Homeo-Kids By Patricia Le Roux
Sixty portraits of homeopathic remedies for children from birth to twelve years
A modern materia medica of children's remedies, exceptionally concise and practical. Patricia Le Roux was a leading homeopathic pediatrician, combining in her practice classical methods with the new approaches pioneered by Jan Scholten and Rajan Sankaran. She had the unique gift of getting to the heart of the symptoms found specifically in children.
The 60 remedies described range from the classic polychrests such as Pulsatilla, Calcium carbonicum, and Lycopodium to less well-known but very successful remedies for children such as Beryllium, Helium, Saccharum officinale, Falco, Oxygenium, and Chocolate.
Building on Borland's homeopathic classic of children's types, Patricia Le Roux arranged the 60 remedy pictures into these four main types: sensitive to cold, warm-blooded, slow, and restless. This enables rapid differentiation. For each remedy there is also a very useful distinction between the symptoms found in babies and those found in children. The author has drawn on her great clinical experience, offering valuable tips for how the remedies can be recognized in very small children who may display little in the way of typical symptoms or signs. A comprehensive index of illnesses also aids selection of the best remedy. An original work that will surely help homeopaths to prescribe for children with greater confidence.
“Patricia Le Roux was one of the great pioneers of homeopathy: we are greatly indebted to her for this superb selection of the sixty most important remedies for the treatment of babies and children.
HOMEO-KIDS is an innovative book that will help homeopaths in their daily work, whether they be beginners or experienced practitioners."
François Gassin, president of the French association of homeopathic physicians
“With this book, we should be better prepared to recognise the remedies when we see them in practice. The reaction of the organism to the right remedy is phenomenal and hopefully, putting this knowledge to good use, we should be able to get far better results, truly easing the suffering of our little patients and creating better all-round health for our future generations.”

"... This bookd classifies remedies into four ´kingdoms´: Chilly, Hot, Slow and Restless. I like this, it immediately helps a homeopath if they take a case and feel Ì don´t know where to begin´!... My conclusion ist - I like this little book very much after all.... It has added much to my knowledge of remedies for children. I wish I could have met Dr Le Roux...."
