How do i use food Generalities in repertory?

I'm confused as to the food section in Generalities. I understand if there is a choice for agg. or amel. but I'm not clear on the aversion or desire option. Does desire mean the patient likes the food or if the patient wants or needs the food during an ailment. Can someone please clarify for me? Thanks

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
In a general sense it means the person has a like or dislike of certain foods.

After the homeopath has gone over your history, chosen your
Most important symptoms and turned them into rubrics, there
Will be a list of matches to decide which one is best at the time.

At that point , you could read more about the remedies and see what
Specific things show up about food - for instance,
Cal Carb desires sweets when having a headache, lycopodium likes sweets
In general but often has bloat and rumbling after eating them. Argentum nit
Craves sweets often feeling out of control about eating them.

The generals are part of the case, used to help pinpoint the remedy if needed.

Thank you. That is very helpful information. I use an app on my phone. When I select the foods in Generalities I always select what I like or dislike in general terms. I just want to make sure the best remedy is selected.
