Homeopathy, a system of alternative medicine, was created in the year 1796 by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann and it is always popular with the masses. The system, based on Samuel’s doctrine of “like cures like”, is regarded as a safe and convenient variant to the other traditional systems of curing ailments. Being inexpensive, the medicines can safely be administered to the patient, with little or no fear of side-effects.
However, the most common problem that the patient or the one attending the patient faces, is whether the remedy they have is the correct one. Addressing this issue is J N Singhal’s Homoeopathic Quick Bed Side Prescriber (A Home Guide). The book enlists all diseases and illnesses in the alphabetical order so that the reader, be it a layman or an experienced and busy practitioner, is quickly able to access the one he is looking for and find the accurate cure, especially at the bedside.
Homoeopathic Quick Bed Side Prescriber (A Home Guide), published by B Jain Large Print, is available in paperback. The first edition was published in 2007.

It is a compilation of Dr. Robert Miller’s lectures on the subject. The book discusses types of symptoms, how to identify and classify them, and their respective weightage in reaching the simillimum. The author has explained about peculiar symptoms, general symptoms, particular and common symptoms – how to differentiate between them, what would be included under each and which ones would be ranked higher than the others in various cases. The author continues to explain when to take a symptom into consideration and when to ignore it, how to narrow down to a single remedy from a group and has ended the book with a brief talk on miasms. He has cited examples wherever necessary thereby facilitating understanding.
