2. Source & History

Ferula sumbul, or Musk-root of commerce reaches our market through Russia. Choice sumbul has a strong odor of musk, is resinous internally, and is aromatic and bitter to the taste.

Sumbul is a stimulant and tonic to the nervous system and historically it has been recommended in low typhus fevers, in gastric spasm, hysteria, delirium tremens, diarrhoea, dysentery, leucorrhoea, gleet, chlorosis, asthma, chronic bronchitis, and other maladies.

The Homeopathic tincture is made from the powdered root.

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

Sumb is usually used empirically and hence its employment is traditionally reserved to symptomatic non constitutional prescribing

Notwithstanding the above 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 symptoms occur together eg Asthma with worms or
Throat/respiratory conditions with hysteria.

In terms of Nebel's Constitutional classification the gay, happy, mirthful mentals together with the infiltrative conditions of cough, cold and general congestive symptomology, presents a picture of the Phosphoric group.

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.

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.
