DetailsDr Douglas Borland presented the material in this book as a course to doctors at the London Homeopathic Hospital during the nineteen-thirties. Dr Kathleen Priestman, who attended the course at the beginning of her medical career, edited it for publication.
Dr Borland's homeopathic insight remains as fresh and important today as it ever was.
Wherever current medical practice has moved on since his day, notably in the availability of antibiotics and the development of modern surgical techniques, the text has been edited to take this into account.
