The following homeopathic remedy profile power points stem from lectures during the Professional Certificate Program and do not represent complete information about homeopathic remedies. These profiles only reflect a minuscule fraction of the complete remedy pictures described in the extensive homeopathic literature (materia medica). For additional study of remedies see the books listed in the remedy power points or go to Course Materials.
A remedy profile (or picture) is compiled through homeopathic drug testing (provings) with healthy individuals. Two centuries of homeopathic provings established that a substance capable of producing certain symptoms when given to a healthy person will cure those same symptoms in an ill person.
Based on the premise of “Like Cures Like” or “The Law of Similars”, homeopathic remedies are prescribed on a very individualized basis. Rather than treating a particular diagnosis or a single symptom homeopaths usually focus on how a person experiences symptoms and how these symptoms match the symptoms of a remedy profile.
Manufactured according to strict pharmacological methods homeopathic remedies are made from plant, animal or mineral substances. For example, frequently used plant remedies like Arnica, Daisy, Chamomile and Poisoned Ivy have been used with bruises, joint pains, teething and rashes. Common mineral remedies like Table Salt, Oyster shell calcium, Iron and Gold have been helpful in treating chronic depression, migraines and constipation. Remedies made from animals, like venom from the Rattlesnake, Copperhead and other snakes are known to stop confusion, sadness, various bleeding problems and severe throat infections.
While acute treatment is often simple and used in family situations with rapid results, a professional evaluation (case taking) is usually needed for chronic treatment. The art of homeopathy is to understand a person well and match their symptoms to the best fitted remedy. With that in mind, the remedy power points available here cannot serve as treatment advice but are meant to spark your interest in the fascinating study of homeopathy.
