    An introduction to materia medica from Dr.G.Nagendra Babu is needed today. As we know that in both U.G and P.G courses new syllabus includes the literature part of materia medica still there was no single book which can be recommended to students as well as young teachers. This book resolves the problem of new commerce. We have uncountable books on materia medica, but very few on the introduction of materia medica. The author’s sincere efforts in compiling this book not only show his interest but his vision for the upcoming students. It seems that during his journey he has noticed various problems faced by students and he has tried to bridge the gap between understanding and applying materia medica. As a teacher, none of us can deny the fact that not only students but the teachers also don’t want to teach the introductions part excluding a few of them, because most of them feel that the introduction part is very dry and the content available in various books is very confusing. After going through this book I felt that it will create interest among students and young teachers as everything is well explained in very easy language. The features of the book are, A brief introduction to materia medica Various terms used in materia medica, History and construction of materia medica, Sources of materia medica, Sourcebooks of materia medica, Method of Studying Materia medica Types of material medica, Scope and limitations of materia medica, Group Remedies of Homeopathic Materia Medica Relationship of homoeopathic remedies, Relationship of materia medica with other sciences Applied materia medica, Schussler’s 12 tissue remedies, Bowel nosed, Bach flower remedies Model Drug Picture. The content of this book covers all the topics needed for the U.G and P.G Homoeopathic courses. Also, the content is written in a very simple language which makes it more understandable. The sincere efforts of Dr. Nagender babu are commendable to bring all the homoeopathic literature of materia medica under one roof. The duty of the senior academician is not only to teach students but also to prepare new generation for future, and author has justified his responsibility by providing such a wonderful book.

    It gives me immense pleasure to write foreword to the book Introduction to Materia Medica by Dr G. Nagendra Babu, MD (Hom.) Professor and HOD Sri Sai Ram Homoeopathic Medical College, Chennai, the author of another versatile book A comprehensive study of Organon and a recipient of Best Teacher award. There have been so many books of Materia Medica written from the century when homeopathy was discovered to this century, the so-called modern Materia Medica. We have the pure Materia Medica where symptoms are expressed as they have been produced in provers and Materia Medica where interpretations and elaboration are given for each and every symptom. We have Materia Medica where the mental symptoms are expressed and exposed and Materia Medica where the pathological general are dealt with. Moreover, we also therapeutic Materia Medica where medicines are given for each disease condition and with indications of the particular drug in each disease condition, which lead to confusion among the students of homoeopathy whether they are undergraduate or postgraduate. This confusion get expressed in practice and finally resulted in many schools of Homoeopathy, some of them jeopardizing the existence of homoeopathy itself. These all confusions could be sorted out if we really understand the origin and evolution and types of the Homoeopathic Materia Medica. Until this time rarely, academicians have tried to bring out a book on this do except taking a few lectures on this topic. Dr G. Nagendra Babu has made this attempt in an elaborate manner which is really the need of the time. The salient features of the book are,a brief introduction to beginners on what is Materia Medica, and how it is different from other Materia Medica, journey on the history of Materia Medica dating from ancient to modern times, explanations to terms used in Homeopathic Literature, Schuessler 12 Tissue Remedies, methods of studying Homeopathic Materia Medica, Sources Of Materia Medica, Scope / Advantages And Limitations of Homeopathic Materia Medica, Types of Homoeopathic Materia Medica, Relationship of Homoeopathic Remedies, Applied Materia Medica in Learning & and Practice, and Group Remedies of Homeopathic Materia Medica will also be useful to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. More over the knowledge of the above are very much essential according to the new CCH curriculum for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate. Thus this book in not another Materia Medica Book where every medicine is explained so that a practitioner can use but it is a book on how the books of Materia Medica need to be understood and studied which become very essential for a newcomer to the homoeopathy that is our student community. So I wish the homoeopathic fraternity to make use of this wonderful book. Reviewed by – Dr Winston Vargheese MD (Hom) Professor and P. G.

    Prof. Shreepad Hegde

    Materia Medica is written by Prof. Dr G. Nagendra Babu. Many of the books on homeopathic materia medica are compilations of symptoms produced by the drugs. Many materia medicas available now are aiming at understanding the drug pictures. Readers of homeopathic materia medica complain that different views of authors’ on different drug pictures create confusion in the minds of beginners of materia medica. During my 33 years of teaching in Homeopathic College I was not in a position to suggest any one book (which covers all the required portion) for the beginners and fresh teachers, now I am confident that Professor Nagendra Babu’s book will fulfill this lacuna. Author’s conscious attempt in keeping the language very simple is aimed at blooming students of materia medica. On going through the book one can understand the sincere efforts taken by author in compiling the data from different sources and presenting it in his own lucid style of writing. This book has covered almost all the topics needed to understand the philosophy and principle of homeopathic materia medica for students. Chapters like history of materia medica, relationship of remedies, applied materia medica in learning and practice, group remedies in homeopathic materia medica will be useful to undergraduates as well as post graduate students. This book no doubt will make an addition to the text books on homeopathic materia medica. As the title suggests this book aptly named as an introductory preparation to homeopathic materia medica for beginners. As per the authors’ narrative the subject is based on the new curriculum introduced by the C.C.H standard regulations for the preliminary study. I hope that both the profession as well as students will welcome and utilize this book and be benefitted by the labors of Prof. Dr G. Nagendra Babu.
