The golden rule is: try and eliminate the rubric that we have selected. Similarly try and rule out the remedies that come up after repertorisation, when a rubric or a remedy cannot be ruled out or eliminated then, it assumes significance and solidarity.
Proceed by taking such qualities of that person which run through and through his personality in various situations or circumstances, in childhood, youth and adulthood…… again bearing in mind that they have to be solid and beyond doubt.
Take those qualities of a person which are unshakeable or which describe him as a person. These are his innate characters or traits
Some examples of innate characters and Traits: <ul><li>Conscientious about trifles (Diligent). </li></ul><ul><li>Mildness. </li></ul><ul><li>Positive ness. </li></ul><ul><li>Exuberance. (Enthusiasm) </li></ul><ul><li>Courageous. </li></ul><ul><li>Cowardice. </li></ul><ul><li>Unfeeling , hard-hearted. </li></ul>
These are the characters which are determined by the genetic makeup of that individual. So these innate characters are given so much value.
Out of all the genes available to man some are expressed while some are not (repressed). The expressed genes determine not only his physical makeup but also what diseases he is prone to develop. … they determine the constitution of the person
So what we are taking as prescriptive totality to arrive at the simillimum is nothing but the totality of the expressed and dominant genes in that individual This is the “ Genetic constitutional simillimum” of Dr. Prafull Vijayakar.
These are subject to change only when there is a major causative factor. The genetics in man will always resist change. The causative factor will be such as is analogous to his or her constitution. E.g. only those people who are sensitive to grief will be found under A/f grief. So the way we look or read the rubrics should change drastically
The change in the phenotype will be most definitely found in the related remedies of his earlier constitution i.e. either complementary or followed well by..….. Once we understand this it becomes very simple to perceive the logic behind the relationship of remedies. This answers the long debated question of whether the constitution of man can change or not.
In Homoeopathy a symptom assumes importance if it represents him as a whole rather the situation.
Select a rubric which runs through and through that person, which has not changed over the years or that which resists change i.e. one that is a genetic or an innate character of his person. This is usually from the non diseased group of rubrics.
For the selection of any rubric we need to be very well conversant with the cross references of the rubric under consideration. The exercise of compiling and putting together rubrics which are similar in meaning but may mean or imply something slightly or grossly different can always come in handy.
E.g. rubrics of Inferiority complex : <ul><li>lack of confidence, </li></ul><ul><li>contemptuous of self , </li></ul><ul><li>reproaches himself, </li></ul><ul><li>Timid bashful, appearing in public. </li></ul><ul><li>Del: diminished. </li></ul><ul><li>Del: dirty. </li></ul><ul><li>Del: failure / fail he will. </li></ul><ul><li>Undertakes nothing lest he fail. </li></ul>
E.g. For the people who are rude and harsh towards others: <ul><li>Contemptuous </li></ul><ul><li>Rudeness </li></ul><ul><li>Insolence </li></ul><ul><li>Abrupt, harsh </li></ul><ul><li>Cursing swearing , </li></ul><ul><li>Abusive, insulting. </li></ul><ul><li>Impertinence. </li></ul>
E.g.: Rubrics representing lively or social people. <ul><li>Vivacious </li></ul><ul><li>Sociability </li></ul><ul><li>Exuberance </li></ul><ul><li>Exhilaration </li></ul><ul><li>Company desire for </li></ul><ul><li>Loquacity </li></ul><ul><li>Mirth, hilarity </li></ul><ul><li>Cheerful. </li></ul>
Our repertories are not perfect and we need to be aware of the different flaws in them by knowing all the cross references of any particular rubric lest we miss out the remedy despite taking big and solid rubrics.
E.g. a big rubric like vivacious containing more than a 100 remedies does not cover Stannum met which is the only 3 mark remedy in the rubric Exuberance! Sociability contains Nat-carb as one of the medicines which is one of our most misanthropist remedies!
We should try not to settle down with anything less than the simillimum. It may not be possible every time but at least our efforts should be directed towards that end!
Timid but not yielding: bar-carb, gels, calcarb, calc-sulph Timid and yielding: lyco , puls , m-arct, nux vom , phos, sep, sil. Timid but not shy : Gels, kali- carb , lyco, plb-met, sep, borax , ars-alb Timid and shy: Puls , Bar-carb , coca, petro, sulph, calc Timid but not coward : Nat-carb , Ars-alb, Carbn-sulph, alumn, coca Timid & coward : Gels, bar-carb, lyco, puls , silica, stram,
Another way studying the same rubric is to study the groups of families <ul><li>e.g.Timidity covers carbons in maximum percentage followed by sulphurs, kalis, arsenicums, metals……. This helps us to understand that carbons are most universally timid followed by sulphurs. </li></ul>
If we study the repertory in the above mentioned manner then we can realise the full potential of not only the repertory but also our own potential to a significant level. We will be able to do justice to our unused talent, reading, to our practice and to our patients
It is a very vast subject and requires a lot of application, perseverance and determination conjoined with a passionate desire to prescribe better.
A desire to come out routinism or drug pictures fixed in our minds over a of period time. It also requires a lot of self-evaluation & criticism, otherwise we land up using the same group of rubrics or the same group of remedies.
