Please Dr. help me..

What type of Tongue it is?

& its remedy indication?


Thank you.

Dear Kawsar,


The tongue looks like white coated, but not entirely. Coating is not there in central area, but both the edges are involved. The pink on the central area is not the discoloration but the continuation of the natural color of the tongue itself. So we can not tell it as centrally red. The appearence of the tongue is not mapped either.


So the inference is – the tongue appears as coated white on both the edges.


Let's look into Kent's repertory:


Pp.- 402

“....MOUTH / Discoloration / Tongue/ white.......

sides : Caust., cham., iod., kali-s.

right : Lob.

one : Rhus-t.

patches : Sang.......”

So our choice of rubric should be - “sides : Caust., cham., iod., kali-s.”


We should not make prescription on the basis of this particular rubric only, unless the other general level symptoms agree. As we are consulting Kent's repertory we must obey Kent's philosophy regarding the “evaluation of symptoms” as well. Otherwise it will lead a wrong road.





Thank you very much.

Yes Dr. Anand, what you have told is true. If we can convert the useful repertories in pictorial formats they will be very helpful references in day- to- day practices.

All the pictures used in the post are not mine. Some of them I have collected from internet.


Thank you sir for the post.We need this type of practical approach of the Kent's repertory for successful prescription.
Thanks a lot.

Dr Arindam,

                  This is the practical presentation, In this way we can learn,very helpful objective symp. in selection of homoeo. remedy.Sir, always you give the good & fruitful presentation. Thanks a lot---- I salute you..... 

One of the major works in this field is-


Title of the Book : “Repertory of the tongue symptoms”

Author : Douglass., Melford Eugene

Edition & Publisher : 1st Edition- 1896

                               Boericke & Tafel, Philadelphia


To compile this work author had gathered the informations from T. F. Allen's Encyclopaedia, E. M. Hale's New Remedies, Schuessler's Tissue Remedies and added plenty of notes from his own practice.


Later, in recent years one of my respected teachers Dr. M. Singh edited the work and republished it.
