Your Introduction to the Science and Art of Homeopathic Medicine

Dana Ullman

Foreword by Dr. Ronald W. Davey, Physician to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II



Add a review

When I first encountered homeopathic medicine about 25 years ago, it was really difficult to get even basic information. Like everyone else who comes new to homeopathy, I had question after question: How could a medicine work if the amount of substance was so small as to be virtually non-existent? Had it been tested? If it worked so well, why wasn't it well-known, even mainstream? Finding answers to these and other questions involved years of reading and discussion. In the meantime, I had the persuasive evidence that these remedies healed my children faster than anything else I tried (we're talking minutes - really, minutes - as distinct from the days it took for antibiotics to take effect) and with no observable side effects. Still, I was very uncomfortable with my lack of understanding and the fact that my questions seemed to be clearly answered nowhere.

Happily, times have changed and Dana Ullman has written this great book which answers every question I had and then some.

You will find a thorough, yet highly accessible treatment of:

  • how homeopathic remedies work
  • why homeopathy came to be sidelined in the United States
  • what research has been done
  • an overview of approaches to treatment for pregnancy, childhood, women's health, infectious disease, allergies, chronic illness, injuries, mental health, and dentistry.

Included also is a resource guide for manufacturers, schools, and more information.

Discovering Homeopathy is more than an introduction - it is a class-A reference to just about any basic question you may ever hold regarding homeopathy. Very highly recommended!

Homeopathic Medicine at Home

Maesimund B. Panos, M.D. , and Jane Heimlich


Add a review

This is one of the two guides to homeopathic medicine that helped me raise my children. I found it over 20 years ago, when it was one of the only books written for the layperson wanting to use these simple and highly effective remedies for themselves and their family. The text and explanations are uncluttered, the information clear and empowering. I especially love the remedy charts, set out by category of illness. These make it very easy, even in the middle of the night while tending to a child with a suddenly high fever, to identify which symptoms fit the pictures of the home remedies covered in this book. I still use it and can't recommend it highly enough.

Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicine

Safe and Effective Remedies for You and Your Family

Stephen Cummings, MD and Dana Ullman, MPH



Add a review

This is the other guide to homeopathy that accompanied me and my children as they were growing up. As with Panos's book, I still return to it when someone in my family or a friend is visited by illness. The edition I'm able to offer you contains even more information and helpful tools than the one I have loved for so long.

You'll learn how to:

  • assess illnesses and identify clues that point to the right remedy
  • individualize homeopathic treatment
  • decide when professional medical treatment is required
  • gain access to leading homeopathic organizations and resources

Additionally, this new edition also includes two new features that make selecting the correct remedy even faster and easier:

  • Casetaking Questions, to guide your information-gathering process in regard to symptoms
  • Remedy Summaries, for at-a-glance identification of the appropriate remedy

This is a great book - I hope it finds a place on every family's bookshelf!

Homeopathic Medicine for Children and Infants

Dana Ullman, M.P.H.


Add a review

This is an excellent resource for parents wanting to use natural healing methods that support the bodies response to illness. The first half is organized by common ailments and includes accessible descriptions of the symptoms addressed by the various homeopathic medicines. Each ailment also includes clear guidelines on when to seek medical attention. The second half of Homeopathic Medicine for Children and Infants is the most thorough Materia Medica of common remedies that I have ever found in a book written for home use. Several pages are devoted to each remedy, including meaningful descriptions of the plants or substances used. For this alone, I consider the book to have earned its place on anyone's bookshelf.

Impossible Cure

The Promise of Homeopathy

Amy L. Lansky, Ph.D.



Add a review

Impossible Cure - The Promise of Homeopathy provides an in-depth and exciting account of the history, philosophy, science, and experience of homeopathic medicine. At the core of Impossible Cure is the amazing story of how the author's son was cured of autism with homeopathy. It also includes dozens of other testimonials of homeopathic cure, for a variety of physical, mental, and emotional conditions. Impossible Cure is an invaluable guide for anyone interested in learning more about homeopathy.

The story of Lansky's son's cure offers something more -- a detailed account of an alternative approach to autism that worked! I think that anyone who is seeking help in working with autism could only benefit from Lansky's story.

