Homoeopathy and the Elements

Printed in Holland, hardback, 880 pages.

Size172 x 246mm

The subject of this book is homoeopathy and the elements of the periodic system. Almost all the elements of the periodic system have their remedy pictures explained and are then given group themes in accordance with the rows and columns of the periodic table. The table itself is reconsidered in a spiral form.

Scholten lays out his lucid conceptual work very clearly in this book and in giving such a large group of remedies themes he makes them easy to remember and understand how they relate.

"You want to have this book at your desk next to the Repertory."
Frans Kusse, SSC, Vol 26, Nr 2, 1996.

About the author:
Jan Scholten (born 1951)
Jan was born in Helmond, the Netherlands, and since 1985 he has been practicing homeopathy. He has studied with many of the well-known homeopaths: Alphons Geukens, Jost Kunzli, Roger Morrison, Bill Gray and especially George Vithoulkas and Rajan Sankaran.

Jan is famous for being one of homeopathy's pioneers. His is synonymous in homeopathy for the enormous advances and insights he has made with the periodic table and mineral kingdom. This groundbreaking work has been done with the categorization of materia medica into characteristic groups and endeavouring to find their 'essence'. This way of thinking about remedies as having 'essences' was first brought to prominence by George Vithoulkas.

With great clarity and coherence Jan Scholten has brought to light the inner relationships of groups of mineral remedies and then later expanded this to give us a working hypothesis for the whole of the periodic table. Jan's idea of combining two remedy pictures (for example Calcarea and Sulpur) to produce a third and individual picture (Calcarea Sulphuricum) is know a common and popular practice among many homeopaths. Jan's latest contribution to homeopathy is his work on the Lanthanides that yet again takes the reader into previously un-chartered waters.
