2. Source & History

Calcium sulphate occurs abundantly in nature. When calcium sulphate is dried it forms a powder known as gypsum. Plaster of Paris is made by mixing gypsum with water. Unlike mortar and cement it remains soft for some time after drying allowing it to be shaped and sculptured.
History indicates that despite the name, plaster of Paris was invented by the Egyptians. Paris became synonymous with this type of plaster in the 1600s thanks to a large nearby deposit of calcium sulphate. 
The homeopathic trituration is produced from the salt.

8. Constitutional Prescribing

As much of the evidence for this remedy relies upon clinical obsevations rather than provings it is less favoured for constitutional prescribing.
Nevertheles it fits the criteria of Nebel's Carbonic typology and as is the case with all constitional prescribing 
it  is the patient picture that is important especially the mental & general manifestations that are the key determinants for its use.
High potency Constitutional prescription may be used as background together with a concurrent lower potency symptomatic remedy administered according to the Law of Similars.

Tabular Materia Medica

Materia Medica (MM) is Latin for medical material. MMs are a listing of remedies together with their respective symptoms and differ from Repertories which are a listing of symptoms and illnesses.

 

This Tabular MM is not presented as an exhaustive comprehensive list of all that is known about a remedy. Rather the opposite. It is intended to be used only as an aid memoire to highlight the foundation upon which by further study and experience a fuller knowledge of homoeopathics can be obtained. Consider the Tabular MM as a word picture showing a black and white sketch of the remedys main essential characteristics upon which colour, shade and tone has still be painted.

 

Remember to rank case symptoms according to their hierarchy giving first priority to
Mentals & Generals when comparing the MM remedy picture of one remedy against another.

Further information on
The Hierarchy of Symptoms

may be had by clicking

Remember also that you don't need to match everything listed under a remedy to benefit from the remedy. All that is required is to find the closest remedy match for those case  symptoms which rank the highest and are the most troublesome. The easiest way to find remedy matches is by Repertorisation. 

 

For more information on Repertorisation click

Once the main case symptoms have been captured in say 4 - 6  remedies fine tune the final remedy selection manually by refering to the MM, or clicking the Further Information tabs or looking up any other approriate reference manual.
