Product Description

Homeopathy in Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine

Michael Frass, MD & Martin Bündner, MD (editors)

 

Many books that we sell are GOOD…but some are EXCEPTIONAL…and THIS book is exceptional!  Actually, this book is a “state-of-the art” MODEL TEXTBOOK for the future of homeopathy!  It is a hardback textbook, with two-colors of ink used, with detailed materia medica, detailed listing of rubrics (symptoms from a repertory) that enable you to find the best remedy more easily, and is highly referenced.

This is a unique work, which documents how homeopathy can achieve predictably successful results in emergencies such as anaphylactic shock, acute abdomen, acute asthma, myocardial infarction of the inferior wall, and edema of the glottis.

The book contains 145 well-documented case histories, similar to those written by the old American homeopathic clinicians. In each case it is clearly demonstrated how to quickly find the best remedy using straightforward Kentian repertorisation. The results are impressive. The authors show that conventional treatment and homeopathy can perfectly complement each other.

This work offers also a lot of general information on homeopathy like potentisation, source materials used in homeopathic remedies and methods of administration. It also comprises a stringently edited materia medica of the most important 70 remedies for ICU and emergency situations.

Both editors have extensive experience in emergency medicine and homeopathy. Michael Frass is former head of the intensive internal medicine unit at the Medical University of Vienna and Martin Bünder also has long-standing service in rescue and emergency medicine.
