Any serious student of homeopathy should read this book. I felt like the title was a misnomer, and instead should be "In defense of Melanie Hahnemann." It is a 211 page book and 80 pages of it are devoted to Melanie's childhood and her life after Samuel's death.

Melanie travels to Germany from France in a mail coach, dressed as a man due to the fact that it is not safe for a young woman to travel so far by herself. She goes to see Hahnemann for her own chronic health problem. Three days after her arrival they become engaged. She is 35 and he is 80. They plan their wedding in secret, and shortly after they are married he leaves most of his money and his home to his children and goes to Paris with Melanie. In his will, he specifically states that anything he accrues after his departure is to go to Melanie and that anyone who contests that is to receive nothing.

The next 8 years are the happiest of his life. With Melanie's connections, he develops a thriving practice, with many famous and wealthy clients. He is respected, enjoys the opera, long walks, and daily stops for ice cream. He continues to experiment with homeopathy and modifies many aspects of his protocol.
* He begins giving remedies in water so that they reach many nerves in the mouth.
* He also uses olfaction, or smelling a substance.
* He frequently begins a case with sulphur because he believed all disease was psoric (relating to a skin rash) in origin.
* He began the case with the highest potency and then gradually proceeded to the lower potencies.
* They would dilute the remedy in a combination of alcohol and water with succession in between each dose.
* Repeating every two hours, twice a day, every other day, or every day, according to the need.
* Higher potencies for the chronic phases, and lower for the acute
* It appears he developed the LM potency as an alternative to the Korsakoff and Jenichen methods which reached 1000C and 1500C because Hahnemann was concerned about the severe aggravations they may cause.
* The LM method allowed him to prepare a very dilute remedy by hand without aggravation because there was less succussion involved.
* On numerous occasions he prescribed two remedies at the same time. The author concludes that Hahnemann meant that not more than one remedy should be administered at exactly the same time.
During this time Hahnemann writes the 6th edition of the Organon and talks to two publishers about publishing it. When he becomes ill, his daughter and grandson travel to Paris to see him, but Melanie refuses them until the day before he dies because she does not want them to detract him from his struggle to recover. When he dies, she gets permission from the police to keep his body in the house for up to 14 days. She finally buries him on a rainy day with only a few people present.

She fights with nearly everyone over the course of the rest of her life, Hahnemann's family, the courts, people she loans money to, other homeopaths... There is much discussion of publishing the 6th edition of the Organon, which of course doesn't happen in her lifetime, or even her daughter's. At one point she allows her daughter's future father-in-law to see a few extracts from the journals. He immediately published them with some explanatory comments. Melanie writes a heated letter "the infinitesimal dilutions had been carried so unreasonably far that it must be assumed that the mental debility of old age alone could have induced Hahnemann to fall into such errors."

The author also focuses on how difficult a job it would be of incorporating all of his hand written notes in German. But it was eventually done, so that argument doesn't hold much water. Roger Morrison M.D. stated in one of his videotaped lectures that Melanie demanded $20,000 (over $20 million in today's dollars) for the manuscript. This author did not mention that fact although she does explain that she offers the manuscript for a collection of funds from students.

It was an interesting, yet somewhat depressing read.
