The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy

by Dana Ullman (Author), Peter M.D. Fisher (Foreword)

Editorial Reviews

“Homeopathy is perhaps the most misunderstood area of medicine, evoking passions
pro and con. In The Homeopathic Revolution, Dana Ullman, one of the world's
foremost authorities, illuminates this field for laypersons and professionals
alike. Like a medical detective, Ullman probes the corners of history and
science in a delightful, fascinating romp."
—Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

“Dana Ullman has done us a major service in showing that many of the smartest
and most successful people in recent history have publicly expressed
appreciation for the benefits they have received from homeopathy."
—John Robbins, author of Diet For a New America and Healthy at 100

“Several Harvard-affiliated physicians have told me in private conversation that
homeopathy has helped their family members or friends, but they would not want
to say so publicly due to fear of ridicule. Hopefully, this book will help
open-minded doctors and scientists to realize they are not alone and to have the
courage to call for more research on this most interesting and paradoxical form
of treatment.”
—David Anick, PhD, MD, research associate at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical

“Dana Ullman takes the reader from the origins of homeopathy as a
nineteenth-century system of medicine into a twenty-first-century science. In
this fascinating ride through medical history, he shows us that many of the
world's most famous and respected people of the past 200 years have advocated
for and appreciated this other approach to medicine. I am personally amazed that
so many of my cultural heroes have benefited from this misunderstood science and
healing art. Homeopathy deserves a definitive place in health care today.”
—Leonard A. Wisneski, MD, FACP, endocrinologist and Clinical Professor of
Medicine at George Washington University Medical Center; adjunct faculty in the
Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University; and author of
The Scientific Basis of Integrative Medicine

“Drawing upon the extensive use of homeopathy by historical figures, founders of
modern medicine, and current celebrities, The Homeopathic Revolution documents
the long-standing efficacy of homeopathy. Given the research breakthroughs in
the biological and clinical effects of nanopharmacology, it is a certainty that
homeopathy has an evolving scientific foundation in the integrative medicine of
the future.”
—Kenneth R. Pelletier, PhD, MD, Clinical Professor of Medicine, University of
Arizona, and author of The Best Alternative Medicine: What Works? What Does Not?

Book Description
What do Mark Twain, David Beckham, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Mother Teresa have
in common? All have been enthusiastic fans of homeopathy, the alternative
medical tradition that treats “like with like.” Homeopathy has an incredible
history of support by many of the most respected people of the past 200 years,
and modern science is finally catching up. In The Homeopathic Revolution, Dana
Ullman blends vivid personal stories and quotes from these and other luminaries
from a variety of eras and fields with a new definition of homeopathy as
“nanopharmacology”–one that will help people, including skeptics, start to
understand its value. After explaining why conventional medicine is inadequately
scientific, why homeopathy makes sense and works, and why it is so threatening
to conventional medicine and drug companies, Ullman lets legends like Coretta
Scott King, Cindy Crawford, Bill Clinton, Vincent Van Gogh, and other
practitioners weigh in on the subject. By writing about homeopathy’s heroes and
telling their stories, Ullman is able to reference and describe important
scientific studies in user-friendly language that verifies the value of this
widely used but still misunderstood tradition.