Prozac Free

Homeopathic Alternatives to Conventional Drug Therapies

Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman, ND, MSW and Robert Ullman, ND



Add a review

In Prozac Free, homeopathic physicians Dr. Judyth Reichenberg-Ullman and Dr. Robert Ullman offer compelling reasons for considering the homeopathic approach as an alternative to taking conventinoal medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, Pxil, and Wellbutrin. The authors discuss the serious side effects of these drugs and their failure to treat the underlying causes of depression, anxiety, and other mental and emotional problems. Using case histories from their own practice, they demonstrate the long-term success rate of homeopathic remedies and the advantages of homeopathic treatment, including:

  • Safer, more effective treatment for depression, anxiety, phobias, grief, mood swings, and other mental and emotional disorders
  • Highly effective and completely natural alternatives to antidepressants and other psychiatric medications
  • A medical appraoch that treats you as an individual rather than a diagnosis
  • Practitioners who are genuinely interested in getting to the root cause of your problems
  • Medications that are free of side effects and specifically tailored to your needs
  • Treatment that eases your state of mind and improves your physical health and overall well-being

The Alchemy of Healing

Psyche and Soma

Edward C. Whitmont, MD



Add a review

This book is a wonderful example of what can happen when a deep, unified view of the human being is brought to bear on the basic questions of health and life. Whitmont is both a Jungian psychiatrist with a deep knowledge of the weavings of myth in the human psyche and an experienced homeopath with years of working with disease.

In 1993 he brought all his expertise together in this landmark work that clearly articulates the esoteric role of the physician in the dram of life and death. Taking a daring plunge into the paradoxes of homeopathic medicine, psychoanalytic transference, quantum physics, and the Gaia Hypothesis, Whitmont deftly explores such subjects as Jungian synchronicity, alchemy, the I Ching and the Law of Similars. He hints at the unknown principles fusing organism, planet, and cosmos and at a healing principle so profound it is written in both the stars and the submolecular traces of molecules.

Whitmont provides a forum for one of the most neglected voices of Western Civilization - that of disease - revealing how it is our own abandoned and depreciated voice. In challenging the myth of mechanical medicine he provides a clue as to how we might yet heal ourselves and our planet.

Absolutely fascinating and richly rewarding reading!

Psyche and Substance

Essays on Homeopathy in the Light of Jungian Psychology

Edward C. Whitmont, MD



Add a review

The mind is an epiphenomenon of the body, and the body is an epiphenomenon of the mind. We operate as body-minds. The body is the visibility of the soul, and the soul is the life of the body. You cannot deal with everything by sheer will power or mental approaches. We are embodied in a physical cosmos, and we have our bill to pay to physical existence. And that includes our relationship to the physical aspect of the earth; it means to plants, stones, and animals.

Edward C. Whitmont, MD

Written by the former chairman on the N.Y. Jungian Training Center and a homeopath with over 50 years of clinical practice, this book sysnthesizes homeopathy, Jungian psychology, alchemy, and new physics. Dr. Whitmont describes about a dozen key medicines and their archetypal personalities.

Every page of this book questions our basic assumptions as to the nature of mind and matter, and challenges us to take a fresh look at old, familiar concepts. No serious student of homeopathy can afford to neglect thoughtful study of these writings.

Maesimund Panos, M.D., former President, National Center for Homeopathy.

Healthy Medicine

A Guide to the Emergence of Sensible, Comprehensive Care

Robert J Zieve, MD



Add a review

We need changes in our attitudes, our understanding of illness, our acceptance of non-allopathic practitioners, the economics of how we pay for health care, and our entire professional medical-legal system in which medical boards often act within the law to protect and defend the guild of conventional medicine under the guise of ‘scientific proof.’... I present a template that combines economics, psychology, medicine, physiology, and mythology. It can serve as support and guidance for making the changes necessary for a new model of medicine in the twenty-first century.

—Dr. Robert J. Zieve

Dr. Zieve presents a new paradigm for health care that shows us how to go beyond the limitations and severe deficiencies of our current sickness care system. It embraces and synthesizes the emerging models of integrative medicine, energy medicine, and energy psychology into an effective and affordable approach to healing for everyone.

This guide is for both those wish to provide a more complete form of health care for their patients and also for those individuals who are prepared to make the necessary changes in daily life in order to initiate or maintain a movement toward healing. This includes understanding the daily disciplines of a healing process, the deeper psychological processes of illness, and the creative arts in their therapeutic roles.
