Homeopathy has an incredible history of support by many of the most respected people of the past 200 years, and modern science is finally catching up. In "The Homeopathic Revolution", Dana Ullman presents a new description of homeopathy as "nanopharmacology" - one that will help people, including skeptics, begin to understand its value. After explaining why conventional medicine is inadequately scientific, why homeopathy makes sense and works, and why homeopathy is so threatening to conventional medicine and drug companies, Ullman describes various categories of famous people and cultural heroes from all over the world who have used and/or advocated for homeopathic medicines.The book is filled with personal stories and quotes from these fascinating people - Mark Twain, Charles Darwin, Martina Navratilova, David Beckham, Marlene Dietrich, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Orlando Bloom, Paul McCartney, Annie Lennox, Frederic Chopin, Vincent Van Gogh, Cindy Crawford, Bill Clinton, Florence Nightingale, and Mother Teresa among many others. While there are numerous books on homeopathy, no other book in any language has ever been written about famous people who have used these natural medicines.
Many of the books published on homeopathic history and homeopathic research tend to be academic and written for a narrow audience, but by writing about heroes and telling their stories, Ullman is able to reference and describe important scientific studies in user-friendly language that verifies the value of homeopathy.
"Homeopathy is perhaps the most misunderstood area of medicine, evoking passions pro and con. In The Homeopathic Revolution, Dana Ullman, one of the world's foremost authorities, illuminates this field for laypersons and professionals alike. Like a medical detective, Ullman probes the corners of history and science in a delightful, fascinating romp."
--Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things
"Dana Ullman has done us a major service in showing that many of the smartest and most successful people in recent history have publicly expressed appreciation for the benefits they have received from homeopathy."
--John Robbins, author of Diet For a New America and Healthy at 100
"Several Harvard-affiliated physicians have told me in private conversation that homeopathy has helped their family members or friends, but they would not want to say so publicly due to fear of ridicule. Hopefully, this book will help open-minded doctors and scientists to realize they are not alone and to have the courage to call for more research on this most interesting and paradoxical form of treatment."
--David Anick, PhD, MD, research associate at McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School
"Dana Ullman takes the reader from the origins of homeopathy as a nineteenth-century system of medicine into a twenty-first-century science. In this fascinating ride through medical history, he shows us that many of the world's most famous and respected people of the past 200 years have advocated for and appreciated this other approach to medicine. I am personally amazed that so many of my cultural heroes have benefited from this misunderstood science and healing art. Homeopathy deserves a definitive place in health care today."
--Leonard A. Wisneski, MD, FACP, endocrinologist and Clinical Professor of Medicine at George Washington University Medical Center; adjunct faculty in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University; and author of The Scientific Basis of Integrative Medicine
"Drawing upon the extensive use of homeopathy by historical figures, founders of modern medicine, and current celebrities, The Homeopathic Revolution documents the long-standing efficacy of homeopathy. Given the research breakthroughs in the biological and clinical effects of nanopharmacology, it is a certainty that homeopathy has an evolving scientific foundation in the integrative medicine of the future."
