Section I List of mother tincture

This section encloses alphabetically arranged 347 mother tinctures and the perpetuation of 154 rare remedies.

Each mother tincture follows a general arrangement OF

  • Clinical

Section III Pearls of wisdom from homeopathic ocean

This section is the focal point of this book. This section answers some unanswered questions of students.

  • Understanding the domain of mother tincture

This section author gives a thrust to the readers to cultivate the use of “LIFE SAVING” mother tinctures

  • Stalwarts quotes on mother tinctures

This section anachronisms where our stalwarts have given their opinion on mother tinctures.

I would like to quote from the book “Dr.M.L Tyler says he used Viburnum in many cases of neuralgia and spasmodic dysmenorrhoea and has yet to meet a single case where it failed to cure it.”

  • Instant distress redeemers in mother tinctures

This section has remedies quoted by Homoeopaths who have found immense results by using this mother tincture.

The author says he would be delighted if the readers understand I would like to quote what “He says don’t divide mother tincture and dilution in a different world but to select pearls of different design and color from this realm.

Example: SolidagoIt is named as catheter in Homoeopathy

  • Clinical hints of mother tincture

This section serves as a navigational aid for the clinicians to give instant relief for the patients in distress like this.

Alphabetically arrangement of disease is given with the combination of the most indicated mother tincture with the general management.

Example:Toothache-A drop of Aconite Q on a cotton bud, put in the cavity of teeth will give quick relief.

  • Minute and delicate comparisons

With a very vast Materia Medica this section is a boon as it gives remedies with similar remedies that have similar & Contrast indications. This section acts as a practical and easy-to-use guide to higher-order thinking.

Natrum Mur has white discharge and Natrum Sulp has yellow discharge

  • Rare secrets of sure result in disappointing cases

As a reviewer, this section is the keeps you gripping to the book and as a clinician, this is most beneficial in cases where we haven’t got good results.

Bacillinum does not act till Thuja has been given and then it acts beautifully

  • Danger zones not clarified in mother tincture

The all ways say “You have to take the good with the bad “this section has given danger zones of some mother tinctures stated by a different author.

Example:Crataegus in Boericke’s Materia Medica states that it is a heart tonic, but doesn’t have a mention that it has to be taken empty stomach.


Crisp, hitting the target – kind of an explanation of Homoeopathic mother tinctures following through 10 validated source books of Homoeopathic Material Medica, of rare remedies adding a new array to prescription.


Mother tincture in Materia Medica is in the stage of clinical verification and research.

This book is a boon to the young homeopathic soldier to reconnoiter the mother tinctures.
