Being a university approved teacher of repertory from 1994 till today, I have witnessed a huge transformation in the subject of repertory, in India. Way back in 1994, when I started teaching the subject, there were no textbooks as such. There were reference books for few to refer to, and the articles in I. C. R Symposium Volumes. There were very few in print and they were difficult to procure. I had to study each repertory with some help from the reference books if available. Fortunately, my teachers guided me a lot whenever I had queries, including how to approach each repertory. We learned and studied repertory as a subject (with various repertories ). Repertory as a subject is taught in the final year of graduation when all the pre clinical and para clinical subjects have been covered by then. So, repertory is an “all” inclusive subject , from case taking -> diagnosing -> analysis of symptoms -> totality formation -> selection of a repertory ( book) ->, forming the “ reportorial totality ” -> conversion of symptom to rubric -> selection of rubrics -> P.D.F ** -> miasmatic cleavage/analysis -> remedy differentiation -> selection read more [...]
MODERN CLASSICAL-PRACTICAL PRESCRIBING: METHODOLOGY
NON-SUPPRESSED CASES: CASES WITH CLARITY OF SYMPTOMS:
MTEK is an useful memory aid to arriving at a correct prescription.
M = Miasmatic Totality
T = Totality of Symptoms
E = Essence (should include gestures, postures, behaviours etc)
K = Keynotes (which should encompass PQRS symptoms, refer §153 and §209 of Hahnemann’s Organon)
When the above criteria are considered and the steps below followed, a correct prescription can be made.
Step-I: Make the miasmatic diagnosis of the case, i.e. ascertain the surface miasm.
Step-II: Assess the Totality of Symptoms + Essence + Keynotes and PQRS (if any) of the case and formulate the indicated remedy.
Step-III: Ensure that the indicated remedy covers the surface miasm, as diagnosed in Step I.
Step-IV: Administer the remedy, which encompasses the miasm as well as the Totality of Symptoms.
Make the miasmatic diagnosis of the case, i.e. ascertain the surface miasm. This can be done by:
(a) Head to foot assessment of symptoms (please refer to Miasmatic Prescribing by Subrata K. Banerjea)
(b) Through clinical manifestation of disease, read more [...]

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a functional disorder that affects around 10-20% of the population1, with the condition affecting women three times more than men2. For practitioners of ingestive medicine, it’s relatively common to be consulted by people with this complaint. Up until fairly recently, IBS was a diagnosis of exclusion, i.e., those presenting to a GP or specialist with abdominal pain and an alteration of bowel habits, in the absence of an identifiable organic pathology, were usually told that they had IBS. Since then, IBS has become a recognised clinical entity, with the following diagnostic criteria:
Abdominal distension (bloating).
Diffuse lower abdominal pain, noticed particularly in the lower left quadrant. Pain is usually reported as a constant dull ache with occasional episodes of acute sharp pain. Eating may precipitate this pain and it’s often relieved by defecation. For diagnostic purposes, the pain described here should have been present for at least 3 days per month during the previous 3 months.
Altered bowel habits, consisting of constipation, diarrhoea, or an alternation between the two, including defecation urgency, particularly after a read more [...]
As the sceptics have made a website calling it 10.23 http://www.1023.org.uk/ in order to degrade homeopathy, George Vithoulkas is suggesting to them the following proposal!
I challenge the Sceptics!
Several sceptics in 10:23 anti homeopathy campaign (swallowed in public each one a full bottle of different homeopathic remedies just to show that there was nothing in them. I propose to swallow the same content of about 60 tablets but in a different way:
Swallow one tablet every day. I propose the remedy to be Alumina 200C (a dilution far beyond the Avogadro number) and I promise them that in the end of 60 days a considerable number of them (up to 10% or more) will be suffering with slight to severe constipation. In homeopathy one bottle or one tablet is considered as one dose only. Most probably they knew this?
The first condition for the participants of this experiment will be to have a good general state of health and a normal stool once a day.
The second to be brave enough to continue with the experiment till the end of 60 days and not stop with the first signs of constipation.
The third, to be honest enough to report the effect.
I promise read more [...]
