Essential Small Remedies for Success in Practice
Join Kim Elia as he explores a collection of lesser-known remedies which, though not well represented in our literature, are still extremely valuable in the course of clinical practice. Prescriptions requiring the use of lesser-known remedies are oftentimes not fully considered. This course aims to give both the student and practitioner the skills necessary to recognize the need for these remedies as well as how to effectively study, compare and contrast lesser-known remedies with our better-known polycrests.
In the course of working through numerous cases, and describing these remedies in close detail, Kim will look into some commonly-asked and seldom adequately answered questions, such as -
- What is a lesser-known remedy and what makes it so?
- Why are some remedies so poorly known, while others grow to the status of a polycrest?
- Why might we wish to consider a lesser-known remedy for a case, when it appears that a polycrest might do?
- Some remedies appear to be “large” in the context of specific pathologies (e.g., physical trauma) or localities (e.g., “bladder remedies”), while remaining “poorly” represented in a more general context - is it realistic to characterize remedies in this way?
- Can we recognize features in a case which might suggest that it is calling for a lesser-known remedy?
- How might we organize and examine our analysis, to best bring out a lesser-known remedy, when one is appropriate to the case?
- How can we best recognize the significance of a lesser-known remedy showing up in an analysis?
- What are some effective ways to study a lesser-known remedy in comparison with other remedies, including those “larger,” better-known remedies with which it might be confused?
Some of the Remedies that will be discussed in this course include:
Agraphis nutans, Aristolochia clematitis, Asteria rubens, Aurum iodatum, Ceanothus americanus, Cerastes cerastes, Derris pinnata, Mancinella, Melilotus officinalis, Oxalicum acidum, Ratanhia peruviana, Solanum tuberosum aegrotans, Thea chinensis and many more.
