Being properly hydrated is one of the best ways to begin treatment for fibromyalgia and chronic disease in general. There are three ways to become hydrated: firstly make sure you are drinking enough liquids, secondly mineralize your body with unrefined salts, and thirdly understand that hydration is not only a physical process but a mental one as well.
everybody's guide to
Stephen Cummings and Dana Ullman
Of all the books I have in my library Everybody's Guide to Homeopathic Medicines is the one I consult the most often. My dog eared copy is underlined from cover to cover, and its pages are beginning to turn yellow.
The reason I use this book so often is because it's laid out in a way that works. You look up a particular ailment or injury is on, and then you get a clear explanation of which specific medicine works best for a particular variation of that ailment or injury.
It’s ideal for people who already know a little about homeopathy and want self medicate for minor ailments such as headaches, fevers, scrapes, and bruises. This is a thorough book so beginners might find it a bit hard to wade though.
Homeopathy for Musculoskeletal Healing
People with fibromyalgia and related conditions often complain of musculoskeletal pain so this book is one of the most often referred to in my library. It address all the commonly experienced aches and pains experienced by many people in the course of their lives. Hershoff uses clear explanations along with easy to understand illustrations and charts help us reach the homeopathic cure. This makes it a book accessible for both professionals and people simply looking for a cure for their pain
The headache and pain diagrams alone are worth buying this thing! I love the way this book has been laid out: each body part (knee, neck, etc.) has its own section. Additional support is suggested when appropriate from cell salts as well. I highly recommend that you add it to your collection!
The Complete Guide to Homeopathy: The Principles and Practice of Treatment
This is one of the first books I ever read on homeopathy and the one that made me decide to become a homeopath. In the late 1990s I would spend a lot of time in the public library in Seapoint, Cape Town after work. In the reference section they had a lot of large illustrated books and loved browsing through them. I remember flipping through the Complete Guide to Homeopathy and deciding that this is what I want to do with my life. This illustrated book describes the history and principles of homeopathy and then goes on to explain how to treat a range of common conditions ranging from the flu to acne. There is an accompanying photographic index listing the plant, animal, and mineral sources from which remedies are made. I'm sure you'll love this book as much as I do.
Homeopathic Psychology: Personality Profiles of the Major Constitutional Remedies
Philip M. Bailey
This is a most interesting book that combines psychology with homeopathy. Philip Bailey describes in depth the personality profiles of some 35 polychrests. The last pages of the book cover a mix of psychological astrology and homeopathy when he explores the elements and some polychrests. Bailey provides detailed information on 35 major types, giving insight on diagnosis, mental and emotional traits, and physical characteristics. His broad profiles of major constitutional remedies give the reader a good overall picture of the personality type and therefore ways of remembering facts about the archetype, by having a unifying theory for each remedy.
