DetailsThe new edition is revised and expanded showing how to use homeopathy in the everyday context of personal and family health care.
It covers 116 problems that a layperson is quite likely to encounter, either as first aid or else in a wide variety of complaints and disorders which may not be urgent but where relief and cure are sought.
From the BookDr Gemmell starts by describing the thinking behind homeopathic medicine, the emphasis it places on relating treatment to a proper assessment of each patient as an individual person, and its freedom from toxic side effects.
There is the necessary information on how to observe symptoms and select a remedy, as well as on potency and dosage.He presents the material in four sections - accidents and first aid, the problems of women, children's problems and general problems - explaining the nature of each problem and suggesting commonsense measures to be taken whatever else is done.
He then discusses the particular symptoms and personal circumstances, which may be present, using these to point to the appropriate homeopathic treatment.
He highlights the cases where self-treatment is out of place and medical advice must be sought without delay. He also highlights the cases where homeopathy may well provide more effective help than conventional medicine, but where self-treatment is equally inappropriate and a professional homeopathic evaluation should be obtained.
