homeopathy and eating disordersI was shuffling through Kent's repertory and under MIND I found "refuses to eat" with 18 remedies listed. Refusing to eat is one of the main symptoms of mental anorexia. So, if looking for a remedy for mental anorexia one should probably choose one of those remedies (after considering other symptoms)?
This is a theoretical question. It just came to my mind and I wanted to discuss it :)

An anorexic needs constitutional
This means matching the character of the patient to that of the remedy.
If you had a person who had hot feet in bed , had a bowel motion soon after waking . Who ate little or no breakfast but was ravenous at noon. Who had a quick up and over temper. Dry itchy skin etc etc .
Then that person matches Sulphur and that remedy would help or cure the anorexia ----- BUT NOT OTHERWISE .
Homeopathy is about people not remedies.

I put my question wrong - I wanted to know if "refusing to eat" can be treated as a key symptom - or is it one of the minor ones?
And a question for anyone - have any of you experience with treating eating disorders homeopathicaly?
