HOMOEOPATHIC MATERIA MEDICA OF SARCODES
- Dr. Chaturbhuja Nayak, Smita Brahmachari, Syed Afsar Ali
The study of 'sarcodes is one of the most grey area of homeopathic materia medica, which has not yet been thoroughly explored. Most of the sarcodes are not proved as per standard guidelines of Dr Hahnemann nor majority of them been clinically verified. On scrutiny of the available literature on sarcodes, a lot of differences and contradictions are witnessed which lead to confusion in the minds of the readers, particularly in respect to their sources, preparation, clinical applicability, effective potencies and doses etc., There is no clarity whether sarcodes should be earmarked as a separate class of 'animal kingdom'. Moreover the signs and symptoms of each sarcode are not documented uniformly in different homoeopathic Materia Medicas, which naturally confounds the readers.
