The Times of the Remedies is based upon Dr. Boger's own practical observation and long clinical experience. He emphasized that the particular time when a medicine manifests its full therapeutic action is often of decisive importance. It is through his untiring energies that a new angle of prescribing in the medicines has been brought about. While compiling this repertory Dr. Boger follows Boenninghausen's schema of reportorial presentation.
It is rather a new method of application of remedies developed from an extensive research work, carried on by this indefatigable worker in the cause of advancement of the homoeopathic science and it is due to his tireless energy and hard work that a new angle of vision in prescribing medicines has been brought about.
This repertory mentions about aggravation and amelioration of complaints in the time frame, i.e. in accordance to hours, days, weeks, months, year and seasons. The portion devoted to "aggravations" and "ameliorations" is a translation from an article which — originally appeared in The Zeitschrift des Berliner Vereines Homeepatischer Aerzte (Vol. XXV). Subsequently it was thoroughly revised and enlarged by the learned author. This section is much helpful in selecting the similimum as per the typical season aggaravation or amelioration.
In the section of Moon Phases he refers exclusively to cured cases and undertook them in order to determine the relative importance of remedies in this respect. He analyzed and compared the action of certain remedies in the various phases of moons like growing, full, waning and new moon and depicted their action in a form of a chart. This work was published as a book in 1935.
We trust this unique publication may prove a useful reference table in the hands of the conscientious prescriber.
