DetailsThis book offers the reader an insight into Dr Foubister's clinical experience, gained over a long career in homeopathic practice. His writings are remarkable for the extent of his knowledge and his close attention to detail.
Fortunately he was able to oversee the preparation of the manuscript before his death in 1988.
From the BookThe contents reflect many of his particular strengths. The first section studies the factors that underlie the homeopath's evaluation of the individual patient.
This is followed by a section of several chapters on pediatrics, in which he excelled. There is then a comprehensive section on Carcinosin - his development of the Carcinosin remedy picture was his major contribution to homeopathy and it gained him worldwide acclaim.
He then discusses a number of other remedies in detail, with a final section on specific conditions. The book ends with an Appendix of therapeutic hints that had served him well.
