This illustrated guide to safe and gentle homeopathic remedies will help you care for your family's health on a daily basis. Easy to use and filled with practical information, The Family Homeopath identifies and suggests treatments for more than fifty common family ailments, including:
Colds, fevers, allergies, children's ailments, infections, digestive problems, emotional stress, accidents and emergencies.
Robin Hayfield, a practicing homeopath, shows how to determine when you can safely treat your family at home and when to seek treatment by a homeopathic physician or a traditional medical practitioner.
An alphabetized listing of sixty of the most commonly used homeopathic remedies arranges the information into accessible, color-coded profiles that summarize the possible uses, describe the origin of each remedy, and list the typical symptoms that respond to treatment.
A special section on prescribing for children describes the six main constitutional types (a combination of physical, mental, and emotional factors) that are so important to homeopaths when selecting suitable remedies for treatment of the entire body. Additional chapters discuss how diet, lifestyle, stress, and the use of medical drugs can affect your family's well-being. Also, specific instructions explain how to assemble and store a basic homeopathy kit for your home and where to obtain various remedies.
Robin Hayfield is a practicing homeopath and a graduate of the College of Homeopathy in London. He is the author of Homeopathy for Common Ailments.
