This book will be a great addition to your homeopathic library. Once you've been using homeopathics for a while, and begin to work on a deeper level with them, you'll wonder which (for instance) liver remedy is really the one you need, when there are several which might be right. This book is the book that gives the particular spiritual/psychological picture of the remedies that will let you decide. for instance: "Chelidonium refuses to see clearly, refuses to see the truth ... Chelidonium individuals are energetic realists, practical and anti-intellectual..." "Lycopodium individuals want to recover the power, strength and dignity that have been lost..." "Lilium Tigrinum ... they escape their basic metaphysical anxiety by working to the point of exhaustion..." "Magnesia carbonica .. for children who are abandoned by their parents." The actual remedy pictures are presented in more detail, including physical indicators. I've only quoted a few highlights to give you the flavor of the remedy pictures. This book is an excellent resource any homeopathic user's library, and deserves a place on the shelf with your copy of Boericke's Materia Medica & Tyler's Homeopathic Drug Pictures.

I love this book. I am a student of homeopathic medicine and I think, by reading this book, you get an actual sense of exactly how a homeopathic practices works. You can read it like a short esseys. He gives a 'name' to each remedy. This famed French Dr. works with mainly low potencies and works miracles. I think the main thrill of this book for me is absorbing his capacity for 'listening' to his patiences and 'hearing' what they are saying, in order to use homeopathics with the utmost success. His intuition is what homeopathics are all about. A treasured, oft-refered to book.

As a licensed naturopathic doctor in New York I know a fair bit about homoepathy. It has been my main method of treatment for at least five years. When I read this book by Dr. Grandgeorge I was awestruck. Here is a doctor that has already been where I am in my understanding of the remedies. Not only has he been where I am, but his experience, compassion and intellligence have obviously taken him far beyond. His insights to the remedies have the clarity that can only be attained by being a master in the field. I have not often been impressed by the skill level of various doctors (natural & conventional) that I have met. I was extreemely impressed by this book. Experienced homeopaths or those new to homeopathy would do well to make this a part of their library. I refer to it often.
