Homeopathy in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine - Michael Frass and Martin Bundner (ed)
This is a unique work, which documents how homeopathy can achieve predictably successful results in emergencies such as anaphylactic shock, acute abdomen, acute asthma, myocardial infarction of the inferior wall, and oedema of the glottis.
The book contains 145 well-documented case histories, similar to those written by the old American homeopathic clinicians. In each case it is clearly demonstrated how to quickly find the best remedy using straightforward Kentian repertorisation. The results are impressive. The authors show that conventional treatment and homeopathy can perfectly complement each other.
This work offers also a lot of general information on homeopathy like potentisation, source materials used in homeopathic remedies and methods of administration. It also comprises a stringently edited materia medica of the most important 70 remedies for ICU and emergency situations.
Both editors have extensive experience in emergency medicine and homeopathy. Michael Frass is former head of the intensive internal medicine unit at the Medical University of Vienna and Martin Bünder also has long-standing service in rescue and emergency medicine.
“At first glance the idea that homeopathy can help in intensive care and emergency medicine seems far-fetched, since we normally associate an intensive care ward with high-tech equipment rather than gentle remedies. So it is all the more surprising to see how sensitively authors Michael Frass and Martin Bündner deal with this controversial field, which is often a matter of life or death. Their main focus is on integration.
What stands out here is the high-class presentation of case-related detail, including repertorisation and remedy selection as well as evaluation and criticism of each case. The treatment section remains exceptionally clear, guaranteeing the practical usefulness of the high-quality scientific information in this book. This book is to be recommended not just to homeopaths but also to doctors working in a conventional clinical setting who have so far only used orthodox medical techniques.”
Review by the Karl and Veronica Carstens Foundation, Germany
“This book is an unusual masterpiece for so many reasons. It manages to succeed in its aims of appealing to both homeopaths, demonstrating the life-saving role of homeopathy for patients suffering many dangerous conditions. (…) I have specialized in acute prescribing for over 20 years and I can say that the editors have done their job really well.”
