Lisa and the Mystery of the Little White Globules – A Story about Homeopathy for Children

This book review was first published on the Harbord Homeopathic Clinic website.

How often have our clients asked us simple questions about homeopathy, which we’ve answered using technical jargon common in the profession? Well, I’m definitely guilty of that. Even for basic questions on how remedies are made, I have taken the long route of explaining the process of trituration and succussion, and received blank stares in return. This delightful little story, takes us through Lisa’s journey and through that, explains the art of homeopathy accurately, yet succinctly.

The majority of those who patronise homeopathy are children – yet, I have not come across a book that is tailored to answer their myriad curiosity-driven questions. This short story is a breath of fresh air and bridges the communication between us and our young patients. From why homeopaths ask so many questions to why all the pills look the same colour; whether homeopathy can work for animals to how poisonous substances can become remedies – you have the answers for all the young ones who walk through the door.

I am a parent of a little toddler and his eyes light up whenever he sees my little bottles with white pills. To put it simply, he is a big fan of homeopathy and one of his favourite ‘toys’ is a bottle of blank pills that he likes to shake while watching Giggle and Hoot. He has not started talking yet – hence, the questions have not started. But I am absolutely sure that the day is not far when his curiosity is perked on why I always offers the same white pills whether he has a fever, diarrhoea or even tamper tantrums. After all, his other friends get white, orange and even pink tablets! Well, I’ll have this book handy by the bedside.
