Homeopath Jerry M. Kantor shares his new book, The Emotional Roots of Chronic Illness: Homeopathy for Existential Stress.
Jerry M. Kantor’s book explores the link between emotions and physical health. It presents diagnostic insight, successful case studies, and specific homeopathic remedies that demonstrate the connection between the Five Elements and Phase Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine and the five classical miasms of homeopathy. The book also correlates these miasms with core existential quandaries.

• Introduces five questions linking homeopathy’s five miasms and Traditional Chinese Medicine’s Five Phases.
• Presents homeopathic remedies connected to specific existential quandaries and explains their indications through detailed examples from the author’s practice
In addition to physical ailments, homeopathy offers remedies for existential causes of chronic illness, known as “miasms.”
In his book, Jerry M. Kantor sheds light on the crucial connection between emotions and their physical impact on the body. He provides readers with diagnostic insights, case studies, and effective homeopathic remedies that can help mitigate the harmful effects of emotional imbalances. Kantor also draws parallels between the five classical miasms and the Five Elements and Phase Theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
He describes how each inborn foundational emotion serves as a tool designed to solve stress-related problems, but overuse of any one tool can lead to self-sabotaging imbalances.
By identifying the default emotional response and accompanying physical symptoms, Kantor explains how one can determine the core existential stress or hereditary pattern underlying a chronic illness. The author then presents homeopathic remedies to alleviate the impact of specific existential quandaries for each of the five classical miasms and their associated physical and emotional conditions. He illustrates his points with detailed examples from his practice.
