Essentials of Boger’s Principle and Practice of Homoeopathy by Dr SK Tiwari

Review by Dr Mansoor Ali

We have Lectures on Homoeopathic Philosophy by Kent, Principles and Art of cure by HA Robert, The Genius of Homoeopathy by Stuart Close as guide book on principles of Homoeopathy but no book on Principle and Practice of Homoeopathy by Boger. This book fills the lacunae. The author collected various lectures and articles by Boger and complied in the form of book for the prospects of homoeopathic education and practice.

In this book, several really intriguing cases are recreated and successfully handled by Boger. Reading those cured cases is incredibly enjoyable, and each case offers useful lessons.

This missionary labour was completed through a thorough and exhaustive study of all relevant literature referring to homoeopathy teaching and practise during the Boger era, as well as compilation of that literature (1890-1935).

This book only contains papers that were deemed to be extremely important and useful for students and practitioners.

This book, Essentials of Boger’s Principle and Practice of Homoeopathy, is a “collection” to “link” the dispersed useful notions considered by Boger, which defines the fundamentals and the methodology of logical and effective clinical practise of homoeopathy.

In the form of lectures, presentations, conversations with prominent contemporary thinkers and practitioners, case analyses, and recommendations by Boger at various times and circumstances on numerous platforms, these were laying unattended were included in this book.

A collection of 66 essays on homoeopathy that are being presented as an assembled jewel in book form made out of extremely valuable pearls found lying at various locations is also known as a “piece of gems” or “piece of jewels” on homoeopathy. These pearls are anticipated to significantly increase the riches of homoeopathy.
