See what our former students are saying about this course. And more recently:
"Dr. Levy's course was very easy for me to access, both the audio recordings and the notes. Not only did I learn a lot that was never covered in medical school, I also enjoyed Dr. Levy's teaching style. He introduces large concepts with creative diagrams and catchy examples (like describing Calc Carb as someone like Gorbachev). Then, when he covers individual remedies or more specific learning points, there is already a big picture to frame the details against, that makes it easier to remember.
Dr. Levy is funny too, and I also like how he talks about bringing homeopathy away from dusty old textbooks and into the modern world. I've been wanting to see homeopathy brought into the modern world for so long, ever since I attended school. His notes were very easy to follow and brought forward the most important points, organizing the remedies according to what makes sense. The way he covered the natrum group and the sycotic was illuminating for me. "

If only all allopaths reasoned in the way that Dr. Michel Bouko Levy did. In his first medical clinic, after graduating from the Faculty of Medicine in Marseille in the 1970's, he came across a case for which he had prescribed appropriately, and yet the patient’s disease moved from bad sinusitis, to stomach pains, to terrible headaches and severe cystitis. He said: “I wanted to understand why the patient developed such a sequence of symptoms, and how I could help. I bought my first book on homoeopathy.”
The French understand drainage remedies and organotherapy better than any other nation using homoeopathy. Indeed, Kate Birch’s book, also reviewed in this edition, is based on the work of Dr. Mauritius Fortier Bernoville, who is also mentioned, along with Vannier, in Levy’s Bibliography.
This is a gem of a book, filled with very useful and connected information on every page. Dr. Bouko Levy said it is the book he should have liked to have in his clinic when he began in practice, and I agree. Somehow I have managed in
practice for 30 years without every hearing about Emunctories – you will find them in this book, along with Schüssler Salts (and a neat diagram that links each salt to a sign of the zodiac), Phytogemmotherapy (with a very clear diagram showing how these remedies are made), Organotherapy and Oligotherapy.
There is materia medica of fourteen central remedies, and common satellite remedies, which are prescribed for affected organs and their function. As an example, an ‘association’ of three remedies, in equal parts, for chronic pelvic inflammation in women might be: Aletris farinosa 1DH, Helonias 3DH and Hydrastis 3DH. [DH = Hahnemann Decimal].
I knew nothing of Oligotherapy and its language (Allergic equates to Psoric; Hyspotenic to Depressed Tuberculinic; Dystonic to Luetic or Excited Tuberculinic; Anergic to Sycotic , Old Psoric; and Auto-poisoning to Cancerous,
Sycotic) and its use of trace elements for treatment.
There is information that can easily be applied in daily practice. It is not particularly for Sensation practitioners, but for those who want to use hands-on, low potency methods (the French seldom use above a 30c potency), connecting emotional and mental states with physicals and drainage, support and nutritional remedies. A strong contender for a naturopath’s library.
It is paperback; has full contents pages, and many useful indices – general; modalities (fabulous); mind; neuroendocrine; anatomic; drainage; remedies; and trace elements. This makes it easy to navigate. I’ve marked all the useful illustrations with post-it notes for quick reference (new moon aggravation: Croc., Kali-br., Natrum-carb., Plat., Puls., Sil. – and all the other moon phases are covered too.)
If you have patients whose organs are ravaged by chronic disease, this book enables you to help those patients support, clean and drain their systems, and rebuild their vitality using low potency homoeopathics; gemmotherapy
medicines made from buds - [see also Dr. Joe Rozenkwaig’s Gemmotherapy, if this interests you], and trace elements [ref. also the work of Jon Gamble]. I have found these therapies and know-how infinitely useful in practice over many years, and am pleased to add Dr. Bouko Levy’s book, already well-thumbed, to my bookshelf.

No doubt that psychotropic drugs present severe side-effects. These dangerous drugs should be banished from family pediatrics and only reserved to some psychiatric patients under specialist care. Chemical control is a straitjacket to contain expressing energy. A child has a huge potential, both physically and mentally, to adapt to environmental stresses. Always keep that in mind. An hyperactive child is a perfect field action for homeopathic remedies, as they act fast and without any side-effects and will permit a progressive severing from hard drugs.
