Overview for Essentials of Pediatrics
Homeopathy is an art they say, besides being a science. The art part of it is concerned with the application of the principles. The 'principles' that lead to selecting of the similimum is based on collecting the history and gathering the traits of a person. The 'Traits' are narrated by the patient, deduced from incidences in history and observed by the physician (aphorism no. 90). Observations gains importance to assess the traits of individual who cannot narrate history. Thus observation became important in deaf and dumb patients, comatose patients, children and even animals. In this book, Dr. Pravin Jain has beautifully handled the topic of 'children treatment' based on such observations of children whether they are social, approaching and destructive. Keeping the tradition of predictive homeopathy of simplifying method of finding the 'similimum' he has devised a flow chart to reach the similimum. This book will be very handy for all those who really want to 'cure' the children with right similimum.
