A practical guide to homeopathic prescribing in acute illnesses and emergencies.
Dr. Alok Pareek runs a homeopathic hospital together with his father R.S. Pareek in Agra, India with fifty beds, treating around two hundred patients daily. His clinical practice spans thirty years. This extensive experience has given him a wealth of opportunity to carry out and refine homeopathic treatment in a wide range of acute and emergency situations.
Based on this experience, the book offers a clear, practical guide to successful clinical prescribing, with case examples and a living materia medica for problems relating to: the heart and circulation; neurological and psychiatric emergencies; acute trauma, injury and pain; surgery; adverse drug reactions; and selected organ specifics. Careful attention is paid to basic principles, including the limitations of homeopathy. Practical therapeutics are described for over one hundred remedies and detailed advice is given throughout on potency, dosage and remedy administration.
Dr. Pareek demonstrates that homeopathy has much to offer in acute and emergency settings. He aims to increase the confidence of practitioners, to improve results and encourage them to offer safe and effective treatment in this important field, enabling homeopathy to take its place alongside conventional approaches within mainstream medicine.

As an Emergency Medicine physician who deals with life threatening diseases on a daily basis, I found Dr. Pareeks homeopathic approach to be full of well-rounded clinical criteria and plenty of wise advice to the homeopathic doctor.
I truly hope to be in medicine long enough to see us practice hand in hand and enjoy the great benefits of this marvelous scientific marriage in my emergency medicine patients.

Review

This book review is reprinted from Volume 31, Number 2, Year 2012 edition of The Homeopath

Reviewed by Rancis Treuherz

I have been very impressed by this book, as I was by RS Pareek when I heard him lecture in Bombay in 1986'. It is important to note what this book is not, it is not a first aid book for patients to look after themselves, it is a serious work to share clinical experiences of a father and son and extended family, who have their own hospital specializing in emergency surgical and medical care in Agra, not far from the Taj Mahal. This is truly another Indian wonder.

That homeopathy is effective in acute care of patients I can attest, not least from 16 years of acute care on the telephone, or 3 days each week, quite apart from acute prescribing in my own practice. The practical experience shared in this book goes much further and describes a partnership in serious A & E' care between regular and homeopathic medicine and surgery. The limits of each are described in detail. There are special chapters on cardiac and circulatory emergencies; neurological emergencies such as stroke, intra-cerebral haemorrhage, epilepsy, transient ischaemic attack; and more on psychiatry, trauma and injury, post-operative care including iatrogenic emergencies, oncology, alcoholism, environmental disasters such as industrial pollution, pernicious anaemia and more. Always there is respect shown for the necessary medical and surgical care given, homeopathy may be in some cases the primary therapy but in others the alternative philosophy to which we adhere creates a complementary service.

In addition to decades of clinical experience, what the authors share are some brilliant case histories with just enough clinical detail, and then a differential materia medica of possible medicines in each case. You can see for yourself with this reading excerpt2. At the end of the book there are useful cross-references and summary materia medica. The book is well produced but carries some American English spellings, which is not usual from Narayana.

I have some suggestions for the next volume: atrial fibrillation, pulmonary embolisms, diabetic emergencies -both type 1 and type 2, male and female emergencies such as testicular torsion, or after amateur terminations, and appendicitis. To have our own emergency hospital in Britain is something which we can aspire with messianic hope.
