$12.95Add 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.
Homeopathic Medicine for Children and Infants
Dana Ullman, M.P.H.
$13.95Add 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.
The Promise of Homeopathy
Amy L. Lansky, Ph.D.
$18.95Add 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.

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
$16.95Add 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!
A Guide to the Emergence of Sensible, Comprehensive Care
Robert J Zieve, MD
$24.95Add 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.
