AFTER NEARLY A QUARTER OF A CENTURY'S RESEARCH, DOZENS OF PROVEN NEW REMEDIES ARE NOW PRESENTED IN THIS DESKTOP REFERENCE GUIDE FOR HOMOEOPATHS WITH AN INTEREST IN EXPANDING THE HORIZONS OF THEIR ART.This is a key reference volume to facilitate the use of new and unfamiliar remedies that appear in the two volumes of The New Material Medica. The book's user-friendly organization, with chapters on every part of the body and psyche, and alphabetical lists of symptoms, facilitates searching for the most appropriate remedy. Accompanying lists of comparable 'old' remedies allow practitioners to consider lesser-known cures along with the more familiar remedies. There is an emphasis on integrating new medicine into the established canon, so practitioners can use the latest remedies with confidence.There are explanatory essays on how to use the repertory and on the association of remedies with the seven chakras and the seven major miasms, as well as a glossary of remedy names in both English and Latin. Each new remedy is also given a characteristic essential 'thumbnail' sketch to act as an additional guide.Many new rubrics will be unknown to users of traditional repertories and so will fill in important gaps in existing knowledge.
Colin Griffith has been practising homoeopathy for 25 years. Two of his children have followed him into alternative medicine and together they run a busy practice in Kent, where homoeopathy is complemented by osteopathy, shiatsu, reflexology and qi gong. Colin encourages patients to diversify their healing journeys with plenty of 'body work' to ensure the continued flow of subtle energies.He has lectured on homoeopathy in many parts of the world, including the United States, Canada, Japan, Ireland, Spain and Britain. His particular interests are in difficult-case analysis, prescribing on more than one layer at a time (so-called 'three-dimensional prescribing') and, most recently, in discovering the role played by astrology and how it can reveal much that lies hidden in complex cases.Colin is the author of The Practical Handbook of Homoeopathy and two volumes of The New Materia Medica, and is currently working on the third.
