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. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

HASH(0xa4e342e8) out of 5 stars Homoeopathy for the First Aider July 19 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a "must have" book on classical homoeopathy for anyone studying the subject. The very first book I purchased on homoeopathy. First written in 1945, Dr. Dorothy Shepherd, tells of her experiences during W.W.I with surgery, and in her own practice and how she had used homoeopathic remedies. She covers first aid treatment of such topics as treatment of wounds, hemorrhage, burns, scalds, aches and pains. She also discusses potency and give specific "rules" for giving a remedy. She has written several other wonderfully informative books, however, this one I consider a must have.

HASH(0xa4e34690) out of 5 stars Arnica for Stroke helped my friend March 22 2010
By Linda J. Schiller-Hanna - Published on
Format: Paperback
It just happened that I'd been reading the first chapter of this book which mentioned
arnica for stroke when my dear friend ended up in the hospital with one. I took him the
arnica (it was found in the bedding) and there was a bit of a I faxed the
proper pages (9/10) to the doctor and it was allowed and approved. The good news, my
friend recovered beautifully.
This alone was worth the small price of this book.
Even if you are not a student of homeopathy (it will get you excited)...the book is
excellent and helpful.
I've turned to it many times.
Highly recommended!

HASH(0xa4e34774) out of 5 stars a life saver March 18 2012
By ColorStuff - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I would give this book 5 stars in a heartbeat if the dosing were a bit more precise. People who do not know that this extraordinary help is available are seriously handicapped. My family has used homeopathy for decades with stunning success. It is downright criminal that doctors and dentists are ignorant of the most basic remedies like arnica, ruta, ledum and hypericum. Criminal.

HASH(0xa4e34a2c) out of 5 stars Homeopathic source book July 24 2010
By Eric H. Borman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent case stories of homeopathic usage. I have bought 2 copies. One to keep and one to lend out. I recommend this as a good basic starter as I have used homeopathics for over 40 years. This book is one my most used references. In the use of Arnica, I have watched a person going into shock from a machinery accident. When given a dose of Arnica I saw that person come out of shock. I have had a similar experience after having cut my finger on a table saw. I happened to see this for sale as a Kindle and downloaded it immediately for my lap top.

HASH(0xa4e345d0) out of 5 stars Homepathy 101 Aug. 25 2009
By Estheruth - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A very complete book written at a time when antibiotics were not the norm. I appreciate the candor, the openness and frankness the author uses -- also some of the language is amusing. I appreciate what this female Dr. had to go through during a time in history that was very tough, and all the case histories she gathered to make this book outstanding. Much insite gained. Good reference.
