Generals : Appetite : Easy satiety. Aversion to cold drinks. Constipated occassionally Regionals : Palpitation < emotional excitement, anger. Panting < exertion, ascending.

What we are trying to prove is that you will reach the similimum with your own rubrics - if the rubrics taken are correct without assumption

But, we should look for the best combination of rubrics which will lead us to the similimum with less effort - quickly
 First of all consider the characteristic rubrics in this case. ( Those rubrics with moderate number of medicines ) ( One only from a region. )
1. Generals, Weakness, anemia in ( 22 medicines )
2. Generals, Food and drinks, cold drinks aversion (43)
3. Heart and circulation, palpitation, anger.(21)

These 3 when repertorised gives us two medicines which covers all the three.

1. Nat-m 
2. PHOS 

Then list all the remaining rubrics in the case and look for the presence of these two medicines under them.

1. Panting < ascending(4) : PHOS(1)
2. Palpitation, anemia from (16) : PHOS(1)
3. Palpitation < excitement(222) : Nat-m(3),PHOS(3)
4. Endometriosis (Murphy - 45): Nat-m(1), PHOS(1)
5. Anemia,iron deficiency from(131):Nat-m(3),PHOS(3)
6. Easy satiety (140) : Nat-m(2),PHOS(2)

Yes!! The Medicine was PHOSPHORUS
The potency selected was CM...Single dose was given ( One pill in sugar of milk - diluted in 2 ounces of water - one teaspoon taken ) No repetition was made till date.

And the medicine improved the Hb% without direct dietary iron.
