Autumn season rubrics
Autumn season is from august to October

Today we will discuss autumn season rubrics and see their efficacy in daily practice. Taking season as a rubric will increased our range to explore the vitality, 1st of all many physician asked me why to consider season as a rubrics my answer is if its of no use then why it is given in repertory and materia medica and certain people tend to get sick in a particular season so its related to their diatheses which indirectly by default relates it to the constitution of the patient. And also taking season as rubric means we have a symptom which is partly general and partly particular of mental of pathological.

We all know and read about autumnal dysentery of the colchicum. Now this symptom is very popular amongst homoeopaths and students. But there are other symptoms also. We should consider them also. If you believe in colchicum’s autumnal dysentery then you should also believe in this article I am stating now.

A case of a child whose only complaint was every year he catches cough in the month of august and February now this is patients language. we have to think that feb is the period of spring and august is the period of autumn. Irritability was marked in the child and desire of carried although no amelioration but desire for carried was marked. Rattling cough. so cina was given after that didn’t repeat this situation of getting cough the I rubric used

A patient came for a recurrent teeth problem. Now see the patient’s language. What he says doctor every time the weather changes my teeth starts troubling me sensitivity, toothache. I asked which change of weather, the patient said, after the rainy season when winter is about to come. And when winter gone summer is about come. See the language of the patient. In bbcr repertory we have generalize the symptom so I used the symptom. Now what we need to understand is that before winter is autumn season and after winter its time for spring.

the case was cured with magnetis polus articus.


Now the main theme of this repertory is clinical, causation and temperaments (diathesis, constitution, miasm). So when we don’t find any peculiar symptoms of key characteristics we go for this repertory of where pathological symptom is marked and causation is clear cut.

In today’s time when we don’t have much time for every patient we need to work out fast I personally recommend three repertories for 21 century homoeopaths. Because these are the most updated ones and they add rubrics from all the sources available now and continuously updating.

Synthesis repertory by dr Frederik Schroyens

Complete repertory by dr Roger Van Zandvort

Murphy repertory by dr Robin Murphy

But we should not neglect and forget the contributions of the old ones to our pathy because old ones are the basis of these modern repertories. It’s the hard work of our old stalwarts the homoeopathy is thriving today.
Hope this information may be fruitful in your daily practice so in this season please see that if your patient says some of these symptoms don’t neglect them.

Today’s suggestion about the book which will help you in your practice is synthesis repertory by Dr Frederik Schroyens.
