New Lives for Old
OverviewNo such thing as an incurable disease!
Barker discusses why conventional medicine falls short and homeopathy works so elegantly. Liberally sprinkled with gems; this books is a treasure.
DetailsThe evidence which Barker adduces in order to show that very few diseases are incurable, that even the apparently most intractable maladies can be treated and cured, is so overwhelming that one is irresistibly imbued with the enthusiasm and conviction which carry the author through chapter after chapter of his amazing work.
Just such a work as Barker has written has never more adamantly called for and more urgently needed than at the present time, when cancer, heart disease and many other maladies are destroying ever-increasing numbers.
The oft-times unsatisfactory methods employed by medicine and surgery should be replaced by saner, safer and far more efficacious therapeutic measures.

HeritageJ Barker Ellis was a lay practitioner in Great Britain. A good friend of a number of homeopathic physician's, he assumed editorship of The Homeopathic World when Clarke died and changed its name to Heal Thyself.
(Barker's books) are all well worth reading. They contain much information gleaned from the work of others (Hahnemann, Kent, Farrington, Guernsey, and others are all liberally quoted) and also a number of Barker's cases -- all filled with clinical gems.
