Role Of Specific Medicine in Homeopathy 1

‘Individualization’ is one of the words, which is widely used in homoeopathy. Homoeopathy recognizes the individuality of each pt. By the process of cases taking constitutional remedies are given to the patient after going through the long process of case receiving & individualizing the pt. as well as the remedies. There is little use of illness specific remedies in homoeopathy. But there are certain situations when we cannot overlook their use. Such as;
1. In first-Aid situations.
2. In a therapeutic situation, where disease is to be treated rather than pt. or there are no clear indications of a remedy.
3. When it is impossible to take a full case for some reason & you wish to tide the pt. over with something rather than doing nothing.
4. In high turnover prescribing situations where there is insufficient time for individualizations.
In such cases we have to rely on specific remedies. In these regard, here is a collection of a list of remedies with some of the specific symptoms for which they are known. Knowledge of such homoeopathic remedies with their specific indications can help us to bring immediate relief to the pt. in cases of emergency.
It is important to emphasize over here that, these specific remedies are not directly prescribed on basis of disease diagnosis, but it is actually based on the idea of single symptom totality. This single symptom totality is formed by considering the causative factors, peculiar sensations, modalities and concomitants present with the chief complaint. So specific prescriptions on the basis of single symptom totality is homoeopathically justified.
