The Clinical Focus Guide to Homeopathic Remedies is an attempt to articulate 26 years of dense clinical experience in a succinct and easily comprehensible way. The goal of writing this materia medica was to clear away obscuration whilst being original and comprehensive enough that it would be much easier to use each remedy described.
The first volume is only a start with over 29 remedies included. The remedies are mainly new remedies with a few older and larger well known polycrests. Some of the next volumes will be thematically based rather than simply a mix of remedies.
The criteria for selection of remedies for the first volume was that I had to have had a good grasp of the remedy by having some very good cured cases of that remedy. I also wanted the remedy to be one covered in the HMC Course. I selected 2 or 3 remedies from each weekend session so that the book would be a good companion to the HMC Course itself.
Each of these groups of 2 or 3 remedies follows in line with the thematic arrangement of each weekend of the HMC Course. This thematic arrangement is a shift from the very first years of the HMC Course. Now each weekend has a theme whether it is based on the source of the remedy, (snakes, milks, area of the periodic table, plant families etc.) or topically based. The sessions still utilize cured cases, video and live cases, advanced methodology, information and discussions.
In this way, I can give excellent case examples of new and old remedies, a sampling of which are included in this book. Many of these cases were taken in front of classes and evaluated by a third party. I have tried to give the course the flavor of a clinical apprenticeship and the book an insight into my personal experience.
Lou's prescriptions have an unequaled depth and subtlety, his knowledge of remedies is enormous, this book is a must for every homeopath.
