What is a homeopathic Unitary remedy ?
Unitary, a single substance remedy
Homeopathy is a holistic medicine using thousands of substances that are listed in a directory to facilitate their use.
Unitary or single homeopathic remedies are made from a single substance. Unicist homeopaths look for the remedy that corresponds to the patient as a whole, the so-called simillimum. Finding it requires knowledge of the homeopathic principles and the consultation of resource books called repertories. After ranking the patient’s symptoms, the homeopath refers to different repertories until he finds the trail that will lead him to the most appropriate remedy. This method, which is considered the pinnacle of homeopathy, is what we call classical or unicist homeopathy and is the legacy of the world’s greatest homeopaths.
