As we move through a global pandemic it seems timely to re-examine our understanding of health and healthcare. Homœopath Mo Morrish’s latest work makes it clear that health is more than just the absence of illness.  It is the means by which people can enjoy the fullest life possible. He suggests that while many people live longer many of them rely on an increasing number of medications, further suggesting that they are not, in fact, healthy.

This small book is beautifully presented, simple and elegant. It is very aesthetically pleasing and its words are beautifully choreographed.  It is  perfect for anyone interested in homœopathy, one of those books homœopaths pass on and give away to patients and people that want to know more. Great for the general public, those that maybe a little sceptical, students and homœopaths themselves.

This book weaves evidence, statistics and facts, deep homœopathic philosophy and ancient wisdom to create an engaging and convincing promotion of homœopathy as an important and meaningful system of medicine in today’s healthcare.

Drawing on thinkers such as Hippocrates and Einstein he challenges mainstream medicine for its over-reliance on pharmaceuticals and the tendency to treat symptoms rather than the underlying imbalances which give rise to them. Un-packing homœopathic practice Morrish confronts its sceptics with an evidence-based comparison of homœopathy with mainstream medicine and strongly advocates for an integrated approach to healing, greater inclusivity. Given that sickness on this planet has not decreased by half of one percent, might it not be time to work together?

This powerful book is an enjoyable and refreshing review of the fundamentals of what we do as homœopaths, placing our work within a wider medical context and helping us to be more informed and prepared to participate in the much-needed public discourse on how to re-invigorate our health service in a post-pandemic world. It is a timely and engaging reminder that homœopathy just makes sense.

From the author
Through thirty years of homeopathic practise, I have helped several thousand people restore themselves to health, or to significantly improve their health, without causing any harm. I consider this to be a reasonable, ethical, honest and helpful way to earn a modest living chiming, as it does, with the Hippocratic dictum of: “Either help, or at least do no harm. This little book concerns all that I have found to be true within this experience.”

John Morgan, MRPharmS, RSHom
Helios, Managing Director & Superintendent Pharmacist. Hippocratic Medicine is another beautifully crafted book by Mo Morrish and the School of Homœopathy which presents, in a clear and very readable way, the contribution homeopathy brings to the practice of medicine and the art of healing.

The philosophy and guiding principles of homœopathy are a teaching for life and Mo’s books are not only very informative but are always presented in a way which resonates with our own subjective experience and what we feel to be true.

Drawing from his many years of practise and the wisdom of the founding fathers of medicine, Mo guides the reader through the many questions one may have about homœopathy, healing, health and disease. The book is suitable to give to someone new to homœopathy as well as the serious student or practitioner. All will find his engaging style thought provoking as he reminds us that both art and science are essential for effective healing with the guiding tenet of “do no harm” at its centre. This book a timely reminder of the importance of homœopathy in the world and the power it has to improve the health of humanity to those who are open to hearing its message. Thank you Mo for sharing more of your wisdom, understanding, experience and compassion with us.
