Ground remedies . We are first of all taking up the study of some remedies that we consider particularly as remedies of the ground of sciatica but, if they cover well the cause, may also be used as symptomatic remedies. When they are used as ground remedies, they are to be prescribed in high dilutions (200, M). The most important are Sulphur and Thuja.

Sulphur   (30, 200, M)-
-- Psora. Left sided. Graphites (psora, chilliness), Natrum muriaticum (tuberculinics, Agg. on sea side) and Silicea (tuberculinics, extreme sensitiveness to cold) and we will add two nosodes: Medorrhinum and Luesinum.

Symptomatic remedies . In sciatica if one wants to be successful one must look for "Simile" or "Similimum". The result will be as favorable as the medicines are individualized. Two remedies may be repeated alternately, at one interval of two to three hours, when more than one remedies are chosen. In chronic cases, 6 or 30 once or twice. When there is the possibility of finding a single remedy it is then the triumph of unicism and in that case the medicine may be used according to the Kentian fashion, in high dilution and waiting for the results.
