As usual, in his books Joe starts off with a claimer rather than a disclaimer, which states that everything in the book has been clinically tested and that the book is for health practitioners. Next there is a foreword to this edition as well as to the original edition of the book. In this edition the chapter on the Fibonacci Evolution has been removed because there is nothing more to add and it is in his Fibonacci book. Also, many chapters have been modified and brought up to date.
Chapter 1 – Constitutions – Joe begins with describing what the term meant to the old masters such a Hahnemann, Kent and Blackie, then continues with the new well-known homeopaths Bailey, Herscu, Vithoulkas and Eizayaga.
He then discusses “Where do we start” and decides “Conception” is a good place! The now popular “Epigenetics” is included as is the “genotype” and finally the “Core substance” in detail, including diagrams.
Various remedies and cases are used to illustrate his thoughts on this. Joe discusses various chemical elements and whether they are found in mammals and what their role is e.g., Aurum, Cadmium, Strontium.
Next plant and animal remedies are discussed around whether they can be “core” remedies or “situational remedies”. The conclusion he gives us in page 31 is the protocol we all use and love. The journey Joe himself has taken with remedies is a fascinating read. How many homeopathic authors do you know who discuss the remedies they have taken and why?
Chapter 2 – Miasms, Shmiasms – We start here again with what the masters and teachers thought a miasm was, and amazingly it starts with Hippocrates and the Greek word “miasma” which means a taint or fault.
I am glad to see Ardavan Shahrdar mentioned as I love his Repertorium Virosum, which I am privileged to have a copy of. He gave us the MM of EBV (Epstein Barr Virus) and the main EBV anti miasmatic remedies which Joe has kindly reproduced in this chapter.
Again, epigenetics is discussed with reference to miasms. Joe recounts his written thoughts on taking his miasmatic remedy and why he chose the one he did. His discussion of “Acquired maladies” makes the whole miasm thing easier to comprehend.
Then we go to “ancestral maladies”! Joe challenges us with his thoughts on vaccinations and a discussion of the original three miasms. He shares what happened when he treated himself with all three, and how he now proceeds with his patients. He experimented on himself in August 2019 and recounts his personal recollections which makes fascinating reading.
Chapter 3 – Do we need a map to navigate the road to health? Here Joe discusses his views and ideas on different prescribing methods, including what he adds to the treatment which is not homeopathy.
He describes how he gets an image of a remedy and sees if that matches his image of the patient and the results of some patients where he has done this. There is some very unusual and special prescribing here!
His discussion of suppression when giving remedies, with his interpretation of symptoms being silenced (Silencing he calls it), was food for thought for me. In this chapter he also writes about dreams and fatigue during treatment.
Chapter 4 – Prequel to in-depth treatment. – This chapter is a synopsis of a full book which will be a future publication. It is about “obstacles to cure”. Firstly, there is “elementary nutrition” where Joe shows us why this is the main obstacle.
Obviously, gluten gets the biggest chunk of this chapter with respect to cancer and the liver etc., and neuro- psychiatric problems. Other cereals are discussed including sugar and carbohydrates and dairy is also mentioned.
Even if you thought you knew it all there is some radical new stuff to read here. I look forward to reading the full book in the future. Wow I have just read that my sleep pattern could be normal and I shouldn’t be worried about it!! This was within the paleo concepts.
We are told about nuts, seeds, fruits, vegetables, animal proteins, sweeteners; there’s so much useful information here. Within this chapter he writes about “Organotherapy Drainage and Detoxification”. This part is 45 pages long and contains the essential elements of the book of the same name he wrote in 2010, with modifications and adjustments.
Chapter 5 – Unicism, Pluralism and Complexism. This chapter Joe states is the book he wrote in 2018, with minor modifications. He is doing this because he feels it is in its rightful place with the knowledge and understanding contained in the rest of the book. It is 65 pages long and contains Joe’s take on these subjects written in his usual easy to read and humorous style.
Chapter 6 – Homeophysiology. This chapter tells us how homeopathy works according to Dr. Joe Rozencwajg. His explanations refer to DNA and Epinephrine and included is the theory of meridian points, acupuncture and the memory of water, with extensive discussion about clathrates, dilution, succussion and potencies.
Chapter 7 – Is homeopathy really different from other methods? Here Dr Joe introduces gemmotherapy, which I know he is very fond of. Flower remedies are also discussed. I love the last two sentences in this chapter. “Do I make any sense? Or did I just waste my time?” I will leave you, the readers, to come to your own conclusions!!
Chapter 8 – The proving of a system. Here we have the trialling of Joe’s very own Fibonacci series of remedies using himself, and written as a journal. It took him ten years to do and the results are all written here.
He writes this journal as it was but doctoring the language somewhat so it is not X-rated. I think it is brilliant that Joe lets us into the inner thoughts he had when he tested his Fibonacci system on himself. He trialled it out just like Hahnemann, so he could discover the best way to take this unique series of potencies. Those who are familiar with Joe’s books will know the number of times he has tweaked it to make it more efficient.
Who will get the most out of this book? Firstly, those who have never read Joe’s books will find this one, which encompasses so much of his previous writings, a brilliant way to start. Secondly, this will be enjoyed by homeopaths who want to know what Joe is up to now and read updates on his previous thoughts.
Lastly, this book will be enjoyed by those people like me who just love Joe’s unstuffy way of writing with all the honesty and humour that goes with it. There are a few typos in the book which do not distract from its enjoyment.
One thing sets Joe apart, and that is his determination to understand a case, to get it right and the patient healed in any way possible. It is our privilege to be able to follow his path of experimentation and see just how dedicated he is to this goal.
