2. Source & History (cont)
Most species of Thuja are commonly known as arborvitae, Latin for "tree of life." In 1536, the French captain Jacques Cartier was on his second voyage of discovery to Canada. He sailed up the St. Lawrence River with a crew of 110 seamen and a pair of Huron boys he had picked up on his first voyage two years earlier. After months at sea without fresh fruit or vegetables, the crew was suffering from scurvy, a potentially fatal vitamin C deficiency. On his way upriver, he left the two natives in their home village, expecting neither to survive the serious scurvy attack, which had beset them during the Atlantic crossing. Later Cartier returned to the village and found the two boys fully recovered. He appealed to the natives to show him how the cure was achieved, and was shown how to chop and boil the foliage of Thuja occidentalis to extract the medicine that would cure the crew. He named the plant "tree of life" and brought samples home, making it the first North American tree to be introduced to Europe

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

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.
