A medicine with huge potential for treating Alzheimer’s, stroke, cancer and even Aids, the Christmas rose (Helleborus niger, or black hellebore) is in the process of being rediscovered by doctors and medical practitioners. Once admired by Hippocrates, Paracelsus, and Hahnemann but long forgotten, the Christmas rose is proving effective once again—in both trials and clinical practice—for healing today’s serious illnesses. It is also being used to address many other conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in children, delayed brain maturation, in gynecology and for joint disorders. Written by a practicing medical doctor, this book offers comprehensive treatment regimes and numerous case studies demonstrating the successful use of this important plant-based medicine.

In placing the remedy in historical context, Johannes Wilkens reviews its use by significant figures over the centuries, from Adamus Lonicerus and the founders of herbalism in the Middle Ages, as well as Samuel Hahnemann and homeopathy, to Rudolf Steiner and modern anthroposophic medicine. Vividly illustrated with color photographs, this pioneering work outlines the critical role that the Christmas rose can play in treating the illnesses of our time.
