Plants are the largest section in both the homeopathic materia medica and traditional medicine. The various materia medicae and repertories list over 2000 plants remedies, but the amount of information available on which to base prescriptions is sparse at best. This major work details over 2000 individual plant remedies classified in 150 botanic families. Drawing on a wealth of information from provings, clinical observations, herbal uses, folk lore, mythology, botany, personal accounts, toxicology and other sources, the authors weave an in-depth, coherent picture of each botanic family and its members. Each family’s themes and organ system affinities are discussed, supported by the plants’ chemical composition, physiological and pharmacological effects. In addition, for each plant remedy, Plants, lists the number of rubrics in modern repertories, as well as phytochemical composition, official and common names, botanical descriptions and distribution. Combining the clarity and detail for which Frans' work is renowned with Linda's years of clinical experience promises to deliver a definitive text on plant remedies.
Now, after five years in the making, Frans has finished his book on Kingdom Plants. Co-authored by his wife, Dr. Linda Johnston, the book discusses over 2000 plant remedies in 149 families following the latest classification system, APG II. Family themes are elucidated based on botanical classifications, phytochemicals, botany, traditional uses, folklore, history and many other sources, further supported by homeopathic information from provings, cases and other materia medica sources.
