Rethinking the Repertory as a Springboard

Homeopathic knowledge can be divided in three domains: the repertory, the Materia Medica and the patient files.

The repertory can be conceived as a springboard between them. As digitalization increases this role becomes even more relevant. Therefore, while expanding the repertory, thoughtful choices must be made.

This lecture reviews the different options that must be reflected upon in this process. Often, a balance must be pursued between opposite aspects. Proving information against clinical information, old provings or new provings, new rubrics or simply add a synonym, expand polychrests or introduce new remedies.

An analysis of the approaches of Kent versus Bönninghausen leads to the optimal strategy for copying remedies to superrubrics.

Finding a rationale for these decisions is the duty of the repertory editor and may be helpful for anyone repertorizing provings or cases.

Small remedies strategies – cases

Polychrests and small remedies both cure patients. Well reflected prescriptions and lucky hits may cure patients.

When more than a few remedies did not cure, the question arises whether a small remedy should be thought of.

In this workshop, several cases are revisited to discover different strategies that can be applied in such a situation. Understanding these strategies will help to be more successful finding the small remedy, better than a lucky hit.

Each case will be presented with the precise symptoms, the analysis and a relevant follow up.
