Homeopathy: An A to Z Home Handbook|
by Alan Schmukler (Author)
From Publishers Weekly
Though the idea behind his guide to homeopathic medical treatment is worthwhile,
its execution is lacking. Schmukler, the founder of the Homeopathic Study Group
of Metropolitan Philadelphia and a 14-year homeopathic practitioner, begins with
a breezy history and thumbnail sketch of how homeopathy works before delving
into which cures to use for which ailments. And while the ailments are easy to
search through (they're listed alphabetically), Schmukler's remedies read like
riddles sent via telegram. (On using Belladonna to treat a cold: "They are worse
from light, noise or being jarred. They may be thirsty or not"; on using
Pyrogenum to remedy Typhoid fever: "Bed feels too hard. Restless. High pulse
with low temperature or the reverse. Foul diarrhea. Better from motion.")
Readers well-acquainted with homeopathy may find the book helpful, but the
book's intended audience-those unfamiliar with the practice-will likely be lost.
