The Homeopathic Treatment of Hyperactivity
REDUCED - SLIGHT MARKS TO EDGE OF PAGES
If you are a homeopath, it will not surprise you to hear that this is primarily a book about homeopathy and in only a small way a book about hyperactivity. Homeopathy is holistic: we treat people, not conditions. To discuss the homeopathic treatment of a particular condition is to create at best a verbal shortcut and at worst a distortion of the whole enterprise.
In this book, therefore, is a treasure trove of insights about using homeopathy in light of any health condition, physical or otherwise. There are skills here for case taking, case analysis, the use of the repertory, and materia medica differentiation that can be applied in any and every case. As a sort of bonus, because the cases presented here cluster around what modern diagnosis has dubbed “hyperactivity,” there are specific tips for approaching cases with this condition, especially in children.
But readers seeking universal protocols for treating hyperactivity will do better to look elsewhere than homeopathy, and elsewhere than this book.
This book contains annotated transcripts of eight cases that appeared live in seminars in Germany and Belgium, most with many years of follow up. The transcripts include patient interviews and Henny Heudens-Mast’s explanations of her case analysis and treatment plans. While hyperactivity is a theme, these are complex cases that demonstrate the homeopathic method as it is applied in all chronic conditions.
