How To Select A Homeopathic Remedy

The remedy that is best indicated is the one which is most suitable to the sum total of all symptoms with which he presents. All prominent mental, emotional and physical symptoms which have arisen during the acute illness should be taken into account - proper selection of the remedy must be based on the whole person. Homeopathic remedies stimulate the natural vital forces to encourage a quick return to health.



Principles Of Selecting Homeopathic Remedies

The following is a guide to the information you will need to correlate the illness to the symptoms of the medicine:

  • Possible cause: a fall, shock, grief, exposure to cold wind, chill, an insect sting, etc. For example Aconite has ailments from exposure to cold dry winds.

  • Mode of onset: sudden or gradual.

  • Location of the symptoms or the pain: for example, head pain may not be located in the whole head but only in the right temple as in Belladonna.

  • The type of pain: stitching, burning, tearing, throbbing, etc.

  • The modalities (what makes the symptoms better or worse): for example, better for cold, worse for movement, better for pressure, worse for lying down.

  • Sides: is it left sided or right sided?

  • Discharges: if there is discharge, what is its nature - color, consistency and color?

  • The general state: is he restless, cold, thirsty, desiring lemonade, wanting fresh air? (These symptoms are very important, as the whole person is affected.)

  • Mental and emotional symptoms: irritability, fearful, weepy, sighing. (Again these symptoms are very important as the whole person is affected.) Homoeopaths have found that where these are prominent, they must be in the symptom picture of the medicine for it to cure.

  • Examination and observation: redness, swelling of the affected part, for example, is the patient flushed or pale, are the pupils dilated?
