Dana Ullman's newest book, The Homeopathic Revolution: Why Famous People and Cultural Heroes Choose Homeopathy, is a scholarly researched and popularly written book that confirms that many of the most famous people and cultural heroes of the past 200 years used, appreciated, and/or advocated for homeopathy, including 11 American presidents, 7 popes, Charles Darwin, Mother Teresa, Tina Turner, and many many more. The Physician to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth wrote the Foreword to this seminal work.
