DetailsMateria Medica Viva, Volume 2, by George Vithoulkas, was published in 1995.
This book provides the materia medica of 28 homeopathic remedies:
Ammoniacum gummi, Ammonium bromatum, Ammonium carbonicum, Ammonium Causticum, Ammonium muriaticum, Amylenum nitrosum, Anacardium orientale, Anagallis arvensis, Anantherum muricatum, Angustura vera, Anhalonium lewinii, Anthemis nobilis, Anthracinum, Antimonium crudum, Antimonium tartaricum, Antipyrinum, Apis mellifica, Apium graveolens, Apocynum androsaemifolium, Apocynum cannabinum, Apomorphinum hydrochloricum, Aqua marina, Aralia racemosa, Aranea diadema, Tela araneae, Aranea scinencia, Argentum metallicum, and Argentum nitricum.
Each remedy picture begins with its botanical name or chemical composition, geographical distribution, toxicological information, and actual cases of overdose or poisoning where available.
Vithoulkas' perception of the remedy is presented in a section entitled "The Essential Features,".
"Generalities and Keynotes," lists more specific and detailed characteristics, both generals and particulars.
He concludes with a summary of clinical applications, remedy relationships, and dosage. Wherever possible, cured cases from the classical literature are included.
Other sections are Clinical, Causation, and Antidotes.
"It is my prediction or rather my conviction that this materia medica will be the standard against which all other homeopathic texts will be measured for the next hundred years."

HeritageClaiming he has "little to add" to the volumes of existing literature, the author presents information gleaned from homeopathic literature and enhanced with his own experience.
Each entry presents information about pharmacy and toxicology, physiological action, essential features, general symptoms and keynotes, and cured cases from other authors, if any were found in a literature search.
No cases from his own practice are given, as that will be the subject of another book.
