Materia Medica (English: medical material/substance) is a Latin medical term used for the body of collected knowledge about the therapeutic properties of any substance used for healing (i.e., medicines). Homoeopathic Materia Medica are encyclopedia of materials which may be used to prepare homoeopathic medicines. They list the materials along with details of the provings which establish the symptoms and conditions for which they are claimed to be suitable. They thus constitute a homoeopathic prescribing reference guide and are often used along with the Homoeopathic repertory.
Although there are various homoeopathic Materia Medica, written by different authors and covering different specialities, the term Homoeopathic Materia Medica is often used to refer the total sum of homoeopathic preparations and prescribing options. Hahnemann developed the first Homoeopathic Materia Medica by a system of homeopathic provings, where a substance was ingested by the "prover" and the symptoms that the "prover" developed were recorded in great detail. Materia Medica may also include accidental poisoning and some information from clinical treatment.
The most authoritative book on homeopathy ever published. The book contains well known verified characteristic symptoms of all our medicines besides other less important symptoms aiding the selection of the curative remedy. In its present compact form it contains the maximum number of reliable Materia Medica facts in the minimum space. This book is often the first real materia medica to be studied by anybody who wants to study homeopathy.

The work of a homeopathic student while studying and applying materia medica is one to constantly compare and differentiate. He must compare the pathogenesis of a remedy with the recorded anamnesis of the patient; he must differentiate the apparently similar symptoms of two or more medicinal agents in order to select the simillimum. To enable the student or practitioner to do this correctly the student must have proper knowledge of the individuality of the remedy; something that is peculiar, uncommon, or sufficiently characteristic in the polychrest remedy that may be used as a pivotal point of comparison. This pivotal point may be a ‘keynote,’ a ‘characteristic,’ or the ‘red strand of the rope.’ This excellent work by Dr H.C. Allen helps the reader to grasp the PQRS symptoms in no time.Learn More
