What is Inimical remedy in Homeopathy – Example of homeopathic Apis Mel & Rhus tox?

Posted by: kaushik Banerjee

What is Inmical remedy? If I have to give Apis Mel to a patient after I had administered Rhus tox, how long shall I wait(as the relation is inmical).Same with Bryonia & Lachesis? May it cause harm to the patient? & what is the correct methodology to administer inmical drugs if required urgently and how much time must we wait for to be safe?

A remedy that is inimical to another is a remedy that is disagreeing, incompatible, do not follow well. You can give an inimical remedy after the effect of the first homeopathic remedy is not noticeable, and this depends on the homeopathic remedy itself, the vitality of the patient, and the symptoms to be addressed. If you are not sure, one strategy is to give a remedy that would antidote Apis (Nat Mur is a known antidote to Apis).
In my experience, if the remedy does not have material dose (over 12C or 24X), the inimical relationship is not usually a problem.
I hope this helps.
