2 Repertory of the homeopathic Materia Medica and a word index by Dr James Kent

This is the classic essential repertory for a starter in homeopathy by the master homeopath Kent. The repertory of Homeopathic Materia Medica by James Tyler Kent became the standard and remains so until this day. Kent's Repertory belongs on the bookshelf of every practicing homeopath or student. Though repertories such as Synthesis have corrected errors and improved content, Kents opus remains viable to this day since first published in 1897. 

James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) was an American Doctor best remembered as a forefather of modern homeopathy. He was the only homoeopath who contributed vastly to the system in the three fields - Philosophy, Materia Medica and Repertory.

He created portraits of remedies eg: Sulphur as “the ragged philosopher.” Later M.L TYLER his student (3rd top selling secondhand book in our list), further developed his ideas of constitutional pictures of remedies and wrote a book ‘Homoeopathic Drug Pictures’.

He discovered that just as there are octaves of musical tones, so there are octaves in simple substances, through which it is possible to correspond with the various planes of the interior organism of the animal cells. These planes correspond to 30th, 200th, 1M, 10M, 50M, CM, DM and MM potencies.

The wait and watch principle, which he adapted from the 4th edition of Organon (No repetition of dry dose till improvement from previous dose stopped completely.

Kent inspired lots of students, one of them being the recent Prof. George Vithoulkas (author of the number 1 top selling secondhand homeopathy books in our list).top 10 selling homeopathy books new and secondhand

3 Homeopathic drug pictures by Dr M.L. Tyler

An invaluable piece of work on remedy pictures portrayed from the author's own experience and well supported by generous quotes from Hahnemann, T.F. Allen, Hering, Burnett, Farrington, Kent & Clarke. Useful background to each remedy has been provided with respect to its history, source, preparation, use and comparative aspect. Tyler's liberal inclusion of cases, articles, and letters from multiple sources enriches each remedy picture and widens the scope of this work as a handy reference. A captivating writing style and sublime description of various particulars make this literature simply fascinating to read. 125 classical pictures collected together in one complete volume. Also included in these descriptions are quotes from the masters and real life clinical cases.

4 Leaders in Homeopathic Therapeutics by E.B.Nash

A delightful volume which is very readable and filled with personal experiences and tit-bits from a grand prescriber. The book is filled with useful hints and insights. 

Nash covers over 200 remedies in the order he thinks of them, not in an alphabetical sequence:

"to follow the bent of my inclinations, or it is sometimes expressed, the moving of the spirit"

This book give some interesting insights into the thought process of one of the great old homoeopaths.

5 Organon of Medicine: 5th and 6th edition (Hahnemann & Boericke) by Dudgeon

This is a combination of the 5th edition by Dudgeon (the 1893 revision) with the 6th edition by Boericke. Essentially, one can see the changes that Hahnemann made to the text of the 5th edition. An appendix outlines all the changes made from the first edition to 6th edition. It is a valuable study guide. Of all the published editions this remains the favourite for many, since it clearly shows the changes in Hahnemann's thinking as some paragraphs in the fifth edition were modified and others completely rewritten.

The positive changes they made are as follows, a new font has been used which is bigger in size and is a pleasure to read, and footnotes which were earlier given at the bottom and spread over different aphorisms were difficult to find and read. In this new book, they have incorporated them under the appropriate aphorisms at one place - this makes the reading and understanding of "Organon" easier.

To everyone’s surprise, the rust problem disappeared. What‘s more, the apples the following year tasted noticeably better.

The relationships between these booksnatural medicine research books

Many of the books being bought are clearly student books indicating the level of current interest in the study of homeopathy, much more than what people think. We have written another blog talks about where can Australians study homeopathy, which we are regularly updating this blog due to new courses becoming available.

It is students who buy The Science of Homeopathy book by Vithoulkis, Kents Repertory, and The Organon of Medicine.  They carry practices and cases dating back to the 1800's and the newer books seem to reference these also, or at least have grown from their practices. 

Professor George Vithoulkis briefly mentions the premise of Levels of Health in his first textbook, The Science of Homeopathy, published in 1977. After 59 years of experience and diligent observation in homeopathic practice, he presents the fully developed theory for application in everyday practice.

The book, Levels of Health is another top selling book, and a highly original contribution to homeopathy and the medical field as a whole. Vithoulkas (author of The Science of Homeopathy) explains his concept of the twelve levels of health in detail, meticulously elaborating on the indications to which level a patient belongs. He delineates the possible reactions of the organism’s defence mechanism to homeopathic treatment – as well as what the reactions indicate. This volume provides formulas for the physician to recognise whether a patient is improving after the prescribed remedy, as well as the prognosis. It also gives invaluable advice to the practitioner for assessing the gravity and severity of cases. Levels of Health is the new pioneering theory: a vital component in homeopathic prescribing that all practitioners of homeopathy should embrace.
