A pioneering new book on homeopathy for plant diseases.
Vaikunthanath Das Kaviraj, an experienced homeopath, stumbled by accident upon the homeopathic treatment of plants when he was asked to treat a rust problem in apple trees. The apples had dark red rings on the skin and needed more watering than normal. The symptoms of redness with thirst fitted the remedy Belladonna, which he duly administered. To everyone’s surprise, the rust problem disappeared. What‘s more, the apples the following year tasted noticeably better. For Kaviraj, this was a turning point. In the next twelve years, he undertook intensive research in this area, employing homeopathy for all kinds of plant diseases.
This book focuses on the homeopathic treatment of plants in cases of malnourishment, parasitic and fungal attack, bacterial and viral disease, damage, and weed infestation.
Alongside well-known homeopathic remedies such as Calendula for damage during repotting or Calcium phosphoricum for root rot, he also presents less common remedies, such as Hyssopus for bacterial rots and blights, and Mentha viridis for pest control, as well as Ocimum basilicum for tomato diseases and Ricinus communis for pests in viticulture. A profoundly thought-provoking book that could revolutionize the future of farming.
The new 2nd edition offers several key improvements:
- The previous alphabetical arrangement has been replaced with a helpful new layout structured by topic, making the book simpler and easier to use as a practical reference work.
- Using input from the latest studies and practical field experience, many interesting new remedies have been added. These provide greater choice and help you to precisely select the best remedy to treat plant disease in a more specific way. Some of these remedies have already been successfully applied, as shown by user feedback in our internet forum.
- Pests, diseases, and nutrient problems are illustrated by 137colored photos.
