The Science of Homeopathy
Paperback: 332 pages

Publisher: Grove Weidenfeld

Homeopathy, a major branch of alternative medicine, is based on the principle that illness can be treated by strengthening the body's own defense mechanisms with substances selected for their energy-giving properties, instead of their toxic ones. Subscribing to the credo that "like cures like," homeopathy uses diluted concentrations of substances that, in larger doses, would produce symptoms of the disease the person is trying to combat.

George Vithoulkas has drawn on two decades of experience to produce this excellent reference work, which outlines both the theory and practice of this often misunderstood technique. Written in clear, concise language, this book presents a detailed discussion of the methods of homeopathic diagnosis and explains the preparation, administration, and evaluation of homeopathic remedies.
