Homeopathy and Health Forum
Homeopath doesn't tell the name of remedies!My homeopath labels my remedies as 'loose cough' 'dry cough', 'fever'', 'breathing problems', and other symptoms.
I'm supposed to take the remedies according to my symptoms.
Sometimes I would prefer to know the names so that i could read on it and decide if it really is suitable for my current symptoms.
But She seems to not want to tell me the names of the remedies.
Why is that so?
Is this some kind of homeopathic approach?

This thread continues beneath the following ad.
Some homeopaths think the patient is going to look up materia medica of....fill name of med.
Then they think that patient reports will be not totally true because
They read about remedy symptoms and their
Description of reactions will not be "pure".
Also , since many do not understand homeopathy well,
And think a remedy is"them" like they are a
Patients get upset and will not take .. say lachesis(snake)
Or arsenicum(poison) as it upsets their self image. People will
Argue and say things like I am "gold&amp;amp;quot;(aurum)
Or I am a flower remedy, etc.
No one is a remedy- the remedy is medicine to boost the life force
Because it is similar to the disease symptoms.
The body will not allow the diluted remedy because the body will not accept two similar things. The body boosts life force to get rid of remedy and matching imbalance at same time.
I believe one should KNOW what you are putting into your body-
And if you want a second opinion you need to know !
I advise people to stay away from those who will not tell you- find someone who will.
As far as being suitable after you read up?
Even homeopaths go to other homeopaths as it is almost impossible to see yourself and symptoms in a neutral way. There are Over 5000 remedies- the reason they choose a remedy could have to do
With a never well since.... issue or you could have
A strange, rare symptom that is ONLY in one remedy and when that happens it should be given. You do not know how to
Decide what is important and what is not.
Better to get a second opinion than self prescribe for Chronic issues.

What simone717 says is one important reason. Other reasons are: to stop reckless self prescription(reckless self prescription can lead to medicine induced symptoms and suppression and or making the case complex and untreatable) and last is business interest.
In homeopathy, the most widely and actively used medicines for 99% of complaints would only number around three dozen and the knowledge about these names would affect the business interest of some homeopaths. This habit **Not Revealing med. name** is prevalent in south asian countries. But this habit is there in other places also. This habit also exists in other alternative therapies.
But it's important for a sane and a reasonable patient to understand what medicine he/she is taking for multiple reasons. So yes if h'path can not reveal the medicine, then switch to another one who is transparent about this.
