Many books have been reviewed by professional homeopaths online. Reading reviews about homeopathy books will give you greater insight into which books you want to read. The following are reviews on homeopathy books.
Soul and Survival – The Common Human Experience
The author of Soul and Survival is Grant Bentley, and is the third book he has written. The foundation of the book was formed by collecting thousands of biographies to confirm stress reaction patterns and responses.
The book was written for practitioners and anyone interested in homeopathy. For practitioners, this book covers how and why the simillimum works, the ways homeopathy uses natural forces and laws, how a miasm is used in the positive and negative, and the manner is which homeopathy responds to memories in the unconscious.
However, as mentioned this book can be for patients and anyone in general. The language of the book is not full of homeopathic jargon so that the information and concepts can be understood easily.
Overall, with this book readers have the ability to learn more about themselves and others in a unique way. They will acquire a sense of compassion and gratitude toward each individual and what they have to offer. Homeopaths will learn about the outcome and purpose of miams in depth.
Looking Back Moving Forward
Looking Back Moving Forward by Rowena J. Ronson consists of accounts from British Homeopaths sharing their perspectives and experiences about various issues in homeopathy. It answers questions about homeopathy moving forward into the 21st century. Over 30 practitioners and teachers from the UK are interviewed. Many of these practitioners are highly thought of, even though they may not be well known outside of the UK.
This book points out that a number of methods out on the market are effective. Also, not every method will work for everyone, therefore the challenge is to find the best method for each individual and their condition. The emphasis is on overcoming whatever is blocking the patient, and release them from suffering.
The golden rule that must not be forgotten which is to be focused strictly on the patient, and not the practitioner. Therefore, everything that’s effective helps, such as providing two remedies at the same time. This approach might be suitable and allowed for a given situation.
This book is recommended to anyone who wants to learn about the various aspects and forms of homeopathy practice. This is a real enjoyable read that anyone could benefit from.
Homeopathic Education – The Unfolding of Experience
In Homeopathic Education, the author Catherine R. Coulter discusses the homeopathic education and it’s current state. She takes the reader from the initial stage of enthusiasm and wonder, with beginner’s luck, through additional stages of uncertainty and even dismay to an arising “strengthening stage”.
Ms. Coulter recognizes that classroom learning has value, but also points out the pitfalls and deficiencies it has. For example, the student doesn’t get the opportunity to question patients or observe any responses. Lecturers will frequently present irrelevant information or offer excess warnings. She also says that the more distinguished a teacher is, the more dependent a student may become.
She theorizes that this ultimately leads to a lack of confidence, fear of prescribing, and a rigid commitment to theory. Students need to become skilled at observing, not overly taught according to Coulter.
One of the strong points of the book is the amount illustrations throughout, such as a case example, or some other reference. This is important if you are a student, or teacher, since it will help those gain a better understanding of what they are reading.
