Sepia is the dark liquid which spurts out of the cuttlefish when it is threatened. Cuttlefish are a mollusc that is related to the squid and octopus.
Sepia can bring about painful side effects if consumed. Homoeopaths prescribe Sepia to patients with symptoms that include apathy, moodiness, and weakness. The cuttlefish ink is diluted with large quantities of milk sugar which makes it non-toxic.
Sepia was made as a remedy by recognizing the reactions of healthy individuals to undiluted doses. The changes in the individuals were recorded.
When a Homoeopath sees a patient with a set of similar symptoms to the recorded ones induced by sulphur, they then prescribe it in an extremely dilute form. In a highly diluted dosage, Sepia can eliminate the symptoms that it creates when it is at full strength.
