JANSEN, Ton – The Healing Nature of Trees


Trees are often overlooked in healing human beings; their action covers a wide-range of pathologies and their healing power is great. This book offers characteristics of trees used in homeopathy, with keywords and themes, sorted by botanical family. It describes 41 tree families (which are different from the plant families). First the biological characteristics of a tree family are given, followed by its homeopathic theme. Trees within a family are separately described. The descriptions are compact, making it easy to quickly select a remedy. The risk of a compact description is that it can be incomplete. However, references can be found in the extensive descriptions of plant remedies in the Materia Medica.

Ton Jansen has formulated family themes drawing from his professional experience as a grower, love and knowledge of plants, phenomenological research and homeopathic knowledge.

Jansen has another work, The Healing Nature of Plants, which is also available in RadarOpus.
