For those intrigued with, but understandably confused by, the hoopla surrounding this increasingly popular field of alternative medicine, Healing with Homeopathy is the perfect primer. Homeopathy, an approach to healing that at its core is concerned with stimulating the body's internal healing response, has a 200-year history in Europe and America, colorfully illustrated here. (Its demise in the U.S. was mostly due to heavy regulation and suppression by the American Medical Association after 1846.)
The authors, both traditionally trained medical doctors, have witnessed the power of homeopathy for treating digestive disorders, common colds, respiratory ailments, headaches, emotional disturbances, childhood illnesses such as colic, and women's health problems including menstrual cramps and morning sickness. They stress that homeopathy is designed to help the body cure itself, not just a way to alleviate the symptoms of illness like many allopathic treatments. For example, taking Tylenol for a headache will help numb the pain, but won't fix the cause of your headache. The homeopathic treatment of yellow jasmine (gelsemium) or Kali bichromicum, however, gets to the source of the pain, be it sinus pressure or emotional stress. It is this approach that makes homeopathy effective for chronic health conditions.
Besides covering home treatment for everything from the flu to diaper rash to postpartum depression, the book also includes treatment sources, summaries of scientific studies that measured the percentages of patients who were helped by homeopathy, and a handy chart of symptoms and homeopathic treatments.
