2. Source & History

Tin is also known by the Latin stannum which lends itself to the element's symbol of Sn a symbol which was sometimes interchangeable with the astrological symbol for the planet Jupiter.

 

It is one of the earliest known metals and because of its hardening effect was used originally as a component of bronze (a mix of copper with 15% tin) as early as 3500 BC.


Tin also resists corrosion from water as well as oxidation from air and as a consequence is used to preserve zinc, lead and steel fabrications. We have to thank British merchant Peter Durand for his impact on food preservation with his 1810 patenting of the tin can a process which forms a large part of the tin market to this day. This is why containers are called 'tin cans' even when produced from steel as there is always a small amount of tin incorporated as a preservative.


The Homeopathic trituration is made from the metal.

Click More above for further information on Constitutional types & treatment

Although Stan is widely prescribed symptomatically in the respiratory field there is a strong constitutional element especially where the patient has been getting old and feeble over a long period of time.

High potency Constitutional prescription may be used as in such instances as background together with a concurrent lower potency symptomatic remedy administered according to the Law of Similars in situations where two or more symptoms occur together eg
Respiratory symptoms with General lassitude (CFS)
Great melancholia & anguish with Weak extremities

In terms of Nebel's Constitutional classification its grouping is shared between Carbonic (weakness & hypoactivity) and Phosphoric (copious secretions)

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.
