The Homeopathic Therapeutics of Diarrhea, written by James B. Bell, is an excellent book which deals with the medicines that can be used for frequently occurring & obstinate diarrheas. One of the clinical repertories based on loose evacuations of the bowels. It was originally prepared for the personal use of the author as time-saving notes. The motive behind the book was not to include all remedies producing diarrhea, but only those remedies which have symptoms regarding;
· Type of stool.
· Condition of Aggravation, Amelioration & Causation.
1. Handy & very concise.
2. Contains rubrics related to diarrhea diseases with concomitants in one place.
3. In the first part common indications of remedies in diarrhea are given.
The book is divided into two parts.
Part 1: Remedies with their indications - explains 141 Remedies which deal with the following points;
· Type of stool
· Before stool
· During stool
· After stool
· During convalescence – given only a few drugs.
Under each of the best-known remedies, some symptoms will be found italicized. These are the symptoms that have been frequently observed & which distinguish that remedy from others. The more of these emphasized symptoms we have under anyone, the easier the selection.
Part 2: Repertory proper- It is based on;
· The doctrine of complete symptoms.
· The doctrine of concomitants.
· The doctrine of evaluation of remedies.
· 4 Types of gradations are used
The author’s experience had been most satisfied with the use of the twelfth, fifteenth, thirtieth, two hundredths, & often higher potencies of the remedies, administered in water, & repeated every one to six hours according to the urgency of the symptoms & suspended as soon as the desired improvement appeared.
The more segregated the books and topics are the better, hence a particular repertory or regional repertory proves to be the best to refer for the diseases related to that particular system of the body.
