Homeopathic Pharmacy: Theory and Practice

Homeopathic Pharmacy: Theory and Practice HOMEOPATHIC+PHARMACY
2nd edition gives every health professional and pharmacist the broad
information they need to dispense and counter-prescribe homeopathic
methods with confidence. Designed as both a complete source of initial
information and an everyday reference, Homeopathic Pharmacy
provides detailed information on the procedures, principals, and
applications that are essential in the practice of homoeopathic
medicine. It describes the application
of homeopathy for both general situations, such as first aid,
dentistry, sportscare, and petcare, and for specific situations, such as
allergies, infections, and teenagers’ problems.

I have always suggested strongly to new students of homeopathy that
they need to learn how to take a remedy, by which I mean to undergo the
expereince of being a patient if they have not yet done that. They also
need to learn how to prove a remedy - to take part in a proving. And
lastly they need to learn how to make a remedy. This is the book to
help us all do that. Many of us have gone far beyond our first year
with only a hazy notion what goes on benind a pharmacy counter, even if
we had a go at succussion during a demonstration lesson. This book goes
into great detail about about potencies and scales and how our remedies
are made, their history, the legislation, the may different source
materials and standars of homeopathic pharmacy. It is a unique book,
there is nothing else like it, and it is almost a new book compared with
the first edition 1997.

This rudite book is full of
surprises. It is a full-on textbook about homeopathy for pharmacists,
but it is also a textbook about pharmacy for homeopaths. The
introduction to homeopathy is deep and wide and immersed in both the
classic philosophy of homeopathy, and modern research results.
Interspersed with the serious parts are wonderful anecdotes like that
one above. I think the best one involves a computer and a dram of
single malt wiskhy. In case you have not realised this by now Stephen
Kayne is form Glasgow where he is honorary consultant pharmacist,
glasgow Homeopathic Hospital and visiting lecturerein complementary
medicine at the School of Pharmacy, University of Starthclyde. He was
dean of pharmacy for the Faculty of Homeopathy and owner of Freeman's
pharmacy, now manged by his son.

One aspect which is close to
current concerns , is how the author tackles competency. When should a
pharmacists attempt an over -the counter prescription, when should a
referral to a homeopath be made? Or when whould allopath be more
appropriate? He is entirely sympathetic to the Society , prominently
named in the resources list. 'Care must be take to remain within one's
limits of competency.' We homeopaths are not competent if we do not
understand the issues of how remedies are made, and here are the ideas
and information more than competenly explained.

The Homeopath, Winter 2006
the growing public interest in Complimentary and Alternative Medicine
(CAM), against the backdrop of speculation and controversy over
homeopathy there is a great need for a text book like this one"
"It answers many questions that health professionals may have concerning Homeopathy"
"This is an essential desk top reference book for all homeopaths, students of homeopathy and pharmacists"
Anita Shah - Royal London Homeopathic Hospital
