What is the necessity to use insufficiently proved medicines in homeopathic practice?

Respected Sir,
Are thousands of insufficiently proved medicines necessary for homeopathic prescribing? Can a large crowd of people defend the country as efficiently as a small well trained army?Are not such medicines an unnecessary burden on the repertory?


I don’t know much about military tactics, but I get your point. Some remedies end up in the repertory based on the fact that they repeatedly cured some symtom, others because they produced symptoms during accidental poisonings. While provings are the most in depth and reliable method, we can’t ignore the other. Some repertories provide the source for the symptoms. We certainly don’t want poorly gathered or imagined symptoms ending up in the repertory. Alan V. Schmukler
