The definitive homeopathic Bird book! New from Alicia Lee, best-selling author of the Homeopathic Mind Maps Trilogy. Creative and insightful, sophisticated and simple, Alicia Lee’s exciting new mind map book brings us 78 Bird remedies, several case studies and numerous differential charts, many of which are new to our Materia Medica. Her unique mind map format allows the psychological, emotional and physical picture of the remedy to clearly emerge. The essence can be seen at a glance and individualizing symptoms are highlighted. The book is laid out in a logical, easily understood pattern based on the taxonomic division of the birds, allowing for clarity of comparison. Lee has done thorough research and often gives us a description of the source of the substance, the correct scientific name of the bird, as well as its place in human history, science, mythology, legends and folklore. This provides fascinating glimpses into the fundamental nature of the remedy. Excerpts from poems or stories, or quotes from literature provide context and a deeper perspective into the realm of a remedy. For example, the story of Empress Elisabeth of the Austro-Hungarian Empire gives us a moving tale of love and tormenting heartbreak that leads us deeply into the essence of Cygnus Olor. Each mind map is illustrated with an apt and beautiful photograph of the bird itself, further enhancing our insight into the character of the remedy. These many elements come together as a beautiful work of art; this book is not only an indispensable life-long reference book for homeopaths, it is also a treasure trove of beauty and interest, bringing us a vast body of knowledge in a remarkably concise, clear and uncluttered presentation. Alongside her earlier trilogy of mind map books, it is a magnificent addition to any homeopath’s library.
