The constitution of the patient suggested either Arsenicum or Phosphorus

We have thus come to these two remedies by only considering the general symptom of the patient.

The pain in (>)hot drinks;even wine which suits her generally had to be given up owing to its coldness, a nd as Phosphorus patients crave cold drinks (even ices) in gastric troubles, we are left with Arsenicum

Ars-Alb.30-3 doses a 6-hourly intervals.

Pain (>) (which had been present for years) in a few days, and in a few weeks she was almost well, being much less excitable.

This case she the importance of Generals in their order mental, climatic, desires and aversions in food; all of which must be markedly present to be of any value.

Remarks. Nat-mur. seems to suit the case, not because it is numerically highest alone but because it corresponds to the type of the patient Nat-mur has marked aversion to fats, which this patient desires: but that would not rule out the drug for this reason: that, though the desires and aversion are general symptoms, they and much lower i the scale tan the mental symptoms. /a strong mental symptom like the markedly (<) consolation would rule out many of lesser importance, Pulsatilla again could never suit this case, no matter how great its numerical value, because of he marked (<)from consolation. Repertory work is never mechanical, and is only a guide to the study of Materia Medica.

James Tyler Kent
James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) was an American physician. Prior to his involvement with homeopathy, Kent had practiced conventional medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He discovered and "converted" to homeopathy as a result of his wife's recovery from a serious ailment using homeopathic methods.
In 1881, Kent accepted a position as professor of anatomy at the Homeopathic College of Missouri, an institution with which he remained affiliated until 1888. In 1890, Kent moved to Pennsylvania to take a position as Dean of Professors at the Post-Graduate Homeopathic Medical School of Philadelphia. In 1897 Kent published his magnum opus, Repertory of the Homœopathic Materia Medica. Kent moved to Chicago in 1903, where he taught at Hahnemann Medical College.
