This book has grown from the fact that I find myself increasingly using metals in my paediatric prescriptions these days, in both chronic and acute pathology.

In fact, it is such a daily occurrence in my homeopathic practice that I felt a study focussing specifically on this group of medicaments could be of general interest. It covers all the metals from the Iron, Silver and Gold series – the fourth, fifth and sixth periods of the periodic table – along with their neighbouring elements, as described below.

It is the fruit of much reflection and intensive study of the research carried out by Doctors Jan Scholten and Rajan Sankaran, who are together largely responsible for making me feel this book could be a valuable addition to the homeopathic medical library.

In order to understand how this book fits into the development of my homeopathic approach, it is useful, perhaps, to look at it in the context of the other series of remedies that I have written about in the past.

I started originally in Homéo et Juliette by looking at milks in homeopathic dilution, making up a family of remedies which surround the key issue of the very first food/nutrition that a baby receives. This led me on (in Hydro-Homeopathic Energy) to examine the use of acids in paediatric prescription, with their characteristic search for unity among individuals and the group.

After that, a study of metals in daily paediatric prescription became the obvious next step. We often give babies a milk in dilution – at the start of their lives, or later – to balance their system, and as vital nourishment for growth. But these little patients of ours also often need, from time to time, an acid in homeopathic dilution to counteract the suffering of separation or dislocation that they may have undergone.

Our babies are thus treated for their initial pathologies with the help of ‘milks’, then ‘acids’. They then grow, under the watchful eye of parents and their homeopathic paediatrician, whose joint goal is to help them achieve adulthood and go on to be successful in whatever projects, careers or lifestyles they undertake and adopt. In this way all children can be viewed, in their actions and creations, as genuine artists, and our objective, through

the dynamic homeopathic values of metals, should be to help them realise their potential.

Through this book I hope to demonstrate, though practical examples and case histories, how I came to develop this hypothesis through my daily practice.» How is it that an anaemic child, weak and denied the vital energy that he needs to carry out his daily actions, can be restored to health by FeRRUM

How come the defensive adolescent – who is so afraid of authority (‘the police’) that his agitation turns to aggression – can be calmed by the intervention of ZINCUM? (Think of the unrest among activists in the suburbs of our major French cities in 2005.)

What is behind the cure, by ARGeNTUM, of the young singer whose complete loss of voice before each major concert was stopping him perform?

And what about the junior tennis champion who, at the height of her success, developed an inflammatory synovitis and cysts on her wrist just before the european championship, but with the help of

IRIDIUM was back on the court in a matter of days?
