$12.95Add a review
This is one of the two guides to homeopathic medicine that helped me raise my children. I found it over 20 years ago, when it was one of the only books written for the layperson wanting to use these simple and highly effective remedies for themselves and their family. The text and explanations are uncluttered, the information clear and empowering. I especially love the remedy charts, set out by category of illness. These make it very easy, even in the middle of the night while tending to a child with a suddenly high fever, to identify which symptoms fit the pictures of the home remedies covered in this book. I still use it and can't recommend it highly enough.
Homeopathic Medicine for Children and Infants

This is an excellent resource for parents wanting to use natural healing methods that support the bodies response to illness. The first half is organized by common ailments and includes accessible descriptions of the symptoms addressed by the various homeopathic medicines. Each ailment also includes clear guidelines on when to seek medical attention. The second half of Homeopathic Medicine for Children and Infants is the most thorough Materia Medica of common remedies that I have ever found in a book written for home use. Several pages are devoted to each remedy, including meaningful descriptions of the plants or substances used. For this alone, I consider the book to have earned its place on anyone's bookshelf.

In Prozac Free, homeopathic physicians Dr. Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Dr. Robert Ullman offer compelling reasons for considering the homeopathic approach as an alternative to taking conventinoal medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, Pxil, and Wellbutrin. The authors discuss the serious side effects of these drugs and their failure to treat the underlying causes of depression, anxiety, and other mental and emotional problems. Using case histories from their own practice, they demonstrate the long-term success rate of homeopathic remedies and the advantages of homeopathic treatment, including:
- Safer, more effective treatment for depression, anxiety, phobias, grief, mood swings, and other mental and emotional disorders
- Highly effective and completely natural alternatives to antidepressants and other psychiatric medications
- A medical appraoch that treats you as an individual rather than a diagnosis
- Practitioners who are genuinely interested in getting to the root cause of your problems
- Medications that are free of side effects and specifically tailored to your needs
- Treatment that eases your state of mind and improves your physical health and overall well-being
The Alchemy of Healing
Psyche and Soma
Edward C. Whitmont, MD
$16.95Add a review
This book is a wonderful example of what can happen when a deep, unified view of the human being is brought to bear on the basic questions of health and life. Whitmont is both a Jungian psychiatrist with a deep knowledge of the weavings of myth in the human psyche and an experienced homeopath with years of working with disease.
In 1993 he brought all his expertise together in this landmark work that clearly articulates the esoteric role of the physician in the dram of life and death. Taking a daring plunge into the paradoxes of homeopathic medicine, psychoanalytic transference, quantum physics, and the Gaia Hypothesis, Whitmont deftly explores such subjects as Jungian synchronicity, alchemy, the I Ching and the Law of Similars. He hints at the unknown principles fusing organism, planet, and cosmos and at a healing principle so profound it is written in both the stars and the submolecular traces of molecules.
Whitmont provides a forum for one of the most neglected voices of Western Civilization - that of disease - revealing how it is our own abandoned and depreciated voice. In challenging the myth of mechanical medicine he provides a clue as to how we might yet heal ourselves and our planet.
Absolutely fascinating and richly rewarding reading!
