Rare Remedies

In homeopathic practice, we meet with situations where prescribing becomes difficult owing to insufficient data for prescribing a polychrest remedy. Rare remedies often play a useful role in such cases and do an excellent job. They are called rare as they are not known/prescribed by a majority of physician. Yet the indications for their use are given in various materia medica. Successful use of rare remedies should be shared freely with the profession for their wider use and benefit. I am venturing to share my experiences of use of some of the rare remedies.
