Homeopathic Pharmacy Theory and Practice (2nd Edition)

File Size: 1.58 Mb

This is a good time to publish a book on homeopathic pharmacy. Not only did we celebrate the 250th year of the birth of Samuel Hahnemann in 2005, but the opportunities for a proper integrative healthcare system have never been greater. When I was writing the first edition of this book, more than 10 years ago, healthcare delivery was taking place in a very different environment: general practitioners diagnosed and prescribed, pharmacists dispensed and counselled patients – albeit with some hesitation – and nurses looked after patients with the same traditional skills they had used for centuries. On a corporate level, none of us talked to our non-medically qualified practitioners. On a personal level, some of our best friends were professional homeopaths and we interacted frequently.

In the UK, the shift from a product-oriented health service to a patientoriented service and the granting of NHS prescribing rights to healthcare professionals other than doctors have brought about a totally different situation. ‘Fire-fighting’ disease is no longer our main aim; instead this is merely one of many, situated half way along a continuum extending from the promotion and maintenance of good health at one end to ongoing support and rehabilitation at the other.
