Discussion of the 3 parts-
- Part I – describes the Isopathic Concretology. After the introduction and part 1, there is an Index arranged alphabetically consisting of medicines, symptoms, clinical conditions, technical terms etc.
- Part II: this part lays down the Materia Medica of Biotherapic Nosodes, consisting therapeutic hints of 66 nosodes.
Part III: The last part is the Repertory Index [with Differential diagnosis, Clinical diagnosis & Posology] laying down 3 parts-
- List of Remedies with abbreviations
-Introduction – written by Ratnakar V. Patwardhan
- Index – in alphabetical order, from Abdomen to Zoster (Herpes) Zosterian.
It contains 35 nosodes. Only the available drugs have been included. Although this book is structurally similar to a repertory, it does not really constitute a repertory. Dr. Ratnakar said it is a ‘Word Index of Nosodes’. Here, medicines are not graded. Rubrics are arranged alphabetically starting from ‘Abdomen’ and ending in ‘Zoster (Herpes) Zosterian’. Cross-references are given where needed.
This book is a great book on Nosodes to look upon with no necessity to wander here and there for the subject.
