“Didier Grandgeorge has written a book on acute cases in paediatrics. It is a reference for all specialists in homeopathy looking after children in such acute situations. Acute cases in young children are very tricky and need acute diagnosis. Didier , with his amazing knowledge of the repertory and his approach to homeopathy that is under the influence of psychoanalysis has the ability to go straight to the core of the patients situation. His method is clear and gives the opportunity to work quickly and efficiently!”
