I'm a naturopathic medical student, studying homeopathy, and this book was indispensible at giving both a clear overall impression of the various major constitutional types, and also a detailed outline for reference at the end of each chapter. I know I will be using this book often in my practice. Not only does he draw from various sources (repertories and materia medica) but also adds indisoensable original information from his successful practice.

Wonderful description of homeopathic constitutions May 21 2011
By jody1107 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book for reference after reading the reviews on Amazon. I received the book - Used - like new - in 4 days. Very happy with the shipping time and product description.

About the book itself, it gives a detailed description of 7 remedies, under the headings Mental/Emotional Characteristics, Physical Symptomatology, Physical Generals, Notes, Outline symptoms, and Confirmatory Picture. Under Mental/Emotional Characteristics, the author explains in detail each symptom of the remedy's mental picture, while comparing it with other remedies. Under Physical Symptomatology, the author uses sub-headings of each organ system to explain the remedy. The chapter on Physical Generals gives us the generalities that run through the remedy and also the aggravating and ameliorating factors. The chapters Notes and Confirmatory Picture are a summary of the whole drug picture. Overall, this is a very good book that every homeopath must read and re-read for a thorough understanding of homeopathic children's types.

A must have for those that do homeopathy... April 26 2008
By Jimmy M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have a few materia medicas that cover the remedies, but none do it as in depth as Herscu does. Granted there are only around 8 remedies covered, but he says that 80% of kids can be effectively treated with them. And because he only covers a few remedies, you really begin to really understand them. Because he uses cases examples to illustrate his points, the book is a hard one to put down for the most part. Great book!

help for diagnosis at home Oct. 21 2007
By Bettina W - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I guess if you want to get better at diagnosing your children's constitution you have to become a homepath. And if they get really sick it is better to seek out professional homeopaths or pediatricians. However, this book is very helpful if you are interested in keeping your kids in a healthy balance naturally. So far it is working for my kids.

Great reference; can be a little overwhelming. June 23 2012
By F. Osborne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book several years ago when I began transitioning my oldest son from a mostly allopathic approach to his common ailments (seasonal allergies, and cough-variant asthma). I devoured the book, and loved the detail that went into it, but ultimately found it a little hard to apply. This is not so much a fault of the book as it is the simple fact that the author has basically distilled the entire knowledge of his schooling and years of practice into this one book. It might take a very experienced amateur (no, that's not a contradiction) to get any real use out of this book unless the child in need of treatment is exhibiting very distinct symptoms or signs. An experienced homeopath is a much more appropriate person to decide upon constitution than I am (shocking, I know), but I still pull this book out from time to time to see if my kiddo has developed enough to "fit in" to one of the constitutional types. Still, I consider this an excellent book for anyone committed to learning more about and employing home remedies and homeopathy.

My favorite thing about this book:

It is exhaustively cross-referenced. The index is quite thorough, there are symptom and characteristic outlines at the end of every section, and terms of interest are in bold print throughout the entire book.
