with their own families, and this is the first homeopathic book I gave them as a gift when they moved into their new homes (along with a basic supply of remedies). Good luck, and God bless.

I am just starting out in homeopathy, so take this into account. I love this book, it has charts in it that have quick reference that lists the remedy, specific indications, general symptoms, worse from and better from categories. It is perfect for me as a beginner!

Men Don't have Health issues? May 7 2013
By pd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm not a politically correct person, but as a single male retiree interested in learning about homeopathy this book was a huge disappointment. There are sections on homeopathy for babies, growing children and women, but nothing on issues for men. Often as we age for example prostate issues can arise. There is a section on urinary problems - IN PREGNANCY. The real insult is there is a section on homeopathic solutions for PETS! I wonder what else this book is missing? I returned for refund.
