2. Source & History

Historically called Muriatic acid or spirits of salt Hydrochloric acid was produced from Sulphuric acid (vitriol) and common salt in 800 AD by the alchemist Jabir Ibn Hayyan. It was also known to European alchemists as spirits of salt or acidum salis (salt acid) names which are still used to this day.
Today it is produced mainly as a byproduct from the Solvay process of manufacturing sodium carbonate (soda ash) from salt and limestone. It is used widely in the chemical industry as a metal solvent and oxidiser. Because of these characteristics hydrochloric acid has been listed under UN narcotic legislation for its use in the production of heroin, cocaine, and methamphetamine.
Hydrochloric acid is found in Gastric acid and is one of the main secretions of the stomach where it acidifies the stomach to a pH of 1 - 2. The Gastric juices consists mainly of hydrochloric acid together with enzymes such as pepsin and mucilage.

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

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.
