Homeopathic remedies related to music.

E. W. Hubbard, M.D. New York.
Presented by Dr Robert Séror

J.A.I.H. N° 11-12, 1964, pages 311 to 313

Boenninghausen, Boericke, Gentry, Kent, Knerr, Phatak, Roberts, T. F. Allen

Christmas is connected in our minds with music, whether we harken to the Herald Angels singing or hear the church bells ringing at the frosty midnight, or whether the children listen for the Santa Claus sleigh bells or the elders sing hymns by the fireside, or the groups carol in the snow on Christmas eve outside the windows of Beacon Hill at either Craiche or Krippen.

In studying the remedies greatly influenced by music, one must begin somewhere.

Take Kent's Repertory sixth edition ; Mind, sensitive, music, to, page 78, and you have twenty-one remedies, only three in highest degree ; Nat. c., Nux v., and Sep.

Not satisfied with the extent of this list I combed the entire repertory for allusions to music :

Now that we have listed the homeopathic remedies relating to music it remains for us to make a connection between these remedies and the historical account of the influence of music given by Reed, in the first part of our Triptych, and in the possible help to the Autistic children into whose self-immolation Nordoff has admitted us as the Pied-Piper into the mountain.

The homeopathic Chronic Constitutional Remedy is inevitably both soothing and releasing.

What Lyc., Phos., Sulph., and Thuja, can do for night terrors !

How Zinc speeds up the lagging nerves, the power of Tarantula over trembling, of Mygale over the writhings of chorea !

Nux vomica can introduce rhythm into the functions.

Sepia which so loves to dance, can bring feelings to the most indifferent.

The melancholic are reached by the sodiums whose very life is music ; the failing memory is jogged by Lyc. and Mercury.

Crocus steadies the hysteric, and Ambra soothes the tremulous.

Aur. finds salvation from its unspoken and dangerous despair in the language of music.

Cic.'s twitching becomes more rhythmic and tolerable.

The lump of only partly incarnated flesh which is Med., that great remedy for impermeable moronics, develops toward normalcy.

There is a whole vast field in which different musical instruments could be studied in relation to the types of mental and emotional illness.
Thanks for this, Gina! I'm going to grab every bit of info here and put it in my notes - a whole new section, and so obviously important. Yet, this is the first time I've seen this info brought together.
Thanks for your reply Heidi- I came across this handy bit just in time. Me-Gina again too much thinking- I have always asked myself:"why does certain type of music generate emotions in people,what makes us tick regards to the interaction of music?"..............And here we have a combination repertory analysis for us to use.
Love it if we could put ourselves into this conversation;
Lets start with me- I study the most complex books better when I am surrounded by really fast loud heavy metal music! (I even think that is a bit odd)If its too quiet I cannot study, cannot concentrate.
Anyone else want to add here------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Gina
I found following rubrics!
MIND / CONCENTRATION / Active / music, while listening
MIND / CONCENTRATION / Active / work or music with intensity, engaged in
Fraxinum americana, Germanium metallicum
MIND / WORK / Impossible / music without rhythm agg.
This is a wonderful starting point for a discussion. Thank you for posting. Sometimes I think I could not live without music, Gina. Besides listening to the radio, moving with the rhythm of music, I do love to sing. The only music not in my preference is heavy metal, sounds of cacophony, raucous screaming and screeching that some people consider music. Harmonious tones sound sweet. Many of my favorites are posted as videos here on HWC.
Sure Debby- And what are your pref. for music? What makes Miss Debby tick?
Music has definite links to our mind, therefore, the rubrics pertaining to music are extremely important.But these are useful only in those cases, where, very intense likings or aversions for music are present, and it comes voluntarily from the patient.We can't ask it as a leading question,during our case taking, since that admission may not carry any value in selection of remedy.
Correct Dr. Sushil-
I agree,Ask an open ended question such as-" how do you feel about music?"-or "what is your reaction to music?"
The most difficult questions to ask in a casetaking are ;"are you sympathetic?"-Everyone says Yes!(even if they are not)
Another one- Have you ever had any STD's-Everyone says "NO"
Same applies to music-If you ask"do you like music?" 99% say;yes of course-
In my opinion, music coming from any source is a music. I had attended live concert,and listened the music through my ipod. Much depends upon my own mental conditions/status at that point of time, rather than the source.
Homoeopathy & Music : A very Good combination .If you go through the MIND section of Repertory , you will find so many informations ( already stated here ).
Music -several varieties,several modes,several types- do different action on the mind . Even by liking of perticular type of music helps to select a similimum.
As Gina stated " I study the most complex books better when I am surrounded by really fast loud heavy metal music! (I even think that is a bit odd)If its too quite I cannot study,cannot concentrate."
Now by analysing -Liking of heavy metal music /can not concentrate + analysis of other sign n symptoms - you can reach to the states of a pt. means you can select a similimum on the basis of - The Mental Generals , The Modalities & even on the basis of The Constitution also .
Here the only difficult task is to find out the appropriate rubrics...
So some time Music help a lot to find out correct similimum...
Though not related to homeopathy, I would like to add to the knowledge of my friends the following -


Music-thanatology is a professional field within the broader sub-specialty of palliative care. It is a musical/clinical modality that unites music and medicine in end of life care. The music-thanatologist utilizes harp and voice at the bedside to lovingly serve the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the dying and their loved ones with prescriptive music.

Prescriptive music is live music that responds to the physiological needs of the patient moment by moment. For example, by observing vital signs such as heart rate, respiration and temperature, the music-thanatologist provides music that is tailored to each specific situation. The warmth of this living music can bring solace, dignity and grace to those nearing the ultimate journey at the end of life.

This music can help to ease physical symptoms such as pain, restlessness, agitation, sleeplessness and labored breathing. It offers an atmosphere of serenity and comfort that can be profoundly soothing for those present. Difficult emotions such as anger, fear, sadness and grief can be relieved as listeners rest into a musical presence of beauty, intimacy and compassion.

Music-thanatology is not intended to entertain or distract the patient. Instead, this music allows the patient to enter into the unbinding process of letting go in his or her own very personal way. It affords families a chance to be with their loved one in a very intimate yet safe atmosphere where words are not necessary and the words that are said can come from a deep place, aided by the music.

Since antiquity, music and medicine have a long tradition as allies in healing. Music-thanatology is a contemporary field rooted in that same tradition. It has developed over the past three decades through the foundational work of Therese Schroeder-Sheker. Today there are music-thanatologists practicing throughout the United Sates and in several other countries around the world.

As medical technology becomes even more advanced, its practitioners recognize that there is suffering that eludes even the most sophisticated medical treatment. Many physicians and caregivers welcome music vigils as an integral form of care that offers an opportunity for relieving suffering and bringing comfort.
Effect of Music:
-Morning Ragas/Soft Indian classical instrumental musics( Santoor,Flute-Bansuree,String-Sitar etc) are good for Hypertension,G.I.problems,Migrain,Morning sickness,Mental problems etc.
-Rythmic Music ( Tabla,Pakhawaj,Drums & different Percussions ) are good for Truma,Paralysis,Artheritis,Asthama etc.
-Evening & Night Ragas/Western classicals are good for Stress n strain,Sugar problem,Sleep problem,Pregnency etc.
-Hard music is suitable for Sports persons , Creative persons during day time only.
