Management of Abnormal Cravings

Continued use of some drugs and narcotics shorten the effect of homeopathic remedy….


In acute disease it is advisable to yield to the cravings of the patient, but in chronic disease they must not be indulged.

It is to be noted that when a patient has by long continued use become habituated to drugs, such as morphia, tobacco, etc., the homoeopathic remedy will, at times, act in spite of the continued use of the drug; but, of course, the action is short lasting and imperfect.

Robert Gibson-Miller
He was born in 1862, and was educated at Blair Lodge and the University of Glasgow, where he graduated in medicine in 1884. Early in his career he was attracted to the study of Homoeopathy, and with the object of testing the claims made for this system of medicine he undertook a visit to America. As a result of his investigations there Dr. Miller was convinced of the soundness of the homoeopathic theory. Dr. Miller did not write much, but we owe him also his Synopsis of Homoeopathic Philosophy and his small book, always at hand for reference, on Relation ship of Remedies.
