I agree with you Dr. Rafeeque!
Comment by Dr Muhammed Rafeeque on November 2, 2010 at 11:55pm
True! Homeopathy is effective for all types of cases. Actually what I mean is, when aetiology is definite, they will apply some specific drugs to suppress the symptomatology. The patient also feels better temporarily. Hence, we may not get such patients during the initial stages. Whereas, if the aetiology is not known, many good modern medical doctors refer the cases to other systems. Our senior homeopaths used to get a number of cases like peritonitis, terminal stages of Typhoid etc. But, now they know the aetiology and block the symptoms by some specific methods.

Dr. Rafeeque, Thanks. It does not matter if the etiology is known or unknown, Homoeopathy is always better. If we know etiology, we can remove maintaining cause or causa occasionalis and speed up the recovery of the case.

The exact etiology for PMS is unknown, which means homeopathy is the best for its management!

Dear Debby, Thanks. After repertorizing the most common symptoms stated above in the article, the list of indicated remedies is obtained.
Comment by Debby Bruck on November 1, 2010 at 11:25pm
Thank you so much for this fascinating blog of information. I would be interested to know about the list of remedies in decreasing order presented here. How did that list come about?

Did you show here the most common symptoms or rubrics used for a woman experiencing PMS?
Maybe other HWC members will add some from life cases they have cured.
