"certain remedies such as Sepia, Pulsatilla nigricans, Platina, Cimicifuga, Lilium tigrinum, Sabina and Secale appear to have a focus on female related symptoms. We see statements declaring 'this is a women's remedy...." (The fairer sex)
It's a shame but it's true. The other day I heard a practitioner call Sepia the "lesbian remedy". Not only do I find that insulting to homosexual women (in this day and age, are we really going to insinuate that homosexuality is a pathological process?), but it's also completely inaccurate. The first prover of Sepia was male!
For people new to homeopathic preparations: a homeopathic remedy is made by taking a substance and diluting it in water many hundreds or thousands of times. Before each dilution, the substance is vigorously shaken (succussed), which is thought to strengthen the power of the medicine. Unfortunately we don't understand much about how/why this process works, so research like this is of vital importance.
