Creating Waves of Awareness
Homeopathy knows no specifics except the specific remedy for the individual, yet as Hahnemann teaches us, some remedies so exactly reproduce a diseased condition, as to become specific. Such as Cantharis in Cystitis, Belladonna in Scarlet fever, Mercurius Cor in Dysentry and Latrodectus mactans in Angina Pectoris.
~ Dr. M. L. Tyler
Introduction to Homoeopathic Prescribing
An in-depth review of homeopathic principles and practice, with many references to past works of the masters. The 4th edition in 1990 (335 pages) was revised and expanded with the inclusion of a number of repertory exercises and a brief materia medica of nine remedies.
Gunavante is a "lay-person" who developed a deep interest in homeopathy. The book contains a few errors (Radium brom. is not an imponderable!), but, generally, it is a well-researched and documented exposition of homeopathic principles and practice. Each chapter ends with a short "self-test" and suggestions as to which books to consult for more information. Many authors are quoted throughout, and the appendices include a listing of books to read at various levels of expertise, as well as remedy suggestions for "specifics" and "causations."
Dr. S.M. Gunavandee in his book "Introduction to Homoeopathic Prescribing" tabulate so many Specifics and Near Specifics in elaboration.
Dr.M.L. Tyler's comment about specifics in homeopathy is a well known fact. Many homeopaths use it successfully. Many learned homeopathic authors have given examples of such specifics in their writings.
We welcome your comments Dr Veeraraghavan and Dr Kuldip as confirming these specifics as noted by Dr Tyler. The more physicians who find these words ring true, the more it substantiates the repetition of her teachings.
Actually Dr. S.M. Gunevante's Book had been written for non-homoeopathic doctors those who are interested in Homoeopathy, especially for Allopaths. But it is a very valuable guide to even experienced Homoeopaths.
Could you please tell us the name of the publisher. Thanks.
