If you have noticed my blog spot address is Allium cepa. Some of you may wonder what is Allium Cepa. It is a scientific name for red onion, a homeopathic remedy to treat common cold. As homeopathy works based on the Law of Similars which means 'similar to the suffering', remedies to be prescribed must be capable of producing similar symptoms in a healthy person. For example, when peeling onions, many people become tearful and develop a watery nasal discharge with burning and smarting pains. A common cold can also produce the same symptom such as watery eyes and nose, sneezing and with watery discharge which burns the nose and upper lip. This means that onions can cause symptoms in healthy people that closely resemble the conditions of a common cold. So, by applying the Law of Similar, Allium Cepa can be prescribed to the patient having similar conditions.
