Conflicting symptoms within the same remedy

I'm a newbie enjoying learning about homeopathy and I've noticed something interesting so I really wanted to open a thread about it. I've noticed that the same remedy will often have opposing symptoms. I've notices this in meds which have a bipolar quality, but it probably happens on a greater scale than that.

Per example, I've just read this:
"Nat-Mur people always feel worse by the sea, but sometimes better at the seaside will indicate it."

Love and hate are just two sides of the same coin... but what is important is that this person REACTS to the sea, so there is a connection to it. In most repertoires you will find only "symptoms worse seaside".

Sounds like this has a potential to cause lots of mistakes and overlooks in prescribing, if we dismiss a remedy because some key symptoms don't seem to fit. Opinions?[message edited by cosmicweaver on Sun, 19 Jun 2016 01:39:50 UTC]

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Very rarely you will strike the right remedy in first instance. Homeopathic treatment is a continuous and tedious process. Only peculiar symptoms should be considered while deciding the remedy otherwise the case becomes a huge mass of disconnected symptoms.

discounting clinical additions to repertory..

from provings -- it wa snoticed a secondary reaction to the 1st response to medicine use for proving...rule during provings is to record all that occurs AFTER DOSE..AND ALL THINGS ARE TO BE CONSIDERED DUE TO THE medicine.....prior to proving a thorough recording/investigation of al existing symptomology of the prover....

these secondary responses were opposite the primary action....valid info --but prescriber need know his material medica..and thru much ..very much observations of sick and study...there is no conflicting symptoms....

mr kadwa --I scorrect that peculiar /characteristic symptoms are prime concern..yet this is usually gotten thru long/deep exchange from patient to prescriber...and a pic begins to form...
