2. Source & History

The discovery of citric acid has been credited to the 8th century Persian alchemist Jabir Ibn Hayyan However it was not until 1784 that Citric acid was first isolated by the Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele, who crystallized it from lemon juice. In 1893, C. Wehmer discovered that Penicillium mold could produce citric acid from sugar. but it wqas not until World War I when Italian citrus exports were disrupted that commercial Citric acid production became significant.

Citric acid is one of a series of compounds involved in the physiological oxidation of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates to carbon dioxide and water. These metabolic reactions are known by various names including Citric Acid Cycle, the Krebs cycle, and the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle. Citric acid is the first acid in the cycleand any disturbance to it will severely influence life by profoundly upsetting the transformation of glucose into energy.
.
Its main uses are as a flavoring and preservative in food and beverages as well as in the soap and laundry detergent industries where its chelating ability makes it particularly useful.

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.

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.
