This book comes out of the second year programme at the Scottish College of Homeopathy. It is an attempt to understand Hahnemann's theory of chronic Disease, of miasms, in a modern context, paying attention to the current language of medicine and the current expression of the disease process.
Its aim is to enable the student to understand modern cases in homeopathic terms so they can apply homeopathic theory to cases studied.
The book follows through the action of the remedy explaining different interpretations of symptoms expressing at different levels of the disease process or degeneration of the miasm. This includes the use of potency and acute and chronic prescriptions.
An additional feature at the end of each lesson is a section on developing clinical skills which draws on Margaret Roy's experience as a supervisor and as a psychotherapist.
A full bibliography links to further sources to allow continued study.
