Birds: Homeopathic Remedies from the Avian Realm by JONATHAN SHORE, MD, JUDY SCHRIEBMAN, CCH, RSHom, CHT, and ANNEKA HOGELAND, MS, MST
This new book is important not just because it provides detailed information on several new remedies from the bird kingdom, but because numerous homeopaths have found that many of these bird remedies are commonly indicated AND their use has led to remarkable improvements and cures.
Here are some quotes about this book…
“I can imagine few things more honorable than to give voice, to truly see and transmit, some part of the spirit of our planet. Usually this work is done by our poets and visionaries but in this case it was done by homeopaths. I am awed and humbled. This work of art should be required (and very enjoyable) reading for any serious homeopath.”
-David Kent Warkentin
“An understanding of the therapeutic power of remedies from the bird realm may prove to be one of the most significant developments in homeopathic materia medica. It fills a crucial gap in our remedy pictures, and my clinical experience already confirms the extraordinary possibilities of these remedies. This book is an excellent contribution to our developing understanding of this family of remedies.”
“This book constitutes a milestone in our knowledge on bird remedies, assembling ten years of information gathered from different sources and making the information available to the homeopathic world in a systematic way.”
