Mammal remedies in Homeopathy - DVD by Jonathan Hardy
In his inspiring way, Jonathan Hardy sketches for his audience an animated picture of the remedies he presents, drawing on his very considerable clinical experience.
With emotionally charged images, he succeeds in presenting a sensitive introduction to the themes of the mammals: protection, being cared for and nourished, warmth, intimacy. Where this early mother-child bond fails, there is lack – a lack of security, a feeling of emptiness, coldness… and addictions arise.
With a series of cases, Jonathan Hardy demonstrates how homeopathy can help here. With two very moving child cases, the themes of the milk remedies can be readily appreciated. A 4-year-old girl was frequently ill ever since birth, suffering from sleeplessness and a lack of energy. Her mother said that her boundaries were repeatedly violated by her husband, especially during the birth, and that she was unable to make a choice on her own. Both were given Umbilicus humanus (Omphalinum), the umbilical cord, with striking success. The mother subsequently
fell ill with bulimia, but this too disappeared with the remedy.
The impressive, comprehensible and well structured depictions of the remedies makes it easy to follow his explanations. Which is why it is always such a pleasure to attend the British doctor‘s talks.
Lac remedies in practice by Philip Bailey
Philip Bailey uses his wealth of clinical experience working with Lac remedies to flesh out fully rounded pictures of 8 milk remedies. Each chapter is based on personal experience using the remedy, and includes many original observations. This is accompanied by case studies, expressed in the actual words of the patients, enabling a thorough examination of how each remedy’s themes and essence are expressed verbally. The publisher:
Philip Bailey uses his wealth of clinical experience working with Lac remedies to flesh out fully rounded pictures of 8 milk remedies. Each chapter is based on personal experience using the remedy, and includes many original observations. With the help of this knowledge, homeopaths can deepen their understanding of Lac remedies beyond rubrics and stereotypes, to the complexities of real people. The breadth of Bailey’s clinical descriptions is matched by their depth. The essence of each remedy picture is fully explored in the book, and studied from numerous angles. The result is the kind of rich and nuanced materia medica that is easy to relate to, and easy to apply in clinical practice. Each chapter is accompanied by case histories, expressed in the actual words of the patients, enabling a thorough examination of how each remedy’s themes and essence are expressed verbally.
Bailey paints a rich psychological picture of the main themes in Lac cases, from early dynamics of inadequate bonding to mother, through victim-consciousness to compensatory spiritual idealism, whilst emphasising the split in every Lac case between the worldly and the spiritual, and the ambivalence which results from this split.
The Lacs - a materia medica and repertory by Patricia Hatherly
This illustrated book of 700 pages covers the complete materia medica of the 20 Lacs which have published provings. The material is set out synoptically in a mind-map presentation with rubrics in Generalities; Mind and Dreams grouped thematically for ease of understanding of the main concepts. The text is interspersed with personal commentary from Patricia's experience both as a homoeopath as well as a lactation consultant, and this serves to embellish certain aspects of the material from a Doctrine of Signatures perspective as well as flag differential markers.
Each materia medica chapter has a comprehensive bibliography as well as a list of remedies to be considered in differential diagnosis. Additionally, a comprehensive repertory of all the rubrics from both published provings as well as cases, serves to make this THE book you will reach for when a Lac is being considered.
"I have been looking forward to a book which would cover all the existing info of the Lacs; a most deep acting group of the animal remedies. One of the few people in the world who would have the competence, knowledge and drive to do this is Patricia and she did it - so thank you very much, Patricia." Kees Dam
"In the production of this collection of Lacs, Patricia has gone back to the source material in Animal Mind, Human Voices and other Lac provings and her attention to detail is impressive." Nancy Herrick
"This work is the most comprehensive opus on the Lacs. The book will not only help all those doing research on the Lacs, but will help finding the right remedy for a patient when a Lac is being considered, a much easier task. It is a work which I wholeheartedly recommend. Roger van Zandvoort

Homeopathy and Patterns in Mammals by B and S Joshi
An inspiring work from their continuous uphill battle to find more remedies in the animal Kingdom. The deep connection that these four limbed animals have with the humans have been revealed in a picturesque mode.
“We humans are primarily animals and it is only expected that we feel connection to them in many ways. These connection could be positive or negative. We may love them, fear them or dislike them. Some of us may simply admire them in the wild. Since the outer world is a mere reflection of our deep inner pattern, the animals we love, hate, like or fear may actually be a resonance with our innermost nature and our patterns.” -The Joshis
