Is repertorization necessary in all cases?



Homeopathy based on Individualisation. We take a history from patients, that history makes it easy to diagnosis clinically. So Case-taking is mandatory to understand a patient thoroughly, otherwise, proper curable treatment is not possible.

The schedule is as follows: (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

A patient comes to the physician
The physician examines the clinical parameters
Then starts to take case-history regarding disease
Now the physician does the totality of symptoms
After evaluation of symptoms
Now the question of Repertorization
Lastly, select the best similar medicine.

There are two types of disease in homeopathy
Acute disease
Chronic disease

If we have proper knowledge about allied subjects and Materia Medica along with experience, then repertorization comes automatically in mind without time taken during a conversation with the patient.

Repertorization does not mean, taking external help always. An expert physician can repertory easily during treatment.

So if you prescribe a medicine, how can you distinguish well-selected medicine from less selected medicine without repertorization?

Examples: (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

1) One patient comes to your clinic with a sprain of the ankle joint.
There are many medicines for pain, but what do you need? here is the question of repertorization.

The medicines are Rhus Tox, Arnica M, Symphytum, Bellis Per, Hypericum, Ruta G, Calc Flour, Ferrum Phos, Actea R, and so on.

In my opinion, Bellis Per is the fittest medicine. I repertories in mind instant.

2) One patient comes to your clinic with an abdominal colic.
There are many medicines for abdominal colics, such as Colocynthis, Diascoria, Belladonna, Nux Vom, China, Carbo Veg, Lycopodium, Cuprum Met, Mag Phos, etc.

You may find in repertory books like this serial medicines with grade and position.
If you do know, which medicine is similar to that patient you can easily prescribe. So here is the repertory which you have done in mind instantly.


You can treat acute or chronic, you need repertory. It does not mean, taking medicinal knowledge from our books always. It means prescribe a near medicine that will be helpful to the patient.