ADHD is a neurobiological disorder with symptoms to note all along the medical consultation. Many children present nervous pathologies similar to homeopathic remedies, giving a solid base to build the prescription. The treatment will consider day and night behavior and might associate several nictemeral remedies.
In some neuro-psychiatric cases, the main clew lies in the General symptoms: temperature, pain, sensations, appetite, aversions, desires, thirst, sweat, sleep, dreams, sexuality, etc. Modalities are a safe lighthouse when present in at least 3 organs with General modalities: periodicity, heat, cold, consolation, distraction, etc. Local symptoms presenting a General modality are to be considered as General symptom: diarrhea from milk, periodical hay fever, palpitations < heat and > fresh open air, twitching changing place, asthma by itself, etc.
The potencies to use start from 4CH to 9CH – 3 to 5 granules 1 to 3 times a day and as needed - to higher potencies in dose less often from 15CH to LMK. Drops are easy to handle and of great help in some chronic cases.

The therapeutic effects of remedies made from the embryonic material of plants were first investigated in the late 1950s by a Belgian homeopath, Pol Henry. He then teamed up with a group of French homeopaths and biotherapists including Max Tétau and O.A. They conducted the first experiments as well as human and animal clinical trials that elucidated the effects of gemmotherapy and summarized their clinical findings.
Gemmotherapy is a powerful tool for homeopathic drainage. The most common plants are:

Among all the vaccinations performed today - the strongest scientific experience about the disease itself and its vaccination results is with DTaP and MMR.
Two essential vaccinations performed during infancy - D.P.T.P. and M.M.R - present severe side-effects and will induce recurrent pathologies similar to the vaccine toxic agents. The first booster might open a Pandora’s Box. Side effects must be analyzed with meticulous care - capricious, weeping, insomnia, fever, skin, thirst, abscess, otitis, etc. - along with the rhythm and periodicity of the different diseases Homeopathic Drainage must be performed in the infant or child who presents diseases and/or changes in behavior following the booster, from the first minutes after the injection and up to 3 months later.
The ISOTHERAPEUTIC OF VACCINATION must be used after Homeopathic Drainage: one dose in 15CH and going up to 200K then MK and XMK as needed. Note the reaction after the remedy – in most cases they happen around the 8th day. A skin rash augurs well – fever and physical symptoms are to be taken more seriously – neurological reactions such as nightmares testify a deep impact and sensitiveness of the Toxin.
About 50% of children have reactions in the first days following the booster, such as local inflammation, fever, loss of appetite, otitis, rhinopharyngitis, cough. Some have severe symptoms such as abscess, asthma, eczema or even neurological disorders - weeping and screaming, restlessness or sleepiness, nightmares, and convulsions. The distant consequences are of the same order with a dominance of respiratory tract pathologies from E.N.T. to lungs - but also intestines, colon, bacterial, fungal, and parasitic disorders. The vaccination aggravates the existing hereditary immune system weaknesses and causes an immune blockage.
Measles dominate the MMR pathologies with allergies, conjunctivitis, rhinitis, spasmodic coryza, nose obstruction, cough, hayfever and asthma, physical and psychological growth disorders - essentially decalcification and language - and all the Tuberculinic anergic diseases. Boosters might provoke a local abscess, screaming, restlessness, sleepiness, nightmares, fever. All children presenting “measles-like syndromes” during the week following the booster - called classical side-effects - need a specific homeopathic treatment.
HOMEOPATHIC DRAINAGE PROTOCOL
The immune system has a hereditary program which must be studied during the first years of the infant and child through his diseases and the side effects appearing from the boosters, all has to be noted in the Line of Life. The person with an immune dysfunction from a vaccination will present recurrent diseases most likely similar to the toxin effects. The Wheel of Emunctories might be disrupted from its elimination function – apart from the skin – first at all digestive and respiratory levels. In most chronic cases, a prolonged Homeopathic Drainage protocol is required before a Toxin remedy can be given.
