Genius of Homeopathy

by Francis Treuherz MA, FSHom – 350 pages hardback)

Genius of Homeopathy

About the Book:

Walking into Francis Treuherz’ home in North London is like walking into the long history of homeopathy. Over his lifetime Francis has respectfully collected thousands of homeopathic texts and items that reflect homeopathy’s rich history and profound information. The question for someone not so acquainted with the history of homeopathy is where to start and where to finish, in appropriately selecting reading materials from classical authors and biographers. Not to worry, Francis has done so in this book!

Francis has chosen to highlight many writings that are most relevant to the current conflict in which homeopathy is embroiled. He highlights the early period when Hahnemann attempted to turn the tide of hundreds of years of medicine using treatments via opposites and material perspective, changing that to the use of similars and a vitalist approach. This book emphasises the process by which Hahnemann and followers introduced the core principals of energetic medicine.

As the reader works through the varied biographies a dramatic picture builds up of Hahnemann’s life where we know the outcome but are shown the different roads along which he travelled. It is like the story of the blind men and the elephant. Each writer interprets Hahnemann in his own way, but each with such delight and personal and professional fulfillment, and we may learn from them all.

Homeopathy In The Irish Potato Famine

by Francis Treuherz MA, FSHom – 200 pages paperback)

Homeopathy In The Irish Potato Famine

About the Book:

Homeopathy in the Irish potato famine throws light on the dark era of Ireland and also connects the broken links of Irish homeopathy and brings us the real picture. It shows how homeopathy played a major role in saving a nation from becoming extinguished. Dr Kidd’s work has been discussed in the book, which shows him as a pioneer in successfully using homeopathy in epidemics. He was a young homeopathic physician who decided to assist dying people in Ireland, with homeopathy. He treated many cases of typhoid, fever and dysentery and saved many lives. The book also gives a detailed account of the remedies used by Dr Kidd. He has also compared the results of allopathic and homeopathic treatment. A detailed account of the proving of Solanum tuberosum aegrotans by Benoît Mure is also given, which gives account of symptoms where the medicine can be used.


This poignant collection of materials about the “great hunger” not only enlightens us about a dark page in Ireland’s history, but also fills some of the gaps in our own incomplete and imperfect picture of Irish homeopathy. As such, it should bring us all into closer relations with our Irish colleagues. For this we owe a vote of sincere thanks to Fran Treuherz.

– Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D.

The book is another milestone in the career of Francis Treuherz, confirming his place as a member of that valuable species: the homoeopathic scholar.

– The British Homoeopathic Journal

This new book by Francis Treuherz (an inspired historian and homeopath who practices in London, and was the editor of The Homeopath) is a very readable, informative, and sympathetic account. In this book, Treuherz explains that his book began as a talk presented at the Irish Homeopathic Conference at University College Galway, as part of the 150-year commemoration of that tragedy. The subject aroused such interest and emotion that he decided to make the information he had gathered more widely available. The core of the book is a stirring account of the concerted, selfless work performed by Dr. Joseph Kidd, a homeopath.

It is valuable to read the story of a homeopath who had the courage to face unspeakable suffering and try to do something about it.

– Alice Duncan, D.C

This little book is, really several books rolled into one: two biographies, some homeopathic philosophy, a proving, two historical accounts, a materia medica, and a repertory. Of great interest to me was the reasoning that led Mure to his proving. Wishing to treat the diseased potato with homeopathy, he realized that you had to “take the case” of the potato and find the simillimum.

Fran Treuherz has provided us with a magnificent glimpse into our history and has given us a very complete materia medica for a little used remedy. This little book deserves to be on every homeopath’s shelves.

– Julian Winston
