• In subsection C. , symptoms of Direction are
  given in chapter belonging to the organ in
  which it commences
• In a complex group of symptoms, if one
  symptom follows another and if they are in
  same organ, it is given in section I, subsection
  C. If they are in different organs, it is given in
  section II.

                       www.similima.com                12
• As our Materia medica is still incomplete,
  sometimes remedies are selected by Analogy

• For this we need a collective view of the
  medicines

• Specific character, Anatomical Regions,
  General character, Sequence, Direction, Sides
  and Conditions(including concomitants).

                     www.similima.com             13
• To obtain collectives according to Specific
  character; all the medicines from all the
  subdivisions which agree in that particular
  point, are placed under every rubric in
  Section I A and in principal subdivision of
  Section I B.

• All the varieties of that symptom are given
  separately enclosed in brackets.
                     www.similima.com           14
• Collectives of medicines agreeing with regard

  to Anatomical region, Functional symptoms,

  General character, Sequence, Direction and

  Sides are given under their respective rubrics.

• In these collectives, doubtful symptoms are

  only bracketed.
                     www.similima.com               15
• In rubrics, Right then Left, Above then Below

  etc and in reverse, the clinical symptoms are

  marked with asterick to facilitate the

  application of Hering’s law of inverse

  direction.

                     www.similima.com             16
Conditions are made useful by showing

o Conditions belonging to any symptom in whole body

o belonging to the organ generally

o belonging to each anatomical region

o belonging to each variety of symptoms in the organ
  irrespective of sub region to which they belong

o Those belonging to each individual symptom.

                    Gradation
• Hahnemann & Boenninghausen insisted upon the
  necessity of medicines in Repertory being
  distinguished by different types to show the
  relative value.
• This is done by counting the number of
  pathogenetic symptoms of medicines obtained
  from different provers irrespective of their
  conditions or concomitants.
                       www.similima.com          21
                       Gradation
• If the total number of provers upon whom a
  symptom has occurred amounts to 1 – 25th of total
  number of symptoms of the medicine, it is placed in
  1st rank.
• From 1 – 50th to 1 – 25th , it is given 2nd rank.
• From 1 – 75th to 1 – 50th , it is given 3rd rank.
• Below 1 – 75th , it is given 4th rank.
• Doubtful symptoms are bracketed.
