About the book
A new translation of the Organon, this book contains a new format, complete with table of contents, index, and glossary, making the Organon easier to use and understand than ever before. Based on treating the whole patient rather than isolated symptoms, this pioneering text on homeopathy remains the foundation for study in this field. The Organon explains why homeopathy is not just an alternative therapy, but a revolutionary system of medicine that approaches the cure of disease in a radical new way. The Organon intersects with a growing public awareness that the current variety of prescription and over-the-counter drugs may temporarily eliminate symptoms but not truly cure disease. Homeopathy goes beneath the surface to treat the whole person, strengthening the natural immune abilities and general health vs. further weakening the immune system through dependence on various medicinal drugs.
