2. Source & History

Trituration of rock salt/ common table salt
Variability and change is the keynote. This is because the remedy contains two elements in one (ie Sodium (Na) and Chlorine (Cl)) producing opposing symptoms in different individuals. Thus one individual may be thin and asthenic due to over elimination of body fluids whilst another may be rotund and flabby as a result of excess body fluid retention. The explanation for this paradoxical duality lies in the electrolyte balance which can be disturbed in either of two directions

3. Mentals & Generals

Great changeability. (ie depression and sadness followed by excitement and laughter.)
Ailments from grief and disappointed love.
Extremely sensitive with a strong desire to be left alone. Shy

Exceptional dryness or excessive moisture in any part of the body (ie skin. hair etc)
Kidney and sinus problems

Obesity

8. Constitutional Prescribing

This is a good example of how the same remedy can fit opposing Constitutional types in a paradoxical duality.
The remedy displays characteristics of Nebel's Phosphoric Constitutional type when a patient in spite of every effort continues to lose weight through demineralisation with slow and continued emaciation.
Conversely the remedy suits those patients  who either gain or are unable to lose weght because of fluid retention. In this later respect the remedy displays characteristics of Nebel's Calcic Constitutional type.
As in all Constitutional situations however it is the patient picture that is important especially the mental & general manifestations that are the key determinants for its Constitutional 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

For more information about evaluating Modalities click

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.
