The term ‘Homeopathic Materia Medica’ broadly refers to the collection of knowledge relating to the therapeutic (medicinal) properties of any specific substance used for curative purpose. The medicinal substance when given to a healthy “drug prover” will produce multitudinous symptoms in him. All these symptoms produced in various “drug provers” are verified, organized and compiled into the Homeopathic Materia Medica. In other words, it is an organized compilation of information about each and every remedy.
Every homeopath knows very well that searching for any specific symptom from numerous voluminous books is akin to searching for the proverbial “needle in the haystack”. It is an extremely tedious and time-consuming process – which many prefer to skip or cut-short in actual practice. This sort of compromise is unhealthy for the patient in specific and the growth of homeopathy in general. So, deep inside, every serious and dedicated homeopath eagerly desires a solution whereby one can search through these huge books in the shortest time possible.
Fortunately, homeopathic software such as HOMPATH, have been designed to do precisely that. These software have quick search features such as the “Materia Medica Search” feature of HOMPATH that will search for even the rarest or the most unusual symptom in the blink of an eye – almost magically. This ‘magical search’ effectively saves a tremendous amount of time and energy. It also brings to one’s attention those symptoms or related symptoms which one usually wouldn’t think of or consider.
For e.g. most Homeopaths are aware of remedies such as Hyos, Lach and Apis covering the symptom ‘Jealousy.’ However, the Materia Medica search also shows up remedies such as Staph, Op, Nux-v, etc. covering ‘Jealousy’ which would otherwise never be given thought to by most Homoeopaths. Thus, software such as HOMPATH can help every Homeopath see beyond the obvious and widen their Horizons, thus helping patients to improve their health.
One can compare the keynotes of two remedies side-by-side. One can also compare the individual sections of the two remedies, eg: Mind section of Bryonia alba and Rhus toxicodendron.
One can also find the “keynotes” of any remedy, including rare ones, for e.g. Hydrogenum, Germanium, Ozone, Chocolate which are very difficult to find in most books on Homeopathic Materia Medica.
