Classical Homeopathy


  • Michael Carlston, MD, DHt, Clinical Professor, Department of Medicine, University of California-San Francisco, San Francisco, CA

Part of Micozzi's Medical Guides to Complementary and Alternative Medicine series, this practical text provides a thorough introduction to classical homeopathic medicine--incorporating its unique view of health and disease, its place in the health care system, and homeopathic clinical practice. It evaluates this alternative system of medicine in terms of its clinical, scientific, philosophical, sociological, and historical contexts. In addition to a well-referenced, evidence-based research chapter, the book also addresses the practice of homeopathy, pharmacology, and specific applications of homeopathy. With its emphasis on scientific research, including discussions of clinical trial design, homeopathic theory, and clinical applications, this book serves as an informed, rational critique of this controversial subject.
