The Homoeopathic Treatment of Eczema ~Robin Logan FFHom
Eczema is one of the most commonly encountered conditions in everyday practice and can pose difficult and perplexing problems for the homoeopath. This text sets out a practical basis for its treatment within the context of classical homoeopathy. The author begins by defining the condition by reference to its conventional treatment, since most patients will have taken this route and are likely to be familiar with the terminology of their diagnosis and the pharmaceutical preparations they have received. The text then describes techniques of case-taking that are particularly appropriate to eczema. This is followed by a full discussion of case analysis, including the relevance of particulars in the hierarchy of symptoms and the subject of one-sided cases, or cases with few other symptoms, with a view to helping the reader to increase his or her own understanding of the issues involved. Further chapters cover all aspects of case management, among them supression, aggravation, potency, repatition of the dose, adjunctive measures and commonsense advice.
