Allen's Keynotes (Rearranged and Reclassified) - Henry Clay Allen
With Leading Remedies of the Materia Medica added with other Leading Nosodes and Bowel Nosodes (10th edition)
One of the best keynote descriptions of our materia medica - a classic - in a new improved edition.
This is Dr Allen's attempt to render the student's task less difficult, to simplifty the study of materia medica, to make it both interesting and useful, to place its mastery within the reach of every homoeophatic professional. It is great a contribution to the field of homoeopathy and worthy of appreciation.
In the ninth edition, a good attempt was made to re-arrange the randomly placed symptoms in a logical sequence but still the task was not fulfilled. Some symptoms were placed haphazardly or unnecessarily under different small headings like teeth, tongue, glands, perineum, child, elderly, etc. This is now rectified in the 10th edition.
A thorough reading is given to the book and following Dr Hering's "The Guiding Symptoms of our Matera Medica", these symtoms are placed under their appropriate headings at the same time avoiding numerous small conventional headings for better unterstanding.
Keeping in mind the feelings and aim of Dr. Allen, the symptoms are unaltered in substance and the language remains unchanged.
