“With chronic homeopathy you get back to (almost) absolute health, across generations, and thus also to an elevation of individual consciousness, person for person, which results in a changed world view, a view of peaceful coexistence, of being interdependent, of universal, selfless love. …

This is where mothers play a central role, if not to say the most central one. Because mothers are by far the most important people on earth! They bring forth the next generation, which will soon enough rule our planet.

Therefore, it will largely depend on them and their families whether love or hatred will rule, whether there will be coexistence or conflict, whether the reckless exploitation will continue, etc., and finally whether our planet and us humans can still be saved. Because healthy children, with healthy minds and common sense, will mature into healthy, loving, and understanding adults and find their way back to nature, back to universal love, and the meaning of life and pass it all on to the next generation.” – An excerpt from the epilogue of my book, “Gentle Medicine – The True Causes of Disease, Healing, and Health”. 

So what could be more natural than to write a book that addresses the concerns of women and is dedicated to the well-being of these patients in depth? Dr. Kavita Chandak has done this brilliantly and we are very grateful to her. Anyone involved in women’s health, desires to have children, homeopathic pregnancy support and young mothers, should always have this book on their desk.

In addition, this book is a wonderful work for students of homeopathy to get started, especially if they have much to do with girls and women and their health concerns, as it covers the major and most prevalent gynaecological conditions worldwide from menarche to menopause.

The book contains a detailed description of most women’s diseases, beginning with puberty and extending to specific cancers in advanced age, the materia medica of important homeopathic remedies specific to women, a “Homeopathic Gynaecology Kit”, important hints and tips from the author’s own practice, and extensive casuistry, mostly of acute diseases and disorders.

The first six chapters are devoted to the diseases of women, starting with puberty, followed by the “reproductive age”, pregnancy and childbirth and their possible complications, the menopause and certain cancers in women. Each disease is treated in detail with its specific and further symptoms, its possible causes from the point of view of orthodox medicine (which are not always correct if one knows the biological laws of nature), and partly also with homeopathic rubrics and the homeopathic medicines in question.

The following chapters deal with skillful homeopathic case taking in gynaecological complaints, pregnancy and childbirth, and potency selection, as well as the importance of dreams and delusions in female disorders.

In addition, some important gynaecological remedies are outlined, including rare minor and lesser known ones along with their indications. And last but not least a “Homeopathic Gynaecology Kit” consisting of 49 homeopathic remedies with their characteristics, short descriptions and indications is presented. In my long experience, one of the most important chronic medicines (if not the most important of all) is missing here, namely Medorrhinum.

The last part of the book comprises impressive case studies, which are certainly very valuable for the budding student of homeopathy but also for seasoned practitioners. Here a brief medical history, an analysis and evaluation, the homeopathic rubrics in question and the choice of remedy are described and, if necessary, also the follow ups of the cases. In conclusion, Dr. Chandak gives us 97 clinical tips for gynaecological symptoms and their main medicines from her homeopathic experience.

All these diseases and treatments are almost without exception purely acute considerations, i. e. without taking into account the underlying miasms. In any case, such complaints and disorders do not occur if the women have previously been treated anti-miasmatically over a longer period of time, that is, when their miasms have been eradicated. Especially the sycotic miasm, because this is the most dominant one worldwide due to the many vaccinations and suppressive treatments of sycotic phenomena administered nowadays such as discharge, fungal infections, trichomonads, herpes genitalis and the like.

For after that, such ailments and complications which Dr. Chandak describes here in detail and which unfortunately are very common nowadays, especially also during pregnancy, are not possible at all. Then you are as solid as a rock in the surf.

Nevertheless, this book is a blessing for all homeopathic practitioners as well as students, indeed a treasure trove of information and important symptoms as well as their treatment. After all, everyone has to deal with such problems on a daily basis and everyone is first forced to help their patients acutely before starting a chronic anti-miasmatic treatment, so that such situations can never occur again.

An excellent and important book for all homeopaths and those who want to be.

About the author

Joachim-F Grätz

Dr. Joachim-F. Grätz, Germany, has been working very successfully as a classical homeopath for over 30 years, taking into account the so-called miasms (chronic basic diseases, disease behind the diseases) and is known far beyond the borders of Germany. The uniqueness of his form of therapy consists in his holistic worldview whereby he also integrates insights from dealing with other natural laws into his homeopathic thinking. This enables him to recognize the causal relationships of every illness and to treat them accordingly. – An extraordinarily successful practitioner, even with the most severe diseases.

Dr. Grätz studied homeopathy with the well-known German homeopath Dr. Otto Eichelberger in Munich, who was one of the first to take the miasms into account in therapy and who made the LM-potencies (Q-potencies) public in the German-speaking countries. He attended seminars of Gerhard Risch, Dr. Mohinder Singh Jus, Georgos Vithoulkas, Dr. Michael Barthel, Yves Laborde, Dr. Rajan Sankaran and Paul Herscu and got acquainted with different directions of homeopathy.

For a time Dr. Grätz was also a lecturer in classical homeopathy at various academies of naturopathy and homeopathy in Munich, Zurich, Köthen, Gauting, Salzburg, and Vienna, and also at the Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich for interested medical students. He wrote several books on cassical homeopathy and the miasms with a variety of impressive case studies, on the nature of potencies in acute and chronic homeopathy, and on vaccinations, and published a double DVD.
