The author has written a fictionalized biography that will hold you in its spell from first page to last.
The life of Christian Friedrich Samuel Hahnemann, the man credited with creating the medical philosophy of homeopathy, is well documented. Equally well documented is his ambitious struggle to bring his system of medicine into being. This book tells the story of Samuel Hahnemanns fight with physicians of the old school and the apothecaries who held royal monopolies over the making and dispensing of medicines and against the established code, a code that existed not because it was proven right but because it had the luxury of historical precedent.

The literature on the applications of homeopathy for controlling plant diseases in both plant pathological models and field trials was first reviewed by Scofield in No other review on homeopathy in plant pathology has been published since, though much new research has subsequently been carried out using more advanced methods. To conduct an up-to-date review of the existing literature on basic research in homeopathy using phytopathological models and experiments in the field.
Homeopathics Beyond Avogadro's Number–The Implications of the SEM Scans
A literature search was carried out on publications from to , for papers that reported experiments on homeopathy using phytopathological models in vitro and in planta and field trials. A total of 44 publications on phytopathological models were identified: In general, significant and reproducible effects with decimal and centesimal potencies were found, including dilution levels beyond the Avogadro's number.
The prospects for homeopathic treatments in agriculture are promising, but much more experimentation is needed, especially at a field level, and on potentisation techniques, effective potency levels and conditions for reproducibility.
