Creating Waves of Awareness
The first revised and enlarged edition of the Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica and Repertory by William Boericke in a very handy and flexible hardback and pocket-sized format.
"The Boericke" has been the most popular homeopathic reference work in the world for decades. Within a single compact volume, it has offered unrivaled coverage, full yet concise, of a very wide range of remedies, including both polychrests and a substantial number of rare and lesser-known substances.
With over 1,200 remedies, this new edition is both the most comprehensive version of the book. It has also been revised and expanded to meet the needs of the modern homeopathic community.
More than 50 important new remedies have been added such as scorpio - Androctonus, Chocolate and black mamba - Dendroaspis polylepis, reflecting the discoveries of leading homeopaths of our generation such as Rajan Sankaran, Jan Scholten, Massimo Mangialavori, and Louis Klein. All the minor remedies originally mentioned either in the appendices or within the text for other remedies have been included in alphabetical order in the main Materia Medica section.
Furthermore, new details of the colour preferences for almost 800 remedies are included. Unavailable anywhere else in this form, these alone make the book unique.
High-quality edition in lightweight paper with supple, flexible binding – despite the compact size, it remains very readable. The very touch of the cover is so lovely and soft, that you won‘t want to put it down again.
Book Review: "I have always placed a spare copy of the original 1927 Boericke in 3 or 4 locations in my house and even have the one my father used in my Synagogue seat box, in case I have a need to look up a remedy for some rapid first aid. I know what to look for and where to find it. It was with some misgivings that I started to use the updated version.
Now I really really like it and keep it by my desk. The typography resembles the original. The soft leather cover, delicate Bible paper and superb binding makes it pleasant to handle. The revisions and the many new remedies make this a worthy replacement. I am even considering obtaining another one for my bedside table."
