"The Homoeopathic Physician's Guide to Lactation"

Patricia Hatherly, mother of three, Lactation Consultant, homoeopath and prover of Lac Maternum, passes on the wealth of her considerable experience and research in her book The Homoeopathic Physician's Guide to Lactation.

In it she discusses all aspects of lactation, for both mother and child, from a homoeopathic viewpoint. She covers basic anatomy and physiology, as well as the biochemistry and immunology of mother's milk. She offers convincing evidence that supports one's instinctive feeling that human milk is best for the human baby.

The lactation process, its advantages and its possible problems, are discussed at length with many references to homoeopathic, dietary as well as other solutions, such as correct positioning. The suckling infant, its constitution, and its possible feeding problems such as reflux, colic, lactose intolerance etc. are discussed, as well as special care circumstances and their treatment.

Although the book is not intended for lay-persons as such, mothers will find much useful information, particularly in conjunction with their homoeopathic treatment. A quick reference guide in the appendices, sample menu plans, recommended reading list, and an extensive index make the book user-friendly.

Of special interest to homoeopaths is the differentiation between the Lacs: Lac Caninum; Lac Humanum and Lac Maternum, as well as interesting cases and insights.

This book is thoroughly researched and highly readable – a must for every serious homoeopath.
