Infancy, Childhood, and Beyond
Didier Grandgeorge, MD
Highly recommended to teachers and parents for the author's observations of developing human beings. His view does not emerge from Waldorf Education or anthroposophic medicine, but is very harmonious with it.
In addition to bringing us a highly useful and readable guide for addressing many common illnesses, discomforts and crises at different stages of life, Grandgeorge has also painted a detailed and beautiful picture of the unfolding human being, from conception to death. His more than 20 years of experience as a homeopathic practitioner and pediatrician have given him an eye that allows him to spot the connections between developmental landmarks and physical, mental or emotional difficulties. These connections are often far from obvious, but once mentioned they make so much sense that we (or rather, I) wonder why we (I) didn’t notice it before. His homeopathic remedial suggestions are doubly useful in that there is an implied nursing and psychological approach couched in most of them as well.
This is one of those little-known books that really deserve more attention than they are getting. Homeopathic Remedies for the Stages of Life has an enormous amount to offer parents, teachers, and healers of all persuasions.
