This work was undertaken with a desire to place before the medical profession in condensed form a resume of the Materia Medica of all remedies in common use to date, their pharmacy and therapeutics, together with a chapter on prescription writing, and the management of cases of poisoning. The author has beautifully integrated important details such as drug source, preparation, properties, action, symptomatology, and therapeutics in the most comprehensive manner.
Many physicians have not obtained the desired results from their remedies, because the right preparation has not been administered. The author has given recommendations for the selection of potency, first in accordance with the nature of the remedy employed, second with the clinical history of disease and third with the temperament of the patient. The repetition of the dose depends on the stage of the disease. Frequent repetition is required for acute disease.
Under the heading of Therapeutics, the cardinal indications for the remedies have been given from a therapeutic standpoint.
In the present edition a section has been written on the subject of endocrinology with promising therapeutics.
Prior to the starting of the description of medicines a section on
- Management of cases of poisoning are presented which tells about the general way of managing the cases of poisoning along with the poisoning symptoms of some homeopathic medicines and treatment thereafter
Next, the medicines are explained starting from their short description, preparation, dosage, physiological action and then the therapeutics ending with comparisons with other medicines.
In the end an aggregation of CLINICAL INDEX is added which lists down all the medicines which can be used for a particular disease.
A complete informative work on homeopathic materia medica, therapeutics and pharmacology. Dr Blackwood's clinical experience in this form regarding prescriptions of various drugs is the key feature of this book.
