This book gives you a straightforward explanation of some common medical problems, to help you not to feel like a victim of your body. All too often, advice generates fear rather than shedding light on a problem. The phobia of fever is still widespread, despite plenty of evidence to say that there's no reason to fear a fever.

We will discuss the following medical topics in this book: the common cold, earache, inflammation and infection, fever and asthma. Potentized remedies will be introduced. The circulation system, breathing system and the nervous system are also discussed here and placed in a more worldly context. The effects of alcohol, and of opiates such as heroin, are dealt with along with possible treatment solutions. Childhood illnesses like measles, mumps, rubella and scarlet fever are not examined separately, but general information is given in a chapter on childhood fever. This is followed by a chapter with hints and tips on what to do to support the child's ability to overcome and benefit from infectious diseases. Tropical diseases like malaria and dengue fever are not within the scope of this book. At the end of each chapter you will find references for further reading, covering books and articles from medical journals.

The aim of the book is to help people to understand their condition, rather than feel uncomfortable with it. The hope is that, alongside this understanding, there comes a renewed sense of wonder. By showing how human beings interconnect with the world at large, we hope to inspire in you a reverence for the natural processes of the body, whether it is 'well' or 'unwell'.
