Details

Filling a void in the modern materia medica, Birds offers core ideas, key aspects, prominent rubrics, natural history, cases and proving information for each of the sixteen bird substances; allowing the homeopathic practitioner to understand and more ably prescribe this important group of remedies.

From the Book

It is the authors' hope that the format adopted will permit the reader in the first instance to easily recognize when a patient needs a bird remedy, and in the second instance, to do a thorough differential analysis to get the specific bird.

The Introduction:
An overview of remedies from the bird kingdom. This includes bird characteristics, general bird notes and a brief guide to bird nomenclature.

Part One: The Birds
The key points that emphasize the central characteristics of each bird and what makes it unique. It includes natural history and any important mythology and symbolism that shed light on the remedy. This part includes a section of prominent rubrics specific to the bird.

Part Two: Provings
The actual material of the provings is given; trituration, journal entries, dreams, experiences and physical sensations. This allows for more in depth study of the provers' own language so that it can be seen how core ideas and key aspects have been extracted.

Part Three: Cases
A selection of edited cases to illustrate how the remedy shows up in practice.

Part Four: Other Bird Remedies

Part Five: General Bird Rubrics

Birds: Homeopathic Remedies from the Avian Realm
Authors - Jonathan Shore, MD, Judy Schriebman
and Anneke Hogeland
Reviewed by Jonice Owen, US

A phenomenal modern contribution to homeopathy, Birds: Homeopathic Remedies from the Avian Realm introduces the reader to sixteen homeopathic remedies from the bird kingdom:

  • Brown Pelican
  • Scarlet Macaw
  • Ring Dove/Woodpigeon
  • Red-Tailed Hawk
  • Great Horned Owl
  • Great Blue Heron
  • Bald Eagle, Raven
  • Peregrine Falcon
  • Saker Falcon
  • Turkey Vulture
  • Andean Condor
  • Humboldt Penguin
  • Swan
  • Wandering Albatross

This well researched, well-indexed book about homeopathic remedies made from bird substances, such as feathers, integrates scientific facts; bird characteristics, scientific nomenclature, physiognomy and physiology, with homeopathic themes and essences.

Dr. Shore includes a detailed description of the trituration/proving process utilized. The resulting proving information is not just lists of symptoms but is much more process oriented.

He includes transcribed interviews with provers, in a group setting. This renders the proving material well formatted and readable! The proving sections are accompanied by prominent rubrics, and related remedies to compare.

Another strong component of this text are the cases. These act as background information and colorfully enliven the remedy pictures. These allow or a better understanding of the remedies and assist the reader in taking a giant step forward, toward shedding light on the nature of this family of remedies.

This book is an excellent resource and instructional tool. In the clinic setting, its use is heightened by detailed 'prescribing tips'. Birds: Homeopathic Remedies from the Avian Realm, sets the bar higher for future homeopathic texts.

Further readability ensues with nice inclusions of supportive or illustrative information including a poem, Falcon Freedom by a ten-yr-old boy after receiving Falco-p; excerpts from books, fictional and scientific, related to birds; mythology; symbolism; and natural history.

This user-friendly tool is a valuable, innovative resource. Its sky blue front and back covers enclose flap pages decorated by nice Audubon-style drawings of included birds with individual birds on related section page borders for easier location.

Innovative formatting is best explained by the introductory note which is marked by a feather icon:

'it is our hope that this format will permit the reader in the first instance to easily recognize when a patient needs a bird remedy, and in the second instance, to do a thorough differential analysis to find the specific bird.'

Birds: Homeopathic Remedies from the Avian Realm reflects the depth and breath of the bird kingdom and its beauty. I came away with the feeling that by tapping into the healing resources bird remedies offer, I am able to more fully understand my humanness.
