I thought homeopaths were quacks. July 12 2007
By Alan C. Baird - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was never seriously ill during most of my life, but a stubborn case of no-external-trigger urticaria (hives) has been plaguing me for nearly a year. I've visited one regular doctor, one osteopath, two emergency room docs, three allergists, and three acupuncturists. They were all unable to cure the hives, but the allergists finally brought my symptoms under control with a powerful hellbroth of prescription drugs:

1 Prednisone (steroid, immunosuppressant) 20mg pill in the morning
1 Tagamet (Cimetidine, H2 antihistamine) 300mg pill in the morning
1 Allegra (Fexofenadine, H1 antihistamine) 180mg pill in the morning
1 Zyrtec (Cetirizine HCl, H1 antihistamine) 10mg pill in the afternoon
1 Atarax (Hydroxyzine HCl, H1 antihistamine) 25mg pill at bedtime
3 Doxepin (antidepressant, sedative) 10mg pills at bedtime
1 Tagamet 300mg pill at bedtime
1 Prednisone 20mg pill at bedtime

Plus, I had to carry an emergency epinephrine (adrenaline) syringe everywhere, just in case my precariously-balanced immune system tipped into anaphylactic shock.

One of the allergists provided me with a light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel newsflash: "These cases usually burn themselves out in three to five years."

But if you take Prednisone for a long time, you tend to gain a lot of weight, and your immune response is slowly crippled. The allergists tried to cut down the Prednisone gradually, but my hives always returned with a vengeance. [A minor bout with urticaria is much like being flayed alive... and after experiencing several full-blown major attacks, I wouldn't wish one on my worst enemy.] I was clinically depressed, and marginally suicidal.

My doctors thought I was doing great, considering.

Since the AMA and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) practitioners couldn't really help, I turned to homeopaths as a last resort. Even though I had always viewed homeopathy as a marginal--if not totally quack--science, I was at the end of my rope and desperate enough to try anything.

After a few homeopathic treatments, my drug regimen is now down to:

1 Prednisone 2.5mg pill (1/16 of my previous daily intake) in the afternoon
1 Benadryl 25mg pill (over-the-counter antihistamine) at bedtime

These doctors are determined to wean me off drugs completely, God bless 'em. Needless to say, I now highly recommend homeopaths. And they recommended that I read Homeopathy: Beyond Flat Earth Medicine, for an overview.

I wish I'd read it a year ago.

At Last! Jan. 20 2000
By Marilyn Piper-Brosch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a patient of homeopathy for the last ten years with excellent results. In talking with my friends, however, I often had trouble putting the theories into words that they could understand. This book solves that problem! It is eminently readable for the new homeopathic patient or simply the person who is curious about what homeopathy has to offer. I highly recommend it!

Homeopathy Beyond Flat Earth Medicine Jan. 23 2002
By Nicole Ingra, Lic., L.C.C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The author explains in plain simple English the history and usage of homeopathy. For anyone curious about homeopathy, this short book is a must. The author explains the differences between allopathic (chemical medicine) and homeopathic, he also touches upon why there is such opposition in modern medical and pharmaceutical circles regarding something so "ordinary" and inexpensive.

best intro to classical homeopathy Sept. 17 2007
By Christina Rovics - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My homeopathist recommended reading this book before my first visit. My experience was so successful that I ordered several more books to lend to family, friends, and acquaintances who show an interest in homeopathy. This book really prepares you to get the most out of the homeopathic interview and cooperate with the healing process.

Dooley does a good job in taking some of the mystery out of the topic of holistic medical science. Feb. 12 2010
By Blaine Greenfield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Can you treat patients with heavily diluted preparations which are thought to cause
effects similar to the symptoms presented?

You can if you believe the holistic medical science called homeopathy . . . I'm not sure
that I do, but wanting to know more about the subject, I read an informative book
called HOMEOPATHY: BEYOND FLAT EARTH MEDICINE by Dr. Timothy R. Dooley
(a family physician).

Dooley does a good job in taking some of the mystery out of the topic, presenting
some history along the way . . . he also presented several case studies, which
I found interesting, along with this recommendation:

* The best way to get results is to make homeopathy your primary form of therapy. That
is to say, homeopathy is what you think of first and pursue first in your healthcare needs.

As a medical doctor, I say with conviction that conventional medicine is what should be
used secondarily, as a backup to homeopathy, and not the other way around. A patient
should first give their system a chance to heal naturally and only resort to drug therapy
when truly necessary.

He goes on to point out:

* Patients who want results with homeopathy, or any form of therapy for that matter, need
to be committed. This means following the advice of the practitioner, scheduling follow-up
appointments as directed, and working with the practitioner when problems arise.

After reading HOMEOPATHY, I'm not quite willing to go that route with respect
to my medical treatment . . . however, I'm at least open to the possibility that
it may work for some folks--and if that's the case, I'm glad for them.
