Dr Dorothy Shepherd had wide experience both in Harley Street and in clinics in the poorer parts of London. Although she had leanings towards Homoeopathy during her student years, it was not until she visited the world-famous Dr J. T. Kent in the USA, and experienced great benefit from this therapy that she fully adopted this method of treatment in her practice.
Having embarked upon a career as a Homoeopath she studied the subject deeply and the more she learned the more she became convinced that it is the finest method of dealing with every type of ailment.
Being a true healer she believed that every sufferer should know of Homoeopathy and in order to make it more widely known she wrote Homoeopathy for the First Aider which gives simple instructions for the treatment of injuries and common ailments.
This book was an immediate success and she then decided to record her experiences in dealing with more serious illness and this book, The Magic of the Minimum Dose followed.
