Matridonal Remedies of the Humanum Family: Gifts of the Mother 

This is the newest of Melissa’s books, years in its conception. It pulls together strands to weave into the story of the Matridonal Remedies, part of the Humanum Family:

  • Lac Humanum
  • Folliculinum
  • Placenta Humana (Welsh)
  • Vernix Casoesa
  • Amniota Humana
  • Umbilicus Humanus

“As I have worked with these important remedies over the years, I have come to believe that the most profound gift we as humans receive is the sense of self. It is first bestowed in its earthly form in the womb. Could it not therefore be true that when this sense of self is lost, it can be retrieved through the very materials that gave it to us in the first place? These substances are made for the creation of our humanness. It is their sole purpose, as they are discarded as soon as we no longer need them.” – Melissa Assilem

This is a thought provoking and empowering book full of information for women and those who love and care for them.

Melissa says, “Our self image is a major factor in determining our internal health, but before we can feel good about ourselves we need to unlearn the falsehoods of our culture.” She demonstrates the importance of strong and powerful older women in our society, using myth, and archeological evidence, poetry, and remedy pictures. She reveals how HRT as a strategy for treating women is a continuum from the past.

Melissa shares her personal perceptions, learnedcrone wisdom and insights as an experienced homeopathic practitioner. Among the innovative remedy pictures are Sepia, Cimicifuga, Folliculinum, Lachesis, Arsenicum, Helonius, and Senecio. (Visit Shop to Purchase)
