To study homeopathy, it is imperative to have sound knowledge of materia medica and knowledge how to use it. It is also crucial to be able to understand and compare similar remedies. To solve the aforesaid purpose, this repertory has seen the light of the day. It has been specially designed for use in the study of the materia medica. It contains description of every remedy from different points of view.
It is an invaluable compilation of 5 different repertories on:
- Clinical Repertory
-Repertory of Causation
- Repertory of Temperaments
-Dispositions, Constitutions and States
- Repertory of Clinical Relationships
- Repertory of Natural Relationships
The author has described the Repertory as being designed “for use in the study of the materia medica” no less than as an instrument for finding out the indicated remedies. Homoeopathic practice consists in knowledge of materia medica and knowledge how to use it. This demands unlimited patience and application in the study of drug comparisons. This repertory will enable the practitioner to compare any remedy with any similar remedy in five different points, all of great importance in practice.
Every remedy is described from a number of different points of view. The clinical point of view is one of these, and under the heading ‘Clinical’. In compiling these clinical lists author had in view the project of preparing, later on, an Index of these headings to enable the reader to find at a glance all the remedies which have been accredited with the cure or alleviation of any given state. The Clinical Repertory is herewith presented constitutes this Index.
The author has described remedies in the Dictionary under the heading *causation." This tells how remedies are related to conditions due to definite Causes. Alphabetical list of causes will be found with naming of all the drugs which have been observed to be curative in conditions produced by it.
Another index deals with Temperaments. In the Repertory of Temperaments remedies will all be found completely indexed. Type of constitution is very often a determining factor in the choice of a remedy. There are some patients whose constitutions correspond so accurately to a particular medicinal type, that the corresponding remedy will cure almost any indisposition they may happen to have.
The last of the repertories included in this volume is a Repertory of Relationships. This is a twofold, and includes Clinical Relationships and Natural Relationships. The Repertory of Natural Relationships shows at a glance the place in nature of any remedy in question — mineral, vegetable, or animal — and how it stands in regard to its closest congeners. In the Repertory there is an alphabetical list of all the natural orders represented, and under each is given in alphabetical order a list of all the plants of that order included in the materia medica.
When a remedy has done well and has ceased to be indicated, the choice of the remedy to follow will be greatly assisted by knowledge of Clinical Relationships. The author has therefore given a tabulated list of all the remedies in the materia medica with their antidotes and other related remedies.
It will therefore be seen that the Clinical Repertory is a clinical repertory and much more besides. The practitioner who consults it will not be tied down to a mere list of names of diseases : he will be able to test his choice of a remedy from other points of view, and if further information should be required, the Dictionary of Materia Medica, which this Repertory is designed to make more accessible, will supply it.
