Unit Twenty-One : Plants

Aims
This unit aims to familiarise you with the in-depth study of remedies from the plant kingdom in homeopathy. You will explore plant classification and the different plant families, looking at how plant adaptations can relate to their signature, and how the vital sensation can be perceived in members of the same botanical plant family. You will also look at plants in relation to the Sensation Method and miasmatic theory and how this method can be used to make remedy selection easier. In addition you will study a group of remedies from a plant sub family and analyse a further two homeopathic cases.
