From the Book

This book sets before the reader the enthusiasm, learning and deep clinical understanding of one of the foremost homoeopaths of our time.

Classical Homoeopathy draws into one volume Dr. Blackie's teaching over the whole span of her career.

The first part describes the thinking behind homoeopathy and the principles on which the successful homoeopathic prescription is based, with its recognition of the sick person as a body, mind and spirit relationship, bound inseparably as one.

The major constitutional remedies are then studied in detail, either individually or differentiated within groups of related remedies.

This is followed by the symptomatic treatment of illness or disability, analysing each of the remedies that may be of value, and distinguishing the particular circumstances in which one remedy is likely to be indicated in preference to another.

Next there is a compact materia medica, summarising the essential characteristics of one hundred and eleven major remedies.

The final part comprises a clinical repertory, relating symptoms to remedies already discussed in the book, and an index of remedies.

Margerie Blackie, MD

(1898 -  1981)

Margery Grace Blackie was born at Redbourn, Hertfordshire, England in 1898.

Dr. Blackie qualified in medicine at the London School of Medicine for Women in 1923, and in the following year joined the staff of the London Homoeopathic Hospital. Here she came under the teaching influence of John Henry Clarke, Charles Wheeler and Douglas Borland, himself a former student of James Tyler Kent.

She obtained her M.D. from the University of London in 1928. During her career she combined a busy homoeopathic general practice with her hospital work, which culminated in her appointment in 1966 as Honorary Consultant Physician to the Royal London Homoeopathic Hospital.

She was Dean of the Faculty of Homoeopathy from 1965 to 1979. She was appointed Physician to H.M. the Queen in 1968. She was admired by her patients for her concerned approach, kindness, and skill.

It is as a brilliant teacher, whose vivid descriptions of various constitutional types of patients became engraved in the minds of her listeners, that her undergraduate and postgraduate students remember her. It was this deep understanding of the characteristics of the individual remedy that formed the basis of her international reputation

Dr. Blackie died in 1981.

Excerpted from D.P. Rastogi's Homeopathic Gems.
