I did not truly understand homeopathy until I read this new translation, this beautifully and wisely edited edition. The insights I gained reading it I can only liken to religious revelations. I now have an understanding of healing and cure that will guide me for the rest of my life. O'Reilly and Decker have taken a dense work of absolute genius and made it accessible to anyone who wants to understand the meaning of health and the gift of life.

and his translation of the Organon has taken homeopathy and homeopathic prescribing light-years ahead in this work of art, edited by O'Reilly.
After a century or two of misunderstandings of Hahnemann's writings, at last there is a glimpse of Hahnemann's genial gift to mankind. I await further illumination of this medical system from Mr. Decker!

I frequently return from visits to the family physician with the vague feeling that I am dealing with a very peculiar form of healing. There seems to be little sense of "the ankle bone being connected to the knee bone" in modern medicine. Millions of people have registered their opinions in this regard by visiting alternative medical practictioners. But why does alternative medicine work? What are the dynamics of its very real affects? How does the science of Homeopathy work?
Wenda O'Reilly has given us the definitive translation of the homeopathic bible, The Organon of the Medical Art and a handle on the new metaphysics that needs to be engaged for medicine to become the healing art not just of malfunction but of health. All public health officials and anyone interested in medicine should read this book. This is science rendered into beauty by art.

THIS IS THE ONLY REAL WAY TO LEARN THE HOMOEOPATHY AS A WAY TO CURE, TO CURE FOR EVER A PERSON. NO ONE MAY SAY "IAM A HOMEOPATHIST..." AND HAVE NOT READED THIS BOOK MANY TIMES (AND MUST READ IT FOR THE REST HIS/HER LIFE), BECAUSE ITS A NEVER END BOOK. EVERY THING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HOMOEOPATHY WILL BE FOUND HERE, AND WHAT YOU WILL ASK IN FUTURE IS ALSO HERE...THE SAMUEL HAHNEMANN'S GENIAL BOOK.
