Materia Medica and Repertories
A materia medica is a book that describes homeopathic medicines and the various symptoms and syndromes they are known to cure. A repertory is a listing of symptoms and the various medicines that have been found to cause them in overdose and cure them in homeopathic doses. Students and practitioners of homeopathy generally have several materia medica and at least one repertory.
Most of these books are primarily useful for professional homeopaths, though these books are usually not technical and can be understood by laypeople and non-homeopaths. By adding a materia medica and a repertory to your library, you can be more precise in the selection of an individualized remedy.
