HERSCU, Paul – Homeopathic Treatment of Children


The Homeopathic Treatment of Children is indispensable at giving both a clear, overall impression of the various major constitutional types, as well as a detailed outline for reference at the end of each chapter. Not only does Dr. Paul Herscu draw from various sources (repertories and materia medica), he also adds original information from his successful practice.

It was after his first years in practice, that it became clear to Dr. Herscu that there was no modern materia medica which addressed the presentation of children in both health and illness. He set about to write such a book, based solely on what he had seen in practice. The book describes the eight most common constitutional types in children and how they appear to parent, teacher, and doctor alike. The case histories which are interwoven throughout the book, bring to life the detailed examples. Each remedy contains, in addition to the materia medica, a confirmatory checklist and information of infants.