Analyze the family pathologies - mother and father, sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles. The treatment contains 3 levels: Homeopathic Drainage of the sensitive organs, Constitutional fortifying, and Reactive Modes regulation with Central and Satellite remedies. Add Tissue salts, it is always very beneficial for children. Oligotherapy is used in mild cases, Organotherapy is helpful when severe recurrent pathologies, Phytogemmotherapy is very effective but it contains alcohol and has to be handled accordingly.

Half way between Agatha Christie, Hahnemann, and Grimm, this fairy tale presents different homeopathic characters. Will you recognize them?
Once upon a time,
There was a woman who loved to wear sparkling jewels, and so beautiful that she shined more than her precious stones. Silver, she had, for she was involved in the jewelry business, a most lucrative job with secrets of the trade only known by her.
She would not allow any spiteful gossips or comments about her activities: she knew how, in one instant and with a quick glance, transform a soft expression into a cutting one and affirm her superiority. Her fits of anger terrorized everyone, but not as much as her scornful smile, which made one want to crawl to the center of the earth.
Tina, as her father named her, had a daughter: Tilla. After dabbling in secondary school, Tilla was at last realizing her life dream: she was going to be an actress in a theater. She set her heart on multiple disciplines without ever finishing what she started. The last one to talk was always right for her, as long as it came along with flattery and caresses.
All was perfect between Sky and Earth, until one day when Lacy, a customer and known blabbermouth, came into Tina’s shop. She was all dressed in white like as a young bride although she was no Spring chicken.
The jeweler lifted up her sharp chin and made her silver mascara flit around. The two women had hated each other for as long as they knew each other: “Your daughter is getting so beautiful, even more beautiful than when she was a child with her marvelous blond hair, her big blue eyes…” said the blabbermouth, flooding Tina with details.
Tina jumped as bitten by a snake. Her rage was so over-powering that she promised herself to make Tilla, this little person who reminded her she was no longer eighteen years old, vanish from the surface of the earth. But how to get rid of her own daughter without leaving any evidence? Her anger dissipated when she realized her client was still talking, explaining that a famous jeweler, Cleftan, had just been completely stripped by “invisible” burglars. “Invisible”, repeated Tina, suddenly transported into the world of a Machiavelli plan. How could I take advantage of that? She knew these “Artists” and she came up with an idea that put her mind to ease. She was very pleased with herself.
Meanwhile, somewhere in the city,
The Artists were celebrating their success. Happy was trying to wipe up a wine mark on his white and red-check shirt. His protruding belly had blown off two buttons and the menu of preceding days was mapped on his shirt, from starters to dessert. As usual, he was wearing his old black shoes, full of the mud accumulated during his night rambles.
Alone, standing away, Doc, another one of the gangsters, looked very busy. Always flanked with his perfect suit and luxury shoes, he was making the inventory of the loot. His yellowish face invaded by straight dark hair turned crimson in front of each coin, and lightened up once in a while with thundering laughter.
Suddenly, he stopped on a gold ring, tried it on his little finger: “I feel so close to gold”. The shouts of indignation of Grumpy interrupted his sensual daydreaming, which upset him so much that he was shaking. All noise ceased: everybody feared the boss, especially when his temples started to pulse and his face became scarlet red.
Grumpy tidied up his light blue Burlington shoes. He was the only one capable of standing up to the chief anger. Straight out, Doc stifled him: “We must get in touch with this Tina thief, she is the only one who can fence the goods.” That was more than Grumpy could take: “She’s still going to pocket the maximum while we take all the risks. I can’t stand her arrogance. She always comes at nap time and disturbs me. She comes in, opens the windows and creates unbearable air drafts. In fact, Grumpy had decided to kill her since the day she had called him scrawny. He dwelled on his vengeance every single day.
