The Homeopathic system of medicine is one of the finest systems of cure available to mankind. It was developed in Germany by a German physician practicing Allopathic medicine, Dr. Samuel Friedrich Hahnemann in late 18th Century. Homeopathy was developed in Germany and spread to England and other parts of Europe during the lifetime of Dr. Hahnemann. It also spread to the US. Dr. J T Kent, one of the most well known authorities on Homeopathy, was an American and taught Materia Medica at Hahnemann Medical College in Chicago USA starting 1889. Dr. W A Dewey, another American authority on Homeopathy and professor, University of Michigan Homeopathic College, wrote the book “Essentials of Homeopathic Therapeutics” in 1894. Dr. William Boericke MD is another renowned US Homeopath He was a professor of Homeopathy at the University of California. His book, ‘Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Meidca and Repertory,” a very popular and informative book, was first published in the US in 1927.

Homeopathy is recognized and patronized as an effective system of medicine by the Government of India. Many hospitals in India have a Homeopathy Department.

Homeopathy provides us with medications which can prevent diseases. It provides us a life line in emergencies and serious illnesses till we can reach competent medical aid i.e. a doctor or a hospital as the case may be. Limitations of Homeopathy have been clearly explained in Part 1 of this book. Though serious problems can be treated with Homeopathy, life threatening diseases must be referred to a doctor.

Homeopathic self medication or treatment is reasonably safe and simple. It is cheap and free from side effects. It also provides options to ladies and others who feel shy to discuss their intimate sexual or psychological problems. It can provide a life saving solution if you cannot afford expensive medical treatment. All those who live or work in areas where medical aid is not easily available would be advised to buy this book, study this book carefully and keep a medical kit as suggested in Chapter 1.

Homeopathic self medication is challenging and the results can be very satisfying for those with an analytic mind. Any person understands his or her medical problems the best. Therefore, the person can best select the right medicine and feel if the medicine is working. One avoids standing in queue at the doctor's chamber which often takes the better part of the day.

Homeopathy is the last resort for patients who are declared in curable by allopathic doctors. It is also most effective in dealing with joint problems like arthritis and rheumatism. It is also most useful for treating problems of the aged, women and children.

This book is not a text book of Homeopathy. It is a manual for prevention, first aid and self medication till a serious patient can access expert medical treatment. It is also a manual for self medication for minor or unusual problems which do not always respond to allopathic treatment. It is also a manual for self medication for those who cannot afford allopathic treatment or where the doctor says that the patient is incurable. The book is particularly useful for those who do not have easy access to allopathic doctors or hospitals because of their location in remote areas, because they are traveling or simply because they cannot afford allopathic treatment. It is especially useful for women who have problems with menstruation or menopause. It is especially useful for families with elderly members who have problems which are common to the aged.
