Dr. MAS Research Paper - Duration of Action

After long day efforts, we able to get replies from homeopaths.

This was received from Dr. MAS. We are thankful to him.

Hello Other Members, Ref. Your mail. Sorry, I can’t post in any other forum, So I offer the following comments here:

1. Who first compiled this list? (Boerick or any other homeopath?)

Duration of action of remedies is falsehood tip in homeopathy like any other homeopathic principle. But it has now become a prime importance if you use it the correct way. The vital role of duration of action of remedies cannot be ruled out. But the question is when, where and how it can be used? This is all confusing. Which remedy to follow after which remedy…..? Question like that is all bamboozling.

I also use duration of action of remedies but at the same time I also instruct my students don’t be confused with it, always take fresh case and prescribe what ever the remedy comes. Very simple rule.

Rehman Encyclopedia of relationship of remedies is the definite source for knowing duration of action of remedies. Dr. Rehman can be approached through email ***** for genuine enquiries only.

The earlier name was “drug affinities”, Bogger Boenninghausen in 1846 (approx) published data in concise form.

Then it got famed from Boerick materia medica but who was the first? I don't know. After publication in Boerick, every body blindly started quoting that table. This is all cheating. Nobody ever bothered to check the exact listening. The most interesting point is, every body blindly verified that duration of each remedy is correct but in my case it was all gone wrong.

2. When this list was first compiled? (Exact Date if available)

Read above.

3. Was the list compiled in one day or duration of action of remedies were added one by one at different interval of time?

One doctor first compiled it but that doctor collected data from different doctors, other sources and books having cured stories and observations. My common sense says, it was added with different interval of time but in summarized form it was compiled later on.

4. How many compilers were involved in compiling that list or only one writer took pain in compiling the whole list?

Only one doctor took pain in compiling the table but many doctors were involved involuntarily. These doctors noted their observations for different remedies, which were then collected by one doctor.

5. The duration of action of remedy of Rhus Tox was added just after the completion of Rhus Tox proving or it was added after long trial of clinical practice and experience.

When Rhus Tox proving was done, it was noted that even after the stoppage of use of Rhus Tox (in crude form), the proving symptoms constantly appeared for seven days in healthy individual. Hence it was noted that Rhus tox has exact seven days of duration of action. Later on this was practically observed by different homeopaths during the practical application / administration of first dose of Rhus tox in the patient.

For example, say when Rhus Tox 200 was given, the patient responded very well and remained calm for few days until he reported that he is again feeling discomfort, at that stage, homeopath thought that action of the first dose of Rhus tox is completed but patient is not reported total cure hence one more dose after seven days was administrated.

This type of observation in the coming days was very fruitful for homeopaths and helped them a lot in repeating the dose. One day, a patient came to my clinic, she was arthritis patient, after repertorization, I decided to give her a dose of Rhus Tox 1M for her knee complaint. I asked her to report to me after seven days. She came after nine days and said "Doctor sahib, I was feeling better but now pain has started again, give me some more good quality medicine, I want to recover as early as possible because I have to go to Saudia Arabia for performing UMRA.” To my observation, the remedy was working and the rule is, if remedy is working, then don't disturb the action of remedy by administrating over dose. I knew that Rhus tox was in her body and she does not need further treatment for the next follow up. Placebo was given and it was again instructed to report after four days, the patient came and said, “I have been recovered about 90 % but worried about relapse of complaint” , a dose of cm was given and then the patient never returned.
This observation shows that, Rhus tox duration of action is ten to fifteen days depending upon the selection of potency strength.

This observation shows that duration of action of remedies saved your case other wise you would have been spoiled the case if you don't know the duration of action of remedy.

According to Dr. Gibson-Miller, the columns of duration of action of remedies are not correct. To him; the Rhus Tox action is three to four months. So homeopathy is full of fraud like that, if you have money, you can become high standard homeopaths, if you could write some book you can call yourself scholar of homeopathy without knowing that what is the difference between remedy, medicine and drug? Believe me, everybody will quote you without actually knowing that what is right and what is wrong because homeopaths do not believe in practical observations. They supposed to follow what is written, they do not bother what they are observing. They always made mind before doing something and write observations according to their pre-planned thoughts.

This is the complete list of duration of action of remedies, which Gibbon compiled and appeared in Boerick. This is also supposed to claim the first compilation.

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. Dull homeopathy. L

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.”

6. Who was the first homeopath that added the duration of action of remedy of Rhus tox (7 days) in remedy list? Was that the clinical homeopath who after practical experience finalized the duration of action of remedy of rhus tox or was that the Prover who first proved rhus tox as homeopathic remedy?

It was first the prover who proved Rhus Tox and then the follower homeopaths who verified the data from their clinical observations.

This was received from Dr. abdul Rehman on merc.

My dear Dr. Mas

Thank you very much for your query. I am enclosing herewith complete relationships of Mercurius. Some additions have been made very recently but I could not go through them, so you may find some typing/spelling mistakes for which I beg excuse in advance.

It seems that when Merc fails when indicated, Merc-v acts185.

Mercury given in form of Mercurius Sol. has toxic effects on the
intestinal and oral flora up to 6X125.

Should not be used lower than 12X (6C50) for danger of producing abscess
in tonsils125; is toxic lower than 6X125.

Don't give many doses of Merc in psoric cases, look for a deeper

In primary and secondary syphilis, Merc. is sovereign and reliable
remedy, it must consequently, be continued weeks and months, during the
period of pause one gives purposefully the indicated intercurrent
remedy: Kali-i, Nit-ac. both in low potencies or Syph. and Sulph. in
high potencies44.

Hesitate about giving Merc. in dysentery unless sure it is indicated39.

Sulph. intensifies its action8,16.

Merc. is not followed well by Sil; Sil. does not do useful work when
Merc. is still acting, or has been acting. Sil. follows well after Hep.
and Hep. follows well after Merc. and thus Hep. becomes an intercurrent
in that series of medicines30,56.

The relationship between Merc. and inflammation should be studied very
carefully. It is recommended in the later stages of inflammation when
inflammation merges into suppuration, the more has pus formed, the more
it is indicated ... we think of it when inflammation stage is just about
over and suppuration about to set in, it works both ways, it prevents
suppuration when suppuration has not taken place and hence is a remedy
to be used in doubtful cases of suppuration134.

As Sulph is to psora, so is Merc to syphilis and Thuj to sycosis30.

Sal, Mercurius and Sulph. correspond to the three basic constitutions of

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.

We really miss you. I don't know, whether the administrator has any means of retreiving your password or not.

I have a suggestion.Why don't you try to register again, with a slight change?

For examle, you can register as DRMAS, by simply removing the dot, in between.I think it should be possible.

Pl.try for the sake of all of us.

Now, regarding duration of action of remedies, I feel, it varies from patient to patient, depends on the potency, and the nature and severety of the disease.There is no way, you can quantify it .

Your experience should guide you when to repeat.

Do you mean, duration of action recorded at proving time is different from what it was observed on clinical trial?

What is the email address of A rehman, I want to buy book from him.
