This book offers a comprehensive introduction to homeopathic principles and practice, but the highlight is Lansky’s own story of how she went from Silicon Valley scientist to homeopathic convert and champion after experiencing the miraculous healing of her son, who had descended into autism following a vaccination.

Natural Kingdoms—Healing with Homeopathy
by Dr. Rajan Sankaran
Sensation Method case taking is based on the principle that we each have an underlying energy pattern that is similar to something in Nature. Sankaran calls this energy pattern our “other song” and, in this book, explores the way our inner pattern shows up in every aspect of life. Dr. Sankaran is a wonderful writer and although this isn’t a traditonal intro book it’s most definitely a fascinating and enjoyable read for non-practioners. I have been an avid student of Dr. Sankaran from the beginning of my homeopathic journey and use his method as part of case taking and analysis. Buy on Amazon
Green Medicine: Challenging the Assumptions of Conventional Health Care
by Larry Malerba, DO
Written in an accessible style, this book considers a wide range of topics, including physics, philosophy, Jungian thought, shamanism, and alchemy to examine what a truly green medical paradigm would look like. Dr. Malerba includes case histories from his own practice to illustrate how homeopathy looks at the whole person and not just a group of symptoms or a disease name. Though not limited to a description of homeopathy, Dr. Malerba has written eloquently on the principles that underly it. Holistic therapies, like homeopathy, consider all aspects of a person as well as his/her connectedness to nature and culture. The health of the individual is inseparable from the health of the world.
