Explanation of Homeopathy and how it works by Michelle Bernard.
Introduction to Homeopathy (on-line course) by Sherri Nakken – so far the only course I’ve done so the only one I can recommend.
“Homeopathic Medicines for Pregnancy and Childbirth” by Dr. Richard Moskowitz. What applies to humans applies to cats too.
“Practical Homeopathy” by Vinton McCabe (not on many reading lists, but I found this book very clear and well-written)
“Complete Homeopathy Handbook” by Miranda Castro. Set text for Sherri Nakken’s course.
