The term ‘Classic Materia Medica’ refers to the work done from 1790 – 1931, starting with Hahnemann and ending with Boericke and Boger.After that, there was a gaping silence for about 50 years during which there was almost no new information.

Concordant Reference is a one-volume compilation of the classic texts of –

  • T.F. Allen – Handbook of Materia Medica and Homeopathic Therapeutics and [partially] Encyclopedia of Pure Materia Medica -10 volumes (1874 – 79)
  • T.F. Allen – A Primer of Materia Medica
  • Boericke – Pocket Manual of Homeopathic Materia Medica (1927)
  • Boger – Synoptic Key of the Materia Medica (1931)
  • Clarke – Dictionary of Homeopathic Materia Medica – 3 volumes (1900)
  • Cowperthwaite – Textbook of Materia Medica and Therapeutics (1891)
  • Hering – Guiding Symptoms – 10 volumes (1877 – 89)
  • Kent – Repertory (1877)
  • A. Lippe – Textbook of Materia Medica (1865)
  • Pulford – Homeopathic Materia Medica of Graphic Drug Pictures (approx. 1930)

Symptoms from T.F. Allen’s Handbook and his 10-volume Encyclopedia have been added to Concordant Reference!

  • Sections include – Generals, Mind, Dreams, Body areas, Modalities, Relations, Causations.
    • From the standard repertory body sections, the sections of ‘Food and drink’, ‘Heart’, ‘Limbs general’, ‘Limbs upper’, ‘Limbs lower’ are split out for easier reference.
    • There are three possible divisions in each section – Sensation, Pain, Objective.
    • Symptoms come from three sources – proving, intoxication and clinical.
    • Whereas formerly the emphasis was on symptoms from clinical observations, now by the addition of more proving symptoms, a better balance has been achieved.
    • Previously, there were instances in which two remedies were lumped together because they were thought to be the same. For the first time in any materia medica, the Concordant Reference differentiates the two, assigning the correct symptoms to each one, allowing for more accurate prescribing. Examples of such pairs include –
  • Rhus tox and Rhus radicans
  • Bryonia alba and Bryonic dioica
  • Aloe socotrina and Aloe ferox
