New provings of Lotus, Ginseng, Mandragora, Rosa Gallica (ancient yellow rose), Rosa St. Francis (the St Francis rose), Ayahuasca and Anhalonium. This book offers extensive descriptions of the natural history, folklore and folk uses of the proving plants. More importantly, the entire proving, major themes, salient prescribing features and repertory rubrics are included for each plant. This is the last of the series of provings from Hahnemann college and represents nine years of intense efforts on the part of many of the students with Nancy Herrick as the proving master.
“Nancy’s book on Sacred Plants opens up a vital area which has not received enough justice so far. Like her book on Animal provings, this one too shows her painstaking research into each plant, followed by a detailed proving which is grouped according to themes and then made accessible by accurate indexing into rubrics. This very important work will go a long way in bringing these Sacred Plants to good use in Homeopathy.” (Reviewed by Rajan Sankaran)

New provings of 8 animal remedies: Horse, Wolf, Lion, Dolphin, Elephant, Rat, California Sister Butterfly, and Maiasaurus (dinosaur) bone. The book gives extensive information regarding the zoology and mythology surrounding each animal. The themes of each proving are carefully explored, rubrics are created and listed and the entire proving for each animal is provided.
“This book is a collection of eight provings which includes much of the rich information about the signature and origins of the lives of the beasts from which the proving substances are obtained. Sanquis soricis (Rat's blood), Lac loxodonta africana (Elephant's milk), Lac ieoninum (Lion's milk), Lac lupinum (Wolf's milk), Lac delphinum (Dolphin's milk), Maiasaura lapidea (Fossilized dinosaur bone), Limentis bredowii (Butterfly), Lac equinum (Mare's milk).
Each proving is presented in an identical format. The animal and its life is described, with a brief description of how the substance was obtained. This description includes a mention of themes which are integrated with the life of the animal.” (Reviewed by Francis Treuherz)
“There is a moment where homeopathy becomes something much greater – a reflection of the mystery of life. Nancy Herrick has skillfully, amazingly captured that moment in her provings. I believe that her work represents the cutting edge of homeopathy." (Recommendation by David Kent Warkentin, P.A., creator of MacRepertory and Reference Works)

“This is a book that took some courage to write and badly needed to be written. Although wholly contemporary in feeling and style, it speaks to the dilemma of busy homeopathic physicians in every time and place: how to keep doing quality work under pressure of time, reputation, and ever more difficult and demanding cases to come up with creditable prescriptions without delay.
Dr. Morrison states ‘The purpose of this book is threefold: It is meant first as an aid to be used at the time of the interview to cue the practitioner toward likely remedies for a particular condition. The second is as a study guide, bringing the main points of the remedies into focus. And finally, (the third is) to give advice about treatment based on the experience of myself and my colleagues at our center. The book as it stands is splendid and unequaled elsewhere. It could well become an important achievement for the society at large in the future." (Reviewed by Richard Moskowitz, MD, DHT)

“Which homeopathic book in my library gets the most use? It is definitely not the Desktop Guide. This book has never been in my library. It sits on my desk in my consultation room for ready access, and I refer to it frequently throughout each and every day of homeopathic practice. The Desktop Guide replaced my copy of Boericke's Materia Medica with repertory on the day I received it in the mail. I find it far more useful than Boericke , more relevant to clinical practice.
Morrison's Desktop Guide is a very useful reference in the clinical setting. He has compiled and distinguished the most important symptoms of nearly 300 remedies. It takes very little time during a consultation to pick out important points that may lead to the confirmation or elimination of a remedy which is being considered.
I recommend this book as the most practical materia medica you are likely to own. As its title suggests, it belongs on your desk, not on your library shelf.” (Reviewed by Dean Crothers, MD)
“The information is reliable and clearly presented in such a form as may be easily accessed in the midst of the demands of everyday practice. Yet the true depth and precision of this text only reveals itself after careful study and reflection in the quiet of one's own home." (Forward by Jonathan Shore, MD and Bill Gray, MD)

This book explores the carbon-based remedies used in homeopathy. The first section describes the underlying mental, general and physical characteristics common to the entire group. The text then details the known material medica of over 140 carbon remedies currently in homeopathic use. Finally an extensive appendix aides in the case-analysis and differentiation of this complex group of remedies.
“I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with the amount of work that went into creating this incredible resource. Now that Roger has presented this information in such a usable form, it is our task as homeopaths to find out how we can use it to help our patients recover. For those of you who find these new ideas about remedy families and relationships appealing, I encourage you to try out this information and feed back to the community your observations and experiences.
I can highly recommend Roger Morrison’s book and workshop, Carbon: Organic and Hydrocarbon Remedies in Homeopathy. I believe they are valuable additions to the many new resources available today. However, even without the new ideas on analysis, the 649 pages of materia medica on the organic compound and carbon remedies consolidated in this book makes it a ‘must have’ resource.” (From the review by Randall Bradley Simillimum, Summer/Fall 2006)
