your Mother* never told you about
- (*unless your Mother was Margaret Tyler...)
with Will Taylor, MD
I met a little elf man once
Down where the lilies blow.
I asked him why he was so small
And why he did not grow.
He slightly frowned, and with his eyes
He looked at me through and through.
“I’m just as big for me,” said he,
“As you are big for you.”
- Jon Kendrick Bangs, 1862-1922
Join Will as he explores a collection of “small” remedies his mother never told him about, which he's nevertheless discovered to be valuable in the course of clinical practice.
In homeopathic practice, the prescription of small remedies is often underutilized. This course aims to give the student and practitioner the skills necessary to recognize the need for a small remedy as well as how to effectively study, compare and contrast small remedies as they appear within a case analysis.
In the course of working through these cases, and describing these remedies in close detail, we'll look into some commonly-asked, and seldom adequately answered, questions -
What is a small remedy? And why?
Why are some remedies so small, while others grow to the status of a polycrest?
Why might we wish to consider a small remedy for a case, when it appears that a polycrest might do?
Some remedies appear to be “large” in the context of specific pathologies (e.g., physical trauma) or localities (e.g., “bladder remedies”), while remaining “small” in a more general context - is it realistic to characterize remedies in this way?
Can we recognize features in a case which might suggest that it is calling for a small remedy?
How might we organize and examine our analysis, to best bring out a small remedy, when one is appropriate to the case?
How can we best recognize the significance of a small remedy showing up in an analysis?
...and very importantly,
How can we find information about, and study, a small remedy, when we cannot find an adequate (or any) description in our materia medica texts?
What are some effective ways to study a small remedy in comparison / contrast with other remedies, including those “larger,” better-known remedies with which it might be confused?
(*note - the remedies we will cover will not necessarily be those illustrated here, or in the course banner - Will is full of surprises, and likes to keep it that way)

Praise for Dr. Taylor
I adore Will's presentation style, have had him several times as a teacher at the school I attended. I appreciate his sense of humour and movie quotes. I will listen to him anytime. If I could afford to take all his online classes, I would.
Please tell Will Taylor that I thoroughly enjoyed his course and he is a fantastic teacher. He has such an easy going manner, very in depth knowledge, humor and clear teaching that it is pure pleasure to hear him.
