Materia Medica Tips – 12
Well, today’s tip is not directly related to MM but relevant to homeopathic materia medica. It is related to the Nosodes Survey (few of the colleagues indicated their interest). This was a clinical survey undertaken by me and Dr Bharti Arora, published in a Brazilian Journal (REVISTA DE HOMEOPATIA 2015; 78(1/2): 8-13). Below is the Abstract and Link to Download the Full PDF.
Nosodes are homeopathic preparations of organic materials derived from inactivated disease products, cultures of microorganisms (e.g., bacteria, fungi and viruses) or parasites, infected or pathologically changed material or decomposition products from humans or animals, rendered safe during the homeopathic manufacturing process. In homeopathic clinical practice, nosodes have an important and indispensable part. They are frequently indicated as common, intercurrent, anti-miasmatic, or acute remedies, etc., depending on the physician’s perception. But there are variations in their clinical use, which might be influenced by the background knowledge, experience, expertise and preconceived notions of practitioners. The present survey sought to find the actual use made of nosodes in homeopathic clinical practice.
