Recent Improvements to the Remedy Finder
You may have noticed a few changes to the remedy finder, and
elsewhere on the site recently, here is a quick guide to the
The search has been improved in the way it orders results.
The database has reverted to the order of the original Kent's;
that is, from the top of the body downwards, rather than the
alphabetical order of previous versions. In addition, some of
the medical terminology has been added back in. This is in response

Colour Coded Remedy Finder
The remedy finder now has colour coded backgrounds to give
you an idea of how many options are behind each tick box. The
reasons for this are: firstly, to highlight options which are
the most common (i.e. have the most detail behind them), and
secondly, to make it clearer that certain options, even deep
down, can lead to a lot more options. The colour coding is on
a continuous scale and is as follows:
|Very Many Options
|Medium number of options
|No further options
The colour coding only applies to the next immediate level,
not all the options below each of the options on the next level,
where there are further options.
Search relevancy indicator bars

more than once in that result.
||A solid green bar indicates a result where all words
were matched in this result, but (in most cases) without
inflating results by duplication of words.
||A shorter green bar indicates only a partial match to
the search string. The shorter the bar, the less relevant
