First Aid for Pets
I love the way it is packaged and presented. I found the number of remedies great value. I am inspired and have already used some of the remedies. Shelley, Administrator (animal lover)
Great first impression - professional, smart, well-designed and clear regarding the contents of the kit whether you are a professional or a complete beginner. The DVD is definitely a valuable tool as it complements the course really well. Also, as a new mum, I found that sometimes although it is not feasible to sit down and read the manual, it is still possible just to listen to the DVD whilst doing something else.
I found it very accessible without being dumbed down, it strikes a good balance. Really helpful to get the info presented in different ways, it felt like a good tutorial.

A very complete first aid kit for any family and a very good way to start the journey into homeopathy as a whole. Even as a total beginner, it was easy and concise.
Dr David Owen, Homeopathic Physician
The handy pack combines together four handy important components for using homeopathy in the home: First there is a convenient kit of 21 remedies and a cream, which will cover many everyday conditions that occur in the home and needed by the first aid prescriber. Secondly there is a clear, well-written guide with a number of case illustrations that can be used to grasp the principles of homeopathy and which are useful when trying to gain an insight into how and when to use homeopathy in the home. Thirdly there is a useful guide to homeopathic first aid, which can be used as a quick reference guide for what to use and when. If this isn`t enough then the fourth, and fairly unique part of this course compared with other self-help courses, is the DVD, that accompanies the pack. This uses Misha Norland's status as an elder statesman of homeopathy and homeopathic teaching in a way that brings him into the room with you, capturing some of his extensive experience of homeopathy. The course material is divided into easy to assimilate sections that can be dipped into or taken as part of a whole.
This guide is a useful introduction to home prescribing for those who have previously dipped their toe into homeopathy, perhaps using Arnica in trauma and Chamomilla in teething and who now want to use it in a substantial way. It will provide self-help for patients of homeopaths and complementary therapists who want, whenever possible, to avoid conventional medicines. When we think that about ten times as much medicine is self-prescribed and bought over the counter as prescribed by health professionals, then there is a lot of scope for giving patients more information about using the right remedy at the right time when they are treating themselves. The key to successful home-prescribing of homeopathy is learning that the same condition doesn`t always need the same remedy but depends on what in homeopathy we call 'modalities' or those features that modify the way a symptom presents. This course enables the home-prescriber to start making this distinction and therefore use homeopathy more accurately and this in turn leads to more effective use of the remedies.

I highly recommend the Homeopathy First Aid Course & Remedy Kit as an excellent introduction to homoeopathic principles and first-aid prescribing. Misha Norland is one of the most experienced homoeopaths in the country, and the School of Homeopathy has a well deserved reputation for excellence.
