Creating Waves of Awareness


Dear Drs.

We often find in literature, the so called inimical remedies. Many times, I have seen the inimical remedies do wonder before or after the so called inimical medicine, if properly indicated and the similimum to that time's particular portrait of symptoms. In my opinion, any dissimilar remedy, any improper potency or the wrong repeatition of doses all are inimicals. Then why the prejudiced decision of inimicals? e.g. Rhus tox and Apis, Caust and Phos etc.

Any entirely dissimilar remedy, any improper potency or the wrong repeatition of doses all are inimicals. No prejudiced criteria should be made for inimical remedies. The repeatition of same dose till the action of the previos dose is not exhausted, is inimical. Sys Kent.....

Dr. Mas,
Sodium chloride is taken with daily diet producing no abnormal change in life. If taken in large quantities, it may show the symptoms of poisoning only. But, in Homoeopathy, after the process of dynamization, the inherent powers of its huge action are aroused and it produces a wide variety of signs and symptoms in the prover. The inimical action, antidote and complementory actions are, therefore not possible to understand in terms of chemistry.

We are confused with the few terminologies, which are similar with terms used in chemistry but these words have different meanings in homeopathy. For example, Sodium Chloride is a compound in chemistry but in homeopathy it is considered to be a single medicine :) Similarly the word antidote or inimical have different meanings are perspective both in chemistry and in homeopathy. In homeopathy "Antidote" does not mean to chemically neutralize the action of one chemical from another just like we do in acid base reaction in chemistry. In Homeopathy, the word "Antidote" means the medicine has few opposite symptoms as compared to the first administered medicine or presents an aggravated condition of the first medicine that is to be antidote. If bryonia is given and pain is aggravated then it may be antidote by rhus tox, camphor, tea, tobacco or strong odor etc.

Really. That is true. Partially similar remedies often change the direction of cure either towards palliation, suppression or deterioration of the case. Then we can see the action of a single remedy as inimical. There is no need of a dose of another inimical remedy. It is inimical of its own action in that case.

If you are going to consider Phos for a patient then never consider caust although it contains few symptoms of the patient. if you are going to decide caust finally for a patient then do not confuse with another remedy Phos, although it may contain few other symptoms of the patient.

Thanks Dr. Mas,
I agree with you. Any remedy or even repeatition of the same remedy even in same potency is inimical to the former if the action of the previous dose in not exhausted.

The idea of Antidote and Inimincal is not based on chemicals it contain. Homeopathic medicine (Remedy in Potency form) is without any atoms or molecules, so if any one considers this and that potency can antidote another, then I think it is not scientific and not logical too. Yes, in low potency in in MT, one medicine has the property to change the property of another.

Rhus Tox is Complementary to Bryonia and also antidote Bryone. How funny it is when you think on chemical base a remedy is complementary and antidote at the same time. Lime water and Acid can't be complementary or antidote at the same time. But homeopathically Rhus is complemenary to Bryonia in all symptoms except on only one symptom i.e, Bryonia pain aggravates on motion but Rhus feels better with continous motion. On this symptom only, Rhus will antidote Bryonia and on rest of symtpoms it is complementary.

The same idea applies on inimical remedies. Homeopathically speaking, yes, homeo remedies are inimical based on symptoms but a badly prescribed remedy can become inimical to patient although not declared as inimical with group of remedies.

Simply, about Inimical remedies group, It is a clue for homeopaths that if a group of remedies ABC is coming in your mind as similimum for a patient for suggesting one remedy then another group of remedies XYZ can't be considered for prescription although it contains so many symptoms of the patient.

That's my understanding :)
Comment by Dr Rajneesh Kumar Sharma MD(Hom) on September 14, 2010 at 11:04pm
Yes, ofcourse!
If Rhus tox is not at all acting, and the current picture looks similimum to Apis, there is no chance of inimical action and the later will complete the process of cure.
