Modern medicine has separated human beings from nature. The author, a homoeopathic practitioner, contends that it is this inability to recognize wholeness that has caused medicine to reach a dead end. Parallel to the development of consciousness to its modern scientific objectivity, Twentyman discovers a changing pattern of health and disease in society. The prevalence of diseases like cancer and Parkinson's and new diseases like AIDS appears as part of this history. He regards the understanding of wholeness leads to the rediscovery of healing in its deeper sense to be a true art.
'This is a remarkable book by a most experienced healer. It is a healing experience to read it and I hope it will become a classic.'

'There will be few readers who will not find stimulating insights into homoeopathy and medicine in general in this book. It is also safe to say that it contains more original thoughts on homoeopathy and its place in medicine than any other book published in the last few decades.'
