From the Book

There is nothing new about rheumatism or arthritis. Examination of Egyptian mummies reveals that rheumatism affected their joints too.

Phyllis Speight, however, offers treatment that is different. Homoeopathic remedies are described together with potency and dosage; therefore prescribing is easily understood.

Herbal medicines and teas are suggested and there are chapters on Vitamins, Epsom Salt Baths, the New Zealand Green-Lipped Mussel, avoiding Constipation, and last but not least, the Importance of Thinking Positively.

Phyllis Speight and her husband Leslie were lay-people in the UK who carried on a practice, ran a publishing business and taught many courses. They were two of the many responsible for keeping homeopathy alive in the UK during the 1940s and 1950s.
