Homeopathic Remedies at a Glance

About fishes, it is revealed that they lay eggs at a particular time during full moon. Each fish lays thousands of eggs on the seashore and swims back in the current. It has been observed that soon after the eggs convert into little fishes and reach the ocean they flock around their own mother. Millions and millions of fish and thousand times more new growths do not fail to reach their respective places. It is all by natural intuition.

The science of homeopathy also seeks personal intimacy which later on converts into natural intuition. It is only when we see things superficially without love and nearness does the confusion creep in and we feel trapped in the network of symptoms. If we are careful with a bit of devotion, the science unfolds its glory and we find it absolutely uncomplicated.

“Individualization” is one of the words which is widely used in homeopathy. Homeopathy recognizes the individuality of each patient by the process of case taking. Constitutional remedies are then given to the patient by going through the long process of detailed case-receiving and individualization of the patient as well as the remedies. There is little use of “illness-specific” remedies in homeopathy; but, there are certain situations where we cannot overlook their use. In emergency situations when we don’t have time to take a detailed case or when the patient’s condition is deteriorating, there may not be time to take a case history. In such cases we have to rely on specific remedies. In this regard, below is a list of remedies with some of the specific symptoms which they are known for:

By giving immediate relief to the patient we can win their trust over to homeopathy and us. But a homeopath can never become solely dependent on the specific remedies because only constitutional remedies can help us to get the permanent cure of the disease!!
