A remedy made from a single specific substance and can be animal vegatable or mineral eg: Arnica, Silicea, Lac Humanis

Organo Remedies:

Also known as Organotherapy is an  emerging branch of Homeopathy that utilises the use of organ remedies, made from the health tissues of animals, to treat the patient, working on the basic principles of Homeopathy, i.e. like cures like.


In Organotherapy, the understanding is that every living organ is capable of recognizing its own signature and responding. The theory has been demonstrated experimentally as well and is a system used by many Homeopathic Doctors around the world, especially in Australia.


This is what is called tissue memory, and it stimulates the exact reproduction of the cells of the tissue in a diseased state.




A nosode (from nosos, the Greek word meaning disease) is a homeopathic
preparation made from matter from a sick animal or person. Substances such as respiratory discharges or diseased tissues are used. It sounds repulsive, but
the preparation, using alcohol, as well as the repeated dilution and succussion,
essentially renders the substances harmless, while producing a powerful remedy.
The use of nosodes in a prophylactic manner, for preventing disease, has been used in veterinary and human homeopathy for many, many years. It is supported by various holistic practioners both for humans and veterinarians. The use of nosodes for prophylaxis has proven to be both effective and safe with no known side effects




In Greek the term ‘Sarcode’ means fleshy. Sarcodes imply protoplasm of animals as distinguished from vegetable protoplasm. In homeopathy some of the Sarcodes are proved medicines. They are obtained from healthy endocrine or ductless glands or normal secretions of living human organs & lower animals. The secretions are mostly hormones.

eg: Adrenaline, eholestinium, feltari, insulin, pancreatium, Pepsinum.pitutory,Thyroidinum, Vulpis-fel etc.
