* The doctors at The Banerji Clinic in Kolkata, India see 1,000 patients a day, every day. 10 physicians/homeopaths see 100 patients every day! They record all of this information and distill all these case details to be able to share this valuable information with the rest of us.
** Repertory: the book of homeopathic symptoms, listing homeopathic remedies associated with each symptom. "The definition of word repertory [sic] originates from the Latin word 'repertoire,' which means any store or stock, (e.g. of information), that can be drawn upon. … In modern terms, the repertory represents the clinical and research database for the practice of homeopathic medicine. The general information contained in these books are derived from history, provings, clinical practice, research, physiology and toxicology" (Murphy 2003, p. VI).
*** Rubric: the symptom entry listed in the homeopathic repertory.
Look for upcoming articles about the details behind the Repertory and the Rubrics and Provings.

I am passionate about homeopathy and I love sharing this passion. Having a working knowledge of homeopathy shouldn't be kept a secret. If people have the ability to help themselves, their children and their friends when they have minor ailments, life just gets better for everyone. That is the purpose behind Ruminating on Remedies.