The Chief turned towards Bashful. He was wearing green clothing as usual, dressed with care and old-school elegance. His touch of class and old-looking aspect called for respect, even from Doc, the chief himself. Physically, and excepted from Dopey, Bashful was the weakest of the Seven Dwarfs. He kept himself in the background during the arguing, as long as he could save face. He talked little, and stuttered immediately when asked to speak, so nobody spoke to him. In fact, Bashful was much less shy people thought, and, once the ice was broken, he was an implacable quibbler. The chief liked him much and often head to his advice. These were the times when Bashful let his scornful look out, silent, disdainful, watching the other members of the gang from the corner of his eye.
They came up with a simple strategy: They had to blackmail the old woman. But how?
The night had been long. The thieves had lived through strong emotions, they were exhausted. It was just past 10:00 pm. The shop they used as hideaway, a bakery called “Doc Laboratory” for his great love for bread, was now bustling with activity.
Suddenly, a series of “explosions” took the thieves out of their deep thoughts. It was Sneezy, having another attack. Like a tap suddenly open, his face flooded, burning his nose and eyes. Each violent sneeze made the windows vibrate. The wide warm wool hood Dopey always kept on his head was shaking. Sneezy took off a white handkerchief from the breast pocket of his black shirt.
Sleepy realized that his dozing was over. He slowly put on his brown shoes, scratched his ears diligently and turned the radio on. Sleepy loved to listen to classical music. Luckily a concert was on. It was the Four Seasons of Vivaldi. Sleepy took off his shoes and socks, exposing his itchy toes and soles, slumped his enormous fat body in an armchair and started weeping. Soon, Sneezy imagined himself at sea and this image triggered a torrent of tears interrupted by noisy bursts of laughter. Bashful too liked these moments, when he could rock himself to the sound of music and cry abundantly as if he was a baby in the arms of his mother. Dopey, as all little children, did not resist for too long to the pleasure of weeping with the others.
All was right, Sneezy was not going to alert the neighborhood of their presence any longer but the gang was now neutralized. Grumpy stood up abruptly. Music made him crazy. He slipped into his green and light blue madras jacket, adjusted his blue tie and went out, muttering swearing words. He needed a breath of fresh air.
Doc hided the loot in the safe place, and then swallowed a hot coffee spiked with two fingers of whisky.
The gang dozed off.
Doc and Sleepy snored loudly, which woke up Sneezy and Dopey. Sneezy stood up, checked that all the doors were perfectly locked, and turned on the kitchen lamp for Dopey who was used to sleep with a light on, and might get up and walk, or start yelling in the middle of night. Dopey was wearing a huge beige shirt, his inseparable hood had fallen off, and he looked like an obstinate and serious monk with a balding head. Bashful also needed the kitchen light to sleep peacefully but nobody knew about it. He never mentioned it. Every evening, he expected Sneezy’s little routine.
They finally all fell asleep.
Time was flowing fast that day,
Tina, heavily made-up, was wearing her black and silver panther dress adorned with her shiny and precious jewels. She had a good plan: she would send the “girl” to the bakery under the protection of Tony, her loyal henchman. She sniggered: “It’s in the bag”.
She found Tony at the snack bar, pigging out on two mustard hot-dogs and an enormous ice cream. Tony hated to be disturbed during his breakfast. So, she sat down, ordered her tenth coffee and lit up a long, thin American cigarette.
Secretly, Tony has always been in love with Tilla. He listened to her while eating a huge jar of pickles. When Tony started to eat so fast, it meant he was annoyed, but Tilla did not notice it. She was too happy to think about Tilla disappearing forever.
Tony was fat, always dirty, he hated cold water, and bathing was to repulsive of a task for him to even think of it. His bad temper and his sullen aspect justified the authority his mistress treated him with. He knew well that he didn’t stand a chance with Tilla, as she was like a little flower with a lot of her romantic charm. He would not kill her. Rather, he would protect her.
On this Full Moon night, Tony followed Tilla to the bakery. His right toe was so painful that he was in agony. He admitted that his copious meal had been abundantly washed down with beer wine and liquors, and knew this was calling for a massive diarrhea later on.
