Il farmacista omeopata
Author: Luigi Turinese
Publisher: Tecniche Nuove
Author: Tommaso De Chirico
Il principio fondamentale dell’omeopatia, medicina naturale che cura il paziente attraverso la somministrazione di dosi infinitesimali di farmaci rendendoli atossici, stabilisce che “il simile si cura con il simile”, vale a dire che la malattia va curata con lo stesso elemento che in un individuo sano scatena il male. In questo interessante manuale, Tommaso De Chirico descrive, in base al repertorio di Kent, tutte le patologie più comuni che affliggono l’uomo moderno e i rimedi omeopatici più efficaci tanto per i disturbi fisici quanto per quelli psichici. In un momento come quello attuale in cui il dibattito sulla medicina alternativa suscita curiosità e al tempo stesso diffidenza, l’autore colma con il suo saggio un vuoto d’informazione, avvicinando all’omeopatia quelle persone che non intendono “inquinare” ulteriormente l’organismo con i farmaci tradizionali e vogliono salvaguardare la propria salute.
Un parto tranquillo e un bambino in piena salute sono anche il risultato di nove mesi di gravidanza vissuti correttamente, seguendo un'alimentazione completa e naturale, che sappia assecondare le esigenze di un organismo impegnato a costruire una nuova vita. Mangiare e scegliere per due: quante calorie, proteine, grassi occorrono? Gli alimenti da privilegiare e da evitare. I menù, le ricette, le migliori combinazioni alimentari. Quando sono necessari gli integratori? E quali? Quali sostanze possono essere dannose per il feto? E poi, dopo il parto: l'alimentazione della mamma che allatta.
‘A new classic’ in a new edition! Fully revised and updated throughout New sections on antimicrobials From journal reviews of the previous edition: ‘Drawing on their wealth of experience and knowledge in this field, the authors, who are without doubt among the finest minds in pharmacognosy today, provide useful and fascinating insights into the history, botany, chemistry, phytotherapy and importance of medicinal plants in some of today's health care systems. This is a landmark textbook, which carefully brings together relevant data from numerous sources and provides in an authoritative and exhaustive manner, cutting edge information that is relevant to pharmacists, pharmacognocists, complementary practitioners, doctors and nurses alike.’ The Pharmaceutical Journal ‘This is the first book that I have encountered which combines the compounds and plants found in standard pharmacognosy textbooks, i.e. those used in orthodox Western medicine, with the 'new phytopharmaceuticals' which have become established in Western culture over the last 20 years. The medical establishment in this environment is finally catching up with the practices of the general population and so this book is an excellent choice for those who wish to investigate which of the many plants available have some scientific credence. I shall be adding this book to the Essential Reading list for all of the undergraduate students on our pharmacy degree course and would encourage all those involved in teaching pharmacy students to do the same." P.J. Houghton, Department of Pharmacy, King's College London, Journal of Ethnopharmacology ‘Educated pharmacists no doubt equate Pharmacognosy with hours spent hunched over a microscope identifying vegetable drugs. Many probably consider it as a subject with little importance in a modern pharmacy curriculum. How wrong they are! ... This book is designed to give an overview at an easy-to-understand level of a broad subject area... For students of science and of the healthcare professions it is a useful text and the authors are to be commended for their work.’ Irish Pharmacy Journal From customer reviews: ‘A new classic. This is an excellent publication both for science students and the non scientific who have an interest in phytotherapy. The layout is logical and clearly set out. I love the chemical structural diagrams, and the explanations of even complex sequences are easy to understand with very little jargon. It is encouraging to see pharmacognosy being given a prominent place in a modern textbook, and interesting to see both hand drawings and chemical structures on the same page!’ ‘I can recommend this to anyone who is interested in the science behind herbal products and medicines; especially if you are interested in plants. It's quite simple to follow and very concise! Good for pharmacy students.’ ‘This is an ultimate textbook in this subject and a boon for students of M Pharmacy (Pharmacognosy) as well as undergraduates students of Pharmacy. Besides them, it is really suitable for every course comprising a study of plants and their medicinal use.’ ‘Excellent reference book. As an editor, I instantly found the answers to various questions I had regarding botanical descriptions. And it even answered questions that I hadn't gotten around to asking. Highly recommended!’
