You have a Repertory on the screen that looks like the book
on your desk, only it is much more flexible & powerful.
Customization in all areas: one can choose to see
the sub-rubrics and remedies or hide the sub-
rubrics and remedies.
Type any word and “instantly” see “every” rubric
associated with it and scroll down to select only the
rubric u want to record.
Select a remedy to see the rubrics associated with it
or select a family or even two families combined, to
see the associated rubrics.
The version of mind-mapping, long advocated by
Louis Klein, that groups rubrics into “themes”.
By creating themes in this way one have a clear,
visual representation of what is more central to
the case. This Approach, unique to Mac
repertory, focuses your thinking and leads to
more consistent results.
“The theme analysis is tuned to emphasize the
generals – collecting a pool of likely remedies –
and then use the peculiars to zero-in-on the
precise one”. You have complete control over the
analysis; emphasize small remedies, nosodes,
polychrests, plants, sycotic remedies , mineral
remedies and much more.
With many beautiful graphs, mac repertory
excels at presenting the best remedies for a case.
Mac Repertory turns repertories into “valuable
tools for research.” For example: With a couple of
clicks one can discover all the rubrics of anxiety
having the remedy medorrhinum, all the rubrics
of anxiety having remedies medorrhinum and
arsenic or all the rubrics of anxiety having the
remedy medorrhinum but not arsenic.
