Putting Remedies into Context 

One of the things that RemedyNotes offers - as well as a place to store your notes - is the ability to set remedies into a context.

It is easy to start to think of a remedy as something that stands on its own, rather than as something that is part of a group or a family of other remedies. 

Some remedies - Nat-mur. for example - are just so familiar to us that we may fail to notice the obvious: which in this example, is that this a remedy which is related to all the other Natrum remedies and all the other Muriaticums. Or to put it into a rather wider context, Nat-mur. is related to all the other Sodium and Chlorum remedies as well as to all the other remedies containing elements from Row 3 of the Periodic Table of Elements.

RemedyNotes comes already set up with well over 4,500 remedy records. And it also has nearly 400 family tree records. A family tree record groups remedies together on the basis of some common factors. Using the example above, Nat-mur. would have a number of family trees:

Source; Inanimate; Material; Periodic Table of Elements; Row 3; Column 01; Sodium

Source; Inanimate; Material; Periodic Table of Elements; Row 3; Column 17; Chlorum

Non-source; Miasm (Sankaran); Malaria


As you can see there is an extra family tree here - the miasm. A miasm is another way of grouping remedies. Other groupings which relate less to the source might include Vega's Boxes or Massimo's Groups

Each family tree is made up of a number of linked categories - for example, Row 3 and Column 17 are both categories. In RemedyNotes you use categories to index your notes. Which means that if you have notes on Row 3, those notes will be immediately accessible from your Nat-mur. record.
