Boerick says, duration of action of remedies of Ars Alb is above 60-90 days, see above, but B-hausen said, it is upto 36 days and to my observation, in 30C it only remain in action four days and rarely for fifteen days in high potency in acutes.

The materia medica pura says, “The duration of the action of large doses of rhus extends over six weeks, that of small doses is less proportionally to the smallness of the dose. On account of this long duration of action the preliminary homoeopathic aggravation of symptoms is also of longer duration than with most other vegetable drugs; so that in the employment of even the smallest doses we often do not observe the amelioration until after the lapse of twenty-four hours after taking the medicine. Hence, as with every other medicine, so especially in the selection of this one, the homoeopathic rule must be strictly followed. The injurious effects of an erroneous selection are often removable by bryonia, sometimes by sulphur, at other times by camphor or raw coffee, according to the untoward symptoms produced.”

Thank you Dr Dutta,
Duration of action is only a clinical observation.It all depends on the severity of the disease.

There are remedies that are known to be of short duration (which some call acute remedies), and others are of longer duration (which some call chronic). But each person will also respond very differently. I mean there are cases where a person may develop proving symptoms that last for very very long after an incorrect remedy was repeated too frequently and in too high a potency.

Yes, Mercedes

The duration of action is not a pre determined thing. It depends on the sensitivity of the patient to that particular medicine, the gravity and nature of the disease , to name just two parameters.

There are many more to be considered.

Many homeopaths are good at selecting the medicine based on the materia medica knowledge, but they fail to cure.They bungle up the case in following up.Either they don't understand the other important aspect, the philosophy of homeopathy, or find it too bothersome to master.

Those few homeopaths who have the desire to study all the three branches of homeopathy, Materia medica, Philosophy and the repertory with due deligence are likely to be the most succesful.

Hi Pat

Strangely this list though available in printed books (Annexture to Beoricke and Kent's repertories) , is not available on the net so far.

Dr.Firuzi Mehta took the trouble of scanning it and putting it on her website. I may add that I gave that suggestion.


As far as I know this is the only place where it is available on the net so far.
