"This book is written from a disease-centred not person-centred viewpoint so for me it is irredeemably flawed. There is also a lot of use of isopathy, with potentized blood used for hay fever, allergies and infectious diseases. The arguments in favour of this are that it is better than allopathic treatment and that it makes 'lengthy determination of the causative agent unnecessary'. The author sees it as helpful to know that the 'causative agent' is tuberculosis bacilli when prescribing Tuberculinum.

However some interesting cases are recorded: several where Cuprum was given to new hom infants with cyanosis, convulsions, stridor etc. Sometimes this was followed by Strychnine 12x daily.

There is quite a lot of materia medical mainly in the form of fists of possible remedies for diseases; also some brief repertories. It is clear that Dr Imhauser has had a lot of experience of treating children and she has some interesting indications for rarely used remedies like Ammonium causticum. Also Cypripedium. Children turn night into day; they are active and comical at night, are similar to Coffea in being active and loquacious. But it seems to me that many of these sort of remedies are widely used as spedfics in repeated low potency closes, so one has to doubt the value of the symptoms for single closes and single remedy prescribing.

Throughout the book we see prescriptions like Mygale, apparently used for any kind of twitching of the upper body, followed by Lycopodium.. There is no comment on the progress of cases on the basis of anything pertaining to the law of cure, although aggravations are taken as indicating the remedy is working. Cure is usually spoken of referring only to the condition, not the whole person. Often the symptom picture is presented without many individualizing features. Potencies vary but usually between 3x and 30x: doses vary from single dose to repetitions over months, with no explanations I could find of reasons for these variations.

The author on page 89 criticizes Kent's argument against the routine use of Tuberculinum for 'everything that has a relationship to tuberculosis'. She quotes Hahnemann in support of his own practice. This is a rare venture into homoeopathic principles. The book is mainly a reference book for homoeopaths who want to think in terms of diseases. There are a lot of typing and translation errors which could have been remedied had there been an English editor of the translation"
