2. Source & History

Lead was probably one of the first metals to be produced by man. The oldest lead piece is in the British Museum and dates from 3800 A.D. The Chinese produced metallic lead about 3000 B.C.  Because lead is non reactive to water the Romans used it for making water pipes and lining baths and also for processing boiling grapes in wine making. In medieval times lead came to be used for roofing, coffins, cisterns, tanks, and gutters, and for statues and ornaments, for the strips joining the pieces of coloured glass in church windows.

There is a weak, weary, slowness of speech, thought, understanding and perception.

8. Constitutional Prescribing

MoreButton
Click More above for further information on Constitutional types & treatment

The use of Plb is usually restricted to symptomatic situations. However the changing and contrasting symptomology resembles that of a much broken and incoordinated state which aligns to Nebel's fluoric constitution. 
As always it is the patient picture that is important especially the mental & general manifestations which 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 in situations where two or more of the main symptoms occur together in the patient. For example
Colic and Paralysis
Impotence and Constipation
Epilepsy and Jaundice

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.
