The book speaks highly on the constitutional approach to the treatment of skin
diseases as these are, like any other disease, a manifestation of the dynamically
deranged life principle & not local conditions which can be excised or cured by
topical applications as is the current trend in modern medicine.
The book has been divided into 3 separate sections for the convenience of
reading - The first part dealing with effects of suppression in skin diseases, the
second part containing case records with dosage and follow up and the third part
discussing on the constitutional cure of alopecia areata with case records to
guide through it's management.
A must read for all those who want to learn about the practical application of
homeopathy in skin diseases.
J.C. Burnett, M.D. was contemporary with R. Hughes, R.E. Dudgeon & J.H.
Clarke, and was one of the most potent influence on evolution of British
Homeopathy. Early in his career, he attended the clinic of Dr. John Drysdale at
liver pool with friend A. Hawkes and J.H. Clarke that touched his fascination with
organopathy. He is the acclaimed author of dozens of books on homeopathy
which includes "Consumption", "Liver", "Ringworm", "Gout", "Stunted Children",
"Organ Diseases of Women", "Diseases of Skin", "Change of Life in Women",
"Enlarged Tonsils" and "Tumours" etc.
For this third edition, I have added Part
third, dealing with the cure of alopecia
areata by constitutional remedies without
any local applications whatever. And
it seems to me that if the disease can be
cured by the exhibition of constitutional
remedies in purely dynamic dose, the said
disease must itself "be of a constitutional
quality, as the nature of the curative means
indicates the nature of the malady.
