Course Details

In this recorded course, Dr. Will Taylor and Kim Elia focus on 10 different remedies from the Solanaceae, or Nightshade Family. This course recording consists of ten 2-hour segments, each covering a different remedy in depth, through materia medica and cases. Differentials with non-Nightshade remedies and a discussion of some of the lesser known Solanaceae is also included throughout the course.

Why study the Solanaceae?

Images of various nightshade family plants

The Solanaceae, or Nightshade Remedies, are one of the most interesting and diverse botanical groupings used in homeopathy. From the Solanaceae we derive Belladonna, Stramonium, Hyoscyamus, Tabacum, Dulcamara and Capsicum — important remedies we use in daily practice. This group also includes potentially useful remedies which merit further exploration, including tomatoes (Lycopersicon), potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) and eggplant (Solanum melongena).

Even some of the well known remedies in this grouping, such as Belladonna, Stramonium or Hyoscyamus, have features which are often times missed in practice. For example, Belladonna, in addition to its violent, explosive picture, can also present with a gentle and mild temperament.

In Knowing the Nightshades Will and Kim shed light on the many facets and nuances of understanding these remedies in their totality. As your understanding grows, so will your ability to recognize when these remedies are indicated in your cases!

Remedies covered include: Belladonna, Stramonium, Hyoscyamus, Dulcamara, Capsicum, Tabacum, Solanum tuberosum & Doryphora decimlineata, Solanum nigrum, Mandragora and Lycopersicon.

You are doing a great job, and we will continue to recommend your lectures to our students. I have attended quite a few seminars but I believe your materia medica studies and the advice you are giving to students regarding repertorization is the absolute best I have ever heard.

I want to express my personal appreciation for yet another Masters course with the M&M's series. You, Will, and Marci were all once again amazing, but I have grown to expect nothing else from you all, and I have never been disappointed.

Kim, your dedication to homeopathy and teaching it in such an exciting manner is unsurpassed. You and Will together are a dynamic duo and a class act!! Love all the clinical pearls and methodolgy and MM wisdom and the humour you always manage to inject.

Your generosity in offering to help us as individual practioners to apply your teachings and further homeopathy's ability to bring wellness and balance and cure to many is so appreciated.
