A comprehensive and yet concise Materia Medica. Based on the Synoptic Key by Boger, this book clearly benefits from Phatak’s considerable clinical experience. One of the most popular Materia Medicas worldwide.


A brief Materia Medica derived primarily from the work of Boger, with additions. While most practitioners in the USA who wanted a small “Pocket Manual” often chose the Boericke work, many in the UK preferred the Phatak work. In a comparison between them one many find Phatak to be a bit more readable. Those who have used it say that the summaries he presents of the remedies contain useful details that are not found in Boericke’s. 784 pages
