Asking yourself why the word ABSOLUTE? It is because the authors have tried to make the work incomparable and universally valid at all times and as authentic as possible, hence the word being used aptly.

Dr. Guy Tydor (a classical homeopath) from Israel finds Absolute Materia Medica a bridge between the “old” approach of Kent, Boericke, Allen, Clarke, Hering etc. and the "new" approach of directions of diseases, evolution of diseases and other topics. This book is about homoeopathy in its scientific and pure aspects. The book contains the concrete facts essential for prescribing & is devoid of imaginary tales about the remedies.

What does this book provide?

This is a package of uncompromisingly scholarly presentation of 150 remedies offered to the world of homoeopathic materia medica, to unravel the hidden treasure of old and new literature, with emphasis on original database, logical interpretation of data, innumerable creative themes, new expanded relationship of remedies and overall a new methodology of remedy presentation”.

The authors discuss the evolution and structure of MM in a comprehensive manner in preface and prepares the ground for the readers to know what this book has to offer.

How will it help?

Every effort has been made to present the data in an authentic and reliable way. This will help the students to prepare themselves towards the basic solid structure needed for the ongoing study of materia medica. Many students enter into the study of MM with the commentaries and stories, the original data of the remedies becomes obsolete for them. This MM will help them to be grounded. This work is absolute for a physician not only as a reference system but also as a desktop guide. The conceptual framework is structured in an analytical and synthetic way and therapeutic indications have also been provided. Thus this materia medica also satisfies the need of a therapeutic book essential for the successful application of the remedies. For the post-graduate and research scholar, the book will provide ample food to work upon.


Each remedy is presented through three divisions – first the ‘GENERALS’, followed by the ‘PARTICULARS’ and then ‘REMEDY RELATIONS’.


2. PARTICULARS- Head to Skin, Thermal state

3. RELATIONS- A myriad of remedy relations, exploration of remedies through practical tips

4. GLOSSARY- A dictionary of difficult words

5. TWO ARTICLES- Problems and Resolutions of the study of MM, How to use remedy relations in Absolute MM

The point of the book is to provide something new and enlightening here.

The book should serve as a guide to ultimate, incurable stages of diseases.

Let us try to reach to the core – the heart – of our remedies by giving this book a go!

    Dr Bainu Sharma

    Book Review on Absolute Homeopathic Materia Medica by Dr Bainu Sharma and Dr Navin S. Pawaskar We have gleaned invaluable knowledge from the works of Dr Ishwardas Tarkas and Dr Ajit Kulkarni in the past. Their writings have consistently demonstrated a remarkable blend of comprehensiveness and lucidity. Once again, our expectations were met and exceeded with their latest offering, "Absolute Homeopathic Materia Medica." The authors have employed a multidimensional perspective to explore Materia medica, a method adept at elucidating complex yet interconnected information. This unique approach has enabled them to explore diverse facets of homeopathic Materia medica, rendering the book valuable not only to seasoned homeopathic clinicians but also to students seeking comprehensive understanding. The authors have meticulously hand-picked the pearls of wisdom and experience of veteran authors within the field. This compilation serves as a treasure of information extracted from the best sections of best source books. Structured into cohesive chapters, the book's organization ensures a modular compilation of information within each remedy. This fundamental layout and modular presentation enable users to access information autonomously or in conjunction with other sections, fostering greater flexibility and comprehension. The subject matter is arranged sequentially and systematically. Each remedy is discussed under the sections of Generals, Particulars and Relations. Under Generals, inclusion of headings like Nerves and Tissues are innovative supplements in addition to other sections. Of particular significance are the Monogram and Remedy relationship featured in this book. There are notes at the end of each remedy, along with a separate section on ‘How to study remedy relationships’ which makes this book very useful and unique. Authors have done great service to the fraternity by focusing on this rather neglected segment of Homoeopathic Materia medica. The strength of this book is that the authors are successful at correlating symptomatology from both old and new literature, complemented by insights derived from their extensive clinical experiences. This seamless blending has enriched the therapeutic features of each remedy. In brief, it’s a well-balanced work, carefully compiled, comprehensive and up-to- date. The book presents the material in an accessible form; being concise and at the same time sufficiently elaborate for the readers. Hence, it is convenient for reference as well as for detailed study. This book has dual use. It is a bedside reference book for the clinicians, as well as a primary study book for graduate and post graduate scholars. While a work of this sort cannot be profusely illustrated, we would like to make a mention of a few points which we feel will add value. The hallmark symptoms can be highlighted based on clinical utility in practice or gradation of symptoms may be used to differentiate symptoms of importance. It will be of great assistance to the homoeopathic clinicians in their busy practice and to the students during examination. The active principles of the remedies can be mentioned for better understanding of the action of the remedy. The clinical conditions under the domain of each remedy can be added for bedside validation. We express deep reverence for the sincere and gigantic effort to contribute to the science of Homoeopathy. Congratulations!!!