Tony could not keep his eyes off Tilla. He shivered: she was sitting in an armchair and the cleavage of her pink dress revealed a gracious neck. A river of pearls fell down her breast. Her baby blue handbag was on the floor. Exhausted by the heat of the day, she must have sat on the chair and fell asleep quickly. He kept looking at her. He stayed there, watching her for hours until fatigue got the best of him, and then only he fell asleep.
It was time for our fearsome Dwarfs to wake up.
“Grumpy” was the first one to get up. He was in a very bad mood as usual and did not wait a second to stir up some trouble. Paternalist, Doc was pleased. He got everybody to calm down and asked Happy to visit Tina. He was an excellent mediator with great philosophical knowledge - he faithfully read the Reader Digest - and his jovial-fellow look always impressed people favorably, providing of course that he had cleaned himself up.
Transformed by a good night sleep, Happy, the emissary, received the last recommendations and went out the door, followed by the others. The Night was very clear but he stumbled on Tilla, although he did not wake her up. The Seven Dwarfs had never seen such a marvelous creature.
“Doc” understood immediately the advantage of this discovery and ordered to catch, attach, and hide Tilla into the back shop. “Dopey” was dripping with sweat from head to toes. “Sneezy” observed her suspiciously, “Bashful” had of course blushed into an intense red. As for “Sleepy,” he was busy again scratching some parts of his body we will not describe here. “Grumpy” was stretching while walking back and forth at the same time. “Happy” busted out of laughter while philosophizing on Diana and Venus. “Sneezy” emitted a sound beginning with an endless stuttering, as if he had something important to say. Suddenly, “Sneezy could no longer hold it. The perfume of this young woman had got the best of him. Suddenly he took a deep breath, but his wide inspiration was immediately blocked by 4 hands.
Tilla woke up surrounded by of seven pairs of eyes. She screamed and started crying, unbeknownst to the fact that her tears were a formidable weapon. All were instantly charmed and captivated by her beauty and sweetness. She offered to make tea, the best joke they ever heard. They could not stop laughing! It was time to go out for work.
Tony just woke up when he saw them go away, the seven. Besides him was an empty chair, where had Tilla disappeared? Tilla had forgotten Tony, Tina, and her studies. This place was much better than any theater. She was singing, she loved this doll’s house and the little extraordinary creatures looking like children. Tilla decided it will be her paradise. She would first clean the mess and then prepare a good soup. She started dancing.
Tina had gone to play baccarat,
Mainly to flirt around. “Happy” took her aside and filled her in on the new events while offering gin and whisky. Since Tilla was cooking for her dwarfs, Tina would provide dessert. It would be a wonderful poisoned cake. After dessert, she’ll pocket all: the jewels and her vengeance.
The Seven Dwarfs came back. They were surprised and happy with their new house. “Happy” and “Bashful” went straight to the cake. “Bashful” thought he would share it in 3 slices: one for him, the second for “Happy”, and the rest for the other dwarfs. “Happy” knew very well that most of the cake will be his as, “Bashful” was fond of sweets but he always took on more than he could chew.
“Dinner time,” Said Tilla. Come on “Doc”, this red suits you nicely but now I said it’s time to eat. “Doc” added wine to his soup, “Grumpy” added pepper, ignoring the thought of the pain his hemorrhoids would cause the day after. “Sneezy” found the food was not salty enough as always, and he dipped big pieces of bread into his soup. “Dopey” dove his bald head into the steam of the soup, this heat was so good for his headache. “Happy” was smelling, sniffing, tasting, and swallowing. “Sleepy” appreciated a meal without meat, as the only thought of meat disgusted him.
Sweet time arrived,
The recipe of this marvelous cake will remain a secret, we just know that strychnine was the poison. Only one escaped from this murder: “Grumpy”.
The story would be very sad and not so authentic if it stopped here.
A peddler passing by dropped a few granules into the mouth of every one of our characters, just in time to save our heroes.
This story was inspired by an amazing real clinical experience.
