About the Book
This book Essentials of Boger’s Principle and Practice of Homoeopathy is a ‘collection’ to ‘connect’ the scattered valuable concepts deliberated by Boger which delineates the principles and the methodology of rational and successful clinical practice of Homoeopathy. These were lying unattended in the form of lectures, presentations, discussions with contemporary stalwarts and practitioners, case analysis and prescriptions by Boger at various time and circumstances at different platforms. This missionary work was accomplished through a thorough and intense search and compilation of all the useful literatures pertaining to Homoeopathy education and practice of the period of Boger (1890-1935). Only those articles which are found to be very meaningful and necessary for the students and practitioners are included in this book.
Boger was a voracious reader of Homoeopathic literature and was a man who believed in verifying the principles through practice before advocating it. Boger had a great role in reorganizing and modifying the dynamics of homoeopathy into practical homoeopathy.
A compilation of 66 write ups also could be referred to as ‘piece of gems’ on homoeopathy which are being placed as an assembled jewel in a book form made out of very precious pearls found lying at different places. It is expected that these pearls will certainly add to the wealth of Homoeopathy.
Sources – These lessons are related to the Principles of homoeopathy, Philosophy, Materia Medica, and Therapeutics as well as Repertory therefore essentially beneficial to all the learners of this rational art of healing.
