From the Author:

The health problems of children in the third world countries are something of great concern. Homoeopaths in their countries often have to work under the constraints of poor resources and a lack of access to the modern diagnostic aids.

Therefore, they require a more exhaustive training in clinical skills and a sharper clinical acumen. The present book is primarily aimed to fulfill this need. The book covers a total of 118 remedies, which have been used frequently by me in my practice.

I have not compiled this book using the 'Cut and Paste' technique, but rather have tried to incorporate the symptoms which I have observed in my practice and have observed excellent results. This has helped me to restrict the size of the book to a manageable level so that the practitioners may find it handy and useful.

From the Book

This plant comes from Malvaceae family and we commonly call this 'Hibiscus'. Dr. D. Legeritt from Mexico has given us a beautiful array of symptoms for this remedy.

This is one remedy which has tremendous fear and you may confuse this with Phosphorus, Calcarea carbonica or Crotalus cascavella.

Children are completely overwhelmed by fears of all sorts, which could be fear of animals, venomous animals, flies, insects, scorpions, snakes or spiders. The fear is so severe, to the extent that the child will try to hide and protect himself; so they close their doors and windows or may even stay awake the whole night till daylight strikes.

Darkness, night and being alone only exaggerate the existing fear of animals and insects. At the same time if these children are taken to any crowded place like cinemas or tourist places they become extremely nervous, anxious and fearful.

These children are extremely dull and lethargic in the morning but in the evening their energy level is high but again once darkness sets in, they develop a lot of fear and once again become dull.

These children, as I have seen, are extremely prone to epistaxis. They have a big appetite, especially for cold food and cold drinks.

This is one remedy which is very useful in children who are extremely nervous and anxious.

They lack self-confidence due to which they usually bite their nails and they suffer from frequent headaches. The headache is usually worse in the morning when they wake up.

These children love meat, oranges, sweets and eggs, but potato in any form aggravates. They are quite energetic and lively but somehow during their upbringing the ego remains quite weak and as a result their self confidence is affected.

They usually suffer from psoriasis on the skin, where the fingers are cracked.

Farokh Master MD

Dr. Masterís birth into homeopathy was in June of 1976, when he joined Bombay homeopathic medical college, after giving up his studies at the orthodox school of medicine.

In December of 1979, Dr. Master passed his LCEH examination, earning the most coveted silver as well as gold medal. He was also honored by the then-Governor of Maharashtra for an outstanding medical career.

In January, 1980, he joined the Bombay college as a junior lecturer in the department of medicine. He served as full-time house physician at the same time, and later became administrative medical officer, both first-of-their-kind posts.

In the following years, Dr. Master started giving seminars all over India and became one of the most popular teachers in the country. In 1986, Dr. Master was appointed as the professor in the department of medicine, at 29 years of age.

In 1985, he first started teaching abroad, which he continues to do. In 1991, Dr. Master joined MPK Homoeopathic medical college in Jaipur, Rajasthan, and completed his Doctor of Medicine in December, 1994. He graduated first in his class and became the countryís first M.D. Homeopath.

Dr. Master is also the first homeopath in the country to be selected by Mumbai University (Medical University of Maharashtra, Nasik) to do his Ph.D. in the subject of "Cancer & Homeopathy."

Dr. Master has been instrumental in starting homeopathic out-patient departments in many allopathic hospitals, viz. Bombay Hospital, KEM Hospital & Ruby Hall, Pune. Dr Master was the first person to introduce homeopathy in private and government sector hospitals, as well, including Tata Sons, ACC, BARC, Nuclear Cooperation of India, and Indian Navy.

Besides his work as a senior Homeopath of the HHC, Dr. Farokh Master teaches homeopathy (advanced level) at the Mumbai Homeopathic Medical College, part of Mumbai University.

He also teaches at other homeopathic colleges in India and abroad. He has given seminars in Austria, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bosnia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, England, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Singapore, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UAE, and USA.

Due to his outstanding medical career, at present Dr. Farokh Master is the only Homoeopathic physician, M.D. (Hom.), consulting at Asiaís largest allopathic Hospital (viz. Mumbai Hospital, Institute of Medical Sciences, also attached to Mumbai University).

Many of Dr. Masterís students have become internationally known homeopaths and lecturers.

Dr. Master has written more than fifty books, including The Homeopathic Dream Dictionary, Cross References of the Mind, Perceiving Rubrics of the Mind, The State of Mind affecting the Foetus, Tumors and Homeopathy, The Bedside Organon of Medicine, and provings of Mocassin and Bungarus.

Over the years, Dr. Master has developed treatments for many acute and chronic neurological illnesses, especially in the field of cerebrovascular accidents like cerebral thrombosis, infarcts, embolism and subarachnoid haemorrhage. He has had tremendous success in cases of coma.

In terminal cases of cancer and in the treatment of various complications of malignancy, Dr. Master has pioneered the use of Iscador therapy with homoeopathy, giving relief in pain and haemorrhage and increasing the periods of remission.

Dr. Master is the originator of many recent new approaches and insights in homoeopathy. Although these ideas can often be very helpful, he underlines the fact that no homeopath can do without a thorough understanding of traditional philosophy and an extensive study of materia medica.
