Is is always all wrong for calc carb to be prescribed for a chronic condition (but not as a constitutional remedy) for someone that does not have a large,  sweaty head?  How about for someone with a small head or very small head in proportion to their body,  and without a sweaty head, when if everything else points strongly to calc carb? 

(I am trying to understand homeopathy better.  One homeopath told me that I shouldn’t necessarily go with the constitutional aspects of a remedy [calc”s large sweaty head is that,  if I understand it correctly],  but then another homeopath said that never should one give calc carb to someone who didn’t have a large head now or as a child. )

You might consider taking a homeopathy course, because I see you getting confused by the all the information and not understanding the basis for it. Right now you should be studying materia medica and repertory. You’re years away from being able to prescribe for chronic illness or manage a case. Get the basics down first.  People needing Calc can have very different appearances.

Advice taken, and agreed upon.   I realize it takes many years of study,  experience,  and a special ability to be a homeopath.  I am sick of seeing doctors and veterinarians out there who call themselves homeopaths but have done nothing more than read one book and then start prescribing for patients.  I am also sick of seeing all the combination remedies being prescribed in modern practice.  I am a believer in old-school classical homeopathy.   (I have a veterinarian who wants to give combination remedies to my pets,  and who does it in spite of my disapproval.  After surgery,  my cat received a combination remedy from her instead of a simple dose of arnica, even though I specified “single remedy use,  no combination remedies” to her.  I think more people need to become students of old-school classical homeopathy to keep this important practice going.

My homeopath has retired,  so I need to find a new one for both myself and for my pets.  Sadly for me at this time,  there are veterinarian homeopaths out there who charge many hundreds of dollars an hour (an average of $1500-$2000 per case per pet),  which is cost-prohibitive for many people,  but I do appreciate how much time and effort they invest and understand that they should be paid for that.  (My homeopath charged me about $500 a case, for a person!)  I would rather a regular homeopath and not necessarily a veterinarian prescribe for my pets.) 

Your last sentence answered my question,  though,  for now.  Thank you so much.   Your answer reflects how I understand homeopathy,  from listening to my own past homeopathic doctor.  A homeopath who wrote a book I just read has confused me by contradicting this while writing in a general sense and not in any specific context. 

I greatly desire to take a four-year program in homeopathy, in time.  In the meantime, I have been a homeopathic patient,  and I have already purchased an introductory course that I have been studying on my own.  I also spend a lot of time studying materia medica and repertory.  (I have no intention of treating a person with a chronic case,  so don’t worry.  I understand that my knowledge is highly inadequate.)
