This book offers a rich collection of over a hundred new homoeopathic remedies. It adds to existing knowledge, supplementing the established Materia Medicas used on a daily basis in homoeopathy.
Some of the remedies are completely new. Others are familiar substances used homoeopathically for the first time. Most of them have been the subject of Hahnemannian proving, while the remainder have undergone a clinical symptomatologic study and their value has been confirmed in therapeutic use.
A very detailed clinical repertory is provided at the end of the book, together with an index of clinical key-notes. Principal symptoms are italicised throughout the text. There is a bibliography for each remedy, as well as chemical information of direct pharmaceutical relevance.
"Translated from the French, this book has the remedies of limited provings of over 100 remedies including many derived from modern pharmacological substances: penicillin, sulfanilamide, etc. Translated into English in 1979, and published by Beaconsfield Press (UK).
This book, along with the other two by the same author, becomes a fertile field from which to gather information about many nosodes, isodes, and sarcodes."
