Product Description

About the Author

Dr. Dorothy Shepherd grew up in South India where her father was a missionary. She studied medicine at Heidelberg medical school and in 1906, and went on to study at the Hering Medical College in Chicago. Her teachers were Dienst and Tomhagen, both pupils of famous homoeopathic physician, James Tyler Kent. Dr. Shepherd wrote several books on homoeopathy based on her clinical experience including, Homoeopathy for the 1st Aider and Magic of the Minimum Dose. In the 1940s she established a homoeopathic center in Bramshott, England. Dr Shepherd passed away in November 1952 after 45 years of service to homoeopathy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly Major Medical Breakthrough Jan. 29 2011
By James R. Pannozzi - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has been known for decades and the esteemed physician, Dr. Dorothy Shepherd, makes explicit claims about the possibility of treating epidemic disease with Homeopathic methodologies and treatments. In addition, Shepherd also outlines the possibility of utilization of Homeopathic remediation as an active agent for prophylaxis for certain epidemic disease. She gives, for example, explicit example of her utilization of various Homeopathic remedies for simple, dramatic, and apparently, effective treatment of cases of whooping cough in children. And she goes on to mention her attempts, apparently successful, to utilize Homeopathic remedies for the prevention of whooping cough.

It is long overdue that claims of this kind get the scientific attention and studies that they deserve. The peremptory dismissal of such claims on merely theoretical grounds, subsumes a non-existent level of knowledge and does little more than assuage the ego of the armchair scientist, pseudo sceptic and doctrinaire anti-alternative medicine crusader, eager to write the next "best" seller about how it is all nonsense and that people like Dr. Shepherd were out to "fool" everyone.

A more rational approach to these cases is to acknowledge the long experience and dedication of the Doctor, admit that some sort of curative effect is likely operative rather than descend to the easy and non-thinking paternalization of placebo claims, and then begin to organize and call for the proper scientific analysis of what could potentially be a major medical breakthrough. That such a breakthrough might prove anathema to vaccine manufacturers and "guardians" of "conventional" medicine, is of no consequence and no influence on the potential of the preventative and curative medicine which Shepherd proposes.

Until that scientific analysis is done, the ideas and practices proposed in the book will remain a tantalizing and intriguing possibility, still utilized by those with the courage to step into the realm of the unknown, and still disparaged by those who lack that courage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! April 10 2015
By Karen - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very fascinating! Couldn't put the book down. I especially love and appreciate it even more when it was written by someone who lived during the earlier time of when she personally experienced these epidemics and how she was able to see first hand the different results between modern medicine at that time compared to homeopathic treatment with these diseases.
