Allopathy: the dominant medical system in the West (and elsewhere) using the doctrine of opposites Aetiology: the same as causation. (American spelling 'etiology') Constitutional = (also known as 'classical', 'totality', 'Hahnemannian', 'Kentian') means the remedy is prescribed for the perceived whole of the patient; includes symptoms and characteristics often with special attention to the emotional and psychological qualities. It is the epitome of 'Holistic' medicine. Polypharmacy = the giving of several different remedies, sometimes in different potencies in the same dose. The opposite of 'constitutional' Acute = any ailment of short duration e.g. all infectious diseases. (Acute ailments may become chronic if unresolved) An acute ailment is self-limiting and of short duration i.e. it will usually either kill you or make you stronger. (build immunity) Chronic = of long duration (does not mean 'really bad') e.g. eczema,IBS, ME, PMT, asthma. (Chronic ailments may have acute episodes) Chronic ailments are those that don't usually resolve of their own accord, unlike acute ailments Concurrently = 'happening at the same time as' concurrent symptoms: apparently differing sets of symptoms occurring at the same time. concurrent remedies: a remedy taken alongside or at the same time as another remedy Dyscrasia = - an abnormal or physiologically unbalanced state of the body
Lay homeopath is any homeopath who isn't also qualified as a medical doctor. OTC=over the counter. i.e. bought from a shop, pharmacy etc.= non prescription medicines Palliation = temporary lessening of symptoms without cure or addressing the true nature of the problem Pluralist - one who does not adhere to the principle of single dose/single remedy, but who uses more than one remedy at a time Presenting symptoms = the symptoms the patient initially considered most important and which they 'presented' to the homeopath Prostrated = completely exhausted, wiped out, too weak to even speak, cannot get up, lying flat Repertory = is a book with a list of all the symptoms organised into headings with associated remedies Rubrics - headings in the repertory that connect remedies to symptoms Simillimum = the single remedy that matches the whole of a patients symptomology and characteristics in its entirety Tautopathic, tautopathically = using the 'same' substance potentised as a remedy (rather than a 'similar' substance) Totality - the picture of disease that includes ALL symptoms, including the mental, general and particular. Unicist - one who adheres to the principle of single remedy/single dose
The split dose The classical "split dose" is prepared by dissolving one dose of dry remedy (i.e. one pellet) in a glass of water and then giving a teaspoon from that solution as a dose. The remainder is discarded. Giving a split dose is firmly anchored in classical homeopathy. In the search for the minimal dose, Hahnemann explored smaller and smaller remedy doses. As a consequence, he wanted to divide even a single pellet into smaller doses, and dissolving it in water achieves just that. It turned out that in doing so, the remedy acts much deeper and gentler than when given dry on the tongue in one whole dose. This mode of administering a remedy was introduced in the 5th edition of the Organon and has been even expanded in the 6th edition. According to the 6th editon, all remedies prepared as LM potencies (the only one Hahnemann advocates in his last edition) are to be given as a "split dose." The other way to interpret the term "split dose" is the practice of giving, say, 2 pellets in the evening and 2 the next morning, instead of all 4 at once. The rationale behind that being the cyclical nature of the body's sensitivity to remedies. By spacing them 12 hours or so apart, you are more likely the body when the remedy works the best. This is not the classical "split dose."
dynamis - life energy, vital force potentized - usually refers to a substance prepared according to homeopathic pharmaceutical standards. This means that it has gone through serial dilution and succussion remedy - medicine, as in homeopathic remedy succussion - the process of forcefully striking a homeopathic remedy against a firm surface vital force - the energy that maintains life in the individual (see Organon aphorisms 9-12)
