Understanding the Variety of Methods
in Homeopathy for Better Outcomes
While the underpinning principles, sometimes called laws of homeopathy are clear, individual interpretation of those principles and the needs of the immediate patient and the specific clinical setting lead to an overwhelming difference in the delivery of homeopathic medicine. Quite simply, it is different in Germany, India, the US, the UK, Ghana, Argentina, New Zealand. The reality of homeopathic practice is that of course every homeopath has their own style. No two homeopaths think, reason or prescribe in the same way. This volume will explore the landscape of homeopathic method. To some people outside of the profession it may come as some surprise that homeopaths, even after 200 years do not seem to have professional agreement about the best way to evaluate a set of facts after a case taking and proceed. This has slowed down the profession in gaining general acceptance in many arenas, most notably clinical research. There are schools of homeopathic thought and reasoning and this can be an area of confusion for students at undergraduate level as well as the public. Busy practice and successful prescriptions require flexibility and the ability to alter method and move to another strategy. This book provides the answers and details of each method and crucially, when to use them.

ďAlastair Gray makes a rare figure in homeopathy today, a practitioner and teacher with the objectivity to analyze the disparate methods of homeopathy without favoring one approach. Alastair has mapped here the entire terrain of homeopathic prescribing, from Kentian to polypharmacy. He surveys this landscape with an honest and critical eye, giving both the new and the seasoned practitioner an opportunity to reflect on what it is we do.Ē
